The Sanctuary at Grand Memories Varadero. It’s like our second home. We’ve been there 10 times, every time we arrive it’s like a family reunion. Amaury and Nataly at the Beach Bar will always greet you with a smile and hug and pretty well know what you want before you have to ask. This also goes for those at the pool bar ( Roxana, Barbie, Marleyvis, Amanda and Yamilia) and those in the lounge (Jose, Jesus , Ludmila , Anet and Judith). Every morning when we go to the beach Alex greets you with a warm smile and will grab a chair and clean it for you. He will then gladly go and gather drinks for any one who wishes one. Entertainment staff at the pool are friendly and informative for activities going on during the day ( Dayana, Deglys and Meni). Can’t wait until this COVID 19 is over and done with so we can get back. We hope to be able to get in another two week stay soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Sanctuary. We stayed in a deluxe suite which was very large and comfortable. The food was good and plentiful and we really enjoyed the Oriental restaurant. Our butler was Jose Mario and we can not say enough about how much he did for us, he was wonderful. Big shout out to Thais who goes above and beyond to make sure all customers are happy.

I had a wonderful experience at sanctuary varadero, at firs I was afraid because of Covid and all regulations but once I got there let me tell you that Cubans are truly professionals, every body at the hotel treated me and my wife and king and queen the food was great and the bar service too, but hats off for the entertainment team, they work day and night to keep the energy and the vibe of the place just because of them I’ll return to sanctuary, Hanny, Alfredo, Ernesto, Odett! Thank you for the wonderful time!
