My wife and I have just arrived back from a wonderful 11 days at the Blau. Cuba has been on our list for a few years now.
Reading the reviews we arrived with an open mind a little weary after a delayed flight . We were met with a smiling face at reception who welcomed us to the resort and explained all,handing us a room card for 1022.
The room was huge,with a pool / beach view, the beds on other reviews had been mentioned as uncomfortable, but I suffer with a bad back but had 11 Good nights of sleep!
The staff are all first class ,smiling all the time and always awaiting your orders, I expected a laid back caribbean approach but it was very quick service the drinks were all named brands and the cocktails very good.
Our maid was very thorough and her towel artwork was second to none!
The restaurants were good,the main Buffett had plenty of choices for every one and had themed nights which were good. The a la -carte restaurants were also good,long trousers were required for guys , when you were in there the staff gave you very good service .
The beach bar was also good, take your own cups as the plastic mugs issued are very small, our mugs were filled with rum pina colada ( which seemed wrong @ 10am .. But it's a holiday !) also burgers/hot Dogs and toasted sandwiches are available for lunch.
We booked a day trip to Havana with our Virgin rep and it was a Must to see Havana ,the cars,the dancers and the real Cuba, we had a guide called Jose and he was very informative.
Any faults...ok the lifts are a little slow,and one was out of order for a few days , but so what you are on holiday so chilllll!
I would recommend this hotel but this is my opinion and everyone is entitled to theirs.
I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel , they are a credit to their management .Thank You you helped make our trip perfect . We hope to visit Cuba again one day.
