  • All Inclusive holiday on the beach
  • Host of optional excursions

 

Cuba - Location 

On Arroyo Bermejo Beach on Cuba’s north coast, our hotel is surrounded by mountains and ocean. A popular location, this beach resort serves up every modern amenity, but for a contrast it is close to historic Havana, Matanzas City and Varadero Beach for interesting days out.

Cuba - Life's more than a beach

Cuba’s resort life is every bit as irresistible. A wide range of enjoyable distractions from sunbathing include themed parties, a 24-hour Jacuzzi and lobby bar, salsa dancing lessons and even Spanish language classes - finally an excuse to say ‘Hasta La Vista, Baby’.

We’ll experience a Cuban beach party and the option of joining in with scores of fun competitions and watersports throughout the day. In the evenings enjoy gala nights, piano bar music and shows, plus you can dance the night away in the hotel’s nightclub.

Cuba - A hot city, frozen in time

Here a roll call of famous names crops up at every turn. In Havana you can drink at the same bars once frequented by Ernest Hemingway or dine at the Hotel Nacional where Sinatra once entertained. No visit to Cuba is complete without exploring crumbling yet magnificent Habana Vieja (Old Havana). A UNESCO World Heritage Site it may be, but life here spills out onto the streets as it always has, the scent of exotic cocktails and entrancing red hot salsa rhythms drawing us in.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday. All information provided relates to British citizens who hold or are entitled to apply for a British passport. For the most up-to-date visa information please visit; Cuba Foreign Advice

If you are not a British citizen and do not hold a British passport, you must make your own enquiries as to the applicable requirements.

Alternatively, you can apply for your Visa with our preferred partner the Travel Visa company by selecting the following link; Travel Visa Company.

Other info: Tourist cards are available from the airport prior to departure. Approx cost is £30.00. We would recommend securing visa before departure in case application is denied at airport.
Please put c/o Memories Jibacoa if you are joining the Jibacoa Sun holiday.

For all late bookings to Cuba, a Tourist Card can be obtained at the departure airport before check in but extra time should be allowed in addition to regular check-in time, for this service.

All Visas and Tourist Cards are non transferable and non refundable.

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Havana airport to the hotel is approximately 1 hour depending on traffic.

More to Explore
Listed below are a few of the optional tours, which may be available to you. Please note that optional tours can be paid for in local currency only and that prices quoted are just a guideline and depends on the numbers interested. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.

Historic Havana Cost Approx. 52 Pesos

Catamaran Sailing Cost Approx. 76 Pesos

4x4 Discovery Tour Cost Approx. 70 Pesos

Gratuities
The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.

We suggest a group collection at the end of your holiday to cover drivers, guides, porters and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £10.00 per week, making it £20 for a fortnight stay (or the equivalent amount in local currency). Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated).

As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
27°C to 32°C

Dress Code
Comfortable, lightweight, casual cotton or linen clothing is ideal. However, it would be advisable to take a lightweight waterproof, just in case! A sun hat is essential. Comfortable walking shoes are a must. A money belt is recommended. Most hotel rooms and restaurants have air conditioning, which at times can be turned up full in public areas and can be uncomfortably cool. A shawl or light jacket is recommended when dining, especially in the evenings. The Italian restaurant within the hotel complex requires smart casual, with no jeans or shorts. At times, due to the customs of the country, the women may be asked to cover up when visiting a church for example, so please bring a cover-up for this purpose.
