“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

From the outside this place looks very regular. But inside it's really a small family run hotel.
The facilities are so great and you have so much common space. My family loved the swimming pool and the rooftop.

Room Tip: Our room was close to the main street, so we could smell the car fumes in our room! See if you can g...

the room in this casa is spacious and comfortable, and the terrace is huge, and there is a good sized swimming pool.

the mojitos here are the best we have had in cuba, and the food is awesome! the grilled lobster is very delicious which comes with a special butter sauce. the chicken is also very tasty.

on the day we left, we arranged to go to Cienfuegos on a grand taxi. the taxi came 20mins late, and when it arrived, Mendez (the owner) made sure we were in safe hands and he made a few phone calls to the casa in Cienfuegos where we would be staying, to confirm our arrival etc.

We stayed 5 nights at this place and we really enjoyed our time there. The food was good and safe, the rooms clean and confortable and the staff was very kind. They are able to clean your clothes. There is a terrasse on the roof where you can enjoy the sun and drink good home made cocktails. Better for you to talk a little bit in spanish because Jorge doesn't speak english that much.

We stayed here for 8 nights over Christmas. Jorge and his staff made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble. We ate at the Casa every night, the food was fantastic and plentiful. We would particularly recommend the fresh fish and lobster. The cocktails from the bar were some of the best we had in Cuba, especially the mojitos and daiquiris. The pool is good fun and there are nice terraces to catch some sun.

Trinidad has lots going on and is worth spending a few days. Ancon beach is a taxi ride away and we would recommend the walk to the waterfall at Parque el Cubano.

In summary, a perfect place for a relaxing break with lovely, friendly staff and great service.

It is difficult to think of something positive that is new to say about this casa that hasn't already been said, but it is all true! It is really a little more of a hotel, and Jorge is very concerned to make sure that his guests have a wonderful time. The food is amazing! My partner and I ate at the casa every night over four nights because it was so good, and Jorge and his staff came up with something yummy and different for my vegetarian partner each meal. Suzie is lovely and makes amazing mojitos which she kindly taught my partner to make. I would highly recommend this casa!

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!
