Had a fantastic holiday at Bluewaters Nov 2016, this was my first visit and hopefully not my last. I stayed 10 nights all inclusive as a solo traveller looking for rest and relaxation. On arrival and check in I was really impressed with the courtesy and professionalism on display from the staff, something which continued during my stay. The staff... More

I booked 7 nights at Blue Waters as a surprise for my, then, girlfriend. The real surprise was that I planned to propose and marry her while in Antigua. This obviously required some top notch organisation by the team at Blue Waters to ensure everything went as planned. All the wedding arrangements (the necessary formal legalities as well as the...

We first came here in June and had such a wonderful time that we decided to re visit again just before Christmas for some winter sun. Well the sun is shinning and the resort feels better the 2nd time around, very impressed that the staff remembered us form our first visit. The food is as great as we remembered and... More

We had the most delightful stay back in October in a Cove Suite which was just stunning. Where do I start with this review??? Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. The place is impeccably run by the GM Alistair Forrest who is always around and takes a genuine interest in his guests - his deputy Gina is exactly the... More

We don't usually visit the same hotel on consecutive years because there are so many beautiful places to see in the world, but after having had a fantastic stay at Blue Waters last year for our silver wedding anniversary, we could not resist the temptation to return for our 26th wedding anniversary this year! We were not disappointed. As soon... More

Upon arrival, we felt like we had the place all to ourselves! The first beach day, we were there all day alone. The only downside to this beach was no drink or food service . The sea is a bit rougher too and don't even think of snorkeling, nothing to see. The beach at the main part of hotel offered... More

I was lucky enough to be able to spend 7 nights here accompanying my Mum from 3rd - 8th November. It was a very special trip for us us and we couldn't have been more impressed.

We spent a lot of time choosing a hotel for our trip to Antigua and based on the reviews we chose Blue Waters. We had a bad start, on arrival being sat in reception for 30 minutes whilst they "completed our check in", only to then be told our room would not be ready for about an hour and that... More

From the minute we arrived and handed cold flannels and rum punches and champagne in the room, we felt totally pampered! Our room was a deluxe beachfront and had lovely views across the sea. It had a massive comfortable bed, lots of storage space and a lovely terrace. The AC and cooling fan worked well. The bathroom was a good... More

Stayed at Blue Waters in mid April for 10 days. The hotel itself is really nice and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The grounds are luxurious and the views stunning. Food was great as well. We especially liked Bartley's, mostly because it was air conditioned and we really liked Garry! We were there for a small ceremony, which... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the North West Corner of Antigua where crystal clear waters lap onto secluded white sand beaches, Blue Waters Resort offers an island paradise. From your personal welcome, complete with cooled scented towel and rum punch, you will realise you are our valued guest. Featuring small secluded beach coves, seven freshwater pools and 17 acres of lush tropical gardens, Blue Waters provides the ideal setting for relaxing days by the pool or on the beach, cocktail in hand, or for reading a good book in the shade of the swaying palm trees. Having gently evolved and constantly improved over 50 years we offer a range of luxuriously appointed rooms to meet the needs of our guests, from hillside rooms in a garden setting to beachside rooms with renowned spectacular ocean views. For the more active guest we offer complimentary watersports, tennis and a newly refurbished gym. Our recently opened Elemis Spa and Hair Salon with its stunning ocean views provides a perfect setting for a pampering treatment or as part of a wedding package. Finish the day off dining at one of our 3 restaurants, each with a different ambience to suit your mood. Our staff is ready and waiting to welcome you. ... more   less
