Beautiful Getaway
Really enjoyed our stay with Blue Water. The beach is privately situated and our kids loved the pool.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Friendly staff but limited menu, very bad internet (then completely off after heavy rain), not too good service in terms of response. Location is good. Activities not as great. Overall, we enjoyed the stay, the rooms were spacious - the mattress was bad (dipped in the middle) and the roof leaked through the lights fixture (and other places) during heavy rains. I definitely do NOT regret going, it was a good experience but would not go back.

Disappointing
The rooms were OK but the maintenance was not good, for example, the lock on the door was installed backwards and the lock hardly connected with the door frame. The door was also not a proper fit with space around the edge of the door and the frame where persons could look in if they wanted. The inlet on the lake which fronted the property was polluted and there even appeared to be sewage overflow from the next property into the inlet. A health hazard. There were no warning signs present by the water but in fact peddle boats, etc. The two positive spots were the friendly staff and the good Indian food.
