Reception / Service Timeout check in about 20 minutes but was the second in a row: one person was of record in this task. There are often only two people at the reception, or a person of record to money transfer and other, everything else. I asked 4 times (2 by telephone and in person 2) to receive a drinking glass in the room and change the batteries in the remote control right from the beginning of the journey it took 3 days to receive glasses and cells were not changed. Strangely, the problem I had safe is set in 30 minutes with a technician after a call to reception: to believe that the reception prioritizes requests. The toilet seat was broken on Saturday night and it was repaired on Monday in PM. However I received as compensation from the hotel a bottle of rum, which was appreciated but note together. Requests to fill the fridge through the maid made quickly. Transport to the room by golf cart available for the outward and return unused. Room located in building 46 on the 2nd floor. Buildings of sections 26-28, 36-37 and 46-48 have 3 floors and sections 16 to 19, closer to the pool have two more floors. These are newly built. The building is far from the main buildings: This section is quiet and calm, as requested. View of some trees. Fine cement sidewalks connecting the buildings together. Bedroom with king bed with firm mattresses with bathroom with shower only glass. Large wardrobe with digital safe, umbrella and iron but no drawers to put our clothes. No problem with hot water. Efficient air conditioner with digital display and it is silent. Strong echo heard in the corridors and strong sounds of slamming doors. I heard some neighboring rooms, but it was not a major problem. Main swimming pool with swim-up bar deemed small and children's wading pool. Difficulty finding a place around it after 10am. Some Palapas and palm trees provide shady areas. More pool section with lovely private aquabar but very sunny. Both pools are well maintained. Palapas on it is stated that it is forbidden to reserve chairs: to believe that this law is not applied at all! Canvas chair vinyl digging and quickly becomes uncomfortable for the back. The four-star beach I visited different hotels, this is the most beautiful beach. White sand, little tree cover. Full Palapas in different rows for the choice of more shaded areas or exposed. Presence of rocks and corals in the sea need to move with care: however, the clear water allows you to see where you must walk. An orchestra is occasionally sing some songs but they are not pushy. No vendor on the beach. Beach cleaned daily and chairs collected. Attendant chairs to come bring the number of chairs required and cleaning them. Hard white resin chair becomes uncomfortable over time. Buffet Buffet lunch deemed fine with bar eggs / omelettes, bacon (not crispy enough!), Cereals, oatmeal, cold meats and cheeses and many juices and smoothies already prepared. Repetitive fruit very ripe pineapple crisp white (not mature enough!), Guava, papaya, bananas, honeydew melon, grapefruit. Absence of oranges, lemons and lime. Coffee very bland, like cappuccino prepared in bars. Buffet dinner and evening repetitive but hey: it is essentially the same everywhere: grilled fish, shrimp and meat, pasta bar, salad bar, fruits, some vegetables (peas and corn cane, beets, pickles , cucumber, grated squash ...), hamburger and hot dogs, some stews, rice. No presence of salad leaves, except shredded cabbage. Snack bar available 24 hours when you can order hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, fries appreciated. Restaurants Ai map only had access to two restaurants: Cuban (El Cangrego) and Italian (Il Ponticello). The Cuban restaurant is casual, with a single service (main dish) consisting of net Mahi Mahi with a light garlic sauce to taste. The other two services, either starter and dessert are composed of elements of the buffet (again!): I believe that the à la carte restaurant should be distinguished from the food buffet. Italian restaurant with a much better four services. Tomato cream cheese sprinkled covered: strange. Great beef dish with banana chips and different vegetables buffet (broccoli). Very good service and the waitresses were dynamic, smiling. Hotel activities I have not used the services of the page to pedalo, sailing, kayaking but they are free. Beach volleyball often offered popular. Activities around the main pool also available but I was not often around it. Evening activities: I have participated as a show and it was fun. Bars beach bar ran daily glass plastic and posted a sign: sorry, no cups: I had to recycle my plastic cup and envied people who have made their thermos! I did not like the drinks and often they were very sweet and often adaptations: Mojito with Seven-up and mint leaf, Gin tonic without tonic rather flat seven-up, Bananarama with banana liqueur rather than mashed potatoes, crushed ice and margarita without salt-free etc.. Even the bars of the main buildings sometimes lacked elements to prepare cocktails (eg tomato juice for bloody cesar). Similarly, there has been one or two days during a shortage of glasses, which brought the servers to serve beer in a glass of wine or a drink in a glass of cognac, which was fun! The beer was good, the white and red wine drinkable but nothing more. Service bartenders selective: they are insistent people or giving tips before others: a place where queuing for drinks could solve this frustration.

Positive :

Good value for money compared to other four star popular in other countries. Quiet comfortable room with air conditioning efficient Buffet repetitive but good quality food Beautiful beach with lots of Palapas Good Italian restaurant in the map section with more attractive private pool and swim-

Negative :

Lack of plastic cups at the beach bar Drinks too sweet and not very good. Service slow main reception small pool bartenders prioritizing people pushy or giving tips

Excellent choice eventually. Overall, we are very pleased to have chosen this hotel. I think it is a true 4 stars for Cuba.

