Reviewed March 4, 2014

A group of 14 of us travelled to Cuba in November 2013, and Frank y Arelys looked after us in Cienfuegos. We weren't all able to stay in their guesthouse, but they were fantastic in helping us out to find other casa's nearby. They even organised a professional Spanish dancer to come to the casa and give us some lessons one afternoon!!

Colonial Casa in a central location, you can easily walk to the central square in Remedios. Rooms are nicely decorated with old funitures. Frank speaks good english and helps with any issue. The family prepares good dinner and breakfast.

Many thanks to the wonderful hosts!
We only stayed in casas particulares for almost 2 weeks. This casa was one of the best, if not the best.
Very colonial style with patio and terrace. very clean, friendly, safe!
Breakfast was very nice, but dinner was exceptional.
Remedios is a nice village with authentic cuban streetlife. People are used to tourists so everything is safe an relaxed.
Best beaches in vicinity.
Thanks
Laurens

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful colonial house in Remedios.
It is near the centre of Remedios and has a great roof terrace from where you can observe the street life of Remedios.
The food we ate here inclusive Christmas dinner was great!
Frank is also very helpful with booking tours and arranging taxi's.

Wow, what can I say about this place. Frank and his family were amazing. The rooms are the best I think we stayed in our whole trip. We left after only 1 day (the weather was crap) but wanted to stay longer just to relax in Frank's casa.

The food was amazing. Simply amazing. Don't eat out in Remedios, just eat at Frank's casa. I would definitely go back in a heart beat. Thank you so much Frank.

PS. Don't forget to go up on the roof. If I could have eaten up there I would have (windy and raining).

Room Tip: We enjoyed the 3rd room!

We stayed with Frank Y Arelys in Remedios for one night.Frank is ever so kind. Speaks fluent English. Room is lovely. Great privacy, but Frank is helpful. He gave us good tips how to travel to Trinidad and make sure that we decided beforehand which hostal we would choose there. Remedios is worth a visit, even for more days.
We were quite disappointed to vistit Cayo Santa Maria as we were looking for a quiet place to stay. The only thing they could offer you there were these all-inclusive resorts, which we do not particularly like. What a difference with Frank and Arelys. They have kept their family house in perfect condition with love for details. In the morning a copious breakfast with local fruits, served in their dining room with pleasant crockery (also colonial style!). They buy the fruit from local people who sell this from a wheel barrow going along their door.
The room was quiet with good A/C. Our rented car could stay in a shut off area in the neighbourhood. The car was well taken care off. In the morning it had been completely washed and vacuumed!A great service.
We could take cool drinks from their refrigerator. It felt like home! Such hospitality!
Really a recommendable place to stay and take as a centre for trips to Santa Clara and Coyo Santa Maria!

I can't believe we only stayed there one night, it was such a great place. Frank is an amazing host, always available to help you whatever you need. He speak English.
Do not hesitate to stay for dinner as the food is divine !
The rooms are spotless and the bathroom was huge ! I wish I had one like this at home.
Because if the weather we didn't enjoy the roof top as much as we would have liked to but it's nice to check on the neighborhood.
You definitely can't go wrong by picking up this casa. Highly recommend it.. I just want to go back!
