Any and Francisco and their family are great hosts and helped us to feel very welcome. They had thought of everything we could need in the double ensuite room and the breakfasts and dinner were delicious. Vinales is very busy, so much going on, and lots to do..but once you walk out into the countryside, it is very beautiful. Enjoy!

Wonderful Casa. Clean with air conditioning with a few extras in the room. Nice friendly people and lovely extended family. Francesco speaks very good english and has helpful advice. Great breakfasts. A bit difficult to find but persevere - it's worth it.

Our first "Casa Experience". We didn't know what to expect.....but everything was great: very helpful and friendly people, nice room and delicious food (even the cheese with coconut desert 😉)! If you find this Casa, don't look further.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Cristal! The room we stayed in was stand-alone in back of the main house and was much more modern in terms of fixtures and bathroom than anywhere else we stayed in Cuba. There was a king size bed, which is also not very common, and good AC. Francisco and his family were very...

The best casa particulares in Viñales - clean, extras, and beautifully landscaped, with an amazing roof top settee and view of the gorgeous trees mountains. Peaceful, quiet and welcoming - we will definitely be returning :)

This was a very nice and clean casa in the charming village of Vinales. Annie welcomed us very friendly and with a huge smile. The room was large and clean, so was the ensuite bathroom. The fridge was filled with drinks. We were only here for one night (unfortunately) and we ate dinner in the lively village but the breakfast...

This was definitely one of our best stays in Cuba. Francisco and Any were such friendly hosts and provided us with all the information we needed to visit the area. The room was just great and we completely adored the rocking chairs. They were perfect for our evenings in Viñales. Definitely recommend this casa!
