Sol Río de Luna y Mares is an all-inclusive resort that rises in the most beautiful location: Playa Esmeralda, on the north cost of Holguín.

Playa Esmeralda is one of Cuba's more stunning beaches and is only about an hour away from the city of Holguín. The beauty and tranquility of this white sand beach fringed by lush tropical vegetation is the main reason to choose this resort, which also features well maintained grounds, very friendly staff, and a wide array of activities, both for adults and children.

The resort is composed of two sections, Sol Club Río de Mares and Sol Club Río de Luna, each one with its pool, restaurants and bars. Concerning the rooms, they are quite spacious, comfortable and kept very clean. But it must be said that many are also dated, since not all the rooms have as yet been renovated.

Food receives enough positive comments as well as shows and entertainment.
