We visited Varadero and stayed in casa Ieana y Ray for 3 nights. The room was clean, and the couple was very helpful, giving us advise about restaurants and the beach. The breakfast was very good too, coffee, fruits, eggs etc.

Stayed with Ileana and Ray for three nights 14/3/22 to 17/3/22. Rooms were clean with air conditioning, kitchen area if required for self catering and shower room. They were the perfect hosts with breakfast of full bowl of fruit, toast, fruit juices, eggs done as you like fried, omelette, coffee and more. We did not need to eat again until dinner in the evening. The Casa is a very short walk to the beautiful beach where sun Ed’s were on hire for at a very reasonable price.

They are located very close to the beach (almost all casas in Varadero are), but if you want to rent a beach chair there is a hotel closeby where you can rent them for 2$. They are also close to the kite school, if you are interested in taking lessons. Big room with bedroom (2 beds), small kitchen, and bathroom. Fridge in the room with water. Lleana and Ray are very friendly hosts, Ray is a taxi driver and can pick you up from the airport. Ray speaks English which is good if your Spanish is not so fluent. Breakfast is more than correct (juice, fruit, eggs, toast and some pasty with marmelade) for 5$

Casa Ileana y Ray has a very good location, as we found out. It is steps from the beach but a block away from the busy 1st avenue, so there is no street noise. There is a good place to eat nearby with live music, called La Bodeguita del Medio. There is also a very inexpensive and good place around the corner, called El Sabor Cubano. Two blocks away, you can exchange your currency to CUCs at the Cadeca. For some reason, the exchange rate there was better than in other places in Cuba. There is also a shopping center and an artisan market close by. The breakfast they serve is very tasty with fresh juice and good coffee. The place is clean, has AC, internet, good shower and very nice backyard. Malu is their friendly dog - you can speak English to it too. We stayed 1 night and then came back for another night at the end of the trip. The check-out is at 12 but Ray & Ileana offered us to leave the bags until the next evening because the flight was not until midnight. Again, Ray had a good rate to take us to Varadero airport despite it being late at night on the weekend. To add on - I booked this casa through the bbinnvinales website. They do not charge any booking fees.

We stayed three perfect nights at the casa of Ileana and Ray. The accomondation is a whole apartment, which includes a bedroom (AC, TV, safe, towles), a bathroom and a kitchen (big fridge) with a table and 4 chairs. The casa is perfectly located. After only 2 minutes walking you arrive at the beautiful beach. Luckily at this spot there are no big hotels located, so it's calm and less crowded. You find a few shops such as a supermarket (1 min), a tobacco store (3mins; the cheapest I found in Varadero, and I've been in 5 of them), and many delicious restaurants in 2-5 min walking distance. The breakfast was delicious. We had the best Papayas and the best Juices. The whole Family is very kind and loving. At the last day our flight went off in the evening, but check-out-time was at 12 pm. Ileana and Ray offered us their private bathroom to shower before departure, so that we could enjoy our last day at the beach. We thank you so much for that amazing stay at your casa and wish you all the best for the future. Maybe we'll see us again in Germany when you come to visit your relative. Anja & Heiko

After travelling in Cuba for almost two weeks, it was great to arrive at Casa Ileana in Varedero. It was such a nice house with clean rooms and everything you needed, including a delicious breakfast. Moreover, the hosts were the nicest people! I can only give Casa Ileana my best recommendations and I would love to stay there again, if I come back to Cuba.
