We just got back from the Blau Marina and we had an amazing week and I would go back in a seconde. We got there the 31 at night. We booked the 30th at 11:00 at night. So very last minute. When we got there the receptionist was very nice and we got our room right away.
The room are a little bit old and not brand new but a really good size. I usually don't really care about the room since you pretty only go for sleeping and have a shower. We had a beautiful view from our balconie. The only thing I would suggest it to not leave any food out. we traveled with my son and he left a piece of cookie, when we got back a few ants were snacking ! We did'nt care much again, our balcony was always open...this stuff can happen. The pool, the beach the site were clean and amazing.
The food was actually pretty good. I'm very picky for food. Last time I was in Cuba in a different resort I did'nt eat at all. I ate everything from the grill. I probably have one of the best fish in my life over there. The pasta were very good. We did only two A la carte and they were Okay, but I prefer by far the buffet. My son (2 year old) had the milk and all kinna of food and was loving it and had no problem at all. The Irish coffee from the Lobby was one of the best I ever had. You must try !!!!
THE STAFF !!!! I can't not even explain you how they made our trip more wonderfull. Everyone are so nice ! Not one time they were rude with us. They were happy, always ready to help and great with my son. Cuban ppl just LOVE kid. The kid club was perfect. The poeple who work there are just amazing. I felt save to leave my son for an hour or two in the afternoon, so me and my husband can have a little break at the pool. The kid house is located juste beside the main pool, you can see it from the pool...i found this really convinience. Libertad, Xana and Dana (not sure about the sleeling)are the one took care of my son. The were so nice. It's an excellent place for family vacation. I would go back in the futur with my son.
Important to mention, we booked this trip really last minute, so we did'nt have many option. Mexico was way too expensif for us, so we were left with DR and Cuba. I was in Cuba two years ago and I told myself I would never go back cause the food was terrible. By husband convience to give one more try ! And I'm glad I did it cause we had a fabulous vacation. This resort made me change my mind...
