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.

Holguin was a very awesome place to go...We loved it and we would go back in a heart beat. It is very family friendly and the kids always had a little kids club that they could do at night. They had a little market that you can go to by shuttle that was very cool also..Eating wise it was just the ala cartes, They were excellant expecially the italian one with the pizza it was awesome...definetly i would go back

My husband and myself first went to the Blau jan. 2014. We had a great time but the weather wasn't so great so we decided to come back and give it another try. Well it was just as good as the first time. I emailed the hotel about two weeks before we left to request block 16 or 17 in the plus section and was given block 17 which was perfect. Its away from the main hotel and very quiet . The room was clean, lots of hot water and good air conditioning. Soaps and shampoos in the bathroom and always clean towels everyday. The food was just okay at the beginning of the week but by the middle it was great. Roast turkey, chicken. pork. Lots of local fish and loads of shrimps etc. The bread is delicious. so no worry about finding something to eat. There is the Italian restaurant which serves pizzas etc during lunch and its good. Now the beach was beautiful. The weather was perfect and the water was calm. There is rocks but if you bring water shoes its not a problem. there is snorkling and diving. Its just a great place. Bring your snorkling gear and you will have a great time. We had 2 hours of rain from nov 8th to the 15th and 30c plus everyday, NOW the only problem I had with the front desk was I asked for a late check out which three people told me it was 15 pesos and it was BUT as a returning guest its suppose to be free and also a lobster dinner for returning guests which neither was offered to me . I knew about the dinner but not the late check out so I was kind of really disappointed that they didn't bother to tell me and they knew we were returning guests. makes me not really want to go back there for that reason. we shall see. Its not a hotel for college crowd but for people wanting to relax and just enjoy.

I wanted this to begin with the fact this hotel offered us the best food ever in Cuba. We have been Cuba lovers for over ten years and always disregarded the fact the food was so so but things have changed and this hotel offered us the best ever. We booked and upgraded our package to incude our room being in the newer section (one year old) of the property. There are several two story blocks ours was 19. This block was not the most central but the extra walk not bad either. When looking out our second floor room from the back balcony you could actually see the ocean. It was far away but you could see and hear it. A bonus. There are two pools and the one closest to us was the pool exclusively for the "Plus" package we were on. The other is closer to the lobby and buffet areas and not all that far away from our block. The package also included a few alacarte dinners including a lobster dinner and as mentioned these were amazing. All served fine dining style and often with sparkling wine ..........we were spoiled. The buffet was large and plentiful. There are other options like a beach restaruant and a pizza restaruant beside the main bar area. The pizza was the best had in Cuba. I know I sound like I am repeating myself it was a surprise about the food. I did want to mention a few people who made our vacation special...........Rebeca the hostess who was able to change our reservation time from a later on to a much earlier one. she made it seem like it wasnt a problem. The server Idania who ensured our sparkling wine was always refilled. Adam a bartender who created our beer and tomato juice drinks and remembered the next day when he was placed at another bar and we ran into him there. Miguel the bartender at the pool bar who made the best cappacinos and pina coladas. Not to be last and not least Betsey who helped us ensure a later checkout (even though there was a charge) as our bus to pick us up at 6:30 pm and check out at noon. We extended out stay till 4 in the room, quite handy. I must not forget the animaticion shows every night. We were at a few that were a must not miss...........the water show and the black light show were very entertaining. I hope I did not forget anyone as this place totally impressed us. The only negative was the beach, unfortunately there were rocks not a smooth sand surface as I had hoped. We did not use the beach except to walk however it was suggested we go down a further there were less rocks.

Stayed here as a couple for a week at the beginning of November 2014. Hotel was wonderful - superb service, clean, well laid out and beautifully kept. We walked through the resort on the first morning to the beach and were totally blown away - it is just beautiful. In the hotel, pools, bars, beach and all amenities were excellent and very clean and the cocktails great. Food was super with lots of choice and a different thematic restaurant every night. Some of the food was interesting as you have to remember you are in Cuba but there was always something to choose. All the sports facilities were good and you can sail, windsurf etc on site too. There is also a scuba dive centre which you pay for but it is very reasonable and worth a go. The entertainment is there if you want it or you can ignore it if you prefer. In the evening there is classical music, pianist or jazz in the lobby bar before dinner then later there is an act on the open air stage or inside stage if the weather isn't appropriate. No karaoke or drunken rubbish - it was all really good. Would love to visit again and would thorougly recommed the resort. Rooms were kept really clean and lovely with towells made into swan shapes etc. All the staff in this resort are to be commended for their excellent service and warm hospitality.

This hotel is very clean, stayed in bloke 6 Excellent hot water in the shower .Rooms air conditioned and provided cool relief during hot times of day. The beach is about a 2 minute walk do need swimming shoes a few rocks. The staff was very friendly and helpful They worked hard to provide a good service A good buffet 15 or so tables, and featured cooks to prepare food to your liking. Some tables would also appeal to a vegetarian as there was a wide selection of food and beverages available. There is an italian restarant on the premises as well and all the food was delicious a good cuban one to The medic center was very helpful when on my second day went down with a bug THIS WAS NO FAUILT Of THE HOTEL come on to quick we think it was from the plane I cannot say enough good things about this place; I will certainly go back and experience one of the best hotels I have ever been to.
