From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. We were received in a professional manner and taken to our rooms. The room was clean and well equipped. Bathrooms were clean. We felt comfortable. The parking facilities were great and privacy was excellent. The kitchen staff were very accommodating with our meal requests and the meals were excellent. I will never stay elsewhere whenever I am in PE. Great place to stay.

Christina was an excellent host. She made sure we had everything we needed, and her friendliness was refreshing. The accommodation itself was very comfortable, large and clean. The patio with sea views afforded us hours of pleasure and a braai as well!

I found this guesthouse by luck after a terrible experience at a Guesthouse in Seaview Port Elizabeth. I called late on a Thursday Evening around 11pm and was happy I did. The phone was answered by a friendly gentleman by the name of Harry who was the owner. I explained my situation and he was more than happy to help me. Harry explained the various rooms that he had available, there were not too many to choose from as it was for a Friday evening and he stated they were pretty full. I chose one that was not yet on the website and luckily for me it was not on the site so it had not been booked. Harry stated if it was not so late, he would of said we should come right now so we could have a good night’s rest as I explained my current situation to him. I stated I would look at my various options when I arrived in the morning and choose from what was available and suited my needs. I paid a deposit via his website straight away.

When I arrived at 9am sharp Friday Morning as per our telephone conversation that was the time we agreed to meet. The outer building was stunning and overlooking the ocean. I pressed the gate bell and was let in. I went to the upper office and breakfast was still being served, it looked exceptionally yummy. I was greeted by Nardia who was ever so helpful right from the start. She was expecting me and knew my situation, I was going to look at one or two rooms and make my decision. I looked at the one seaview room, wow what a seaview but it had a double bed only and we needed 2 single beds for mum and me.

She then showed me the room Harry had originally stated I should choose The Joycelyn Family Unit. It was stunning and newly renovated, it was tiled, cool and clean. We had our own balcony and were able to block off the stairs for the dogs to run around and not worry of them getting out. I had a look around to be safe, I loved it, chose that room and went back to the office with Nardia and paid the remaining amount owed. Returned to the car to mum and the woofiies and stated I was happy and we had a clean, spacious comfy place to rest this evening, we drove to the back of the property and unpacked had a cup of coffee and went out for the day to Port Elizabeth which was roughly 10-15km away. The room was spacious and comfortable, but most of all very clean and fresh.

In the morning we went to breakfast and were greeted by Tammy the friendly staff member who took our hot breakfast order. We helped ourselves to some freshly baked goods, cold meats, cheese and fruit salads, cereals all the normal goodies for a cold breakfast. After breakfast we packed up and thanked everyone for their kindness and hospitality. Harry and his staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful for the duration of our stay. I would recommend Bluewater Beachfront Guest House as a choice of stay when in the area.

we booked this guesthouse via the home page. It is advertised with "luxury 4 stars accommodation" ... I wonder how such a guesthouse can have 4 stars.
We booked in advance the 2bedrooms flat.
The flat is old and needs attention. The kitchen is terrible. In the cupboards you can find "humidity mushrooms".
The shower does not work properly. Everything is just "fixed" and nothing seems to be renewed.
The dogs are barking at night resp. in the early morning. The beach area is nice but I would not recommend this guest house.

We spent two nights at this guesthouse but did not feel like guests, more like an inconvenience.
We were asked to pay in advance before being shown the room, which was very old and dated. When we took our shoes off we found a large wet patch on the carpet by the bathroom. We were told the children that were in the room before us must have flooded the bath, but nobody did anything about it. We put a bath rug over it!
The shower did not work so we had to take baths instead.
Both mornings the owners dog was barking consistently from 5am onwards and growled at us when we went downstairs.
The area and beach was very nice but I would not recommend this accomodation.

The people at the guest house are lovely however the bathroom was dirty and the shower was just not a good sight.The fake flowers in the room don't look all that lovely.Having a kettle inside a wooden cupboard is also not a great idea with time the wood will spoil.

Great location opposite the dunes in Bluewater Bay. My room was probably not the best on the property because there was no view apart from the bathroom of another unit. Room basic, but all amenities well maintained and functional. WIFI free, but not always accessible on second floor. Hot breakfast prepared fresh and very good. Dinner on the premises was extremely tasty, with even pudding thrown in.
