We went to the Royalton Dec 16 to 23rd and had a amazing time there. We've been to many other 5star resorts in Mexico, Dominican and Jamaica but this stood out by far as our most favorite. The staff and service is incredible. It is a nice change to be served in a restaurant by those who are professionally trained to do so. What a big difference from the rude unkept servers in Toronto!
The resort is well kept. Our room was immaculate. We turned off the ac. And left our balcony door wide open to let the fresh air in.
The beech was the most clear and calm we've seen of all the places we've been. Water is clean and perfect to take a dip in. We spent many days lounging on the beech or playing volleyball with some of the guests and resort entertainers. Our only recommendation would be to get a ping pong table. The resort next door, which you have unlimited access to has one but it's a bit of a walk.
We didn't expect much of the food given that Cuba has a bad rep for it but again we were blown away. It was the best. All meals were a la carte with a different menu every night. Fresh, tasty, and nice presentation. I would like to see a menu with Cuban dishes that we could try.
Bar service was excellent and quick.
Entertainment was superb. We had a show every night with extremely talented dancers and singers who were professionally trained. No Mickey mouse stuff here. It's the real deal. Entertainment in the restaurants was very classy. One night we had a 3 person guitar band playing wonderful tunes. When we went back to our room and turned on the tele it was playing their music video! Royalton truly gets the best of the best.
If you are looking for a low key place that focuses on relaxation and and provides that personal touch of added service and attention to detail this is the place for you. We will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you Royalton!
