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

Fantastic week with good variety of food. The room was a bit out dated, but the chambermaid did a wonderful job with keeping it very clean. We always had hearts, flowers, swans on the beds (made from the blankets, towels). We stayed in Block 1000. Short walk to the ocean. GREAT AREA FOR SNORKELING, DIVING, MANY DIFFERENT SPECIES OF FISH, CORAL. WOW!! If you are walking in for the first time, please wear aqua shoes, as there is a lot of coral close to shore. ONE MAJOR DRAW BACK...OUR UNDERWATER CAMERA WAS STOLEN FROM THE "SECURE LOCKUP LUGGAGE ROOM" Problem was we did not have the time to report it when we were there (same day our flight was returning home) Did not realize it at the time. FOUND SUITCASE ZIPPER WAS OPEN (DID NOT DOUBLE CHECK OUR BELONGINGS) My husband and I did try to contact this hotel after arriving home (after discovering the camera was stolen from the suitcase) Wanting to email/phone - did not get any response back. We have other pictures on the SD card that we will never get back ;(

Stayed two weeks in January, been to this area before staying at another hotel at the other end of the beach,that was fantastic, this was decidedly average at best, the main accommodation areas are very shabby,broken tiles patchy paint, newer better blocks are a few minutes away in the grounds.available for a bit more, food was average ,that said I didn't starve for the fortnight, the two a la carte restaurants were pretty dismal.the Italian was open to all at lunch serving small but adequate pizza etc. Evening entertainment was good with a few quality performances.the staff as always in Cuba work there socks off with big smiles , pity the reception have a couple of grumpy staff.the beach is fantastic, safe for all. The main pool bar have a great set of staff , enjoy a lethal Spanish coffee or two as recommended by colleen one of many repeat visitors from Canada! If the main area gets a revamp this place would be so much better

The personnel has demonstrated to be very rude and unprofessional. The food was low quality and only English food. If you go to Cuba you want to experience also the local food. The personnel at the reception was absolutely unfriendly and not able to help anyhow. If you asked them for a simple information, as were to catch a taxi or the timing of the bus in front of the hotel, they would not know. But if you paid them, they were more willing to help you somehow. The quality of the restaurants, in particular the Italian one, was awful. They served us an uncooked pizza and when we kindly ask them if it was possible to have it cooked, they were quite annoyed and instead of putting it in woven they warm it up in the microwave. Indecent. Also, be aware the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and they make it very hard and expensive for you to go out.

went to blau resort for a week of jan 22-29 2016 ..took sunwing,,, a couple and a 7 yr old..paid 2000 all in .changed our money at the airport there... it was 100 of there money for 150 Canadian...never checked the rate at the hotel,,but im sure itt was better than at the airport....got there late..was surprised there was no welcome cocktail..thats ok...we were put in block 4000 facing the generator...the elevator was tiny and old and room was old and rusty especially the bathtub...next day we moved to block 6000 1st floor..which was a lot better,,,so would stay away from block 4000 facing the generator...not sure if I would go back in january as it was hit and miss with wethaer,,we had 3 nice sun days and 3 cloudy days with a bit of rain mixed in...beach was nice....did not like the fact at 7am that all beach chairs were all stacked and locked up with rope..and had to wait for a beach chair attendant to open lock...would of been nice just to grab your chair at all times and place at the beach...but im sure its to get a tip for bringing the chair to your desired spot...food was good...nice stations for food but lineups of course.we only had 3 la carts which only consisted of Cuban and Italian...both were just ok...staff is very friendly...also did the walk around the resort and the plus section did look nice,,modern ,,and read the reviews before ,,and for the ones that got the plus section for 100 Canadian for a week,,you got a great deal..when we tried to get it at the hotel...it was 10 cuc per person and 5 cuc for child per day..so it would of been for us 25 cuc a day for 6 nights..with exchange more than 200 Canadian... overall good value for the money for the resort

We just got back last evening and we miss it all ready. We found the staff to be over the top with love. They appreciate even a wave or a hand shake from any one. Because this was a our third trip there we were always greated with a hug. The weather was not quite to what we were hoping for but the sunny disposition of the staff helped us have fun. Once again the food was taken to another level. Everythingwas tasty and fresh. After your first visit you are given a gift in your room upon return. You are also invited to a returning guest dinner. It is always a good time. The Ladies get a gift that they can appreciate and the Gentlemen are given a gift that a Gentleman may enjoy. It is a special occasion make it one and get dressed up. You will not regret it. One trend I detest is that people will wear the shirts and shorts to an Ala Carte dinner. The staff don't appreciate it though they will never say anything. If you wonder why another table seams to enjoy their dinner a little more the reason could be as simple as following this simple etiquette. Another thing I see all the time is that if you respect the staff they will respect you and go above and beyond to help you. Treat them like crap and they will do it but you may miss out on a little extra you may have gotten from them. Even the smallest smile or a wave to a gardener could get your wife a flower for her hair or fresh coconut to drink from. We gave the maid 10 pesos at the beginning of our stay and thanked her every day for how she made our room look. She always asked how we were and waved with a huge smile for us. Every day we had the towels put into a different sculpture on the bed. We have made many friends with the staff and we look forward to seeing them all next year. We email many of them from home through out the year.
