It took 6 hours before we got into our room. It was still not ready. No towels provided so that we could go to the beach or pool. Room needed updating. Used the same towels for the whole week. Buffet was over crowded and we had to wait for clean plates on a regular basis. None of the food was...

We were there for a wedding. Rooms were not available until 5pm the day of arrival...okay. Rooms were nice, clean. Never had enough towels. The beds were so hard--maybe sleeping on a box spring??? Not sure--they were low. Beverages were not replaced every day in the mini bar. Lots of mosquitos if you left the sliding door open. Some rooms...

Prior to holiday, I had read the reviews of this resort which were good but I was very disappointed and here are my reasons why. Reception - very slow at check in. We were told that the room was not available until 4 p.m. and when we went back at 4, were told the room was not ready. We did...

I always read reviews with the opinion that they are subjective. We have been to the Caribbean 30 times. To everything from 3 – 5 star resorts. This is hands down the worst one we have ever been to. Most of the staff appears to be trying to do the best they can but this resort is so poorly managed...

I had mostly positive experiences at this resort my first two visits (March 2014 and 2015). I wrote two lengthy reviews here on Trip Advisor for each visit which were full of praise, support and enthusiasm. I requested to book this hotel through my travel agent for the 3rd time in good faith. After my third visit I was completely...

After reading such great reviews on this resort I am disappointed on what we ended up getting our week at the Blau. Beach is awesome! We were in the 16 block so just a short walk to beach. Lounge chairs always available. Lighthouse was where we ate lunch everyday. Staff there were okay, one waitress who worked the night shift...

Maybe it depends on who you book with or what room category you buy but the room I had was nice. Some wear of course. The food was hit and miss but again this is Cuba. They can run out of food, they do the best with what they have. I don't come here for the food. I come for...

The resort needs more staff to keep up with the amount of people! Pros: Beautiful looking resort with great potential. Bbq a la carte was the best restaurant in a quiet area. Cons: No plates at the buffet, dirty buffet, lack of hygiene and cleanliness everywhere. Poor food. Old rooms in need of renovations and in need of new beds...

Rats, crawling ants in the rooms, cold flavorless food, lies from front desk staff, cockroaches, constant Cuban music (if that's what you call music) , long lineups for what they call food, never a manager to be found, the beach was only dragged once in 10 days (lots of broken shells to cut your feet on), short changed when buying...
