My husband and I had the first week of our honeymoon at Blue Water. As the taxi drove through the streets on our way from the airport our hearts sank. The area in which Blue Water is located is like no other I have experienced, slum like. We felt so relieved when the gates opened to reveal our paradise hotel! Beautiful palms with a view if the beach & ocean greeted us. Once the gates closed we felt safe. & promptly upgraded to all-inclusive as had no intention of leaving our hotel for walk abouts or sampling street food as previously planned. Staff were friendly, helpful & couldn't do enough for us - if perhaps a little slow with service waiting times. Pool was wonderful with excellent attendants. The one downfall was the abundance of crows in the palms. Constant noise & messing on towels & on bodies as we tried to sunbathe. They would swoop down on any unattended food or drinks & mess all over your towels/table. Attendants changed towels and occasional fireworks would attempt to scare them off but only made them fly around noisily & mess everywhere! Very annoying! Rooms were clean and very nice. Mosquito plugs provided and changed daily too.
My husband and I were however very upset at the end if our stay as we're asked by the General Manager to take a 400g package back to London for her! Dried Fish apparently! Absolutely gob smacked! We obviously refused and were told "that's ok, there are other English couples here, I will ask one of them" Highly suspicious & totally disgusting behaviour!!!!
