“Very nice stay”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The room was nice and clean, and the food was amazing.
We got lovely mojitos and pina coladas at the porch, which we would recommend.
We went on a lovely guided tour arranged for us by Villa Habano with the english speeking guide Ariel, with great knowledge of the valley and Cuban history.
The location was perfect, just a few minutes’ walk from the main square.

We stayed for two nights at 'El Habano'. Immediately upon arriving, the friendly and warm welcome of Yuneyka made us feel at home. The quiet location, with parking facility and at walking distance from the village, was exactly what we were looking for. The room was spacious enough and spotlessly clean. We got the necessary information to make our stay in Viñales worth while, and either Yuneika or her mom were permanently at hand should we need anything. The meals were excellent (fresh fish, langosta), reasonably priced and enough to feed two couples. Everything was done in a way that revealed the warm heart and genuine interest of the hosts. We can recommend this cas without any hesitation, and should we ever go back to Viñales, we would most certainly come back to 'El Habano'

I went to Cuba for 5 days, and had originally planned to stay 1 night in Villa el Habano. We finally decided to stay 2 nights, as we loved everything about the casa.
First of all, its location is great. Instead of being in the busy main street of Vinales, you are 5 minutes away (walking distance), and you feel like you're isolated and in a peaceful environment.
The house is very clean and extremely cosy. You have hot water, and the food is delicious! We had all of our breakfast there, a lunch, and one of our dinners too.
But what we loved the most about the house was the service. The family do everything in order to make you feel at home. They organized our whole stay with great outdoors activities. They took the time to answer all of our questions about Cuba, and we got to talk with them for hours.
All I can say is that these people are genuinely nice and helpful, and it truly was the highlight of our stay!

Room Tip: The pink room was charming.

We just spent 2 nights at Villa El Habano and can honestly say this was the best casa we stayed in during our two week trip through Cuba. Yurai, his wife and Yuneyka really put alot of effort into making your stay as pleasant as possible! The rooms are in excellent state, very clean, big enough and with a hygienic bathroom. The whole house and garden in fact are very neat and tidy! We ate breakfast and dinner at the Villa and didnt regret this decision at all! Contrary, we highly recommend eating there because the food is very delicious, lovingly presented and of enormous quantity with the best quality! Our hosts gave us a overview over the excursions and sights around Viñales and of the many we did the horseriding trip which we can recommend aswell! All in all it was a pleasure staying at Villa el Habano and we'd do it anytime again!

We had the most lovely and relaxing stay at this Villa. We were met off the bus even though we hadn't been in touch regarding our arrival time! All activities were organised for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Vinales with our guide Jesse. The food was plentiful and delicious! The cocktails were simply amazing! We can't recommend highly enough this wonderful place.

Villa El Habano is the best casa I have had in my time in Cuba! The location is good - it is where the town becomes farmland, but still only 800 meters from the city center. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and speek english, and they can help you with informations to plan your stay. The rooms are perfect, with everthing you need, and the food is good too. The best accomodation and the best service, that I have met in Cuba, and still the same price as other casas.
