This great place was recommended to us by a casa particular we stayed at in Trinidad, and it did not disappoint! Lidia and Santiago were exceptional hosts - friendly, helpful and welcoming and we had both dinner and breakfast on the lovely outside terrace for a small additional charge. Our "room" was a full apartment, with a separate sleeping area... More

I stayed here just last week and for just over the equivalent of $20 I got a full apartment with kitchen, bathroom, double bed, lounge and balcony overlooking the park. Also the owners are great and breakfast was delicious. Shame I only stayed for one night as I had to carry on my journey around Cuba

A great place to stay in Santa Clara, because Santiago and Lidia are such great hosts. I stayed two nights and enjoyed talking to Santiago (in English) and having Lidia's excellent breakfast and dinner in the quiet back garden that's filled with sunshine and flowers. Their ground floor room is quiet, and has a private bathroom. In Feb 2014 when... More
