You get two hotels for the price of one at the Sol Río de Luna & Mares, Guardalavaca. It’s made up of two sister hotels, the Luna and the Mares, and you get the best of both places. That means two lagoon pools and five restaurants to pick and choose from. On top of that, the hotel has two aces up its sleeve when it comes to location. Firstly, it’s at the heart of Bahia de Naranjo Natural Park. Secondly, it’s on Playa Esmeralda, one of Cuba’s best-looking beaches, so it’s no surprise it lays on a wide choice of water sports, including windsurfing and catamaran trips.

Sitting quietly on Cuba’s northeast coast, Guardalavaca mixes old world charm with new world luxury. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, the town’s palm fringed golden beaches have the texture of Cuba’s famous sugar. And the seafood goes down as smoothly as the Cuba Libre cocktails.

This colourful property faces out to sea and offers a wealth of facilities in gloriously secluded surroundings. Relax by day on the stunning beach - an ideal setting for spending a lazy day sunbathing. And in the evening there is a charming poolside restaurant to dine in.

Offering spacious rooms and frequent entertainment, there's something for everyone in this complex. And because there are two hotels you get double the fun. There are 2 lagoon pools, loads of activities to choose from, a kids’ club for the little ones, and a jam-packed entertainment programme for the whole family. If you need pampering visit the spa for a massage or beauty treatment.

And your dining needs are covered courtesy of the 5 restaurants, so if you fancy French, Italian or even Mexican, you’ll find them all on the menu. If you’re feeling adventurous and want a taste of the real Cuba, try going to a paladar. These are little informal eateries in people’s houses, where you’ll get home cooked food served up with lashings of home grown hospitality. A typical meal would be sea bass, marlin or lobster dished up with fried bananas and congri – a black beans and rice combo. Prices are low and portions are generous, so be sure to go hungry.

The more active guests should visit the coral reefs which are teeming with exotic clownfish and groupers – and with high-visibility waters, you can't miss them when you’re snorkelling. If you want to scuba dive deeper, off shore you’ve got caves and wrecks with sea turtles and dolphins to see. Or, you could even go deep-sea fishing – friendly, professional crews will show you how to land tuna, sailfish and snapper.

There’s so much to do at the Sol Río de Luna & Mares, Guardalavaca that you will want to return again and again.

Hi there, The entire Caribbean basin is affected by an annual hurricane season (June-Nov), with September and October having the highest number of hurricanes. That said, you'd be unlucky for your holiday to be affected by a hurricane. Many holidaymakers travel to Cuba September and October without so much as a gust of wind. Kind Regards
