LOVE this beach. It was my first time in Cuba and we decided to head to Varadero as we've read plenty of positive reviews on the beauty of this beach and true enough, it's paradise!!! The water is so shallow, you can walk far right into the sea! If you're visiting Varadero, a visit to the beach is a must!... More

The Beach at Royalton Hicacos is quiet and calm. Very clean. NO sales people harassing you like some other destination...

I have been to many beaches in North America and the Caribbean and believe me, Varadero boasts some great fine sand beachfront. This is a peninsula with a Grand Canal that cuts through some of it for the bigger boats. There is every type of beach life there. Early in the morning you can catch glorious sunrises over the sea...

It was fantastic! So clear, great for snorkeling!! They keep the beach nice and clean and there is security. They have shaded areas, which is great.

Amazing beach with white sands and warm clear water. Definitely the best beach I have ever seen. Worth a visit if you are near by in Cuba.

every hotel more or less has the same strip of beach which is endless. We have never been to a bad beach in Cuba although people have told us about black sand in the south. We have been mostly to Holguin, Varadero, and Cayo Coco and have yet to see a bad beach.

We were (2 rooms, 4 people) in Melia Las Americas in Varadero and didn't like the drunken tourits abusing of the "all inclusive " although the French Manager did all his very best to make us feel good. Our experience of Cayo Santa Maria at the Royalton as beach and as people visiting the hotel was a much nicer experience.... More

Clear waters, fishes swimming around your feet. Nice and warm sea. The only downfall was the beach wasn't very wide.
