We knew that based on the reviews shared that the hotel was likely to be dated, however we were not expecting it to be quite as bad as it was. We were traveling as a group of five and had booked a double room and a triple room. When we went to check in there was one person handling all...

This is an old and tired hotel. Price reflects this. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable. Room had a slight musty smell to it and air conditioner was fairly loud. We left the a/c on all day and turned it off when we went to bed. Water for bathing was warm at best. Elevator was slow, only one working....

Beautiful beach, frendly people, Cuba is great!! Rooms are poor, smell like humidity, we did not turn on AC because of healty reasons :) (but window is enough). Give to maid 1 CUC daily and you will have clean room and fresh towels every day. There was lots of food and everyone can find something for himself but be carefull....

This is my fourth Cuban hotel resort stay within 2 years. Two people traveled December 2016 for 3 nights. I chose this hotel due to the "short dates" I could afford to go away matching with this hotel stay, also some of reviews said food was adequate, which I agree. The main reason for us go to Cuba is mostly...

I understand that this is Cuba and it is not the same as Canada! But that is no excuse for what this hotel has in store for you. Listen to the reviews do not stay here. I traveled to this hotel Feb-2016 with 3 of my friends for 7 days. It was 7 days of hell. The room was run...

First of all, the bad things I read were probably all true and if this was another part of the world I'd be writing the same BUT it's Cuba so it needs to be compared and rated as such and not as though it were the Costa del Sol. It reminded me of a Spanish package hotel when I was...

I booked a night here very last minute because our Airbnb reservation got rejected just before our flight to Cuba. This hotel is a nightmare. Run down in all ways and especially the food was disgusting! I think they get the food second hand from other hotels and Sunbeach serves it again and again. The room smelled like mushrooms and...
