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 The property is a little outdated, but still well maintained and cleaned.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.
Stay away this hotel is horrible I went here with my family there was 9 of us and is nothing like the photos or what it says it's run down dirty the food is disgusting and the restaurant is full of flys and birds eating from serving dishes flys r all over the restaurant landing all over the food the first night we was there they run out of plates the cutlery and glasses are dirty the table clothes where all stained it was horrible and when we got to our room which was the bungalows they where dark smelly and bed sheets where stained and worn the bathroom was horrible plughole was full of hair enamel was all chipped of baths shower just trickled out we also found rat droppings in one of the rooms it was horrible !!! and hotel was full of locals which are very rude and have no sense of queuing and just push in and carry on like they have never ate drinks where nasty absolutely hated it moved after 2days do not recommend avoid this hotel !!!!!
My husband, myself and our 2 kids just came back after 7 days stay. I do not even know where to start. This hotel is so DIRTY. The rooms are digustingly dirty and infested with ants, the beds are old and I would cry to lay my body on that filfth. The room smelled of mold, the AC hardly worked which made our room humid and the bed sheets damp. The feel of the coils sticking out from the mattress gave me back pains. We were ready to go home after day 2. The cleansiness of this hotel is inexistent and was the main problem. The rude staff (other than the pasta guy and Adrian at front desk). When staff is rolling their eyes at you because you ask politely for a drink or food there is a HUGE problem. To be honest, I concluded the staff is miserable because no one tips other than tourists which brings me to my next point. Another huge disappointment was the rude and obnoxious locals that were there. I would say 90% of the people that stayed there were locals. They seriously have NO manners (loud, cutting in line, not waiting to be served, and extremely entitled. This was My 5th trip to Cuba and by far the worst one. Bring your own towels if you DARE book this hotel. We got towels only 1 day out of the 7 we stayed. The guy kept telling us how he doesn't have clean towels and didn't know when he would have some. The bathroom shower was rusted and stained (yuk). Our family showered with flip flops on. The bathroom smelled like sewer. The birds eating straight out of the buffet. The amount of flies in Jimmy's buffet. The waiters and waitress in that buffet are useless and very lazy. All in all, you should avoid this hotel at all costs. This is not a 4 star hotel. Our family will never be returning to this place. Even if the trip was offered to us for free. It was that bad and we couldn't wait to get back home. We overpaid for what we got. The only place we felt comfortable was the beach. Absolutely spectacular. Please don't waste your money. STAY AWAY!!!!! TRUST ME!!!!
We travelled to Bella Costa back in February 2017 with another couple. This was our 4th time to Bella Costa and we were shocked to see how a resort has changed within a year. I was going to write a review when we returned but decided not to. Upon reading all the recent reviews my emotions have resurfaced and had to warn everyone that all the above reviews are 100% TRUE. The locals were everywhere. My husband is a pretty laid back guy but after being pushed and shoved a few times in line he had enough. No glasses, cutlery and dishes is correct. The pool liner has been floating for 4 years now. Some workers are great but others could care less. We use to love coming back to Bella but no more. We already booked our next holiday to Holquin. Please save your money like the rest of the reviews say and stay elsewhere.
I just returned from Bella Costa, we were 3 adults and 3 kids. This was my 2nd time here, was here last 4yrs ago. Yes the hotel is dated but there are renovations going on, painting, stage repair outside... the rooms are comfortable and clean, bathroom needs to be renovated, no bugs seen inside our rooms. I stayed in room 384 and had a beautiful oceanview and poolview. The hotel staff is great, always friendly and always cleaning. There were a lot of locals vacationing at the resort and yes they cut in line and clean out every plate on the buffet. My tip is eat early, you'll have more of a selection. We never went hungry and no one got sick. The locals love the pool area so just go to the beach. The beach is Amazing, we loved it. We made the best of our vacation, everyone had a great time. Those who complain should either stay home or go spend $2000 per person somewhere else. We went to eat outside the resort at La Fiesta del Carbone, the food was great, and our taxi driver came back to pick us up. Just go and enjoy your vacation.
I have to warn you that the locals are about 85%. They litter in the beach and kind of rude to tourists! If you can go to an adults only hotel it would be preferable because the locals bring in their whole family & CROWD the pool!!!!! They NEVER leave the pool & it's so small! The washroom is disgusting I have to wear my slippers to shower!Stay in the beach you'll be happier! I still have 6 more days in the hotel & I wish I booked somewhere else.Positive: the beach is very calm and niceFood: you are in Cuba so you cannot be picky.
