Blue Waters has to be one of my favourite properties just for the staff, who are super friendly and professional at the same time - they really made my stay and can't do enough for you! Being welcomed with a mango martini, cold towel and the sound of the steel pan has to be one of the best ways to arrive in paradise!
The resort feels luxurious and special but is also relaxed and laid back at the same time. There are a number of watersports on offer on the main beach and with 2 other coves to choose from it's really easy to find you own space to chill out. With a variety of accommodations to suit all, from interconnecting rooms for families up to the luxurious Rock Cottage (truly wow!), this property really does have something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed the Cove Suites as each block has it's own pool and offers stunning sea views, even from the bath!
Dining is a treat, with the Cove Restaurant coming out top, but also enjoyed a relaxed lunch at the Palm - you certainly won't be disappointed. Offering a kids club, a fantastic spa, live bands and sporting activities all within easy reach of St Johns, Blue Waters really is paradise!
