My girlfriend Barbara and I had such an amazing time staying at Reina's & Paco's. In all honesty we wished that we had allocated more time from our trip of Cuba for Havana. Reina, Paco and their son in law Jose were so incredible friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. When we first arrived they welcomed us with cuban coffee and we relaxed on the patio which over looked the malecon, la fortaleza and a beautiful park. Really the location was perfect. It is right on the water, walking distance to Habana vieja as well as centro and the other side of the malecon. Jose was so nice, he drove us down to exchange money (waited for us which we went in side) and then took us to the partigas cigar factory. Our room was very spacious, with our own balcony as well as bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, clean and I slept like a baby after spending the day walking around the city. The best part aside from conversation with Reina and Paco was the breakfast! I guess I am a sucker for good food and wow was it good. They had freshly squeezed mango, pineapple or papaya juice. Fresh fruit, delicious scrambled eggs with peppers, sausage, onions, etc. (I seriously was asking what they put in the eggs because they were so good! hah) They also had beer, water, freshly made lemonade, etc. on request and in the afternoons surprised us with fried bananas. They help us get a rental car, as well as really give us an amazing insight into what it is like living in Havana which really is huge in my opinion. I like really experiencing the culture which you really can't get when you stay at a hotel. Reina and Paco were amazing and would absolutely recommend to stay at their casa particular.
