“Lovely people, wel connected to get you going”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We stayed with Leonel and Amarillis for a couple of days. They are very hospitable people. Although they don't speak a lot of English communication is possible. Their good intentions compensate fully for this.
The room has a terrace with a table and chairs. Great for smoking a cigar with Leonel (una per dia). Airconditioning is available.
The food is prepared with a lot of love and breakfast and diner are great.
Vinales is a quiet village with great surroundings.

We were two finnish students who didn't know anything about viñales, but when we arrive to the house both leonel y amarilis helped us to get started, told us where to visit and gave us tips how to do things less expensive since we were students with smaller budget. The food is amazing and cheap compared to the prizes they have in the restaurants! Aircondition, comfy beds and nice terrace!

My husband and I stayed with Leonel and Amarillis for 1 night last week and it was absolutely perfect! Amarillis is a wonderful cook and Leonel couldn't have been more helpful. They are very attentive hosts who put the well-being and comfort of their guests at the forefront of their business. Leonel speaks a little English and he is very happy to give directions and advice on travel and sightseeing.
The prices are more than reasonable for the outstanding service that they provide. The room and bathroom were very clean and cosy. It has air conditioning,which is essential in Cuba. We would most definitely stay there again and would heartily recommend it to anyone. There was absolutely nothing wrong with our stay. Also, Leonel has a back yard which can be used for parking.

This is a very kind and hospital family who will do practically anything to make your stay in Viñales/Cuba as pleasant and as exciting as possible. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, the food is great, and the family's knowledge of the surroundings and their willingness to help with excursions and the like will help make sure that you get the very best out of your stay in Viñales. Very recommendable!

We stayed in this casa for a few days and loved it every moment. The family made us feel like we are relatives and not turist and this is what we wanted. The food was amazing could not stop eating so fresh and so nice. you have to taste Amarilis food. Leonel is very nice and very frendly if you need anything i mean anyting he will help you with anything, he would go extra mile just to help you. Jose, their son he is very nice lad, he can help you to learn how to dance salsa or play guitar thats if you have any talent.... i was absolutely rubbish..... he is very funny and relaxed guy. Their house is futher from Viniales centre but its really good as you cannot hear music from a music house. They have a nice view from a balcony where you can relax in a rocking chair with home made mojito. I am thinking of going back there next year we went there in July 2013.

Leonel and Amarilis are charming and amazing hosts and constantly go the extra mile to make you feel like this is your home. The outdoor terrace is quite large and a great place to relax in the afternoon or evening. Their son Jose is a great guy and quite the painter actually... Amarilis does wonders in the kitchen and makes some of the tastiest food I've had in Cuba. Definitely a must recommend -- you won't be disappointed.

We stayed three nights in this casa and enjoyed it very much! The family is helpful in every matter that might "concern" you (excursions, info about Vinales and the area). The food is excellent - big compliments to Amarilis!
The language barrier didn't influence our overall impression of feeling welcomed nor did it hinder us in understanding each other perfectly, in an interesting way!
