- 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.
The entire resort is beautiful and well kept. This was our second trip to this resort, and we are planning to return. It is adult only, and relaxing. On the beautiful coral reef beach I had shade and my husband had sun, side by side, all day. We could spend the entire day right on the sand- restaurant, bar and restrooms right there. Lovely fitness facilities available (next years goal) and smiling friendly staff everywhere. Maybe not the best choice for a real party vacation, but perfect for relaxation.
A good coral reef was a short, easy swim away from the beach and featured a nice variety of corals, sponges, anemones, fish and assorted critters, though big fish were scarce, maybe thanks to the obvious local fishing pressure. Food and drink here were quite good. We found even the house wine quite acceptable. No digestive problems even though we ate a variety of things, including salads. Lots of live music, especially enjoyable Buena Vista Social Club type numbers. Very nice staff. Easy to book watercraft and tennis courts, although the latter were not in the greatest shape. Bicycle rentals could not be arranged but the area looks nice for cycling if you had a bike (many other guests brought their own). Clientele included a lot of 55+ age range, a mix of Canadians and Europeans, easy to get along with. Our room was large and comfortable with a great view of the nearby ocean but was not 5 star and not everything functioned perfectly. Day visits to Havana were easy to arrange and enjoyable but prepare to spend a little money unless you are happy with a larger bus tour group; If you want to see a fair bit of Havana you may want to be closer in. We had a very relaxing visit at this quiet and attractive hotel. Difficulty of using the internet was the only serious frustration- at least with our devices. The necessity of using cash for everything was a bit tedious. Hotel gave better exchange on Canadian than US dollars.
Thanks to the lovely staff at Memories Jibacoa, we had a wonderfully relaxing week here in the Cuban sun. We would like to thank our friends Yuiliiet, Ada, Yoel, Nelson, Oralys, Adyamas, Noeskey and Kiki for making our trip "home" special as always. Our rooms are always spotlessly clean; we have our breakfast, lunches and dinners and evening cocktails surrounded by our Cuban friends. Thank you all again for a lovely stay and see you in December.

We arrived after a 3 day stay in Havana and were delighted with the sea view room which was in fact a suite with a separate lounge so two toilets and loads of space. View from the balcony fantastic. Only minus perhaps was that the sun did not shine on the balcony so not sun bathing there. But why would you want to when the beach was so close. So quiet and peaceful yet had pedalos, sailing cats a great beach bar which served the most wonderful grilled fish and loads of sparkling wine. More impressive the reef which was easily accessible and not far from the shore. Would advise beach shoes as the sand is sharpish and there are rocks and stones. One must is a drinks thermos so you can get it refilled when you want and not have to rely on plastic cups which got blown away. The food in the buffet was fine with a good choice but as with all Caribbean holidays do not expect much if any shell fish. That seems a rare commodity for some reason. Lobster costs $15.00 extra and has to be ordered. The three other restaurants are the beach grill, great to sit on the beach while eating, The international and the Italian. Choices limited again no shell fish unless specially ordered and do not try the smoked salmon as it is tasteless and very watery. The beef was fantastic as was the soup we had. In the Italian the shell fish linguine was a delight. One big plus was the activities during the day which were arranged especially the morning walk or hike. We found a wonderful restaurant close by and even though on all inclusive did splash out for some local ambiance. Evening entertainment was mixed the best being the Circus, Opera and aqua dance. Opera was especially impressive, All in all a great stay in an a nice hotel. Staff were mixed in helpfulness and for some the customer service was it seemed a chore but for others a delight. Thankfully more of the latter than former. One tip. If staying here do not bother with staying in Havana as there are day trips to the capital and you will see as much as we did in the 3 days we had there first. Extra 3 days in hotel would be a better bet.
Usually we get off the resort more often but we were too busy playing tennis and enjoying the tournaments our favourite tennis pro Alberto set up; yoga with the excellent instructor from Vancouver Island and snorkelling because the water was calm. We enjoy the fact that the resort is not huge. Staff is always friendly.
