In 1995 was inagurated the Hotel Sol Río de Mares with 242 rooms to increase the hotel capacities in the tourist pole of Holguín.

At ends of the same 1996 Sol Melía comprises these two adjoining hotels in a classy resort denominated Hotel Sol Río de Luna y Mares Resort, 4 Stars, under the formula of "All Inclusive.".

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Sol Rio de Luna y Mares in Playa Esmeralda, Holguin, Cuba. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2019
