At the beginning of our trip we stayed with Daniel and his family. And we couldn't have made a better choice. We suddenly felt at home and Daniel helped us with everything we needed. He was always in a good mood. Besides he served the best Mojito in whole Cuba. Breakfast was great! This is mainly due to the fact... More

Daniel and his family couldn't have given us a better introduction to Cuba. He was extremely friendly and very helpful. One of the reasons we chose La Roca was because of previous reviews about his help arranging casas in other towns and he did not fail us for one town we hadn't sorted before leaving home. If I were to... More

Daniel is amazing, he is fluent in English and Spanish and I saw him talking German with another couple. He even spoke some French to my wife. Marcia and her Mother and Aunt were very friendly and awesome cooks. Oscar, our big yellow Taxi driver , drove us all around south part of Cuba and looked out for us. Daniel... More

Because we had never been to Cuba before we were nervous about staying in a Casa and the reviews of this one seemed almost too good to be true. I am happy to confirm they are not. Daniel and Marcia are wonderful, warm and welcoming hosts who are rarely 'off duty'. Marcia is a wonderful cook which is no mean... More

Having made 10 visits to Cuba over the last 15 years and travelled all over the island, I can honestly say that this is a great casa. It is about a 15 minute horse-drawn-taxi ride from the centre. The horse taxi rank is about 2 minutes from the casa; or 4/5 minutes by regular taxi. The hosts are very friendly.... More

We stayed with Daniel and Marcia at the beginning and the end of what was supposed to be our 2nd cycling trip in Cuba. Daniel not only planned the route for us and made all reservations but he remained available via cell phone for the duration of our trip and saved us along the way more than once. I said... More

We had had to make several changes to our arrival time at Villa La Roca due to a change in our bus reservation. Daniel, our host, was very flexible and we were warmly and exuberantly greeted when we arrived. Marcia, our hostess, and her friendly staff made us a delicious breakfast, which was very much appreciated after our overnight bus... More

Like the other Trip Advisor reviews, we found Villa La Roca a wonderful casa to spend two nights in March with our friends. Daniel and Marcia and their staff go out of thier way to ensure the comfort of their guests. They had a taxi waiting for us at the Viazul bus station and even though it was mid morning... More

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
