Memories Caribe Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort was an EXCELLENT price, we got it on a sell off sale for basically nothing (the cheapest vacation we've ever taken) it was under 1500$ for the two of us. I think this is why there was SO many families here. it seemed like there was young families with young children everywhere which we don't mind at all but some people do. It was a nice vacation to get away and relax as the beach is beautiful-but if you're looking for adventure.. this isn't the place. we left the resort 4 times (on the low side for us) but the only thing you can really do is take the bus down to Pilar beach (which is BEAUTIFUL and WORTH IT) and has amazing seafood at the restaurant... or take the bus to a very small market that you're forced to stay at for a couple hours as per the bus schedule.We also paid quite a bit of money (since there are no other options) to do a speed boat tour. The speed boat tour was worth it as it got us off the resort and we were able to snorkel in some pretty cool places where we saw TONES of fish, including a barracuda ! It just sucks it had to be so expensive as we are thrifty travellers. but with the hotel being so cheap, we were willing to pay for it. The hotel staff were so friendly, the rooms are dated but very clean. We had no problem with cleanliness. The food was great but we also are NOT very picky as we know they do their best with what they have. If you're expecting a 5 star meal, dont go to cuba. They give you what they can and do the best they can. I did miss eating a salad as there was barely any fresh vegetables.. but again, don't expect luxury when they dont have it themselves. They give you the BEST of what they DO have.This is great for a thrifty traveller looking for a great deal. beautiful pool, beautifull beach. just don't go here if you aren't content staying on the resort for most of your trip. (we struggled a little bit with this by the end we were bored.)But thats just because we dont know how to just sit and relax :P

We are scheduled to fly into Cayo Coco on November 6, 2017 staying at Memories Caribe. Does anyone know if Memories Caribe is open or if flights are going into Cayo Coco in November? Very hard to get anything from travel agen.
This will be a slightly abbreviated review as my vacation was also abbreviated. None the less I have nothing but good things to say about the resort and staff. This was our 11th time at Caribe and we were to be there from September 2-16. However Irma had other plans and on the 7th we were bussed to Varadero where we thought/hoped we might be able to spend the rest of our 2 week vacation. However on the 9th we were evacuated home and managed to make it on to the last plane out before they closed the Varadero airport. Many thanks to our Sunwing rep who did the best he could with the very limited and delayed information he seemed to be getting from his superiors. He along with the other resorts Sunwing reps accompanied the 18 bus, police escorted, convoy to Varadero to make sure all guests were off the cayos. Once in Varadero he was also available at that resort to answer our questions and then make sure we made to the airport for evacuation. I have to say that the airport in Varadero was a zoo and not all the people there were able to make it on to a plane and had to be bussed to Havana after the airport closed. We were very grateful to make it home safe and sound although sad to miss over half our planned vacation. That being said our few days at Caribe were some of the best we’ve ever had. We were a full bus arriving from the airport but as soon as we got off the bus at the resort someone called my name as we were diamond club and we were checked in quickly. We always book an al fresco suite and got one in one of the blocks I had earlier requested by email. Everything in the suite was comfortable and clean and worked great including the the a/c and hot water. We never had any trouble getting a front row palapa in the diamond club section and the waiter service there was great. Not only were drinks delivered to our loungers but also pizza this time around. After a day at the beach we always head to last call at the swim up bar in the pool where the service was always prompt and with a smile. Same goes at the 24 hour snack bar and the lobby bar. Having been so many times we have made a few friends and all we need to do is sit down and our favourite drinks are brought to us. The buffet was pretty much the same as usual. Maybe slightly better food and the a/c seemed to work a bit better there than other times as well. We are very sad to see some of the damage that Irma has done to the resort but we know that in time if will be even better than ever and look forward to our 12th visit sometime soon! We must mention a few staff in particular who always make us feel like we are in our second home. Eduardo from the lobby bar and Armando and David from the snack bar, you guys are the best!!! A special thank you to Ernesto for taking the time to speak with us on a couple of occasions this trip. As we were getting on the bus to Varadero he showed up in his casual clothes ready to get to work to prepare the resort as best as possible for Irma and even though everyone was stressed he came over to say good bye. We wish him and all of his staff and our friends all the best in getting the resort back up and running. And we are thankful you all made it through safely. See you soon.
This resort is close to the airport which is a huge bonus. We were greeted and checked in very quickly and easily. We paid for diamond club and Yanelis was absolutely amazing!! Our first room was really not up to par, but she quickly got us another room which was amazing! Lake view with a huge wrap around balcony and right in between the beach and the pool. Wendy and Dwayne at the beach bar are fantastic, they're so personable and genuinely sweet. David at the snack bar and Elvis who works the a la carte dinners are great guys who work so hard and always have a smile on their face. The list goes on for people who made our trip so special. Nightly entertainment was always a riot! Personally, I didn't find the Mosquitos too bad, and they usually love me. I found our mosquitos in Ontario much worse this summer. It was my boyfriends birthday over half way into our weeks stay, and every single staff member we met throughout remembered. My boyfriend revived a bottle of champagne and we had beautiful decorations at our dinner reservation with a big cake made just for him, adorable. It was a fairly quiet resort being low season and it was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate a 40th birthday. Hoping to return for my own birthday this February. Love this place!!
