Mignelys & Juan were so friendly, helpful & accommodating. We had dinner on the roof terrace - excellent lobster dinner. Miglnelys arranged a horse ride for us & even exchanged money saving us from standing in a long line at the Cambio. El Balcon is centrally located and close to everything. Wonderful visit all around to Vinales.

After a long drive to Viñales we were welcomed by the family, shown our rooms and given some fresh juice to help us relax. The casa is beautifully kept with a great roof terrace for enjoying the sunset over Viñales with one of Juanito's potent mojitos. We requested dinner on our first night, and then again the following nights as...

Vinales is a must see when traveling to Cuba. It was very different from anywhere else that we visited in the country. El Bacon de Mignelys y Juanito was the perfect place to stay for the 2 nights and 3 days that we explored the town. The house is very modern. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The...

We'd had a long day travelling and the moment we arrived, we were greeted with open arms and a fresh guava juice on the house. Mignelys and Juanito are brilliant hosts. Mignelys speaks good english and both were helpful when we wanted to explore the town. Being situated so close to the town centre and also providing areas to relax...

Casa el Balcon is situated a couple of streets back from the main square in Vinales so is ideal for all activities and for the restaurants, bars and the market in Vinales. The casa was extremely clean and our room was modern with a luxurious bathroom (including a power shower). Mignalys was incredibly friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English, making...

If you expect to stay in a warm casa with friendly Cuban, you are gonna be disappointed. The casa is run by a married couple: the husband doesn't talk much, the wife just asks at what time you want to have breakfast or dinner. You are treated as a tourist to spill money. The casa is quite modern but the...

We really (really) suggest the El Balcon del Ermitano: the owners Jorge and Isolda are extremely nice and can help you with anything. The place is like a little palace compared to others in Vinales. The house is at the top of the road and from the large terrace, we had a great view of the Valley and the Mogotes....

Great shower, clean room, excellent service. They will help you book an array of services (bikes, horseback tour etc), we booked our own taxi collectivo to (beach) and Havana airport, but this is very straightforward in Vinales as everything is close by and if you can't speak Spanish the tourist information centre can speak very good English. Can't recommend the...
