We stayed at Casa Ridel and Claribel for three nights at the beginning of February. We can confirm all that has been written by the previous writer and also that the meals that we ate were the best in Cuba and that's why we decided to eat in every night rather than go out. Ridel also arranged to take us to visit a tobacco farm in Pinar del Rio in a 1952 Chevy, which was quite an experience!
Very pleasant stay, nice clean room, and a quiet rooftop patio with fantastic views for afternoon naps / reading.
