This was my third trip to the island and my second stay with this particular family. I spent some 10 days with them last January. I felt right at home once again. Adis and Rafael have opened their door to tourists for quite a number of years now and their experience is obvious. Their warm welcome, the spacious bedrooms, reliable... More

I've been in Cuba twice and in the second time I went with my husband to Baracoa especially to see Rafael's family. the first time I went solo and Edward (Rafael's son) and Yixel really look out for me and made sure I had a fun and safe trip, and gave me great advises on where to go. Plus Yixel... More

You enter this place through the owners living area making it secure and private. Up a flight of stairs there are two lovely rooms (great if you are two couples travelling together). The rooms are en suite and have comfortable beds. They also have fans and air conditioning units. There is a shared area on the same level for use... More

I am a little confused by the address as we stayed with Rafael and Addis at Frocombe 236 . We had the room opening on the terrace which we loved. The food was delicious and Addis told me the secret of her coconut sauce for fish and shrimp.

I found this Place on the Cuban site Rent Cuban House as one of a handful of casas particulares, and thought it looked OK. I couldn't really tell from the small photos but it looked decent enough and the price was all right; 30 CUC a night for three persons. The three of us Went in a rented car from... More

Rafael and Adis were very friendly hosts and their casa particular is nicely located on a quiet yet central street. They hired a local taxi driver to take us around who also turned out to be charming. The breakfast and dinner we has was second to none - make sure you try the coconut fish! However when booking make sure... More

Hosts Rafael Y Adis can help with all aspects, and their staff are simply wonderful. Great room, and we ate breakfast and dinner there, and it was some of the best food on our trip - Baracoa is renowned for its fish with Licheta sauce - they delivered. Easy walking distance of all main sights - its in a side... More

We arrived at 8.30 p.m. The weather was awfull due to the heavy rainfall. Adis and Rafael gave us an overwhelming warm welcome, which we needed badly after a horrible trip coming from Camagüey. Our airconditioned room was very spacious with two comfortable kingsize beds. The shower with warm or hot water took away the troubles of that day. Although... More

I spent six nights and it was a perfect stay. Lovely hosts and family. Very hospitable, kind and used to having visitors. The housekeeper María is a real treasure and an excellent cook. The Laundry service she offered was as well perfect. The rooms are spacious, modern and comfortably furnished and have a private bathroom. Everything is very clean and... More
