This was our forth visit to Cuba and probably our favourite. This resort is small and beautiful. It is currently under renovation but construction won't impact your vacation. Really good food (especially for Cuba) Clean rooms. Excellent staff who all want to ensure you are having a good time. We travelled as a family with four kids (two teenagers and two preteens) and we really enjoyed ourselves. This is Cuba so as long as you come prepared you will do well at this resort. Bring your own pillow. Beds are firm but fine. I'm a terrible sleeper and had no issues. At night and early morning there are mosquitos, but honestly, just use a good bug spray with deet and you will be fine. Bring your own soaps and shampoo (this isn't a five star resort) and you should be golden. There is water brought to your room if you just ask. No beer in the room fridge but we brought our own bubbas and the beer garden is open 24 hour. Bar is only too happy to fill your cups with ice and whatever beverage you desire. We tipped our maid and servers well and they were happy to help us anytime. Buffet was good. Italian was amazing. Japanese was also wonderful. Wifi is available for $1.50/hour in the lobby and has a surprisingly good signal. Overall our expectations were far exceeded at this resort. Lovely people. Good food. Stunning beach. Truly easy to reccommend. Remember that a vacation is what you make of it.
I visited this hotel once, seven years ago and again last week. What a difference! The hotel was redesigned and renovated. I cannot remember its previous rating, but this time I would not hesitate to give it four stars. The room was big and comfortable, clean and well furnished. The maid knocked on the door upon my arrival and introduced herself; often asking me later if I needed anything. Everywhere else polite and attentive services - front desk, bars, restaurants (not exactly a standard at other places in Cuba). Good variety and quality of foods at the main restaurant; they will grill chicken, pork or beef, cook fish or shrimps or prepare pasta dishes at your request.My one complaint would be the guy carrying out activities at the pool. There would usually be two or three people standing 6 or 8 feet away from him, interested in these activities; but the guy felt that speaking to them using microphone and high volume on a powerful audio equipment was necessary, Hey, buddy - there are people at the resort that came to Cuba to relax and enjoy the quiet. You don't need amplifier at all; those people listening to you, are standing 6 feet away; nobody else needs to here the blasts from the HiFi speakers. That noise is going on every day midday for three or four hours. Enough already!
This resort has real potential to be great but at the moment I'd say that it is a true 3 star resort...just basic with no bells or whistles. A lot of the resort is under construction so be aware of that. Rooms that are said to have been renovated seem old and outdated. My room (9306) was very musty smelling and the AC was not very cold. I did however have a nice view of the ocean. You will only get that from the third floor in this building as there are trees in front of balconies. The room was always cleaned well but did not receive water daily. The staff are friendly and helpful especially at the front desk and in the buffet restaurant. The beach is beautiful but there are lots of rocks at the water line. The beach at Memories Caribe, beside Playa Coco, is much nicer with no rocks at all. There are a lot of loungers and good shade on the beach. Beach grill served chicken, pork and potatoes daily. Beach bar was okay...not a huge selection of drinks (I.e., no orange juice or pineapple juice) but the music is very loud and annoying at times. It would be nice to have some quiet there once in a while. The buffet restaurant was only okay. A lot of the same food every single day. You will always be able to find something to eat though and won't go hungry. Omelettes, pasta and fresh cooked fish were good. It is pretty quiet at night so if you are looking to party this is not the place for you. There is no disco just a small piano/lobby bar. There were a few dance shows but the actual theatre is under construction right now. Pools were kept very clean and the grounds are nice. There is also a nice beer garden and an ice cream parlour on the premises. This hotel had a lot of children at it as well. If you are looking for a for a budget vacation go here but if you want more, spend the extra money for a 4 or 5 star. If you go, bring bug spray and water shoes.
This was our second trip to playa and once again the people that work there made our trip! The room was clean, food was pretty good, the beach was amazing but it was definitely a couple of people that work there that made our trip memorable once again!! Rico was great, he made everyone in our family feel welcome and because of him we had an awesome time! Can't wait to see him again!! As always Jorge was tremendous!!
Was from 24.06-01.07.Positive things:-Very friendly reception and sign in.-Spacious and clean room with flat tv-beach towels in the room upon arrival, bottle of water was given to me every day.-Good toilet and shower ( old, but working), enough towels, soap, shampoo and body wash provided, enough toilet paper-Good and quiet a/c- Pool entertanment is time limited and not annoying or noisy- Lobby bar is good-Drinks are not watered down, like in many resorts.- Resort territory is kept clean.- Beach is besutiful, beach staff is supportive.- Beach bar is good and never crowded.- Hallways, stairs in biuldings are kept clean.Negative things:- For those, who like there is almost no evening shows, as Theatre is under constraction.-There is an ongoing building constraction close to the beach, but not very noisy. -when you enter the water be aware of flat stony ground, covered by waterplans.- pool bar drink's quality has to be improved.- except for beside poolbar, could not find any faucets when to rinse feet from send after the beach- Toilet close to buffet and Tokyo restaurant need general pipe cleaning or replacement. Workers clean it well, decorate with flowers, even use aromatic sticks, but it does not solve bigger pipe problem-For those, who like a big choice of food the buffet's choice will be dis- appointing. Plus almost no dressings, except for mustard, ketchup, relish. Later they added vinegar and seasoned vegetable oil, which were often absent. Same type of food every day with little variations.-Bank and variety store might be closed at any moment. Bank does not have business hours on the window. But reception desk can change money.Additionaly ( not pros, not cons)):Late check out for those, who wants is 10 CUC per hour.
