We travelled from Jan 23 to Jan 30 2014. This was our 3rd visit in three years. So obviously we love this resort. We have been to Cuba 5 times and have stayed at Breezes Bella Costa three years in a row.
The staff remember us as soon as they see us and they are just so friendly towards us and I see towards eachother. Because we were returning guests we were given an amazing room on the top floor at the end of the hall. It had a a huge wrap a round balcony. We had ocean view, from one side we could get a clear view of the Dupont house and at the other end the golf course and the Ocean between Varadero and Cuba. We had a bottle of Rum and a nice card from guest services welcoming us back. They had a returning guests dinner that was amazing.
Pool bar bartenders Alexis, Rene and Sergio go above the call of duty to make you happy. They now call me family. Brought a tear to my eye when I walked up to the bar and they were so excited to see me back again.
Check in all three visits extremely fast and pleasant.
Jimmy's buffet has something to offer for every taste. Breakfast lunch and dinner. Oemlette station is very good. Some mornings I opted for just fried eggs and sometimes the omelette. Their fresh bread is always fresh and so good. Fresh orange juice soooo good. For lunch and dinner the pasta station is also very good. But they have lots more to offer than that. Thursday night is lobster night and it has always been good. I cannot comment on the alacart restaurants because we have never been in three years. I don't like planning ahead what time I want to eat and Jimmy's buffet has so much variety I never got sick of the food.
Each year we have gone out for dinner one night and went to The Casa Del Chef in town. The price has never changed and it is 14 pesos for a Broiled Lobster dinner. Soup, Salad, dinner and dessert. They grilled the lobster right on the patio and it was amazing. If you are not a lobster fan they have a wide selection of dinners.
Breezes Bella Costa also has scooters to rent right in the parking lot, if you want to explore on your own. Very resonable.
There are always taxis and horse and buggy's during the day.
For the first time this year we were introduced to the Beatles Club, all I can say is WOW!!!!!!! If you like Rock N Roll, this is a must. They did Led Zepplin, ACDC, Rolling Stones, Red hot Chillie Peppers and on and on. And they did all the songs amazingly. Beers were 2 pesos and liquior 3 pesos. No cover. The setting is outside on a patio. Sound system is awesome. Get there by 9:00 to 9:15 to get in otherwise you stand on the street.
If you have never been to Cuba keep an open mind. You will not eat the food you are accustomed too. If you like spicey bring some hot sauce. If you only like Heinz ketchup bring it. They try very hard to please us and they are amazing friendly people if you treat them like they are. When I get home I always stop at my local pub and get a steak because I miss my beef.
I also make sure I drink lots of water in between beverages during the day and I bring a can of crystal gatorade to keep hydrated.
Treat these people like family and that is what you will get in return plus some.
I will be going back to this resort for the 4th time next year.
