I went to this resort April 2-April 9, 2012 with my husbands parents it wouldn't let me pick a date later than August 2013. I had been to Cuba before and stayed at the Barceló and I have to say I liked this resort better. This trip was about relaxing and this resort was great for that. We only left... More

My wife and myself stayed at the Blau Varadero, set on a stunning peninsula at the edge of a pristine white-sand beach amid tropical gardens, in Cuba for 9 nights, from 20th May 14, after leaving Havana. It took 2½ hours by car to get there but it's an interesting journey. The reception is air conditioned which was a great... More

15th visit to the Blau Varadero July 8-15th. Since it is school holidays my wife was able to also do the trip. It was a very nice week. Weather was HOT. Thunderstorms were usually overnight, once before lunch and a couple of early evening ones. The lightning was generally on the horizon and the rain missed the resort. The resort... More

We visited the Blau Varadero for two weeks of rest and relaxation (June 27th – July 11th), and that was exactly what we got. Check-in was pretty chaotic when we arrived as another bus had preceded ours, but within 20 minutes we were checked-in and on our way to our 12th floor room with its beautiful view of the pool...

Hotel infrastructure is great, service is excellent, music and spectacles adequate, food superb. Couple of points to fix: lifts need a mean of cooling them and TV sets are old. Hotel managment needs to address the problem of seats at the beach. Passengers tip the hotel beach personnel, to reserve chairs for them, and no matter how early you get... More

Havana is a bustling city so after a few days exploring it we were really looking forward to some relaxing time by the beach in Varadero. Blau offered perfect value for money. The hotel's design and interior looked a bit dated but the room was spacious, clean with AC and a nice balcony. Staff were really friendly and polite at... More
