Lovely location overlooking the sea, just along the road to Ancon on the outskirts of La Boca. Friendly, helpful owners and staff, good breakfasts and generous well cooked dinners. If you want to take a taxi into Trinidad or down to Ancon then it can be a lottery picking one up in La Boca so ask Yile to sort one... More

Maikel and Yile (and the other staff) are so friendly. You can notice that positive mood at the moment as you meet them. The place is just close to the beach, which permits a delicious dinner during the sun set with a tasteful mojito prepared with love (a highlight). It's is one of the best place you can stay in...

I should start by saying that El Capitan is good for anywhere, not just Cuba. If it was just compared to Cuba it would need a new categorisation. We had a clean and comfortable room with excellent air conditioning, it also had a full size fridge. The veranda had a fantastic view over the sea and nearby hills and was... More

The absolute highlight of our 10 day Cuban road trip. After a long drive through the mountains we were greeted by Yile with iced cold drinks. The room was beautiful, 5 star quality looking out to the caribbean sea. Food is just amazing - homemade everything and delicious. We ended up never eating out in the evenings because the setting...

Breakfast was amazing and Mojito was the best we had at Cuba! Windows from our room was situated just next to road but in this area... More

This was by far the best Casa we stayed at out of 6 on our two weeks in Cuba. We were there for four nights. The location is idyllic. It's just 5 minutes by taxi from Trinidad, or 5 minutes walk from the sleepy village of La Boca. It is located right on the ocean, on a coral rock shore.... More

Great location, excellent copious hot water, friendly hosts and altogether recommended! Good food and a good place to stay to swim at Playa Ancon, about 10 minutes away by car. The lady of the house cooks to order every day and nothing is too much trouble.
