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...

We stayed at La Villa Sonada in November 2014 on the first day of a week cycling trip. We booked early and were lucky to get the upstairs room. Mandy and the staff were great. The room was lovely and have I mentioned how nice the bed sheets were, just like home. We hope to stay there again and catch... More

We stayed one night at this casa and it was all perfect. Very nice owner who was a perfect host. Nice and comfortable room, great food and a nice terrace with a perfect view over Matanzas. The Pina Colada made by Armando was very delicious. Check it out! Greetings, Fanny y Robert

This was my second stay at the Villa Sonada and Mandy and his team made it happen again. It is true Cuban hospitality. They made my stay unforgettable. I always looked forward to my dinner on his lush rooftop patio. The food was outstanding and the relaxed atmosphere puts you in a real vacation mood. Mandy is very helpful with... More

Villa Soñada is an up-and-coming great place to stay in Matanzas. Mandy is an amazing host; friendly but discreet, helpful but not in your face. We spent 2 nights at his casa and he made them pleasant and comfortable. He was always ready to add that additional detail to make our stay better. This is your place in Matanzas

We stayed at La Villa Soñada at the beginning and at the end of a 1 month bicycle tour of Cuba, with most accommodations being Casas. La Villa Soñada was certainly the best we stayed in. From the beginning when we were making our plans, Mandy was very helpful. While we were there, Mandy helped and explained so much to... More

What a treat to spend the first 3 nights of our Cuba trip at La Villa Sonada in Matanzas- if you want a glimpse of everyday life in Cuba, a far cry from the sanitized resorts like Varadero, it doesn't get better than La Villa Sonada in Matanzas - Mandy is the ultimate host; arranging transport from the Airport for...

It is always delight to stay at Mandy's casa La Villa Sonada. This last week was our fourth stay and Mandy is a wonderful host who makes every effort to help make our visits to Cuba memorable. He offers suggestions to stay at other casas and arranges trips to events and tours around Matanzas. Our arrival to Cuba is always... More
