We stayed at the Blau for two weeks in September '11 and two weeks in June '12. We had a great during both trips. We are extremely satisfied with everything.

A group of 6 of us (middle-aged women who are young at heart!) decided last minute to get away and we went to the Blau in Varadero at the end of May. It's an All Inclusive located on the beach. We had a terrific time. The staff were very accommodating (do bring money to tip with) and every day there...

This is a good hotel but suffers from two significant problems of which the most important is regards to food hygiene: 1. Birds peck away at the buffet food at lunch time everyday and staff are not bothered at all. There are birds flying in the main indoor restaurant and there are bird droppings on the floor which was not...

This review is long overdue for several reasons. But our stay at the Blau was wonderful. The staff was extremely friendly and attentiive. It is Cuba, so the food was good but not great, and the liquor selection is limited but adequate. But the location was great, and so far it is the best beach we have gone to as...

We spent Christmas 201 and Janury 2012 in the Blau Varadero. On arrival we were to receive a complimentary drink which nobody mentioned to us, our room was not ready when we got there which was the afternoon. The first evening we were really shocked by the noise we could hear in our room, we were on the 7th floor...

Just come back from a 2 week stay ending 8 June. Although I've not been to Cuba before we are well travelled and I was brought up in Africa, so am used to different conditions, heat, variable food quality and different standards - so this review takes into account that Cuba is a very poor country and we went with...

My first night at the Blau was nightmarish, everything every bad review mentioned occurred to me. We arrived late so the dinner buffet was pretty terrible and we practically had zero service. When I walked into my room (939) the first thing I noticed that the washroom floor had weird chunky stains, it looked like someone spilled juice and never...
