We stayed here in June 2019 with Thomas Cook,the food i thought was good and the serving staff really nice,we had a room on floor 3 and directly under our room they were refurbishing furniture and re-spraying the furniture with varnish which after 2 days of constantly breathing it in day and night I started to feel really ill,I have psoriasis and it flared up all over my body so that was the end of my sunbathing and had terrible diarrhea and felt high on the fumes,(varnish contains ethanol,which can damage your lungs)after 4 days of asking to be moved we eventually got a room on the 5th floor where we could still smell the varnish but not so strong,because we had booked with Thomas Cook by the time we got home the airline had gone bust so no way of raising a grevience with them, so I emailed the blau varadero and never got any form of apology,and after several emails they finally replied,with what I thought was a tough luck response and the offer of a room upgrade next time we stay there. Well I would never stay at your hotel again,you ruined our holiday,made me ill,and didn't have the decency to apologise for poisoning us,we saved for over a year to visit cuba and would probably not visit again.

Lovely location and great facilities within the hotel and grounds. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beach was a very short walk away and easy to swim in. Lots of room in the restaurants and did not need to book or queue. Definitely glad that we chose this hotel.

My wife and I travel last December to Varadero for Christmas holidays and part of the great trip as usual we took the chance to spend 4 days at Blau Varadero a hotel for adult tourism, our experience was great very nice hotel and beautiful beach. The weather trick us a bit but thats the tropics and even though Cuba always have more for you to see and do. The people at the hotel was more than accommodating and explain any of our requests and questions. Clean room, great view nice food what else you need to come back to Canada and start working full of energy and happiness. We are thinking and planing already to go back this year if COVID allow us to do it as soon as possible because we can be wrong going back to paradise.

Virgin call this a luxury hotel. It is NOT. It is shabby, with terribly damaged, dirty and basic rooms. The local rep was completely useless and uninterested in sorting any problems. Complaining to Virgin whilst there and when we got home got a stonewall of "very sorry but we're not going to do anything about it". Last Virgin holiday I ever take - just appalling. Compared to the brochure description and images, it's borderline misrepresentation in my opinion... you have been warned!
