We had a great time at Memories Flamenco Beach Resort! We took the Diamond Club option and didn't regret it - While there wasn't a HUGE difference over all, it was worth having it just for the early check in, late check out and little extras included (private concierge at our disposition just for the Diamond Club clients, special places reserved on the beach, ...)
Overall the food was good - the only restaurant à la carte we didn't appreciate was The Ranchon and for some reason that night the service wasn't at it's best. Felt more like a 'à la chaine' restaurant than a 'à la carte' Restaurant. But all the other places were nice and there's a good choice of food so everyone can select something that will please them.
The only other negative point : the house wine is HORRIBLE (but you can buy some other good wines) and there's plenty of other drinks.
The staff is wonderful. Especially : Yumisleidi who works at the Florencia Restaurant - always smiling and ready to help!! Loved her!! Thank you Yumisleidi for making us feel special. And Victor at the Diamond Club Beach Bar - Great smile, Great service !! :) Lovely people!! Thanks to all the wonderful staff members!!
Now... THE BEACH... well, it has rocks and coral... but... because of that... it has BEAUTIFUL fishes and marine life all around it. No need to go out for a scuba excursion!! Got it all out there!! and once you've passed the few first meters of rocks... it's a beautiful sandy beach!! Depends on what you're looking for.
The rooms are ok. Very clean and even though i've seen some way more comfortable beds, these were ok and provided a good night sleep!! :)
The pools are nice.
Good day and night animation.
Overall ... a great vacation with my Mom!! :)
Seemed to be lots of children entertaining too. Lots of little families around.
Would definitely recommend the place to friends.
