always a lovely place but service can be off

We stayed in a suite in Cove Villas, a quiet lovely room with a nice patio and sea view. Blue Waters has always been my favorite on the north of the island, even the service could be not as good as expected given the cost and the reputation. This time our villas manager promised a few items and NEVER delivered, nor got back to us that she could not provide them. She simply disappeared after her first introduction upon our arrival, never to return. We did not bothered to call a second time after nobody seemed to know what we were talking about on the first follow-up call. We drove to buy the items ourselves, they were items usually offered in 4/5 star hotels. The day we were checking out, the manager of there hotel was very accommodating, shame that I had some matters to attend and was not able to meet her in person. The rest of the staff in the hotel can either be warm and hospitable the good old West Indian way or the opposite, cold and grumpy.

This resort is splendid. We stayed in a villa so only shared the infinity pool with 6 other couples. The food was wonderful, but the menus of the higher end restaurants didn’t vary while we were there. This is not the place to go for snorkeling however.

Paradise, paradise, paradise

When my wife and I arrived at Blue Waters Resort, we could see that we have booked into luxury. The staff on arrival we so pleasant, bringing cold flannels to cool us down after a long trip from UK - an excellent gesture and making us relaxed straight away. Another great little touch was that we were given re-useable water bottles to refill as and when needed. The aim of this : Blue Waters will achieve their dream to be the 1st Resort in Antigua to eradicate plastic bottles, awesome vision. Breakfast - Amazing, fantastic, superb- All of these words would describe the selections of choice on offer. There’s full English to a massive selection for us Vegetarians. Choose how you would like your eggs (fried, omelette, poached, scrambled) all cooked fresh by the great chefs awaiting your selection...and not forgetting the Champagne, a true bonus to enjoy the panoramic view from the "Palm" restaurant. Views from our room were fantastic - Beach view Room. The facilities in the room were excellent. The choice of pools was amazing, we used the Adult Pool - very relaxing, and with the brilliant "Carolyn" catering for your every need by bringing drinks to you as and when you need. The "Cove" restaurant was fully booked during our stay, but if you like Asian food try "Bartley’s". Delicious. There’s no other way to finish this review by mentioning the Staff - Last but in NO WAY LEAST, - an ultimate team of staff who will make your stay brilliant. Thank you, guys, and see you next year.
