Simply the best casa we had during our three weeks trip in Cuba. In short, the place is clean, comfy, close to the center yet quiet. Moreover, the owner is extremely diligent and a skilled cook too. I highly recommend !

Casa El Balcon was comfortable, clean and well located. The owners, Juan and Mignelys, were wonderful hosts and great cooks! They also scheduled a great excursion for us, touring tobacco and coffee farms in the nearby valley on horseback.

We stayed in this Casa with 12 people. This was our best casa in our trip in Cuba. The lobster was great, but that was only one thing. Everything was great. The owners are lovely people, the rooms are very clean.

this is a wonderful casa, the owners are lovely people, the rooms are very clean and the food excellent, it is very well placed close to the center of town but on a side street so a bit quieter,you can sit on the balcony and watch the world go by. Vinales is definitely worth visiting for a few days, get... More

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
