I felt the need to write a review because of some negative ones that have sprouted up. I'm very sorry that those individuals didn't have a great experience, but I really have to stick up for this FABULOUS resort! Truth be told, there is no reason why I would NOT recommend the Blau to everyone! I have stayed at the... More

I came to the Blau Varadero for 4 nights, 5 days in March 2011. Price was 1200CAD/person including flights from Ontario and for all inclusive. Traveled with my wife and another couple. 1) Rooms - Clean and well kept. The tile flooring was a bit off-putting as it was always cold but understandable given how much sand the room probably...

Well........ where do i start. My advice to anyone looking to go to Cuba is to go to Varadero just because it is quite central particularly if you are wanting to go to Havana. The Blau has an impressive lobby area and you can't help but stare at everything wide eyed. You have champagne on arrival and a porter take... More

When one reads all the reviews of a given place, it is always wise to take into general context and what the majority of reviewers mention. With this in mind, we made our choice to come to this hotel/area of Cuba for the first time, making it our third visit overall to Cuba. Will break it down to the various... More

Stayed at this hotel after reading reviews. 4* Cuba hotels would only be 3* equivalent elsewhere, mainly because of the food on offer. I have come to this conclusion after staying in Cuba on two separate occasions in two different 4* hotels. The lifts at the Blau are a nightmare, with usually only two of the four lifts working at...
