“Accommodation with very nice terrace”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stayed for two nights in this casa. Room was spacious and very nice. Rafael was very kind and helpful. It was only one casa during our 3700 km trip where we could use internet in the casa. Food was average but served on the very nice terrace with great view at Baracoa. Thank you Rafael.

Mr. Rafael was very very nice in e-mails. When I asked him about his room options, he told me he had three prices, ranging from 15 up to 30 CUC/night.

When I asked him about the differences between each room, he told us it was pure marketing and the 15 CUC room was just great, sending some pictures of it in the e-mail. So we booked this one. He said he was excited for having brazilian guests, it would be the first time for him. He even got to the point where he promised me a gift, a book about Che Guevara's life before Cuba. Told us that his dinner and breakfast were delicious, and that he would be pleased to show us the typical dish, etc etc.

Before leaving Brazil, we emailed every casa we had a reservation with, telling we were leaving, and we would honor our word and be there on the reservation day.

On arrival, Mrs. Adys showed up at the door, together with her son (which we didn't get to know the name). She was all smiles, and told us her son would come into the car to show us where to park. Driving some 60 meters in the same street, he shows us ANOTHER HOUSE and says we arrived. I ask him if we wouldn't be staying in his house, to which he replies VERY RUDELY: "This is the 15 CUC room my daddy told you guys about". We went up to see the room, and it was fine. But definitely it wasn't the room he showed us pictures of.

Our luck is that Rosi, the owner of the casa we stayed, was a wonderful person, and very happy to be our host. Her casa is even better placed in the city, and meals were great. She and her mother both treated us like her children, they were very warm and receptive all the time. Call them directly to avoid meeting Rafael's son: (53) 21 64-3364

This is truly a wonderful place.
As we got back to the Casa, Rafael was calling us "My children!!!" and treating us like family.
Staying at the casa was so much fun...

Very welcoming people, very nice place and very tasty food!

Room Tip: You should ask for the room upstairs, the one that is called- "La Suite du Presidential".

During our stay in Baracoa, Rafael and his family opened their house for us to stay for a few days. I can honestly, I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the house, the kind and attentative service by the family and staff, and particularly the location within Baracoa. While most casa particulares in Baracoa are far from the main destinations, Casa Particular Rafael y Adis is located only a block from the Catedral Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, which houses the wooden cross that Columbus set on the coast of Baracoa when he first landed on the island in 1492. Near this church is a beautifully restored cultural avenue with bars, clubs, art galleries, and coffee/chocolate shops.
The meals at Casa Rafael/Adis are definitely worth staying in for!
Overall, you will be more than satisfied with your stay at Casa Rafael/Adis.
I met a few German tourists staying in the room near us, and as i am fluent in German, i was able to affirm that they were greatly satisfied by their stay as well.

Adys and Rafael made my family feel so at home and comfortable in their beautiful home. The accomodations are upstairs in their beautiful spacious colonial home. There is a private terrace from which you can see the daily activities of simple town living and the beautiful ocean view and view of the town. Meals are delicious and plentiful and brought upstairs to the private patio upon which you can enjoy the shade, ocean breeze in a comfortable Addirondack chair, rocker or hammock. The new addition is a spacious gorgeously tiled room and spacious bathroom with the best shower ever!. Highly recommend this Casa for rest and relaxation and loving care from this beautiful family. Thank you Adys and Rafel for a wonderful stay, Diana

Because the casa was under construction during our stay, we didn't spend much of our daytime there. And why? There is so much to see and do in and around Baracoa - it's incredible. Nature during the day and streetlife complete with music, dancing and drinking at night. Adis y Rafael were busy yet accommodating. The construction is probably finished by now making it a real nice place to stay.

I stayed with a friend at Rafael´s house for two nights. They gave us a spacious room on the terrace. In the morning we were served a very complete breakfast on the terrace and at night we had delicious meals. I highly recommend this casa.
