Ranked #19 of 202 Vinales B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 19, 2013

As with all the casa's we stayed in this was another gem, good location, clean good breakfast and the family where just so helpful. Yet again it was so good to beable to mix in the local community and with the pigs, goats and chickens. Listen out for the cockeral he can be a bit noisey but then you are in the countryside.

We enjoyed our night (together with another couple) at VEC. Clean rooms, good food, friendly family. Mario Junior is a dominoes guru! Excellent location two mins from main road but very quiet, apart from pesky cockerel - take ear plugs or drown him out with the fan/air con!

Room Tip: Three rooms, two on 1st floor lighter, but all good, spacious with two double beds.

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it! The room was nice and very clean. There are 2 rooms for rent and they share a lovely roof terrace from where you have a great view. Sitting in the rocking chairs with a glass of rum and a cigar, watching the sunset over the mountains was one of many unforgettable memories from this beautiful part of Cuba. We had breakfast and dinner at the house and the food was delicious. They also cooked vegetarian food for us on request, which is not that common in Cuba. Danay speaks excellent English and can help you organize different day trips if you like. Her husband Mario is a taxi driver so if you want to go somewhere by can that can be arranged.The whole family is very nice and welcoming, we immediately felt at home! I would definitely recommend this casa to anyone planning to go to Vinales! And yes, the roosters are merciless as some people have already mentioned... But that's part of the countryside, just bring a pair of ear plugs and you will be fine.

I spent three nights with Gustavo and Misleydis. They have a very lovely and clean casa. Gustavo and Misleydis did everything they could to make me feel at home and more, including asking my preference for type of food and the time which I liked to be served. Trinidad is a wonderful town, M & G provided a lot of information on the places to visit, restaurants, bars, museums, etc. In short, I found not only a great place to visit, but two good

Villa El Coral was splendid. I spent two nights there over New Years and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hosts are very friendly, and Danay is fully conversant in English and Spanish (I really appreciated the fact she went out of her way to help me improve my Spanish while I was there!). The house is very clean and has well-equipped bathrooms and a delightful patio with views of the Vinales valley. Additionally Danay can help organize whatever type of tour you want. I did a self-guided biking tour of the Vinales valley, which I also highly recommend.

Three things that could cause other travelers grief (but I was fine with):
1) Uncomfortable beds...sadly, this is par for the course in Cuba
2) Loud roosters in the morning (also very common even in Havana!)
3) No washcloths


That being said, this casa particular (not listed in LP, which is a shame) is a veritable gem. Definitely try the breakfasts and dinner -- by far some of the best meals that I had in Cuba! Enjoy your time there!

We have spent six nights in this wonderful casa. We really felt like members of the family. All the people are very friendly and warm hearted. Manuela will serve you the best cuban food, you can eat so much that you can hardly stand up after dinner. Danay speaks an excellent english and provide you with lots of good purposes and ideas. Mario will take you around in his car and show you the most wonderful areas in the western region of Cuba, and there are really lots of them.
the location of the Casa is wonderful, a quiet place only of few minutes away from the Plaza Central. Here can you feel the real cuban life. The rooms are quiet, clean and everything is working perfect.
If you ever want to stay some days in Vinales, choose the Villa El coral. the hospitality of these people will make you the stay unforgottable.
