We stayed at Turquesa the 2nd week of July. We chose Turquesa after carefully reading all previous reviews and upon arrival were very happy with our choice. As others have mentioned this is not a 4 star hotel, but should be classed as a 3 star. Good: - Size of the hotel, everything is within walking distance - Rooms were... More

I travel twice a year to Cuba and have always stayed at Be Live Turquesa. I feel so at home with the friendly staff, that most have become "family to me. It's so nice to hear the staff say..."you've come home" makes me feel special. I'm a very picky eater and there is nothing I can't find to enjoy my... More

I stayed in Be Live Turquesa for 9 days. It is a nice hotel with bungalow rooms which gives you feeling of more freedom. I stayed in the B-section, near the beach. Only a couple of minutes walking to the buffet restaurant, bar, pool and 1 min to the beach. The only noise I heard was music from the nearby... More

Still relaxing experience, room clean and espacious,quiet and everythiing a short wallk away, no big line ups at bar or restaurant. Food average.

Just came back from Be Live in Varadero, the hotel grounds are tired and in need of repairs , that is including the guestrooms. The food at the buffet restaurant was pretty bad. The Italian a la Carte was ok.So I just started my diet while in Varadero. The beach is amazing.....so for what I paid for my vacation, who... More

As we believe we were victims of fraudulent misrepresentation in our hotels and fees by Sunwing in our recent trip to Cuba March 26 - Apr 2/15 - Be Live Experience Turquesea and Rui Varadero. As long time travelers with Sunwing to other resorts in Cuba for over 14 years we are acutely aware of the inadequacies of the packages... More

If you are looking for the Four Seasons for $800/week then you won't be happy. If you are looking for a well run, friendly resort...this is it. We found the staff to be exceptional. They were always available and helpful. Sure the rooms could use an upgrade but I wasn't buying the place so for a week totally doable. The... More

Overall, I was really disappointed with our trip to Cuba and with the Be Live Turquesa resort in particular. I found things disorganized and lacking. It was hard to know who you were supposed to talk to about things like trips, it took 2 days to get a lock for the safe in our room and several times we had... More

The room we had was basic, but it was on the last row at the back of the resort, so very close to the beach. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, especially the chamber maid. The food was ok, though breakfast wasn't the best. We would definitely return, even though the beds are a bit on... More

Hotel Turquesa is not a place to visit if you want a restful interesting holiday. Terrible beds, bad food and or the most part unhelpful, unfriendly staff. We were very disappointed. The only good thing I can say is that it is a quiet resort. There was no wifi and no assistance from staff in locating wifi.
