The RV tiki locations were well designed, provisioned and managed. Located close short to Key West and a Publics. Maintenance is constant, keeping everything immaculate, garbage pick-up daily and with an active recycling program - yay!! Staff were super kind and helpful.
Our RV station had its own fishing/swimming dock, room for a Toyota Highlander, kayaks and 5-bicycles. There were 2-picnic tables, an outdoor fridge freezer and a sideboard.

We are day 2, of a 5-day stay. Leaving here will be hard, but I know we’ll return.

We stayed for 8 nights and looking online I honestly was under the impression everyone had access to the water to swim. I had no idea you had to have a bay side spot to get into the water just to float. (Bay side was not available when we booked)We booked in a nice spot and for not being on the bay side it was nice outdoor spot. The hut was very nice. Unfortunately the TV was hit with lightning and had some lines in it. Our cable never worked inside our RV the entire time we were there. It tried to pick up 3 channels but never did. We wanted to change our spot to bay side to the end of our stay to let our kids to enjoy the bay but because of owner spots I wasn’t able to change spots. Another issue is no A/C in the bathrooms. The pool was...nice.

I know I seemed to talk about the negatives however I titled it almost paradise because the landscape is gorgeous! The spots are very clean and very nice. The staff takes pride in making sure everyone enters their spot looking great. The place is gated which is a huge plus! The price was very fair. I loved the very private large spots.

If we had A/C in bathrooms, stayed bayside, and had cable in RV it would have been perfect!

Dear Dustin M,

Thank you for your 4-star review! We're sorry that you had some issues with the TV on your site. From what I understand there were issues with Comcast (our local provider) throughout the Keys due to inclement weather last week. In addition, our high-definition cable is digital not analog and some TV's are not able to receive the signal.

Because all of our sites are privately owned, once a reservation is made and a deposit is received, the reservation is confirmed and refunds are not allowed, unless there are extenuating unforeseen circumstances. Changing sites is allowed after you have arrived (if another site is available), but the commitment remains on the initial site that was confirmed. Therefore, we encourage our guests to review all of our rental sites on our website before making that reservation and make sure that it meets your needs and expectations. Always feel free to call our Concierge desk if you have any questions about a particular site.

In addition, our governing documents require that all RV's be self-contained with their own bathroom facilities. Therefore, our public restrooms/showers are intended for pool use only and are not air-conditioned.

We hope that you will give us another try and we will look forward to your return visit.

Loved this park. Staff friendly, helpful and accomadating. Our site was awesome. Right on the bay. Quiet at night, very relaxing. I wish there was more that went on at the park. There are ALOT of full timers, (they own their sites, like condos) and they kinda keep to themselves. I think I was the only one who bar b qed ...Never saw a bunch of people gathered anywhere in a social setting. It was more like your neighborhood..We liked it, but I don't have any need to go back.

Dear greaseman93,

Thank you for your great review! We're very happy that you enjoyed your time at our Resort and we hope you change your mind and visit us again! Our staff works hard to try to make your vacation a pleasant and relaxing experience. This time of year most of our owners are not in the Resort and our sites are mainly occupied by other guests. The rain this past weekend probably quieted the Resort down, but we always say, "it doesn't rain in the bars" and there is always a lot to do in Key West. We appreciate your patronage and we wish you safe travels.

My wife and I just spent 10 nights at Blue Water Key on lot 65. Lot 65 has a great Tiki and private dock. The weather was not great, but the time was so relaxing. The pool is small but nice. The lots are all privately owned and decorated individually. Super well maintained with a nice dog park and a separate people park. Boat launch is available. Water is shallow, snorkeling right off the dock. Laundry facility available. Showers are basically for pool use and RV/Campers are expected to be self contained. We had an incredible time and are looking forward to returning!

Room Tip: Look at all the sites available on their website and pick what you need and want.

Very overpriced park with horrible customer service. The park is located about 15 minutes from Key West where the sites are each privately owned. Each site has a gravel parking pad, which is very odd given the price, concrete or pavers for the rest of the site and a small tiki hut. The amenities at each hut depends on what the owners have installed. Our tiki had a TV, couch, chairs and bar area. Most sites back up to either the bay side or the canal side. Those sites offer direct access to the water, but not much in the way of views. The park has a common grass area that is half human park and half dog park. They also have a common area along the canal side where about half of the sites back up to the common area instead of the canal. The pool is nice, but the showers and bathrooms are what you would expect at a 20 year old public beach bathroom. The wifi worked decent during our stay. We had a bad experience with the staff while checking in and if you make the mistake of staying here, be sure to be here before 5pm for check in. We have stayed in several RV parks where the sites are privately owned and this park was by far the most expensive and offered the least. I would recommend trying the other park options in the area. See all of our pics and our review at our blog at thegilliamsisland.

Room Tip: None of the views are worth the cost. Unless you bring a boat, stay in the cheapest site you can reserve.

Dear Gary G,

Thank you for your review. We're sorry that you feel you had a bad experience with our customer service, but we wish you would have elaborated more specifically as to your personal issue. Our Concierge Director is always available for customer comments to help us improve on customer service.

Our staff takes pride in trying to greet our guests in a friendly and welcoming manner while going through the registration process. In addition, our maintenance staff will always assist you in parking your rig on your site, getting you set up and orienting you to the amenities provided on that site.

It is important to note that our Resort is located in a flood plain and our gravel parking pads are required as "swales" by Monroe County to prevent water run-off onto other sites. You will also find that our tiki huts vary from small to very large. Each site is privately owned and the amenities provided vary, but our rates are structured according to the tiered level of amenities, such as "Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum Plus. All of this information is located on our website.

During the summer season we discount our winter rates up to 20% on the Bayfront lots and 40% on our Tropical lots. Because our Covenants require that each RV unit is completely self- contained with your own personal bathroom facilities, we only provide bathroom/shower facilities for pool use. We do not allow tents, pop-ups or camper shells. Our public restrooms and showers are NOT intended for daily personal hygiene use.

We encourage our guests to arrive before 5pm so that our on-site resident Management team can have their personal time after business hours. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our staff does understand that there are special exceptions and they do accommodate late arrivals, if necessary. Due to the risk of damage to your property and ours, we do NOT park our guests after dark.

Bluewater Key®️ is a 5-star rated RV Resort and our owners and staff make every effort to make sure that your vacation time spent with us is a pleasant and memorable experience. We look forward to our guests returning every year.
