Recent guest reviews
Just returned from a weeks vacation in Saint Lucia where we stayed at Blu. The hotel is in an excellent location on the Rodney Bay Strip. Less than five minutes walk to the beach and 10 mins Taxi to the Gros Islet Street Party. The staff was excellent and welcomed us with Adult Beverages (Rum Punch). Don't miss the Managers Welcome Party on Thursday. General Manager Cindie and staff will attend to every and any need. We will return to Blu.
This place needs a total re-do. Broken down and a mess. Water was not working in our room, dirty sheets in my sister's family's room. Air was minimal. The staff did move our rooms to room that did not have those issues, but hotel is very run down. Thankfully we were there for only one night before getting on our charter catamaran.
Checked in and checked out within hours. The hotel is in urgent need of an upgrade! This hotel misrepresents itself online. I asked for a refund on our 4 booked nights and received a refund for 1 night only, when the Manager was aware of the hot water and water situation the moment we checked in. The moment we checked in I requested soap and paper tissues as none was placed in the bathroom. I am still waiting. The hotel was informed of my Birthday in advance, yet nothing special was done for me. To be totally honest one night refund I did not mind, as I was not staying at this hotel another night.
We were greeted on arrival with a welcome drink and all of the staff were very friendly. I had phoned in advance to say that it was going to be my boyfriend's birthday the day we arrived and the staff had decorated the bed with happy birthday and provided a birthday cake and a small bottle of prosecco which I thought was a really nice touch! The hotel is in a great location with a short walk to both the beach and the restaurants and bars. The pool was nice. Very comfortable sun loungers and we had the pool to ourselves a few times. The poolside bar was great for cocktails. The hotel could do with a bit of a repaint on the balcony railings etc but it was good value for money. The bedroom and balcony were a very good size and the cleaner came everyday. I would recommend the hotel.
The room was small and I didn't like the breakfast. The staff at the front desk we're great however I didn't like that we didn't have a microwave in our room and no glasses or utensils. There was also no refrigerator in the room just a chiller which I also didn't approve of, the bed on the other hand was very comfortable.
Our stay at this hotel was as a result of us not being able to receive a refund from Buccament Bay for which we had previously booked. The staff were very pleasant and the chef was very accommodating in preparing vegetarian meals for us however the hotel needs a total upgrade. The room was clean however the bathroom needs renovating. The WiFi was very poor and could not be accessed from the room, breakfast area and kept dropping at the bar and dining area.
Very pleasant and nice people, but three elements of irritation made this stay mediocre. The breakfast is poor (at least from an european perspective), the wifi was very bad (for half of the time it did not work at all), and after heavy rain the water from the outside hallways would flow into the rooms... and due to the great location, the hotel was quite expensive.
My five friends and i were very disappointed with this place, i guess reviews are here for a reason. The hotel staff were friendly inviting but the kitchen staff at breakfast were very rude not pleasant at all. This hotel also needs a paint job and the pictures DO NOT look like the actual rooms.The hotel opposite is much nicer.I only liked this hotel since it was close to the beach but thats it. The price from the hotel to the airport using their taxi was expensive also $25 USD for a ten minute drive.Do not book this place you will regret it
Yes Blue is a bit tired in places and needs a lick of paint,and yes our bathroom did need an update, BUT we had a great time at Blu! Our bedroom was fine, the staff are lovely, totally charming and couldn't do enough for us, Any requests were swiftly responded to. Pool area, bar and dining area were fine.. Not sure about the "numerous" stray cats that a previous reviewer talked about, there were a couple at breakfast who did no harm and didn't bother us or the other guests, and I defy anyone not to like Blu the hotel cat! Food was excellent, good choice at breakfast (different hot food each day and eggs cooked to order) and we we also had some enjoyable evening meals.The chef was flexible and we appreciated this. Reduit Beach less than a five minutes walk away and a 20 minute walk gets you into Rodney Bay shopping area. We had a lovely, relaxing, chilled holiday, which is was what we came for!
The pictures paint this place to be very high end and some what luxurious but it is far from. The place is pretty run down but the staff are so friendly you can't help but turn a blind eye. The place needs a paint job and a major face lift in order to get itself back in the game!!! The breakfast is nice, local dishes along with some known ones. There are numerous "stray" cats present FYI. The room was not too bad my only complaint would be the degrading bathroom. Shower stall very small, the entire bathroom just needs some elbow grease! Maybe it's my interior designer eye but I can see the potential in the place and understand that it once was beautiful and someone just needs to get it back to that because the employees there make it livable.
