Thank you Royalton Crew for making our vacation so incredibly wonderful. It was especially nice when the management guys took the time to ask us our opinion!
I had emailed the resort from the Royalton website to make an advance request for a room with a great view -- and they delivered! It was really quite a treat; an ocean panorama. And what was perfect about it besides the A/C, the bed (once we got extra pillows), the flat screen (to watch the World Cup), the storage, the safe, the cleanliness.? Why, everything! It was huge, the bathroom too.
Marvelous beach (sand like baby powder), literally a hundred palapas, and they'll keep pouring the rum into your glass if you let them! Pools had small tiles missing but who cares? They still looked gorgeous!
Speaking of rum, the lobby bar has a rich assortment of top of the line liquors -- 11 year old rum, Glenlivet, Grahams port, on and on. We tried to drink it all but fell short.....
If the weather forecasts thunderstorms, take heart, they are short and spectacular.
If you love lobster, it's plentiful. And try the crepes...mmmm. If you were late to breakfast, like we were, some things were gone but it didn't matter; it meant we discovered new things! Here's a hint - don't expect maple syrup for your pancakes. Try to find a maple tree in Cuba..chocolate syrup is actually pretty tasty!
And parents -- leave your 18+ kids at home. It's going to be boring for them. This is a quiet place!
In fact, it's one of those places that you want to go back to and that says it all.
