          Do the bar tenders/waiters serve you drinks on the beach to your sunbed on the main beach even if you are not part of the 'Royal Service'

          You must be a Royal Service guest to receive beach waiter service. Other guests may use the beach (all beaches in Cuba are public) but will receive service.
