My husband and I stayed at this casa for 7 nights. We picked them because of their proximity to the beach and for their good reviews on Trip advisor.
The moment we arrived we knew that we made the right decision. Bertha and Alfredo are the most hospitable hosts. They are very eager to please and very intuitive to your needs. Just an example, we were having conversation and we mentioned that we like our cappuccinos and yogurt. Well, the next morning low and behold we were served yogurt for breakfast and espresso and steamed milk. The yogurt was the best one I have ever had, it was naturally made (I don't know how) but it was very creamy and smooth.
The breakfast they served consists of eggs, bread, fresh papayas, pineapples and bananas. Also the best coffee and freshly made juice (mango, guavas and oranges)
We ate at their casa every night for dinner. The choices were lobster, shrimp, fish, pork, and chicken. Along with that, there's rice, salad, soup, yucca and potatoes. We tried everything, my husband ate whatever the family is having that night, I on the other hand ordered lobster three times and it was my favorite. Alfredo makes it so good, the tomato sauce that goes with it is excellent with rice. His yuca is to die for as well. Alfredo is an excellent cook. Bertha also makes killer Mojitos and Pinacoladas.
Bertha catered to all our needs, from phoning a cab to arranging for our accommodation in Havana. We spent a night in Havana so Bertha phoned another casa for us.
Both Alfredo and Bertha will bend over backwards to cater to all their guests. They all made us felt at home including their daughters Laurent and Claudia. What a lovely family.
We shared stories using our broken spanish and their broken english. We played domino, both of them are very competitive, we also had a lot of fun dancing. Alfredo is a very good dancer.
We not only had an awesome vacation, we also gained new friends. We cannot wait to return, planning it already.
We highly recommend this casa.
