“Fantastic”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I will start with the bottom line - Blue Water resort was great value for our family of 6 with kids ages 4 - 9, and we will be going back without question.

From a service perspective, staff were friendly, attentive and clearly wanted to go above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one - special kudos on this front to office staff Najwa, activities and grounds staff Seville and Johnny, and security guard/artist extraordinaire Marvin, to name but a few of the great folks working at Blue Water. As we were vacationing with our family members, the office ensured we were in adjacent villas which was a great convenience for us all.

From an accommodation perspective, we had a terrific ocean front unit (recommended) with ample space for a family of 6 (hard to come by), breathtaking views from all three levels, with all the amenities of home, right at our fingertips. The only minor item on the 'to-do' list should be replacement of the windows/sliders fronting the ocean ... some need mechanical repair (sliders) and some seals were gone causing a somewhat foggy 'lens', but again, this was a minor detail as the views remained predominantly unfettered, and really, who wants to spend too much time indoors in the beautiful Bahamas?! Beds were ample and comfy and our unit was clean and ready just past check-in time, but this minor delay was no issue as we changed into our swim wear in the hospitality suite, and hit the beach!

The property itself is intimate and was frankly perfect for us overall, with a well maintained tennis court, table tennis station, good size heated pool and a great little tiki bar serving awesome Conch fritters, Plantains and of course - ice cold Kalik beer. There are beach towels available daily and bottled water on order. The beach was perfect with ample space, ample loungers, silky sand, providing the opportunity to walk along the water at lower tide all the way up the cable beach stretch. The property provides 24 hour gated security (with friendly and helpful guards). The timeshare residents we met during the week could not have been more welcoming or helpful with great tips and dining suggestions which all proved to be spot-on (Compass Point, Twin Brothers, One & Only Ocean Club ... you know who you are - thanks !)

There is a grocery store a short walk or #10 bus away, many restaurants, cigar shop, beer and liquor stores also all within a quick walk in the warm air. The # 10 bus will take you downtown to experience the sites and sounds (bus system stops at 7pm) and when taxis are in order, keep our man Bertram Wallace (cab 49) busy as he deserves all the business he can get - an honest, helpful and pleasant gentleman who we will be calling for all of our taxi runs the next time we head to Bahamas to visit our friends at Blue Water resort.

Thanks for the great time Blue Water team ... keep the great service focus going!

The Smith family.

Great service: all of the staff from the security guards to the front desk are very friendly and helpful.

Location: easy to get around on the #10 bus to downtown, grocery store or anywhere in between.

Beach: generally high tide in the morning so the beach space is reduced. By noon tide lowers and sand area almost doubles. Essentially only used by people staying at Blue Water, the beach is quiet and no one selling anything (unlike the resorts further east on cable beach). Great for kids.

Overall: an affordable, safe and tidy spot for a family vacation on cable beach.

Be sure to eat at the Fish Fry!!!!

Over all we had a good stay at the Blue water, staff are very nice, friendly and helpful, the beach was small but nice, pool was heated. the bar served great cocktails at a good price and was fun to visit in the evening. The apartments are large and have all you need.. there is a good super market near by and places to eat and drink. A hire car is a good idea.. On the down side the air con was situated in the main bedroom and is very noisy so we turned it off at night, In January this was not a problem. I feel there is some updating to be done around the place, all this said we would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get an apartment away from the front by the road, its a bit noisy!

The resort was not exactly as described in the brochure but then again which place doesn't stretch the truth a little. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was always clean and warm and the beach close by. The units are large and well layed out- 1 King and 4 single for family.
Pros- good location, good price, nice beach, great staff, nice pool area, large units, washer/dryer, internet room near office available. Cons-our unit needed a bit of repair from the screen doors off hinges to windows we couldn't reclose and water dripping through the cupboard either from the tub or rain, could have better/newer beach towels, could have clean windows, gas BBQ instead of coals (not sure if propane BBQ's are viable on the island or not) wifi didn't work most of the time in our unit and a few spices in the unit including salt and pepper would have been a bonus.
Overall, we probably wouldn't stay here again and in fact would probably try a different island altogether as we found Nassau to be a bit dirty with garbage everywhere just a block in from the beach.

Room Tip: Units facing the beach are best

This touristy, yet slightly less pricey area of the island is ideal to get a more local vybe. The employees were helpful and caring, and the services were spot on. The place was not modern, but the price reflected that well. Great little private beach and pool, with a small bar there for drinks when it is too hot. The bus comes right to the front of the hotel, which can take you anywhere on the island. Seemingly a good spot for families, even though I was there on spring break and loved it. We were often out seeing other parts of the island.

Overall a good deal, and I would suggest it to anyone looking for this on Nassau.

-9 below at home and this resort was just what we needed. Great place for all 8 of my family to stay. Plenty of room, nice amenities, easy access to outside services. We walked to Starbucks, the grocery store and hopped on the bus for a quick ride to "Fish Fry". Junkanoo on Bay Street is checked off the bucket list. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Not a 5 star, but GREAT value for the $.

I have stayed here twice as an overnight stop before continuing on the the "real" Bahamas, the Family Islands or Out Islands as the main landers say. Coincidence or not, you generally can't make a same day connection in Nassau to the Out Islands so an overnight in Nassau is necessary. BW Resort fills this need just fine. Not a fan of the populace islands, but love the Family Islands.
