Welcome to the Carribbean!
a Beautiful view, plus there was a beach bar, again with cocktails.a very unstressful place, take a book!
Well, after the noise and heat of Havana and the endless bus journey,(it was only two hours but felt longer), we couldnt believe it when we got to the Blau
it was really quiet,everyone was on the beach or in the pool.
i guess the place lacked atmosphere but then the fact it wasn't noisy was great.
We lounged on the beach,swam in the sea, lounged by the pool and swam in the pool, that was pretty much it for a week!(other than the dolphin thing).
The sea was amazing,very warm, blue and clear, the bottom was sandy and it was very shallow.
Other than the little island off Thailand and Cancun probably the best i have seen on my travels.(The South Pacific is gorgeous but full of coral which is great to look at but difficult to swim on)!
All incl food gets a bit tiring but at least you can pick and choose at the buffets.
the al la carte was ok, the string quartet were the best bit,but they tend to overcook their meat,(like the UK a few years ago)
The Drinks were fantatstic, wine, spirits and beer. esp the rums!
clo having her free scuba try out. a fast learner, just got to try to convince her to try it out in the red sea!
All in all it was a very relaxing way to finish the trip. would have been nice if there had been a town to visit but there isn't much to see out there other than where you stay, most people take a trip to havana but we had already done that.
would have liked to see more of cuba but its a big island!
Its funny, the Americans have the big embargo thing, and yet if at least they were allowed to come here on holiday it would probably show the Cubans kinda the other side of the fence.
If its happens though they have to keep starbucks and mcdonalds out, just have the tourists and the money they bring.
Home next Boo!!!!!!!!!!!
