La Villa Sonada was by far the best Casa we stayed in during our two weeks in Cuba. Mandy is a wonderful host and has created spacious and nicely decorated rooms with excellent beds. The breakfast and dinners were also some of the best that we had in Cuba, and they are served on the scenic rooftop terrace. Mandy speaks... More

I loved everything about this Casa! I was in Cuba for 15 days ... 2 nights in Matanzas, 2 nights in Havana, 1 night in Vinales, another 2 in Havana and the plan was to move on to Cienfuegos and Trinidad. But I headed back to Villa Sonada in Matanzas because that's where I felt most comfortable and where I... More

During our trip around Cuba we stayed 2 nights at La Villa Sonada with Mandy who was a wonderful host. The room was easily the best room we stayed in in Cuba, large spacious room with excellent quality furniture and extremely comfortable beds. Breakfasts and evening meals were served to us on the roof top terrace. Breakfasts were fresh fruit,... More

We stayed with Mandy for the first three nights of our three weeks in Cuba and thoroughly enjoyed everything. He was most helpful in the way he set up for us places to stay in other cities. Thank-you Mandy!

My trip to Cuba in February was a last minute plan - and when I emailed Armando of my plans he was very concerned about my visit because I came at his very busy time - I was not concerned at all because I knew things would work out and they did 110%. I stayed at La Villa most of... More

Most casa-type tourists in Cuba, unless they are planning on taking the Hershey train from Havana,avoid the city of Matanzas because it is an ordinary, bustling city which is the very reason it appealed to us. My wife and I, both in our early 70's, stayed in Matanzas at La Villa Sonada from January 30 to February 4, 2014.Mandy made... More

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Sonada in February 2014. We picked this casa because of all the great reviews and we are very happy we did. Our stay at the casa was wonderful and Mandy could not have been more helpful. We had a room on the second floor which was nicely decorated and very spacious. Our... More

We returned to Villa Sonada twice-mid Jan. and again mid-Feb. The welcome was so warm and genuine. Mandy and staff continue to offer wonderful hospitality, meals and sound advice about further travels and accommodations in Cuba. Mandy goes far beyond the norm in all ways. One is always at ease in this comfortable home. We stayed in the main floor... More
