Blue waters is a very nice place
Blue waters is a very nice place to live, and enjoy your stay in DURBAN. People here are very nice and kind, close to the beach, close to the Casino, close to the shopping mall.

Blue waters
Overall experience was excellent, they still had some renovations being done so we could not enjoy the pool area. Breakfast was a feast and staff were friendly, would go back any day.

Perfect Location
We had a great stay, location is very central, could walk along the beachfront. Magnificent views from our room, gorgeous sunrises. Food was excellent at all of the restaurants including breakfast. The people 'famous' pizzas were delicious. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Friendly hotel staff. We would certainly stay again. Only downside was that people can smoke on their balconies and that can waft into your room as a non-smoker with young kids that was unpleasant.
