My stay to Casa Novoa in Casilda was from Feb 10th to March 10th, 2017. I must say that the Novoa family is one of the most generous, helpful and with the greatest hospitality from all the Casa particular I have ever been to in Cuba. Georling and Yoa both speaks very well English and are very friendly, humorous and...

My husband and I booked 2 nights at Casa Novoa in Early March. My only regret is not staying with this lovely family longer. We decided to stay an extra night and the family was kind enough to set us up at another wonderful place just across the street because, of course they were booked up. Georling and his wife...

Such a great alternative to the impersonal Ancon hotels. A third the price, wonderful family with fluent English skills (not the norm in many Cases) and with knowledge of the most incredible private beach! Our host, Georling took us snorkeling as part of our overnight stay. A short 3 minute taxi ride out of Caslida, and we turned off the...

Yoanis and Georling were definitely the best hosts we had on our 2 week trip to Cuba. Our stay there was everything I had hoped for and more.

Casa Novoa was the best place we stayed at in Cuba. The family helped us arrange transportation from Havana and helped us set up all our tours around Trinidad. They showed us the best snorkeling area and loaned us snorkeling gear. They arranged trips to Trinidad, to coffee plantations, and to see the waterfalls. The breakfasts and dinners were wonderful....

My bus to Trinidad arrived quite early at 7am and it was definitely not a problem to check in early, shower and freshen up, and even eat and drink. I felt relaxed right away.
