Royalton Hicacos Resort & Spa

A romantic retreat offering one of the region’s best all inclusive packages.

If you dream of unwinding on the white sands of the finest stretch of the world-renowned Varadero beach or around the pool in a peaceful adults-only evironment then this is the resort for you. Plenty of thatched palapas provide shade from the midday sun and drinks and snacks are served at the charming beach bar El Viejo & el Mar. If you’re able to prise yourself away from the beach, be sure to wander around the tropical grounds which are centred on the meandering lagoon-style pool and criss-crossed with tranquil walkways.

The diving opportunities in the clear waters off the Hicacos Peninsula are outstanding and the excellent all-inclusive package includes a dive three days a week for certified divers (subject to availability and weather conditions). If you’ve never tried diving before, your stay here is a great chance to give it a go with sessions offered in the swimming pool every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It would be a shame to miss out on a post-dive pampering at the full service spa.

The traditionally-designed, split-level suites are a comfortable and spacious base. The simple Junior Suites are great value and overlook the tropical grounds. For a few added extras, it’s worth opting for a Royal Suite. Benefits include private check-in, a minibar which is restocked daily, continental breakfast served in your suite, and a weekly cocktail party. If you choose a Royal Suite or one of the two-bedroom Presidential Suite, you’ll also receive free room service at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
