Our Opinion

The Memories has a distinct Cuban flair and an amazing white sand beach. The resort offers lots of activities both pool side and in the ocean, making it great for those who like to keep active. It is rated 4 star but the facilities and amenities here vary quite a bit. The beach and activities are outstanding but the rooms and food we would say are just average. The lobby bar servers great cappuccinos for that morning boost! The price at this resort is often very attractive and for that reason it has become a popular spot for travelers. If the price is right, the Memories Paraiso Azul is a great option, but go with an open mind and understanding that maybe not everything here will live up to 4 star standards.

If you are looking for a nicer resort and budget is not as much of an issue, check out the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, located just down the beach.

The Memories Paraiso Azul Beach Resort is nestled along a celebrated stretch of sandy beach fanned by pristine turquoise waters. Imprints of Spanish colonial style and design can be found at this beautiful vacation hideaway. From its stained glass windows to its classic thatched roofs, the Memories Paraiso Azul Beach Resort blends the flair and feel of old Cuba with the vibrancy of a flourishing tourist attraction and destination hotspot.

Location: Beachfront in Cayo Santa Maria right next to the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria

2 weeks in heaven

Once I found the foods I enjoyed to eat, I had a fantastic time. The people at the resort (staff) were amazing, Lorna, Yamilka, Janny, Yuri, Annalise, Luciano the sunwing rep, Yo the banker, Beidys, Dayrel,Reinaldo from grand memories, Jimmy from grand, And Abel the Manager only to mention a few, made my vacation that much more enjoyable. The beaches were absolutely gorgeous, good entertainment. Friendly courteous staff. The sunset cruise and dolphin show were amazing. Remember this is cuba not Hawaii or Dubai or some rich place like that, it is just a little slice of heaven in an otherwise poor country. But a must go if you want to have an great and affordable vacation.Craig Roe

This is SEÑOR PEACH. The title is exactly what I love about this resort. No big fancy lobby or water fountains, no Hugh rooms unless you want one ? Food very good Staff amazing!!!! Beach ranked #7 in the world ! Crystal clear water. If you like cold beer beverages etc Good food, clean rooms, clean pool with swim up bar and one of the best beaches in the world with 4 bars and 3 bar B Q's on beach. For around $120 per day or less all in !? Come here !! Hey I don't drink and have fun at a fountain I'm at pool or beach. I don't hang at lobby until night cause it's 24 hours lol. I don't need a big room I just need a king bed, clean and AC GREAT !! Don't hang in room on holidays. Music always at beach bars. Food as well!! Great atmosphere!! Go to Mandy's Canadian bar on beach look for the Canada flags ! The restaurants are good to very good and improving!! The staff don't have there hands out they are just happy your there so they have a job to support there family's. So genuine the staff !! From the top down. Abel is the new GM only 3 months in but already improving the resort bit by bit. See only great things coming !! Food the royalton is next store same owners it's ranked top 10 in Caribbean so they order same food. Food for thought lol Now in slow season the buffet tables are not all full, but there is always fresh fish, chicken, beef, pasta, pizza etc to have at lunch and dinner. The al la carte restaurants are all good some very good. Breakfast always fresh omelettes eggs pancakes fresh fruit and salad bar great !! Plus in the market yes there's a market next store with rum cigar bar Bowling alley, restaurants, gym and vendors that don't bother you they wait for you. :) Always music and dancers entertaining at market. Now you pay at these restaurants but very cheap very. But cool vibes. Bring cash for the week. No bank machines. But could change day by day lol it is cuba. There are banks in lobby and market to exchange your money. Basically American exchange rates. For CC money. Cuban paso. There are safes in rooms for piece of mind but there is no crime it's awesome there. Always decent to very good entertainment at theatre at night shows. Entertaining team during day at pools and beach, great gals and guys helping your day with yoga to soccer and fun games. Clown doing tricks at night fashion shows and live music in lobby at night and did I say cold beverages from a great happy staff !!! ;) 2 - 24 bars. One the grill has 24 burgers hotdogs and French fries. For the late night partiers !! Meat and potatoes nothing fancy people !!clean rooms cold drinks good food and a great pool and beach for a reasonable rate. Awesome!!! Plus the most genuine accommodating staff from the top down. There's no reason not to go here !! Been 10 times here and Jamaica Mexico Dominican Havana etc.But I come back here !! WHY ?? Sure sometimes the phone in room don't work or there fixing the railings or they run out of stuff. But if you remember it's Cuba and there's no Cosco or Walmart etc. To run to ! You don't care !! It's about the staff the people the beach the weather. A clean safe resort. This is what this resort is. Special thx to the sunwing staff on plane etc. Special thx to memories staff Abel GM Dennis Rueben Maria Luis Jose Armando Laudo Esteban Yasmany Youri Umarry. Rosa Borelis Ivon Marlin Brando Ridel Mannual Etc. Etc. Etc.

Great Vacation

We have just returned from an eleven day stay. Our group of nine was easily accommodated at all the restaurants. For a 4 star hotel in Cuba, this hotel is wonderful. The service was fantastic! This is one of the best beaches we've ever seen. The hotel and beach were kept clean and all the staff (from the front desk, to cooks, waiters, housekeepers to the managers) were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We felt welcome and will return soon.
