Stayed here in December and returned for a week in March. Upon arrival there was a large group ahead of us, but within half an hour, or less we were all checked through quickly by smiling, efficient staff. A great start to a good vacation. Stayed on the Luna side with a 3rd floor room in Building 6, quiet,with a...

I have wanted to go to this resort for a long time... since they don't allow 4 ppl to a room (even with kids), I didn't get to go until now. This hotel was supposedly amazing... in its day. I should have known that the years and the sea and the fact that Sol is a government owned and run...

Our family of three spent a week here in March 2017. We stayed on the quieter Luna side but took advantage of the entire resort - all within a 10 minute walk. We had a great experience in every restaurant, bar, and pool. The beach was absolutely lovely with snorkelling right off shore (we brought our own gear). I am...

Each time we have visited SRLM we have seen gradual improvements to the hotel: the rooms are slowly being renovated, the food is improving and hopefully by our next visit the washrooms on the Mares side will be renovated! But the hotels greatest asset are the staff. This is the reason why we return and I am sure why lots...

This resort is full of potential. It is dated, but if they would ever do a much needed renovation on the buildings, walkways and other buildings, walls it would be one of the most beautiful resorts in the area. Food is ok, not a big variety, but you will not go hungry. The atmosphere is great, service ok, but i...

Visited the Sol end of Feb beginning of March. This was my 5th overall trip to Cuba and 4th resort. I am 22 years old and visited with my mother and two aunts. Resort grounds : This resort is older so it's lush in palm trees and other plants. The grounds are very dark at night there were many times...

Worst resort I have been to in Cuba. First night we stayed in the Luna part where they put us in a room just above the entertainment stage which meant we couldn't sleep until 2am. We asked them to move rooms and thankfully they moved us to the Mares part which was more peaceful (with a stunning view of the...

My wife and I stayed at the Sol Rio de Luna y Mares for a week at the end of February. I had read the mostly positive reviews and felt this hotel and property more than met expectations. This was my seventh trip to Cuba, and I feel in general that the hotels have improved quite a bit since my...

We travelled with 3 other couples for 2 weeks. 3rd time to Cuba,first but hopeful that it will not be the last to Sol Rio. Not the fanciest or classiest hotel we have stayed in but it is the place where we felt the most comfortable, relaxed and pampered. Staff are well trained, hard working, and friendly. Some things we...

This is the first resort my husband and myself have returned to. We were here last year and just returned February 21st to 28th. Everything was excellent once again. Staff are wonderful, food was great and the beach is just beautiful. The best part of this resort is that you never have to worry about getting a lounger. There are...
