“NIIIIICE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

the houses (brothers and sisters) are located 10min by walk from Vinales, main square, off the road.
It is in the center of a very nice garden, overlooking the mountains : a little piece of heaven.
The rooms are big (two double beds in each) and fresh. The food is yumm (be ready for a HUGE meal) and the hosts are really friendly.
French, English and Spanish are spoken.

I really recommend this place. More info : villaelhabanoarobatcorreodecubadotcu

I stayed in many casa particulares in cuba and this place does not compare!!! Great family, amazing food, and best location/view in the town. Situated just 2 minutes (walking) distance outside the main town strip which i think is best. Homes on the main strip were crowded and small looking, this place has lots of space-garden,rooms...everything! I highly recommend people stay here if you want to get a true cuban experience!

very good location, close to the busy Vinales "downtown", friendly family, as soon we came we understood we was in the right place, we had wonderful days in Los Habonas we felt part of the family.....we stayed in a nice pink room with ensuite bathroom
breakfast is fresh and well done, is served outisde in the garden
after a day trip around the valley you can also have a fantastic dinner in a relaxing atmosphere instead to look for restaurants that usually don't serve such good menù like Nina and her mummy Bertha can do.....
You can check their site elhabano.alwaysdata-dot-net or contact them directly

BRAVI of all you! and GRAZIE again for everything you have done for us

My wife and I recently stayed at Villa El Habano. We were very pleased. Yuneyka is very friendly and helpful and speaks fairly good English. Her brother Yuray may be the nicest guy in the entire world and his wife is a great cook. The whole family is just lovely - truly wonderful people. The place is very clean. Don't love the pink and lace, but that is a minor quibble. My only other complaint is they tried to feed us too much! We couldn't finish the delicious suppers they made. They bent over backwards to accommodate us. The setting is perfect. It is just outside the town and is surrounded by organic farms. Very peaceful (except the roosters but we didn't mind). You can walk to town in a couple of minutes. We much preferred that to being right in the city itself. The botanical garden is just a couple of hundred meters down the road and Yuneyka gave us a private tour as she volunteers as a guide there. Highly recommended. We would definitely go back.

I spent a few days with this great family in Vinales. It was like home! They have really cheap proces and fantastic hospitality. Food was great and Nina is so so helpful. Can only recommend that place.

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed it a lot. Yuneyka is very helpful with things to do in the area. We stayed at yuray's house and he is very friendly and his wife cooks delicious food. The room is really good and had the best shower that we came across in cuba. Yuray doesn't speak much English but yuneyka's English is very good and she was always on hand if we had a problem. The house location was something that we really appreciated. It is far enough out of the town centre to be quiet while still being only a short walk to get there. We really enjoyed the horse riding tour and Vinales is a lot more relaxing than some of the bigger cities and very beautiful. However, I would advise travellers to spend new years. Eve in a larger city.
