If you want to get to know Cuba, you must leave Hotels and go to Casas Particulares. In this one, the rooms are simple but clean, and Pepe is a tireless host, giving some tips and talking about cuban history. The food is delicious.

The casa had three beautiful roof decks and hospitable hosts. The hosts were constantly making sure we had everything we needed, including iced drinks, a tv to watch world cup fifa, and even scheduled a salsa instructor before our big night out. My ONLY complaint about this casa was that there were cockroaches in our bathroom. The room was clean,...

We spent 2 nights at this place. The room that we chose (upstairs) was very nice - clean with comfortable double bed, fridge and bathroom. The food was medicore, however we ate only one dinner at Pepe's place as we wanted to try some food in a local restaurant. Pepe was really annoying in trying to convince us that any...

The rooms are spacious and very clean. The food was one of the best we had in cuba. Unfortunetly the behaviour of the owner family wasn't nice at all when the theme is about eating outside or travelling to a next casa that is not recommended from them. (see other reviews)

The house is well located near the center, with a wonderful terrace where to stay and drink good cocktails. It's a pity they do not organise dinner on the terrace! Breakfast and dinner are great with a lot of food and the hosts always at our disposal for suggestions and needs. The room have a window on a small corridor...

Perfect location, great food, lovely people! Especially the terrasse is beautiful and gives you a very private room to relax and chill after a lovely day in Cienfuegos. The best place to stay! Look no further.

We slept here for two nights and we enjoyed our stay! The building is very big and you can relax yourself in three or four different patios with a nice view of the city. The food is very very good and Pepe and the family are very very friendly, always ready to helps us with suggestions. Highly recommended!

Upon arriving we were shown another room than booked. On the rooftop is some sort of suite-room. It is more expensive than the "regular" rooms. After refusing to pay for this room we were shown to another room. Smaller. Much smaller. Since there is just 2 of us that was not a problem. What was a problem was the fact...
