Blau Marina Palace

Resort in Varadero

The last stop on the peninsula before Florida and looking a lot like it, Blau Marina follows the modern Varadero resort trend, ie spread-out low-rise units, lush spacious grounds and exemplary service. There’s an imitation lighthouse with fine views over the beach and marina, acres of swimming pools and a fine adjacent beach.

For added luxury (and irony) you can plump for the 'royal' upgrade on the Planta Real part of the complex on a small adjoining island, Cayo Libertad, connected by a bridge where butlers cater for your every need. Ah….socialismo!
