We stayed in Bleu for a week in January 2014 and absolutely loved our stay. We really enjoyed being in a small inn with just 11 units, and every room has an ocean view. The rooms are modern and clean, and are set up as apartments, complete with a laundry machine, stove, and dishwasher. The laundry ended up being incredibly helpful after getting our clothes salty in the ocean all day, and it was great to have the option to cook dinner a few nights.
The location is amazing - right on the beach, and a quick 5-10 min walk along the beach to the amazing French restaurants in Grand Case. We explored all over the island, and Grand Case was by far our favorite town, so glad to be there. They have a weekly festival every Tuesday night in downtown Grand Case that was a lot of fun - parade, street food, crafts, etc.
Remember to pack: converter/ power adapter if coming from the US (it is French outlets and voltage, I believe 220V); laundry detergent (not provided, but you can get from local grocery). The breakfast is pretty basic - some french bread and chocolate croissants - so you may want to supplement with some yogurt and cereal from the local grocery.
The only reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is that we were on the ground floor, which is not as private as the first and second floors. The patio of our apartment was right next to the outdoor shower that all of the other guests use as they come out of the water, so we didn't feel privacy on our patio or in our room with the blinds open. (Though they do have amazing light blocking shades for sleeping in in the morning). The front desk was also right on the other side of the wall from our bed. There is someone sitting at the front desk for ~3 hours in the morning and ~3 hours in the evening, which made our bed feel a bit less private. It might make sense for them to charge different rates for the ground floor vs first floor, since other than the ground floor concern we absolutely loved the place.
Overall, a wonderful stay! Frederick and Maya were both wonderful and helpful, the location can't be beat, and the apartment are clean and modern with an incredible ocean view. Definitely the best place we saw on the island, much nicer than the huge resorts. We would definitely go back.
