I have stayed here twice with my wife and will definitely go back again and again. The staff are very courteous and friendly with the exception of the main bar bartenders. The beach is never overcrowded and spacious with perfect white sand and clear blue ocean for a very relaxing time on the beach. The layout of this resort is...

We stayed here for the second part of our twin break holiday and we enjoyed it . The beach is absolutely fabulous and the sea is so beautiful! And clear! On our arrival our check in was quick and easy, cold towels and a drink was given to us while we filled in the forms and our rooms were allocated...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and it was not enough. This place is beautiful and I wish we had double the time. The beach is absolutely beautiful, the staff is super friendly and accommodating, the entertainment was really fun and you can't beat the space. We loved playing in the pool, swinging on the hammock and...

The hotel has a great reputation, but unfortunately does not quite live up to it. It should be a 4/5 star hotel. But it lets itself down. The setting is amazing, certainly the best grounds of any hotel in the area. The hotel is is surprisingly quite tired, saying that it is only 12 years old. There is a "lazy...

Royalton Hicacos Varadero The holiday was booked through Thomson and once again we were very impressed by their organisation. The Dreamliner flight was excellent and the upgrade to Premium was worth every penny. The first impressions of the hotel were good with a warm welcome after a slightly hesitant start. Taken to our room by our butler Betty who was...

The beautiful white sands and clear blue waters of Varadero beach made our search for peace and relaxation this getaway become fully realized. For our first trip to Cuba, a stay at the Royalton Hicacos was a great decision. Friendly and accommodating staff, well kept grounds, clean and good sized rooms left us never wanting. Most surprising, as opposite to...

This was our first 5 Star Trip & we treated ourselves to a Diamond Club ( DC ) upgrade. The DC experience was completely worth the extra $'s. DC customers have their suites in a section by themselves, away from the noise, with our own small pool, bali beds, & close walk through the trees on a trail to our...

We planned our honeymoon in Cuba and Varadero was our last leg of the journey. The resort itself is very good, if you have your expectations tuned to Cuban standards. An all-inclusive luxury resort yes, but possibly not the same "luxury" that you would experience outside of Cuba. Having said that, the hotel is the best you can find in...

In my view the best looking hotel in Varadero with a tasteful decor, stunningly maintained grounds and very spacious rooms. The pool is good too and there is lots of it with plenty of loungers available , I chose to spend most of the time on the beach where loungers are brought to chosen spot and plenty of activities are...

My hubby and I just stayed at the Royalton (Jan 21-28, 2017). I am not sure why anyone would have anything negative to say about this resort. I will break things down into sections for easy reading!
