I would like to take the time to just say a quick message about the 10/10 experience me and my wife had at Blue Waters. Where do I start...... Firstly with Covid-19 and trying to organise a wedding it is very tricky and can be filled with problems. However Mandie The Wedding planner for Blue Waters made the whole experience very pleasurable and pain free. We are forever grateful for the professionalism she showed us during our Wedding. Mandie was very attentive to our needs and reassured us every step of the way. She calmed our nerves when we had doubts and were blessed with an amazing wedding day. I could not ask for a better experience or a better wedding planner. Thank you so much Mandie and the Blue Waters Team for making it possible. I would also like to give special mentions to Ann the photographer who was very attentive and took some amazing photos on our day. Jascian who was one of the waiters was very professional and gave service with a smile. Very attentive and a delight to be around. Very good and friendly man. Caroline was very nice to us and was caring. These are just a few names that I could think of from the top of my head. The whole staff on the whole were very attentive and we felt special whilst we were there. My wife echoes the same feelings and has high praises for Blue Waters and the Team. The food and drink was on point and I would definitely give that a 10/10. Absolutely no complaints here. Flavours from the food were sublime. The drinks were on Tap and were really chilled and nice. We could not ask for better food and drink. When we return to Antigua we will definitely be staying at Blue Waters again. Thank you guys for giving us a memorable experience that me and wife can relive over and over again. Until we see again bye for now. From Anthony & Sharna Read less

The amazing reservation team, Shenice, Ossia and Tasean were so helpful booking just the right accommodation. We stayed at Rock Cottage, a spacious, large and luxurious 5 BR villa with 2 pools, a private bar and many sun decks to enjoy. The grounds are meticulously cared for by a hardworking, super-friendly staff. The villa was amazing and luxurious but the real gem of this resort is the staff. Nicole, our incredible and accommodating concierge checked in with us daily and was always just a text away-she seemed to know what we needed before we did. Beautiful and bubbly Saron and Winsia greeted us at every meal. They knew us so well they would anticipate our orders. Chef Roy catered a Michelin star worthy meal in our villa of fresh lobster. Masterfully prepared and beautifully presented the pride in his delicious food is very evident. Kevin, the GM is always around the resort, checking in to say "hello" and sets a warm and welcoming tone at the resort. Romaine delivered fresh drinks to us and Akeem was always ready with plenty of ice - we loved talking with them. Quincy, Jason and Tario at the bar made the BEST drinks and would craft a new cocktail every day. Delicious! Amba in housekeeping is a treasure and kept everything in order for us with a super sweet disposition. We will absolutely return to Blue Waters. It felt as though we were with a warm, gracious and generous family. I have never hugged so many people at departure as I did when we left. Outstanding in every sense. Read less

My teenage son and I escaped to Blue Waters for his spring break after a long year of no travel during Covid. We stayed in the Cove Suites which was a huge oceanfront room with a pull out sofa for him and large bathroom to share. The resort and grounds are well maintained and the views are incredible. The staff is, by far, the main attraction at Blue Waters! Nicole is concierge extraordinaire, taking care of spa appointments, restaurant reservations and excursions with ease and a smile. We enjoyed seeing and chatting with her every day; she felt like an old friend by the time we left! Kevin, the manager, introduced himself when we arrived and was extremely welcoming and pleasant. Although there were very few guests at the hotel due to covid travel restrictions, all of the staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. Also a shout out to Rocky for setting us up with paddle boards and Owen for taking us on a fun snorkeling adventure! Antigua is a gorgeous island with the friendliest people - we can't wait to return! Read less
