      “The wonderful staff fail to make this place worth coming back. ”
      The service was wonderful, but the product lacking. Our room was standard. There was a lamp shade missing, no screen door to the porch [ couldn't leave door open as the mosquitoes were everywhere], no coffee maker [as advertised] and then they removed the sheer privacy curtains to be cleaned a day into our stay and returned only the day before departure, despite calls of complaint. The food was so bland..salt and pepper the extent of their spices. No condiments beside mustard and ketchup even when asked. The availability of certain foods haphazard. One day, no potatoes, the next no cucumbers. The fruit had no flavour and choice scanty. Also the specialty restaurants were hohum. The resort caters to families but there was no quiet area without loud music and announcements for games etc both at the pool and the beach. I will only consider a 5 star hotel in Cuba from now on. This one was 4 star.

      “Older resort, but good value for the price! ”
      A nice inexpensive resort. We went to relax and enjoy the beach, which we did. The beach was awesome and we walked every day for hours on the sandbars. There is a bar and snack service on the beach as well. You have to try the pizza on the beach it was excellent. The service and hotel staff are wonderful, but the resort is dated and in need of some updating. Our room was clean with good air conditioning and the buffet was the usual Cuban selection. The smoothies at breakfast were great and the stir fry bar at night was a nice option. Being a small resort it is a short walk to everything. If you want a quiet inexpensive vacation this is a nice place to go.

      “Great Beach, Awful Food ”
      In Cayo Coco, It feels like you can't win. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. , with white sand and shallow clear water. Many little fish swimming around you. The pool is big , one separated into two . With a swim up bar and pool bar. Can't go wrong with the entertainment either. However the food is awful. Go for the beach, with a suitcase full of food .

      “Second time in this hotel, what a change,, ”
      Second time in this hotel, but no improvment for the food, i would even say except the morning breakfast the buffet was worst, a lot of good meals that were there last years dissapear, no more shrimps, the meat was mixed with a very strange cubain salsa , that has no taste, yes we know cuba is cuba but lots of things changed. one day FF next day none, sugar cinamon in pancakes same thing one day yes next day no . They organized a supper near the pool for peoples that were there last year.. soup and lobsters was served.. The soup was not drinkable and the lobster was not cooked, the rice looked like a marmelade and the whole plate was cold. awful for the suppositly good clients.. This year we hit 3 days rain, the beach was full of seawees and Jelly fish, We have to give good credit to the staff, always smiling and ready to accomodate at the buffet and in the bars, nothing to say,, Check your change when you buy at the boutique, we caught the teller cheating,,Another inconvenient is sunwing, we had to be at the airport around 3 olock for 6.30 departure,bring yourself something to eat as meals served on the plane not better than valentine, another rip off we had to buy water bottle at $ 3.00 plus the exchange in pésos, if you have us funds that you bought at 14 per cent it will cost 15 per cent more which is around 30 per cent, take my adviise , dont buy anything there. 25 pesos pp for return.. iWe never met the maid who made our room, Soap was missing 2 days, We were Lucky to have brought our own soap, the maid does not the room before 3.00 o clock.. another negative thing, some beach towels had wholes and they were used to the cord.. of course not everything is bad.. the night shows were very nice and the entertainers staff were good. The resort grounds are kept in good conditions and very clean but careful ther is a lot of mosquitos that we dont even see, only when they bite you.. bring a big bugspray and after bite lotion..they are vicious..specially if you attend the beach supper.. once a week on monday night.. Thats our feeling, feel fre to make your own experience but I am not going back to this hotel.,

      “The beach is the best. ”
      We got to the air port in Cuba to find they had no record of us going to the Memories Caribe,After getting to the restort they gave us room 1215 on the second floor,then at night we found out we where right behind the disco,when we booked our trip we asked for aground floor in a quite place of the resort. On Oct 23 our 49th anniversary we had booked the Italian rest.for 7P.M.got there they had closed it you would think you should have been told this at sometime when they knew they where to close it. The room was a good size.had the A/C fixed but they are on timers they go off in the the morning at some time and come back on at 5:30 P.M. As for the beach its the best beach in Cuba. Food we had bacon at breakfast 1 day out of 14 days but there is always something to eat all the time. The grounds are well kept & clean. Take lots of bug spray with you. The pools are good wit snack bar at the pool is great. Loby bar or piano bar is good they know how to mix drinks all the workers there are great too get you anything you want.

