Pure relaxation

What a treat this was. Exceeded my expectations.The whole resort is sophisticated and pure luxury. The gardens are beautiful and are a credit to the gardeners - please tell them that.Our butler Maria was charming - all I wanted was bananas in my room and these were replenished every day.The quiet pool was delightful.I loved the classy entertainment in the lobby and the restaurants each evening - what amazing musicians you have in Cuba.The food did not agree with me but the wine was excellent, not to mention the cocktails.However the service was wonderful - Eddy, Tatiana, Richar, etc etc all charming young men and ladies.I loved the towel art too.All in all everything I hoped for.Judy Cumbria UK

We stayed at the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria February 2-9/ 17 and can't say enough about what a wonderful experience this was. We had an oceanview suite in #6. Our butlers Anna and Alexis were wonderful and always helpful. They went out of their way to make our 40th Anniversary trip so very special. Our maids Yuliet and Alina were sweet and so friendly. They kept our room clean and we were always anxious to come back to find their special treatment of the towels and their sweet notes. The restaurant staff were exceptional , always going out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. The management at this resort is hands on, talking with guests everyday to ensure your stay was everything you expected and more. The food was good, lots of variety and the pool BBQ had a number of options each day. The entertainment staff were friendly as well as all the hard working people who keep the grounds clean and the gardens stunning. A special thank you to the beach staff, the beach is stunning and the service exceptional. I hope we can go back again next year!

Life is a beach

We stayed here towards the end of a two week self drive of Cuba, the staff were without fail fantastic from the gardeners through cleaners to waiting staff and butlers ( Lester and Leandy).This is not our usual holiday style but we had a thoroughly relaxed time enjoying the sun, outstanding beach and Rum and cocktails.The fabric of the rooms is just about in need of an upgrade but everywhere was spotless, and any problems were fixed as soon as they were mentioned.

11th Time to Cuba

Having been to numerous resorts on and off the main island, the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria is numero uno. From the butler service and having best beach in Cuba to the friendliness of all staff including senior management, this is a Return To place. You sleep very well. On the third visit a tree is planted in your name! As Arnold Schwarzeneger says, I vill be back!Bring mosquito lotion as it was a problem. And WiFi, and this is not a complaint against the hotel itself, is almost non-existent. Text messaging works fine.

Second Visit Better

This was our second time at the Royalton one year later and we saw an improvement with the food. Our butler Alexis was amazing! We had issues with not getting the room we had booked 8 months ago...wanted two beds and could only get a king. Alexis and management were in constant contact with us to inform us of other room options but none were worth moving for. Our air conditioner didn't work but they got it fixed right away and loaned us a table fan in the interim. To make up for the inconveniences we received wine, rum and champagne in the room and a trip to the spa in the little town. Grounds were kept up nicely and upgrading the painting while we were there, none of which was disruptive. All service people were wonderful and friendly. With it being our second time back there was a special dinner at the poolside which was lovely and delicious. They really went the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy.Pool/entertainment staff were working hard to get people involved but most of us just wanted to take in the sun on our butts. The one thing that needs to change is the music at the pool. Almost every time we asked for different music we were told it was 'Cuba Day' and as much as I love Cuban music 7 days all day at the pool is a bit much. Plus the entertainment at night was mostly Cuban music. At the end of our stay they also finally lowered the volume which was so loud most of the time.All in all it was another enjoyable trip for my cousin and me and we met some really great people!
