We stayed here for two nights and were very comfortable. Our room was spotlessly clean with aircon, fridge and ensuite. We had a small terrace, but the rooftop terrace was fantastic for relaxing with great views towards the mogotes – drinks and cocktails were available. Breakfasts were excellent with great coffee and fresh produce. Our hosts were friendly and attentive – welcoming despite the developing coronavirus situation when other casas were closing – thank you.

We booked this casa at home and we came by collectivo.

The driver phoned Ridel to ask where the casa was.

The casa is an small walk from the centre and quite with a perfect view on the roof.

Ones we came Ridel welcomes us in his casa. On the first floor he has 2 rooms and a study/breakfast room.

His brother in law helps him to run the casa together with the dog Merlin.

Breakfast is big and generous. We liked the omelette.

For info, bike rental and horseback riding he helped us perfect to manage.

We booked 2 nights, but we stayed 4.

Thanks for the warm welcome

Paul and Mariëlle

We stayed here with friends in November. The casa was very clean, with hot water, a fridge and air conditioning.
When we arrived we were offered cocktails on the terrace. The casa's always have the best cocktails in Cuba, they were delicious. It was too easy to order more!
We had an evening meal at the casa one night which was amazing, prepared with so much attention to detail and obviously a love of cooking. So much food.
We loved Vinales, such a beautiful place to live. The short walk in to town each evening past all the families in their rocking chairs on their verandas was a sure sign of the relaxed pace of life in Vinales.

Awww we loved Vinales and we loved this casa particular. Ridel, his wife and daughters and the brother in law are such warm, kind people! The house is pretty with his amazing roof terrace from where to admire sunsets. Our room was small but clean and with everything you need and even with a balcony. The breakfast prepared by the brother in law, sorry I cannot remember his name, it was the best we had in all Cuba. If you are planning to visit the tobacco and coffee farms by horse but you are a bit scared of horse riding, like I was, trust Ridel and the guys who work for him., you ll have a great time. Vinales will always be in our memories and hurts

Exceptional hosts! Our stay was wonderful, only thing I would change was to make our stay longer. My husband had forgotten his wallet on the bed and arrangements were made with our taxi driver in Havana to return it to us.
Ridel helped make arrangements for a tour via hours carriage. Everything was beautiful, beyond expectations!

our room was at the front, we had access to the terrace and an easy walk to the very top lookout.

Our room was clean, Ridel made sure that every day we had clean towels, beer, and also helped with recommendations in town.

Very friendly and lovely people

We stayed two days in the Casa Particular Ridel y Claribel (5min walk from the City center). The room was really good and the owners were really nice and supportive. We enjoyed the really good Breakfast. Besides, We really liked the sunset roof top sitting area. The owner arranged for us two bicycles and we had a nice trip to the indian caves. The organized 1/2day hiking tour with a local guide was amazing. We really recommend to stay in this Casa Particular.

I can't recommend this casa highly enough. The hosts - Ridel and Claribel are amazing, generous, warm, and a delight to be with. Their home is your home and they really mean it.

The bedroom was ideal, separate from the main house, with it's own balcony and easy access to the roof terrace, which has the most spectacular views of Vinales. There are little extras provided - a fridge complete with drinks, complimentary body wash and shampoo (which are expensive in Cuba), a hair-dryer, a sewing kit and even an umbrella, in case it rains.

They talk you through all the local tours available, but there's no pressure to do any of them. If you choose to, they book them for you and arrange all transport.

And best of all, Claribel's mother cooks the best lobster I've ever tasted. In fact, it was so amazing, we ate a similar meal two nights on a trot and for just 10 CUCs each. Breakfast was huge, sausage sandwiches, eggs, fruit, cake, bread and an endless supply of coffee.

The bedding and towels were changed daily, the fridge always restocked, they were upfront about charges for extras and they gave us their time, their passion for Cuban and their insights into living there.

Nothing was too much trouble and without doubt, this casa and its hosts were the best part of our Cuban trip. We would definitely return there.

Hi, Do you have WiFi at the Casa?
Answer from Amy B
London, United Kingdom2,517 contributions508 helpful votes
It's Cuba- there is no wifi in casa particulars. You have to go to wifi areas in towns, but, before you do this, you have to queue for ages at an ETSECA office and buy cards with the wifi user information. You can't just join onto wifi like in other places. To be fair, the ETSECA office in Vinales had the shortest queues of any place we went in Cuba, and the wifi zone is about a 5 minute stroll from Casa Ridel. Hope this helps.