      “Love the hotel and everything, except the beach ”
      This was my 8th trip to Cuba, and by far this hotel had the best and cleanest rooms I have had yet. Furniture was very nice and in good shape and the king sized bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Scrupulously clean and no ants. Food is average Cuban - pretty bland and the usual recycling of food which doesn't normally bother me, but when I saw the same shrimps day after day, it made me wonder how safe they were for eating. A nice touch is the churros which are freshly made during the day at the Pina Colada bar. and something neat I never saw before - a serve yourself bloody mary/screwdriver table at the morning buffet and a spanish coffee station at the buffet most evenings. The two a la carte restaurants we visited were nothing to write home about. The staff throughout the hotel are wonderful and they work so hard to please their guests. The pool and grounds are extremely clean and very well kept. Night time entertainment is varied and of high quality. I was however extremely disappointed with the beach - very narrow and crowded, not what I was expecting. There was a lot of seaweed washed up during our first two days, but that's mother nature - not much they can do about that (although they did take 2 days to clean it up). Got lots of mosquito bites, so not sure if they spray or not. I don't think I would return to this hotel, but only because of the location. Everything else was perfect.

      “Great time at Memories ”
      We really liked this resort! My husband and I traveled here with our 2.5 month old daughter and it was great!! Key thing to remember is IT'S CUBA! I will say that over and over. By that I mean, if you've been to other countries, you cannot expect it to be the same. It's not. In some ways I wouldn't say it's as nice but in other ways it far exceeds other caribbean countries. Food-- Good! One buffet with fresh omelet/egg stations, fresh waffle/pancake station, made to order smoothies, cereal, fruit, meats, vegetables etc for breakfast. For lunch and dinner the egg stations become meat/seafood stations and the waffle one becomes a pasta station. Dinner always has a carving station with some sort of meat. Don't be too shy to utilize these stations as they are worth the wait. Sometimes they have the same things in buffet pans but its better fresh off the grill. Snack bar has hot dogs, hamburgers, pizzas, grilled ham&cheese sandwiches and fries. On our last day they had fresh cut potato chips too! Some of the quality of the meats or fruit are not what we are used to in Canada but again, it's Cuba. I've been to another resort in Cuba and this was much better. Beach- Perfect!! LOTS of chairs and sunshades. Powdery white sand and beautiful blue water. You can walk down it for hours. Lots of sandbars to wade out to. ** a storm came one night so the next morning the beach was COVERED in seaweed but they were out there at 9am the next morning with a tractor clearing it all away. So to the people who have complained about this in other reviews, just FYI they can't help mother nature. I'd say they do a darn good job at accommodating for it though!! Location-- Make sure you realize that Cayo Coco is an island which is strictly for tourism/resorts. No cubans live here. They all drive an hour to come to the resorts to work. That being said, if you want to go into a town or city, you will have to pay to go on an excursion to the mainland. Room-- Fine. Not great. we had two double beds and I have a hard time believing they were doubles. They seemed smaller. No fitted sheets so they kept slipping off. Sometimes the sheets had a small hole in them or something. Could have used some maintaining. Air conditioning worked well...almost too well actually! We turned it off sometimes. Maids were WONDERFUL and did an excellent job. Service-- I left this until last but it was really the best part. I can't recall ONE bad experience with the service. We were met at the airport by the General Manager who was SO kind and took the time to stop and talk to everyone and ask if everything was ok. We saw her every day around the resort working. Servers at the buffet/bars were always quick, polite and on top of things. Construction was being done around the main pond/paths so you can tell they are trying to keep the place in nice condition. We would definitely go there again.

      This resort is no 5 star but the staff was excellent and the food was good. We ate mostly in the Buffet and there was a good variety. The resort overall is clean but needs updating. There is work going on and it looks like they are improving the overall apperience

      “Wonderful Staff, Beach, Grounds ”
      Travelled November 6-13/14, with Sunwing, late arrival, check in for room done at airport saved time lining up at hotel desk. Bonus that hotel was only a 15 minute ride from airport. Weather sunny, hot daily ,no humidity, beach cleaned daily except for 1 day not till late. Beware of sand fleas at beach by late afternoon and mosquitos in evening. No amount of bug spray kept them away if you are prone to bites, bring your anti itch creams and Benadryl this was the only issue. Staff was very friendly and accomodating, Food was good compared to other Cuban resorts in the past. Entertainment shows great, Water Ballet and Michael Jackson tribute. The property grounds were immaculate, rooms were clean but could use update in decor and bathroom lighting. Great value for this time of year and would return.

