This place is faultless & can't thank Francisco & Any enough for all the help they gave us when we were there. We ate every night at the casa & Any made sure that all my veggie meals were delish. I really loved the stuffed pancakes & Malanga fritters & so want the recipe. I also wanted to steal her... More

This was our first casa stay in Cuba and Any and Francisco could not have been more welcoming. The room was great and the breakfast was lovely. We ate one evening meal there which was also delicious. They both speak good english which was helpful as we were still finding our Cuban feet!!

after almost three dozen trips to cuba I can tell you I've seen it all. from over-the-top houses to not-so-nice, but functional. without a doubt, villa cristal is an amazing property, but the magic happens the moment you arrive, immediately, you are part of the family. anita and Francisco go well out of their way to be sure you have...

We visited Vinales Valley in Cuba for only 2 nights but it was a fantastic experience and not to be missed. We stayed with the family of Any and Francisco in Villa Cristal, together with Any's dear old dad, her Aunt and her daughter and their two lovely well behaved and adorable children, not forgetting their puppy Hunter. We were... More

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
