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!

Great people, great fun overall

Was here for a week. Resort is very large. Our room was in block 33 which is right in front of the beach but the furthest away from the lobby bar and buffet restaurant. The walk isn't impossible, but when laziness kicks in, its a hassle. The Rancho is the alternative restaurant about 2 minutes from the beach. Great staff! Jovanni I think his name was, always brought us coffee and drinks without me even asking. He always had a large smile on and was so bubbly and sweet :) The food is as good as food can be in Cuba. Good selection, just the same selection everyday, a bit bland, but hey, food is food. The entertainment team is superb, they remember everyone's names and let me say again, the resort is massive. Hard working team, they each participate in ALL the activities, stretching, zumba, volleyball, water polo, pool games, etc. and straight into the evening entertainment of dancing, shows etc. Chino, Dennis, Chocolate (don't remember his real name haha) ensured our trip was jam packed and kept us always laughing. Super hard working guys.Overall great time with great staff and other fellow tourists. Even though the resort was massive, everyone seemed to click with each other.

Great Vacation!

Just returned home today from the Memories Varadero, the reviews were mixed when I booked and I am glad I did. Rooms were average, they did say there was a stocked fridge, all there was in the fridge was water, but that was ok, just not what I was expecting. Our best Al a Carte restaurant was the Japanese . :) We met an amazing waitress in the buffet but unfortunately we didn't get her name but she always had a smile and hug for us. "The Cave" was an awesome time, Manuel and David were awesome. There was a beach foam party which was nice. Daily at the activity pool was always a good time, one afternoon there was a band there. There was also a dog & horse show which was cute. All in all it was a good trip.

nice beach

- Wi-Fy not good - 0 stars- Don't expect and variety in food - very plain - no spices. 1 star- We have a renovated room - but most rooms are not up to standard. 2 stars- Bars kept running out of ice. 2.5 stars- get ready to walk - big resort limited transportation. 2 stars- beach and beach staff - 4 stars - Staff - great people - 5 starsin the end you get what you pay for - did't expect much - on the bright side didn't gain any weight. :)

Wonderful "Memories" made here!

We stayed here from Feb10-17My 6th visit to Cuba..2nd time to Varadero and 1st to THIS resortThe resort is HUGE (12-15 min walk from lobby to beach) but there are carts that drive around and you can get a ride if you need oneNever a problem getting a chair at the beach OR either of the 2 beautiful large pools(Activity pool and quiet pool)The grounds are immaculate and resort is well laid outThere are several bars so no need to go far for drinks🍻The food is good (remember you are in Cuba) and plentiful and YES contrary to recent reviews we had NO problem finding HOT meals! We also ate at the Italian a la carte and Japanese (a MUST) Our room was 3rd floor in building the back so no view (of tree tops and resort next door) however we were right across from quiet pool where we spent a lot of our time and near lobby. Rooms have no coffee makers so being near lobby for your morning coffee filling up your Bubba mug might be a good thingOur room was spacious and "Ashley" kept it very clean. Beds were kinda hard but after 6 trips to Cuba I've come to expect no lessThe ONLY complaint I have about the room is that the water was not HOT. Lukewarm showers at best. Still...not a MAJOR thing for us This resort made me look at HUGE resorts in a totally different light. Even tho it was FULL that week it was NEVER crowded!The shows are very good too! Do NOT miss the Micheal Jackson show on the Saturday night! And the MAGIC show on the THURSDAY night!! AWESOME!!When we arrived in Varadero the airport was a nightmare!! We opted out of waiting for the bus to fill up and took a cab to our resort. We beat the bus by almost 2 hours!!! Very quick check in with no lines! TIP: if you do this make sure you go to your bus first and tell them you are taking a cab. You will need the card they have for you to get in the gate of your resort. Cabs about $40 CUC (we split with another couple) about 25 min ride. Well worth it and I would do it again!We did the jeep safari excursion and the Catamaran (with dolphins) excursion. I recommend you do a trip off the resort to see a bit of this beautiful country. The people in Cuba are soooo friendly!!The staff at Memories are friendly and provide EXCELLENT service. but I must say I witnessed some EXTREMELY RUDE TOURISTS!! Shame on you people!!One of the highlights of my trip was that I got engaged there on Valentine's Day! I will always treasure my "Memories" of this beautiful place!!❤️

Good for travelling with kids

If all-inclusive resort hotels are your thing then this isn't a bad one. The good: - The staff are friendly- the rooms are big enough- rooms are air conditioned, have TV with the standard hotel cable package (Disney channel, various news channels, music channel, etc)- rooms come with bottled water and beach towels. - kids club staff are super enthusiastic - great child friendly pool and beach, though both get rowdy around 5pm from all the very drunk touristsThe bad: - Hotel marketing says they accept credit cards, but their card reader machine has been broken for weeks according to the staff with no ETA on when it will be fixed or replaced.- This forces guests to use the on premise money changer, but leaves them at the mercy of their own bank's fraud detection and daily withdrawal limit policies. Moral of the story is either prepay your stay or bring enough cash to pay for absolutely everything.The rest:- Varadero is a roughly 2.5 hour drive each way from Havana airport, the taxi fare is CUC120. - The availability and quality of food at the buffet varies considerably. It won't win any awards, but it shouldn't do much harm. Some days the food was reasonable, other days there was no milk for breakfast for example. Ensure the freshly grilled meat/seafood is actually cooked, at peak times they tend to rush things a bit which can lead to a bit of quality time riding the porcelain bus.- One day they lost power entirely in the buffet/dining area for a couple of hours. It is Cuba, roll with it. - My 10 year old loved the freshly made pizza and pasta. My 4 year old refused to eat anything, subsisting on buttered toast for the duration of the stay.