      “" Best family vacation ever " ”
      Oct 30 Nov 6 2014 family of 8 ,we read de reviews and went with open mind and it was better than expected. The beach is awesome ours 4 grandkids love it, pizza and sandwiches were delicious , bar was plenty and with quality brands, the stands set up very handy. Rooms , we have 3 in block 22 they were spacious , clean and everything works, huge bathroom hot water at all times good pressure, nice size balcony table and chairs. Pool, we have 2 windy days so the family option was the pool, plenty of chairs, clean waters the ice cream shop and churros was a hit with kids and adults alike. Food, ours 5 time in Cuba , food and snacks was better than others comparable 4* resorts we've been to before. At the Buffet we always have the choice of beef, pork, chicken, seafood, pastas, veggies and desserts . Restaurants, the Mediterranean was the acceptable one , the Cuban and Italian ( beach) felt short not worth visiting, compare the buffet is a better choice. Entertainment was very good specially Michael Jackson and the aquatic show , they have a Halloween night , ours grandkids participate and they have a awesome time. The staff at the kids club where superb, friendly and responsible with the children's . Lobby Bar, excellent very relaxing, outstanding piano man , when after the second day the waitress serve you at the table cappuccinos at morning and delicious Spanish coffee at night without you asking for them , that said they already know yours taste and try to serve you the best . Love Cuba and their people! . Special mention to the manager Noelia, she is everywhere , at the airport to welcome you , walking the restaurants ,buffet, bars making sure everything is ok for the vacationers , also Belen and her smile ready to help you at all times . Special mention to the staff they are great at all levels , they always have a "HOLA" or a smile for you , will be back for sure.

      “A fine resort and good value”
      This is a lovely resort. The grounds are kept clean and are well-tended. And of course the people are lovely, very warm and friendly. The beach: nice, but at this time of year there were a fair number of jellyfish, so one had to be watching constantly while in the water. For this reason, we spent more time at the pool than at the beach. And we really enjoyed the pool. The food: we could always find good food at the buffet, though some might say it was a little repetitious. The 3-egg omelets were very good! Again, the staff were very nice. (We really appreciated Yunel's service.) We were here for our 40th wedding anniversary. When we mentioned this, we were given an extra 'a la carte' restaurant meal, and a beautifully decorated cake! Thank you. The only excursion we did was the glass bottom boat, which took us out to a nice snorkeling spot. The dead bolt in the door of our room was totally missing when we got there! However, we mentioned it the next day at the lobby, and when we got back from the pool, it was fixed!!! Well done. Flying with Sunwing was a good experience.

      “Great Resort, Location, Staff and Management! ”
      My girlfriend and I decided to have a short break from the Casa-Particular circuit to enjoy this amazing Cayo. We were skeptical about being in a resort, but we were wrong and enjoyed every minute of it: the beaches in the area, the drinks, the food, the staff and the management, in the person of Noelia Delgado Lopez, who made sure we felt happy and confortable and would enjoy our stay. Our thanks go especially to her, to the staff of the buffet-restaurant, to the cleaners who left our room in an impeccable state, to the entertainment team (Animation) and Yaeleen from the Cuban restaurant, who gave us the right tips to have a lovely dinner and made us leave the restaurant with a big smile. Muchisimas gracias a tod@s, chic@s

      “Great Vacation ”
      My husband and I just returned home from memories Caribe beach resort. We had an amazing vacation. The staff are all very friendly from the front desk to the gardeners and everyone in between. The one issue we had with the lock on our patio door was immediately fixed when we called the front desk. Noelia is doing a wonderful job with the resort, her energy is contagious. Our maid Tahimy made sure our room was clean and the cute little "towel animals" made us smile every day. The food was good for Cuba although a little more selection would have been great. The beach and pool were fantastic places to spend the day and the evening entertainment was very good. We both highly recommend Memories Caribe.

      Just came back yesterday, this was our 2nd vacation in Cayo Coco, First in Memories Caribe. We stayed 10 days, other than 2 days of windy sea, our stay was perfect from the start to the end. Arriving at the air port you will be greeted by the General Manager Noelia Delgado, I cannot say enough about her, she is dynamic, energetic general manager you will see her every where and all around asking you if you need help, how r u, all that with smile, and she will also see you at the bus for departure to the air port. As for the rest, Room clean and nice thanks to Wilda, Ground and garden beautiful, food you will find something you like and eat, beach crystal clear with the exception of last two days mother nature was very angry and wind. We will be back and I highly recommend this resort without hesitation. Thank you Noelia.

