We chose the Royalton Hicacos to celebrate our wedding anniversary based on our great experience at Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, and a recommendation from friends. We were not disappointed! My husband is recovering from a long illness and the hotel could not have been more accommodating. The beach is stunning, the rooms are well appointed and the restaurants are great. To those complaining about the a la carte's - the hotel is providing a modern intepretation of tex-mex/italian etc., so keep an open mind and try them. There is no shortage of things to occupy your time and plenty of amenities - hello spa, gym, 24hr cafe, lobby bar - this list goes on. THANK YOU all.
BUT there were two things that we LOVED the most about this resort - the ever-present variety of live music in the bars, restaurants and even the grounds. It was of a high calibre and made the experience so special, and the wonderful Staff.
As mentioned in many other reviews - these guys do work so hard to make our vacations special, the butlers, the lobby bar staff, the beach bar staff, the guys who put your chairs out every day, the waiters, maitre'd, and the maids. Too many names to mention here but WOW. What special people. THANK YOU all.More
