Position is perfect. Right near the beach.They could deliver small meals, through room service, at all times at the bar.They lack service in the lounge.More people skills please. Very little human contact. Had to use a wall phone to order. Grumpy little girl delivered food.

I haven't stayed at the actual hotel but from what I've seen it looks really nice. The place is well looked after and is very pretty. What I can rate, is the hotels restaurant. I've been to the restaurant a couple times and it's my favourite place to have pizza and strawberry milkshake! I really recommend going even if you're not staying at the hotel.

Awesome food at the restaurant. Had awesome breakfast buffet. Good vibes at the bar. Requested my room to be changed to a double sized bed - was done quick. Arrived early in Durban. Left bags at their store room to go to the beach.

The entrance of the hotel is beautiful loved the ocean decor against the wall and reception was quite helpful. I expected more from the rooms. Me and my wife booked a room and the room we got was quite dirty, very dusty and many items in the room were broken such as the carpets that were torn and lampshades. The room smelt of urine. We requested to be moved to another room as we were unhappy with the state of the room. They moved us to another room that was much better. Room service was confused with regards to orders the orders on the menu does not match wat is served. I called in and ordered a certain drink exactly as the menu stated but staff didn't know what it was. The view was beautiful.

Recently refurbished, the rooms are decorated with taste, style and attention to every detail of comfort and convenience (lighting, nicely furnished balcony, storage space). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Waters Hotel, staff friendly, our room was fantastic.Friendly and efficient service, spacious room with balcony overlooking the sea, and the breakfasts are truly 5 star standard!

This was my second time staying at the hotel and it's one of my favorites when in Durban. The front facing rooms offer a beautiful view to the sea and beach Prominade. South Beach is just a 5 minutes walk away and you can do some shopping along the way by the local vendors. The hotel room is comfortable will all the basic needs covered. The staff service is excellent, just as the breakfast. The oven pizza at the restaurant is magnificent. The only unpleasant encounter was when we were double charged. We had already payed for the room beforehand and it apparently didn't reflect on their system and we had to pay again when we Checked in. The same happened to another guest as well. This caused unnecessary admin while we just wanted to relax. Luckily the issue got resolved. Overall, a thumbs up experienced and I'll be back soon.

Over 35 year ago my parents booked into this exact hotel to celebrate their honeymoon. Funny my mom was showed to the room but mu dad was turned away to due to the apartheid regime. Today, we have the freedom to stay at any hotel we wish. We are equal and there is no discrimination. I stayed at the hotel for my parents - enjoying what they could not. The hotel is nice, good location with ocean views and the rooms are quite big. The breakfast is also good. Improvements: Customer service needs to improve as our parking bay was issued to someone else and check-in was also delayed. Pic: View from the room
