We stayed at this hotel in late January and it was our best vacation in Cuba with a special treat that we have never had in any hotel we traveled to. Thanks to Tiziana Gomez, the manager of this wonderful hotel, she was incredibly professional, with her brilliance in what she does and with a smile all the time for...

This was our first visit to Cayo Santa Maria and the first at a Royalton resort. This adults only resort (all inclusive)has the best Cuba has to offer - beautiful beach , gorgeous pool, nice rooms and actually good food. No buffet and quiet - but not much else to complain about. The best part of this resort- the staff...

This was our second time at this hotel, we were there three years ago and it is still heaven on earth, nice beach, nice personnel, exceptional service and it is a very quiet. We also love it because it is very small (108 rooms)

Ah, Cuba...beautiful people, beautiful beaches, amazing effort:) This was our 3rd time to Cuba. We decided to spend our anniversary at the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria as we were married 10 years ago at Playa Pesquero in Holguin, Cuba. The beach here was the most beautiful we have ever seen.

The Royalton is about a 2 hour bus ride from the airport which isn't too bad. When we arrived we received our room fairly quickly and were very happy with the room and everything about the resort except for the food. The food is all a la carte and is ok but not very good at supper. It appears that...

This was my fourth vacation in Cuba. I seriously doubt that anything could be better than this, inside or outside Cuba. Our room on the second floor of the bungalow overlooked the ocean. The service, cleanliness, food, entertainment, decor, beach, etc. and most important the friendliness of the staff was fantastic. Given the chance again, without hesitation, we would choose...
