Memories Varadero (formerly Sirenis la Salina) is a 4 * all-inclusive hotel in Varadero, one of the most popular tourist spots in Cuba.
This vacation resort features a beautiful colonial architecture with a tropical touch and turns to be an attractive option for families due to the wide range of entertainment and recreational activities for everyone, children and adults.
Stands out the beautiful strip of beach in which the hotel is located and the existence of a slide for all ages is highly accepted.
Being a fairly large hotel (1035 rooms distributed in 21 three-storey buildings), the walking distances to the different services can be a bit long for some guests, while others appreciate the walk through the tropical gardens.
However, its extension allows the resort to offer a very lively area and another very quiet, separate area (area of silence), both having large swimming pools and bars and services.
The hotel features a good variety of specialized restaurants, being the creole and japanese food very well received.
Despite its beautiful facilities, there are flaws regarding the availability of supplies. The hotel buffet restaurant sometimes, mainly at breakfast, turns out not to be enough for all customers in terms of speed in replenishing food, dishes, cutlery, glasses, all this causing annoying queues.
The resort is huge and needs improvement in some aspects like the maintenance of the rooms and some common areas.
In summary, a hotel with a very nice beach, excellent pools, a wide variety of entertainment activities and recreational options that sometimes suffers from the availability of supplies and delays in service given its large size.
Tip: bring insect repellent and sting lotion.
