    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.

        my wife and I just got back from Cuba and have to say that we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The food was good and the A La Cartes were excellent. Would highly recommend that you upgrade to the Plus as it gets you into newer rooms away from the huslle and bussle of the lobby area. Also gets you access to the VIP bar... well worth the extra money. Make sure you try the chocolate tequila......

        My fifth time and my husband's four time at this resort was somewhat disappointing. We noticed less bathroom amenities, cutbacks in certain food items, etc, although there were improvements in some things as well, eg..The Spanish Restaurant provided a great meal when we went. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of appreciation for being return guests. We enquired about the return dinner they usually had and were told we'd have to ask about that when we made dinner reservations. We forgot...but really, we shouldn't have to ask about it. When we saw a lovely dinner set up beside the pool on the Blau Plus side where we were staying, we enquired and found out it was for return guests. My husband called customer relations about that and was told that they had us booked for that night at 8 pm. Really? We didn't receive an invitation and certainly hadn't confirmed, therefore, how is that possible? She also said maybe the invitation "blew away". Seriously? Invitations are generally left in your room, therefore, how is that possible. In receiving no recognition of our loyalty to The Blau Costa Verde, we feel no loyalty to ever return to this resort.

        went for a week left on feb 13 2015, good resort overall, although the resort itself needs to be a bit updated in order to accomodate for the amount of people that are staying in the new plus section. we stayed in block 1 in room 1306, ok room had a couple issues with the toliet , lights and the water pressure/temperature (would go from freezing cold to boiling hot constantly in a matter of a couple seconds while trying to shower). buffet was ok typical cuban food, you were able to have chicken every day which was nice, the line ups were bad at dinner even if u went close to closing (not the whole time we were there) cuban and italien a la cartes were very good koodos to them! pizza for lunch at the italien resturant is the place to eat at lunch the buffet gets very old very quick not very much for selection. shows were good , not much enthusiasim as we have seen at other resorts but overall they were very good. beach was good, if you want watershoes they r good to have we didnt bring any and were fine just look where your stepping and snorkaling was amazing taking bread to feed the fish is fun, lots of fish and urchins to see! if we were to go back we would definatly update to plus and another tip , give the security guys at stations around the resort a tip they stand there day and night to make sure everything is going well, they derserve a good tip or something!

        Loved the Blau. Would absolutely come back here again. We had a really great experience at our first all inclusive resort and first time in Cuba and are really glad we picked the Blau. Went during the high season (Feb 14-21) so it was fairly busy, but we didn't mind. We were in CUBA and escaping the cold. I'll try and keep this review short and the tips and tricks I would do for next time. ROOMS: Paid extra for the Plus Oceanview room. Well worth the $$ and very glad we did this. Stayed in block 36 and didn't mind the walk to the main lobby, pool or beach. All were about 3-5mins walk away. We had a couple of beautiful sunsets on the balcony. Gorgeous! Room was good and cleaning staff were great. Fridge always stocked with water and beer. Bed was very hard, only real bummer. Back to get a little sore after the 5th/6th day. Room was spacious and basic, bathroom/shower were great. No problems. **TIP** Bring a roll or two of your own TP. Your bum will thank you even if you don't have the crab-apple splatters. FOOD: *note we are NOT picky eaters/super foodies/or crazy food connoisseurs* Buffet was pretty good. Was prepare for the worst because of the stories you hear, but we were pleasantly surprised. Always lots of option, fresh steamed veggies, meats, pasta, rice, etc. Didn't get sick of it. We could have eaten at the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner as there was always something tasty and delicious. Buffet by the beach was also great as well. Booking the plus side you get 4 a la carte meals and it was worth it. Lobster, French, Spanish and Italian all delicious! Heard the Cuban was great too. **TIP** Book your a la cart meals the morning you get there. Waited until the 2nd day and found they were almost filled up and booked just in the nick of time. BEACH/ VIP PLUS POOL: Beach was fantastic. There are rocks and coral which make for good snorkelling. You can walk in a bit, pick a path when getting into the water, or you just have to swim/float over them until you get to the sandy part or bring water shoes. Water was warm, sand was soft, and there's a bar close to the entrance of the beach. LOVED IT! VIP pool was also great. Not overly busy, great swim up bar and great bartenders. **TIP** Beach gets busy in the morning, so before you go for breakfast, go claim your chair with your towel. **TIP** Bring a snorkel, mask and flippers with you, lots of good snorkelling! **TIP** Bring your own reusable cup/bubba cup **TIP** Public bathrooms and washrooms by the beach did NOT have any toilet paper Overall great stay at the Blau. Already planning our next vacation back! **TIP** You can request a late check out on the morning of your final day for $15 CUC. Worth it if you have a late flight. **TIP** We also purchased the VIP Airport service and it was also worth it. Air conditioning, free snacks, good washrooms with toilet paper and comfortable chairs made waiting for our delayed flight a little easier. ** TIP** Duty Free at the Holguin Airport was great. LOTS of liquor and rum,. They also had some souvenirs, coffee, postcards and knickknacks. There are about 4 little shops in the airport to do any last minute shopping. As for cigars, they can be bought at the airport or at the Blau in their little gift shop as well.
