Stayed at Memories Paraiso (March23rd to March 31st). It was our first visit to Cuba so we really don't have anything to compare it to. We did receive exactly what we requested, a King size bed, balcony, pool view and bonus an ocean view. The rooms are clean and spacious. The chambermaids cleaned our rooms everyday and left us little notes and surprise towel arts on our bed. Thank you to Hector and the others. Our fridge was replenished with water everyday.
We did leave snacks and a peso everyday and the maids showed us so much gratitude. It was so worth it!!
The food: I was so worried when I read certain reviews, but we always found something to eat. The fried rice, pizza, grilled chicken. were quite good! Yes, there is a lack of fresh fruit and vegetables but this is Cuba not Canada. I Consider myself to be very fortunate to have the option of having the variety of fresh fruits and veggies back home.
The staff are exceptional!! A large them are so friendly and go out of there way to make your stay a memorable one.
Entertainment: They could improve on their evening shows. We went every night, and the shows that we enjoyed the most was the "The Micheal Jackson impersonator", The dancers and the two bands that played outside the "Theater". The rest of the shows lacked our interest. I would suggest to have a comedian act, and maybe a magician that Adults would enjoy or musicals like "Grease" ect... The singers were good but we found that they would sing about three songs in a row to fill the time slot. I truly believe that you could boost your ratings with these suggestions.
The pool side entertainers were awesome!! I took part in the water aerobics everyday thanks to George! So much fun! He also entertained my husband with a couple of games of pool.
The beach is gorgeous!! The only downside for me is that I could feel the sand flies biting me on the very first day on the beach. My husband was not bothered at all. No fault of anyone except for my body chemistry I guess??
The Catamaran excursion was awesome!!! It included all alcohol beverages on the boat, snorkeling, going to a private island, the Dolphinarium ( I fell in love with a dolphin named "Pepe". and lunch(your choice of chicken or lobster) All this for $99.00 c. each. It was so worth it.
We absolutely love the Cuban people!! I'm thinking of taking a Spanish class in order to be able to better converse with all of them. I figure that they are making an effort learning our language why not join them.
SHAME ON THOSE WHO COMPLAIN!
We will definitely go back to Cuba!
