Our Opinion

The Royalton Hicacos is a great resort for those who are looking for plenty of activities to do in Varadero. The food here is a bit better than what you'd get at any other resort in Varadero. There are plenty of fresh options to choose from, which is sometimes rare to experience in Cuba. As previously mentioned, this is a resort that has an infinite amount of excursions and activities available for guests. From catamaran cruises to safaris, there's never a shortage of things to do.

The 5 star 'adults-only' Royalton Hicacos Resort and Spa offers the perfect escape to the sun for couples. Located within tropical Varadero, Cuba, this hotel offers guests a 'natural' vacation experience because of its convenient access to Cuba's best powdery white sands, lush tropical gardens and sparkling sapphire-blue waters. With fresh water swimming pools, wedding packages, specialty restaurants, European spa treatments, as well as land and water sports, this hotel puts the 'all' in all inclusive.
Location: Set on Varadero beach, 15 minutes from downtown Varadero, 30 minutes from the airport.

Amazing vacation

Second trip to Royalton Varadero this year.All is great! Service, beech, amenities, management.Really an excellent spot to relax and fix your health. Participated in all activities especially yoga (don't do it in Canada). But in cuba it goes naturally. There was an excellent Canadian instructor from NRG2GO who kept me going every day at 10.15Was nice to see GM Pauline Garcia being hands on with the team and vacationers and being approachable and helpful in resolving any issues. Top notch service!Special thanks to Sandy and Ana at the lobby and Alberto at the main restaurant.Always attentive and welcoming smile.Will definitely make sure that we co.e back.Hope the damage caused by irma is not that bad.

I would like to highlight how wonderful and inspirational my recent experience was at the Royalton. The staff showed customer service at it highest level. This is my profession and I was overwhelmed by the outstanding professional approach in the face of adversity which the hotel showed. I am so grateful for the way we were constantly looked after and the overwhelming care and love there actions stood for. Thank you for staying with us and myself and Tony hope your family are well and able to rebuild yr homes. We will come back soon and look forward to seeing you. Bless you all. Xxxx

The Best Hotel I visited in Varadero

I was at Royalton at the end of August beginning of September with my husband. The weather was beautiful, we enjoyed walking on the beach every day. There were always places in the shadow to spend the day. The food and drinks were great, we had everything we wanted. The Caribe restaurant was one of the best, excellent food and service. There were variety of activities to participate: salsa lesson, aquafit classes, yoga and Zumba classes with ENR2GO instructor. The entertainment team worked great!! Thank you Johny, Veronica, Denis, and rest of intertaiment team!The room was clean and we had our bar filled with water, beer and beverages every single day. The front desk, Anny, was helpful all the time, fast check in and check out, always available currency exchange (2 places). Thank you Yanetzi ( buffet), Ana and Sandy ( main bar) for exellent service. I highly recommend this place for everyone! We will be back for sure. Thanks!!

We have just arrived back from our holiday here which was cut short due to the hurrican Irma. We had an amazing first week, the weather was fantastic and we just chilled out by the beautiful pools or on the fantastic beach with crystal clear water which was so warm it was like stepping into a bath. The room was lovely and the bed absolutely huge and so comfy and the food at all the restaurants and buffet was fantastic. Our Butlers David and Turon were absolutely amazing and couldn't do enough for us. Paradise. Then on Saturday Irma arrived! Well, what can I say except all the staff at this hotel were absolutely outstanding, they kept us all safe, calm,fed and watered whilst we were absolutely petrified, we really thought we were going to die! We cannot thank them enough for this and will be forever grateful. We will be coming back here again for sure as we did have a fabulous holiday prior to Irma as unfortunately we didn't get to do the things we wanted to do like go to Havana or a boat trip as Irma put pay to that! But at least we got home safe and sound.

We had such a chilled relaxed holiday at this hotel & resort. We were disappointed in our first room but the very next morning we we moved to a really lovely room, most comfortable bed & pillows!!! Kept very clean. It's on a lovely site, with pretty much everything u could ask for, drinks, ice cream, snacks ( lovely poolside area which served amazing food between 12 & 3pm & served by the loveliest lady!Beach restaurant, where u could have breakfast or lunch, which was the Mexican restuarant at night( the best meal we had there), was so lovely just to sit & take in the view.Food generally ok, bit hit & miss but always something to stop u being hungry! Bar on the beach.The beach was the loveliest of the Caribbean we've been to, absolutely stunning, soft sand as far as you could see, warm sea which was quite shallow for a fair way, which suited us.Cocktails were gr8 but probably the least alcoholic we've ever had ( too used to Greek & Spanish measures)!!!All the bar staff were fabulous, they all worked so very hard & you didn't sit without a drink for more than a couple of mins! Would definitely recommend this hotel. Many thanks to all staff & their hard work.
