My husband and I arrived may 11. Greeted by a cool towel and glass of champagne, our check in was a breeze. They took our passports and collected out info, then we were off to the diamond club lounge for the tour of the resort! Rene, who was one of our butlers had such a great personality, he really knows...

If you're looking for a relaxing vacation with a beautiful beach thus charming resort is what you're looking for. We had the pleasure of visiting the Royalton May 10th. The food was very good. Everyone that works at the Royalton Hicacos were friendly and helpful. If you have the opportunity to go snorkeling I recommend you go to the beach...

It was a wonderful vocation in May. The weather was perfect the whole week. Beach is wide and clean, and you can walk a long distance both sides, it will take more than 1 hour. The food was great. A big variety of salads and fruits. Excellent service. Clean room. Intertaiment: foam party, NRG2GO fitness professionals: yoga, Zumba and Aqua...

Well, that was our first time at the Royalton Hicacos Varadero. We normally fly to Cayo Coco, but this time decided to give it a shot. The service was fantastic. Staff is well trained and totally contributes to relaxing and non intrusive adult-only atmosphere. The choice of food was much better than any other Resorts we stayed in Cuba. Everything...

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and attention to detail. Food for Cuba was great! Lots of variety and good quality. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. I would recommend this resort. The only thing we did not like as a large group was that our a la carte dinners were difficult and time consuming to organize. Excursions...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights at the end of April beginning of May. The resort is nicely laid out with lots of bars, restaurants etc but the highlight for us was the amazing beach. We have been all over the world but this beach was the best, beautiful white powder sand, safe sea and not at all...

After a long long transfer from Havana we arrived at the Royalton to be met with a very crowded reception with nowhere to sit down initially. We were handed a tepid damp towel and some of our group were given a glass of sparkling wine. After about 15 minutes I asked if the rest of us would be given a...

Dear Alaine, Thank you very much for providing your feedback after your recent stay at our hotel as your comments help us to avoid punctual issues that shouldn't be happening.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and was very happy with most things. Some areas are rundown and was disappointed that the water areas surrounding and running through the grounds were all empty and were being renovated. The room was nicely furnished and roomy. Cleaning, maid service, etc was of good standard with the option of daily clean bed...
