Great location, right on the bounty beach and next.door to Thresher Shark Divers. Which is also a negative thing because they sometimes keep quite loud parties at night. Staff at Blue Water is over the top friendly and helpful. The lock on the doors however could be reinforced - it looked like it was easily opened with a piece of metal or hard plastic. Another option is safety boxes.
We booked this accommodation to then find out there were no rooms. The accommodation is completely out of the way of any local attractions and the staff were less than helpful. The company operates under 2 names which is both confusing and suspect. We moved from here to nuts huts which I can highly recommend.

This place was clean and tidy. The staff weren't overly helpful but they were friendly enough. Included breakfast which is a great deal as others along the beach were the same price and didn't include breakfast. It is right on the beach in and also very easy to walk into the village.

The bungalows are simple but nice. Hot water, but low water pressure. They turn the electricity off several times a day for 30 minutes to conserve. Wifi is free but very weak (it's an island, that's to be expected). It's right next to Thresher Shark Divers!!! On the beach. Food was ok but there are better and cheaper places to eat further inland. Know that the prices they post at the reception desk were higher than on this site. Make sure you have a copy of your reservation with the prices!!
The location had some of the best sand, though it was a bit down the beach from the Dive shop we ended up going to based off another friend's recommendation. Staff was very cooperative, letting us switch rooms several times (switching even to a less expensive room). Had an issue with the door handle, but we switched rooms and they had the handle switched. Overall not bad for the money spent.
The photo of the room shown in Hostelworld website is not the same as the actual room I was shown. The room I was shown was shoddy looking and I had to negotiate a price for a slightly better "chalet" (standalone room / bungalow with fan only). There are much better budget options around 500m further up the beach from this property.
