About the hotel

Grand Memories Santa Maria has it all; a hard-to-beat beachfront location, endless dining options, pristine pools and an array of activities for the most discerning of holiday makers. A unique concept for Cuba, the complex houses a 'resort within a resort' where the grown-ups can enjoy the exclusive Sanctuary section for adults only where you'll get extras including another pool, club house and a sports bar — to name just a few. Whether you check into Sanctuary or the family friendly area of the resort you can be sure to enjoy your spacious rooms and drink in the Caribbean vibes that resound throughout. Lounge by the dazzling pools, get active with a variety of land and water sports, work out at the fitness centre, or pamper yourself at the luxurious spa, no matter what you are sure to have 'Grand Memories' at Santa Maria.
