This was my first visit to Cuba. We absolutely loved the Blau. The hotel is beautiful, the food is great, and the service is outstanding. The beach couldn't be prettier... and you will be there because the pool is freezing! We had such a great experience that we are coming back in January again. The top notch service is the... More

Stayed for 10 days during august. A special thanks to GM Jose Maria for keeping this place top notch. Supper with GM, eating lobster as a returning guest was a great idea. He knows how to treat his customers and staff well. Beach,Food, Mojitos fantastic. Rooms are very clean, you can walk bare foot with no fear. Thanks to Eduardo,Arianna,Dariel,... More

The staff are helpful and friendly, the food is plentiful, and there was no problem getting a lounger during August. The hotel was let down by dreadfully slow and hot lifts (after a long wait, people seemed to really struggle with the heat inside the lifts), and also by poor / not working air con in the public areas. There... More

Looks like a concrete block as you drive up to it. Nice reception area. Rooms adequate, could do with ventilation in toilet though. Maid leaves notes (expect to leave a tip) rooms kept clean, balcony never cleaned. Water and pop provided daily in mini fridge. Rooms can be a bit noisy depending on what's on in bar as all rooms...

Spent a week here in August and had a fantastic time. Sun beds were available around the pool all day so no need to get up early. Food was really varied and something was available 24/7 so you could never go hungry. Went to the Mexican and International restaurants which were both very nice. We also had an invite to... More

I have been to the Blau a couple of times now, the staff are great the location is perfect. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Varadero! There is a lot of choice in the way of food and drinks, you'll always find something. especially when there is food pretty much available all the time! The beach is incredible, would highly recommend.

Amazing weather, amazing staff, amazing food, amazing drinks, amazing beach. Best Xmas and new year I've had in years. There was always something to do for everyone. You have to stay here! We will be back in summer when the price is a bit cheaper as it was very expensive at Christmas
