Hotel Bella Costa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Hotel Bella Costa is a great resort for those looking for plenty of day excursions and activities to do. Much like other resorts, this one is situated amongst a beautiful strip of beach. The pool is good. However, during some parts of the day, it does have a tendency to get really busy and packed with kids. The staff is incredibly friendly and personable. Most of them would remember you by name. Plenty of food options available for buffets and a la cartes. Make sure to make a reservation at the Italian Restaurant. The property is a little outdated, but still well maintained and cleaned. Overall however, this is hotel is great for its value.
Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes to downtown Varadero.
Wow, the people are the best. They bent over backwards to assist us, above and beyond. The hotel showed signs of the recent huricanes but they were still working on ths repairs without disrupting the guests. The Beach was amazing!
I found what I was looking for. Nice beach, swimming pool and the weather was fantastic.The staff starting from the front desk, kitchen, maid and beach very,,very friendly .Ever day fresh towels and bottle of water from room maid- good job.. Really after couple days it was like home for me. It was my first trip to Cuba and I love....it. Some construction work after Irma, but it did not bother me. For sure I will go back to this hotel..Wish to have an ocean view room again.Good job guys and....Hasta la vista Bella Costa soon.Wes K.
We are experienced Cuba travelers so we know what to expect in Cuba. PROS: Beach - amazing! One of the best in the world. Sand is beautiful, we did not have any jellyfish and there is no coral to worry about. Size - just right. Not too much walking but enough to see.Jacuzzi - perfect for nighttime. A lot of people didn't know it was there, so be sure to find it.Drinks - really good, great bartenders.CONS:Food - we know it is Cuba, and we know what to expect, but we were disappointed by the lack of selection in the buffet. That being said, we still had enough to eat and never went hungry. Lunch buffet by the beach has the best food, so be sure to fill up then.Maintenance issues - hotel is one of the older hotels, needs some maintenance. For instance, pool liner is coming up in places, bathroom ceiling and shower in our room leaked water. As well, the bath tub in the shower was quite small, only about a foot and a half wide.Staff - not as friendly as we have experienced in other hotels in Cuba.Location - generally speaking, Varadero hotels are very close to each other ie) you can walk not too far on the beach and hit quite a few hotels. If you are looking for a more spread out beach, go to Cayo Santa Maria instead.Overall, we go to Cuba for the beaches, so we were satisfied with this hotel. If you are budget/price conscious and looking for a place to relax, you should go.
I'm not fussy about hotel. I just had cockroaches in my bathroom which I can't stand. If I knew I wouldn't have gone there and paid the extra $. I thought I could expect that from a 3.5 star hotel (not having roommates). That being said. The staff is amazing and they do everything they can to please you and make your stay as enjoyable as can be. The food is ok at the buffet and there is a snack bar with hot-dogs, hamburgers and pizzas open +/- 24 hrs. So there is a way to find something to eat. Anyways, you don't go to Cuba for the food right?The beach is great, lots of chairs available. Even though they had the hurricane earlier in the season I didn't feel it at all. They're fixing it discreetly. The hotel is very clean, the floor is always shiny in the hallway (the roach issue must come from the insecticides they're using or not).
After reading the reviews for this resort I was bit sure what to expect, but I am glad I trusted my instincts and booked Bella Costa. If you are a fussy traveler and are looking for the fancy, spend your money and book an expensive hotel! Bella Costa is a great hotel with a great price. I am not a fussy traveler and I found this place to be perfect for what I was looking for. Yes it is old and yes it could use some updating but for what it is it was great. The staff at the resort are wonderful and I never had any issues. My room had a very comfortable bed (well there were two), a flat screen tv (turned it on once, it worked) and a fully functional bathroom. My view was amazing.The grounds are kept well and they are rebuilding the restaurant on the beach. The Buffett was good, I am vegetarian and I found something to eat everyday, although it is much of the same food everyday I never went hungry. I forgot how awesome the pineapple in Cuba is, so I was sure to eat that for every meal! The beach was amazing as well. They cleaned it every morning (would also like to note, TOURISTS DONT BE JERKS, PICK UP AFTER YOURSELF!) there were always chairs and if you needed an umbrella there was someone around to help out. The nightly entertainment was good, those dancers work hard and it shows. I enjoyed them every night. The hotel is a quick 10 minute cab away from Varadero Centre.All and all I had a fantastic time, met loads of single travelers like myself, glad I was able to look past all of the complainers on TripAdvisor and booked this hotel! I would visit here again for sure. You get what you pay for, so if you want fancy, pay the extra $$ for fancy and book a 5 star.
