Upgraded to sea view room which was spacious and clean. Shower was excellent! Staff friendly and helpful. Food ok for AI (breakfast was good as was snack bar by pool). Have to be up early to get a space on the beach (from 7am)! We really didn't do anything but relax as only had 4 nights - it was very... More

We spent three days in this all inclusive hotel on the beach at the end of our tour. It has everything that you would expect of this type of hotel - lots of food, lots of drinks, good swimming pools and a beach side location. Some people just stayed at the hotel for their whole holiday - this is a... More

It was our first family holiday to Cuba and definitely won't be the last! We had an amazing stay at the Blau. The food was excellent, plenty to choose from and quite tasty. All the staff were so lovely, always smiling and willing to help. The beach and sea are just beautiful! The only thing that we did get a... More

We entered the Blau to a warm and friendly welcome at reception. Our safe wouldn't lock and a maintenance man was at our door within minutes to fix it. This was at ten pm. We stayed in room 1233 the week of April 11th to 18th. It was quiet and we weren't disturbed by any noise. Even though the hotel... More

Just returned from another 2 weeks of bliss at the Blau Varadero Hotel. We were a group of 4 that were there for our 6th trip and were not disappointed. I have noticed some improvements every year since Jose the manager took over but there are still some areas that could use some attention. We are early riser and are... More

I won't go over the things that have been thoroughly discussed by other travellers... found most of the reviews to hold true having been at the resort 2 weeks early April. These are my observations: PROS: 1. the staff. Especially the buffet table servers - these wonderful people make you feel sincerely appreciated and liked. Wish I could remember everyone's... More

The Blau Varadero stands out boldly on the varadero skyline,unlike the other properties that seem to nestle into there surroundings. However it is only when you step inside the front door of this hotel that you realise the beauty of it. It is like a different world, there are trees, vines, and plants that all enhance the calm and relaxing... More

As our first time going to Varadero I was quite happy with the reviews I had seen here hence why we chose this hotel. Our expectations were not only met, but definitely got surpassed! After arriving on a quite late transfer from Havana (awful journey, but I will get into that at some other point) we got there just in... More

After the hustle and bustle of Havana we were looking for a place to relax.This hotel did not disappoint .The staff were great -always smiling ,attentive yet not pushy . The general atmosphere was so relaxing . The fact that you can eat and drink for 24hrs all inclusive worried me beforehand as some people can tend to overindulge but... More
