    I think the hotel is as wheelchair accommodating as most Cuban resorts. It's not to Canadian standards. It helps that they have elevators going to every floor. There is a boardwalk to the beach and beach bar, but then there are a couple of steps to the beach - so I'm not sure if that would work out for you?


    It's better than the hotels with the villas because the villas are walk-up only so you'd have to request a ground floor room.


    Thanks for the compliments! Our ceremony was at 3pm which is usual for that time of year. I think the sun began to set around 5 so that was the perfect amount of time.


    The beach bar isn't anything fancy - it's made of wood and has screens that go down to cut down the drafts if needed. There's a bar, some tables and chairs, and a small dance floor. It's not fancy but there's no way to not have fun there. The guys working the bar are awesome. I don't really have any detailed pictures but here's one at night. During the day they serve hamburgers and fast food here as well.

      Actually according to reviews here: http://www.holidaych...-hid_77161.html

      The hotel is fully handicapped accessible.


      I wasn't paying much attention to that since we didn't have the need for our group.

        Hi I am also trying to book the blau for my wedding january 2012...but have been unable to get ahold of anyone from the resort to see if the dates we want are available. we really want this resort as all the reviews are amazing. Does anyone know of who to contact? or how to contact them? I had found a couple of emails but none of them are working they all come back undeliverable. Is there an email that works now? or a phone number to call? if anyone knows anything please let me know as I have to book soon.

          The resort changed their email address last December - you should try sales@blauvaradero.tur.cu!

            Can you let me know how the weather and everything is after? I'm planning my wedding for November, 2013. I know far away but I would love your input on how the weather and everything is. Thanks

              I'm not sure what you mean by "everything is after"? The weather was about 24C when we were there - it wasn't too hot but warm enough to have beach days and swim.  The water was wonderful.

              November might be a bit warmer than that - just look up Varadero weather history on google and you should get some information.

                      We are getting married in Iberostar, Varadero over Christmas.

                      We are wondering if anybody is taking there own photographer and would consider sharing ours?

                      If anybody is interested please PM us.
