First the bad points. Good friends of ours said we must visit Playa Larga. They told us they had eaten on the balcony by the beach and that it was lovely. So we arrived after a long drive expecting to throw open our bedroom windows and see a beautifully clean beach and clear sea. Instead we were shown to a... More

As said elsewhere, this is a beach-front bar with four rooms. Two have one wall / window facing the patio and restaurant either side of the office and bar, there is a third which is alongside the internal corridor and a fourth at the back of the property off the central lobby. Let's start with this last one. We deliberately... More

..... firstly you have to accept this is Cuba, not the States, not Europe and is a country that is just opening up more widely to the tourist. It is a really nice place to stay, not because the food is good (which it is), not because it's right on the beach (which it is), not just because it has... More

This isn't a standard Casa - it's a beach bar. We were concerned that there would be noise because our room was right on the patio/restaurant area. Luckily that wasn't a problem as there was nobody out there late at night, but it could be. The problem was the really uncomfortable bed. We had the room with the pull down... More

We spent one night at this Casa - we hadn't booked anywhere to stay in Playa Larga & luckily, they had a room available. We were very impressed by the service and the food was excellent. We even directed some tourists from Germany there for dinner the following evening. However, we went there for dinner with some friends a few... More

10/10 Fantastic casa right on the beach. The front two rooms have windows onto the patio/restaurant area. The breakfasts are huge, of great quality and with good variety. You can also have lunch and dinner here (eg sandwich $3, fruit salad $3, burger $3). There are a few restaurants in the ‘town’ and a locals bar. Anna can help arrange... More

Spotless room and en suite immediately behind the patio overlooking the beach. Friendly proprietors and staff, nothing too much trouble. We stayed here for 2 nights, really enjoying the beach and the bay, especially the stunning sunrises. Highlight for us was, however, Viniola taking us on a wonderful guided birding day in the forest and the wetlands, where we saw... More

While we stayed at Zuleyda's we barely saw the owners, so it does feel more like an hostal than a casa. However the staff is extremely efficient, and the casa is run like you would expect a small inn to be run at home. The room & bathroom were sparkling clean, bed comfortable, all quiet. There is a in room... More

Our worst experience in Cuba. Arriving as planned after New Year's in Trinidad, we were told that no room is available. We showed them the confirmation (email) and also saw we are listed in the arrival book. After a while we were told that we called earlier and cancelled... an obvious lie that I find unacceptable. No help was offered... More

My husband, 19 year old son and I stayed here with a Witness for Peace delegation. We had the back room with a bathroom en suite. Our bathroom was adjacent to the public bathroom. The room had 2 single beds and a double. There was a refrigerator and air conditioner in the room. The a/c has only an on/off switch.... More
