Our Opinion

A very pleasant resort in Varadero. The Blau Marina Resort is a great resort that offer luxurious amenities. Tons of food choices. The buffet items are probably the freshest of the lot. There are also plenty of a la carte restaurants as well. OK drink choices. The bars very rarely keep top-shelf items, so the drinks taste rather watered down. Great rooms that are well-maintained and cleaned regularly. The service from the team can vary. However, the majority of staff members are pleasant and attentive. There are plenty of activities offered, so you'll never have a shortage of things to do. Amazing beach location with plenty of loungers. One of the better choices to stay in Varadero.

The Blau Marina is located on a beautiful two-kilometre-long stretch of white-sand beach and turquoise waters; nature lovers will enjoy strolling the beautiful gardens throughout the hotel's spacious grounds. Located across from Marina Gaviota, the most important Sea Point in Cuba and minutes from the Punta de Hicacos Ecology Park.

Location: Directly on the beach, 35 min from the Varadero airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

Beautiful spot, but not as advertised

The hotel was beautiful, we had a lovely partial ocean front view. The room was advertised as a junior suite that sleeps 3-4 people, and that it did not. It was just a regular sized room with a king bed and small sofa. Our 4 year old slept on the sofa but a full grown person could not. The only way the room would sleep 3-4 people is if they all slept in one bed for which we only had two pillows, so I guess we were supposed to share...and I am not sure how they think the room is a suite. Anyways, that aside the room was nice, it was quite clean and we had a big balcony. The food was much better than I was expecting, the best parts of the buffet were where you Could order things fresh (pasta bar, egg station, meat grill etc). The only thing we didn't like about the food service was the hours, the resort is advertised as being family friendly but meal service only starts at 7:30am, 12:30pm and 6:30pm, and there are no other options outside of those hours. The resort advertised 24 hr snacks but that is a fallacy. They really only have two a la carte restaurants as the seafood one isn't open and the Cuban one is only open on Saturdays.The drinks were quite good. Especially at the lobby bar (in fact unless getting beer don't go anywhere else). They had amazing cappuccino's, Spanish coffee, piña collatas were heaven, and all sorts of other delicious drinks.The beach was beautiful, they had beachfront yoga and dance lessons, and bingo at the pool...lots of fun activities to do! The pools are not heated and surprisingly were quite cold when we were there, we had some cooler days 25C so I didn't go Swimming a lot. The staff were great, very friendly. We were there with our two little kids and they were very helpful with them.

A perfect vacation

My fiancé and I just returned from Blau Marina Varadero. We loved this resort. It was by far the nicest beach I have ever seen. Our cleaning lady made awesome creations with the towels in our room, along with kind hand written notes daily. The food was good -we really enjoyed the Spanish restaurant and the tropical pizzas at the light house. We went on the catamaran as well as the jeep tour and we had a blast. The resort was in walking distance from a Marina with cute stores and coffee shops. We had fun doing dancing lessons, water volleyball, and beach volleyball with the "Animation" crew, and the nightly entertainment shows were far above my expectations. Love the Pina Coladas we enjoyed at the 24 hours lobby bar. Wish the pool bars had later hours too :). Thank you Blau Maria for the amazing experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Blau Marina Resort

My 2 friends and myself, retired ladies, have recently returned from an enjoyable trip to Cuba. None of us had expectations about this particular resort, and we were pleasantly surprised. Our room, on the ground floor facing the pool area, accommodated the 3 of us, two double beds and one cot, with ample space. It was quite clean and when our regular maid, Genia was taking care of it, there were clean towels, water, soda and beer provided daily. The buffet provided a variety of tasty choices for every meal, so were never hungry and were well taken of by our friendly servers, Wendy & Carlos. We did do 2 of the 3 A La Carte restaurants and the BBQ, but would only recommend the Italian one. The wine, beer and cocktails were complaints here!!The long private beach right at the end of Veradero was awesome.... clean, well stocked with chairs and huts, with a beach bar close by, and numerous activities- volleyball , dancing, exercises, to participate in or just to entertain. Thanks to Jose we always had 3 chairs and a hut waiting for us. The resort itself is quite extensive, so we did alot of walking, but golf carts were readily available to pick you up if needed. This resort is very kid-friendly with a kiddy pool, a play area, a huge bouncy castle and evening activities for them. After dinner,we enjoyed many of the nightly shows. The talent is amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and actually made our trip. Nancy especially, a customer service rep in the main lobby, went out of her way to provide advice on a variety of services at the resort. All in all, we had a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to return to the Blau Marina resort.

Blau Marina was everything I'd hoped for!

This resort lived up to all my expectations. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating, the food was tasty and varied, the beach and pools were well kept and inviting, the evening shows were entertaining and the performers were extremely talented. On the days when our regular housekeeper was working, the room was cleaned to perfection. It was a little less than desirable when she was off and another worker had to pick up the slack. The resort is huge so there's a lot of walking but there is plenty to see and experience so it was well worth it. There are 24 hour golf cart/mini buses to take you anywhere you want to go on the resort and the Blau Customer Service reps are always on hand to get you what you need or to give you advice.This resort is very family friendly. There are kid's pools, water slide, playground and a very large bouncy castle. Before the evening show in the the theater, they run an evening program for the kids where they get them up on stage dancing and singing. The kids loved it!I'm retired but my friends and I loved every minute and we would go back in a heartbeat.
