A truly 5* resort! From the moment we arrived we were impressed! We felt very safe both in the resort and on the island in general in terms of Covid, so absolutely no concerns there. The room was just amazing, huge bathroom, and lovely outdoor seating area just up the stairs from the beach, so you could listen to the waves rolling in at night. The food was delicious each and every meal, with plenty of choice, and flexibility to order off-menu at breakfast & lunch. Considering breakfast would usually have been buffet style, the a la carte was done so well, I've never seen a breakfast like it! The staff were all so friendly and welcoming, whether they were at the front desk, in the bar/restaurants or just passing you by outside, always greeting us with a smile. There was entertainment only a couple of nights during our stay, but expect this to increase as the hotel gets busier. When it was there it was a great mix of music being played! The hotel manager Kevin was always around, on-hand to check everything was running smoothly. I visited the Spa on my last day, and found this to reinforce the 5 star rating! This was our 11th visit to Antigua, our first to Blue Waters resort, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the future! Read less

Have recently returned from another lovely stay at Blue Waters, having been fortunate enough to visit several times before from the UK. Staying as a couple in Room 115 during mid-late July, we had another lovely holiday, and it was so nice to get away! We cannot recommend the Blue Waters highly enough. Kevin and his fabulous team cannot do enough for you, and it is no surprise that we go back time after time. We are already booked for May 2022 staying in a Cove Suite, having switched to a Deluxe Beachfront Room this year for a change. You would be pleased with either option....both are beautiful in their own way. This Hotel has amazing staff, and we are so thankful to them as always for making out stay special. There are too many to mention as they are all outstanding, from the fabulous gardeners who look after the impeccable grounds, to every team member.....they all go out of their way to look after you and make sure that you are happy. Wearing Covid Face Masks ALL day in the 30 degree heat gained them even more respect from us this year.....they truly are amazing. Our special thanks to Natalia this year who was so attentive, and as always Karen, Tramayne, Pearle, Dehra, Sparkle......there are too many to mention. Kevin is always visible and friendly as General Manager, and we could not have received better attention. As always the food is beautiful here, in any of the retaurants that you choose to attend, but it is the friendly attentive service and the impeccable standards that make it a simple decision for us to return regularly. We cannot recommend Blue Waters highly enough, and would thank all the staff for looking after us so nicely at such a difficult time. Even our Covid Testing to return home was arranged by the team there, with help from the On-Site Doctor, Jonathan. We look forward to coming back next year! Read less

My stay was relaxing and fun. My fiancée and I stayed for 4 days with our 1 year old. We’ve read that this hotel is good if you are with a family, but they exceeded expectations with how accommodating they are. The room was clean and a nice size. To our surprise they even provided us with a crib. The bathroom had a beautiful tub along with a separate shower. The grounds were also immaculately maintained! The resort itself was not packed at all and everyone was spread apart. The pool area is excellent as they have a wait staff, where you can order drinks. They have three pools two for families and a adults only one. Directly outside of the main pool area by Veronicas Bar is the beach. My only complaint about that side of the beach has a lot of seaweed. I recommend using the beach by carolyn’s. The food was fantastic every meal was amazing breakfast, Lunch, and dinner. The island bbq thats held on Friday nights was phenomenal. The live steel pan music set the perfect vibe for the evening! I had a very pleasant experience overall. I would definitely recommend blue waters and I would stay again in a heartbeat!! Read less
