I've visited beautiful cuba many times and It makes me sad to say that Sunbeach was the worst hotel experience I've ever encountered. I wish I had listened to all the awful reviews this place has gotten because they are all true. My two young daughters, my husband and myself were beyond disappointed. Disappointed with the food, the rooms, the...

Very disappointed, the elevator didn't work, more than half of the time. The check-in staff was abrupt impatient and rather rude. The restaurant didn't have enough cutlery or dishes to support the guests they had..half an hour wait for a coffee cup was a little ridiculous. The best part of the whole experience was the cab driver we got for...

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!!!.

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...
