“Lovely Casa in a Lovely Town”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

We spent 2 nights at the Hostal Dona Hilda. It is an excellent Casa Particular in the lovely village of Vinales. They work closely with their neighbour to provide excellent accommodation. The lady of the house is very welcoming and an excellent cook. We had dinner bed and breakfast. All the Casa's in Vinales are on the main road which is noisy during the day but quite once all the day trippers have gone home. Our room was set back off the road with the ensuite bathroom in between so was very quite. The room had a patio to the back overlooking the back garden (where an amount of the food came from). One can walk into Vinales and is in a very good spot to explore the region.

Staying at Dona Hilda was a fantastic experience for us. We loved the privacy of having our own little cottage and having the most amazing dinner on the terrace every night. The whole family made every effort to please their guests and we felt very welcome and wished we could stay longer. The room is big, with a decent bathroom attached. The aircondition is very helpful as the nights can still stay very warm.
A lovely place with the best food in Cuba!

Reviewed November 1, 2008

The room at Casa Dona Hilda is actually across the courtyard from the main house, and the bedroom and en-suite are self-contained in their own building with a dining terrace. The room is kept spoptlessly clean by Chi-Chi, the indomitable hostess, and her daughter Mirabel.

There is a/c, but the gap under the door probably reduces its effectivess. As this casa is in Vinales town in the valley, beware of biting insects - we managed to kill a couple of mosquitos but I still woke up with a few more bites. Also, after the rain we had some uninvited visitors in our room - a few tiny frogs (2cm long) which jumped entertainingly from wall to floor.

The best thing about staying here was the food - a main meal for 8CUC each, which was very competitive and much tastier than what we had had in restaurants. Portions were also huge!

  • Liked — Delicious food
  • Disliked — A few too many bugs - but that's par for the course in Vinales
