Ok, it was cheap, and you mostly get what you pay for, but this place was truly terrible, its only redeeming feature is it just across the road from the lovely beach. First, to be fair, the ok bits;- 1) The sheets were clean. 2) Actually, can't think of anything that might just qualify as even ok.... The bad bits:-...

We have been to Varadero many times and stayed at different Hotels (different star ratings) and were always able to deal with the problems or food situation, but this time...NO WAY....The elevator worked half of the time...luckily we were on the 3rd floor..but imagine the people on the 8th floor!!!. The rooms and hotel are dated (but we are ok...

Actually, I love the Sunbeach Hotel! Why...because it is excellent for people reviewing, how people cope with stress, how prepared they are for their trip, how they know Cuba, how their attitude is. Indeed you have to be strong, a well traveled person to endure many hotels in Cuba. It is all attitude and positive thinking. Yes, there was problems...

The room was very clean and nice. Furniture was fine (just with some water damage to the wood (wet bathing suits?), and sunbleaching of couch cover). The elevators worked on and off, so not a good place for someone with mobility issues. I enjoyed the food and the local fruit, but the restaurant kept running out of plates and you...

When we had our first meal at the hotel I asked the bartender if they had bottled water. They didn't but he ensured me that the water they put in the jugs was from bottles - and therefore safe to drink for us. We got sick the day after. We thought it something we ate because we had been so...

Sun beach hotel is the worst in Cuba, old, needs a lot of repairs and much better management. All elevators in 9 floor hotel did not work for 4 days, no seat on the toilet in the room. Restaurant in unsanitary working conditions - dirty forks and knifes are put in bucket with cold water, then dried by waiter with...

Having read reviews for this resort prior to leaving, our expectations were in the basement. We were greeted on arrival (11:30 pm) with a room on 5th floor, no safe available as key had been lost. Then we were told the elevators were not working. So it was 70 stairs to our floor. A bell boy carried our suitcases. Stairway...

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in,as a seasoned traveller I have stayed in many hotels and this hotel should be levelled to the ground . You should not need any more information than this .
