Many people that review this hotel seem to forget two things. One, they are in Cuba; and two, they didn't pay for a 5 star hotel. I booked this hotel very last minute, and at the time of booking, it was the cheapest hotel in Cuba. After reading the terrible reviews on this site, I was definitely expecting the worst... More

Across the street from the beach ai resort with two towers. The taller of the two is 14 stories with no balconies and the eight story one, half the rooms have balconies. I was there during a particularly wet week and many of the activities were held in the lobby so people weren't totally bored. Despite the wet weather, I... More

We spent one week at Sun Beach Hotel, it was almost the same as 11 years ago when we were there. The food has improved, entertainment is good, close to the disco and bar at the corner where they have good nightly entertainment. The hotel has a nice coffee bar, lounge and an Italian Restaurant, nice pool and across the... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a last minute trip to Cuba. We had read the mixed reviews prior to booking but had at least expected it to be clean. The hotel cleanliness is very poor. The hotel is in need of repair. Cats and dogs run throughout the place. Only one elevator working and it had no cover... More

This was a cheap vacation for me. I went in not expecting much more than a place to sleep, bathroom, and occasional meal. This place did that. My room was clean everyday, bed made. The room was alright for Cuba. The staff does work very hard. The meals were alright, which was a bonus. Cuban food from everywhere I ate... More

I was blessed on my first trip to Varadero that I chose Sunbeach. For me, there isn't another hotel in Varadero that I would want to stay at ... this is home for me when I'm in Cuba. If you take the time to get to know the people who work at Sunbeach; whether it be the restaurant staff, the... More

I stayed here in November. Only one elevator was working, and the floor in this one was falling apart. The first night we noticed a bad smell of gas in the room, and when my girlfriend asked the staff about it they said it came from the power plant on the other side of town and it was normal. We...
