I travelled in 2013 with my family, and my first thought was... OUTSTANDING!
Reception - Absolutely beautiful, plenty of seats and stuff, staff there are wonderful, help with anything, always smiling! You can also see the pool from the window at the far end of the reception, looks lovely!
Food/Restaurant- Food was a bit samey, not much variety, but the food that was there was extremely tasty and was much better than expected! As for the restaurant, it was rather small, but you could sit wherever you wanted and there is an exit at the side of the restaurant which takes you straight to the pool areas.
Pool - Two pools, a large one which was always warm as it was in the sun and the sun was there from about 9am-6pm. The other was a shaded kids pool which was usually cold but warmed up once you'd been in for a while. There are two slides. Pool is a bit small but everyone gets a chance to go in anyway.
Outside of the hotel- it is a beautiful place, a bit of a culture shock. If you get the chance, DO go on the jeep safari.
Rooms- Large rooms. Beds were rather hard though. We got used to them as the week went on. Rooms were gorgeous and there are usually large balconies.
Wifi- There is free wifi but only in reception, if you go out of the reception you will lose connection but the wifi is very fast and works well in reception.
Evening entertainment-There wasn't much for adults. For kids there is a kids disco and my sisters loved it. Afterwards there are various things. The people who work there do try and make it as good as possible but i thought the only good thing they had done was the karaoke on the last night, which was really good but other than that, i didnt really like the entertainment so if you want to go to bed at night but you're drawn to the evening entertainment, you should probably just give it a miss.
Bathroom- Full facilities, shower, bath, hairdryer, sink etc etc.
If you are thinking about coming here, DO IT. THIS HOTEL IS THE BEST I'VE EVER BEEN TO, IT'S ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. C O M E T O B L U E B A Y S P L A T I N U M. !!!
Love you blue bays hotel!!
