    I would not go to Blau Costa Verde until all construction is finished. There is machinery on the path to the beach and lobby area and pool area. Very dangerous and noisy. There was 1 bar open with very little to offer. The buffet was moved the the beach area. It is a total mess right now and really should not be open.

        Decided to go and give another chance to THE BLAU and wahat an amazing experience this time around.. Stayed in the plus section, which has a private pool and more excess to the ala carte restaurants What experienced was the staff were very happy and friendly The Head Chef Romnn(Mr Excellent) was always around and made sure the food quality was maintained willing to listen and make accommodation a friendly man on the go . Kelvys bar manager a happy and easy to approach person. made sure the quality drinks in the VIP bar were available Yunier @the VIP bar made you feel at home and gave excellent service. made the best PINA COLADA @ the bar Alexander always seem to know what we were drinking The waiter waiters at the buffet ala carte excellent!!! This time was very please with overall service, staff, food and to see happy staff. and would recommend this resort.. compliments to Blau Costa looking forward to being there again!! BRAVO! BRAVO! Some improvements could be made in the rooms(plus section) to have more lighting in the bathrooms so we man can find it easy to shave(possible over the mirror) The 24 hour restaurant could have a bit more variety of food choice I think also when buses arrive there should be a welcoming committee to help guide and make people at ease just a suggestion

        This has been our 4th time at the Blau. A lot have changed in the resort with the addition of new restaurants, swimming pools and bar at the expense of a very little difference in the price, yes, we upgrade to PLUS and it was worth it. The only "problem" I have this time was that the reservation was some how messed up and we ended up in a first floor instead of a higher level requested 2 months in advance directly to the resort. A tip for the resort and just speaking from the point of view of a customer that had been there 4 times, I think it is time to freshen up the shows at night. we have seen the exactly same shows 4 times in a row in fact acts like the one with the magic black light have even "the same songs" as 3 years ago. assisting to the shows at night is something we like to see but not the same ones. To the new manager (I believe his name is Federico): It doesn't hurt to smile and introduce yourself to your guests like the other previous managers did (Paula and Jose Maria) and if you need to discipline your employees, do it privately and not in the humiliating way you did in the buffet restaurant in front of 100+ guests ... it isn't nice. Even when you think no one is watching there is always people like me paying special attention to these details.

          This was my first time in Holguin at Playa Pesquero. We were not lucky with the temperature for the week of Nov 26th to Dec 3rd. Three good days of sun and rain for the other days. Fernando the tourist guide for Sunwing was of great help, made a call for me to an International Medical clinic to find the information I needed. He recommended a local taxi driver that was super! One important thing I want to tell futur travellers to Cuba is to bring as a gift to cubans is razor blades....shampoo, soap, as they have been out of it for quite some time...I saw in their store that 6 razors sold for 21 pesos. So, if you want to tip them with this and pesos, the employees that work with the tourist, really appreciate this. I gave some to taxi driver, bartenders,restaurent employees and front desk. Enjoy your holiday!!!

          Stayed here for one week at the end of November. The hotel is very nice and right on the beach. We had the all inclusive package, but not the upgraded all inc. The upgrade entitles you to a rather lonely time at a deserted pool and bar. The people we spoke to who had upgraded, were in the ordinary bar with the rest of the holiday makers because, even though their bar provided premium branded spirits, they found it was more fun where the crowds were. There is very little outside the hotel but it is easy to get to Holguin for nightlife. The hotel entertainment was excellent and bars very nice. I would strongly recommend you invest in tropical strength mosquito repellant containing DEET, and you should also pack swim shoes as the sand, for first few metres to go for a swim is rather stony. The sea temp is lovely. I think November is the quiet time, and we were a bit disappointed to experience three days of heavy rain, but when the sun was out, it was lovely and around 20 -25degrees. We booked a few excursions, Dolphinarium, well worth it; Horseriding, well worth it; Cuban Life, I would give that a miss. If you go out and about, take tissues and hand sanitizer with you. We would visit Cuba Again and would happily stay at Blau Costa Verde again.

          This was our eighth visit to Cuba and our fifth stay at the Blau, which we have come to regard as our home away from home. Standards are consistently high, and the food was generally of very high quality. As returning guests, we received the welcome-back lobster dinner, and having paid for the Blau Plus, we were entitled to two extra a la carte meals, access to a much larger pool, and admission to a bar that serves premium drinks. We did not stay in the plus section, which offers more modern rooms, as the block available to us was too distant for my wife, currently dealing with a mobility problem, to regularly negotiate. The first room we were assigned in the old section was too noisy, being close to the 24-hour-bar, but we had no problem obtaining another, quieter room the next day. Service is of consistently high quality, with all staff working hard and graciously. Senorita Barbara, the Public Relations manager, is always a pleasure to see, and during the welcome-back dinner, she introduced the general manager, the grounds manager, the cook and the wait staff for the evening – a classy acknowledgment of some of the people who always make our stay so enjoyable. I doubt very much that we will ever stay at a Holguin resort other than the Blau. With friendly staff, good food and a great beach (just make sure to bring your beach shoes!), why would we go anywhere else?
