“A beautiful typical Trinidad house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

A unique occasion to live in an old colonial style house of Trinidad. Not only is the house beautiful, with its huge entrance hall, its ancient furniture, its big patio and its terrace overlooking the town, but the room to stay in is large (we had 3 beds) and comfortable, the dinner (and breakfast) are excellent, and it is very close to Plaza Mayor and all places to visit in Trinidad. It is a little more expensive than most casas in Cuba (remaining however very reasonable : 35 € per night), but it is really worth it. And Matilde + Felix are great hosts too, good way to improve your Spanish !

Our second stay at Casa Tamargo, (the last time was Feb. 2011). The casa is located well, the hosts are honest and sincere; the food is great and Felix's drinks are awesome. It does help to speak some Spanish to fully appreciate these wonderful people. We stayed 5 nights; toured several areas and enjoyed our visit once again!

Felix and Mathilde welcomed us to their wonderful little corner of paradise. Not only is it well situated within Trinidad but the tranquil inner courtyard/garden is a fantastic retreat for relaxing or enjoying a pina colada made by Felix! The rooms are pristine clean and comfortable, hot shower, and really excellent food prepared lovingly by Mathilde. All in all I would highly recommend this casa as the best of all those we stayed at in Cuba.

We have just stayed 4 nights at Casa Tamargo and we were very happy with our stay. The owners and staff are great and look after you in any way they can. The meals and drinks offered are delicious and very filling and they are very accommodating if you wish to eat something different (for example, if you are a vegetarian).

They owners and staff speak little english, but one of the owners is taking english lessons to rectify that. (The owners speak just enough english for non spanish speaking guests to get by).

The location is very well positioned in the centre of town.

buen viaje!

Can't recommend too highly. We didn't like the Casa we were in, knocked on the door of Tamargo at random and were greeted by the rather amazing old man. They had a room the following night for two nights, and after a brilliant reference from the French couple there having breakfast we booked in.

Best decision. Best. You have to eat dinner there, it's great. the courtyard is beautiful. The beds are good.

And the lady who owns and runs it is superb.

Great location. Great place.

Friendly owner, clean and comfortable room (Fan / AC) and delicious food!!! Good value for money. Good Service such as daily room cleaning, drinks&snacks and laundry. It was the first time that we were satisfied with a casa particular in Cuba.

We had stayed in other casas and hotels in Cuba but Casa Tamargo is surly the best one.
Felix, the owner, is very friendly and makes good cocktails. His wife Matilde is also very friendly, cooks very well and has a great hospitality. The room we stayed is very clean and we were actually quite surprised that they cleaned the room every day. ( It was not like that in other casas...) We would stay here longer if we had more time!


タイトルどおりキューバで一番よかった宿です。
ここに来るまでに、ほかのカーサやホテルにも滞在しましたが
ここほど満足したところはありません。

部屋はとてもきれいで、ファン・シャワー・トイレ付でした。
毎日ルームクリーニングがあったのも驚きでした。

宿のご主人はとてもフレンドリーでカクテルも作ってくれます。
奥さんの料理はとっても美味しくて朝ごはんも夜ご飯もとても楽しみでした。

おすすめです。

Room Tip: Only two rooms, double or twin with same standard. Just call them in advance and make a reservation...

This is a lovely safe casa in the middle of Trinidad very close to the heart of the town so an easy walk home after a night out. The room was spacious, the bed incredibly comfortable, the patio and terrace really lovely and there is are washing sinks and a clothes line. The owners were very helpful and welcoming though spoke very little English which may be a problem for some travellers. I only had breakfast one day and didn't eat dinner there so can't comment on the food. It was more expensive than some casas in Trinidad but for the location, probably money well spent.
