Royalton Cayo Santa Maria
Well-regarded beach resort offering high standards of service, stylish accommodation and a good range of leisure and entertainment options.
Cayo Santa Maria has some of the best, talcum powder-fine white sand in the Caribbean, and the beach at the all-inclusive Hotel Royalton is no exception. Lapped by calm, crystal clear water, it offers a first class beach experience. The hotel itself - with contemporary, well furnished Caribbean-style cottages scattered throughout the gardens - is top of the range for Cuba. The friendly, enthusiastic staff - including personal butlers – are always willing to please, and air-conditioned rooms and suites enjoy ocean, pool or garden views.
Catering only for adults, the property manages to combine an ambiance of relaxation while providing daily low-key live entertainment and sports facilities. There are two pools to enjoy, the larger free-form pool is stunning, and you can enjoy a dip from one of many loungers around the edge. Other facilities include a spa and large fitness room. Non-motorised watersports including kayaks, windsurfing, catamaran, paddle boat are available free of charge. Cocktails flow freely from the bars, while meal options, including a barbecue, are substantial and fresh.
