    Our opinion

    Blue Waters is an elegant and casual hotel which enjoys a charming location

    Hotel description

    Only about four miles north of St John’s, Blue Waters enjoys a favoured location on a slight hill which descends to two curved white sand beaches nestling between two small headlands. In fourteen acres of luxuriant tropical gardens bursting with hibiscus, flamboyant and bougainvillaea, Blue Waters offers a wide range of accommodation and holiday facilities, priding itself on a style that is both elegant and casual. The scene is set as you enter through the gardens and approach the magnificent reception and lounge area, through which you can see to the green and leafy terraces beyond. There are 114 spacious rooms, suites, villas and penthouses. All rooms at the hotel have been simply but elegantly furnished with dark wood furniture and fabrics that reflect the tropical hues of sea and sand. The newly upgraded Cove Suites and Beachfront Rooms, along with the numerous other types of room, give spacious accommodation for couples or can comfortably take two adults and two children. There is also the magnificent Rock Cottage, a luxury five-bedroom villa with a fully-equipped kitchen, a jacuzzi and plunge pool. The lush grounds on the hillside sloping towards the Caribbean Sea create a feeling of spaciousness and wellbeing and there is an excellent range of facilities and activities both on the premises and nearby. There are three swimming pools and the hotel offers excellent free water sports for the daytime. A further four pools are available for the exclusive use of Cove Suites guests only. A dedicated spa uses ila Spa products and has indoor and outdoor treatment rooms with an outdoor relaxation pool. Blue Waters offers a range of holistic wellbeing programmes, which encompass fitness regimes, use of the fitness centre, yoga and Pilates classes, stress and sleep management, healthy eating, and presentations on different aspects of their ethos and methods to achieve balance and to recuperate. Complimentary afternoon tea is included daily on the verdant terrace, with views of the sea below and in the distance.  In the evening, there are three restaurants to choose from, including the adults-only Bartleys as well as The Palm Restaurant and The Cove. It is possible to book Blue Waters on an all inclusive basis. Blue Waters offers a high-quality hotel environment, friendly and attentive service and is very good value.
