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!

This must be the lowest of all Varadero hotels, at kleast I hope so.

We attended this Hotel as a Diamond Club member. To say the least service was terrible, there were many things NOT available. To find a BAR that had ICE was a mission every day, ice is a #1 item in a bar is not comprehensible. There is no disco or any decent Hotel late night entertainment, so if you're single and looking to have a good time you are forced to leave the hotel and pay hundreds of $ for Taxi and entrances to outside nightlife. They would run out of basic food dressings like ketchup for hot dogs and burgers (all the time). They use old bread, one of the burgers I ordered had mold, I don't understand how these people are allowed to have such low standards with food. The second pool was green and full of algae for three days straight due to poor pool maintenance. The bars close at 5 except for the one in the Lobby, this is unacceptable; if you're planning to spend the day by the beach or pool with friends drinking, well think again. Service to the rooms was also bad, they would run out of towels almost every time, so we were forced to use the same ones. Do yourself a favor and pay more per night for a better hotel, otherwise you will regret going with this hotel based on the price.

It was a real pleasure

I’m in the hotel and gastronomy business for 25 years now. I traveled a lot, worked a lot’s of different type of places and spent my vacation in many places before. I have experience in luxury and low level leisure. I don’t understand people who saying that this place is awful. This is in the Caribbean, and not the Four Seasons Gresham Palace, or other 5+ star hotel. I spent the one of my best vacation here with my wife. The location is perfect, the territory itself is big, yes you have to walk around from A to B, but if you don’t want, there is a possibility to use one of the hop on hop off electric mini bus, what are always going around the territory to pick up guests. The buffet has a wide variety, but it can be a bit boring after a while, but I always found something for myself. The room was good, the bath need some touch up, but hey, again, this is not an European luxury place. The staff is overwhelming friendly, this is more what made my stay unforgettable then the place itself . The beach is clear, white sand, grill and bar, and the animations are fun to join. Every night was a music performance, and I have to tell You, those guys made me dance and sing! The hotel has wifi, but only in the lobby, and slow like hell. This one and the only thing what I complaining about. We went there in the early of May, and the hotel was about 40% full. Not many people, not noisy that all, was a great pleasure to spend our days. The weather was just perfect, 28-30c at days, 25 evening, and about 23 at night. Not even once we turned on the A/C at the night! Great programs for kids, adults and elders as well. I only recommend this place, and yes, if I have a chance to go back, I will!

Awful -- Stay away

I checked into Memories Varadero at about 2am after a very long flight delay, and was exhausted. When I arrived in my room, my initial reaction was that this room should not be in service. The walls were dirty, the TV and fridge were not working, the shower curtain had mildew and the shower curtain rod was rusted. The patio door wouldn't open, I had no towels for the pool, and you could see the springs of the mattress. The room was damp due to a complete lack of ventilation. However, I was exhausted and didn't feel like taking all my luggage back to the lobby in the dark. I pulled back the sheets, inspected them, sprayed myself in bug spray and hoped for the best.In the morning, I found out from other members of my group that I was lucky because at least my air conditioner worked. A friend with a room on the ground floor said his patio door didn't lock, so he jammed the chair against it to keep it closed.The buffet breakfast had very few options, offering many of the same items at different stations. There were flies and birds everywhere in the restaurant. We had to cover our food with napkins. Almost our entire group is now dealing with digestive issues. The beach is beautiful, stay away from the pool -- they'll serve guests past the point of intoxication and not cut them off. There were no lifeguards or first aid available. There were a few bright spots on staff, however, in general most didn't seem to care. I was approached on several occasions by staff overtly asking for tips or amenities, which was awkward.Do yourself a favour and stay away from this place.
