Hi, I really want to promote this Guest House. We had such a wonderful stay here together with my wife and my 19 year old son. We shared a room, it was very clean and had a well functioning AC and bathroom with a shower. The couple who run this place, Joaquin and Olga are very sympathetic and speak only... More

This was my absolute favorite Casa during my stay. Olga and Joaquin are gracious hosts. The accommodations are comfortable, private and clean. The Casa is located across the street from the small beach (rocky) and only 15 min from nearby Playa Ancon (via taxi, which Olga can arrange). The best part of our stay was Olga's cooking...DELICIOUS! Grilled lobster tail,... More

This is a great place to stay instead of Trinidad - you get away from all the hassle but can get into town easily and cheaply (3CUC). The hosts are lovely people who go out of their way to help you and the food Olga cooks is as good as any we tasted in Cuba. It is a popular place... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in mid Jan 13 and found it to be a great place to relax away from the busy tourist areas. La Boca sits between Trinidad and Ancon beach, 5 miles from each, a great base to explore both. The Casa has a relaxing porch and gardens with rocking chairs ideal for relaxing whilst admiring...

We stayed here in November and after a few days in Havana and it was heavenly. Calm and peaceful house by the seaside. We were greeted with smiles, warmth and great homemade mojitos! This casa was modest, but comfortable and meets all the needs you require. All meals amazing and dinner at the house was much tastier and more affordable... More

Sol Y Mar in La Boca (Trinidad) is an ok hostal. The rooms are a bit small though (nowhere to hang your clothes) and badly ventilated. We where there in december so it was a bit cold, but still, we had to let the room be ventilated before going to bed. But be a bit careful with the hosts, they... More

Sol y Mar was very disappointing part of our overall great time in Cuba. We booked the hostel 1 month beforehand through Hostelbookers.com and paid one night in advance. After booking we confirmed our arrival on several occasions. The reason for booking this place was because of the near-ocean location and general impression. One day before the trip from Havana...

Sol y Mar is a nice casa - our room was good with an enormous ensuite bathroom. The best part of the casa is the veranda with rocking chairs from where you can watch the sunset whilst nursing a cheap mojito from the beach bar across the road (definitely recommended - much cheaper than the Casa's drinks), The meals were...

Sol y Mar was another of our highlights for our trip to Cuba. It is a haven of peace and tranquility with delux meals (rarely heard of in cuba). To be honest all the reviews i read before booking are positive and i'm not sure i can add any more praise to aid your choice. If you want to escape... More
