Going back next week as I always do. Mandy and the Staff here are like Family. He makes you feel at ease the moment you walk in the door. It was this way the first time we arrived as 3 sweaty cyclists in 2010. The renovations have been fantastic. The newest room upstairs is unlike any other. Has to be... More

Spent one night at Armando´s place after arriving at Varadero airport before moving on to La Habana. Only a 15min- drive away from airport, so within a quite convenient distance from airport after a 12h- flight from Europe. Armando immediately arranged safe parking of our rentalcar. Nice rooftop room with big terrace, good outdoor breakfast. All sights of Matanzas within... More

Once again, Mandy and his staff did everything right in making Villa Sonada feel like my home-away-from-home. I have stayed at this casa twice (will be returning again later this year) and both times, accommodations exceeded my expectations with respect to comfort and cleanliness. It's only a few blocks from the centre of town - only a few minutes walking... More

This was our third visit to Matanzas and we always stay with the delightful Armandito (Mandy). We are treated with such warm hospitality and feel like part of his local community and this truly makes La Villa Sonada our home in Mantazas. Located in a family filled neighbourhood, just a few blocks stroll to central Parque Libertad, it's the perfect... More

Armando is a great host, always making sure that I had everything I needed and giving advice on everything from how to get to Havana to how to avoid local scams. Dinner and breakfast were excellent and the room was quite comfortable, with air conditioning. I was able to both practice my Spanish as well as get vital information in... More

A good friend who brave about his "Cuban expertise" recommended me the Mandy's Villa Sonada at Matanzas. He was right, the place is clean, cosy, comfortable, and well ubicated. And what to say about Mandy and his people, let you feel at home from the time you arrive and accomodate to all the crazy ideas that people as me can... More

I stayed at this casa a few years back, it is nice to see that Mandy is still doing business. Our stay was wonderful, Mandy organized our little trip in the countryside, very helpful. Mandy's food was great. The upstair patio was delightful. Maybe one day i will go back.
