    Above average”

    Positives : Location excellent as on the beach, excellent gardens and lawns, pool very good, good gym with friendly staff in the gym. Negatives: Many problems with the room - plumbing issues with taps squirting out water/air at times and toilet not flushing, safe not working then replaced with an unbolted safe, TV reception on and off, room key holder broken, dirt stains bathroom sink area. I also found the Sri Lankan dishes not of an authentic high calibre, certainly expect better from " 5 Star " hotel. Will not pay to stay here again

    Surpassed Expectations”

    This hotel was chosen solely to attend my friend's wedding and having been there multiple times for wedding receptions i particularly never thought of a overnight stay. However when i did ultimately stay, from Starting point from the Doorman to front office to the Restaurant and Housekeeping each and every staff member was extremely helpful, from carrying your sholderbag to serving your plate at restaurant since i was carrung my newborn, it was the amazing support without having to ask that they offer makes this hotel the best. I have stayed in best hotels in SRi Lanka but this was one of my greatest experience, They turned my doubts of staying with newborn being a tough one to a total memorable exp. Mr. Duminda a manager or senior from Front Office, goes out of the way to ensure my baby and i are safely attending the wedding and when departing drops you to the car. I had never imagined this star class service really. Couldn't have Recommended this hotel more. !!!

    I arrived about 12.20pm and was asked to wait 10-15 mins till the room was ready. After 20 mins it was still not ready so I went to the Coffee Shop for something to eat. Service appalling - could not attract anyone for over 15 mins. Ordered a Caesar Salad which came sans dressing, parmesan and anchovies. After about 10 mins managed to attract a v nice waitress who apologised for the delay and brought the missing ingredients in small bowls. Finally got the room about 1.45. Was upgraded from de luxe to superior de luxe! Nice room. Bathroom impractical. A large step up to the toilet and shower. The basin looked nice but when washing, the water splashed over the back - the tap (lever) in an awkward place. Nowhere to hang towels. The toilets downstairs also did not have anywhere to hand a bag. Food was not special.

    Food was disappointing ”

    Usually locals go to Blue waters because the food is excellent. And thats why i came back for my 3rd time. But unfortunately this time the food was so bland and tasteless. Maybe its because there were so many people but still thats when the hotel needs to properly deliver. Disappointed. Dont know whether it was a one time thing. Hoping it is.

    Perfect location, customer service for SL origins not so great!”

    Overall a fabulous location. We stayed with family for a week at the resort. Location is perfect with great sea view. Great gym and open pools. As location is amazing the staff sadly don’t really try hard in terms of customer services. Food was good mainly catered for tourists and not much of a variety in authentic Sri Lankan food. The working staff were always very friendly and helpful but senior female staff were difficult and not so friendly eg refusing to swop lunch buffet vouchers for dinner buffet vouchers, presuming those of Sri Lankan origin living abroad couldn’t possibly afford to stay at the resort. Uber unavailable at location sadly hotels transportation is a significantly overpriced. Find another car company to arrange travels to Colombo or airport and make at least two thirds of a saving. Overall a great experience, Sri Lanka is beautiful!!!

    Four star hotel serving one star food.”

    Nice hotel, nice rooms and nice location, so it's a real disappointment that food was poor. The range of dishes on offer was ok but most dishes were warm at best and cold at worst. Hot food should be just that, hot! All three adults in the group also agreed that the dishes were too salty and in a couple of instances undercooked.

    Great hotel but don't use your desk for transportation ”

    Though I arrived in the midnight, I could see beauty of the hotel. And it was more than expected. I love both exterior and room, clean, beautiful and well designed. Everything was fantastic except the tourdesk. I asked the one way taxi to Bentota, it was about double price of fare from the airport to this hotel, though distance is half. In addition, they rise price when I make payment... awful. So just enjoy the hotel life but stay away from your desk! Then you will enjoy it :)

    Blue water is a hotel right on the beach front just a small distance from Colombio. Has all the enmities of a big hotel - goof gym, nice pool and spa. There's not a huge amount to do in the area unless u like to loll under palm trees but breaks up distance to cities further south.

    Room left open by cleaner overshadowed trip”

    Unfortunately the good points regarding this hotel were overshadowed by our room door being left open, perhaps by cleaner, when we reported we didn't even get an apology, then on checkout were charged Mini bar costs we did not use, happened to be from same date that door was left open. after 10 mins the overcharge was waived but still no apology. Other features of hotel ok but room costs very inflated for Christmas did not feel value for money, our next hotel has been much better.

    Another perfect visit!”

    This visit is the sixth time we have stayed at the Blue Water Hotel, and we love it! The rooms are stunning (we were upgraded from a standard room to a deluxe free of charge!), the grounds are exceptional and well maintained, and the pools are delightful and soothing. Every room has a stunning view of the ocean and the hotel grounds, especially when the elephants arrive on the beach and the birds return at sunset. We enjoyed using the gym and the squash court, and the staff is always friendly and cheerful. The food was excellent, especially the Sri Lankan menu, and anything at the Nautilus restaurant. The Blue Water Hotel is the perfect place to get away from the world and enjoy a peaceful and serene environment. The architecture is amazing, providing a calm and relaxing atmosphere carefully integrated into the sweeping landscape. This building is one of Geoffrey Bawa's masterpieces and should be experienced in person. We have enjoyed our past visits and look forward to returning in the future.
