This was a very nice and clean casa in the charming village of Vinales. Annie welcomed us very friendly and with a huge smile. The room was large and clean, so was the ensuite bathroom. The fridge was filled with drinks. We were only here for one night (unfortunately) and we ate dinner in the lively village but the breakfast... More

This was definitely one of our best stays in Cuba. Francisco and Any were such friendly hosts and provided us with all the information we needed to visit the area. The room was just great and we completely adored the rocking chairs. They were perfect for our evenings in Viñales. Definitely recommend this casa!

This place is faultless & can't thank Francisco & Any enough for all the help they gave us when we were there. We ate every night at the casa & Any made sure that all my veggie meals were delish. I really loved the stuffed pancakes & Malanga fritters & so want the recipe. I also wanted to steal her... More

This was our first casa stay in Cuba and Any and Francisco could not have been more welcoming. The room was great and the breakfast was lovely. We ate one evening meal there which was also delicious. They both speak good english which was helpful as we were still finding our Cuban feet!!

Any and Francisco are the most friendly hosts in Viñales, we could not ask for a better family, they were very accommodating, the room was very clean, breakfast was delicious, food on request was also very tasty and reasonably priced. Any works at Infotour so it is very handy because she can recommend trips and tours to do in Viñales,... More
