Best trip in cuba with a special mention to the Manager Tiziana Gomez

We stayed at this hotel in late January and it was our best vacation in Cuba with a special treat that we have never had in any hotel we traveled to. Thanks to Tiziana Gomez, the manager of this wonderful hotel, she was incredibly professional, with her brilliance in what she does and with a smile all the time for all the customers. It makes us feel at home.This is the first time we comment on tripadvisor because I believe that in this case it deserves it. Everything was amazingly wonderful, the food, the staff, the beach, the friendliness and especially to Tiziana from the first day until the last one to be aware of us, making me feel, like at home.I will only go back to that hotel, with her presence, because she makes the difference.See you soon and thanks for this immemorial vacation

Wonderful relaxing week

This was our first visit to Cayo Santa Maria and the first at a Royalton resort. This adults only resort (all inclusive)has the best Cuba has to offer - beautiful beach , gorgeous pool, nice rooms and actually good food. No buffet and quiet - but not much else to complain about. The best part of this resort- the staff throughout - pleasant hardworking folks out to help you make the best of your vacation. Special thanks and kudos to Diego our butler and Adrian our server at the Eggscellence restaurant. Great week!

As advertised quiet,beautiful resort,great beach

Thank you to Lucky(Manager), Mario (Butler),Lissette (Maid) for making the Royalton a home away from home. All requests were promptly,courteously completed and then some.Previous reviews adequately describe the resort and I can only add that you will not be disappointed. The nightly entertainment deserves mentioning and it is first class.Previous reviews have commented that some problem exists with supper. This was correct, But through Lucky's efforts significant improvement was implemented almost immediately.We saw Lucky daily throughout the resort making small but positive changes. This resort satisfied our expectations and we will be returning.

second time better then the first

This was our second time at this hotel, we were there three years ago and it is still heaven on earth, nice beach, nice personnel, exceptional service and it is a very quiet. We also love it because it is very small (108 rooms)

A Second Amazing Trip to the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria!

What can I say? We had a great time last year so didnt think twice about going back again this year! We emailed the hotel after booking the trip and asked to be in the same building as we liked it's location...sure enough, not only in the same building (there are only 10) but even the same room...with the same butlers (Lester and Diana...both amazing!!!) and even the same maid, Alina...thank you so much Alina, you are great!Despite the weather not cooperating the entire week, we (and the couple we went with...having sold them on the Royalton as well) still had an amazing time. We met up with a couple we had seen last year, and spent many a fun hour (and happy hour) laughing and having a great holiday. Thank you to the Royalton for an amazing, relaxing, calming holiday!A couple of other comments I wanted to mention this time around...specifically about suntan lotion...bring LOTS!!! Trying to find suntan lotion is like trying to find the Lost City of Atlantis! There is a market area between the Royalton and the neighbouring Memories resort with lots of stores and restaurants...very nice...but finding suntan lotion was almost impossible...when our friends did find it, two small bottles cost more than $50...muy loco!!The only negative about the resort was that the last couple of days, they seemed to be running out of supplies...maybe a supply truck didnt arrive but there was only one bottle of ketchup for the entire restaurant and they ran out of buns for the burgers...both these things were only a mild inconvenience and did not affect our love of the Royalton at all! We plan to return in the future to continue to enjoy their hospitality!
