Great Value
Our last Cuba trip caused us to set our expectations low for this one. We were pleasantly surprised. Let's get the MINOR not so good out of the way. No beach right in front of the hotel. No big deal, walk to the beach bar, turn left, walk a couple of hundred metres and there's soft sand. Food. Always subjective and expectations have to be managed in Cuba - there's still a crushing embargo and supply chain issues. There is a dearth of fresh veggies, but you won't get scurvey. Some days there are beef burgers at the snack bar, some days there are none. Booze: one bar might have vodka, the other bar might not. Same with tonic. If you like a specific booze, eg tequila, bring your own. Wifi can be a bit buggy but it's FREE. Now the good: The resort and rooms are in excellent condition, the pools are clean and gorgeous and that infinity pool overlooking the ocean is second to none. Beach? Who cares? Sip on your drink, in a pool, while staring out at the azure and aquamarine water. Bonus: no sand in your shorts. Staff: Second to none. Friendly and will do their best to keep your trip on track and keep you happy. Bartenders are run off their feet, but keep up well. Food and Beverages: We were surprised that they had tomato juice at the pool bar, a Bloody Mary was a nice change from rum and fruity drinks. Slushy machines are there... peach slush and rum.. delicious. The buffet can get a bit repetitive, but if you're there for a week, so what? Fresh to order pizza, pasta. Grilling stations for pork, chicken, beef, fish. Hot holds had beef, pork, chicken and fish most nights. Had some nice ribs 3x during the week. There are always a few basic vegetables in the hot holds. Nice selection of cheese and cold cuts. Head over to the fresh bread, grab a half sub bun and go to town on the cold cuts and cheese. The nicest beach you'll ever see, Playa Pilar is just down the road. Best to make a day of it and take a package: Beach chairs, catamaran ride, lobster lunch. Worth it. Trying to do it on your own, you'll get clipped on beach chair rental, food and beverage. All staff we crossed paths with were polite, friendly and did their best. We'll be back.

Second visit and not disappointed
Here is a review of the week of Jan 7-14, 2023 at Memories Flamenco. Overall, it was a great week and even if there are some occasional shortages, like just two or three types of juices one day, no big deal and there is plenty of alcohol, pretty much all types. PLENTY of food and the taste is great. Big improvement since Jeorge the Food Manager is always there and it shows by the quality of food, which was great for Cuba. Best thing is to check the pictures I attached and see for yourself. And a few IMPORTANT points to keep in mind and you'll see how much you're getting for your money as part of the all inclusive package, especially at Flamenco: - for most Canadian flights, you're actually getting between 6-9 hours back and forth, which itself it is a nice trip that costs around 500$-600$ - all meals for 7 days, including à la carte restaurants - great choice of alcohol including Rhum Gin Vodka Whisky Scotch Brandy Liquor Creams Wine Champagne Beer and many other types and cocktails. And if you took the Diamond Club upgrade, additional premium drinks like Glenlivet 1824, 7years old Rhum, Jameson, Ballentines etc. Special dinners as well, and separate restaurant. - a nice coach bus ride to see the area from the airport to the hotel - prosciutto and great selection of cheese from Europe - great shows every night including some like Magic Show or retro that you'll easily pay 50$ in Canada to see - great coffee and specialty coffee - clean rooms with cold AC, mini bar - insane beaches - free catamaran ride which again could easily be over 50$ - free wifi - free pedal boat rental and I could continue.... On top of these you see different places and cultures. So for fun add a reasonable price for everything you get and you'll see that 750$ to 1100$ depending of the departure city/time of the year etc, which is what most people pay it is a real bargain to be at Flamenco. We should be grateful that we have access to these types of trips at such low costs and appreciate the efforts that locals are doing to please tourists. Would I go back? Sure and not the first time going back to Flamenco. Thank you to everyone at the hotel for doing your best!

Another Great Vacay at Melia JDR
Our 5th (maybe 6th?) visit to Melia JDR, our 2nd visit since their re-opening post-COVID closure. As with EVERY visit, the people are what make or break the vacation. At Melia the Staff make our vacation each and every time! I have nothing but praise for the Staff; from Management, to Bartenders & Servers, Front Desk, Cooks, Housekeepers, Gardeners…they always have a smile and they all try their very hardest to keep you happy. Other guests can break your vacation; if you allow it! Always come well-packed with patience and broad shoulders! Lol. We've travelled enough to expect the rudeness of some travellers; it's a hard pill to swallow, but you can't let it ruin your week! Our room was wonderful; it was kept clean and restocked all week. The Beach has improved since our last visit in November 2022. It amazes me how much the beach changes from visit to visit. We came during a windy spell, so there was quite a bit of seaweed washed in. As soon as the wind had settled a tractor was brought in to rake it away. They are still busy building many new papalas. Beach chairs were harder to find this visit, but we were told more were being ordered. The food was comparable to our past visits, with a few shortages here and there throughout the week; pasta is still hit or miss, the 24-hr Snack Bar had limited choices at times and the Pizza Bar was definitely popular and ran out of pizzas well before it's posted closing time of 3:00pm. That being said, we were well-fed all week, with plenty of food & drink options. There is only 1 Main Buffet open, but the Beach Buffet was open for Breakfast and Lunch. Most of the a la Carte restaurants are open. Our favourite was the International. The weather was windier and cooler during our visit. The bugs were a bit better than our last visit; I am rarely bothered by the noseeums, but my husband is usually eaten alive! He's tried everything to prevent bites; our best tips are to wear long sleeves and pants in the evening & dab Vicks Vapor Rub between your toes and on your wrists. If they like you, there's no stopping them! Lol All in all another great trip! Definitely won't be our last! It's nice to find a place that feels like a second home; we know what to expect and can settle in with ease! Until next time…

