From the hotel, access to the pristine beach is via the pool area. There is a beach bar at the top of the hill before descending onto the beach, which is cleared of seaweed on a daily basis

Perfect white sands, lots of sun beds with shade, clear sea. Just amazing best beach i have visited. normally i'm a bit funny with sea swimming, but as it was so clear and you can see the bottom wasn't an issue.

For outside the hotel restaurants there are not in walking distance from Memories, you will have to go to Guardalavaca, there are many there.
