Blau Varadero

Resort in Varadero

Suspend your judgment on Varadero’s tallest and most architecturally unsubtle resort. Trying hard to imitate an Aztec pyramid from the outside (why?), the interior is nothing short of spectacular; a 14-story enclosed courtyard embellished by hundreds of hanging plants, some falling for over 80m. Huge rooms are surgically clean and the higher ones have the best views in Varadero.

Downstairs, you’re in resort land, so expect loquacious poolside entertainers, beer in plastic cups and iffy Michael Jackson theme nights.