      “Great People, Great Beach, Great Experience ”
      My boyfriend and I stayed at this resort from October 24th until October 31st. We are both 25 years of age and we flew with Sunwing. I have been to Cuba, Dominican Republic and Mexico whereas this was my partner's first trip to Cuba (and first trip to a beach, ever!). This will hopefully be a helpful review/guide for people considering coming to Memories Caribe as I found the reviews here helpful when I decided to choose which resort to stay! This is going to be a very long review so prepare yourself. Sunwing: The flight there was extremely tiring as our flight was leaving at 6:15 and thus we have to be at the airport by 3:00amish, meaning no sleep. The in-flight meal consists of your choice of sandwich, drink and a biscuit (which wasnt too bad). The Sunwing Rep at our resort was helpful and accomodating. She answered most of our questions and was always accessible. When you arrive, the busride is a short 15-20 minute ride so it's pretty nice. Resort: The resort itself is quite small compared to the other ones I've been to. I liked this because it was easy to walk from one place to another. The resort grounds are kept in very good condition and I rarely saw any trash on the floor. Groundskeepers are very nice and if you give them a peso or two theyll give you a coconut to drink from : ) The Entertaiment staff are very good and there's really always something to do when you're on the resort. They are constantly organizing activities or games in the main pool area and even when you're eating at the buffet, the entertainment staff will come and entertain you. The general manager is very nice and she genuinely seems to care about the clients. She introduced herself to most people and asked specific questions regarding how we were enjoying our vacation. She's also really pretty and well dressed haha. The only downside about the resort and this time of the year was the MOSQUITOS. They were absolutely vicious. We had a italian beach dinner .. which is on the beach and we couldn't even sit through it as my partner got 10+ bites in the first 20 minutes of our meal. I highly recommend bugspray..but I don't think it was very effective. I saw many people with multiple bites on their legs. Luckily, the bites subside after a day or two and don't stay itchy forever. Staff: Staff are really great. Very friendly. Servers remember your order and are so accomodating. A tip is to sit at the same table in the buffet area so you get the same server. We were lucky to have Juan as our server as he was so great. He would remember our drink order, was super attentive, and even pulled out my chair so I could sit a couple of times. The piano bar servers are also super nice and I always love the cappucinos served there. Our cleaning lady was also very good and did a good job cleaning. The only downside was that the sheets did have stains on them and they weren't changed so that was a downer. Another downer was the luggage man on our first day. As it rained on our first day and we were exhausted from the flight, we weren't in a cheery mood upon arrival. What was nice about the resort is that they you first arrive in your room and your luggage will be personally delivered! The luggage man came, and dropped off our stuff..and then they proceeded to stay hovering at the door clearly expecting a tip. We explained that we just got here and thus have no CUC's to give them and he said he could accept canadian. We didn't have coins or anything smaller than a 20..so he said to give him the 20 and hell give us back change. So we ended up tipping 5 dollars Canadian cause he has no other change and we felt bullied and really unhappy about that experience. I hope this man with glasses doing luggage realizes that he makes one of the first impressions and bullying tourists to tip was really upsetting. We felt very uncomfortable as they hovered near the front door of our room. We obviously opted to carry our own luggage on our last day. Other than this, the rest of the staff was truly amazing. Beach: One of the reasons we chose to come here is Memories Caribe has the BEST BEACH! Just breathtaking and amazing and you can walk to on either side and be carried away by the beauty :) Tip: the number one beach in the area is Pillar Beach. The Front Desk has the bus schedule and it costs 5 dollars round trip to get there! Highly Recommend.!. Sunwing has an excursion there for 24 pesos and it gets you lunch and a chair..but I'd say the $5 bus ride was pretty worth it! Food: I honestly thought the food was pretty good. I'm not a picky eater and I always found something to eat at dinner, lunch and breakfast. Their own version of ketchup is pretty darn good and their pizza and fries..and honestly probably better than the fries I've had in Canada. The beach bar has burgers, hot dogs and pizza (the pizza is made fresh in front of you by the way). My favorite was breakfast as they make you fresh fruit smoothies, omelettes, waffles and pancakes! I don't think I'd recommend the a la carte restaraunt. We went to both the italian and the mediterranean..and it was alright. I really enjoyed the variations of rice and their desserts are honestly very good. Their butter is also so good. Excursions: We went on the Catamaran trip (79 or so pesos), The Jeep Excursion (95 or so), and Horseback riding. We enjoyed the excursions thoroughly and they are very much worth your money. The tour guides are awesome and speak three languages. They also have a cave party event which I hear was also pretty awesome. If you go horseback riding...this is mosquito central and I got the majority of my bites from here. Entertainment: Shows every night. Most nights are different themes held by the resort dancers. Very good at what they do. Can be repetitive. However, on two of the nights the entertainment was from two diff companies: the aqua ballet and the michael jackson show are must sees! Room: We got the Superior Balcony Suite. I always do second floor to avoid the creepy crawlies going into your room. Our room was very clean, but worn. There are cracks and holes in places but it was still very clean. On our last day we did encounter two cockroaches (thank god it was the last day). Tv works perfectly and the bed was actually pretty comfortable. Spa: I did a relaxation massage for 50 minutes for only 30 pesos! Very reasonable. Louis was the masseuse and he did a good job. The room however could be better. It was very bright and no backbround noise/music making it a bit awkward. If you read throught all of that, I commend you on your patience haha.Overall, we got this trip on such a good deal that it was honestly worth every penny. Every resort has its pros and cons and this resort is honestly very good with regards to staff, beach and quality of care! Thank you Memories Caribe : )

