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.

This place is a gem

Visited with Sunwing Vacations and everything was well organized from beginning to end. Thank you Sherry Pinnsoneault, Sear's Chatham, ON Pick up at airport, check in a breeze, rooms fine, meals good, staff incredibly helpful and courteous, a la carte restaurants very good, deli good, beach bar fine, nightly shows well done. Small all inclusive, good feel, very clean, some of our party had pool side rooms and we're happy, we had ocean view and were very satisfied. This is a great place to go!! Thank-you Memories Jibocao!!

Returned after 10 year hiatus

Visited this resort from March 2 through March 9, Diamond club members.I wanted my wife to see Havana as well as experiencing the snorkelling off the beach of this resort.I had previously visited the resort 4 times before but 10 years had past since my last trip.The major changes were it was not nearly as busy has it had been in the past, activities are more low key, food was significantly better. I also noticed that the hotel is starting to look a little tired and needs some tender loving care. I was surprised at the price increase that on a comparative basis is not I line with a 5 star rating.The major attraction is still the people, their friendliness and positive efforts, I also noticed several staff members that are still there from my previous trips.A big shout out goes to some outstanding staff members Jenny - concierge for the Diamond club ( a real Rock Star ), Nelson for his smile and outstanding omelettes each morning and Maite from housekeeping who took very good care of us on a daily basis.As previously mentioned the food was very good, breakfast daily at the main buffet, lunch ( fish fried and grilled ) at the beach resturant, dinners were spread out over the week at the buffet and specialty resturants.We had dinner one night at the small resturant up the road called Le Crique, this must be on everyone's to do list !We enjoyed our trip to Havana that was set up by Jenny. We had a fantastic tour quide Jimmy and went to Havana in a vintage Pontiac.We had a great holiday and only missed snorkelling due to red flags throughout the week.We will be back !

1st Time at a Stay-Put Resort

Having taken cruises for several years, this was our first time at an all inclusive resort and were a little apprehensive. As retired seniors we enjoyed a very relaxing and tranquil 2 weeks in February 2017 at this resort. More active individuals would not be disappointed. Large well appointed clean rooms, overall good food with decent choice, good entertainment and very friendly helpful staff. We did upgrade to their Diamond Club package, which for us was well worth the small extra cost. We would definitely go to Memories Jibacoa again.

2nd.time at Memories Jibacoa !!!

The Resort was clean but rooms could use some updating. A/C not working so mold and smell becoming an issue. We've been moved on block # 2 (ocean view )On this block the Housekeeping staff were very impertinent and my wife was very disappointed about her attitude.The General Manager tried to fix the issue but it seems that the chambermaid was working for quite a long time on the resort and she was smiling after us "doing the same thing"!!!Lobby Bar staff were good once you got to know them. When you were a newbie tips were the only way to get their attention.The Beach Lunch Buffet had a good variety but very receptive although the staff here are the best. Prompt and courteous service (regardless of tips, but of course we did!) Restaurant staff need some help. Almost every meal we ordered had some sort of mix up with people getting the wrong appetizers or drinks. Service was inconsistent. Some had extremely slow service. Others okay. Food was a hit and miss. sometimes overly salty to make up for lack of seasoning. They would run out of things. French fries one day, but not the next. Chicken one day, but not the next. you can feel the scarcity of items here. Buffet was one of the worst i have seen. Hot foods were coldish. Lack of variety. Not much for fruit/veggies. I never thought i would be so happy to come home and have apples and bananas again. Morning omelette and coffee were good.Resort was a nice size. Pool area and grounds are well kept. lots of loungers and cushions. Beach was nice with plenty of shade and loungers as well but you should be very early at the beach to be lucky to get a shade.It's the only place I've been seen when the tourists are going early in the morning for living the beach towels on the loungers all they long.The same thing happens to pool area too.They don't care , they go to eat they go to rest themselves on the rooms and after that on the evening they realize that they have to come back to the beach for taking the towels.The General Manager doesn't do anything with respect of that.Or they don't want to strait up the civilized rules to keep all the tourists happy.What we did see of nightly shows was good. The lobby bar is open 24 hours so you can always find a drink/snack. Overall the place is nice and for me and for my wife after long hours of working hard in Canada it's all-wort it to spend few days in Cuba.If I go back?! Of course, because I love Cuba and Cuban people !!!Regards,Mike&Stephanie

A Little Slice of Heaven

My favourite resort! I've been three times, and plan to return. A natural coral reef shelters the beach, and you can walk right into the ocean for the best snorkelling I've encountered outside of Hawaii. We eat breakfast and dinner at the buffet (omelette bar, pasta bar, pizza oven) and lunch every day at the beach.The staff is amazing. So kind and caring, they feel like friends and family! The rooms are bright and clean, and the resort is quick to resolve any issues. I highly recommend the piano bar in the evenings, before the show, and the disco afterwards. And definitely try a spa treatment (the massage cranial is amazing!). Once you visit Memories Jibacoa, you'll want to return again and again!