Positive :

The site was clean, the room also. Our fear: would we have water and if so, would it be hot with good pressure? Well yes, a good stream of water, it was warm and we have always had! Public toilets (Hotel) were always clean, I have rarely seen it in Cuba. The staff was comely, welcoming, warm. They informed whether it was good and if everything suited us. I have rarely seen that too. The food was varied. This is our 5th time in Cuba and it was where we most enjoyed the food.

Negative :

The only negative comment is not directly connected to the hotel makes. It is the sea that has a lot of rocks. Have known, I would have gone elsewhere or at the very least, I would have brought my water shoes. It took it completely because it was very unpleasant to go into the sea, more stones than sand unfortunately. And not just at the entrance, but a good distance, really had to watch where your feet because you could get hurt is put.

We went from 2 to 9 February 2014. The site is OK but no more since they expanded the site. Now there are two classes of clients. Regular customers and VIP customers. If you want to be a VIP customer, you must pay an extra $ 10 per day per person. This gives you access to the pool and bar for VIP only, a la carte dinner again, the fridge in the room is filled every day, in room coffee maker st a late check out of the room on the day of departure. If you are a regular customer, there is more filling the refrigerator all day in the room or coffee. In addition, if you try to get anything at all in the room, for example coffee, he insists to tell you for that, you have to be VIP. They no longer bank so the exchange is at the counter of the hotel. The exchange rate is 15 percent. Request a receipt because it does not return immediately and can not easily given you the correct amount. In addition it was not possible to 1 peso, the minimum was 3 peso.Donc it is expensive when you want to give a little tip.Nous were very disappointed this year. This was our 3 rd years this place.

Positive :

Site very clean. Food very bonne.Assez chair at the beach. Great place to snorkel,

Negative :

Increase occupancy so many more people but they have not increased the number of restaurants.Ils have not increased the number of staff, which results in a lack of service at the buffet. If you do not arrive to the opening hour of meals, you have more space or you need to sit at a table sale.Manque service 24hours restaurant also very long (1 hour) receive the flat commander.Sur the beach, there is enough room but cordé.Apporter a coffee cup because they failed to drink at the beach several times during the year semaine.Cette many people done not sting sand fleas and bed. I had never quilted, unfeather you see my legs. And finally, people who are VIP and have a gold bracelet, do not hesitate to tell you that are VIP and believe that everything is permitted.

Important my assessment applies only to the Blau Costa Verde MORE section, the other section of the hotel is in my humble opinion a 3 star. Opting for the PLUS section makes all the difference

Positive :

Friendly staff everywhere on the site. Representative Transat offers good customer service. Everything is new, it is very propre.Les rooms are large and spacious, I like firmer beds so ok for me. Good closet space for one person may not be enough for 2. Room very large bathroom, no bath but shower good size. Never missed towels. The VIP Lounge has done absolutely. international drinks that are not found in the other section. Special mention to Yuner makes excellent Bloody Mary. The wine is drinkable on the site :-)) best in a la carte restaurant wine. Eating à la carte: (3 are exclusive to Blau General PLUS.En quite well J ate a pork fillet with great fruit Gourmet Buffet at Ranchon beach, exclusive pool small but good and really beautiful!.. large, quiet too. Beach cleaned every morning. lot of security on the site and the beach. pleasant massage on the beach. Shows good especially the Water and the quartet of operetta (must love the genre though) Check out fast. Excursion Cuba Life try especially if you have toured the traditional excursions like catamaran, dolphin, visit cigar manufacturing .... stay very relaxing. Good choice but only Blau MORE

Negative :

Any other section of the hotel! Buffet too small to accommodate two sections. Fresh fruit every day, but naturally very limited in quantity: pineapple, guava, banana, grapefruit, honeydew melon. You can have lunch without problem anyway eggs, pancakes, toast, fruit, honey, yogurt, juice not too diluted. Lunch and dinner harder to find, yes, but not pasta with vegetables and meat to add to the sauce. Queue waiting to be endless for the various stations. No lettuce. A la carte restaurant for lobster, worst service I have had in Cuba, difficulty having wine, tiny lobster overcooked. Lobster happens when you eat soup, oops ... Beach in the afternoon very average: lots of rocks and broken shells make shoes of water but the snorkeling is excellent. Point that my most disgusted, prostitution and has more than tolerated by the hotel. Can be easily seen especially al aqua pool bar of old. section and especially close to the family area!!

Are all, beautiful beaches beautiful time people are nice. Many animated day and night games on the beach, the beach bar is animated. The premises are clean at all times.

Positive :

The staff is really welcoming and always there when needed. The beach is beautiful but a little too small rock anyway. The rooms are nice and clean I was in the non-renovated part and frankly I have nothing negative to say. Evening there for all the world of disco music show magician. Great week and especially nice and warm.

Negative :

My only negative comment is the food to have been to Cuba many times I've never had a complaint. Buffets of the hotel and the beach offers the same choice of dishes that get a little monotonous because the choice is rather limited I ate chicken every week or so. Too much oil on everything I've been sick the day before I left I had to cancel a trip. I am told that there were ants in the cereal in the morning then open your eyes. It would be nice if everyone picked up their plastic cups instead of left on the beach!
