Spent 4 enjoyable nights here, very tranquilo and peacful, room was comfortable and the staff were friendly, would recommend!! Situated just outside the centre, only a few minutes walk which was perfect.
We visisted Vinales at end of December 2018. Great Location to explore the valley. Very quiet at cul-de-sac road. The roof terrace invites for relaxing and chilling. Very kind people giving assistance for onward travel in Cuba.
We were lucky enough to enjoy the hospitality of Rubio and his wife for three days. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good location for town. Lovely rooms and warm hosts. Sadly our lack of Spanish meant we were not able to fully take advantage of their local knowledge however they made us feel very welcome. Thanks guys.
We stayed at the Rubio’s and his family. They are very nice people, especially the Rubio who is a great story teller! He walked us to a nice restaurant one evening. The house/site is beautiful and colorful, with a great rooftop that has a wonderful view over the roofs and valley. Watch the sunset there or read your book early morning. The rooms are very basic in terms of luxury. The furniture was built by the Rubio himself and that adds charm to the place. The breakfast was decent, but we’ve had much better and fuller breakfasts in other casas. The house is about 10 mins away from the downtown area, so very easy to go out and come home.
We had some wonderfull days in Vinales November 2017. Vinales is a small town, and La Cabana El Rubio is just 500 m from "center", a short walk, and in a quiet place. The room was a small apartment with 2 rooms: bedroom and Kitchen/Bar+ bathroom. rood breakfast and a roof patio. cabanaelrubio @ nauta.cu I am not sure that the general hotel questions applies to Cuba Hostals ..... there was no boutique in the lobby , nor a front desk :-)