Big disappointment!
Hi! I've been traveling with my spouse and 2 kids under 12. It was not our first time in Cuba, but it was definitely the worst one The hotel is brand new, modern and everything was functional.... except very bad management that made our stay miserable! 1. Beach - nice and clean. Always enough chairs and spots in shade. We expected some water sports, but nothing was available. 2. Pools - nice and clean pools. Separate family section with 3 pools. Great when traveling with very young children. 3. Room - We reserved a family room with 2 beds. Beds are very small, too small for 2 people. Watch out if you are traveling with older kids as 1 room may not be enough. Also, bring your own pillows - each bed have 1 very thin and long pillow. 4. Wi-Fi - it is available and free... however you need to find a spot were your device can actually catch it. Good luck! 5. Location - far from other hotels. About 30 min drive to Cayo Coco. If you whish to go shopping (store is not yet opened in the hotel) or eat elsewhere, taxi charges 200CAD for a trip to Cayo Coco. 6. Entertainment - during the day a strict minimum: volleyball at the beach, 30 min of dance lessons at the pool, 15 min kids games. Evening entertainment even worse. A group of 5 dancers performs 30 min in a lobby bar (the same group every evening, even on New Years Eve). It seems the hotel did not sign contracts with other groups yet, as the hotel is far away from other hotels and nobody wants to come. Moreover, the hotel has no theater or place for bigger evening shows, so I do not believe it will ever have good shows. During our stay everything happened in the crowded lobby bar. If you count on entertainment - this is not your hotel! 7. Restaurants a la carte - difficult to have an opinion, as they were opened only 1 evening during our stay. We have tried the Mexican one. Degustation menu without any choice, not impressive, but it is Cuba. Finally, we ended at the snack bar as kids were hungry. Why the restaurants were closed 5 of 6 evenings - no staff to work there (official response I got from the restaurant manager, Hector) 8. Buffet - nightmare! We knew that we are going to Cuba and we did not expect much in matter of food variety. The only vegetables we got were green tomatoes and sauerkraut. Very limited fruit, no fresh cocktails, poor deserts... meat shortage, basically no seafood, French fries only once!... still, all that was not as disappointing as the bad management and the time we have waisted in lines in the buffet!!! Lines to get, eggs, pasta and pizza. Be patient, or be 30min before opening... otherwise 1 hour waiting in line to order a pizza!!!! There were days that show cooking counters were closed, so pizza or pasta were not even available. Beach bar served lunch few times, but no rules there - today it is opened, tomorrow it is closed! Snack bar - another option, very limited menu (burgers, sandwich, fries), kids liked it... unfortunately, again, 1 hour to receive the order (4 burgers and fries)! So, either eat before others, either scarify 2-3 hours per day to have that egg or pasta or pizza or a burger that your kid wishes to have. We have complained several times to the management and our agency representative. No response, no improvement, no compensation. The only explanation I got: the hotel did not hire enough people!... but still... we have paid for it, and they knew we are arriving... I do not recommend this hotel!

Another fantastic vacation!
Arrived to the hotel after a short bus transfer from the airport. The reception staff were professional and very friendly. Great service from Will the bus boy to take me and my luggage to my room. The room was spacious and clean with ocean views overlooking the quiet pool. My maid Irma was great! The lobby bar service was great! Yarimi makes the best coffees in the morning. The lobby is a great comfortable space to meet other guests and enjoy entertainment as well. The pools are great with afternoon entertainment but I prefer the beautiful beach! Ale was there each morning to help me with the selecting my chair. Again friendly and professional. Alejandro who is part of the entertainment staff took me fishing twice! What a great experience! The nightly entertainment was great! The dancers are so good. They really seem to love what they do! The food at the buffet and alacartes was great! The fresh baked bread is such a treat! The cooks at the buffet were great. Hats off to Elisebell who makes the best omelettes! The managers were exceptional, from Sahily who made sure I had the room I wanted to Adriana who made sure I was comfortable being a guest who is single. I felt very safe and always in good company. Also Idel who welcomed me back with a bottle of rum in my room for being a returning guest. Always checking on me to make sure I was having a great vacation. All the staff treat you like family and I can't wait to go back!
