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 The property is a little outdated, but still well maintained and cleaned.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.
Just returned from my 1st visit to Hotel Bella Costa. And the 1st visit to Cuba. We got an ocean view room was great. Housekeeping service was unbelievable, the staffs are uncomparable to any countries, the beach is fabulous and the food is average (It's Cuba, they do not import like we do so handle your expectation on food). The beach water was enjoyable, the pool is clean and has been treated every day. Front desk, lobby bar, Jimmy's Buffet and Mirador restaurant all are serviced by a team of great staffs which made us feel like to return to this hotel in the future. When I see reviews with full of negative experience that is unfounded when we were there. Edylise and Julliet in lobby bar, Pedro, the pasta maker and omelette maker in Jimmy's Buffet can change your views to return again. And the staffs at the reception are very good. I can go on and on BUT I must say that this is a budget hotel and we had 4-star service.
This was our third visit to Bella Costa . The first since Breezes left. We normally take our vacation in Mid Oct. but due to business had to change plans. With all the family and kids at the hotel it was very difficult to get breakfast... no plates or glasses were available at times ... need to have more staff available to the areas that are not self served as the line up in those areas were a wait as long as 15 minutes for example to get a few slices of cheese and ham . Other than that we enjoyed our vacation and will return to Bella Costa again, the staff was excellent and it was nice to see some of the waiters / waitresses we knew from past visit.
I find it incredibly funny and ignorant when people write bad reviews of this hotel in Cuba. By Cuban standards NOT Canadian standards this place is amazing. I have visited serval times and I can't wait to return next month. The staff a friendly and kind. Location is great. Lots of choices for food but I think they close half the buffet during quiet season. Still lots of choices. Beach buffet is the best. Italian a la carte id the better one. I do suggest getting a room with a balcony facing the ocean. Worth every penny of that $100. Rooms with balcony can feel quite stuffy. Bring some things from home (ie ketchup peanut butter). Bring extra toiletries clothes etc for the maids, bartenders, servers and ground people. Tips are great but please keep in mind it is very hard to find quality clothes soaps perfumes in Cuba. They are very very expensive so the staff also appreciate items too. Believe me I've been to Cuba 10 times. This is one of my favourite places to go. Especially for a solo travel. I always meet great people here to hang out with. Yes the hotel could use some updates but that is it difficult to get material and resources available. Go here folks. Relax enjoy and enjoy the Cuban lifestyle a bit. Oh and get the heck off the resort. Go into varadero. Go farther than varadero. Rent a scooter for the day. It's safe. Explore. Cuba is amazing.
Nice building, majestic, stunning, stately.Restaurant and bar ...Excellent services.( just take care about quality of mojito )Room amazing, at list mine.Piano night or jazz in lobby bar, amazing..I love it.
If this hotel is inspected by a professional and honest inspector I can assure you they will close this hotel right away, it is in very bad condition. The hotel has mold all over the sealing. The day we got there it was raining and we had to move to another room because there was water all over the room and the hallways I also had to complain about the bedsheets because they were dirty and there was hair all over the floor. I was told by the receptionist that because they don't have enough employees some of the rooms don't get cleaned. The lady that changed my sheets told us someone stole a TV the day we were there and people were stealing water, toilet papers and soaps from the hotel. That explains why there were no toilet papers and hand soap on any of the bathrooms near the pool. The food was awful, I got sick from eating there. This hotel is not near a four star is most likely a 0. I had a terrible experience the only good thing I can talk about is the beach was beautiful, please do your research and find a better hotel.