      “The beach is absolutely gorgeous!! ”
      The beach of this hotel is beautiful! Very shallow with white sand and very clear water. Because it's shallow, the water is nice and warm! And even though we don't have kids, I kept thinking how great this place is for families! One day we walk to neighboring a 5-star hotel about 20 min along the beach and were shocked by their completely inaccessible shore - sharp rocks preventing people from going into the water... The food was fine, but could have been a bit more diverse (which is typical to Cuba). I still enjoyed it just because I didn't have to cook :) The service was great - everyone very friendly and absolutely no pressure - no one ever tried selling us cigars. One thing you may want to bring is a mosquito spray. In October there were lots of them!

      I just came back from Memories Caribe. This vacation was important for us and we wanted it to be perfect?. and it was. It was a very nice touch to be personally welcomed by the General Manager Noelia at the airport. Staff and Management were always friendly and very attentive to guest?s needs. We spent most of our day at the beach.. which is gorgeous. The beach staff was amazing: Special thanks to Giovanny, Jorge, Roberto and Luis. Our room attendant (Maite) was very kind, always with a big smile on her face. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. The gardeners are all very friendly as well. I would like to share all the names of the staff that made our vacation special: Daniel (Snack bar), Yudi and Leo (entertainment), Jennifer and Damaris (Buffet Restaurant), Dailen (Sales Manager), Alejandro and Belen from Management. If you have the time, visit Playa Pilar. It is an amazing beach with turquoise waters and the whitest and thinnest sand I have ever seen. There is a bus service for only $ 5.00 round trip. We recommend this resort to anybody looking for a place to relax + beautiful beach + friendly staff. That is what matters to us, and we will be back!!

      “I went for a relaxing vacation and that's exactly what I got ”
      I was there just a few weeks ago with my family and are already planning our next trip back. It started off great by being greated with our room keys and information by the manager of the hotel Noellia (hopefully spelt right). The staff were friendly and easy to talk to and get along with. The hotel/rooms were clean. And layout was great. The beach was amazing and the pool was great as well. Good was good. Entertainment was amazing. Great shows for everyone. They also had shows for kids to participate in, which my niece loved and joined in. She was nervous at first but they girls made her feel welcomed and happy. Overall it was an amazing trip. I would reccomend this resort to anyone going to Cuba.

      “Second Time in this Hotel ”
      I just came back from another 2 weeks at Memories Caribe. My second time in this Resort. No need to say that the beach is beautiful. Yes there was sea weeds but that's nature. There is nothing this Resort can do about that. They worked so hard to remove them. All staff helped, even Noelia. Bravo for the team work. I cannot comment on the a la carte restaurants, I prefer the buffet which provides a variety of food. Just be creative. We were in the Club Diamond and we were offered a lunch at the El Coral on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The fist is to die for. Very delicious. Yes it's true, moskitos are bad on days with no wind, just be prepared. The staff is mostly the reason I went back. Every one is smiling and singing. The service is excellent. The animation is everywhere. Keep up the good work. A big thank you for the good service at the beach. In the Snack Bar, thank you Yssell, Daniel and Kendra for your excellent work and Migrey at the buffet, your the best. We are planning on going back this winter. See you in February.

