I have stayed at the Villa Sonada in Matanzas on several occasions while in the area. It is quite simply the BEST house I stay in in Cuba period. The quality of the service and attention is what sets this casa apart. From the spacious and comfortable rooms and the veritable feasts that are layer out for breakfast and dinner,... More

Firstly Armando is very professional and has a charming and inviting spirit despite the language barrier he made us feel like we were in our own home.... More

La Villa Sonada is a charming and clean casa in a quiet side street of the beautiful colonian town of Matanzas. House keeper Armando is very helpful and will give you all the information about Cuba, Matanzas and casas in other places. The rooms are spacious and the food is really delicious. Don't hesitate to ask Armando for an evening... More

Our stay at Mandy's place was great. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was the best in Cuba, with different kinds of toiletries. Our room opened to the terrace, so it was like we had our own big terrace. We spent most of our time there.Had dinner and breakfast there as well. All were fantastic! A big assortment... More

We headed to Matanzas for our first night in Cuba after arriving at Veradero. The house is a typical Cuban one. There are two rooms downstairs and one upstairs. Pick the one upstairs. Our room in the back downstairs was dark, large but only one window (to the stair well). It had a fan and air con, fridge and sink... More

Villa Soñada in Matanzas is one of the best places we stayed in Cuba, and Mandy, the host made our stay in Matanzas perfect. Breakfast and dinner were quite especial and bountiful. As a perfect host, Mandy suggested several of the places and cities that we visited and his recommendations of the "Casas Particulares" helped us a lot since he... More

I stayed one night at Villa Soñada, a very charming place, beautiful atmosphere, clean and comfortable room and a wonderful host “Mandy”, who treats his guests like family and old friends. The house has a nice terrace where I enjoyed a delicious breakfast and an excellent dinner. Mandy was very helpful getting accommodations in the other places I visited. It... More

My dad and I could not have been happier about our choice to spend our two nights in Matanzas at Villa Soñada. We arranged to be picked up at the airport, and Mandy's team was there waiting for us when we got in, despite our having given them the wrong landing time! He welcomed us with cold beers and a...

We stayed at La Villa Sonada for 2 nights. Mandy (Armando) organised his taxi driver to pick us up from the local airport - everything was very easy. Our room was really nice (large, clean, good beds, good ensuite bathroom) with a lovely terrace alongside where we ate really good breakfast that just never stopped. Dinner was great - "Ropa...
