- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
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.
Travelled Sept. 28 to Oct. 9, 2016.This was our 5 trip in 3 years and we were not disappointed. We saw many improvements since our last trip in May, 2016A La carte restaurants were delicious. Much improved from previous visits. Staff were great as usualBuffet is very good and service is top notchThe desserts are fabulous, maybe too good. Rooms are kept spotless. The maids do a great job.Thanks to the grounds staff, grounds are kept immaculate.Once disco reopens with a full bar and air conditioning it will only get better. AC will be installed very soon. All the staff work exceptionally hard and I do hope that the management team appreciates their hard work. The staff are the main reason we return and will keep returning.I would like to mention a few of the outstanding staff that makes our stay all the more special: Ali, Ada, Belkas, Yohandra , Rene, Lester, Kiki, Agustin, Jorges , Pedro, Edourdo, Yuillet, Andrei, Yeniol and Henri.The animation team do a great job.The entertainment is top notch, enjoyed all the shows. And a special thank you to the general manager, Julie for all her hard work.
Yet again great time had by all. Slight mix up with rooms to start with but all sorted by reception.Visited September this time with two of our sons and daughter in law and found it a lot busier and hotter than last visit just the two of us in March. One of the reasons for going here is the snorkelling and it was a lot better in September a lot more to see and clearer. The food is very good with plenty of choice. The staff are great and friendly. The resort is clean and tidy. We did a private taxi tour of Havana, a night out for a meal and a show at the Social Club in Havana and a meal up the road from hotel one evening all arranged by Kiki in reception, great service. Would not bother next time with the meal up the road, It was very nice but better food in the Hotel.Three of us did some diving from the dive club on site, Very relaxing and with very knowledgeable dive guides and a very good price.Piano bar is a must great friendly service especially Oralis ("Aye yai yai !"), good atmosphere and air con.Hotel location is good away from it all but within 1 hour of Havana (a must for a visit) a good beach and a decent reef not far out for snorkelling.Still some upgrading required to make this hotel great but a lot has and is changing as we noticed since March. Could do with some more glasses for drinks as they were always short and you end up with little plastic cups, We took our own decent plastic glasses and thermos mugs for outside at the entertainment and daytime at the beach. I would also get rid of the baths in the rooms and fit decent walk in showers but that is my preference, not every ones choice. All in all we had a great holiday and would visit Memories Jibacoa again.Thanks again to all the staff from manager Julie to reception to waiters to cleaners to entertainers to gardeners, all made our holiday great.
My husband and I just returned from a two week vacation at this beautiful resort where we celebrated 45 years of marriage. This was our eighteenth time at this resort so you can see that we love it here. Since the change over from Superclub Breezes to Memories we can definitely see the change for the better. The food is the biggest improvement but also rooms have been updated and it's just a totally different atesomophere. It's wonderful to see general manager Julie interacting with guests and staff as well as Ernesto, the food and beverage manager walking around and chatting with everyone to see if they are happy. The only issued I had was the fact that we had late flight out and we had to be out of our room by noon. Even though they provide courtesy room to freshen up its not the same. Would be nice if we were able to keep room till we left the resort, that way you could enjoy nap or just rest before your flight home.
The hotel is in a nice location with a lovely beach but in my opinion looks dated and requires some refurbishment. On arrival the room we were given was not suitable as the main ceiling required some painting/repair work. We informed reception the following morning and asked for a new room, they did not seem interested and made no efforts to come and see the room and seemed to shrug their shoulders. Luckily for us later that day we informed our holiday rep who spoke to them, we were then given a new room, which was a lot better. Issues like this can always occur and it is the way they are dealt with that matters, I should not have had to get our holiday rep involved and if the reception staff did not understand the issue they should have asked someone from the hotel management to come and talk with me and see the room. The beach is very popular due to the nice breeze coming off the sea, water shoes are a must due to the number of pebbles and rocks when entering the sea. Sun loungers were always available at the beach and pool and the areas were very tidy. I think more umbrellas are required around the pool as they do go very quickly. The food in the main restaurant is pretty good and the a la carte even better even though it seemed rushed due to the number of sittings they had. All staff other than reception were very friendly, helpful and we never had any issues getting served food or drink in a timely manner We did have a very relaxing stay but we came away slightly disappointed.
