Western Cuba Hotels

Blau Varadero Hotel


  • Very much family-oriented with a great menu of activities
  • 24-hour snack bar at the beach


  • Waits for elevators can be tedious, especially with small children
  • Half the rooms face the road and the bay
  • Bit of a walk from rooms to the beach

Fodor's Review

This towering, sloping structure has the boldest architecture in Varadero and an excellent reputation as a family-oriented resort. Inside the peninsula's highest building there's an impressive, 100-foot high atrium, draped with ivy that cascades down to a contemporary lobby. Sports facilities are abundant, with a huge quatrefoil-shape pool, tennis and basketball courts, and water-sports facilities. A walkway passes through a narrow band of trees to the wide beach. The brightly colored, contemporary rooms have two twins or a king-size bed. Suites have a separate living room and two terraces. The first child, age 2 to 12, stays free. Be sure to book a room facing the ocean rather than the road.
