Sol Rio de Luna & Mares Resort details

Set in one of the most beautiful parts of Playa Esmeralda, this place is every inch the good-looking beachfront retreat.

Framed by exotic greenery and set alongside a stretch of ice-white sand, the Sol Rio is in a first class spot. What’s more, there are a whole host of free watersports on offer at the beach – think windsurfing, snorkelling and catamarans – so there’s plenty to do besides relaxing.

Alongside the tropical gardens that cocoon the complex, the lagoon-like pool scene deserves a special mention. There are two huge outdoor pools to choose from, as well as a selection of roomy sun terraces. Factor in a poolside bar serving made-to-order cocktails throughout the day and it’s a great place to chill out.

Head inside, meanwhile, and you’ll find the vibe is just as laidback. Fresh cream walls provide the backdrop for simple wooden furniture and beds dressed in soft red cotton. Balconies or terraces come as standard, as do views of the gardens or the sea. In-room comforts like air-conditioning, satellite TVs and mini-fridges complete the picture.

On the food front, this place serves up no less than five restaurants. And with everything from big international buffets to authentic Cuban cuisine on the menu, there’s always plenty of choice. There’s a piano bar, too, and a beachfront disco, so nights at the Sol Rio can be as laidback or as lively as you like.
