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!

Wondering

Leaving April 13th, 2017 for Memories Varadero, Cuba. This will be my 15th time to Cuba and my first time to Memories Varadero. My niece & her boyfriend was there in March 10th and they loved it. My bother & his wife just came back a couple of days ago from that resort and they didn't like it. They said their sweets had mildu and their fridge wasn't stocked at all and they tipped well everyday. They said the food was a hit & miss. I'am taking a friend with me, and his first time to Cuba and he's a fussy eater, but I know he'll find something to eat everyday. Just wondering if we made a good choice & pick on this resort? Any info or suggestions when we get there to avoid these things from making this a bad trip for my friend. I know I'll be fine, I'am just worried about him and want him to have a great trip so he'll want to go back.

Fun resort, great beach!

Location was very good, and the beach was one of the nicest ones I have ever visited. Just a short walk away. The resort has 2 pools, a quiet one and a lively with loud music playing, both have swim up bars. Great transport services available if you want to explore a little further, with a hop on/off bus stop located directly outside the resort, (5 CUC each day) and always plenty of taxis to hand, if required. About half an hour bus ride away from Varadero town centre, or a 10 minute ride to the Marina. Both have plenty of bars and restaurants to visit, as well as souvenir shops. About a 2 hour coach ride away from Havana, which can be booked via one of the travel reps in the hotel. The room we stayed in was clean and we were happy with the daily services, housekeeping were always very friendly and helpful if you needed anything extra. Fridge was stocked up each day (we upgraded to Diamond club). Plenty of food to choose from in the buffet restaurant and the à la carte restaurants were very nice, especially the Japanese one. All restaurant and bar staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downsides I would mention is the opening times of the currency exchange was very sporadic and was sometimes difficult to change your money. Also, the wifi which you have to pay for wasn't the best service and often very slow/not working at all. But overall, a great resort. I would recommend.

No orange juice!

I wanted to like this place so badly. I've had my eyes on it all winter and finally booked it as our second trip to Veradero this year. I also try to not take reviews to heart, anything that is mentioned briefly, I tend to look past because accidents do happen and things do break, anywhere. With that being said.. Most of the things mentioned here repetitively are all true. I'll start with the positives here.. The kids staff and the Entertainment staff was amazing, Chiquie, Jamie, Claudia were amazing with my kids. They found my Kids during the day and brought them to the activities, as if they wanted them involved, they always seemed to be having fun and smiling. The food was really good for Cuba food and we didn't go hungry. The 24/7 snack bar helped us out a few times when we were hungry between meals The Japanese a la cart is amazing, they cook the food right in front of you, it's very good entertainment and delicious Having a bank on property is very convenient, but the lines get very long and it takes a long time to get through it. But it's nice that you can get money with a credit card on property. Tip:Make sure you advise your credit card company that you are travelling or you will get locked out and have to pay 2 CUC a minute to call them The Negatives, the room smelt like mildew, there was mold spots on our blankets and it's really run down. I'm pretty sure each condo building only runs off of one 40 gallon got water heater, so our shower, and most other people we spoke with, had a luke warm shower at best. The beds are awful, you can feel the springs. The place is ridiculously unorganized. For a resort so big, you need a bit of organization, but that doesn't happen, everything is a disaster, all the time. There are two buffets, one is only open for breakfast and lunch. One of the days at the day time buffet, the first and second room were full so my family of 4 set our things in this beautiful third outdoor room(not diamond club) . One of the servers told us we had to get out, with no explanation, then forced us to sit at a table for 2 in the crowded, full room. 20 seconds later, 20 more people walked in and they allowed them to sit in the other room. I asked why were couldn't but they could and he rolled his eyes, ignored me and walked away, then avoided us each day after. The beach is beautiful, as it is all of Veradero, but this place has a lot of seashells for about 5 feet walking in, it's very hard on the feet. It's also very very crowded at the beach. A lot of chairs, but not a lot of space. There is no orange juice on this resort?!? My husband and I enjoy sipping on OJ in the morning and I was very upset to learn they don't have orange juice, none of the juice is good. So we resorts to lemonade and Pina Colada until afternoon. The day before we left, we got locked out of our room and safe, for no explained reason. We ended up paying a Bellboy to fix our door, because there is only one maintenance person for over 1000 rooms and he was busy for the night. The next day I had to remind them we still needed to get into our safe, but we ended up pushing a while bunch of buttons and resetting it before they came. Some of the staff here is very helpful, and genuinely want you to have fun, while others have no clue and no customer service. Overall, I would not return to this resort, but I would be willing to try another memories location that would hopefully be smaller and more organized

