PRDO vs sol rio

Visiting Holguin for the second time in a week. My last time was at Sol Rio which I found to be a good hotel, this time will be at PRDO. How do these 2 hotels compare? I will be coming with 3 friends all males in our early 20’s. Is the entertainment, pool and food better at PRDO? Also curious about how much a taxi would cost if we wanted to go explore Holguin city for a day? Could the hotel make taxi arrangements? Thanks for your feedback!

Let' see...

4 young guys going to Cuba, staying at the PRDO. Hoping you aren't looking to party as it is a more laid back resort. Mostly older guests but can be a mixed bag as they do have a lot of weddings there. Entertainment is like most resorts, live bands and some shows. The PRDO has 2 sections, regular side and the Royal Service. Each has it's own pool. I don't know what the food is like at the Luna Mares as I haven't stayed there but we enjoy the food at the PRDO.

In regards to exploring, haven't done it so can't help you there but there are a lot of people on here who have so hopefully they can give you some advise.

Hope this helps a bit.

I have been to both of these hotels and in my opinion the PRDO food is better. As Shadow1 stated, PRDO can be a bit more of a laid back atmosphere, though my daughter enjoyed herself very much there (she was 19 at the time). If you want to set up a taxi to take you to Holguin (or anywhere else in the area), feel free to email Yoander Perez at yoander06@gmail.com either before you arrive or after.

PRDO is a far superior hotel to Luna y Mares. It's a 5 star compared to a 3 star plus.
