    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.

        My husband and I traveled with another couple and this resort was quite average. It was clean and you can see the hard work they put in to keep the grounds fresh and clean of debris. The pool was cool and refreshing and very clean. One big pool on the regular side of the resort along with a kiddie pool and than another quiet adults pool on the Plus Side. The beach was not very far from the main pool area. The water was crystal clear and you are able to see almost 7 different shades of blue from the ocean-breathtaking and most amazing waters I have seen. The sand was white and smooth. The biggest complaint I would say we had was that there were not nearly enough beach/pool chairs at all throughout our stay. If you were not at the beach by approx 6 am, you will not get any chairs until at least mid afternoon. Many people had to set up camp on their towels in the sand, including many seniors. There were actual chair fights about 4 different times that we saw on the beach. Food was average, but the ala carts we found were much better than our stay in Veradero. You get 2 ala carts included on the regular side, Italian and Cuban and 4 ala carts included with the Plus. Elevators to the fourth floor were broken most of the time and there were no internet cards available for approx 4 days. There were 6 bars and the lobby bar and the bar by the main pool area were always very busy, but service and drinks were great. This time I enjoyed the lime slush with rum of course. Many different varieties of drinks, coffees and slushies to chose from. There is a market 10 minutes up the road where you guy buy all your souveniers for super cheap. We went to one set up where the man sold 10 items for 5 cuc's (pesos). Free engraving on pencils, bracelets, etc. We chose to do the tour of Holguin where we took the bus from our area of Playa Pesquero to Holguin, had a city tour on our bus while we were waiting and than took a ride through the village on a 'steam train' that was broken, so we took the diesel train. Very nice ride and views of their living cultures. The bus met us up about 25 minutes up the road and took us to the Holy Cross. The Pope visited this area a few years ago. It is made of 450 stairs and a cross at the top, in which has a panoramic view of Holguin. Breathtaking. Than, we had an hour to spare downtown Holguin to shop or visit their stores. Cuban lunch was served at one of their restaurants and the food was okay, nothing too spectacular , but really showed their Cuban culture more than what they had to offer at the hotel's buffet.

        This was my third time going to Cuba. The resort was clean and food was pretty good for Cuba. The snorkelling at the beach was amazing! The biggest downside to this resort is the huge beach chair shortage. Our first morning at the resort we were up and at the beach by 8:30am and every single beach chair was reserved. You have to literally be at the beach by 6:00am to reserve a chair otherwise you're laying on your beach towel all day. People are not afraid to steal reserved beach chairs either, as we experienced it ourselves after being away from our chairs for only 30 minutes. If you don't mind being up at 6:00am while on vacation, or if you don't mind laying on your beach towel then I guess this resort would be decent. I have been to all inclusive resorts many times and this is the first time I have been to a resort that does not have enough beach chairs. I don't know if the shortage is due to the fact that they didn't purchase enough beach chairs when adding the plus section, but I would not visit this resort again because of this problem.

            We travel to this hotel more than any other. Last year, twice, (April and November) and we are booked for a week in March. We started staying in the Plus Section which I highly recommend. We feel it is well worth the upgrade price. It's worth it just to be able to go to the VIP Bar and have bottle beer. We love the beach, and the food is great especially the pizza @ lunch time at the Italian. A couple of improvements that could be had - upgrades to the washrooms by the 24 hr bar & Italian Restaurant. They really are horrible. No toilet tissue, no hand towels or hand dryers - just not nice at all. And, the Plus Section really needs better lighting along the walkways. We come back to the Blau because there are a lot of things that we really love, especially the staff. The staff at the Blau really need to be praised, they go above and beyond and work very hard So, we wish to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to Soneli, Mindry, Rosa, Yunier, Eduardo, Raul, Kenia, Idania, Yalin, Jose, Serge, and Abel. You, my family, are the reason we keep coming back. We will be seeing you in a few weeks. Sending many kisses. I highly recommend booking with Maritime Travel, Park Lane Mall Halifax -- M Dube, Travel Agent Extraordinaire.

            My family and I have been going to Blau for the last 6yrs. We love it and would not trade it for any other resort. We have stayed on both sides the plus and the older side. Resort is very clean and staff is amazing. We meet some staff on our first visit and have kept in touch with them since. We can not wait to return again this spring. Food is excellent. Plenty to choose from. I would definetely recommend this resort. Yes you are going to read mixed reviews about it, but honestly for us, as long as our beds are made we don't care. Our time is spent on the beach and outside. So if you are not a picky person this resort is definetely for you. Enjoy your stay, I can not wait for our again:)

            We are travel Newbies and Blau Costa Verde PLUS was our first stay at an all-inclusive Caribbean resort. It exceeded our expectations - we had really great time !! The food was excellent (especially the Italian Restaurant), the staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities were top notch. Towel Art, snorkelling , catamaran rides, swim up bar, VIP Bar, nightly entertainment - all first time experiences for us (but hopefully not the last). The only suggestion would be to bring your own Keurig pods & travel coffee pot for the room - if you're a coffee addict the best coffee is at the 24 hour snack bar and there's often a line up of caffeine addicted tourists in the early morning - sometimes filling up giant travel mugs which makes it difficult for the staff to keep ahead. We plan to return.
