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!

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • BradBee96 :
Very Average Resort. Will not be returning.

This was my second time in Cuba, and was by far the worst of the resorts I have stayed at there. I previously stayed at the Blau Resort several years ago, and was very content with this resort. Room: The room was very average. Broken T.V, Broken Shower Curtain, Very Uncomfortable Beds (Reminds me of cots i have slept on many times). The first night my girl friend and I arrived at the resort late, and went to bed. When we woke up in the morning we had BUG BITES all over our calves of our legs. We did not go to the beach that prior night so had a feeling that we may have gotten these bites from inside our bed. On a positive note, the Room Cleaner did a great job cleaning our room each day, the majority of times leaving shaped towels such as swans and fish on our bed.Staff: Overall the staff at this resort were very nice, approachable and friendly. However I felt like anything that was done at the all "inclusive" resort it was expected to give a tip. Whether it was getting a ride on the cart that drove around picking people up around the resort (as the resort is very spaced out) , getting drinks from the bar, or getting served at the buffet. I felt if we did not tip, the waitresses/ bar tenders/ driver got upset and would roll their eyes. Many staff members will also try to sell you FAKE cigars. Resort: The majority of public bathrooms had no toilet paper, all the locks were broken on the doors, and the bathrooms were very dirty. Asides from several broken down walk way lights, the rest of the resort was very nice. Grass and plants kept nicely trimmed and each day looked very nice. We were in Building 30 right by the beach (had a great view).Food: Food was not to bad. Guaranteed to find something you will like. Power consistently went out several times a day, but really not a big deal. Lots of fish for food, and each day the buffet has very similar food, really no differences from day to day. Birds always eating out of buffet and flying around the buffet. Even though i did not see bird poop in the food, bird poop was seen on the floor, so could be possible. Entertainment: Very good. From magic shows, to dancing shows, was very well done for entertainment.Bar: The bartenders always put huge amounts of alcohol in the drinks. Ensure to ask for a little bit of alcohol when getting mixed drinks.Other: Had a sick stomach the majority of the time i was there and was on the toilet every couple hours. I think the food played a big part in this.

Returning guest going back in April

I have been to Cuba many times (more that 15 within the family) and have stayed at various memories resorts throughout. Enjoyed every one. This resort is very organized and is able to handle the large amount of guests they have trolley carts to help you get around the resort if you have mobility issues. I never had an issue with a five min walk to get anywhere. It's calmingRemember this is Cuba so if you see a damaged path light it was most likely damaged by some drunk idiot and they have to wait for parts to fix things. It's not like they can just drive over to the Home Depot. They do the very best they can with very little resources. If a damaged pot light is your biggest complaint your a bit pretentious. Our chamber lady was awesome very attentive. A bottle of tylonol will get you a lot more than a cucBoris the bar tender is a delight as always. Coffee in the lobby is second to none. Best we have had in veradero. The Japanese restaurant was a hit with the kids. Beach is fantastic and they keep it very clean. We have stayed at the Blau Bresas and would not go back there even though they are rated higher. Our experience was much better at memories hence we will be there in 10 weeks again. But who's counting lol

  • Ever R :

Amazing visit

My partner and I stayed at Memories last February (2016) and had an amazing time. It was our first time away together and away from our children. We were impressed with how friendly and accommodating the staff was, from the waitress to the room attendants and even the gardeners. The room was clean and attended to everyday, far better than we've had with Canadian hotels. The waitress' were always attentive and the gardeners friendly and always had a smile. The food wasn't what we were used to but we certainly found out favorites. Our best memory was one day with a terrible rain storm and had us stuck in the lobby, we were not disappointed, the night was full of entertainment and we were greatly impressed with how the resort handle bringing the entertainment to the guests. We had such a great time that we are planning our second trip back to Memories Varadero in a few weeks. We have had a terrible year of loss and are very much looking forward to returning to a happy and friendly place.

Great week away

Went too Memories from Jan 8 - 15 2017 on a last minute get away. Huge resort about 15min walk from ocean too reception at the other end.Accommodation : we got a great room 31317 near the ocean end, always hot water, freshly painted, updated bathroom, flat screen TV. ( poor reception ) air conditioning worked great. Only issue toilet was slow to flush and fill up. Had a small lizard living outside the room in a hole in the hall roof a few nice pics. Could also see the ocean from afar even though it was garden view.Entertainment : shows where great specially the Micheal Jackson tribute, some dancers were very talented with difficult flips. Didn't use kids club as just me and girlfriend. Some daytime shows at the main pool.Pools : says there are 5 more like 2 and 2 small kids pools 1 jacuzzi which was broken the whole week girlfriend was disappointed. Pools are huge and ,lots of seating and umbrellas. Bars at pools great 2. Water was cold weather was breezy and not too hot.Food: decent food lots of options. Buffy was OK long .Ines for fresh cooked food. Lots of A LA Carter choices, didn't like Mexican tacos with just beef and a shell, Italian was our favourite.Staff: great friendly staffDiamond Club : Worth the upgrade Overall: great resort needs a few renos, public washrooms kept breaking down and were locked often, broken fountains and path lights, lots of cosmetic stuff. Don't go unless you like walking it's massive property. Worth the trip for sure.
