1 of 10 10. Royalton Cayo Santa Maria
Cayo Santa María, Cuba
This lavish resort always finds its way to the top of “best of” travel lists, primarily because of its stunning seaside views and world famous chefs on staff. Make sure to take advantage of the 24-hour room service. Unfortunately, Americans can't travel to Cuba just yet solely for pleasure.
