We stayed in Blau Varadero for a week in May 2007. This was my first time to the caribbean and it didn't disappoint. The Hotel was excellent, very clean and the choice of food was fantastic. Lunch was the best meal of the day as the selection was brilliant with a bbq every day. At night we would go to... More

We are seasoned travellers and have been doing the AI resorts for more than 10 years. The Blau was definitely one of our best experiences for the price! Rooms and facilities are extremely clean. Service staff right from the maids to the restaurant/bar staff are top notch! A little tip goes a long way and is greatly appreciated. We always... More

The hotel was very clean, all the bathrooms from the main area to the pool area was the same, clean and well looked after. Our room was well maintained, clean towels and sheets every day. The service as good at the restaurant, the staff very friendly. We found the food enjoyable, lots to choose from. We did a day tour... More

We stayed at Blau for 7 nights and enjoy every moment of it. The hotel is clean and well maintained, only one pool but it's never crowed. They have two nice tennis courts and we played there everyday for about an hour. You have to book it ahead and it got quite busy between 4pm to 7pm. I have to... More

Go without any doubt. The Blau is a great hotel, food is fine, cocktails are great, and people are so friendly. The beach is very clean and beautiful. It's a very zen hotel. I loved the windsurfing and the beach volley! Forget all the negative reviews! i will return to the blau in a second. Just bring a lot of... More

Stayed nine nights at the Blau. The Blau is the tallest building and not the most beautiful one from outside. Inside, the lobby looks impressive with the hanging plants and panoramic lifts. Check-in was quick and efficient and very friendly. All was well explained. The luggage was taken to our room (818) which had a great view over the ocean.... More

We were very careful in chosing our hotel on our first visit to the Caribbean. One or two of the negative reviews on the trip advisor site almost put us off the Blau but in the end the more positive comments prevailed. We can't express just how delighted we were that we made the choice we did as we had... More

My husband and I recently returned from our trip to Varadero and Havana, Mar 11 to Mar 18. We booked our trip through Sears Travel, the tour provider was Nolitours and we flew via Air Transat. Sears Travel and Air Transat are great companies to deal with both in service and quality. Sorry, can't say the same about Nolitours -... More

We were first time visitors to the Blau Varadero resort and to Varadero itself. When we checked in we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a poolside view although we would have been content on the quieter side of the resort which offers somewhat of an ocean view as well. There was little wait for check in. Our room... More
