Blue Waters Inn

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

Set within 46 acres of lush tropical grounds, upon its own private bay, the Blue Waters Inn not only offers an idyllic, peaceful location — perhaps even the most beautiful on Tobago — it’s a very friendly place to relax too. With views of the turquoise ocean from almost every angle, the gently shelving beach offers opportunity galore for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. In fact, this beachfront hotel boasts its own on-site PADI diving facility, so don your wetsuit and explore a wonderful world underwater, with sites such as Angle Reef, which is perfect for beginners to the more challenging Japanese Gardens, Blackjack Hole and London Bridge. Bird watching is another favourite pastime, the surrounding rainforest is home to many exotic species. Small and intimate, the hotel is nonetheless perfect for families as well as couples with rooms overlooking the beachfront and ocean, and freestanding bungalows for those seeking something a little more spacious. Dining is at Aqua, serving sumptuous à la carte specialities and some of the most delicious cocktails you’ve tasted!

Driving into the access road to BWI really feels like entering a slice of paradise. The location is undoubtedly straight from a movie! The staff was extremely accomodating. The rooms can use some renovations and updating as there were issues with the AC and some difficulty with the doorknob to our room. All in all, a real escape to paradise.

To say our vacation at Blue Waters Inn was amazing would be an understatement!!! This gem of a hotel is everything you could ask for. We thought we may get bored of eating at the restaurant for every meal but that definitely was not the case. The food was top class ... I wanted to try everything on the menu but we were only there for three nights! The staff are all friendly and ensured that we got everything we wanted out of our vacation. A little snorkeling, relaxing, drinking and eating. We did it all!! Thank you blue waters for letting us experience paradise. We will be back... Over and over again! Read less

Every year my family and i take a Christmas vacation to rest, reflect and enjoy the Tobago Paradise but our experience at Blue Water Inn made it a challenge. We paid almost 10k for their all inclusive package which was extremely limited and deficient BTW.. so for breakfast if you want bacon and eggs you can only get one or the other, but then what is the definition of all inclusive if guests are limited? For dinner the chef only paid attention to certain guests and it felt like we were begging for a little TLC in the Food/ Drink department. I had to literally ask for water during our stay cause it would seem no one is paying attention to the all inclusive guests and their well being. I will say the staff are very well mannered and pleasant and they looked like they are doing the best with their limited resources because they value their jobs but the managers and whomever is in charge needs to ensure that their ALL inclusive guests are treated better for the money they are putting forward. BWI take a look at inefficiencies because this will hurt your business. A failing customer ratings/ customer experience is not looking good for you.. step it up! Best of luck! Read less
