Mandy knows hospitality, good taste and beauty! La Villa Sonada is heaven right here on earth! The accomodations were immaculate and such atmosphere and ambiance! I had some of the best nights of sleep ever awaking rested and ready to go out and explore the beautiful colonial streets of Matanzas. The staff is very warm and friendly. Dining was delicious and Mandy is a top-notch source of information of making your Cuban travel experience enjoyable and memorable.

Room Tip: Any of La Villa Sonada's rooms are excellent. Just ask Mandy to see them or check out the pics...

The food there was amazing and Mandi is very accommodating to each individual. Love his dog as well! Not to mention his parrots:-) The diversity of people he serves made things interesting and I had the best of experiences, I would recommend his Casa in a heart beat!

A guest can not ask for better. The house is meticulously clean and quaintly charming. The service is designed for a King and Queen. You will feel pampered in so many ways and Mandy himself tries to accommodate any request. Mandy and staff are dedicated to making their visitors feel welcome and go above and beyond to make everyone's experience of Cuba a memorable one. They are great ambassadors for Cuba. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and delicious dinners on the Terrace.

Room Tip: Phone ahead for reservation. Cuba is busier than some would believe. No gym required as there is l...

Villa Sonada is a very nice place in Matanzas, near the airport in Varadero. We spent there only two nights but everything was perfect, the food was delicious and so different than in other casas particulares. Armando is nice and helpful.

Mandy the ever welcoming host was my first impression of La Villa Sonada. He will go out of his way to accommodate special requests and see that you are being well taken care of during your stay. It is a GREAT casa in an excellent location in Matanzas. The roof top garden provides an amazing view and is the ultimate location for dining as the plates of delicious and very well prepared food seem to just keep coming. Who said there isn't good food in Cuba? Mandy is very interested in his guests and wants to ensure that they have the best Cuban experience ever. I highly recommend casa La Villa Sonada as your accommodation choice in Matanzas. One thing for sure enjoy a roof top dining experience here!! You will love it!

I had the good fortune to learn about La Villa Sonada from a friend of mine in Toronto. I had a wonderful time staying there. Mandy and his staff are a friendly group and the place was very comfortable, the food very good and the terrace is really nice. When you go there, you will see a wonderful dog. Many thanks again, Mandy [as well as Miladros, Marla and Rolly] for a great time I had visiting. Kamal

Room Tip: Email to Mandy in advance to get a booking. He has 2 rooms - both are good.
