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 The property is a little outdated, but still well maintained and cleaned.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.
A visit to Hotel Bella Costa is the highlight of my winter. I will be returning for my third visit this March. The staff are very friendly, personable, and efficient. The beach is amazing and the food is varied and delicious. The family suites are very large, well maintained, and scrupulously clean. The outdoor stage was awaiting repair during my last trip so the entertainment was held inside.
It was our second time there. The food, people, beach and family villa were wonderful. We greatly enjoyed the returning guest dinner and the addition of Alicia's, serving pizza etc. The outdoor stage was in disrepair so shows were inside. We had no problems. Enjoyed every minute. We are booked to go back next year!
My husband and I just returned from Bella Costa for a week stay from may 6th to may 13th.I would like to first start with the pros, it's a quick 3 hour flight from Toronto, fast transfer from airport to the hotel. The weather was absolutely perfect the whole 7 days we were there, beautiful sunsets.As for the hotel itself, it's rated 4 plus, and for Cuba we thought this would be pretty good for a quick week away. Let me start with our first impression, it was a big entry and lobby area, looked pretty good, old and worn but not bad for Cuba. As we checked in we started to see how worn it seemed to be. We were taken to our first room and both looked each and said no. Was very old, curtains hanging off the rods, dirty comforter, a pipe coming out of the toilet, and a strong musty smell, we went down to the front desk and told them it was unacceptable, gave us another room , wasn't much better, but realized this was as good as it would get.We went down to explore the resort, pool area etc. There was pool liner, we thought that odd, and as days went by realized it was quite dangerous on the stairs, seen a few people stumble to get in and out, elderly people. The liner itself in the pool was lifting, and mold around the edges . Pool never seemed to be cleaned. Food was ok, could always find something, rice and beans, pasta etc. Our biggest complaint was the service, seemed to be bothering people at mealtime, had to ask for coffee or drinks when staff seemed to standing around. We are very generous tippers and that didn't seem to matter so we slowed down with that after a few days. Our maid Yadira was ABSOLUTELY amazing, went beyond our expectations,she left us notes everyday, seemed to be very cheery and made us feel welcome. Our last night there was very interesting to say the least , we started to find out they let some pretty sketchy people into the resort for the weekend, people bothering patrons , being very forward with advances and making people feel very uncomfortable. Enough said about that.We met some wonderful people vacationing as well, made the trip very memorable! If service had been better , rather made to feel welcome there, we could accept the rest as not so bad. Hoping they can clean this place up very soon, and customer service is 85% of any business, there is a long way to go with that. As for anyone going to this hotel , this is not a 4 star, please be buyer aware.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Bella Costa for my 60th birthday. The staff were fabulous and everyone was friendly, courteous and always eager to please.On our return to UK our eldest daughter heard us enthusing about our holiday and asked if she could get married on the beach there. Saving now for wedding party of 10 to stay in May 2018.
I cannot believe some of he reviews for the resort. Its like they have there own staff writing review to make this dump look good. This resort was by far the worst I've ever stayed at. The rooms were ok definitely due for some renos but I do understand it's Cuba. However the service was terrible the food was terrible the pool liner was lifting and rippled all over to the point of trippin. The beach almost never gets cleared of debris every 2nd day if your lucky. The staff are not friendly AT ALL.. get ready to wait for an service of any sort there. We were tipping with every drink and every meal we ordered yet they would ignore you and rarely even says thanks. What surprises me is that I stayed there a week ago and talked to an awful lot of guests there how clearly felt the same as we did and said they would NEVER come back yet you read these reviews of this wonderful resort. How can this be possible like something is up here!!! This place is awful the staff couldn't care less to make your stay pleasant!!!!! All I can say is I have never wrote a review but this place is so bad and these reviews about it being this nice place is a load of crap so I had to write something! DONT RUIN YOUR VACATION like we did.
