BelleVue Puntarena Beach Fun 4 Life
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Location: Beachfront, 3 minutes to Varadero, 25 minutes from the airport.
I spent 2 weeks in this hotel on May holidays 2017. Location is great - just in the farest point to have walking tours through Varadero (any further you have to take local Varadero tour bus). Sea is wonderful even though you have to walk to the beach crossing the roads and other hotels. Room is clean and quite, towels changed everyday, All inclusive restaurant was good enough but at the end of May holidays seems already exhausting and far from diversifying the food. The funny thing was that we were always short of Mohito in Cuba!! I can understand shortage of many things but being short of run in Cuba seems absolutely strange. Still holel was nice for holidays. Staff was very helpful always trying to help at their best. If any day coming back to Varadero I will choose it again.
the hotel was nothing to write home about really, but the beach is amazing, like sitting in a bath, and after a few weeks back packing, the food (although not great by European standards) seemed brilliant. swim up bar was nice, as was the beach bar.
First of all if you're used to a Sandals resort, then this resort is NOT for you. I have been to 4.5 star resorts in Cuba, the only thing better at the 4.5 star are the rooms (you're on Vacation, you should only be in the room to sleep) and sometimes food. The Palma Real feels like a second home to me. My second time there, the staff remembered be,welcomed me with open arms, hugs and kisses on the cheek. Yes they do like receiving tips, however a smile goes a long way, trust me! I didn't tip until at the end of the vacation, instead engaged in conversations with the staff and smiled/waved a lot. they reciprocated so my last couple days i started to tip generously. I agree, the food isn't that great, but you can get cheap food off the resort. I travel to this resort solo and never feel out of place. You will find a lot of repeat vacationers here if you have positive energy, friendly demeanor, and like to socialize. I have met many friends from all over there whom i still keep in touch with and even vacation together. If you don't treat the staff with respect, you will receive the same treatment, with or without tips. Go there with with positive vibes and you will have a great trip. I promise!
We booked this hotel knowing we were planning to eat dinner every night in town and not a the hotel. We booked this hotel cheap because it was in Varadero (no need for bus or taxi) instead of spending more, because we wanted to eat out every night.Food: Very repetitive. Not bad, but repetitive. After eating breakfast & lunch at this hotel, I needed to go out for dinner. Impossible to eat 3 times a day - too repetitive, not enough selection. The foos was edible but boring, not much spices, no condiments, nothing o put on toasts in the morning but butter. When we booked for another trip, wqe could not resolve ourselves to go back to this hotel.Drinks: No good drinks - they are all made with powders and slushes and way too much alcool. Everything tastes like chemicals. I ended up buying juice in town and some rum to mix my drinks myself.Room: they are old, need renovations. Was in block 3 - very Noisy, changed to bloc 4, room was a bit bigger. Bed not that conformtable.Beach: Magnificent but you have to cross the street - maybe 7 min walk. I knew that when booking.Location: this is why we booked this hoitel - right next to Beatles bar, Josone park, Calle 62.Conclusion: we are going back to Varadero in October and chose to spend 100$ more for a slightly better hotel where I can eat 3 meals a day and have some drinks that I like. I will not be going back.
It all depends how much you pay. For 2 weeks I paid $1,040 with Air Transat and I would say it was worth it. West Jet was offering same package 2 days later for almost $1600.Everything was average but hotel has amazing location. Calle 62 and Beatles bar are very close. Beach is across the street but it takes 5 minutes to get to the beach. Some of the staff are very nice and some are very hostile. Lots of Cubans at this hotel. Room was clean, always had water pressure, fridge did not work but did not bother to complaint. AC worked fine all the time. Food was OK, just don't expect gourmet food. There could be more chairs at the beach. Some locals were using beach chairs and they were not hotel guests.For this price I would return to this hotel. So i would recommend this resort only if you find a good deal.
