“A fantastic place to relax and enjoy Vinales!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

My boyfriend and I just had a great vacation, travelling alone for almost a month. In November 2012, we went to Cuba for the first time and we were lucky enough to have three weeks to spend in this beautiful country. We had only one problem ~ we had booked only our first night upon arriving in Varadero and our last 4 nights before we were leaving, again in Varadero (at an all inclusive).

We were given the contact information for a casa in Havana and that worked out so well that we took their advice and booked Villa Liana y Lily for our stay in Vinales. We had planned to stay only two days, but we loved it so much we stayed a week!

Vinales is a lovely, friendly place and the casa is all that and more! Alina and her family are so kind and make you feel so welcome, if you're like us, you won't ever want to leave! Our private room with bath was wonderful and clean, breakfasts were delicious and we had some of the best dinners we had during our whole stay in the country. The rocking chairs on their patio were a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy the warm Cuban evenings, and cigars.

The house is in a great location, on the road into town and only blocks from "the main strip". It is quiet enough to enjoy the solitude and close enough to be convenient to stores, restaurants, banks, etc.

When we wanted to do something during the day (like a trip out to the beach or find a particular restaurant) Alina was more than willing to help. We even had our laundry done there before heading back to Havana! They are the most wonderful hosts and not only would we recommend this casa to anyone, we plan on returning ourselves! It can be a tad challenging if you speak absolutely no Spanish but trust us, it's worth investing in a "Spanish-your language" book!

The hosts were very lovely, though a bit hard to communicate if you like me dont speak spanish. The food was among the best we had in Cuba! The main problem was coacroaches, ants, mosquitos and other insects in the house, and a noisy AC, which detracted from the experience as a whole. We recommend it if your not afraid of bugs.

I loved this casa. We travelled with our six year old son and it was booked for us by our casa host in Havana who had herself stayed here and enjoyed it very much.
At the moment, there is one room with its own private sitting area, two large double beds and an impeccable bathroom. There is also a large shared courtyard, a vegetable garden - which is where your veggies are picked for dinner - and an eating area you can use during the day as well. Liana is building at least one more room. The location is just off the main road and while it's relatively quiet, nowhere in Vinales is really quiet, not when the roosters start crowing at 3 am. But it's worth it. Vinales is astoundingly beautiful - I had hesitated to go and now know it would have been a real shame to miss it.
Liana is a nurse and an important member of the community and has a lot of tips about things to do in the area; she also can arrange for private transfers to other parts of cuba and makes a mean mojito.
If you do go here, you will see the previous guests' comments in a series of books - read through them, there are great tips on excursions to take and avoid. What they all mention is the food that Liana and her mom make. And they are right. It's fantastic, in outrageous portions and prepared with 'amor,' care and professionalism. Ask for her recipes and you will see what I mean. Try the fresh fish in black sauce in particular. My son is a very picky eater and Liana had him eating just about everything on his plate. If we ever go back to Vinales, it would be wonderful to stay here again.

Room Tip: On the main strip, try Los Olivos for lunch, particularly their seafood soup or goat cheese salad. S...
