we stayed at the Blau for 2 weeks with our teenage daughters. The first week was great, service at the bar and restaurant was great, the second week, something changed and the service went downhill, there seemed to be a shortage of staff, who seemed stressed and rushed of their feet. The first week we could choose a table of... More

I visited this hotel in July 2015 and I would like to highlight a few important things and to help other travellers to go there prepared. The rooms are basic, but clean. There is a coffee maker in the room and 2 types of tea and one type of coffee. The fridge is stock with 2 beers and 2 colas.... More

we were moved 3 times due to the air/con not working and wrong bed set up (not what we requested), the public areas were stifling with no air-con at all, the bathrooms were basic as were the rooms. the reception staff were sometimes hostile, sometimes ok. We were sick of feeling like we had to tip everyone and anyone. I... More

We conclude our fly-drive trip through Cuba in Blau Varadero. A perfect spot to relax after a very intens road trip. Varadero has the most beautiful beach of Cuba I think. It's a big hotel, but it does never feel crowded. Everything is included. The staff is very professional and friendly. The food is good, not excellent. There's lots to... More

The holiday got off to a particularly 'bumpy' start with the baggage staff at Varadero Airport leaving a luggage container on the plane (yes a whole container!) and telling us that our, and about 30 or 40 other peoples, luggage was 'probably still in Manchester'. Eventually they managed to unload properly and we got our bags...late but at least we... More

We stayed at the Blau between 2nd and 13th July and had a wonderful time. The rooms were large and clean, perhaps a little dated but that is the charm of Cuba. The maids were excellent and we loved their towel ‘swans’ etc. Saff were friendly and very helpful. We’ve been to many Caribbean islands and the food was of... More

Just spent the week at Blau with my granddaughter. The delayed luggage, personal illness, lost phone put a bit of a damper on the short week we were there but no fault of Blau Varadero. They were all wonderful as usual. The food first then staff are what makes it and I hope to see them all again! Best reception... More

We moved on to this hotel from Havana so complete contrast. Initial very impressed staff were welcoming and very helpful and this remained the case throughout the stay except for the serving staff in the restaurant who scowled if they did not get a tip for every serving they made!! The pool area was lovely with lots of activities that... More

We stayed at the Blau March 21-28 for our third straight year. So comfortable here , I believe the service gets better every year. Manager Jose M has the respect of his staff and his work ethic rubs off on every one of his supporting cast. It truly is amazing to see the people who have worked here for years... More
