We stayed at Hiraida and Jose's beautiful colonial house from 15th - 18th August. It was part of our honeymoon trip around Cuba and this was our favourite accommodation. Hiraida and Jose are a warm, welcoming couple and they were always happy to give us help and advice about what to visit. Jose makes lovely fresh fruit juices which are...

When we were about to resign ourselves to three nights of unhappiness at less than ideal hostels, we fortuitously stumbled upon Hostal Amatista. The house is located right around the main square and has huge and clean...

This was my first casa experience in Cuba and it was wonderful. It's a charming colonial style house so the bedrooms were huge with beautiful high ceilings. The rooms still had everything you needed though...aircon, fans, fridge etc. The location couldn't be better with it being just a few minutes walk to the main square and all the nice restaurants....

The room was nice, clean and the food very good! Maybe better if they had eliminated the plants around the breakfast area, so it wouldn't attract so many flies, but overall very good quality! Very friendly people! Recommended

I was in October in the hostal Amatista. First things first, José and Hiraida are extremely nice and accommodating. They make a great breakfast and dinner. The room was good and had a private bathroom, a refrigerator and an air conditioner. Next visit in Cuba, I will definitely go back over.
