We visited when the father ("chef") of the house was away, but this did not matter at all and perhaps made it even better. The food was amazing ( lion fish, shrimps, soup) but not only that, the care and attention that mother and daughter paid to setting the table, providing us with lovely smoothies on arrival and making sure...

We spent 3 nights here in the beginning of June and had a great experience. Welcoming and helpful hosts, clean accommodation and awesome cooking. Really, the food made this place stand out amongst the other places we stayed at in Cuba. We can also highly recommend going snorkeling with son of the house. The only thing to look out for... More

The food here was the most delicious during our 16 day journey through Cuba. Ricardo worked as a chef for a hotel once. And you definitely notice that by the way he arranges and serves dinner. Though Playa Giron itself hasn't much to offer, but deserted landscape, the food here, as well as the snorkeling tour organized by Ricardos son,... More

Ricardo is a nice guy but before you eat or drink check the prices. We did not, and he took advantage of that. 7 cucs for 2 cups of coffee in the morning!!! " Welcome" drink also had a price. A little too greedy for my liking and the fact that the guest room sits in between their kitchen/dining room... More

Ricardo and family are incredible. Food was so good. The family takes such an interest in you. We were on a cycling trip and stayed 2 nights it was so good. Ricardo gives you great ideas (snorkelling at the Cuba beach instead of the tourist beach that costs)! Very friendly. Our bikes were no problem and easy to store and... More

Great hosts, big room and bathroom, but the food! So good, best we had in all our time in Cuba. The owner used to be the chef at the local hotel and his lobster, in particular, is to die for! We were only going to stay 2 nights, but stayed an extra because it was so nice.

First of all, we had our best breakfasts and dinners on our trip here in this casa. We probably had the best spaghetti and vegetable soup in our lives, no kidding! The rooms were clean and we had plenty of space, the beach is in walking distance. we had great mojitos prepared by "le chef du cuisine" himself, the whole... More

I stayed at KS Abella with a friend in April '13 during a cycling trip around western Cuba. We found Ricardo very welcoming, the room well appointed and, most importantly for two hungry cyclists, the food just incredible. Ricardo used to work in one of the hotels in the area and, having gone solo, now serves up feasts of spiced... More
