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.

Our Expert's Opinion

Located just steps from one of the most stunning beaches backed by sapphire blue water, this hotel really has the wow factor. Combine the location with the service, - you have your own personal butler - food and facilities, this makes for a top notch beach stay. I highly recommend the fresh seafood barbeque as well as the beachside quesadillas!
