Mignelys and Juan are very friendly and helped us to organize our trips (walking tour and horse ride). Mignelys speaks English very well, which helped us a lot as our Spanish is not very good. The rooms are new and clean, we enjoyed the rooftop terrace and the balcony and breakfast was very tasty es well. We enjoyed our stay... More

When juan picked me up at the viazul station, he was super helpful and kind. The place is impeccable, spotless, and the food is great. It comes with a beautiful terrace upstairs as well. Highly recommended. Would visit again.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and made our stay in Vinales very enjoyable. The casa itself was very comfortable and the location was perfect - one block off the main square. The owners helped arrange a horseback ride which I highly recommend!

We stayed here for several days and had an excellent time. Mignelys is efficiently friendly and helpful, booking excursions for us and giving us advice. The fruit and eggs breakfast is a great start to the day and dinner is good too. The place is modern and spotlessly clean. It might not fit the bill for you if you're looking... More

We stayed at El Balcon for 3 nights in October. Our English speaking host Mignelys and her husband Juanito were lovely and provided us each day with a HUGE breakfast, Mojitos on the rooftop terrace and a 3 course dinner including soup, fish/lamb/chicken and dessert. Mignelys was very helpful in organising a guided walk and suggesting other outings. We were... More

Hands down recommend it to anyone. Exceptional rooftop with an excellent view. Excellent rooms to accommodate all needs, there's even one with 3 beds in it. Very reasonable prices. Good yet not cheap breakfast. Very nice owners. And you can even catch a local wifi from the rooftop (you have to purchase a card at a local phone shop though).

Mignelys and Juanito were fabulous hosts. We really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner they offered especially on the rooftop terrace. Juanito's Mojito is one of the best in Cuba. Even though we had one rather small room our stay at the modern and well equipped house was great. Vinales absolutely is our favourite location on Cuba.

Wonderfully welcoming family with rooms that are spacious, homely and clean. If you are keen to sample real Cuba food, dinner in this casa is a must. Plenty of communal areas to relax in and soak up the Viñales vibe. Take the owners up on their suggestion of horse riding through the back county - an experience not to be... More

Modern, clean, well-kept, fresh, full of light... Find more adjectives is a hard task: this is definitely the best place in Viñales because it's one of the few houses with rooms for rent on the first floor, which is an important issue, because there is fresh air that cools down the room temperature without running the AC equipment. The owners... More
