We had great time at Roy's home. This casa is well located in Santiago (near of the key sites of Santiago). The room was good, and the terrace wonderful, with a beautiful view. Roy is a very nice and funny guy.

Roy's Terrace Inn is centrally located yet very quiet and charming. Roy and his team are fantastic hosts. Roy speaks fluent English and was extremely helpful in helping us negotiate the city, find our way around and tried to locate our lost luggage by persistent telephoning to the airport in Havana. Delicious breakfasts and dinners are served on a lush... More

Roy's Terrace Inn was recommended by Casa Nilson in Baracoa. We are truly grateful for the recommendation as it was absolutely a dream to stay in. There were five of us in the group and Roy went out of his way to make sure we would all be accommodated by arranging extra beds etc. We had breakfast and dinner in... More

Roy's Terrace Inn has a great location in Santiago being only a couple of streets away (5 min walk if that) from the central square. The casa itself is more like a small hostel with 4 rooms and a rooftop restaurant/bar. The house is beautifully decorated with murals of Santiago and the surrounding countryside, both in the public spaces and... More

This is my second stay at Roy's Terrace Inn and it is even better then I remember. The same happy welcoming people are still here and the warm family atmosphere remains.

Stayed here for four nights. Very centrally located, close to famous Casa de la Trova de Santiago de Cuba and the cathedral. Breakfasts and dinners recommended at the inviting, airy terrace. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Spotless and comfortable room.
