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.

Birthday Retreat

English is very limited here, so communication can be bit tough unless you go to Piano bar as the two girls in there are fab. We had few issues with our room, when we arrived we had no hot water & then week later the air conditioning started to leak down the room! Both they came to fix straight away but the air con still leaks so we ended up placing towel on the floor when we had it on. The wifi is totally pants, and you can use most internet card trying to log on, for it then to disconnect you. The food is average! We found breakfast was the best out all three! As for Italian restaurant they have onsite that's not all that and food was average they did offer change if you didn't eat it. We was there when old president passed away, they didn't inform guests of no entertainment till couple days afterwards, you'd only know if you had news on.

MY CUBAN RETREAT!

This is our thirteenth visit to the resort and it's better than ever. We'll be back. We love the relactive isolation and the surrounding mountains. The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is as good as it gets. Bring beach shoes as the walk through the shallows is rocky and there are occasional stonefish. Good swimmers can venture out to the main reef where the fish are plentiful and one sees the best coral.Two catamarans are constantly on the go and kayaks are available. Adjacent to the property there's horseback riding and paragliding for the adventurous. I did the latter three years ago. Amazing, though not sanctioned by the resort because of liability issues.We love the restaurants and music and all the bars. The staff are friendly and the drinks are good.Nelson is legendary at managing the omelette bar and most evenings there's a roast as well as grilled fish or meat. The deserts are heavenly. The theme restaurants are intimate and fabulous.The best steak ever! For lunch, we love the beach bar and grill for the fish, hamburgers, chicken and pizza and the informal convenience.Julie, the manager, since Sunwing took over from Breezes two years ago, has turned a great resort into simply the best. The staff are so friendly, the music and singing, dancers and shows are second to none. Don't miss the opera and the aqua ballet shows.The uncomfortable plastic hard loungers on the beach are being replaced.The WiFi is slow but quite reliable, the cappuccino is incredible and the piano bar rocks.It's reassuring that there's a doctor on site. Thanks again Julie!

The icing on the cake

Our stay at Memories Jibacoa came at the end of a touring holiday of Cuba. We had covered a lot of distance and stayed in some wonderful casa with some wonderful families. Now was the time to slow down and to relax for a couple of days and relax before returning to the UK. From the first moment we stepped in through the front door we felt at home. We were warmly greated and despite arriving slightly ahead of schedule were directed to lunch. As independent travelers, we have only stayed in all inclusive resorts a few times over the years. This was to be our best ever experience of dining in a resort. The food was outstanding both in quality and choice. A special mention has to be made of the fish and pork served at the carvery at dinner. Our accommodation was first class and only a couple of minutes stroll to a beautifully clean, sandy beach and the warmest sea we had ever experienced.Attention to detail was everywhere. The grounds were kept clean and tidy with gardeners working tirelessly and always with a smile and a greeting.The most important asset a company has is it's employees. Here was a first class example of the staff at Memories Jibacoa making the difference. Everyone was pleasant and helpful, not in a pushy way, but calmly, efficiently and with a genuine desire to be friendly and helpful.I would absolutely no hesitation in recommending Memories Jibacoa to my friends and would happily return for a longer break at this wonderful resort.
