My Personal Experience
I have never been truly pampered at a resort until my recent visit to this fabulous property. As one of the newest Royalton Resorts, I thought there would be some service blips that would need ironing out, but everything was impressive from the day we arrived until the day we left. The restaurants offered a nice variety of menu options including succulent lobster mains Cuban-style (see below), our suite was always impeccable, the grounds and pools were kept clean at all times and the level of service throughout the resort was constant throughout our stay.
One thing that would be a fantastic addition to bar and restaurant service would be to have a drink menu. Other than that, the few nightly live shows we caught were presented extremely well, the butler service offered the right amount of assistance and the Catamaran Cruise and Santa Clara/Remedios excursions offered through Sunwing and Gaviota Tours were absolutely fantastic.
In a Nutshell
The Royalton Cayo Santa Maria Resort and Spa is perfect for those who truly want to spend some intimate time away together whether you have been dating for a year or are celebrating your golden anniversary. The experience of being taken care of throughout our entire stay was truly special and I cannot say enough about how warm and friendly the resort staff was. This level of service is incomparable to other hotels and resorts across the Caribbean and if you really want to do something special together, this is the place to build new memories and create new love.
A special thanks to everyone who assisted in arranging our Royalton visit including Alejandro Vasquez, Julie Lasante, Omar Duenas, Gaviota Tours and Maite Medina.
