We had a great trip! There was 12 in our group and everyone enjoyed it. We stayed Feb 3 - 10/16 The only thing we found was the fleas ate us all over our body! I don't no how you would protect yourself they seem to like OFF! Other then that we knew to expect the stairs, but take the... More

Average rooms, think older Comfort Inn, some problems but nothing too excessive. Our room was beside the party pool. Not the place to be if you're wanting some peace and quiet. We tried to change our room for two days without any success so gave up. Definitely fork over the extra cash for the Diamond Club, only took us a... More

- I feel obligated to start this review by talking about the stairs. People talk about this resort as though it is stairs-mageddon. If you are a reasonably healthy person, the stairs and the walking are not going to be an issue. If you want to be really close to everything, go to a smaller resort or an apartment style... More

So the weather was iffy for the first couple of days, and we thought "Oh no . . .how will we endure!" So I'm sure most reviews depend on weather etc. But the weather improved and we really enjoyed ourselves. Meeting people is a big deal. We met so many great travellers. Food, room, the grounds, the beach . .... More

Overall we had a really good holiday at Memories 26 Jan-8th Feb. The staff in the restaurants were excellent, we never had to wait for wine top ups, and plates were cleared away very promptly. Yaumara, a delightful lady, was particularly excellent, but the staff in the restaurants and bars always made us very welcome. In the buffet restaurants (... More

We returned from a 10 day stay at Memories Holguin. This was our 8th trip to Cuba and 7th time to Holguin. When we booked, the property was shown as a 4.5*. I would put this resort at a 3.5* or 4* at best! Our room was very clean and centrally located between the beach and the pools, which was... More

We has a great stay at Memories Holguin! We loved the beach, the pools, the food and the staff. My children were treated like little princes. An escape from cold Canada in tropical paradise for a great price. Excellent value!

We stayed in the resort for 7 days and found that the most impressive thing was its staff attitude. You will feel to be respected there. Everything else was OK except there was a lot of mosquitos. So prepare yourself for that.

My husband and I travelled to Memories Jan 29-Feb 5. For the price we paid are expectations were exceeded. We are pretty laid back people and have travelled quite a bit to different resorts down south. So this review will be based on that. Beach: clean, relaxing and lots of chairs to choose from. Chairs are very uncomfortable, bring a... More
