I'll preface this by saying that Cuba is weird, awesome, and probably completely different now than it was when we visited in December of 2014. Memories Holguin had just changed ownership when we visited. The service in every aspect was amazing. Everyone was so happy to help you or just be incredibly friendly and welcoming. There was a bartender named... More

Stayed from May 16-23 with a friend, got a great deal with Sunwing out of Toronto at $745 tax in, per person. Unbeatable value! I didn't arrive with high expectations as I have been to Cuba twice before (Varadero & Santa Clara) so I know the standards in Cuba are lower than elsewhere in the Caribbean. I was pleasantly surprised... More

we stayed at this resort from 05/19-05/16, we had a great time, the resort was very clean and the staff were always so helpful! No complaints on any of the food or a la carte's. Lobster on the beach is a must and worth the 25 pesos! we did a buggy and horse ride to show the children a bit... More

Just returned from a week at Memories and I have to say, by far, my favorite resort in Cuba. From friendly faces to clean and up-kept grounds, the resort is stunning. The entertainers made our trip that much more fun and exciting. The bar and restaurant staff were always smiling. When we needed to change a restaurant reservation, Joel was... More

Stayed at this all inclusive resort from May 12 – 19. OK, as a frequent TripAdvisor reviewer, I am brutally honest. There is no doubt this is a beautiful location, beautiful grounds and beach, and good service, and has earned a 4 ½ star rating from Cuban Tourism department, but it is not a 4 ½ star accommodation by North...
