awesome expereince

The resort was clean, staff were very friendly and helpful. The pools were clean and beautiful although not as warm as the ocean. The beach was great - kms of white sand. The liquor was top quality and a very wide variety. The bartender at the Infiniti pool made the best drinks. She was awesome. The bar in the lobby was another favorite hangout. The food was good - the ala carte menus varied daily in each of the 3 restaurants. The presentation was great. The lobster and seafood were very good. The shrimp salad was exceptionally good - often ordered again for dessert. Took us a day or two to wrap our heads around ordering off the menu in any combinations or amounts. Much better quality than a buffet as in a lot of resorts. The restaurant staff was great. Most spoke good English and if they didn't understand what you were asking they would get someone who could. Everyone was assigned a butler when they arrived. The butler took you on a tour of the resort when you arrived and was there to answer any questions you had. Ours was super. You need the 220-110 converter adapter. I took along a power bank to charge my phone which i was using for a camera. So we didn't need a converter. However you would need for curling iron our flat iron unless it comes with it.WiFi is 2 cuc for 1 hour. Just remember to disconnect when finished or keeps going on your time. This is the std price all over cuba it seems. There is a market area (shopping area) next to the resort. The bank is located there. Cayo Santa Maria is accessed by a 46 km causeway from the mainland. So you are a long way from the mainland. If going again i would stay 1 in Veradero or Havana then go to Roylton Cayo Santa Maria for a week. We went with Sunwings and you can book tours on the plane in cdn if you wish.

Dream vacation

This is by far my favorite destination vacation. The Royalton Cayo Santa Maria is a long shuttle ride from the airport but the service you get makes up for it. All the staff of this beautiful setting made our stay a memorable one . The food, the room, the bars and the beach was perfect. We even got served pizza at the beach and it was really good. I would definitely return

Awesomely relaxing experience star correction

Obviously i clicked on the wrong stars. It should have been 5 stars! !!Upper pool bartender Danyela was great. Best rum drinks - pina colada, havana lights, and mojito.Diego and Kieran were great butlers.
