We booked this for my 30th birthday and it was CHEAP and the reviews were not so great but we were open for anything. It was not nearly as bad as the reviews say. The food was actually quite decent, better than most north American buffets. The people were not always friendly but within a couple days, they were very... More

Upon arrival we checked in and went to the hotel. It was 3 of us who travelled, We are young and we travelled on a budget to... More

Before booking this hotel for the fantastic price we found, I did thorough research. Sunbeach is an aging "resort" (more a hotel with a number of resort-like amenities). I'm not sure how the star rating works, but I'd give it a one and a half or two star. So we came prepared for the room that was clean, but had... More

This is an affordable type of hotel, so you have to have simple expectations when you come here. This basics are that the hotel room was simple but clean and I did not see any bugs. The nightly entertainment is minimal, and the food is acceptable and edible, so I did stay away from meat a lot of the time... More

A friend and I stayed at the hotel gran caribe sunbeach for 3 nights. Upon arrival the man at the front desk wasn't very pleasant and made us feel like booking a room at the hotel was a hassle.

The hotel is old. Elevator is not good working. Also the shower is not ok. There is a lot of noise in the room from the airco, so much you can not sleep well. Always a lot of water on the balcony, so you always have wet feet. The service is poor and the food is simple. The swimmingpool is... More

The beach is not far from hotel and it is nice. The hotel corresponds to the 3 star level not more not less. Most of the visitors come from Cuba, of South America. There is a swimming pool bar near the pool and on the beach. Satisfactory.
