Royal Hicacos Varadero to be fully transformed into Royalton Hicacos by November

Once Varadero's most popular resort for couples, the Royal Hicacos, formerly owned by Sandals, has now changed hands and been added to Canadian hotelier, Memories' Cuba portfolio. The property will be renamed as Royalton Royal Hicacos and refurbishment works will be completed by 1st November 2014.

Royal Hicacos Varadero to be fully transformed into Royalton Hicacos by November

Last Friday, during a training session given by a Memories representative from Cuba, The Holiday Place was informed that the former Sandals Royal Hicacos, currently still open under new management by Memories, will soon be reborn as the brand new Royalton Royal Hicacos as of 1st November.

Shortly after being closed down and later abandoned by the Sandals group, the resort property changed hands to the Canadian chain of hotels, Memories, which is conducting major renovation works throughout the resort's grounds to give it a more updated look, refresh its facilities and represent the new brand.

The hotel has remained open throughout its transformation and adult guests over 18 are welcome to the Royal Hicacos while it is slowly being refurbished and transformed to adapt to the new Royalton brand.

However, the transformation process has meant that some setbacks such as the close-down of some pools and the limited use of some facilities could upset some visitors. Nevertheless, the resort representative made a strong emphasis on the fact that for every facility closed down the resort currently provides an alternative so that no guests misses out on anything and so that no holiday experience in Varadero is dampened by the works going on.

According to her, the renovations are expected to be finished by mid October and the resort will also soon be offering free weddings, just like Sandals did.

The new Royalton Royal Hicacos will be a five-star all inclusive resort catering for adults over 18 only and best suited for couples and honeymooners seeking seclusion, pampering and romance. With a host of fantastic all inclusive facilities that include the use of sauna and steam room at the onsite spa, guests at the new Royalton Royal Hicacos by Memories will be treated to an indulging experience for all the senses.
