Blau Privilege Cayo Libertad
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
5 star location, lovely large rooms, large bathrooms with big baths and showers over baths no problems with hot water or cold, all staff very friendly although not all speak English so time to brush on your Spanish. The grounds are very well kept, although no security within the grounds so other hotel guests sometimes wonder around, everything but the food is top star, which isn't up to the same standard, if they pull get that upgraded it would be prefect. Regrettably only 3 star local rating, as rarely got hot food, funny enough if the manger came up to check, but it is Cuba.
Food a disgrace, always coming out cold and the same dross every day. Saw the chef with his head in a bin fishing something out of it. The stench each morning from the back of the kitchen area was gut wrenching. My wife and I had really terrible tummy upsets for the whole 2 weeks which ruined our holiday. We were not the only one's and my wife and others ended up in the medical centre. Staff never washed their hands after changing bins and most of them by the pool stood up chatting half of the day. The hotel looks nice but small mercies. Havana is ok but very dirty with all open bins. Needed coats to sit in the hotel retaurant as it was that cold with aircon at full blast. Half the time you would order a drink and it would never arrive, plus you ask for chips instead of soggy veg and you would get soggy cold veg. Shall not be returning to Cuba for sure as was the worst vacation ever.
Beautiful location on a tiny island at the end of the Varadero peninsula. The hotel is very peaceful with a quiet pool and it's own beach. The rooms are spacious with huge balconies or patios. My one and only criticism would be the fact that the same menu is presented each day and doesn't seem to change but the food is delicious and the chef will cook your choice on request. Wonderful, friendly staff.
Arriving at this hotel in the evening can be a slight shock as it is quiet dark and not many lights. But this is an Adults only. The rooms are a good walk from the reception area and the Cigar Bar. The Cigar Bar is very pleasant and open till 1.am. My room was excellent only in blocks of four. The room was Large! with separate bathroom and toilet and another room for clothes and the safe. The Balcony again was very large. There is a fridge that has Beer Coke and water. Also one has a bottle of Rum and there Champagne. All part of your package. Always drink the bottled Water even when clean your teeth. The restaurant breakfast, lunch and dinner is all Waiter/Waitress Service. Whilst in the sister hotel it is buffet. Yes and you can use. There are themed restaurants in the sister hotel which you can book at reception.(Italian, Spanish, Sea food and Barbecue.) Not always open at the same time. The grounds are excellent and one can walk for miles along the beach or to a road to nowhere! Also one can walk to the Marina where there are shops and restaurants. If you want more night life or things to do during your stay your are able to use the sister hotels facilities. Which most did especially in the evening. The sister Hotel Guest can not use your hotel.Golf buggies are provided, but is a pleasant walk. If you want to go further there are are open top bus that run up and down the Peninsula , which you are able to hop on and off at various points eventually into Varadero. This cost 5.Pesos all day and stops at 8.pm. Biggest let down is the WI-FI but think it is all of Cuba. One has to get a Card for 1.50 pesos (at Reception) that covers an hours use. But many including myself found trying to turn of and save was not straight forward. At the end I had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
The hotel is advertised by TUI as a luxury 5 star however it's more like a 2 star.The food is below average and the rooms are old and dated, they also could do with a good clean. I got food poisoning from the food so spent 2 days in bed which wasn't fun and on the last night we found a rat in our room! We made a complaint to the hotel and TUI but haven't heard back from them and it's been 3 weeks! Our holiday was definitely ruined by this experience and for the amount of money we spent we could have gone to Maldives or somewhere far better!Very disappointed!
