Relaxing, enjoyable week
This was our second time to Blau Varadero, last time was a year ago. The check in was very quick and efficient, the room was clean and spacious, we purchased the upgrade to ocean view which was fabulous. Always had hot water, great water pressure, tub, shower with 2 shower heads. The staff are just amazing and hardworking. The beach is one of the best we've ever visited, and we've been to, and we've been to many. No seaweed, just a few pebbles and small sea shells on edge of water, perfect for long walks in either direction. Always felt very safe, no one hassled or harassed anyone on the beach. This is the number one reason for returning to Varadero. There are shortages, worsened at the moment. No eggs two days, no problem for us and everyone was kind and understanding, there were lots of other things, like ham, cheese, croissants, and other breads, lots of papaya, guava, pineapple. There was even chicken and vegetable, always sweet potatoes, sausages, even liver in gravy. Anyone going to Cuba will have read about these shortages and should make their decision with no expectations. Lunch and dinner, had lots of braised meats, salads, tomatoes, cucumbers etc Small selection of desserts, home style squares and cookies. Some food is over cooked, the grilled beef is very chewy and they don't have a lot of spices, but always found choices we liked. And their ice cream is delicious. Also, grilled hamburgers, chicken and fish, by the pool. Next time we will bring our own oil & vinegar for salad. Also, no ketchup, mayo or mustard if it's your thing, we don't use it. The drinks we had were good. Pina coladas were the best at the piano bar. One day there was no coke, also not a problem for us. Any tips are so greatly appreciated by the staff. We tipped one us$ when we were served our drinks, and in the morning at the beach for beach chair setup.And $5 Canadian daily for room cleaning lady. We did not buy any pesos, as we didn't buy anything there, and they accept US$, just have the correct amount. There is a hop on hop off bus that takes you to Varadero. We took some used, good condition T-shirts and other clothing, bandaids, nail polish and hair elastic and asked one of the servers if she could use it. She was thrilled, and said they will accept anything and would share with the people in her village. Also take any meds you think you might need, they have shortages in the pharmacies too. We are already planning our next visit next year.

Loved Sol Caribe Beach Varadero!
We had a great time at SOL Caribe Beach Varadero on March Break 2024. Overall we were happy with everything. It took a few days to find the food we liked but we eventually were able to. There was a ton of food selection but it wasn't very good! We finally learned that waiting for fresh cooked omelettes, pasta, chicken, or anything else you could see them make was decent! We didn't experience many shortages until our last day. They ran out of vodka at all the beach bars, no eggs, pasta, or cheese - but that was just 1 day for us. All the other days we had no issue. We also didn't think about the A La cartes until our 4th night and it was DELICIOUS! So thankfully we could get in to 3 different a la cartes for our last 3 nights! The beach was BEAUTIFUL. We went down to save chairs around 7:30 am to get front row chairs that was close to the beach bar boardwalk. No issues. Our last 2 days we sat in chairs by the other boardwalk. It was much quieter over there and tons of free chairs - didn't even go down to save any early on. This spot was just further from the bar but we didn't mind as we only stayed at the beach until 1 most days. The sand is SO soft and the entire beach is just so clean and wonderful. They always had music on the beach. We didn't use the catamarans or paddle boats this time. Entertainment on the beach was fun - aquafit and salsa dancing. People were always playing volleyball too. There was security in the section that is close to the beach bar area. The pool was great. Never felt packed. All the bartenders (beach and pool bar) were amazing. The kids loved when the beach bar staff rang the bell if they tipped. Pool always had entertainment going on and music. Fun atmosphere. There is a smaller “deeper” pool that was very quiet and away from most people. We tipped in American dollars because they don't like having the coins. Everyone was very friendly except for the front desk staff. A lot of the staff could speak some sort of little English - except the front desk staff which was interesting! I feel they should be able to speak English for if we need help with anything! It was very clean and everyone worked very hard at the resort! We had a wonderful time and definitely would go back again!!
