When speaking about Guardalavaca, where the Sol Rio de Luna y Mares Resort is situated, it’s hard to ignore the wise words once spoken by Christopher Columbus when he arrived in the region in 1492. He claimed the area to be the most beautiful land he had ever seen, and to this day, it is clear why. Playa Esmerelda is a stretch of pristine white sand, surrounded by lush green hills, and the Sol Rio de Luna y Mares Resort sits directly on this beach, with an exclusive area reserved just for the hotel’s guests.

  • Idyllic beachside location Set beside Playa Esmarelda's pristine beach in Holguin Province, Cuba's jewel in the crown.
  • Reputed to offer exceptional service from all staff The staff at every level make a huge effort to ensure guests receive first class service with a smile. This is practised from the Manager to the chamber staff.
  • Daytime and evening entertainment Daytime programmes include games, dance lessons and ecological excursions whilst evening programmes demonstrate amazing Cuban talent and art.

This resort comprises two hotels, creating an area of 150,000 m2 to play ,relax in and explore. This is the ultimate fun family holiday resort, where everything has been thought of to keep everyone happy. While parents can take time to themselves, lounging by one of the two large swimming pools, strolling down the beach, or working out in the gym, children can have a blast in the children’s club, getting to know the fun characters and doing daily supervised activities that include painting, dancing, storytelling and sports. There is plenty to do for the more active adult as well, including archery, a wide variety of water sports, eco-tours, mini-golf, horseback riding and even dance and Spanish classes.

If families fancy a jaunt off-site, there are a few options to make a day trip. Holguin centre isn’t far away, with shops, bars and restaurants, and for nature lovers, the Bahia Naranjo Natural Park is also close. Here, visitors can enjoy the aquarium and get up-close and personal with the dolphins, in or out of the water.

In the evening, there is double the amount of dining options to choose from, with a wide range of restaurants in both hotels. This resort makes things easy for parents by offering everything a family might need: high chairs, kids’ menus and entertainment, meaning that dinner is a fun time of the evening. Then, if mum and dad fancy a night on their own to visit one of the many bars, or have a dance in the nightclub, the babysitting service is on hand to ensure they get to let their hair down and enjoy their holiday to the full.
