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!

Select another hotel

I wasn't going to bother reviewing this hotel, it was my first vacation to Cuba & afterwards felt it would be the last. I did re-evaluate this sentiment & decided to give another area & hotel a try. It was wonderful so I'm writing this to suggest if you are considering booking Memories Varedaro, don't. The positive's- it was January & we did have good weather, the beach was great but that's all. The beach was at least a mile walk from our room. Beach loungers were saggy & uncomfortable. Pools are large & seemed clean enough, poolside tables were chipped & rusted. The entire resort needed a sprucing up.The central gathering area outside the main dining had no fans & there were many smokers so it was humid & smoky, little pesky biting flies of some sort. The Dining room was large, noisey & hot. Food was served buffet style, it was not so great, vegetables were pickled, except for cucumbers & tomatoes. fruits were mostly the melon type & canned, meats heavily cured or deep fried, I was totally off any food or drink by day 4. Speaking of drinks it was a free pour but I believe the alcohol was diluted. We did try the "Japanese" & also an"Italian" restaurant. it was quieter & food was a slight improvement but not great. Our room was terrible. We had to keep the curtains pulled because it was directly on the path, we did have a balcony but no chairs. We noticed a stream of water coming down the wall, it took a day for someone to check this out & I happened to be in the room when the service people arrived. They removed a ceiling tile & immediately drained a bucket of brownish liquid. The man used toilet paper to mop up moisture & proceeded to through this wet paper beside the pipes then replaced the tile. The bedding was worn & was either stained or not too clean. The mattress on each bed were needing replacement.Our toilet stopped flushing early in the stay but that never was addressed. The bathroom tiles had areas of black mould. It was all very disgusting.We did look @ reviews when we were booking & nothing stood out. I am writing this to save you from making the same mistake.

Never again

Horrible trip. Day 1 door didn't lock had a drunk come in the room in the middle of the night day 2 found roaches in the room, they gave me a can of spy and told me to spray. Everyday I either didn't get clan towels, garbage wasn't changed or I didn't get clean sheets. Constantly had to go to front desk to fix room key at one point I was stuck outside for a few hours cause no one wanted to help me. My shower leaked so I couldn't use it because again no one wanted to help.. fridge wasn't working so couldn't store anything for my 2 year old son. I will say the kids fun club has amazing people working there who really work well with ur children wether your there or not.. food was horrible but to be expected. Entertainment was ok. They didn't promote so lots of times entrainment got canc cause no one knew about it.. if ur going to Cuba I would recommend anywhere but veradero, they have stop caring and taking care of their place..

I wouldn't return..

Room: The worst part about this resort. We arrived to sheets that were extremely stained, a terrible musty smell (I know a lot of rooms at many resorts that have musty smells and I normally don't complain, but this one was terrible). I went to the front desk to get new sheets and house keeping arrived within 20 minutes with clean ones. We had no hot or warm water until day 4, mosquitos EVERYWHERE in the room, no matter how many were killed, they some how multiplied which left us with lots of bites. The beds were quite comfortable. Overall, the room was quite dirty and was in MUCH need of an upgrade. Our maid was very nice and helpful, she always made sure we had bottled water, toilet paper and towels in our room. Our safe broke and took a whole day for someone to come and fix it, so we were carrying our important belongings with us all day.I recommend bringing air fresheners (like you would hang in your car) for the room.Food: Food was pretty good, it's typical Cuba food. I did not go hungry, but didn't find there was much of selection. Japanese & Italian A La Cartes were fantastic!! They're a must.Pool & Beach: I went once in the pool & it was very dirty... Chunks of hair, band aids and things you don't want to be swimming in.. Gross... The beach was perfect. LOTS of palapas and chairs. Fairly clean beach too, not much seaweed and someone came through every morning to clean things up.We had to take a visit to the doctor due to bad bites, and the doctor was very helpful and nice. (I recommend bringing benedryl itch cream!!)The grounds are really nice & taken care of. Every day we saw many workers keeping up with the grounds.Service overall was pretty good. The front desk had a really hard time communicating in English, which I know, I'm in Cuba, so I can't complain. We had a couple different servers in the buffet and they knew who we were when we walked into the sitting area. They always had a table reserved for us and greeted us with a smile, every single meal. We typically tipped 1$ per person (6 of us) every buffet meal and found we got amazing service. The Internet worked pretty well in certain spots and was only 2$ for an hour.Feel free to ask any questions.

Family trip

The resort is huge and well maintained. The food was okay although you need to get there early if you don't want to be waiting for plates. Also, keep in mind you can't really sleep in if you want breakfast since it's over at 10am (they close the doors). They offer burgers, hotdogs, fries, and pasta if you do miss breakfast by the pools on site. The entertainment was good and the drinks were amazing. I'd recommend "memories" if you like sweet cocktails. However most of the staff weren't very polite (mainly the front desk and store staff). The beach was very clean and I liked that they have a bar and food there too. It's kid friendly since they have shows and activities during the day for them but my son was too busy in the pool on the slide. I didn't see any kids lifejackets so bring one just in case. Bringing one for my son made it more enjoyable for us because we didn't have to worry as much as we would without one. All in all it was a fun vacation. I wish they had wifi all over the resort but it's limited to the lobby area for 2 CUCs.
