“Welcome to the family !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We were very pleased to start our vacation in Cuba at Hostal Pedrito. When we arrived, we received a warm welcome including a cocktail from the house. The rooms are cozy and most important very, very clean. The rooms are cleaned on daily basis and include a "mini bar", air conditioning and a television.
The hostal thereby provides a nice kind of hacienda where you can relax, read a book and order a variety of meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be ordered anytime. The hostal even has a menu card (!) which we haven't seen in any other casa in Cuba. The prices are affordable, certainly not too expensive.
Despite the fact that the Hostal is located 1 km outside Varadero (the town is called Santa Marta), Pedro offers a free (!) taxi service to Varadero (beach, shopping centre) at any time of the day and back!
Last but not least, Pedro and Nidia give you the feeling that you are part of the family. The are always open to questions, and they could give you traveling tips when needed. Pedro understands and speaks English modestly.

Much Love for Pedro and Nidia. We would never had guessed that a casa located nearby a tourist area would provide so much personal care and service. It turned out to be the best casa we've visited in whole Cuba! Thank you for that and greetings from Holland !

My fiancé is Cuban so I travel quite frequently to the Matanzas/Varadero area. We've stayed in a number of different casas particular but Hostal Pedrito is by far the BEST! Let's start with how CLEAN everything is! Our room was immaculate, the bed comfortable, in-room safe, private bathroom WITH toilet seat (very important!!), and a refrigerator stocked with water and soft drinks. Your room will be cleaned and made up whenever you want! The food is delicious and served 24/7, whenever you want! This was very useful to us as we were frequently coming back late and hungry!! The prices for the food were also VERY reasonable and comparable, if not cheaper, than local restaurants. Pedro and Nidia are AMAZING hosts - very welcoming and accommodating! Although not right on the beach, Pedro will take you to the best beach in Varadero and pick you up - whenever you want! I took advantage of this one day, and used one of his bicycles on another occasion (it was an easy 10-minute bike ride to the beach)! Without a doubt, the BEST hospitality in Cuba! Muchas gracias, Pedrito y Nidia! Hasta pronto!! Jojo y Eugenio

This is the best place to stay in Varadero with no doubts! The excellent service and the great hospitality definitely made an unforgettable experience of my vacation. The rooms are super neat and cozy and there is a wide variety of very good food and drinks available at all times. It’s a beautiful house with a very warm and relaxing atmosphere, the mornings are heavenly: nicely combined with little birds sweetly chirping and a delicious smell of Cuban coffee just brewed by Pedrito’s wife, Nidia. Ten minutes away from the most beautiful beach in the world it is definitely a place to go back again and again! I highly recommend it! Pedrito, Nidia and Aracelys, you guys are awesome! Thank you so much for everything! I will be back soon for sure!!! :))

During my Cuba trip with 3 friends, we came to Santa Marta where we stayed at Pedrito’s for 3 nights.

The cosy guest rooms are very neat, the whole house is clean and equipped with modern comfort. There is a huge variety of tasty food/drinks which you can order for breakfast and/or dinner.

Pedrito as well as his wife and their two daughters are very likeable hosts, and it was always funny to have a chat with them!

This was Cuban hospitality at its best! And I really can’t wait to see this lovely family again!

Muchas gracias, Pedrito!

I stayed in 5 or 6 different houses while in Cuba, but none were as clean & comfortable as this. Pedrito takes good care of his guests and his house is beautiful, not far from the beach and where I enjoyed the best food of our vacation, all for a great price. Check them out, you won't be disappointed!

I stayed at Pedrito`s Hostal for 3 nights in May 2012 and it was a fantastic experience. I enjoyed everything about the house.

It is cosy and neat and well equipped with modern facilities. Pedrito and his two precious daughters together his beautiful wife are adorable and were very helpful!

It is close to Varadero beach yet it is best if you travel by car. Otherwise, cheap taxis are available.

It is by far the best place where I stayed travelling around Cuba!

Pedro, thank you very much for welcoming us. I hope to be back to Cuba and see your family again! :)
