We would highly recommend this casa. We have stayed there twice (2014 and 2015) and returning in early 2016. The owners are very friendly and offer us coffee after our long daily explorations. The casa is very clean and there is a lovely quiet courtyard at the back of the casa where all of the rooms are located. The breakfast...

I felt very welcomed by Robert and his family. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and the area is quiet. There is also a balcony, air conditioning, and fans in the rooms. I would definitely recommend Villa Ely to anyone staying in Holguin.

Great experience staying in the city of Holguin. I've been a guest of Villa Ely twice (July, 2014 and December, 2014). I've stayed in both units not attached to the main house and I prefer the lower unit. It's quiet and restful and I felt very safe. Roberto and his family are very accommodating and I highly recommend this establishment.

I stayed here when I arrived in Cuba and the casa arranged for my airport collection. Likewise when I returned to Holguin at the end of my stay, they met me in person at the bus station. They were very flexible with preparing me meals and I felt the price was reasonable and there was always plenty of food, which...

We´ve been there in Feb. 2014 and it was a very nice experience! Very nice owner, great room, very good breakfast! A place to feel GOOD! It only takes a few minutes to get down town (taxi), and there is a great PALADAR across from Villa Ely, where you can enjoy good food.

Everything is lovely, from the ceramic tiles everywhere to the stucco and masonry on the walls of the house and apartments. It is a precious example of this kind of work and style of home. The Atrium containing a sheltered dining area abutted by the garden on the one side and the family room seen through elegant wrought iron works...
