“A great place for both kids and adults”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Our boy, age 5, picked this casa in Trinidad when we were looking for casas for our trip to Cuba in November 2012. He could not have done better! This turned out to be a great place to relax after travelling around on Cuba. Thanks to other travellers cancellations, we were able to stay for six nights. We enjoyed every single day and night. Jorge and his staff were both friendly and proffecional. The food was the best of any casas we visited on Cuba. This is the place to have Cuban lobster! We could easily walk to the city center of old town any time, and it was always good to get back to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere by the pool, the bar (!) or the sunroof. The sunroof was also a very pleasant and beautiful place to be at night after dark. And big enough for kids to run around.Our room was spacious and clean. We can not think of one thing to complaint about at this casa, and will highly recommend if for a stay in this beautiful and interesting town.

A very good casa in Trinidad. We loved the swimming pool. It was very hot and so very nice to cool off in the swimming pool.
The room was very clean en we felt very save.
Jorge and his staff are very friendly people.
The breakfast is made for a king and you should eat diner with them. It is very good.
There is a terrace on the roof, cosy, you can relax there with the cocktails that are made by Jorge.
When you are visiting Trinidad it is a must to stay with Jorge. you won't be disappointed!!
Nice detail: we arrived by bus and they came and picked us op with a bicycle transformed into a sort of touktouk. The drive was very fun!

This casa is amazing.

Our room was awesome- an internal room with no exterior windows but one which opens into the courtyard but cosy when it got a bit chilly at night. Everything is very clean but the shower is not the best.

The people that work in the casa and the owner Jorge are all lovely and very sweet. Their English is not the best but you can get by if you know basic Spanish. There is a small pool and a bar and a massive roof terrace.

It is also pretty close to everywhere in town.

Food is tasty- breakfast is yummy- they bake freshly, or make pancakes, every morning and dinner was pretty good (recommend eating in cause we didn't find any good restaurants in Trinidad).

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.
