Highly recommend going with him. As he used to work in the hotel he is well respected and trusted. Don't miss out on... More

We were at the Sol for the last two weeks of April 2015 and I can honestly say it is the best resort we've been at in Cuba thus far out of six at various locations. We stayed in the Luna section which was... More

We arrived on April 20, and the weather was phenomenal for our entire stay. 35+ degrees every day. The beach was beyond beautiful, the staff were excellent, and the... More

My husband and I loved Cuba. We have been to Varadero, Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria. This year we wanted to go to Holguin. Friends of ours told us to go to the Sol Rio de Luna Y Mares. We were hesitant because we normally go to a 5 stars. After reading the reviews for a couple of months,... More

Dear Glenys W First of all, we are very thrilled for being part of your celebration. Unfortunely your special dinner brought the rain, very necessary for this zone. It has been great news to know the big moment you spent with us. We hope you can come back to this safe country as soon as possible. Best regards Yunier Zaldívar... More
