Dream Vacation at Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Cuba

I’ve made many trips to Cuba these past few years, and a number of them have been in the Holguin area. There were two hotels on my hit list in this region, and the Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin was one of them.

Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Location

The Playa Costa Verde resort (formerly the Blau Costa Verde) is located on the long white sand beaches of Playa Pesquera in the Holguin and Guardalavaca region. Walk the length of the beach from the hotel, and you’ll find yourself at their neighbouring property the Playa Pesquero resort.

This hotel is formally known as the Blau Costa Verde Holguin. It is now under the same management as the neighbouring property the Playa Pesquero resort, and not much has changed from an infrastructure/services offering.

Playa Costa Verde Holguin King Room (Courtyard View)

My room was located in a new complex which was recently added to the resort. The large villa buildings house these rooms which were sold as Plus Rooms. There appear to be different rates depending on if your room is located in the newly renovated buildings or the older ones.

Table and chairs with wine and food at Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Cuba

I think the only difference between my room and a standard is that there are king bedrooms available in the plus rooms, and they are located in the newer buildings. The standard rooms often have two twin or 2 queen beds.

We were also given wine in our room but were unable to get a corkscrew from the staff to open it. I found my bed and both pillows were a bit hard, but otherwise, I had everything I needed in my suite. At the time, I was even able to connect to the wifi in my room.

Amenities included in the room were:

• Hair dryer
• Satellite television
• Iron & Ironing board
• Balcony
• Coffeemaker
• 1 King or 2 Doubles
• Mini-bar
• 220-volt outlet
• Minimum Adults 1
• Minimum Occupancy 1
• Telephone
• Safety deposit box

Beach area at Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Cuba

The Playa Costa Verde Beach

There are many walkways throughout the resort which lead along the water to the beach. This is great for runners and walkers who like pathed surfaces vs the sand. I took walks along these paths around the resort each morning before breakfast.

The beach is long and also great for walking. If you walk the length of the property, it eventually connects to the Playa Pesquero resort.

Pool at Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Cuba

Hotel Playa Costa Verde Holguin Pools

There is a large freshwater pool which runs through the centre of the resort and lounge chairs our scattered throughout. What I didn’t like about the pool was the lack of shade.

Playa Costa Verde Holguin Bars

There are bars located by the pool, beach and in the Lobby. The resort has a nightclub and a cigar lounge as well.

I was in Cuba on business, so I missed the shows, but they ran in the theatre each night. I liked that the location of the theatre was not near the room buildings which meant it did not disturb me when I had an early night.

The resort had a sprawling freshwater pool that ran in the centre of it between the buildings.
