Superb luxurious resort

Rusper, United Kingdom

This was our first time here having had it recommended. We will be back for sure as we absolutely loved it. Have to say it is so rare to experience such consistent high standards of service in the Caribbean but Bluewaters excels. The staff (so many long serving which speaks for itself) were all so friendly, professional and demonstrated a real desire to care and serve their guests. The hotel location is superb nestled in the north of the island with 3 small but lovely beaches. The hotel rooms were well appointed and comfortable (we were in a superior hillside room) bathrooms were lovely and all the Elemis products were lovely. We were all inclusive and were delighted by the range and quality of food. What really stood out was that even in the main restaurant in the evenings there was on most days an ala carte menu with really superb dishes. It didn’t feel like a “bun fight” as so often is the case in these main all inclusive restaurants. The Cove offered great food as too did Bartley’s the Asian restaurant. The atmosphere and feel throughout was exclusive and upmarket whilst not being stuffy or pretentious. Entertainment was just pitched right. The hotel never felt crowded although it was near full occupancy, due to extensive grounds and so many places to sit. There was a really friendly feel to the hotel - guests were really friendly, many of whom return year after year. We can totally see why and feel honoured to have experienced Bluewater and be adopted into the family. Can’t wait to return.

Wonderful hotel, amazing staff, highly recommended.

United Kingdom

This is a stunning hotel with the staff in general being attentive and smiling. They even know your names. Special mention of Gina and Jasper. They went above and beyond in making sure our holiday was just fantastic. Charming Owen and the watersports team are also lovely to meet. The sailing boats are excellent and the area was good to sail in, but the weather at times conspired against us. The food quality is top notch, and the Cove in particular is a beautiful setting. There’s a gym with top quality equipment too. The beach is wonderful. Soft sand, stony part, then soft sand again. Spent most swimming time in the sea. Lots of excellent quality towels, even the beach towels would be excellent quality in any other hotel bathroom. The bed is great, the rooms excellent. The outlook from the room is fantastic. We can’t find words enough to say how good this hotel is. Just to say, the weather in January 2020 has been dreadful. So much rain! Sailing was closed for many days. Small craft warnings for whole island.
