Idael and Dania were our favourite hosts in Cuba, they are incredibly welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We had great fun riding in Idael's vintage car and Dania's cooking is great! One thing to improve the experience for guests further would be more comfortable matresses but this didn't stop... More

This is a very nice casa with excellent food! One of the best casas we stayed in. Idael y Dania are incredibly nice and friendly and very hard working people. The house is spotlessly clean, rooms are very pleasant and well appointed and Dania is an excellent cook. We had our best meal in the whole of Cuba here! The... More

I want to echo the sentiments of all the positive reviews here, and add a few things. Definitely eat dinner and breakfast at the casa. Everyone says the food in Cuba is bland but this isn't true when made with love in a casa. All the meals I had here were amazing and such a giant spread of food I... More

This is a great casa with outstanding hosts. Our host, Ideal picked us up at the airport. He is super friendly and speaks english. Our room was comfortable, A/C and private bathroom. We enjoyed sitting on the deck at night. Breakfast was outstanding and I strongly recommend it. We enjoyed walking around Matanzas from the casa and even found an... More

We stayed at this casa at the start and end of our holiday. It was very conveniently located to the Varadero airport and the city of Matanzas was one of our favourite places in Cuba - the people were very friendly and it is not a tourist trap. The sounds of the street are like music with children playing, people... More

Spent our final night in Cuba at Casa Hostal Idael y Dania and we definitely hope to return one day, both to stay at this lovely casa and to explore Matanzas! Great location, well-appointed casa, very welcoming and friendly hosts. Delicious meals in a delightful garden/gazebo setting. We stayed in the red room - spacious and comfortable, with ensuite bathroom... More

Our first casa in Cuba was so good we immediately booked a second night. The rooms are spacious, airconditioned and clean, on the balcony or in the garden there is always a place to read, rest and relax. Excellent food and welcome cocktails :-) Idael gave us very good travelling tips (in very good English!), especially for Matanzas and its... More

Idael and Danias was our first casa particular when we came to Cuba, and the last one as we left. We arrived in Varadero from where Idael picked us up with his fancy Ford Fairlane.

Our final night in Cuba was a restful treat thanks to the beautiful room, meals, Casa and property that Idael and Dania so thoughtfully have put together. The room was fully equipped with A/C, fan, beautiful bathroom, towels, and even soap (a first in our 2 weeks). We both loved our little veranda and read, played guitar and cooled down... More
