We actually didn't stay at Casa Leonel et Amarilis as it was fully booked. Nevertheless Leonel himself took care of a good accomodation for us at Olguitas Casa near to their house. Allthough we weren't his direct client, he gave us excellent informations and advices for local activites and he even booked everything for us. As our journey just started... More

After a hectic start to our trip in Havana, it was bliss to arrive at Leonel and amarylis's home and receive such a warm welcome and great Cuban hospitality. The food was great and the bean soup a particular favourite, not to mention Leonels's mohitos. Vinales itself was also a great place to chill out and we spent a great... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was really awesome. Leonel y Amarilys are, first and foremost, the friendliest, most welcoming people you will meet. They have two teenage or slightly older sons who are also really friendly. My Spanish is very limited, but Leonel spoke so clearly and slowly that even I could understand a lot of what... More

We totally loved this casa! The food is great! The family is open and welcoming, not just Leonel and Amarilis but also there sons (even if my Spanish is non-existing…) the location is a couple of blocks from the main street so you don’t hear the motorcycles or other traffic at all (but the roosters are naturally everywhere in Vinales)....

Leonel and Amarilis are beautiful people. They made us feel welcome and cooked the most beautiful food for us! They can organise your horse riding tour for you at a cheap price (I definitely recommend doing one!). Also, the rooms are really nice and clean and the place has a really cool balcony! If the casa is full when you... More

We spent three nights with Leonal and Amarilys and were made feel like part of the family. We had so much fun with them. They arranged horse riding, car hire and helped arranged our casa in Trinidad for us. The casa is charming and the rooms are lovely and clean. The food is amazing, so we ate here every night....

I stayed here for 3 nights when I arrived in Cuba and I have never felt so welcomed as I did here. Leonel and Amarilis were so hospitable and helpful and it felt like I was part of their family. The rooms were beautiful and clean and a mojito on the terrace at the end of the day was divine!... More

We spend 2 nights at Leonel's place. the rooms are nice and clean. Enjoyed fantastic breakfast and free coffee and tea all day. it's only a 3min walk from the city center. If you are in town and look for a cozy place to stay- this is the place to be! Stefan y Jasmin

We spent 10 days in Cuba in April 2014 and stayed with Leonel & Amarilis for 3 nights. The casa is in a quiet street with wonderful views from the terrace that is private to the two letting rooms. Our hosts could not have been more hospitable. Leonel gave us lots of useful advice about the locality and also arranged... More