Memories were Made

Went to Memories March 6 to March 11. There were 24 in our group-teenagers and Mom's and one Dad. My Third trip to Cuba, first for my 18 year old son. We arrived at night and was taken to our rooms right away. There was a mix up with them but we switched up rooms amongst the group. The resort is very big so lots of walking. I saw different rooms, ours needed repairs which would have made it better but the air conditioner worked great and it was cleaned daily. Never spent much time in it anyways. We were in Building 22 close to Lobby, snack bar and quiet pool. Quite a walk to the beach but it's worth it with lots of chairs and shade if needed. Nightly entertainment was awesome. Activity pool would get a bit dirty towards the end of day but that is the Visitors not picking up after themselves. Quiet pool was clean every time we were there. Food was good as were the drinks. Waiting for fresh cooked chicken, beef and chops are worth the wait. Breakfast was always good. Food tends to be the same but we always had lots to eat. Our teenagers had an awesome time, made new friends, (Will and Louis) and so appreciated being there and would love to go back already. Most of our parents had a great time with a few complaints. Our goal was to make wonderful memories at Memories and that we did. Any vacation is what you make it so if you go in miserable then that's what it shall be. I think with some repairs including fixing up the bathrooms, simple painting, and changing the drapes in the rooms would go a long way. Some Reviewers complained about lack of toilet paper but I didn't experience that on the resort but catching a ride on the trolley carts didn't hapoen although our teenage son's managed to catch a ride a few nights with "Ever" and they thought he was awesome. He promised a CD to them of Cuban music and he thoughtfully did give one to my son. Most staff were amazing but at the Buffet it was sometimes hard to get service so we would just get our own coffee in the mornings. Other visitors were the problem, cutting in line, touching or picking up bread with their hands and putting it back, passing at the toast counter and taking toast that wasn't theirs happened to me every morning- no fault of the resort just rude people. I will definately go to Cuba again and again and would go to Memories again if the price is right. I paid way more to stay at Memories compared to my previous 2 trips to Cuba and was expecting better but by Day 3 I learned to like many things at Memories. Again, we made memories to last a lifetime.

Good thing there was sun...

This was my 5th trip to Cuba so believe me I knew what to expect. Travelled with my husband and kids 3 and 12. Really wish I had listened to the negative reviews before we left as there were bang on. I usually don't listen to reviews and regretted it this time for sure.The food was average as expected but what was disappointing was the service (or lack there of) in the buffet. Dinner was ok but getting a drink at breakfast and lunch was almost out of the question if you could find a clean table. We had to clear dishes off one table ourselves just to have somewhere to sit. My daughter fell in the dining area as one of the drink machines was leaking everywhere.Public bathroom areas were a disgrace. They were smelly and lacking of toilet paper. I can overlook most things but not this. If you want locks on the bathrooms go elsewhere I didn't see one the whole time were were there.The pool had water and lots of other stuff as well. Never once saw someone cleaning the pool and there was so much stuff (cigarette butts included) floating around. I can look past cracked tiles and dated facilities but the cleanliness of this resort was horrible.The grounds were amazing. Gardeners hard at work 24/7. Wish they would have traded in a gardener or 2 for some light bulbs and toilet paper. Grounds were very dark. Lots of light fixtures around just no bulbs.Yes the beds suck but I could deal with the bruises from the springs.On the plus side the entertainment was great and there was always something going on and lots of music. The beach is amazing and I never once got bugged by someone selling something. Bar service was great never had to wait long.Save yourself the disappointment and go elsewhere. Had a much better time at Tryp Cayo coco.Will not return EVER!!! Probably will never even try another Memories resort anywhere.
