I always use TripAdvisor to plan my vacations. My stay at Blue Water Beach Club included. I was very happy with my choice. I've traveled quite a bit in the last few years. And in doing so I know now that corporate hotels are not an option. Family run or just small places like the BWBC are the only considerations...

we had a condo right next door for several years. So after it was sold we checked out Blue Water since we loved the location: close to shopping, restaurants, trolley stop, and of course, right on the beach. We stayed in apartment 123, a 1-bedroom - more than we needed, but what was available. We were on the ground floor,...

We arrived two days ago to a beautiful private beach right outside our room. Check in was completed by a very friendly woman who went out of her way to answer questions. Thanks to Beth. The room was very clean and decorated with pastel colors. The wiring leaves a lot to be desired as there are extension cords all over...

I just spent a few days at BWBC at Holmes Beach. I really enjoyed it - the beach was gorgeous, my room was immaculately clean, comfortable, and exactly as promised. It is located among some more upscale resorts, but I liked the old-school Florida vibe (kind of like a two story motel from the 50's). Even though it is an...
