We loved staying with Tomas and Yolanda and the rest of the clan - they were very genuine and hospitable and to us, it was our best stay in Cuba because of this. The room is basic - two double beds, private bathroom with hot water shower - and it was very clean. It has it's own door from the courtyard and a separate side entrance to the house if you are coming and going early or late.
The family provided breakfast - simple but delicious - and the meal we ate there was tasty and it's highly recommended to dine in at least one night there.
Really staying in the casa's in Cuba is about the experience you have with the family and this was the right balance between friendliness and privacy, which was appreciated. Tomas and Yolanda seemed to really care if we were enjoying our time around their town too.
The location is good, just two blocks from the main street and we just went to the street when we arrived, told one person who were looking for and they called ahead and Tomas came to find us! That small town feel was definitely another highlight of being in Vinales!
