2020 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Villa Paradiso opens its doors to travellers looking for a wonderful vacation in the Baracoa region, staying at a cozy & welcoming home on a little hill kissed by the sea breeze and with an amazing view of the Miel Bay ("Honey Bay", the bay in Baracoa where the Miel/Honey river meets the sea). The house is only 6 blocks from Baracoa's vibrant downtown - yet up on the hill there's a relaxed countryside vibe. We have three bedrooms (different sizes & capacity 2 to 4 people) with private bathroom, air conditioning & fan, direct access to a terrace or balcony and to the rocks & plants garden (including 15 varieties of ferns from the region), all of it with a view of town and the sea that many locals consider to be among the best in Baracoa - take a look at the pictures! Your main host, Manuel de Jesús, is a former professor at Universidad de Oriente's Agricultural Sciences Department, where he lead the evaluation of education quality. His life partner, Roberto, works in the field of social justice and divides his time between Canada and Cuba. Both will be delighted to welcome you, offer you information about the region and suggestions/recommendations so you can make the most of your stay, whether you like Cuban cultural life, unblemished natural parks, beaches, rivers, hiking, cycling - or a mix of all them! We also offer breakfast and dinner upon request - traditional and creative Baracoan & Eastern Cuban cuisine, with options both for those who eat meat/seafood and those who are vegetarian or vegan. Tell us what you'd like! We welcome LGBTQI travellers! Please note: we have a small Havanese dog and a cat. We look forward to seeing you in Baracoa soon!

Villa Paradiso offers the kind of curated local Cuban experience that travellers search for. Our host Roberto is a bird watcher, speaks English, Spanish and French fluently, and is appreciative and deeply respectful of Cubans. Manuel, his partner, is a Cuban agricultural specialist, who renovated their casa beautifully and is a really lovely person. Gladys keeps the house organized, warms up everything with her beautiful smile and her gardening skills, and she is learning English and French. The house is on a hill overlooking the town with spectacular sea views, breezy and open plan. The guest rooms are on the second floor, with views, and french doors, fans and curtains so you never feel shut in, but you can always enjoy your privacy. Each bedroom hs its own bathroom. There is a shared terrace with a beautiful view. Breakfast is fresh fruit, Manuel's special fruit smoothy, bread, butter, cheese, ham and jam, with coffee or tea. The internet works just fine. But the even bigger plus is that Roberto will help you work out your travel itinerary with restaurant suggestions, hikes, beaches, cacao, bee and organic farms to visit, and even bird watching excursions. The price of the rooms is very, very good value for money. Baracoa also offers great music and dancing at the Casa de Trova. Baracoa has many beaches, mountains, waterfalls and rivers to explore. We have visited most of Cuba and we recommend Baracoa. We have met so many lovely people here, we are planning to make it part of our annual retirement plan.

A true gem! Villa Paradiso is as beautiful (or even more beautiful than) in the pictures. The rooms are cozy and spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. The villa is a little bit uphill, so you have amazing sea views from your room and the shared terrace. On the terrace you find comfy lounge chairs to relax, and breakfast is served here. Breakfast is delicious, with fresh fruit juice, fresh fruit, bread, cheese, eggs, local honey and homemade jam. Together with the sea views, a perfect start of the day! To make it even better, we could see the sunrise from our bed. An unforgettable experience. The hosts Roberto and Manuel are super friendly and welcoming, and made us feel at home. Roberto was always ready to help us with useful tips for day trips and restaurants and really helped us make the very best of our stay in Baracoa. Their housekeeper Glance is the most lovely person, always helpful and kind and smiling. I couldn't think of any ways how they could have provided us with a better experience. We could only stay for four days, because they were booked out. We really would have loved to stay longer here. If I return to Cuba I will definitely come back to Villa Paradiso. Even stronger, I would consider returning to Cuba just so I could stay again at Villa Paradiso. :)

Let’s start with this - I am very rarely writing reviews for places I have visited. Villa Paradiso, however, deserves to be one of the very few exceptions. What a great place this is, I imagine that staying anywhere else in Baracoa would have been a total miss. We stayed at the villa for 5 nights and the only thing I regret is that we hadn’t more time to spent there. The house is amazing, it gives you the opportunity to relax at such a cozy place just above Baracoa. Everything was clean and tidy, the location was perfect and a good starting point for many of the trips which you can do around Baracoa during your stay there. The view from the terrace to one of the Baracoa gulfs is amazing, you could spend all your day just staying there enjoying the view. What really makes this place different from all others are actually the people there – the hosts Roberto and Manuel. Always ready to help you, they gave us fantastic recommendations for places which to be visited around (waterfalls, beaches, mountains, etc.).The restaurants they recommended us were probably the best restaurants we have visited in Cuba. And we backpacked it for 20 days. In other words, there is no better name for this place than Villa Paradiso! We hope that someday we will return to this piece of Paradise.
