Our Opinion

A really great option for those wanting to stay in a resort that has one of the best beach locations on the strip. While the beach is a short walk away, it's worth it for the location and view of the beach. There are two pools located within the resort: one that is catered to a lively party crowd, while the other is quieter and better for relaxing. The food is OK. While it varies in freshness at times, there is always something for everyone, and the food choices change up often. The rooms are modern, maintained, and well-stocked regularly. There is also a nightclub nearby for those who want to experience a bit of the party scene in Varadero. This resort is just a taxi ride away from the historical parts of town, so it's highly recommended that you take advantage and check out the historical side of the city!

Staff don't listen

My hubby has mobility issues. This resort us massive. I requested a room at the top and got a filthy room at the bottom. We were promised transport to the top for food and entertainment. Only happened twice. Did not have a working telephone to call the desk. Had to go to management to be moved. The room we got was full of mold, horrible beds, very dirty and noisy. Do have to say the food us excellent but that was the only positive. I also had a nasty fall two days before we left. We were on our way to catch an excursion bus. I turned to find my husband. I did not realize I was on a bridge. My foot went over the side and there was no soil against the side of the bridge. I fell about twenty feet and my head barely missed a beer bottle. I am still having trouble with my ankle and elbow. I reported this to the staff but they didn't care. DONT GO TO THIS PLACE. It is gross

Be prepared...

If you are traveling to Cuba for the first time, prepare yourself. A three or four star hotel in Cuba is very different than any other country. Don't expect your definition of luxury. Read about the country's economy and the wages Cubans earn. Bring strong mosquito repellent, a rain jacket, a Brita water bottle and a lot of sunscreen. And be prepared to be hot!The resort is an all-inclusive with one main dining area, a few small food shacks and a handful of restaurants that require reservations. Dining rooms are not air conditioned and open. Expect a lot of flies, birds and mosquitos attacking you and your food while dining. The food is decent but I recommend the Typhoid vaccine. Remember, it's Cuba. The staff do not go out of their way to help you. It's just not their nature; very different culture. Tip your servers and bar tenders! They work long hours for a very minimal wage. The air conditioning the rooms works great!!! I had to turn the AC up at one point because I was cold! Before I checked out, I left my tennis shoes, all my non prescription medication, a lot of clothes, and a 10 CUCs for the housekeepers. There were 10 of us in our group and none of us felt unsafe, none of us had anything stolen, and only one person got sick. Go to Cuba. Stay at Memories. And enjoy yourself!!! It's not an amazing resort but there is nothing wrong with it considering the destination.

2nd Evacuation Stop

We were evacuated here due to lack of power and water in their sister hotel down the road.The location is good with close transport links t the city, as for the resort we were placed in what i could only describe as staff quarters (block 21), the rooms were damp and musty with very poor decor throughout, you could argue that after a hurricane you'd expect this but it was plain to see that this was the normal condition.The food was very basic but with plenty of choice, better than what we had experienced in the last resort any how.I'm sure that if seen in better circumstances the resort would have been more appealing.

We were moved to this hotel from grand memories varadero for one night during hurricane Irma I cannot believe people pay money to stay here i thought they had opened it just for the 500 odd people that were evacuated the rooms are disgusting looked as though they hadn't been used since the 60/70's it is the second worst hotel I have stayed in grand memories was worse. Had to make it a one star as wouldn't be able to submit otherwise

Ok Trip

This was my third time to Cuba, I really enjoyed my stay because you make your own time and we are not fussy people! We stayed at grand Memories before here and I will say Grand Memories is more updated except the room. We had a beautiful updated diamond club room!! This resort is very big, so lots of walking. The food was just as good as Grand Memories. I liked the drinks at Memories better as they were drinkable, at Grand Memories I found some to be to strong to drink. The staff were more friendly here, especially at the bar by the beach, they were excellent!! The day time entertainment was better at Grand Memories, but we really enjoyed the night time entertainment at Memories! The lobby is always a great spot in the evening as well but we found Grand Memories lobby not many people. The beach is nicer at Memories!! The one thing we hated most about Memories is the Pool, not once did we get in the pool because it was very dirty and green ;( we plan to return early spring but are still undecided of which hotel we will go to, we are leaning more towards Memories as we are bringing children this time but if we continue to read bad reviews and know they aren't cleaning the pools we will return to Grand Memories! Can anyone suggest a nicer place with great nightlife entertainment and great activities for children in there early teens, 11,13,14?? ThanksMEMORIES PLEASE CLEAN YOUR POOL and STOP REUSING TOWELS!! THANKS
