Things that happened: - Found 2 cockroaches in my room - Got food poisoning from the buffet - Saw dozens of TYPES of insects on the lobby where the lady took my passport - Had to suffer through smoke and drunk tourists using their boom boxes in the lobby -...

Horrible horrible horrible. Im a veteran traveller and I can pretty much stay anywhere but this was disgusting. The food hall constantly smelled of a sewer yuck!

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...

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.
