We just got back from The Royalton in Cayo Santa Maria and my husband and I had an absolutely amazing time! I have never been to Cuba and was worried about the quality of the hotel/food etc, and I was pleasantly surprised! We went to check out the neighbouring hotels (Memories and Husa) and we couldn't wait to get back to The Royalton! We kept saying how lucky we were to have booked this place and how disappointed we would have been at any other place! It is a true 5 star!
If you're looking for a peaceful, calm and restful place, this is for you! The hotel just opened in December. It runs very smoothly and has modern decor and it's very clean. Very elegant and classy. The pools are very nice. The Royalton offers restaurant meals rather than buffet meals (your butler ~ yes you're assigned a butler, believe it or not, will book all your restaurant reservations). They offer a "turn down" service every night and leave two chocolates on your pillow. The food is good, but the only complaint that I can make is that sometimes it wasn't hot (i.e. the bacon at breakfast). Loved our nightly cappuccinos in the Royalton Cafe, while the pianist played before going to our dinner reservation! While at one of the restaurants once, I asked for something, and the server replied, "Anything is possible". WOW, now that's what I call great service! The staff is wonderful and all are very friendly and kind!
As a guest of the Royalton, you're able to use any of the facilities/restaurants offered at the Memories resorts (5 min walk or a short ride on their golf cart). We enjoyed the Mediterranean Restaurant and the Italian Restaurant located at the Memories Resort (your butler will make reservations for you) - Do not waste your time on any of the buffets offered there...nothing is as good as the food offered at the Royalton a la carte (Sunset Grill, Senses or Eggsellence).
The beach is beautiful...white sand, turquoise water. Lounge chairs were plentiful. Shade or sun spots available.
Bus ride there and back to the airport was very efficient and with new air conditioned buses.
This was our first time away without the kids and I'm happy to say it was a big success! Thank you Royalton for the wonderful memories!
