Getting there is easy; you can both ride a taxi or public utility jeepneys and just ask the driver to drop you off in Davao Beach Club where the pump boat going to Blue Waters is waiting. The first trip is as early as 7 in the morning and the last trip is at 5 in the afternoon.
I have been to Blue Waters three times already and every time I visited the place there’s always something new. The last time I was there was August of last year to celebrate my birthday. The place has improved a lot since my last visit. One major improvement was the beach itself. During my second visit, there were still a lot of corals present in the beach which made swimming not so enjoyable because of the corals that you might step on. However this time, the corals seemed to have been taking cared of.
The cottages have been fully constructed too. They now have several cottages for all of their guests who will be staying overnight. The cottages were beautifully made and clean. We rented the Apartel (which by the way was still under construction the last time I was in the place). The room is air-conditioned. It is big and clean. It has a comfort and shower room inside. They have friendly staffs too!
What made me visit the place several times is the fact that it is not too crowded. I am able to make the most of out my stay there because not a lot of people are going around the place. There are areas that I can have a moment of silence or just blankly looking at the sea.
The only down side of Blue Waters is that it is a bit expensive. The food in their restaurant is not too budget-friendly. The guest can bring food but they have to pay corkage (which is also a bit expensive). Other than that I have mentioned, I highly recommend the place for a nice and relaxing vacation!
