Simply Amazing !

We have traveled to Roylton as a family just after opening after Hurricane Irma.They did an amazing job restoring the property in almost no time(2 month).This is by far the best resort I have been in Caribbean. The best adults only place to relax and get pampered. The food is very good, drinks selection and quality is excellent. The entertainment team is wonderful (gotta love those free foot massages). Servers & bartenders know exactly what you want. Management is very friendly and attend quests on a personal level.The service is top notch. They pay high attention to every single detail and try to fix the problem right away if anything is not up to your standards.Want to mention few names and ask management to notice this people for the wonderful & amazing work they do. They really make your stay even better.1) Antonio from the snack bar2) Mario from entertainment team3) Yuslenka from quite pool bar (best pina colada EVER)4) Eddy, Lily & Luis from Lobby bar5) Our buttlers Mario & LeandyBottom line, we were extremely pleased with the resort. Everything was by far more that what was expected. Will come back here in a heart bit.

The Best Resort ever

Royalton Hotel is the best hotel that I wisit, and I travel allot for business and pleasure, food, rooms and especially staf deserve 5+ on my scale. I vas here with my 3 friends two days afther re-opening from huricane destruction, and I can tell you one thing, you can immagine that was huricane destruction there, everything is TOP and ready for tourists. I was enjoying there and the worst part is when I was have to leave, because I would love to stay there whole month, so my recommendation visit Royalton because I shure will be back. P. S. You need to experience that staff and kindnes of Royalton services. :)

Best vacation

The best hotel that we visited in Cuba. High class, luxury with your own buttler, great drinks, amazing boutique hotel. It is small so rooms are close to the beach amd to the pools. Highly recommended!

  • Marko P :

I am really impressed with resort. I arrived here with my friends just one day after opening (after hurricane). I was little sceptic what will i see because I saw informations about damage and power of chatastrofy. When i arrived i couldnt even notice that just 2 months ago here was hurricane. Evertything is new, refreshed, rooms are amazing, beach is beautiful, swimming pool is nice and food is perfect. Also bars are full of perfect drinks and coctails with nice professional barmens. Service people in resort are so kind and polite. Also internet is working fine.I have much experience in hotels and resorts and resort Royalton is on top of my list after this visit. I am sure i will be back very soon with my friends and family to relax, enjoy and spend fantastic vacation here!

Just before Irma

It was our 10th time at the Royalton resort. It has become our second home for our vacations. Obviously we return there because we love this paradise, the beautiful beach, it's à la carte restaurants and its impeccable service. Their best features are the hotel personnel who put their hearts into making our stay memorable. Special thanks to our butler Noelvis who makes a mission out of taking care of us. In September 2017, we were evacuated because all the Cayo Santa Maria resorts were being closed as hurricane Irma was approaching. We were impressed with all the hotel staff that showed such commitment. while preparing the hotel shutdown they continued their excellent service and were worrying about our safety. We hopped on the last bus leaving the hotel and the hotel directors even joined us for the transfer to Varadero. We were to leave the next day to fly back home. Erasmo Félix Lopez, José Luis Meja, and Billy Chapman ( the 3 directors) supported us during the bus ride and also throughout our overnight stay at the Memories Varadero. It was as if the Royalton spirit had come with us. We wanted to give them our best thanks because they inspired calm and trust during this period filled with uncertainty. The Royalton clients were pampered considering the circumstances. Caroline Lessard and David Thibodeau join us to honour all the Royalton employees for their commitment and courage. We are definitely spending our next vacation at the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria. Pierre Légo and Magalie Lessard
