Young family were impressed with Memories Flamenco, in Cayo Coco

My Travel Consultant: Lindsay Paine

Erin, Strathroy, ON - (trip to Cayo Coco, Cuba)

We had a wonderful trip to Memories Flamenco Cayo Coco.  We all were very impressed with the property. We thought the vegetation and gardens were quite nice. The kids (9 and 11) loved the pools.  I guess in December they redid the beach and brought in a huge machine that pumps sand from the ocean to create a bigger beach.  So the beach is much improved from before and it is absolutely gorgeous.

 They do bus trips to Pilar Beach which is 40 mins away and apparently is an outstanding world famous beach.  We were going to do this bus trip but once getting to the resort and talking to the resort tour people we decided not to go because the Memories Flamenco beach is just as beautiful as Pilar Beach.  And now Pilar Beach is building big resorts at either ends so there is big cranes that ruin the view.  I hope that all makes sense. 

We found for the most part the workers at the resort were very friendly. More friendly then we found them to be when we went to Holguin. The food was just 'okay'.  But we expected this and it didn't really bother us.  It is worth noting that there is NOT 110 volts in the room.  It was suggested on Trip Advisor that there was (and there is 110 volt on the wall hair dryer but it didn't work).  

 The only complaints that we have are:
the beds were VERY VERY hard
- t
he system of getting or reserving the beach palapas was ridiculous.  We went to the beach at 6:30 am in the morning to get a palapas for shade and even at that early hour they were all taken because the resort workers place items of their own on the chairs and you can only get them if you gave the workers the appropriate amount of money.  

We would definitely go back to this resort. Thank you for suggesting the valet parking.  It certainly was worth the money.

Thanks for all your help in preparation for the trip.
