    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.

        We absolutely loved this resort, our favorite part was the awesome snorkeling right at our beach, we were able to see so many species of fish. Food was good, workers were great, rooms were clean and nice. Staff were always very courteous, appreciating every lil thing they could do for you. The grounds were very well taken of, Was not far from the markets. All in all, a great resort.

        WE arrived around 6.30pm and check in was very speedy, we took the offer to upgrade but in hindsight would possibly no bother again as we don't see any reason too. Room was clean and tidy in block 4-6 coffee maker in room tho we drink a lot so had to ask for extra, No Problems tho'. Main Buffet restaurant was busy most of the time but this did not detract from the service from the staff who were all pleasant and willing to help and not at all tip based as they hadn't had a tip from us at this point, there is a plentiful option of the food at all servings, 3 hot stations Fish Meat and Pasta at Lunch and Dinner with breakfast having slightly different offerings, plus the cold section and then the deserts, always plentiful with a wide enough selection. 2 Pools, one VIP, both with good availability on sunbeds both with poolside bars and an absolutely gorgeous beach with beach bar and sunbeds available, tho I find these not as comfortable as the poolside ones as they have no cushions, towel helps a bit. We would return here as the staff are brilliant, the food is good (alongside any all Inclusive we have been to in the past) and the location is clean tidy and provides a quiet get away. Just remember THIS IS CUBA, and they do NOT have the luxuries we take for granted, however nicer people you could not hope to meet, some holiday makers would do well to remember this. Wi-fi is available and is acceptable for basic access to FB and the internet but do not expect lightning speeds and there are some quirks when logging on which appeared to be weather related. the same cards can be used at both hotel and the airport when returning if needed.

        We are just back from a two holiday at this hotel and whilst it was mostly good, it did have a couple of bad points. First the good, very clean, spacious hotel, well kept grounds and the pools were clean. The staff were lovely, polite and friendly, service was a tad slow sometimes but those times were when it was busy. The food was amazing, all fresh and there was something for everyone. The beach was lovely, nearly always clean, you had to be a bit careful with the rocks as you went in the sea, take beach shoes. Now the bad. The public toilets! Not used to small cubicles with half doors and there was not enough of them! Not good at all. The swimming pool was not very deep, hubby is 6ft tall and had a bit of difficulty in swimming. And the bars kept running out of drinks, not just alcohol but sort drinks too, disappointing for an all inclusive. Would I go back, yes, but I would hope that the toilet situation would be improved! Oh, and you can 'upgrade' and for the extra money you get a deeper swimming pool and more visits to the theme restaurants - not worth it in my opinion.

          I will start with the great, the grounds were beautiful and kept clean, the food was really good for a resort in Cuba, I thought the rooms were nice and roomy, lots of pillows on the bed, the bed was comfortable. I loved the beach, not as rocky as some reviews have mentioned, water was crystal clear, nice sand. Always found a good spot on the beach, never felt like I had to go early in the morning and reserve a spot, which I do not like to do anyways. Loved the pool area, though I never used it much, I go to the Caribbean for the sea, not much of a pool person, but it was nice to sit by it in the early morning sipping my coffee. Service at buffet was hit or miss Now the annoyances, service was not that great, they seemed to favor the guests who greased their palms, I for one will not do that to get special treatment, I will leave a good tip for good service, not to get service, the Cubans never learned the concept of a tip. I could not find anywhere on the resort a calendar of entertainment for the week, I asked the front desk, and found the reply I got quite rude, he said he was reception not the entertainment team, so I found this quite annoying. So all week I had to listen for announcements, some times I missed them and than seen a bunch of people doing yoga, and felt I missed out because I did not hear the announcement even though I was close by good enough resort, would I go back, yes at a good price. Hopefully they will get through the hiccups and train their staff on service, we are all paying the same to be there and should be treated equally.
