Our Opinion

Without question one of our most popular hotels in Cuba. Memories Jibacoa is secluded, but offers more than enough to keep you entertained. There are many activities during the day and right in front of the resort is some of best snorkeling Varadero. It's also an hour closer to Havana than Varadero, making a day trip much easier. Also, check out the tour to Santa Cruz, it's well worth it and the people there are amazing. Memories Jibacoa (formerly Breezes) consistently gets good reviews, that in itself speaks volumes for this all inclusive resort.


Overview

Nestled on 19 acres overlooking Arroyo Bermejo beach and surrounded by beautiful mountains, the adults-only Memories Jibacoa resort is the perfect setting for a wedding, a honeymoon, or a secluded holiday away from the hustle and bustle. Memories Jibacoa resort is a tropical hideaway, situated mid-way between Varadero and Havana, offers superb food and 'round the clock activities, including a 24 hour games room with billiards and table games, and a 24 hour jacuzzi in the garden area for a midnight dip.

Location: Beachfront, 60 minutes from Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport, 75 minutes to Havana and 60 minutes to Varadero.

Very good hotel

We recently visited Cuba for the first time and stayed at Memories Jibacoa. This was our first time in Cuba and I was concerned whether standards would be good especially after the recent hurricane that hit the island and that we had booked a beach front room. What a wonderful time we had. The hotel was amazing, the beach front room had been fully cleaned following damage from sand blown into the rooms by the hurricane damaging the patio doors. What a massive room, with a massive double bed, large wardrobe with numerous coathangers, comfy conservatory armchairs to sit on in the room, a fridge, coffee making machine, TV with limited English channels, and chairs plus small drinks table on patio. Food was more than adequate, maybe a little repetitive but always something good to eat. The International Restaurant was excellent. All staff were extremely friendly and were willing to go out their way to help. Absolutely no negative things to say about our experience at Memories Jibacoa. WARNING if you are walking near the beachfront rooms or on the beach near these rooms please wear beach shoes as occasionally we removed pieces of glass from the sand presumably from the damaged patio doors. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.

A peaceful week at a beautiful hideaway!

This is the most relaxing and welcoming all-inclusive I have ever been to! The beach is secluded, the staff are beyond friendly and service was very responsive. This is was the perfect place to unwind and unplug. Lots of activities poolside, yoga, hikes, tennis and salsa. The evening shows were top notch and the piano bar was a hoot.A short drive to Havana and Veradero, but off the beaten path.So many guests were regulars and now I know why.

Location, People, and R&R

We just returned from our second trip. I think all the post hurricane issues are fixed. No paper plates, warm food, and 24 hour water! Check in - fast as only 6 guests arriving. No locks for the room safe were available, meant carrying valuables everywhere till we got one the next day.The Hotel is lovely. Room - clean and comfortable, lush garden view. The lobby area was always clean and tidy. The buffet food was plain but good. You do not go to Cuba for the food, but there was always something tasty and about 20% of the buffet changed every night. In one of those oddities, I arrived sick and got better while there, so no hygiene issues!Of the a la cartes, Mediteraneo was the best – Chateaubriand to die for. Taverna (Italian) was very good. Pork escalope (referred to as ‘Pork Sheets’ on the menu) was great. Ranchon (Cuban) works hard. Beach location is lovely, the Ajiaco soup was amazing, the rest was a bit average and the Lomo Pork was dry as dust. “Pet peeve” here and other resorts – the bars serve cheap liquor. It may be that the “Diamond Club” upgrade assures you a better quality, but there was no better version on the pool bar gantry. The lobby bar had two sides – cheap, and brand name, but unfailingly the staff reached for cheap. I get it that works for the bubba cup drinkers, but is a nice glass of brandy too much to ask for after supper? Glen Ryan (the ‘scotch’) is made in Spain! Biggest Issue! The resort has a fantastic coral reef off beach. And that is the resort’s Achilles heel. We had 6 (of 7) days of red flags where we could not get to it. (5 last time). I know they can't control the weather, but it means you should not plan a snorkeling trip. You can do nothing but lounge or take days off resort looking for attractions. A car will take you places like Havana, show you around and bring you back after the day for 80 CUC. Practical stuff. All the power is 220v. North American plugs fit but appliances need to be dual voltage. No 115v socket in our bathroom. We did eventually get a 115v adapter delivered. The room safe is small. 10 ¾” door (12” width) x 6” deep x 7” high. I got my tablet 11.5x8 1/2” in on an angle and could barely get it out! Take a flashlight. Lighting is iffy in some places.Check Out – return beach towels to the shack and get card receipts. Take receipts and the safe lock and key to front desk. Would I go back? The staff, the location, the food, the room were all superb. The cheap booze was disappointing. The closed ocean much more so. So probably not, unless on a really good deal like this time.

1 week vacation in the sun...total relaxation

Amazing ambiance and staff super friendly and helpful. We would like to express our thanks to the following staff: Mayza, Laura and Heidi for their kind service in restaurants, Lisa & Yendri for their super entertainment, Maité for cleaning our room , Oralys for her exceptional drinks at the piano bar and super way of welcoming guest;"ey yai yai", Vivian, Noeski and Estajovich for their exceptional service at the bars and Henri was his patience and encouragement with me (Paula) during the snorkeling expedition. Entertainment was super and water show was awesome.Overall we had an amazing week and the place is fantastic for total relaxation. One improvement we would like to see is better labeling of the food in the buffet....we are vegetarian and at times, we did not know if the food was mixed with fish or meat (I.E. brown rice dishes). Italian restaurant was perfect...we went twice and lots of vegetarian choices.
