While we stayed at Zuleyda's we barely saw the owners, so it does feel more like an hostal than a casa. However the staff is extremely efficient, and the casa is run like you would expect a small inn to be run at home. The room & bathroom were sparkling clean, bed comfortable, all quiet. There is a in room... More

Our worst experience in Cuba. Arriving as planned after New Year's in Trinidad, we were told that no room is available. We showed them the confirmation (email) and also saw we are listed in the arrival book. After a while we were told that we called earlier and cancelled... an obvious lie that I find unacceptable. No help was offered... More

My husband, 19 year old son and I stayed here with a Witness for Peace delegation. We had the back room with a bathroom en suite. Our bathroom was adjacent to the public bathroom. The room had 2 single beds and a double. There was a refrigerator and air conditioner in the room. The a/c has only an on/off switch.... More

Loved this pace as the beach is really quiet and not very developed. I liked the Casa as it was one of the few that seemed to really understand what people touring around Cuba want. It had a good bathroom, air conditioning, great beds and had a mini-bar in rooms stocking lager, soft drinks and beer. Downside was our room... More

This is a family run friendly Casa but by uk standards more of a guesthouse with 4 bedrooms, (Cuban refer to these as hostels) . There were some small renovations going on during our visit but otherwise an ideal place to stay for visiting Zapata and the beach. Evening meal was good

This Casa was a little gem. Literally on the beach with good rooms with a/c and en-suite. Evening meal was good, bar available in house. Breakfast was also good. Gateway on to beach and the sea Only thing missing was a Bounty Bar!!! As with all places we stayed in Cuba it was tricky to find. Signage generally very poor.... More

This casa is located directly on the beach and is nice and clean. Room is big and clean with all the comforts. This casa is slightly more commercial than typical casa, since on the tarrace which belongs to casa, there is beach bar and restaurant which can be accessed also by people not leaving in the casa. Nevertheless hosts are... More

Located right in the side of the beach, it was a paradise for us, We really enjoyed everything here, since mojitos to the romantic rooms. Dinner was also awesome. The hosts were very kind to us since Vinola had worked a long time in Cienaga de Zapata and he gave us a couple of appreciated advices. Very recommended.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Playa Larga! The terrace is on the beach, you step out on to the sand from it. There are some palms to offer shade and the beach is good for swimming. Zuleyda and Vinola are excellent hosts, Vinola also arranges fishing tours in that area. If Vinola is not around you need... More

Casa Zuleyda has probably the best location of all the B&Bs in Playa Larga - directly on the beach. The place is quiet, very clean and has a very good restaurant. From the road it first looks a bit strange, but once one enters, the place feels relaxed and cosy. We really enjoyed the last days of our holiday in... More
