“Wonderful Host and Excellent Casa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you are going to Trinidad (which I highly recommend) you must try to reserve a room at Jorge's. I can't imagine any other casa particular being better. Jorge is a great person and he genuinely wants all of his guests to be comfortable and have an excellent time. My wife (6 months pregnant at the time) and I stayed for 4 nights and he made sure she was well taken care of.

The food is great with large portions and also very reasonably priced.

The house also has a small pool and lounging area on the roof to soak up the sun if you don't have time to get over to Playa Ancon. The location is great and easy walking distance to all the sights in Trinidad. There is no street noise and we always had a good night sleep as the beds were comfortable.

Muchas Gracias Jorge!

We stayed at this casa for 4 nights recently and although we have no Spanish and Jorge very little English, we got on well in this very clean and comfortable establishment. We ate there on the night of our arrival and found the food ample and tasty, as were our breakfasts. It is a five minute walk to the main 'touristy' part of Trinidad and despite getting lost a few times around the many 'squares', it was interesting discovering new places. The swimming pool, although freezing cold, was spotlessly clean and exhillerating after walking in the hot sunshine. We had the use of both terrace areas, although the one on the rooftop could be noisy sometimes, as the road outside is a main thoroughfare. Our bedroom was off the centre courtyard and was quiet and roomy. The airconditioning, typically Cuban, was noisy, but a fan was provided and that sufficed without any problem. Jorges & staff serve excellent cocktails, but you do need your own hairdryer.The decor is bright and colourful and we sipped our Pina Coladas, next to the small pool, in our little Trinidad oasis.

What an amazing Casa!!! My boyfriend and I stayed in this Casa for 3 nights and we really enjoy our time there!!! First of all this Casa is run as a proper business by Jorge, who provides his customers all they need. There is a big terrace for sunbathing, a small pool and everything is beautifully decorated. Here we had the BEST MOJITOS in Cuba! Forget la bodeguita del medio, Jorge produces the most delicious MOJITOS ever tested and his staff is also trained in the same way! The food al also very good, we had all our breakfasts there and dinner twice!
The room was good, all very clean!
I strongly reccomend this Casa located very conveniently very close to the centre of Trinidad!!

Our group of 5 adult travelers took over Jorge's casa in early November and it was the best part of our trip to Cuba. There are many areas in the house to relax - poolside, roof terrace, bar area and even inside if you want. The whole house is spotless. The meals are fantastic. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners at Jorge's. Of course we also took advantage of the bar service and were equally impressed by the quality and variety of drinks. Susana even gave us bar service while we were in the pool! We were actually quite sad when the van came to pick us up to go to Varadero. And rightly so. The meals at Jorge's were much better quality than the ones at our 4 star all inclusive in Varadero. Which reminds me, our vegetarian in the group was also impressed by the options that Jorge was able to provide for her.
I used "Bed & Breakfast Vinales" to book the casa and their service was also great. Jose followed up on all my questions very promptly and even helped us out when another company we used went offline.

From the outside Jorge's looks like any other Casa... but when you step through the door you see Jorge has created something of a psychedelic wonderland... the walls are the brightest colours and even the lizards go multicoloured... it's great.

Aesthetic aside Jorge offers clean and comfortable rooms, lovely food, a fun bar and best of all a pool!!! Which is so important in HOT Cuba and being able to cool off whenever you need to. Jorge's is like a little hotel really and he and his lovely staff (from memory her name is Susanna and she is AWESOME!) will do everything they can to make sure you have a great time...

Enjoy!!

Room Tip: Any room is good... Jorge doesn't speak much English at all so e-mailing is probably best

The best casa we have stayed in Cuba. It has very nice swimming pool with the bar next to it! Really something you don't normally get in casas. With only 3 rooms, the chances are that you will be the only people by the pool.
Also it has amazing roof terrace.
It has a feel of the private villa. We spent much more time in the casa, by the pool, on the roof terrace and in the bar, than in Trinidad itself. There was an oil painting in the bar for sale and we decided to buy it, Jorge organised someone to come and safely wrap it for us.
Bedrooms are very spacious and quiet. No rooster 5 am alarm clock! If you have a car, there is a garage as well.
Breakfast and dinners are very good and Jorge himself is a great and very relaxed host. His cocktails were nice and strong!
Very good value for money and could easly spend there more than just two nights.

We stayed at Jorges for 3 nights in August and had a great stay. It is one of the only Casas with a pool in Trinidad and the pool was such a treat to escape the heat and relax after a big day. The house is clean and bright and spacious with lots of sitting areas, courtyards and a rooftop terrace. It is central to town (5 minutes walk) without being too close to all the music venues, so it is quiet at night to sleep. Jorge makes great cocktails, and his staff were so friendly and helpful. Meals were great - we ate breakfast and dinner at the Casa and it was good fresh food after some awful meals we had outside in restaurants. We don't speak much Spanish so it was a bit tricky at times to communicate, but we got by. On the whole, its great value and again - the pool was amazing in the heat!!!
