“Absolutely wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Having stayed in numerous casa's in cuba Jose & Kirenia's was without a doubt the best. Their hospitality is exceptional. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. All have en suite's and refridgerators stocked with water, juice and beer. The casa has several terrace areas for you to sit out in. In the evenings we chose to sit on the roof terrace with views of the town and mountains.
If you stay at Jose & Kirenia's my top tip is to eat IN! Kirenia's food is amazing. It was the best food we had on our holiday; wether it was the prawns in a lovely garlic sauce, or the tender pork, or incredible fish fillet and even huge mouthwatering lobsters, it was all beautiful and such good value. For $10 cuc's Kirenia provided soup as a starter, a main accompanied by potatoes cooked in a different sauce or way each night, rice, salad and vegetables and a desert. Even the lobster was only 10 cuc's. Amazing. We could not have asked for more and generally could not eat it all. The food was a million times better than any of the restaurants we ate in and half the price.
Kirenia and Jose were able to book activities for us (I'd definitely recommend the riding but hold on!) and tranfers between towns at very good rates and the casa is only a short walk to the historical centre of Trinidad.
I could not recommend Jose & Kirenia's more highly. Without a doubt the best place to stay and it made our stay in Trinidad just perfect.

We stayed with Kirenia and Jose on our very first night in Cuba and after a long flight/drive we were welcomed and by them and immediately felt at home. We stayed for 4 nights in and enjoyed an amazing breakfast's every day (the mango juice is the best!) and wonderful meals on the roof terrace in the evening. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, reading on the roof terrace first thing in the morning was a great way to start the day for me. Trinidad is a great town to explore and Kirenia made some perfect recommendations of places for us to go, but I would really recommend eating in their Casa for the best food. The whole time we felt so looked after, it really was the highlight of our trip.

If you visit Trinida, you have to book this casa definitely! It's really worthy. Nice people and very hostle. No question is too much for Jose & Kirenia. Location is perfect, near to city centre. Don't leave before enjoy the great meals they prepare: langosta en shrimps. Best food that we've eaten in Cuba! Don't expect a Riu hotel, but for people travelling in casas, this is one of the best!

Jose and Kirenia were unbelievably helpful. They are great cooks and took excellent care of us. The rooms are clean, good light. The casa is about 5-10 from the main area - we enjoyed the walk but it is not right in the centre. Great value too.

We stayed in the casa for two nights, we really enjoyed our stay. Jose and Kirenia are a wonderful couple, very warm, smiley and helpful. I got a very nice handmade necklace as a present from Kirenia, I thougt that was so kind of her. The casa has got a beautiful view from the rooftop terrace, its a bit of a walk from the Trinidad center but the walk is very fun and interesting and we loved having that walk.
They kindly offered to pick us up from the bus stop.
Thank you so much Jose and Kirenia, we would love to come back!

Just came back from 2 nights stay with Jose & Kirenia. Their casa is very central and convenient to walk everywhere in Trinidad. We travelled from Havana by bus and they sent a bike taxi to pick us up and our luggage which was a huge help as there is a lot of confusion and shouting with locals enticing you to follow them to their casas as soon as you step off the bus. Our twin room was very clean and comfortable and came with its on bathroom. The food was so good we didn't bother eating out and had all our meals at the casa, with huge breakfasts served on the patio downstairs and dinners on the roof terrace looking out onto the hills with spectacular sunsets. Jose & Kirenia are a very relaxed young couple and made our stay extremely comfortable. Neither of us spoke any Spanish which wasn't a problem as Kirenia understands very good English. Would highly recommend it.

We arrived at Jose y Kirenia's and were so well cared for and taken care of that that its hard to discribe as I am not much of a writer. They gave us the room downstairs as they were thinking we might be a little frail as we came to celebrate our 35th wedding aniversary. They gave us a wedding anniversary and birthday gift as it was my birthday also. Romantic candle light diners on the roof, awesome breakfasts in the cozy tropical little patio downstairs, great coffee, great people, great room, everything so clean!! The best of all is that you can feel that Kose & Kirenia really love and care about you. They are positive, organized, loving, caring professionals (Kirenia is a Chemical Engineer and Jose a Vet) who own and run a bed & breakfast instead of their respective careers in order to try and give something a little better for their families. You will love Trinidad with its history and charm but the best part of the city is getting to stay with and be a small part of Jose & Kirenias family for your time there. Staying at Jose & Kirenia's is like finding a rare treasure. If you are blessed enough to be able to stay here you will leave with a beautiful memory that stays with you for the rest of your life. One more thing, we came here direct from the airport in Havana and Jose & Kirenia were able to arrange for a great private taxi to pick us up and bring us direct to Trinadad for an amazing price that is the same as the bus and half the time! Jose & Kirenia, if you read this; Thanks!!! God Bless!!! TQM!!!!
