We stayed with Rafael and Adis in july 2013. The rooms are very big and comfortable. You have to pass through the living room of the family to reach the rooms, but near the rooms you have a very nice terrace where you can sit and eat. On the top of the house is another terrace with a beautiful view on Baracoa. We sat there one evening when there was everywhere music for a national holiday when suddenly the electricity fell out. And it lasted several hours. That's also Cuba.
Rafael and Adis are very helpfull and the food is really nice. A neighbour at the opposite side of the road watches your car for 2 CUC per night.
Make sure you arrive at the correct address, do not follow guys on bikes "who can show you yhe way".
When you are in Baracoa do not forget to visit the Chocolate Museum. Outside Baracoa you can also visit a cacao plantation where you get information about cacao but also about coconuts, mango's etc. Very interesting.
