Great stay at the Blau Varadero

Having visited Cuba 4 times, I have to say that this hotel comes highly recommended. Value for money without any doubts! Room was very clean and the maid service was excellent! Clean towels everyday presented in all shapes and designs and room left very tidy! Food choice in the buffet is as you would expect for All Inclusive and by Cuba standards the choice was excellent. When you compare it to the choice of food the locals have then you would be amazed. If you cant find something you like then Cuba is not for you! The 2 onsite Restaurants were probably the best I have eaten in at an all Inclusive and been to several other Caribbean Islands, especially the International! WOW the steak yum yum. Well done to all the chefs for the food preparation. Pool huge and very clean and well the beach is to die for! Drinks on tap constantly, what more could you ask for. Evening entertainment was enjoyable, especially for our 'almost' 6 year old that wanted to watch every show! He loved them, so what do I care! There is so much talent in Cuba, well done to both the performers and animation team. The staff throughout the hotel from Reception to the Pool BBQ chef, were very friendly, but learn a few Spanish words for goodness sake and they will really appreciate it. The lifts might take a little time, during peak times, but what's the rush. You are either heading to the beach or the bar, so chill. The only disappointment I really felt was an incident at the Pool Bar. One of the waiters dropped a glass and the staff were very slow to react, meaning people were at risk of stepping on it from the pool and I myself had to keep warning people. The waiter disappeared and 5 mins later a lady arrived with a brush. There was a lack of Health & Safety on this matter, so probably a little training wouldn't go amiss. The hotel has a real nice feel factor, especially in Bar area in the hotel and the lobby was always spotless. All on all though, we had an amazing time and believe the standard for what we paid was fab! Get out of the hotel though and visit Havana. See the rea Cuba and experience the Latin Vibe and Romance of a beautiful capital, even whilst appreciating some of the poverty and how the Cubans live! Then you really will appreciate the staff & service at the hotel!!

Clean, friendly hotel, excellent pool and beach facilities

Could not fault the staff- waiting staff, housekeeping- extremely effecient and friendly. Hotel very clean, lovely bit well kept pool. Nice walkway to the beach, very close and stunning beach- some people seem to complain about distance,-very unnecessary maximum 200m walk along lovely wooden walkway- beach side bar well stocked and 24 hr snacks available. Food is varied, excellent buffets available. Only falut would be the watersports staff on the ebach- very unhelpful- need to be reviewed by the hotel and also the professional dance teachers for the lessons- the male was bordering on rude, unhelpful and inpatient, the other instructor was lovely.

Beautiful beach location and friendly staff

Nice big clean rooms, beautiful beach and pool area. Staff are all very friendly and put on lots on activities. Food is decent - much more choice than elsewhere in Cuba. A little out of the way of Veradero town but you can take a taxi if you wish easily enough. I would say this is a family friendly - relaxing complex, but not too quiet if that's what you want. Beach bar doubles as the late night 24 hour bar. About 2.5 - 3 hours from Havana.
