The ultra all-inclusive- adults only (18 years and over) Hotel Royalton Hicacos is one of the most resplendent and impressive hotels in Varadero, known as the jewel of the Caribbean.

The entrance is a scenic play on a Polynesian theme, with thatched walkways over landscaped water courses.

The 404 rooms - all Junior Suites - are distributed in three-story gracious buildings, with terracotta floors, lively color schemes, calming blue fabrics, dark hardwoods, and a lovely contemporary feel.

All rooms are quite similar but Diamond Club Junior Suites enjoy exclusive extra perks.

Though Royal Hicacos Resort and Spa is commercialized as a "couples-only" it is not infrequent to find other types of guests like small families or groups of friends; but it never feels like being over-congested and it remains a relaxing place, with chill out or smooth jazz playing throughout the hotel (live music in selected areas of the hotel).

Beautiful pool grounds are very nicely kept; main pool is adorned with bridges, waterfalls and features a swim-up bar. Furthermore there are two smaller pools and four Jacuzzis.

Hotel beach is of some 50 meters of white fine sands and shallow crystal waters which are great and safe to swim in.

A wide range of sports including diving (for certified divers) is included.

Overall, guests will find a wide array of services and locations – some exquisitely elegant -, varied food and restaurant options; nice, spacious and clean rooms with proper air conditioning and a very helpful staff.

This hotel is widely accepted by visitors and many of them like to repeat the experience. It has more than 7 thousand opinions on Trip Advisor and 4.5 ranking.
