    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 am not at all fussy and was disapointed. First time in cuba. No existing ocean view room. Beach small rocky. First day we didnt realise we were at a neighbor hotel part of beach was rudely kicked off our chair by staff of that hotel. All chairs are reserved with towels before 7am. Be an early bird . Over crowded beach. Except 2-3 staff members most made me feel like i was bothering them when ordering anything. Grounds are huge and quite beautiful, but my room was quite far from everything. Dont take block 46,47,48. No beach or pool or anything in view. I was in new room. Very quiet and clean. Food was good especially italien restaurant. Buffet never changed all week. Pool huge and fantastic. Good for family. One day a person pooped on the floor close to main bar, pool, restaurant...instead of picking it up there was a "wet floor" sign placed over it for at least 2 hours before it was cleaned up. Disgusting. Snorkeling is great. Excursions wonderful except 2 hour busride to get there and back...although gave a great view of rural cuban life. Upgrade to vip...you wont regret. If young kids dont bother to upgrade...wont be worth it. I am torn...it was great overall vacation. Would not reccomend to loved ones. This was my first time in cuba. I hear on cuban standards it is great.

            Just back from this resort and it was one of our best experiences in Cuba ever. We're realists and not dreamers. We've travelled all over the Caribbean and in the past few yrs we travel to Cuba 3 times each winter. We have friends that choose to holiday in Barbados, Aruba ,etc. at a cost of $2500.00 per person, we travel to Cuba and book on last minute sites for $700 to $800 per person. We expect a nice clean modern room like a hotel room in Toronto, good food for Cuban standards, warm sunshine, nice beaches and genuine people. The food, selection and condiments at this resort was excellent and exceeded our expectations, making this the best food experience over the 20 previous resorts. This resort has it all, it was expanded a couple yrs ago, we upgraded for $10 a day and stayed in the new section block 37. Some people complained that it was a little far from the lobby, if you follow the main walkway it was a 5 minute walk, if you follow the gravel paths it was a 3 minute walk to the lobby. Oh yeah, the people that complained were the ones that needed the walk, if you know what I mean. The upgrade allowed for new rooms and access to the new pool, private lounge with quality liquor and two extra restaurant bookings, well worth it. The beach is situated on a cove which kept the water temperatures at bathtub levels. You can clearly see from the beach some coral/rock areas under the water and clear sand areas providing access to walk around them, the coral areas allowed for a beautiful display of colourful fish. We brought dinner rolls from the lunch buffet and fed them to the fish, they would eat it from your hands, an excellent way to see the fish without having to snorkel. The resort has lots of foliage, the lines for drinks and buffets were surprisingly short and moved quickly. The salary for the average Cuban is 16 tourist pesos a month valued the same as and brought into circulation to eliminate the American dollar. The tourist pesos is worth 25 times their regular pesos, so we gladly tip and therefore have no problems getting service. Add $50 each for tipping to the low cost of your holiday and you won't have any complaints. I am telling you to avoid reading into any negatives written about this resort and book it. We always stay at different resorts all over Cuba, just because life is short, we will definitely return to this one. The only thing I would add to this resort if I were managing it would be a Grand piano and a talented pianist to the Plus Lounge, it would allow for great entertainment and sing alongs.....

            Having been in Guardalavacca area 4 times already, and at another resort 3 times already, I worried that I would miss that resort. I was pleasantly surprised at my vacation experience at the Blau Costa Verde. We upgraded to the "plus" package and did not regret it at all. We were in block 28 and we're not far from anything at all. The plus pool is beautiful, bar is beautiful and bar staff very understanding. Miguel, Yonandis (Jerry) and Gladise(?) not sure on spelling (lo siento) we're amazing and accommodating. The pool was a stones throw away from the beach. That was important for me, since I love love love the ocean. Yes the sand is rough on the Blau side, but have a relaxing walk to just before Playo Pesquero resort and the sand and water is clear there. For Cuba the food was above my expectations; good variety, lots of it and always palatable. As for the negative reviews, I'm not sure what you are looking for in a vacation, but don't expect everything you get in Canada. We are a fortunate people. Go to Cuba expecting it to be Cuba, not a Canadian resort in Cuba! Respect the people, the culture and the country and I guarantee you will have a great vacation. Your vacation is what you make of it.. Oh and to the senior who makes omelets at the Ranchon buffet, thank you. They were wonderful and I miss them! I will return.... :)) <3
