Where to start. As someone who works in a chaotic customer service environment I must say I totally appreciate what the staff deal with in a daily basis. At first they seem tired and complacent. However..... after taking time to get to know them and recognizing the pace and capacity to which they work they are all amazing. By the...

It was my 2nd time staying here, I have to say I was really dissapointed this time... I am in a wheelchair and was here for 2 weeks, the elevators kept breaking down and it was becoming an inconvenience for me having to switch between 2 rooms all the time. I was in the only wheekchair accessible room too, on...

I honestly don't know how this hotel has 3 stars. The whole experience was disgusting. On a number of occasions the staff were so rude and very unhelpful, never made us feel welcome. Our room was horrible. Both windows were broken and didn't lock which made us feel very unsafe. The shower (if you can call it that) was very...

If you've never been to Cuba before you need to understand that most hotels are in some state of disrepair (unless they're new). The Sun Beach could use some touch ups but over all I was pleased with it. This hotel is in a great location, right across the road from an incredible beach. There's a bar on the beach...

Had another great stay at this hotel, Very professional staff and very friendly. Some problems with the elevators was a bit annoying at times. The location is perfect right in town close to all kinds of restaurants sidewalk bars places to have a coffee. The beach is fantastic, it is known as the best beach in Varadero.

Go with an open mind. The entertainment was excellent, some of the staff were very accommodating, others,not so much. This hotel is old, you can actually see where the steps are worn down from the traffic, which adds to its character. It is my wish that someone would invest some $$'s,repair the one elevator that isn't working (the other one...

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...
