I enjoyed my experience in this casa particular. The breakfasts and dinners were good (especially for Cuban standards), the place is well located, the bedroom was cosy, the bathroom was big and clean, and the garden / terrace is very pleasant after a long day under the sun. Since my Spanish is very limited, I was unfortunately unable to chat... More

Some of the best food we have tasted in Cuba was served at this casa. Muñi (our hostess) provided a great selection of dinner meals and breakfast to a time of our choosing. Much like other casas in Cuba, Muñi works together with her daughter Lauren to provide for her guests. There are many things to do around the village... More

On our arrival, we were given a rude welcome by the hostess (who believed that we had not confirmed our booking). We were asked if we would like dinner at the casa & when we declined, we were told by Muni that we would get sick from the food in town and it was best if we stuck to food... More

Overall this was our favourite casa during our whole trip round Cuba, the room was big and clean with big en-suite bathroom. There was a fridge with drinks in it which was handy to just take a beer or water whenever we felt like it, the prices were about the same as in shops and bars so we did get... More

Good place to stay. (+) Location is good (+) service was decent and Muñi made a great effort to teach us about her Tabaco growing process. (+) Food was ok for Cuban standards, (+) private parking (-) We chose the room with 2 doors and independent access to the house. It was great that it offered a fridge for drinks... More

For a place to just stay in Cuba, Villa El Isleno is it. Munyi is a great host and a fabulous cook. We stayed three nights but were wishing for more. Her Villa is located on the edge of Vinales with her tobacco fields just behind the yard which is like a small Eden. Much of our food was definitely... More

The third room is in front of the house were the owner lives. This room is not so great. The bed is very hard, there is... More

I loved this place! After the hustle and bustle of Havana, it was just what I needed. Muñy picked me up at the bus stop because I had reserved. Her food is one of the best I've had in Cuba. The hammock, the view, the greenery were great. The room was big, great shower after a long trek in viñales.... More

This casa is at the very end of Vinales, but still in walking distance to the centre of this small town. The rooms are big and each with its own terrace, surrounded by a big, green garden. Breakfast and dinner are excellent. The only annoying part were the chicken running around and the barking dogs - but that is all... More

Great location as on the outskirt of town, perfect if you have a car as there is space to park it overnight. Stunning views sitting out and enjoying the view from just outside your room. Very quiet sleep in a good sized room. .
