Blue Haven Hotel - Review Page 2

Accommodations

Superior RoomThe Blue Haven Hotel has 55 rooms in three different categories – Superior, Deluxe and Junior Suite.

Superior rooms are located in the original building. They vary marginally in size, but all offer around 30m2 of internal floor space. The Deluxe rooms are slightly larger and mainly located in the new wings. The primary difference between the two categories is the bathroom size. The Junior Suites are located in both the old and new buildings. They are about 25% larger than the Deluxe rooms and have a supplementary lounge seating area. All room types are decorated and furnished to the same high standard.

The dark mahogany furniture hints at 'Old Colonial' and might look dated were it not for the contemporary painting by a local artist. The way that the hotel combines its historic past with a more modern look is fascinating. Our room was equipped with a king-size four-poster bed, but twin double beds are available, if preferred. The bed was truly comfortable and we really loved the snug tropical-weight duvets that the hotel favours.

Junior Suite with King-Size Double BedStandard furnishings include nightstands with lamps; a side table with chair; an armoire with a small refrigerator and coffee and tea making equipment and supplies; and a comfortable wickerwork padded armchair and footstool.

Direct-dial telephone services are provided in each room, plus complimentary wireless Internet access. It has to be said that the wireless reception in the room was poor and the connection unreliable. However, this is more an issue with the local telecoms provider.

If the Blue Haven Hotel has a signature feature, it must be the large picture window that separate the bathroom from the bedroom in each room. We loved being able to see the sea while showering. An external curtain blind can be lowered to cover the window and the shower curtain provides privacy when required. The shower is combined with a full-size bathtub. A wall-mounted hairdryer and electric shaver socket are provided.

The two-metre wardrobe is split between full-length hanging and wide storage drawers. A decent-sized digital safe is provided.

Junior Suite sitting areaThe Junior Suites are about 2.8m longer than the Deluxe rooms and benefit from an additional small lounge area, attractively positioned a little lower level than the main bedroom area, and furnished with a three-seat settee and armchair arranged around a glass-topped coffee table.

Every room has a small private balcony or patio furnished with two chairs and table. In the newer annexes, the balconies are separated from neighbours by canvas awnings, so retain adequate levels of privacy. Rooms with interconnecting doors are available.

All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned. We far prefer fresh air and so seldom used the air-conditioning. It was so much nicer to throw open the balcony doors and hear the sound of breaking waves.

As expected, rooms are serviced daily. All the laundry and linen were of good quality, with towels being changed daily and bed linen every couple of day, or as needed. Beach towels are provided.
