Although Leonel and Amarilis were great hosts - could not do enough for us ie. arranging our dinners and made sure there was enough water and beer in the fridge!! The rooms were a let down - we are a couple in our early 60's - so backpacker standard rooms were a let down!! the rooms need a complete overhaul!!... More

This lovely couple could not do enough to help you, from the moment Leonel met us at the coach drop we knew we would be happy with them. They provide a wonderful breakfast, cocktails on the terrace, lunchtime snacks, give help with organising horseback treks, taxis for tours or journeys to restaurants. The rooms and bathrooms are in need of... More

Leonel and Amarilis are very nice and helpful. Nice clean rooms and a great terrace to relax. The house is close to everything, the busstation, the centre of town, restaurants, etc. But actually, you don't have to go to restaurants because Amarilis is an excellent cook! Would definitely recommend this place!

We stayed two nights at this Casa and the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was also excellent. However the rooms are very dated and the bathrooms look like a poor piece of DIY with electric wires dangerously close to the facilities. OK if you can get it for a low price.

I met this lovely family in January. As soon as I met them they made me feel like home. The beautiful roof terrace, view, atmosphere, delicious food, cocktails makes it complete. Leonel and Amarilys are easy to communicate with and their son speaks fluent English. They gave me good advice what I could do around. If you need help they... More

I arrived in Vinales without a reservation during a very very busy season and Leonel was booked but arranged a good place to stay for two nights. Then I had to move the 3rd night to Kati and it wasn't that great, very nice people but the bed was really uncomfortable and the bathroom had a bad smell. But the... More

We are a family of four and stayed with Leonel and Amailis just before Christmas when Vinales was very busy. They made us feel very welcome and were lovely with our two girls who said they will always remember them! Nothing is too much trouble for these hosts. The rooms were basic but comfortable and the terrace was lovely and... More

I feel I have to comment on this Casa as the reviews are so high, and this is why we agreed to be booked into this Casa, so I believe they are misleading and don't want someone else to make the same mistake. We booked four nights with Tour company on their recommendation and left after the first night and... More

I contacted Leonel before going to Cuba because I was afraid that Vinales would be fully booked... And kind of was. Leonel could not take me in the first night of my stay but got his brother to rent me a room. I was meant to be alone but while in La Habana I met a young woman and we... More

Casa Leonel and Amarillis is a fantastic place to stay in Viñales! The room is very nice, perfectly clean and quiet, it is at the end of the main street, so just enough to avoide noise at night. Even better than the room is the hospitality of Leonel and Amarilis. Leonel helped us to organize activities in Viñales and helped... More
