January is a grim month in the UK so we always want to get away for some sun. We booked her for 7 days after reading reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were super friendly and always happy to do anything for you. There is a lot of refurb going on but that’s to be

We arrived at the resort at 0400 and were in our room at 0500. Would not want to do that again. When we finally got up we met our butler who explained the hotel and what it offered. We had two butlers - David and Tolon. I lost my glasses in the water on the first morning and

Just back from 2 weeks at the Royalton Hicacos Varadero. Having read lots of Reviews before we went, we were expecting a tired and shabby Resort with awful food. It was neither. The journey by coach from Havana Airport was dire. Late at night, pitch black outside and much

the beach is very long and so long walks along the beach are possible, out front of the hotel there are also sidewalks along the road connecting all the resorts and walking there is also possible.

Last time I went to Cuba, I went to the dollar store and brought a whole bunch of toiletries. Liquid soaps, tooth brushes, tooth paste, womans essentials. This was for our maid. She was great. The bartender we typically went to I tipped him 20$ the first time, and he always took care of me. He knew what I wanted when i got there. the last place i went I did not take any taxis or have any butlers, so I dont know about that.

"No Sea Views. All Rooms face gardens."
"We enjoyed top floor but will get the main floor next time as there are no elevators."
"We stayed in 2503. Lots of privacy and a garden view with a small pool."
"Diamond club !"
"Rooms on the east side seem to be quieter. But it's not a noisy resort."
