We came as a couple during Christmas break 2016. Overall, the buffet food lacked flavour and diversity, except for the Christmas Eve dinner which was memorable. A note to girls--bathroom amenities did not have hair conditioner or body lotion, better to bring your own. As for the beaches, having to ask for the chairs was a bit troublesome at times, and hammocks might be a great addition. We didn't find too much to do during spare time--but enjoyed the sports field with tennis courts and ping pong. Unfortunately we broke up right after the trip (not due to the stay of course), but I appreciate the efforts of Memories Holguin.
We stayed here over new years with our girls (1 yr and 3.5) and my parents. booked last minute. positives: pretty older hotel with lots of vegetation. nice bright freshly redone lobby. loved the beach, lots of pretty trees for shade. many multi-leveled pools, was very pretty though the pools were very cold for me. i think holguin has my fav beaches as i love natural shade. Buffet by beach opened near the end of our stay which we enjoyed. Open air main buffet (i love that). we stayed in room 724. Very spacious, clean, had crib for our youngest (not one of those foldable cribs). Loved the comfy outdoor rockers ( first hotel ive been to with these). nice high back chair in room perfect for breastfeeding. single bed for 3 year old and two singles put together to make a king, all good we managed. comfy beds. Ac electronic, quiet and hairdryer worked well. high ceilings and bright big room. seemed freshly painted. I personally loved that there was a hill- get a bit of exercise and lovely views from top. instead of the stairs we took the shortcut through woods it was great even our one year old liked walking there. difficult with stroller - we didnt bother with it after the first day. great kids club. our 3 year old loved it. there was a kids dinner too which she enjoyed with the staff. foam parties at beach and pool those were fun. bathroom has ventilator so no mildew smell in room. pizza hotdogs and burgers at beach bar for snacks though often had a shortage ( girls were happy-and i was happy not to have to run around to find them food it was on the beach so great) most staff very friendly though some seemed tired/ frustrated at times. lots of animation to get u moving involved if thats what u like.negatives: weird bursts of boiling hot water in shower at peak times ( i took a shower mid day once without this problem). on the plus side great water pressure. no bathtub- no big deal for us gave girls showers. ceiling in bathroom looked like it will cave in. had some bugs- got bitten when around pool bushes in afternoon. kids didnt really get bitten so i suppose stay out of shaded areas by bushes by pool and u'll b fine. on beach did not have bites (first 3 days we were only at the beach stayed one day by pool when windy and got bitten). Buffet has limited choices but u can always find something. i was happy with freshly prep eggs and LOTS of papaya. calamari or fish for lunch freshly cooked. same for dinner. i enjoyed the bread, butter. has yogurt and fresh smoothies most days. if u love gourmet meals and lots of variety try DR or Mexico five star hotels. we found the food good, but are not picky. girls loved ice cream though often was melted. service at snack bar was very slow, as a result only went there twice.we went with low expectations and were pleasantly surprised. a nice relaxed atmosphere. id return.
I have stayed here and it was a great resort. I stayed at the Blu Costa verda just in December and was horrified at how the Management and front desk treat the guests. I am a single female and travel alone. At Memories they made me feel safe and looked after my needs. The Blu Costa verda on the other hand treated me very rudely. At the Blau I was 14 days I started my holiday on the 3rd of December on the 4th of December management and security came and told me I did not pay for that night that I only paid for the 3rd not the 4th and then from the 5th to the 17th I booked A2 week 14 day trip in August the blow was going to throw me on the street and less I paid another 77 Coupe to stay there on the 4th until the 5th which does not make any sense because I paid for a 14-day night so I've been fighting with that Resort as well as through Sunwing and I travel I would recommend that nobody goes to this Resort the Blau Costa Verde especially if you're single female this was the most horrifying place I've ever been to the allowed men to use the women's washroom and urinate everywhere they took another 77 pesos from me for the night of the 4th when I was there from the 3rd to the 17th of December I highly recommend memories it was an awesome awesome vacation at memories at the Blau Costa Verde it was the most horrifying horrible experience in traveling I've ever had do not recommend the Blau totally recommend memories and just ahead all the management and all the staff at memories you guys were amazing story you should actually teach the blog cost of air to some lessons
We had a great time. Grand parents and two toddlers. Pools were great, really clean. Not to crowded. Really a pleasant vacation. Food was good, the buffet was better than the restaurants. Nothing fancy but a lot to choose from. The wine was not really good, thats my only complaint in the food/drink department. Beside that the tipping aspect was a bit annoying. Always needing to cary cash. But beside that we really enjoyed this hotel.
We came from the snowy Russia, we all really enjoyed it here. The hotel is beautiful, the area is very large, the staff is very friendly, service at the highest level. The sea is very close to the hotel, is very well thought-out infrastructure, convenient location of the bungalow to all facilities of the hotel. Meals varied and very tasty. Separately want to say about the work persoonala and animators. Not a day goes by that they do not come up with something new and exciting to entertain guests!))) We were very pleased and wanted to get here again!
