As the title says words cannot describe the great fullness that I have towards Daniel & Marcia & family. I have been to Cuba approx about 8 times in the past. This is my first time going and not doing the resort thing and I was a little nervous about it. Well as it turns out I had the best... More

We landed at Holguin Airport and a taxi was there to take us to Hostal La Roca. Daniel and Marcia greeted us warmly and we immediately became part of an extended family where we had an excellent room and wonderful meals. We had told Daniel of our plans to travel in the eastern part of Cuba and he looked after... More

Daniel and Marcia gave me a warm welcome to their lovely clean home and cooked delicious food. I arrived in Cuba with a backpack and a few vague ideas. Daniel gave me advice on good places to visit, a list of contacts at other great casas around the country and set me up for a brilliant holiday. It's not in... More

A huge welcome will await you at Villa La Roca. Daniel and Marcia are fab hosts! Efficient and clear correspondence via email, my dates were confirmed and a taxi pickup service at the airport arranged. Perfect and seemless transition from airport to his house occurred- perfect after a long flight. Hot showers, comfy beds, fridge, tv and money safe box.... More

I stayed 10 days in this excellent Casa in Februari 2014 so when I returned in 2015 with my wife, it was quite natural to book 4 days with Daniel and Marcia again. And we are very satisfied with everything; the rooms, the food, the kind reception, the service Daniel will give you to planning stays in other places in... More

My spouse and I stayed with Daniel and Marcia for a few days and what a wonderful experience. It started with him arranging for a driver to pick us up at the Holguin airport (a big sign "Stephen + Terry) then recommending several excellent restaurants to select from for dinner that evening. The next day, Daniel was so nice to... More

This was my first experience staying at a Casa & Villa La Roca is rated #1 for a reason! The accommodations are very clean, quiet & the food is very good. You have to remember this is Cuba, & some commodities can be difficult to obtain @ times. And as everyone says, the real strength of this casa is the... More

The room was clean with a comfy bed , the food excellent and the shower could wash shampoo out of your hair in less than... More

Daniel was really helpful all the time and the food was excellent. You can manage to go to the centre by horse taxi for less than a dollar and in less than 5 min. Room was very tidy and clean and bed very comfortable. We recommend this casa if you are staying in Holguin.

La Roca is clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. However, what makes it special is the personality of its hosts. Daniel and Marcia share their knowledge, contacts, enthusiasms and, most importantly, they share of themselves. This makes any stay there a marvelous experience. Also, they had a driver meet us at the airport and later take us to... More
