Stayed here for 2 weeks in a beach front room, on all inclusive, and had a wonderful time. Not all rooms are the same size, but our one was close to reception and very spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and, even after the first meeting remembered your name and preferences. The food was very...

The staff here are all amazing, nothing is too much trouble. Bedrooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The bathrooms in our block (200s) could be updated. My husband (6'2") found the shower too low. The food in Palms Restaurant is excellent, with good choices. The grounds are spectacular. Altogether a perfect place to relax, except for the sometimes too...

The most attentive staff you can imagine. Wonderful views. Fantastic food. I chose this location to surprise my wife with a 10 year anniversary trip and never have I made a better choice.

A very professional, well-run resort. Friendly and with a pleasant atmosphere. Food much better than expected. Be aware that live entertainment is offered every night from 8.30 until 11p.m. and can be very loud. Clearly some people like this sort of thing but it can make quiet conversation during and after dinner rather difficult short of shouting at one's friends....

Excellent location, food, beaches, pools etc. The service was always with a smile. The bathroom coud do with an update, but this is not a deal breaker. Our problem was one of noise; by day the hotel is peaceful, with the bounty of seeing pelicans, hummingbirds etc., and by evening, hearing tree frogs. From 8pm onward the hotel has loud...

Sitting on the decking by the small beach waiting for the flight home and reflecting on another 12 days spent in paradise at Blue Waters. The service here is remarkable. When we arrived in our beachside room, I went to reception to ask for a bath slip mat and Ipod speakers. When I got back to the room both had...

As many have said before me the hotel has on the whole some great staff and this makes up for a couple of its weaknesses. The grounds are immaculate as are the housekeeping standards but the bedrooms just need a bit of a spruce up. In particular the bathrooms. You travel the world staying in good hotels and find some...

I travelled with my small son and stayed in one of the beach from rooms. I was 'upgraded' from the St James Club at the last minute by my holiday operator so was a bit anxious as on the website the choice for children seemed limited in terms of pools and restuarants but I needn't have worried. It was very...

The hotel was lovely however the service and some of the facilities fell short of the 4.5* rating advertised by BA. Our shower drain blocked frequently and flooded the bathroom and although the maintenance team responded immediately, it did appear to be an ongoing issue. On our last day we increased our room occupation to check out at 5pm, the...

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