      “AWESOME BEACH..GREAT TIME ”
      We travelled from Nov 6-13th and have to say that the weather was just perfect. We've been in Cayo Coco in September and its too hot. This time of year is perfect. Around 28-30 degrees and night time is around 24 degrees. I'll be honest, the hotel could use ALOT of updating. If you can see past that, you will have a great time. My room was on Block 19 and we were on the main floor, lots of tiny ants on the toilet seat in the washroom as well as on the bathroom counters. Our TV didn't work well. But who goes to Cuba to watch TV? I found several staff were very friendly while others seem to click with the partiers and at some points, we were very frustrated because it would take over 10 minutes for servers in the snack bar to acknowledge us and a lot of the times we just got up and left. Special mention to the buffet servers Michael and I forgot her name but its the girl that serves with Michael were so sweet and as soon as they saw us would put tables together and remember our drink orders. The beach was amazing. That's why we come every year. No matter where you go, you will never find a beach like this for the price you pay. Overall, we all had a great time. The aquatic show and Michael Jackson show were a must see. I would go back again. LOTS OF MOSQUITOS that itch forever :) bring after bite.

      “Heck of a trip ... in a good way”
      Just came back yesterday from a weeks vacation at the Memories Caribe beach resort. All in all, great vacation. The weather was incredible and even some times it was too hot ( I know how can I say that ). The staff was incredible, they were all extremely polite and welcoming. I really enjoyed having the general manager ask us twice during our stay how it was and if everything was ok. The entertainment staff was the bomb, Julie and Ariel were amazing, to olympics on the beach, to dancing, to CRAZY game times and just all laughs. The entertainment and shows at night, were awesome, my favorite was the Michael Jackson tribute one on Wednesday night. The food was ok, let's just say many people tell you not to expect too much from Cuban food, but I can say that I didn't starve. My favorite was the pasta bar at the buffet and the stir fry station. I didn't really touch the buffet already cooked food in the middle of the buffet just cause it didn't really look appealing but the 5-10 minutes wait to have my pasta and beef cooked in front of me was well worth it. The breakfast was disapointing.. I always expect in Caribbean Islands to have a huge fruit buffet and there wasn't a great selection at this resort. The a la cartes were good, my favorite one was the Arenas Blancas. The beach ... let's talk about the beach......... WOW WOW WOW. to die for. We ended up taking a two hour walk on sand bars in the middle of ocean to reach a pier where we found huge shells and star fish (cool experience). The water was so crystal clear I couldnt get over it. and the fun part of it all is that it wasn't hard to get chairs at the beach any time during the day. I remember last year in Mexico if you didn't get up at 7am to go put your towel on a chair you had no chair, so that was good. The pool was also fantastic and the servers who come to your lounge chair and bring you drinks were clutch. I didn't have time to finish my drink and they were there for another drink... that was fantastic. The rooms were older but they were clean. I suggest they change the sheets or at least take the sand out of the sheets since it made it quite uncomfortable. Overall I loved my vacation and would definitely suggest it to people and definitely go back!!

      Excellent resort for the price. The rooms were a little dated, but the beach there is very nice. The food/snacks was actually better than expected compared to other comparable Cuba resorts we've been to before. Manger there is top notch and is very nice and approachable. Our focus was on enjoying the beach in Cuba so we definitely enjoyed this place.

      “Six times and can not wait to go back !! ”
      Returned to Memories Oct 30 .. We were met by the new general manager Noelia and Ilieny .. Love receiving all the info and room keys at the airport ... The front desk staff help with our holidays in so many ways .. john ,Illeny and Zueil are a great asset to the resort ... Always helpful .. Thanks so much .. Noelia spends the most part of her days getting to know the guests .. She talks to everyone asking "how is everything ?"..she also got on the bus and gave us a great send off.. We would like to see the horses back on the beach !!! We also had many heading to where the horses were and commented on no horses .. Yasmany does a great job on the sunset ride to Lenny's.. I don't know how the staff remember our drinks or even us for that matter .. Thanks to Yelitza you are very special . So bubbly and happy .. You start our day on a high note .. You are very good at your job !!! Demories as always was our favorite waitress working so hard to make sure we have every thing we need . First thing every morning we would head for the breakfast Buffett and see our cook ( salt pepper) . As always the rooms were clean and the grounds well kept . The beach is by far the best in Cuba . We hope to return to our new home away from home in April. Thanks for making us feel so special see you all soon.

