We visited several casa particulares in different towns in Cuba. This casa was the one we appreciated most! It was´not the most exclusive but senora Mercedes and her son made our stay great. Her cooking is the best in Cuba! Calm and peaceful location. Free coffe and juice.

We stayed in the casa particular for 1 week and found it absolutely lovely. It is an exciting experience to Michael (the son) is a very entrepreneurial spirited guy that has a lot of recommendations, is well connected to all the People and was very helpful as a "travel agency" for all our activities.

Best stay of our holiday. Watched the world passing the road while sitting on the terrace with the best mojito made by Mercedes. The food Mercedes prepares is so delicious after all the dinners in the state owned restaurants. The best place to relax!!

On first impressions I thought we were going to have a difficult time here as Mercedes does not speak English. However, her son Michael works in a local hotel and has excellent English and so can help with any needs or questions you might have. They have an excellent range of activities you can book through them. Despite the language... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mercedes' for three nights between 14-17th July and this was by far and away the best casa of our entire time in Cuba! Mercedes and her family are so welcoming, nothing is too much to ask. The casa is an easy five minute walk to the main square (Vinales is very small) where all... More

Casa Colonial Mercedes was one of our best experiences in Cuba. So much hospitality and kindness. Mercedes was always consideret and caring for our needs. When we returned to the casa after being on tour all day, Mercedes offered fresh fruits or juice "on the house". And we really enjoyed her cooking - and coffee! Every thing war nice and... More

Spending a few days in Casa Mercedes was probably the sweetest part of our trip in Cuba. You will be the only guests, with a super-clean nice room with 2 beds, a private bathroom and a sort of private living-room with a nice exterior space and 2 lovely rocking chairs. Everything is located in the heart of Vinales. It's really... More

I can't recommend this casa particular highly enough; it was, without doubt, the best out of the six casas we stayed in during our two weeks in Cuba. Mercedes and her son Mikael are fabulous hosts, and nothing is too much trouble for them to provide. Mercedes cooked the best food we ate in Cuba; we tried every option she... More

The host Mercedes and her son Mikael are truly nice and generous people. Having said this I am truly sorry not to recommend the casa. The casa is located at a corner which also is a corner heavy traffic is diverted to pass. This there is a flow of heavy trucks and tractors, all breaking and accelerating Cuban style, just... More
