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... More

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... More

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!

This was our first casa stay in Cuba and Any and Francisco could not have been more welcoming. The room was great and the breakfast was lovely. We ate one evening meal there which was also delicious. They both speak good english which was helpful as we were still finding our Cuban feet!!
