Our Opinion

The Blau Resort is an amazing luxury resort for couples wanting to rest and relax in Varadero. The hotel has a great lay-out. The grounds are well-maintained and cleaned daily. Be advised and careful when it rains however, as there are large puddles that can collect around the grounds. Clean and pleasant lay out of the rooms as well. They had a variety of nightly entertainment that's often different every night. Make sure to check out the aquatic show if you can. This property boasts some of the of the best stretches of beach in the strip. The area has a tendency to get relatively busy, so make sure to get there early!

Come and ruin your vacation !! Your family don't forgive you it ever !1

Don't make the mistake of selecting this hotel because your family don't forgive you it ever. Very bad hotel. Very bad service. Drinks available are very low quality. No Cuban mojito any day. Lines to pick up meals in the buffet everyday. No hygiene at all.. Lack of maintenance throughout the hotel. No lemon in the lobby bar the first day. No ice in the buffet the first day. No mint in the hotel for Cuban mojito. If you want to drink water bottle, you will have to buy it in the shopping store. Only 1 bottle of water for customer for day in your room. No water bottle in the buffet. Two small towels in the room but we were 3 people. Our Triple room with only one bed for 2 people. More than 4 hours to take an additional bed. Only one very old 19" TV without remote control in the room. Broken AC in the room. Customer service is not able to solve ANY problem. Do not loss your time trying to fix any problem. They do not solve nothing for you. The only two good things: the hotel location and the Cuban animation team with good entertainment shows. This is not a 2 star hotel.

DISAPPOINTED STATES FIVE STARS BUT IS NOT

i would not rate this resort a five stars..but a 3 unfortunately maybe even a 2 it has potential to make this a five stars...but is not! our stay was mid july this year for ten days ...and we were very disappointed..overall...The STAFF everyone especially at the lobby front desk and most of all the BAR area....were the best...always with a smile, friendly, so this made our stay very pleasant. Our room was nice,,,okay ..but would need improvement....forgot to bring us towels or water bottles...we had to ask for ...at one time the water bottle when opened smelled...and it was from the tap!! Also the buffet area where we had breakfast, lunch and dinner...the food very very disappointed and NO AIR CONDITION....yup NO AIR CONDITION....it was unbearable!!!! One night were having supper with friends....and we asked for white wine...my husband when drinking the wine...what is this? it was from a wine bottle,...it was WATER...the lady came to excuse her herself one thousand times....the wine was always hot....not cool...always the same food...the cheeses...warm....coldcuts...warm.. What the HECK!! The snack bar the food ..lets not get into that..awful! The pool not clean.......Sadly there was an incident someone fell/slipped on the floor ..the night before i believe it had rained and water on the floor ...when in the morning while walking to the buffet ..we saw blood...and on our return the blood was still on the floor...no one No One came to clean it up ..my stomached turned... The medical center went in once to ask for a band aid...they told us to go to the pharmacy which was on the other side of our hotel at the Marina Varadero to buy!...I have to say thought that the shows at night were FANTASTIC...all the dancers...bravo ...great job!!!!!! The entertainment was great! thank you! THE WORST WAS THE MOSQUITOS....i was stung..bitten....in the lobby , buffet , where we had to seat during the shows...OMG..they were everywhere.....IT WAS HORRENDOUS. the resort was not sprayed.or what!!!!!!..stayed at another resort another time .....we can say we will never go back and will not recommend this place.

Worst service ever

Service was terrible. Check in was at 3pm and we got the room at 6pm. The Snack bar was closed. The food was terrible and you could choke and never get a glass of water. The mosquitoes and flies were swarming the place. The staff ignored you all the time. Getting water was harder than in the Sahara. Catamaran people leave you waiting because they have to go for lunch instead of going at different hours, The souvenir store opens whenever they feel like it. The disco was closed. Only one restaurant was open. The bartender will ignore you. The pool was closed. The coffee machine had hot water but no tea. There were cockroaches in the buffet. It was a total disaster. I think it would be too much to expect any kind of compensation.

The beach

The hotel is in an excellent location along white clean beaches.There is no doubt that the beaches are the most powerful part of this hotel.Quiet, peaceful and amazing sea.But you have to take into account that the hotel is 5 stars (according to what appears in the publications) but not standard 5 stars in Europe or any other Western country in the world.The standard rooms are essentially basic and do not match the 5-star standard, the same for food and service.

  • Sam G :
Amazing beach

This was a great hotel for someone that wants a nice place to lay their head at night. As always the food is not the best but you can always find something to eat. The staff were great and always made sure you were happy. The only thing I would change at this hotel was the number of bars located inside the hotel. They had one only and it was always very very busy so hard to find a place to sit down.
