The holiday got off to a great start with Premier class flights and private taxi from the airport to this stunning hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were extremely well looked after. On arrival, we were greeted with a glass of bubbly and introduced to one of our butlers, David who showed us around the hotel, pointing out the...

The staff ( Albanys, Beatrice,Yuniel, Yunetzi, Veronica, Gorge, Big Alex, Rene, Iliana -just to name a few! ) all went...

This review is intended for all prospective guests to the resort, as well as a thank you to the staff and management at Royalton Hicacos. I stayed at this resort last week and had the opportunity to teach daily yoga classes to the guests. This resort far exceeded any expectations I had going in. This was my 4th trip to...

Needed a place to chill after Havana but not having done all inclusive before we did not know what to expect. We were not disappointed to the extent that this was a top quality hotel with good food, very good entertainment, excellent cocktails, beautiful beach, very good if a little chilly pools and a very spacious and comfortable junior suite...

There have been alot of improvements around the resort so it looks even better. I loved the pitchers of water with fruit in them placed in...

I'm afraid this is a very late review. We stayed last this time last year, my inspiration to write is we stayed in the Royalton Hideaway in Cancun this year and what a difference. The hotel in Varadero is a real delight. Colonial construction with well spaced blocks and gardens to split up the very pleasant setting. A beach to...
