Blau Colonial Question Again
Save

Hi All

Can anyone confirm or deny the rumor from some posts that there is a ordor that comes from the canal. Also that there is horse droppings(political correct) all over the road in front of the ground floor rooms. Can you request specific rooms and floors fully understanding that they don't know what their vacancy rate would be this far in advance(March/07). Any help would be greatful.

Cheers

Hola bererman

You off soon???

The horse droppings are probably from the horse carts.

The odour whch people think comes from the canal is (if sulfur) is from the power plant near Cardenas ... depending on which way the wind blows you may get this aroma once in a while.

The odour usually never makes it to the Varadero area but the odd time it does and people freak. The odd time there is the odour of sewage at some resorts ... this generally happens when is is very hot and/or very busy. (capacity issues)

Hope that helps

Have been there several times. As far as getting a certain room good luck but no harm in requesting. The resort itself is very clean I have never smelled any type of oder. The only thing is a couple with me had ants in their room, complained room was sprayed and everything was great.

Thanks Mardi. I've been on here for a couple of years now and I appreciate all your input. We hope to go Mar25 - Apr 8/07. My better half is reading to many reviews and is concerned about smell , where there rooms are located, etc. Me I'm looking for a good bar, relatively decent food, and nice beach. Been to Varadero twice, Holguin once so were tryin something new. Hope it works.

Cheers
