Everything about this resort if amazing. The hotel is carved into a natural setting leaving room for birds and butterflies. The staff are some of the best. We stayed in Royal Service, but mostly stayed in the hotel part of the facility. The food was always excellent. Met a bunch of great people. Thank you to the staff and everyone... More

We paid the extra money to stay at the Royal Service and it was worth the price. This was our first time at this resort and for everyone else it was their 2nd or 3rd time there. This is the first resort I have been to that has a pillow and linen menu to choose from. I heard many complaints... More

I recently spent a week at this resort. I have now stayed twice in the last five years. The hotel staff are excellent. You can expect kind, caring people who work here long term. The resort is well maintained and clean. The grounds are well kept, and meticulous. The food is outstanding, with the buffet being the best feature! The... More

The vacation in Royla was a dream. Here you could relax in peace. All the staff were very friendly. The rooms were very modern and clean. Especially nice was the small beaches in the Royal Service. For meals, we were in the buffet restaurant. There were plenty of food for everyone.

We returned on January 23, 2015 from a wonderful week stay at this resort. Only regret is that we had to return home already! Will be back next winter and hopefully for a longer stay. What we liked best: - The peace and quiet around the pool and on the beach. No loud music, little to no loud activities, no... More

This is the first review I have ever written, and part of me didn't want to (the part that wants to keep this gem a secret for selfish reasons). That said, I felt compelled given how good this experience really was. I have travelled extensively, including multiple trips to at least 8 islands in the Caribbean. Royal Service was so... More

We travelled to the resort at the end of September 2014 for our honeymoon. We had never been to Cuba before so it was an experience to say the least!
