Our Opinion
Not beachfront but a decent budget hotel. Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

If you are looking for a holiday of relaxation and simplicity, then look no further. The Sunbeach Varadero is the best 2.5-star value in Varadero.  
Location: In the centre of the town of Varadero, a very short walk (about 80 metres) to the beach.

great time

i have been going to Cuba now for 12 years so i will be very honest about this resort people who say the resort is bad it is because they think a 4 star or a 5 star is like in Canada so they find things to complain about but here is the truth about this resort i have stayed in 4 stars down to 2 stars so know a lot of the resorts in Varadero this resort is 36 years old it is out dated needs repairs and while we where there which was Sept 9 to the 17 2016 they where working on it painting repairing things that where broken they are trying hard to fix it and get it back to a 4 star like it was the rooms where very clean small but clean no bugs at all the air worked great we turn it on while not in the room came back to the room we had to turn it off it was so cold in the room the maid we had was great she did a great job in the room we asked here for more towels the next day there was 5 towels instead of the 2 like they give you the food at this resort i was very happy with i stayed at 4 stars and the food at Sunbeach was better then the food at 4 star resorts i was very surprised by this Mind you they had a lot of fish and pork but it was very good and the staff in the buffet our server was Jaxlin she was great she saved our table for us every day the knew what we drank for breakfast lunch and dinner and had it on the table when we got there she was great all the staff was great in the buffet only had one bad one when Jaxlin was off for one day the entertainment was ok the same thing just about every night so got a little boring Only one night where they changed it up so over all the resort is very good for a 2.5 star maybe by next year at this time it might get back to a 4 star like it use to be

Affordable and Close to the Beach

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 just to be on the safe side. Service is not quite as polished as at some other places, but it is on an acceptable level all the same. The beach is just a short walk away across the street, and the main shopping street in Varadero is right around the corner. There are lots of restaurants there, or you can take a cab to the nightlife. Now when I arrived at this hotel, I met new people right away and had a great time socializing with everyone over the course of my trip. At the end of the day, how much you enjoyed your trip will depend on what you make of it.

Left feeling disappointed, wouldn't return

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 rooms are average but clean. The wifi didn't work (unsure if this was the hotels issue or varadero in general) the food was good and offered quite a large variety to choose from. Some staff very helpful and friendly and others weren't at all. We had to pay more than was shown online which was another disappointment. Overall pretty disappointed and wished we just stayed at a casa for the price we paid. On a positive note the location is good and close to a great beach.

Go or not go

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 dirty. The beach is very good.

Bugs in bed...

Not fit for a dog. Food like cat food. Rooms crawling with bugs , ants and mites. Air con dangerous with water spluttering out and wires exposed. Staff unhelpful and unfriendly. Pool like a swamp with scum floating on the water and plastic cups collecting all over. Unsafe tiles around pool...etc, etc. Couldn't stay here!!! All inclusive but with very limited drinks. Hard to comment on food because didn't return after the first time. Table cloths filthy though.
