Private butler, full bar in the room included that was replenished every day (Rum, whisky, vodka, cold drinks etc),...

We arrived to our home away from home on Dec. 27/16 to spend our 3rd New Year's there. As usual we were warmly greeted by reception with hugs & kisses, I said we are home again. As usual the food, service and staff were fantastic, can't say enough from our butlers Betty, LeDuan and of course Alex in Diamond Club,...

The bed was extremely comfortable but very high. Our room was very large with a nice view over the garden and was also very quiet at night time. The airconditioning is set at 21.5 deg C and felt a lot colder we turned it off and were quite comfortable. From the second day onwards we had hot water only in...

We spent one week at the Royalton and had a wonderful time. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, especially our butlers Doremis and Fernados. The rooms are huge and very clean. We tried the Italian and Caribe restaurant which the food was very good. The buffet had a huge selection of different food and the staff were very...

We went on a 7 day stay and overall had a wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and clean with a resupplied minibar, good sized balcony and comfortable massive bed. On occasions the water in the bathroom had a very low flow or went off completely but only for a very short period. I suspect this happened when several apartments...

A lovely hotel set in pretty, well-maintained grounds with meandering waterways. The rooms are large with a bedroom and sitting room area. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in in a hotel. The cleanliness is excellent and most of the staff are very friendly. The buffet restaurant has a good selection of food. There...

I would start by saying that this resort is beautiful, and has stunning beaches, the best in the region. The facilities are excellent and there are many great staff who go out of their way to be helpful. But there are too many staff who appear grumpy or disinterested especially in the buffet restaurant and notably the pasta chef. The...

We were really happy with our choice of hotel for our visit to Cuba, the roomstandards, food & bar's were excellent, as well as most of the straff. However, we thought the staff in the bistro/café area could improve a lot... we were on a visit for 2 weeks and they always acted like they hated their job and the...

This is not the first time we stay in a Varadero resort, but the Royalton Hicacos Varadero Resort is the best. The room is large and clean. The property is large enough so that you can easily find a quieter place to relax, or join the entertainment staff for fun actions. We really enjoyed Zumba classes led by Rachel, an...
