If you are considering booking a holiday at Bluestone but aren’t quite sure, these are a few points to bear in mind.

  • While our lodge wasn’t too far away from anything some of them are, there are also quite a lot of steep hills around the place.
  • There is a free bus running throughout the resort at regular intervals.
  • You can also hire a golf buggy for the duration of your stay or just a day. If you do decide to book one I strongly recommend booking it in advance to avoid disappointment.
  • Think about what you want to do during your stay and book in advance as things do get fully booked – the website is very easy to navigate making booking activities in advance simple.
  • The staff are very friendly and helpful.
  • Bluestone isn’t just for families, it would be perfect for a holiday with friends or a couples holiday too, read how Porcelina enjoyed her stay as part of a couples holiday.
  • The check in process is very easy, we checked in on-line to save time. When we arrived it was a drive through system, we simply gave our booking number at the window and were handed information leaflets, key cards, etc.
  • Check in at 4pm is too late for my liking, this combined with the early check out of 10am means that you pretty much lose two days. ┬áThat being said you can use the facilities at Bluestone before you check in and after you check out.
  • Aside from the noise created by us in the lodge it was very quiet, we didn’t hear any noise from our neighbours.
  • Despite it being fully booked while we were there it was quiet and not too busy anywhere, though phase three is currently being built so this may change.
  • After midnight on check in day the resort is completely car free, this is a great idea as you can let your children run around without worrying.
  • On check in we were handed an activity guide, this is a timetable of all of the activities taking place that week, both paid and free. This is a great idea and came in handy.
  • If you are wanting to go for walks you can pick up maps free of charge from the adventure centre, there are a variety including nature trials and geo caching.
  • The village shop stocks a wide variety of objects and isn’t as expensive as you may think, it is very convenient.
  • There is free wifi in the lodges and throughout the resort.
