We stayed at Sunbeach in June 2016, and had a great time. People looking for a secluded resort feel SHOULD NOT go to Sunbeach. It is more of a glorified hotel. Overall comments - this is a 2 star resort, don't expect anything more - we had a great time, super chill - you need patience - because of the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sunbeach Hotel for the last days of our trip to Cuba. We couldn't have made a worse decision. I'll start with the hotel itself; while the reception area and lobby looks quite nice, the rest is very, very dated. Pool area is basic, with numerous plastic cups lying around. Our room was decent... More

I cannot stress this enough!!!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! I wasnt expecting the best hotel as it was only 3 stars. I have stayed in other 3 star hotels and resorts that were surprisingly good. I'm not extremely fussy. As long as it's clean and the staff is friendly, I'm happy. This was neither clean nor friendly. I can honestly... More

We went to the Sun Beach because of the price knowing that it was a 2 to 2.5 star hotel. Reviews were mostly positive if you were not looking for a luxury experience. Our expectations were met. We had a nice room on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the artisan market. No issues with the room. Not fancy,... More

This was our second trip to this hotel. It had changed ownership and they were making more effort to keep it clean and the staff in the restaurant were much more attentive.
