Extremely kind and careful people. Lovely master of the house. Located in the heart of Santiago, two minutes walking from Parque Central, it's a very nice and 'international' 2 floor apartment with a lovely sight from the terrace. Clean room, even if the one in front of the kitchen is a bit small. Breakfast is medium, but enjoining it on... More

Cute inn located right in the city centre with magical terraces that take you away from the Cuban heat thanks to their lush vegetation (mainly ferns and orchids). Service is the best we have had in our month trip throughout Cuba: they even helped us with our broken car when no one else cared. Top terrace is a dreamy place,... More

This was easily the best casa I stayed at in Cuba. The rooftop terrace is dripping in beautiful flowers and climbers, making it a real oasis from the gritty streets of sweltering Santiago. The rooms are hotel-quality, spotless and decorated with crazy Cuban murals. But best of all, the staff are wonderful. The boys went out of their way to... More

The owner of this building is a delight as are his staff. We had a memorable stay here. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace in particular was wonderful both for the food and the ambience - a sort of Hanging Garden of Babylon. The rooms are comfortable and the mural decorations will amaze you. Roy & Diego provided good advice and... More

We have spent one night at Roy's casa and had dinner there twice. The apartment was great, really comfortable and clean. The casa has a nice terrace with flowers and plants all around.

We loved staying at Roy's. The food was fantastic, the people lovely and the rooms nice. However the service was the main bonus. We had our flight to Havana cancelled and Roy spent a long time organising us a safe, newer taxi to get back to Havana so we could make our flight to Australia. Nothing was too much trouble....
