This was one of our best case's of our whole trip! Motica is a great host & sees to all the needs of his guests. He arranged all the transportation we needed and also a bird watching tour. Our rooms were very comfortable with lots of hot water. The morning sunrises over the water were spectacular from our terrace. We...

Motica is a lovely, genuinely friendly man with a big smile and a big sense of fun! He was so so helpful. Nothing was too much for him, even lending us money until the Cadeca opened the next day. Iyima his wife is a real sweetie too. Her food was some of the best we had in Cuba, including locally...

We spent three nights in Villa Rio-Mar, and found it clean, comfortable and attractive. We had an upstairs room, which I would recommend over the downstairs ones, as it has a great breezy patio with a view over palm trees and water. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, with lots of fresh fruit. We had dinner there several nights and this...

Stayed 2 nights in the town of Playa Larga in Cuba. This small hotel was nice. It's not directly on the beach but just a short walk away. Breakfast was great and dinner was good too. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great. The electricity went out throughout our stay but that wasn't the hotel's fault. They...

We arrived in Caletón on Mon 22nd Feb and found a room at Villa Rio Mar for 2 nights. We were given a downstairs room, which was ok but not as nice as the upstairs rooms. We asked about breakfast and dinner but the owner was very vague just telling us that it would be very cheap. We finally managed...

Sometimes you wake up in the morning thinking, "this is going to be a special day". Well, everyday is like that here at Rio Villa Mar. Your hosts Motica and Iyima are a wonderfully friendly couple that are the most helpful folks around. They seem to know just about everything you could want or need, and...if they don't, they can...

It's fair to say this was the accommodation highlight during our two-week stay in Cuba. We spent 3 nights at this casa which occupies a good location, close to the beach with views from upstairs over the lagoon - a good place to watch wildlife including herons, Black Hawks and Belted Kingfisher. But it's the hosts, the quality of the...
