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...

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
