“Best in Cuba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Memories was the absolute best resort we have stayed in Cuba. The rooms were super clean and the staff excellent especially the day we had water issues in our room. The buffet food is good the a la carte restaurants even better. 6 out of 5 stars!

Great resort. The beach is amazing and clean. The staff is very polite and always ready to help you. You can easily find something to eat as there was a lot of choice at the buffet. The only negative thing is that there were tiny ants in our room.

The total value, service and experience of this hotel is way over expected! It is hard to imagine to get it better for the price. Food is good with good selection. Staff was amazing and ready to help you with any request.

Room Tip: Do some night swim in the pool with LED lights. It is not forbidden and water is nice.

Went there in the spring 2013 and liked it. Then we went again in 2014 and we found that it is even better. The resort became cleaner and food is awesome, especially when you order to cook selected pieces for you,

Great resort. This was our first time down south and it was an amazing deal for a week vacation stay. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Room was always cleaned properly.

Food was great, we got to experience a little bit. I was very limited with what I could eat due to being Celiac (gluten intelorance) but the waiters were always helpful if I had questions. We didn't speak much spanish so we had something that translated our questions concerning the food. For myself, the choices did get repetitive but for someone who can eat anything and isn't picky, there are tons of variety.

My only suggestion for this resort is to bring at least 2 bottle of suncreen and bring a bottle of bug repellant. We bought the one at their boutique (because we forgot to bring some) but it made things worse since they put perfume in it. Bugs just seem to love me so, I went to bed with minimum 20 bites every night even though they seemed to spray the resort every night with a cloud of smoke to kill them.

We only did the catamaran excursion and it was well worth the money. Very fun!

The shows at night were mostly entertaining. We were looking forward to the Pirate one but they kept moving it to another night until finally it was pushed to the next week, so we never got to see it. The horror show was the least entertaining one, we left half way through.

It was very windy when we went but talking with people on the resort, most said that it usually is in May. The waves were bigger and you couldn't really see the bottom of the ocean but the weather was perfect. We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Rooms near the kids pool is quieter at night. Top floor rooms also quieter.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from April 28th to May 12th. As far as the Resort....I have no complaints. Awesome staff, room very clean, no complaints about the food. We were in Bungalow 51 right outside the main Lobby, so we had excellent accommodations (other than having to walk up 4 flights of stairs to get to our room). My only complaint was rude guests. The staff here did an excellent job of trying to accommodate you in anyway they could, and for some people I guess it just wasn't enough. Thank you Memories for our wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: If you want to be kind of close to the main lobby, Bungalow 51 is excellent. We were on the third fl...
