Casa Hostal Idael & Dania
Reviewed February 6, 2014

we stayed here twice, our first and last night in cuba. idael met us at the airport, organized taxis both ways (and getting our two bike boxes into the taxis). the first time we stayed in a room in a place across the street from their house, which had a lovely private balcony. second time we stayed in the top floor of their house facing their backyard full of banana trees, that room was amazing! it was the most expensive casa we stayed in but not by much ($5 extra / night), and run very professionally, and they stored our bike boxes while we biked around the island.

A lovely home, with lovely hosts who accommodated us with our bikes. The house is very central, yet it is quiet and very nice managed. Compared to many casas, this place has a big room, with a big bathroom as well.

Room Tip: Great location with nice big rooms (red)

Great place, great people, good food and a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere!
Idael and Dania were always cheerful, smily and dedicated. The dining room is very much suited to feel disconnected from the urban life with its birds, the tropical atmosphere and the good meals.

just back from christmas week in Cuba 6 nights of which were in Matanzas at Idael and Dania's casa.all the excellent reviews are very true. the casa is very well situated about a 10 min walk along the seafront to the town centre (an authentic Cuban city,not too busy but with everything to offer in the way of eating places and clubs etc) in a friendly residential street. the casa itself is lovely, modern and clean with good bathrooms (hairdryer too), well furnished and comfortable bedrooms with a fridge that magically keeps restocking itself and a lovely garden of banana trees and rocking chairs scattered around the property.the outdoor dining area gives a tropical feeling to the delicious meals cooked by Dania with fresh produce, and in portions to satisfy even the biggest appetites - with a few caged parrots to talk to too! the weather was lovely and hot and so the aircon very much appreciated at night. Idael really is a top host - friendly and full of information to answer any questions and can take you on interesting tours (ours was in a Chevvy taxi, so Cuban!) or drop you off at places like Coral beach (great for snorkelling) or the Bellamar caves, which you can actually walk to as they're only 3kms up the road and is one of Cuba's mosy popular tourist spots (and surprisingly with a very cheap bar).
Whatever you need to buy Idael seems to have the supplier with the best prices - and the goods turn up on the breakfast table as you relax . he picked us up from the bus station and arranged for our transport back to havana airport, and we shared a fantastic traditional xmas dinner with the family and two other guests which ended up with dancing on the terrace (Idael, being a percussionist, always has the music on in the garden which adds to the Cuban experience). I've been to Cuba twice before and can honestly say this casa is the best I have ever stayed at. maybe not quite the cheapest but definately the best value. you get a lot more here for a little extra cost - well worth it. they are planning to add a pool soon too. we'll definately go back, so bye for now Idael and Dania, all the best, have a great 2014!
