Family run, husband and wife team, wife speaks very good English. Room was comfortable, very clean as was the en-suite. We were given a cold welcome drink on arrival which was needed after a long coach journey from Havana. There is a lovely large roof terrace with table and chairs to enjoy the view of the surrounding area. We also... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa El Balcon. The hosts were extremely nice, welcoming, and helpful, reflecting the best of cuban hospitality. They answered all our questions, gave us tips on sights, and set up our horseback riding excursion. A definite highlight was enjoying amazing dinners on their rooftop terrace while taking in the breathtaking views of Vinales.

We booked El Balcon in advance after reading a good review in Lonely Planet. We were very pleased! A lovely building with a great balcony and roof terrace with amazing views. The hosts were very welcoming and willing to help in any way they could, thank you for a great stay. You should stay here!

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming- however seemed a little run off their feet. You get the feeling that you are really living in someone elses house here, as opposed to other casa's where both the host and the guests have a little more privacy. The rooms were spotless, with A/C and comfortable beds. There was a rooftop terrace... More

This is the most comfortable casa that we have stayed during our 2 weeks trip in Cuba. The room was clean and cozy. We enjoyed chilling at the balcony after dinner. The food as reviewed by other travelers, was the most delicious food that we have had in Cuba. I loved the Mojito a lot too! The hosts were friendly... More

Mignelys and her husband showed great hospitality. When we arrived she served us a delicious mango juice and gave us a lot of good tips on what to do in Vinales. Mignelys seems to have a lot of knowledge about the area, and she speaks fluent english. She also cooked us the best food we had in Cuba! If you... More

Casa El Balcon is without question the best casa in all of Cuba. Mignaleys and Juanito are superb hosts. The casa is so clean you can literally eat off the floors. It's bright, spacious, welcoming, centrally located, pristine and beautifully decorated. Juanito makes the best mojitos in Cuba. I had the largest, most succulent shrimp for dinner and delightful breakfasts... More

The food was sublime, the best home cooked meal we had in Cuba. Centrally located and comfortable simple rooms. View from the roof terrace is excellent in the evenings. Highly recommended. We had the small room with a separate entrance on the balcony which was clean and fitted with a modern bathroom.

If we were able to use every single positive adjective in the English dictionary for this casa, we would write it in this review, but I think this would go on forever. From start to finish we felt right at home with this wonderful casa and the amazing family. Traveling in from Havana via the Viazul coach which takes about... More

My friend & I spent 2 wks travelling around Cuba staying in casas & this was one of the best ones we stayed at. There are 4 rooms & the whole place feels very new. The bathroom (ensuite) was excellent - hot water & a great shower (unlike most casas !). The casa is well located & not far from... More