      “Another memorable vacation!! Best beach and staff! ”
      Just returned from another amazing 2 week vacation, it is our third time there and we were received like royalties! You can't beat this deal, beautiful beach, the people and service was excellent! The staff members do anything to help you and please you! We love the staff (el Flaco, Gato, Jorge, Yan) at the beach, always smiling and happy. At the pizza and sadwich stand, Carbo and his 2 friends are the best. If you have kids, Yoima will take care of them when you need a break! At the reception you can look for Belen or ileni who will do anything to make your stay a better one. The rooms were clean good and always hot water and good pressure. The buffet is repetitive but with a little imagination you can do many combinations. The animation crowd is great too! We always say we want to try a new resort but in the end this one is always our favorite and we never regret our choice.

      “Another Awesome Holiday (: ”
      This October 28th 2014, 9 of our family members traveled once again to Memories Caribe Beach Resort; for yet another wonderful vacation. We were welcomed as if we members of the staffs families. It was so great to see our old friends and to meet some new ones. As always our rooms and amenities were excellent and the staff were awesome at meeting all of our wants and needs. The beach staff in the Diamond Club area were amazing as always, and the pool was refreshing and clean. The staff throughout the resort were polite and attentive to all of our needs. I would like to close this review by mentioning a few of the staff that made our trip such a success. starting with Ilieny who works the front desk at the resort; she is amazing at her job and bends over backwards to make sure that all of our needs are met without delay. The bar staff at the pool snack bar; Isreal, Yusmilba ane Diana made an extra effort to keep our glasses full at all times. Wilber the porter brought our bags to our rooms with a smile and good wishes for our weeks holiday, and picked them up at the end of our stay with wishes for a quick and safe flight home. The evening shows were excellent, better and better each time we've returned to the resort. Lastly; the the animation staff kept us dancing, and jumping and doing crazy games each and every day. they make comming back to Memories Caribe Beach Resort well worth it. Yamerica,Anna and Joeyima did a great job keeping us entertained; but Judy as always is very attentive to our holiday needs and goes out of her way to make every day that we are there enjoyable, from Kareokee in the evening or silly games by the pool. My Family Love Judy, she is an important part of our Cuban family while we are visiting, and make returning essential and she makes Memories Caribe Beach Resort the success that it is. In closing; the new general manager Noelia Lopez is a great addition to the Memories team, smart and efficient at her job, and we look forward to returning soon and will be glad to see all of our Cuban family.

      “My favourite resort in Cuba ”
      This was my second trip to memories caribe having travelled there last year. I knew it was a good choice for a solo vacation because it is smaller than other resorts in the area, and I knew it would be safe. I cannot find one bad thing to say about this place. It is really a special resort. The general manager is doing a wonderful job in making it so special. I saw her everyday, walking around and talking to guests in various places. She is really on the ball :). I did not ever wait for service... Not in the buffet, snack bar, pool bar or lobby bar, which I cannot say for other resorts. We had a couple of windy days and lounging on the beach was not ideal, and therefore everyone flocked to the pool. Management ensured that extra sun beds were brought out for those who didn't have a spot. I've not seen this at any other resort. The windy days dumped a tonne of seaweed on the beach. The staff worked tirelessly everyday to clean it off, so the beach was always pristine. Again, I have not always seen this on other resorts (one of them being a 5 star and the seaweed was not moved the whole week I was there). I should give some special mentions to staff: the maids who took care of rm 2119...everyday you left me something special which always made me smile...Daniel and Yissel and the bartenders of the snack bar, you made me feel welcome and were always ready with my two cervezas before I even had to ask. The bartender at the pool bar (I didn't get her name but it starts with a Y and she's expecting a baby)...what a beautiful person always smiling and welcoming. The entertainment staff was amazing!!! Judi and Ariel were total sweethearts! The dancers were incredible. I love watching professional dancers and this troop was amazing! The romantic show blew me away. Such talent!!! We all go to Cuba for the beach, and this one is stunning. Definitely take the time to walk down the right side to experience the perfect serenity of the natural, untouched beach. At low tide, you can walk the sandbars forever. As a solo traveller I was very nervous about staying in a resort alone. This was the perfect spot to do it...and in the end I was never alone as there were always people to hang out and talk with and I met some great new friends Thanks Memories! I will be back!!

