I just got home 4 days ago (stayed March 15-22) and had an awesome solo vacation, so much so that I'm already thinking of my next trip there. I stayed at the Sanctuary but enjoyed all 3 sections. Sanctuary is quieter and adults only, but my room was great. Grand Memories and Paraiso sections are kid friendly and livelier. Buffets...

Just returned from Paraiso last week (went Mar 13-20). We flew sunwing - not recommended. They did not seat the 5 of us together - we all had to have separate seats and by champagne flight, simply means one half glass of sparkling wine. At the hotel, we were a family of 5 and asked and paid for balcony, adjoining...

After reading reviews for this resort I was terrified to take my four year old on our first Cuban vacation. After seeing the homes in cities and farms on the way, I was prepared for the worst. What I got was the best. I came prepared with a pharmacy, bug spray, toilet paper and antibacterial wipes. the only thing I...

We travelled to Memories Paraiso (which should not be confused with Grand Memories beside it or the adult only Sanctuary), in mid-March 2017, just after there were reports of water issues to all resorts (since rectified). Location: it is a 2 hour drive from the Santa Clara airport, especially if your bus gets stuck behind a slow moving vehicle. Consider...

This was my 15th trip to Cuba. Stayed at the Memories Paraiso hotel. This is located on small island off main island of Cuba (cayos like FL keys are small islands with causeway joining them to Cuban mainland.) Usually I travel rough (have backpacked in Africa) Booked beach hotel this time as travelling with husband and he wants running water...

Entertainment was great. Food was okay. Beach was amazing. Staff was great. Drinks were always good. Room was alright. I went here years ago and never did a review until I stayed somewhere else in Cuba, which was terrible and this place is amazing compared to it:)

I've just returned from Memories Paraiso with my two kids (9 and 13) and we had a lovely March Break vacation. The weather was good (a few days too windy for the beach, one completely cloudy, but a few spectacular as we'd expected for the time of year). The resort is adequate, clean if a bit rundown and worn out...

Before leaving I was quite concerned because the reviews varied so much for this resort, I wasn't sure what to expect. The Memories Parisio in Santa Maria turned out to be an awesome place to spend a holiday. The rooms were clean. The pools were clean. The staff were attentive and I never had to wait for anything. The grounds...

We traveled to Cuba from Feb 28-March 7. It was our first time traveling, so we didn't have anything to compare it to. We kept an open mind and had a wonderful trip. The drive from the airport to the resort was very well organized and super easy. Our guides to and from were funny, warm and very knowledgeable. Check-in...
