Just returned from a trip to Cuba. We loved the pool and bar that George had created. It was like our own private resort. George and Alicia were extremely warm and gracious hosts. We loved the opportunity to just relax and enjoy their casa. They also had another George staying a night and he was terrific when I had an upset stomach, making me ,mint tea.

Alicia breakfasts very very delicious and very generous. She also prepared us a paella one night and it was also very delicious.

They also were great about driving us into town and picking us up at the bus station. The rooms very clean and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it!

The hostel is in Punta Gorda, Cienfuegos- a lovely area a wee cycle taxi ride away from the town centre but it is a great place to stay. So pretty and quiet- a little bit like Cienfuegos itself.

Our room was a twin and roomy and pretty and clean. Great shower. Wee pool and a bar in the garden and loads of room to relax in the outside area.

There is a cockerel living close by so if you are a light sleeper then bring ear plugs!

The food in the casa is pretty good, breakfast is nice and dinner is generous. Jorge and Alycia are really nice and very welcoming.

Room tip: We saw the double rooms and they all looked rather 'cosy' but our twin was very roomy

My wife and I stayed at Jorge's place for 3 nights between the Christmas and New Years period. We really enjoyed it and will definitely return on our next trip to Cuba.

It is no surprise that his place is #1 on Trip Advisor. They deserve to be on top and work hard to make sure all their guests enjoy their stay. The house is very well set up with an excellent area to have breakfast/dinner, relax at the bar, enjoy a dip in the pool or lounge on one of the sun chairs. We stayed in the room at the front of the house and it was amazing. Had a fridge, AC, very comfortable beds, and a nice large bathroom. Everything was very clean.

Jorge is also a great host. He makes sure everyone enjoys their time in Cienfuegos and is very laid back and easy to talk to. He has also traveled quite a bit and has many interesting stories. Overall the environment at the house is excellent and very welcoming. Also, if you want your privacy he also respects that as well.

The house is located in Punta Gorda about 100m from the Club Cienfuegos which is a nice place to relax with a drink, swim in the pool, etc... To get to the centro of Cienfuegos, about 4km away, there is a driver who will take you at no extra charge. The same driver is also available for rides to the beach (Rancho Luna) for $7 which is less than any of the other taxi drivers.

I highly recommend this place!

Room tip: Ask for the room at the front of the house that faces the street.

Jorge Y Alicia's Casa is definitly the best place to stay at when visiting Cienfuegos. I have stayed there many times over a number of years and enjoyed every visit. It is not just the quality of the accomidation and your friendly hosts but it is the location. The Casa is walking distance to just about anything you want to see in Cienfuegos which is definitly one of the best locations in Cuba.
In my many visits to Cuba Jorge and Alicia have helped me with countles things, transport, visa extentions, accomidation in other towns, translation of documents, legal matters and just great advice. If you need to get something done weather it is in Cienfuegos, Havana or where ever Jorge knows someone who can get it done. Cuba is a noisy place, there is always music, dog barking and roosters crowing but at Jorge Y Alicia's it is very minamal compared to most places I have stayed. When I think about the places I have stayed befor I found this casa there is no comparison

Situated in the up-market area of Punta Gorda, just off Malecon and almost opposite the splendid Club Cienfuegos, la casa de Jorge y Alicia is probably the largest and most comfortable casa that we stayed in during our tour of Cuba. There are a number of rooms available here and ours was large, clean and very comfortable with an excellent en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, refrigerator and even a TV (not that you would want to watch much on Cuban TV!). Jorge and Alicia were wonderful hosts (Jorge speaks good English) and couldn't do enough for us. We parked our car in the secured front garden and when I asked if I could borrow the hosepipe to wash the dirt off the windows he would have none of it. Half an hour later, the gardener /handyman had washed the whole car sparkling clean! The casa is about 20 minutes stroll from the centre of Cienfuegos and there is a mini-market en route which is handy to pick up bottled water and snacks. Just across the road is the most amazing Club Cienfuegos, which we highly recommend as a place to eat at the 1st floor Restaurante Cafe. Just down the road is the equally amazing Palacio de Valle where the food is not so recommended, but the rooftop bar is a superb place to drink a Mojito or two and watch the sun go down. And if you want to carry on drinking, then Jorge has his own bar out in the courtyard where you can mix with the other guests and the drinks keep coming. All in all, this casa is highly recommended and we offer our grateful thanks to Jorge and Alicia for a wonderful stay.
