      Varadero is amazing
      The hotel has a privileged location at the entrance of the beach resort of Varadero. It is surrounded by exuberant tropical gardens of palm and coconut trees, and has a spectacular swimming pool and a pool for children, in addition to being close to one of the region's best beaches, with fine sand and crystal-clear water. The hotel is at walking distance from Varadero's shopping area and terraces. It is at a 25-minute drive from "Juan Gualberto Gómez" International

      They will be better
      This was our second visit to this resort and this is my second review, the first one being March 2006. We went back to the Blau because we had such a great time on the first trip and made some really good friends with several of the staff. Our room was in one of the blocks with an ocean view and as usual it was clean, tidy and served it's purpose. There was some minor chips to the bath and the sealant around the bath could do with replacing, but nothing that spoiled our holiday. The location of the room meant that we didn't get any sun on the balcony in the afternoon which was disappointing. A number of people, particularly those staying in the blcok where reception is located, were complaining of having no hot water in our first week. This never effected us and we always had loads of hot water and good pressure. The food was generally pretty good, there have been some improvements in the buffet since our previous visit. There was a carvery most nights with really good roast meats. Some nights it was just one type other nights it was a selection of different meats, lamb, beef. pork, chicken. The cooked veg selection was also better. Yes, sometimes there was a shortage of plates and some people got really wound up about it. Just ask the staff and fresh plates will be brought out, it may take 5 or ten minutes before they appear but so what. Chill out, relax and stop stressing, that's what this place is all about and remember you are on Cuban time!!!! Just one disappointing note for those who have been before. The seafood restaurant is no longer located alongside the lagoon, it is now at the rear of the buffet building. Unfortunately, the atmosphere is not so good and Liber's bar is no more This was our second visit to this resort and this is my second review, the first one being March 2006.

The seafood restaurant is no longer located alongside the lagoon, it is now at the rear of the buffet building. Unfortunately, the atmosphere is not so good and Liber's bar is no more !!!! ;-(. He now works in the lobby bar. As I have already said Liber's bar is no more and he is now lcoated in the lobby bar. I personally don't think this bar is the greatest idea any one ever had. Too many of the staff use it through the day and this can mean waiting to get served. Although, it is management policy that they DO NOT use this bar, they ignore that rule. It wasn't 24 hour when we there, only La Placita was open 24 hours. This is the small outside bar located adjacent to the buffet building. The piano bar was quite good some nights and other nights it was completely dead. The beach was great as usual. The majority of days it was windy but the breeze stops you from over heating and can create some great waves which are fun for messing around in. Note - this is not a great beach for young children, there can be a bit of an undertow in the water and the waves can get quite rough. There were jelly fish but we never got stung by them and they weren't really an issue for us. We didn't really spend anytime around the pool. It was being repainted while we were there and one half was closed for one week and the other half closed the week after. The animation staff are great but for me I don't want Butlins style entertainment. I make my own entertainment and loud music and games are not what I was there for. In the 2nd week of our stay there were less than 150 people at the hotel and in the 3rd week this dropped to just over 100. The service in the buffet wasn't always as good as it could be and several people did get quite angry and annoyed by slow service, lack of plates, waiting for things to be cooked. Also, the food in some of the restaurants was not up to par on some of the nights we went. As the hotel was so quiet a lot of the main staff took their 2 week holiday during this time, meaning that a lot of the staff were students and trainees. As we had been before we were able to see past this sort of thing but for those coming for the first time it didn't give the best impression. We will definitely go again but I don't think we would go at the same time of year. The weather wasn't so predictable, we did have rain and it was overcast on a few days although the coolest day was still 27 in the shade. The other half of the complex was undergoing major works and it looks likely that this half will reopen in 2008. I suspect that when it does they will close the other half for renovation. I just hope it doesn't take as long, 7 years !!!! Anyone going to Cuba needs to bear in mind that in world terms this is a Third World country and they have an attitude to life that is a mixture of Carribean and Spanish, very laid back and everything tomorrow !! ;-) Just go there to relax and unwind and don't expect European or North American - rush rush rush and you will love it.