      “Wonderful Holiday with Great People ”
      I had read many reviews of the property before going, all the good, bad and the ugly. I noticed many referred to Noelia, and for good reason - she is making wonderful progress here at the resort. I certainly hope she is well compensated for her hard work. The check-in and flight with Sunwing was perfect. Three hours and 6 minutes. Arrival and check-in at the hotel also very organized. The room was well appointed and maid service was excellent. Lots of hot water and water pressure. Fresh water bottle every day and wonderful towel sculputing! The staff was always helpful and happy. They especially liked when we shared our Canadian snacks of Pringles, cashews, candies, etc. The Hallowe'en show was awesome and held right on the beach. The Piano bar was excellent and made great coffees everyday. Service there was very good as well. the servers at the swim up bar and 24 hour snack bar were wonderful! The food overall was not great but not bad either. I could always find something to eat at dinner, lunch and breakfast and many days I just grazed at the 24 hour snack bar - which was excellent. The french fries were delicious as were the pizzas, burgers and hot dogs. The beach bar also had burgers, hot dogs and fresh made pizzas - you pick the toppings. At breakfast you could have fresh fruit smoothies, omelettes, waffles and pancakes! Bring your own steak sauce if you don't like A-1, and ketchup if you want Heinz. I didn't see any peanut butter either. Otherwise, they have everything you would need. There really were a lot of mosquitoes - I got bit quite a bit but my friend did not at all? the worst experience with them was at the a la carte at the beach at night. Also, be very careful about going off the sand on the beach - I stepped into a landmine of burr like growths which were very sharp and hard to get out of my feet. It was a painful lesson to be learned, and they seemed to have barbs on them making them very hard to get out, even with tweezers and a safety pin. We met a ton of wonderful people there, and had a great time. It was a bargain for sure, and I would recommend it for budget concious travellers and families too.

      It was our first time on a family vacation. My two and half year old, my wife, and I had a GREAT TIME!! It was a FANTASTIC trip with surprisingly AMAZING FOOD and STAFF. We met so many friendly staff and got to know them. The entertainment crew were wonderful. I got to tell you, it was really sad when we realized we were leaving. We ended up not using the ketchup we took along as it was only needed for the snack bar food; even though the snack bar's pizza and fries were great. THE BUFFET WAS ALL WE NEEDED. My little boy is anxious to go back and feed the fishes, crabs, and turtle. I can't wait to get a chance to go again. I hope it is soon. And next time I don't want to forget my HUGE MUG or flask, and extra mosquito repellant. It is so cool to stand in the ocean and see tiny little fishes swimming around.

      “memorable two weeks!!! ”
      It's been a month since my family and I Cindy Laperle, mother of the bride returned and I can say that I miss it like crazy. It was my fourth time staying here. We celebrated my daughter Brittany and her husband Luis wedding at Memories Caribe and I couldn't ask for anything better from this resort. We were 35 of us in all. The staff was absolutely amazing, especially Aliuska she was so helpful with everything. She always returned my emails and trust me there were lots of them but never did she complain. She was always so polite and always willing to help in anyway she could. During my two week stay she fixed any problems I had without hesitation. I absolutely loved my junior suite. As for the wedding everything was amazing, the decorations, the gazebo, the flowers, the private dinner we had for all our guests in the Cuban restaurant and especially the reception afterwards. I know that Aliuska and Ana worked very hard to make this a special day and they did an awesome job. These two ladies are the most unbelievable women I have ever met, I will consider them my friends for life. As for other staff at this resort, everyone is just so polite and friendly. All the staff at the front desk were great especially Yohn, he always had a big smile on his face when you seen him. The servers at the buffet the ones that work on the side of where they cook the beef are so friendly that they made sure to set up all the tables we needed every time they seen us all walk in, thank you Michael Jackson, Yennie and I know theres more but I can't remember everyones name, I'm sorry. I also want to thank the manager for everything, your staff made my daughters wedding unforgettable. I will definitely be returning at some point and will recommend this resort to anyone who asks. Thank you for everything:)

      “Great memories created at Memories Caribe ”
      My husband and I stayed at Memories Caribe, Cayo Coco from February 27 til March 8, 2014. We had an amazing time. This resort was beyond our expectations. We have stayed many times in Varadero, and Memories Caribe has stolen our hearts. We will return to this resort. From the resort's cleanliness to the entertainment, the food and the staff and we won't forget the most beautiful beach. We stayed in a junior suite and it was clean and comfortable. I spent my birthday away from home and to my surprise there was a birthday cake left in our room for me. All the staff at Memories Caribe need to give themselves a pat on the back. You guys are amazing.
