We stayed at the Iberostar Laguna Azul from April 11th to April 14th 2014. The rooms are good but old fashioned and in our's the TV was not functioning correctly. Fridge only contained 2 cans of each drink (4 beers, 2 cola, 2 orange and 2 lemon sodas), I asked to our maid to change the drinks for water bottles... More

We've just came back from this trip and overall we've had a good vacation. This property is not very large and that makes it nice as getting everywhere it doesn't take too long. The overall property looks fair (keep in mind that you are in Cuba), the food is very good for Cuba, and the beach is great. The staff... More

We first off had a great holiday here in the Azul, however there were a few small points that made us feel that it wasn't quite up to a five star standard. 1) Air conditioning in our room was intermittently working, and when it did work, it wasn't very good. It lead to us calling maintenance who consequently fixed the... More

This was one of 5 hotels we stayed in in Cuba and I can only describe it as "Marmite" - you will either love it or hate it. It is a huge hotel, over 800 rooms so it is very busy. Our room was a good size, a big grubby round the edges and noisy. We had arrived at the... More

I was at this resort from April 12-19 2014. It was my third stay at IBEROSTAR Laguna Azul in 2 years, and I plan on going back very soon!! If you are going to be picky then go pay 3-4 times as much and look at other destinations. This is Cuba, and a lot of reviewers need to relax! I... More

I visited Cuba more than 15 times. I liked this resort because of service and the quality of the food at the a la carte restaurants. Now bear in mind Cuba is Cuba. The 5 stars is night like a Mexico 5 stars. We all know the food in Cuba is not amazing. But for what it is at this... More

My husband and I have travelled to the Caribbean many times. We've been to Mexio-Puerto Vallarta and Riveira Maya; Dominican Republic-Punta Cana;Cuba-Holguin, Cayo Coco, and Varadero. This was our 9th time to Cuba and 7th time to Iberostar Laguna Azul in Varadero. This hotel offers great service, and the people who work there are exceptional!! Starting from reception. We have...

This was my 4th time to this resort, it was nice how the staff remembered you and welcome you back. Our room over looked the main pool, was spacious, clean and well kept. The main buffet has improved from last year with lots of variety, in the morning you could have omelettes made for you, at dinner they would grill... More

The resort was absolutely beautiful, clean and well attended to. The staff were very entertaining. Our group joined some of the staff and a few locals for a game of softball, and water polo. Trying to get water was where the only major issue came. 1 bottle every two days, and a royal pain to get otherwise. The a la... More
