When coming from Havana we knew that there is no free room in Villa Sonada. But as normal practice in Cuba, house owner will arrange us another similar house. So we went to Hostal Rey (see rewiev) for two nights and to third house for one night. This arrangement was totally ok for us because all these houses were good... More

I visited La Villa Sonada in April. It is placed in Matanzas. If you are not sure how to get there, please turn near the theatre Sauto and search for Parque de la Libertad. If you ask any local for "Santa Teresa Calle" and then for La Villa Sonada or Mandy Casa Particular, people should show you direction - if... More

Landed late evening in Varadero, got picked up by pre-arranged Lada taxi. Roly the driver is Armando's go-to guy for help in and around the casa. The service at the casa is great, no matter what you ask for, Armando will help you out. The downstairs room has seen better days, could use a coat of paint, but the bed... More

My partner and I spent the first two nights of our Cuban holiday at La Villa Sonada. The town of Matanzas has many hidden delights (music university, art galleries, museums, etc) and we thoroughly enjoyed spending a full day exploring the town. I worked in the tourism/accommodation industry for many years and can say that we were treated with nothing... More

La villa sonata is the perfect house to spend your dream holidays ... We stayed at this place for few days as we were traveling across Cuba and it was a very unique experience as the owner of the house Mandy made us feel as we were royal family not only the rooms were amazingly clean and very spacious but...

We had booked this casa for 2 nights and when I got there I was given the "downstairs" room which was dirty with mold on the walls and very stuffy, enough to make me sick. The second night we were moved to the room upstairs. We were also booked for the second week end but we were shifted to another... More

Armando, the owner of this casa particulares, can speak a little English and is very helpful indeed. His casa is very clean and accommodating and the food is lovely. A terrace surrounds the upper floor of the property and the views from there are fantastic. Our room had a fridge containing water and beer and you could ask for coffee... More

We stayed only one night with Mandy and very much enjoyed our experience. Mandy has a lovely personality and we were greeted very warmly on arrival at 10am. He speaks excellent English while deftly encouraging our efforts with Spanish. He offered us a cup of coffee on his terrace overlooking the city. Fabulous view. We had a very nice large... More

Since Matanzas is super close to the Varadero airport we stayed at the Villa Soñada for our first night in Cuba and that was probably the best thing that could have happened to us. Not only that the place is really nice with a rooftop terrace and good food, but Armando is the best! He helped us with all our... More
