“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Good location! Comfortable room! Nice people! The house is only a block away from the heart of of the town where you can find all the services, internet, money exchange, travel agency, taxi, bus station, restaurant, etc. The house is well maintained and very clean. The room is big and lots of privacy. The owner is an excellent cook. The quality of food is far better than most restaurants I visited in Cuba, including Havana and the resorts in Varadero and Cayo Largo.
Javier is very helpful and informative. He speaks perfect English. His introduction to the area is thorough and clear. He has connection to hostels in other cities. He helped me to book the accommodation for the rest of my trip that saved me from a lot of trouble. And the quality of those houses are very good. I will definitely stay here again if I revisit Trinidad.

Trinidad is such an amazing town and Javier is definitely the best place to stay in Trinidad.
We arrived late and Javier was there waiting for our arrival. The food Javier's family cooked for us is the best ever we had in Cuba. When we were complaining about the lobsters we had in Havana and Varadero were disappointing Javier responded with us with the most well cooked lobsters we had in Cuba, so fresh and so tasty. The room we stayed in are the one with the little garden, and the garden is so excellently built and felt like family. During our stay Javier arranged a number of activity for us such as horse riding trip to the waterfall. It is definitely a quality experience. Javier also shared a lot of valuable knowledge which is definitely worth listening to. We wish we could have stayed a lot longer and we will definitely come back.

Usually tourists come to trinidad to visit for 2 - 3 days, most of them are coming back to stay longer and Javier knows about it. The room he rents in his house is one of the best in town, ideal for 1 - 3 people, private entrance but there is not much you want to keep private once you start to know that beautiful family. Not only you get amazing food, also all kind of advice and helpful information can be provided by Javier and there is lots he can tell. Make shure to send early reservation request as this Casa is mostly booked with those who heard of it and come for the first time and all those who are always coming back again and again............

We enjoyed Javier´s friendly hospitality during our 6-day stay in Trinidad. The spacy room was nice with entrance both the street and the terrace. Everything was clean and neat during our stay there and breakfast was nutritious with fresh fruits, juices and eggs, ham, bread and tasty cuban coffee. As firsttimers in Cuba we benefit our hosts vast knowledge of his country and Trinidad´s surroundings. Staying at Javier's helped us know Trinidad. If you go there, you sure can stay independently by yourself, but whenever you need any assistance or good tips, your host Javier is there to help your stay unforgettable.

Trinidad is an amazing town, but Javier definitely made my stay a lot more memorable. He has a wealth of knowledge, and will share the best information about town - where to go, what to do, etc. His place is well located (just a minute away from plaza mayor), very clean, comfortable, and even has a patio. He arranged a number of activities for me like diving and salsa lesson. I wished I stayed longer and get to know him and Barbara more. Food was amazing! He made sure I didn't starve! I highly recommend staying here when in Trinidad.

I can only repeat what has been said before. the stay at javier's is one of the best I have had. It's not only the accomodation itself which is really nice and cosy and clean, and the food which is really good, especially when you are vegetarian, it's el ambiente, el personaje de javier. He has good information about most of the things you need and will help you in anything you need. He is caring and enjoyable to be around for a chat, a game of domino a cigar, whatever it is, he makes it pleasant and worth to stop by and will make sure that you want to stay longer than you expected!
