    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.

        I went to this hotel with my fiance and had a wonderful stay. Travellers should remember that cuba is a poor country and food and items are very basic therefore if you go expecting the ritz in cuba you will be disappointed. It is common in cuba that hotels and restaurants can run out of things such as potatoes however the hotel was very good at improvising and served a lovely alternative to fries. We paid 130 for the two of us to upgrade to vip and this was well worth it as we got a room with a few extras such as a coffee maker and fridge was stocked daily. The vip pool was very nice and the vip bar served amazing cocktails. However be warned the vip bar Cocktails are strong so be careful! We were disappointed that the swim up bar in vip area was shut due to being broken as it looked lovely. If you are upgrading then do it through the hotel as you will be ripped off by Thomas Cook! They want 300 per person! We did get an infestation of ants in the room however the hotel staff attended to this and got rid of them. Beach was very nice. Food was excellent and there was plenty of choice. Pizza place at lunch time was our favourite however the hotel should definately have more than one waitress serving as it is a bit of a wait getting served. Tried all of the a la cartes and enjoyed them all apart from the spannish. Entertainment team were brilliant and very friendly. Evening entertainment was also fab and we really enjoyed the opera and aquatic show. Only negative was We witnessed a nasty assault by one guest on another and the hotel did nothing and continued to serve the man alcohol. Violence of any kind should not be tolerated. In all would highly recommend.

            One of the best places to visit in Cuba. Love it, I would go back anytime. Very friendly people, nice bars and shows, awesome beach and place for scuba diving, very good animation team. Good place for family trip. On the minus side: don't fly CubanAir / those planes are like a bus with wings.

            First time in Cuba and had amazing time! We upgraded room when we arrived at the hotel what worked out a lot cheaper. I would recommened this it only cost 98 pesos for the two weeks the rooms were fresh and new. We did a boat trip and also swimming with dolphins, it was nice to do things outside of the hotel as there is not a great deal to do outside of resort. From upgrading we had choice of more resturants and the VIP lounge with very nice cocktails. There is a dress code for all resturants except the buffet, long trousers for men. Cocktails were amazing in all the different shaped glasses not in little plastic cups you get in some places. The entertainment was really good we all enjoyed it very much. 24 hour bar/ snacks what came in very handy if you like a good drink with no time limit as most resorts stop all inclusive at 12pm. I proberly wouldnt go back as I like to go to many different places but would definitely recommened.

            Hotel located 40 min from Holguin International Airport. Travelling from airport to the hotel will provide you a scenery of rural life and local traditions. Accommodation well organized with multiple areas to enjoy your staying as gym, little day care for kids, tennis courts. Pools always clean and high quality access with aqua bar inside. Children pool amazing area to play in the water. Food service with multiple options and variety, take it easy to eat healthy and enjoy local spcialities. Snack bar close to the beach for extra demanding cases. Beach bar just at the beach to relax and cool down. Security around the hotel, feeling save. Suggestions: - if kind of person to prefer nigh life, take a room around main pools, otherwise search for areas 28 for more quite, orientation of room windows important to avoid strong sunny light in the afternoon - canadians dollars well accepted for local exchange - go and explore villages around - great to see and swim with dolphins using local travel agency - ocean access best at the beach bar

                My wife and I were quite apprehensive about visiting Cuba, heard lots of stories regarding quality of resorts/food/beaches. We chose Holguin because our friends who have visited claim it is one of the better locations. Long story short, service food and resort were all top notch and we have no real complaints. Would have been nicer to have food selection change a little more during our stay but only nit-pickers would argue that. The resort was very well laid out and found no walk seemed too long to get to where we have to go. Note: we had a plus room which I believe makes a huge difference in experience and think if we had not it's possible this review would be different. Heard some complaints during excursions about other resorts and we felt we made the right choice with Blau! Only, stay away from Sunwing - no good stories with this airline at all (but that's for another review!)
