My friend recommended the casa to me after her stay here. However I didn't get the chance to stay at the lovely and cozy casa as it was fully booked. The owner, Luis had however offered me breakfast and dinner at his Casa and arranged another accommodation very close to his Casa for me. Luis was very helpful.
The Casa is very close to the water front promenade (app. 2 mins) and it's a walk-able distance to the some of the major attractions. The interior of the Casa is very well kept with gorgeous dining room and a nice and airy patio. The decor together with the antique furniture and warm lighting bring a delightful ambiance. Luis likes to play very nice and soft music which is perfect for the environment. I had a look at the rooms. They look clean and nice. It was such a pity that I wasn't able to stay there.
My dinner at the Casa was unforgettable. I joined the German couple staying at the Casa for a sophisticated dinner which was elegantly served by very welcoming staff there. The meal at the Casa was the best compared to all other meals I had in the other 5 casa particulares that I stayed in Cuba. It's better than many restaurants outside.
Luis, his brother, the cook at night and the lady cook in the morning where all very friendly. They provide much better services then those of the hotels who keep expecting you to give them tips. I really would like to extend my gratitude to the all the staff there. I had a wonderful time at the Casa.
I have promised Luis to write the review in my own language. Below is the Chinese translation.
我在這兒的晚餐令人難忘。我和一對在這住的德國夫婦一同吃了一頓有格調和美味的晚餐。這兒的員工都非常友善。這兒的餐比我在其他5 家CASA particulares的都好，比很多外面的餐館都好。
