We spent 7 weeks traveling around Cuba mostly staying in casas. This one was comfortable but not exceptional. Norka spoke good English and provided us with a lovely breakfast. The location was pretty good being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but within walking distance. It would have been nice to have our own... More

Thank you so much Norka, we had such a wonderful time staying with you! Norka has the most beautiful house, and she cooked us a wonderful meal, which was so delicious. She's really helpful and made us feel welcome and at home in Santiago de Cuba! Really recommend staying here.

We stayed 2 nights at Casa Azul, as the first stop in our first-ever Cuban trip and as a family trip (with 2 teenage daughters and their grandmother). What a wonderful way to start our holiday! Norka's hospitality was amazing. As we were celebrating our grand-mother's 80th birthday, Norka had bought some flowers for her room as well as baked... More

Norka is an amazing host and cook. She is doing her best to provide a comfortable staying and can help you with arrangement of your trip if you want to. Do not forget to ask her for daiquiri after dinner which was the best we had in Cuba. We spent nice time in her beautiful casa.

I stayed here for 2 nights in February 2015 and it was wonderful. Norka is very friendly and helpful but also gives you a good balance of independence if you just want to do your own thing. On my last day in Santiago my bus didn't leave until late that night, and she let me keep my things there all... More

The meals are plentiful , delicious and served with style. You dine in an open courtyard surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers. The entire Casa is... More

This is, by far, one of the best places I've stayed in and I really recommend if you are coming to Santiago to stay at Casa Azul. Norka, Paco, Isabel and Luisa were so kind and hospitable towards me and I felt so comfortable in the house because they were so welcoming. I was interested in cultural sights and places... More
