This was by far the best 'casa particular' I've been to in Cuba (and I've been to several ;)) Marelis will help you with anything you need! If you're hungry she'll prepare you a feast, if you're looking for a place to stay in another city she will make sure someone's waiting at the bus station there, if you're looking... More

We highly recommend this casa. Marelis is very warm and welcoming and made us great food and snacks. She helped us arrange excursions and her son even gave us a personal tour around Trinidad. The room is very clean and spacious, with great air conditioning. The house has a beautiful terrace that overlooks the city. The breakfast and dinner were... More

Trinidad was the first place me and my boyfriend visited on our travels round Cuba and Marelis couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome! What an amazing lady! The room was spacious and comfortable and the house is in a great location. The food was delicious (especially the fish) and we never went hungry! Marelis made sure we... More

We have firstly decided to stay at Marelis by hearing her fame about cooking. And her reputation was completely right; for 5 nights we have not eaten anything at other than our casa. Especially the lobster was a mythical experience :) Nevertheless, this was not all. Marelis created a very clean and calm atmosphere for her guests. Offer fresh fruits... More

If you will stay in Trinidad, there is no better option than Marelis, she is a very good host and a great cook. Rooms are quiet spacious and clean. Marelis is always there when you need something (or even when you don't, she brings tropical juices etc.). Other family members are also very nice and helpful. And again food is... More

Casa Marelis is amazing! It's the perfect place to stay in Trinidad. It's close to the historical center of the city, it's clean and the food is delicious. Marelis is so incredibly helpful and always spoiled us and gave us pinapple juice after a long day at the beach. She has so many excellent recommendations for where to go and... More

We came to stay three nights and ended staying five nights of our 3 week cuba trip. Marely is really helpful and warm harted. She helped us a lot without being pushy, was interesting to talk to and provided us with free fresh orange juice many times. We ate each day in casa, since Marely's cooking is really great and...

We stayed a couple of days at Marelis', while visiting Trinidad and surrounding places (like Topes de Collantes). Hostal Marelis is exceptionally clean and tidy, food is also great (they prepared delicious vegetarian food for us). During our stay, we much enjoyed chatting with her about interesting topics related to cuban culture, politics, economics, and alike. She was always very... More