This was a very special trip for my wife and I as we treated her mom to her first trip to Cuba. In fact her first all inclusive. My wife and I are frequent travellers and this was our 8th trip to Cuba in the last 2 years.After weeks of researching for a suitable resort for the mother in law who is assisted by a walker, AND reading dozens of reviews, looking at satellite photos of the resort (looking for a villa close to the beach), we decided on this beatiful resort.I will go over items individually to help you visualize.Check in: we arrived after 9pm and check in was quick and smooth. We only had 14 patrons checking in with us. Everything we needed was in our "envelope" as was the mother in law (MIL) our rooms keys, yes keys which are on springee plastic arm bracelets. Dinner ala carte vouchers. No safe key which was fine with us. I luv the keys are the last trip, the mag cards failed to work many times. OK front desk was efficient and courteous.Rooms: the resort still has Cuban flair as did our room. We requested weeks prior to our arrival villa 10 which we were provided. The MIL ground floor, my wife and I on the second floor. Amazing location for us all with amazing views and about 25 meters to the loungers on the beach. Perfect. The room was spotless including the bathroom. Our bed, 2 doubles pushed togethet were great 4 u. Pillows a little soft but who cares. The fridge only has water which is replaced when the previous bottle is left on the counter. No worry for beer as I had my bubba and we brought our own Pepsi down from Canada. Please remember that this is the Caribbean and you might feel the dampness and see the odd ant. Beach: we stayed in the same area all week which was under a large tree only a few meters from the water. Our beach area had many smooth rocks randomly on the beach depending on the tide. Water shoes a must. The western part of the resort was crowded and less if any rock. If you are looking for the perfect white sand with turquoise water, this resort is not for you. Cayo Coco or Cayo Santa Maria is just that. We selected this resort for the coral and rock base. The coral starts 5 or so meters off shore but the real coral, large live formations is approx. 60 ish metres off shore. Proximity to beach bar for us was perfect with service in our seats.Pool: we only swam in the pool and never layer around at if but lots of loungers and still cabanas at 9 am ish. The pool bar was steps from the pool and very quiet. Watch the odd slippery tile. Around the pool, don't step on the white plastic vents as they may break.Pool was very clean and warmLobby: smaller and quaint but there are actually 5 areas. 1 inside, 1 at the front outside and 3 areas out back towards the beach. All of which are relaxed, and with bar service.Piano bar: beautiful but we didn't visit it for drinks. only saw it.The grounds: beautiful and accessible for the MIL.Buffet: my wife and I again have travelled throughout Cuba and the Caribbean. Food was plentiful with a good variety of meats, cheeses, pasta, deserts etc. For those new to Cuba, leaf or romain lettuce is not usually available in Cuba. An ok selection of fresh fruit but a poor selection on yogurt in containers. My big complaint is that there is no air conditioning in this area. Although we ate our meals here, l would quickly eat and leave to wait for the others outside as it was way too hot. This was the only resort we have stayed at with this issue. Staff: amazing amazing amazing. I could go on. A really big hug and thank you to Yolanda at the beach rancho and beach service. Yolanda ALWAYS made sure the MIL was looked after. Another big thank you is Bryan in the Ranchon. Always smiling and helpful.Entertainment: I thought great during the day but I didn't see night time shows. My wife and MIL liked themClosing: a beautiful quaint resort. great snorkeling, great views, great rooms, great staff. The only thing that might keep me from returning would be the lack of air conditioning in the buffet. For the right price point. we will.A great central location to tour around.
