Memories Holguin
(formerly Riu Playa Turquesa, Sirenis Playa Turquesa and Occidental Grand Playa Turquesa

Hotel Riu Playa Turquesa Holguin Cuba    Canadian administration (Blue Diamond)



Playa Yuraguanal is an artificial beach of about 540 meters of white sand and crystal clear water. Because it is an artificial beach, algae tend to regain territory. The staff have to remove manually seaweeds on a daily basis. However, the beach is beautiful, a bit small for walkers. There are chairs, palapas, a bar and watersports center for marine activities. You may rent snorkeling gears (free for one hour) at the beach club house.


Formerly Occidental Grand Playa Turquesa and recently Sirenis Playa Turquesa and Riu Playa Turquesa. Since Decembre 1st, 2014, this hotel is administered by the Canadian hotel group Blue Diamond (Sunwing). The hotel occupies the entire area of the beach. Originally built to be a Club Med, this project never saw the day (political issue). The « highlight » of this hotel are the pools. People with reduced mobility should be aware that this hotel has a lot of stairs.
