Visited here over Christmas vacation. Mandy, the owner, was so accommodating to all of us. The rooms were spacious and clean. Meals were prepared then served outside on the patio each and every morning. He even suggested we hire a local, internationally acclaimed musical group to come give us a private show, which was great. Thank you Mandy!!!

For the price, the lodging was fantastic. We had the room on top of the roof which was clean and had a great shower, ac and tv. Mandy's food was superb and was the best food I have ever had in a casa particulare. Great value and great host!

We've stayed at the La Villa Sonada on several occasions over the years. And, as always Mandy has always opened his home to us and has made us feel more than welcome. Over the the years we have seen this casa expand, and it has never disappointed us. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The terrace offers a...

Our last stop in Cuba was Matanzas and Villa Sonada. Its modern, clean home. We were really happy to use as well airport transfer. Matanzas is not really touristic city, but host gave us tips, how to spend our last days in Cuba. And the FOOD - best breakfest and dinner, what we have eaten in Cuba. Dont miss it!...

Large room, Great bed (not that usual in casa particular). The food served on beautiful terrace comes in beautiful china. The lobster dinner was not only delicious but had humongous portions.The service was friendly but above all efficient. Oh! lets not forget the Cuba libre were the best I had on the island. Look no further and definitely have your...

The only place to start here is with the food. We had dinner on the terrace both nights we were in Matanzas and they were probably the two best meals we had in ten days in Cuba. If you're staying here, make sure you stay in to eat at least once. Our room was massive and stylishly decorated. Our only...

When coming from Havana we knew that there is no free room in Villa Sonada. But as normal practice in Cuba, house owner will arrange us another similar house. So we went to Hostal Rey (see rewiev) for two nights and to third house for one night. This arrangement was totally ok for us because all these houses were good...

I visited La Villa Sonada in April. It is placed in Matanzas. If you are not sure how to get there, please turn near the theatre Sauto and search for Parque de la Libertad. If you ask any local for "Santa Teresa Calle" and then for La Villa Sonada or Mandy Casa Particular, people should show you direction - if...

Landed late evening in Varadero, got picked up by pre-arranged Lada taxi. Roly the driver is Armando's go-to guy for help in and around the casa. The service at the casa is great, no matter what you ask for, Armando will help you out. The downstairs room has seen better days, could use a coat of paint, but the bed...

My partner and I spent the first two nights of our Cuban holiday at La Villa Sonada. The town of Matanzas has many hidden delights (music university, art galleries, museums, etc) and we thoroughly enjoyed spending a full day exploring the town. I worked in the tourism/accommodation industry for many years and can say that we were treated with nothing...
