Luis and his family treated us like we were cousins from Europe on a family visit.
Simply fantastic. Food was good and their flexibility in allowing us to plan in total freedom was very much appreciated.
Thanks so much to them for an amazing stay

Very Warm welcome with Nice juice. Room big in size, also bathroom quite big, Nice, very clean and private. Hot water in shower. We had 2 beds of which one had not such a good matras, other one ok. Location a bit away from THE main road, but you get a quiet room for that. Parking of THE car for Free. Terrace on THE top of THE house but due to governement rules not possible to eat there. Very good diner and breakfast, THE lady of THE house made real paintings of THE food. Food was a lot ( fruit, soup, main course and dessert). Mojitos were very good as they prepared them how we like them. We arrived late in THE casa but they still managed to organise a horse-riding for THE next day for us. Dennis, THE host, was really open and honest. As we spoke limited spanish, Dennis spoke sufficiënt english to have a good conversation. As his email is mentioned wrong in Some travellers Books, we give here his correct email: cl1gw@frcuba.co.cu. We would go back!

We were picked up at the bus station by Denis' lovely wife and she was immediately very nice to us and gave us a very good welcome cocktail. We felt right at home and were glad to see that the casa was surrounded by amazing views of the mogotes.

The rooms were spatious and tidy with a good private bathroom and airconditioning.

The casa offered some great excursions and we went for a walk with guide Carlos which was a lot of fun. The environment is beautiful and we also visited a tobacco plantation where we smoked our first cigar.

The food was very good and plentiful, but too much for us so we felt bad that we couldn't finish everything. It was a feast meal for 5 persons and it was just the two of us :).

We loved the hospitality of the family and everybody tried to speak slowly so we could actually have simple conversations in our basic spanish. We really appreciated them being so nice to us, it was a great place to stay and we would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

Had great fun in this place chatting with Denis. He was among the most sociable Casa owners we came across during our vacation. Excellent English and a great sense of humour. In terms of activity, just mention it and Denis knows someone who can. If you speak Spanish then his mother and elderly great-aunts are always on hand too. The two rooms are comfortable and brightly furnished to put it kindly. But, hey, this is Latin America. You don't come here for beige!
A 10 minute walk into the centre of Vinales, but all the better for that.
We had a great three night stay here after which Denis organised a taxi to take us all the way to Trinidad.

We stayed her for 4 nights in early April found it to be perfect. Dennis and his family were warm, welcoming and generous. The room was nice and spotlessly clean. The food was delicious, especially the huge breakfast, which was easily the best breakfast of anywhere we stayed in Cuba! Really enjoyed staying here and would recommend it,

The location (just a bit off the main street) was ideal - quiet and just steps from the meeting place to start the horseback ride. Everything about it works so very well - from the easy booking via email to the rooms which are spotless and comfortable. The bathrooms are the best we had in all of Cuba, large and very hot water! But it all is outdone by Carmen and Beymi's cooking. WOW! Amazing breakfasts with such variety and special touches - and wonderful dinners (we tried just about everything) with beautiful presentation and absolutely marvelous flavors. The only thing that surpassed the food - the pina coladas! Have them "natural" or dump in as much rum as you like. The boys loved the mojitos as well. You could not be better taken care of anywhere in Cuba - just ask and you shall receive - as much info as you want. Loved Denis and his family - our Vinales family!

Room Tip: Both equally good with large fridge filled with bottled water and sodas if you like (charge was same...

We stayed in this wonderful Casa for 3 nights in mid March and I can honestly say that our time spent with Denis and his family was the best experience we had during our holiday in Cuba. From start to finish every detail was perfect. When I originally made the booking Denis sent me a really kind introduction email with a map, confirmation of arrival time and lots of other useful information. This is unusual from Casa's in Cuba and was a reassuring touch. When we arrived in Vinales Denis's wife was waiting ready to take us to the house, we instantly felt so welcomed by the whole family. Our room was a really good size and overall was really quiet, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed.

There were two things that really made our stay here special, firstly was the incredible food prepared by Denis's wife and mum. It was just perfect. Everything was prepared so lovingly with beautiful presentation and tasted superb. Breakfast was a huge arrangement with fresh fruit, eggs, ham, cheese, breads and a delicious selection of cakes and pastries. We had so much food it would see you through to dinner!! Dinner was also of epic proportions, every night you would start with a fresh fruit salad, next would be the best soups ever we had chicken noodle, yellow bean, and spiced butternut squash. Delicious!! Every morning you could choose what you wanted for main course, we had Lobster, chicken and fish. All cooked with so much flavour and was a real representation of true Cuban cooking, dishes that the family had been cooking and eating for years. Dessert was also fantastic, with creme caramel flan and chocolate mousse. All I can say is wow! If you stay here definitely eat at the Casa you will not regret it and would not find better food anywhere in Vinales!

The other amazing part of our stay was meeting Denis. He was our favourite person in all of Cuba. We had two nights staying up chatting with him and laughing together. His English is fantastic and he really helped me lots with improving my Spanish too. He is so funny and interesting and will do anything to make you stay with him and in Cuba the best he can. He arranged a walking tour of the tabacco fields and the next day one of his friends who was also really nice took us to all the sights and attractions in Vinales. He even arranged accommodation in Cienfuegos for us and called us later in our holiday to make sure that we were having a good time and were happy with where we staying. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I really feel that we made a good friend and were adopted by a lovely Cuban family.

Honestly I could not recommend this Casa enough. It was the perfect stay and we will have amazing lasting memories of our time at Casa Hostal Tres Caballeros When we go back to Cuba we will 100% go to visit Denis and his family. If you are planning a visit you can contact Denis on his direct email address which is: cl1gw@frcuba.co.cu or call him direct on 58188220.
