Any and Francisco are the most friendly hosts in Viñales, we could not ask for a better family, they were very accommodating, the room was very clean, breakfast was delicious, food on request was also very tasty and reasonably priced. Any works at Infotour so it is very handy because she can recommend trips and tours to do in Viñales,... More

Awesome people, and great service! the room was excellent and the food delicious! The entertainment in the city is great and the out door activities and landmarks add to the unforgettable experience. I would recommend Vinales and specially Villa Cristal to any one. I had the greatest experience of my life during my stay there.

After a nervracking week in varadero, where cubans were constantly trying to sell us cigars, trips, etc., we finally reached at Franciscos house! For the first time on our holiday we had the feeling that nobody wants to sell us anything. The owner is very decent and helped us in every situation. Twice we had to go to the hospital... More

My first time in Vinales (and Cuba) and by the grace of God I was encouraged to come to Villa Cristal. When you meet individuals so in love with their work and their product that the experience better's your appreciation of humanity, you know you have landed in the right place. While traveling in Cuba is not too hard neither... More

All round this casa is probably one of the best you will find. Any and Francisco's hospitality was outstanding. The welcome into their home and to see their friends and family part of the home is brilliant. The casa has everything including a safe, a power shower, comfy beds, umbrella, your room is separate from the house with privacy and... More

A wonderful oasis in a very nice area indeed. Guests have their own little 'casita', with a lovely tiled bathroom/great shower. There's even a TV set with a repetoire of films (yes, there can be rainy evenings in Vinales). Great views from the terrace on top, a covered outside eating/relaxing area, and even a very small pool! Wonderful people (host... More

This place came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. The family who owns the place was away on vacation, but a friendly local lady took over the role of host, with a helping hand from the neighbors. Love the attention to little details, such as a safe for valuables and earplugs (presumably as a defense against the ubiquitous local... More

Sourced by Cuba Direct for my boyfriend and I, this proved to be the best part of our recent 3-centre Cuba experience. The guest accommodation is charming. You feel part of family and village life, but the separate building (fully self-contained) that we occupied also offered comfort and privacy. We even had our own sun deck on the roof! Lovely...
