Villa Colonial Frank and Arelys
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We stayed 2 nights at Frank and Arelys Casa colonial in March and it is one of our best memories of our trip. The house is beautiful and the room was very spacious, with a private bathroom. We stayed for dinner at night and the food was really excellent. Frank was also so kind to give us all information needed to visit the region and the beautiful Cayo Santa Maria. Remedios is a very nice small city, off the touristic routes and is definitely worth it, above all if you stay at Casa Colonial because meeting Frank and his family was a real delight. Frank kept his sense of humor and kindness even in embarrassing situations...I wont say more ;-) but you can be sure to be really well treated and welcomed at Casa Colonial. We will definitely come back!

We spent 3 wonderful nights at Villa Colonial Frank y Arelys. Frank is a great host, giving lots of useful information and making feel people at home. The casa is very well organised and the food is delicious ! Also Arelys and the lady in the kitchen are very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and the trips with taxi driver René. We wish Frank and Arelys a lot of success !

At first, Remedios was not on our route, but we totally don't regret going there and spending two great days there! Frank is a wonderful host- friendly, speaks good english, recomended us a good tour to the natural pools, organised delicious meals and even stayed up late with us to chat about Cuba and his life :) it was a lovely experience! And I should mention the rooftop patio with a great view over the town... Thank you!

My girlfriend and I stayed with Frank for 2 nights a few weeks ago - we would have extended if our trip wasn't ending! Frank is very friendly, knowledgeable, funny and professional. The casa is in a central, quiet location. It is beautifully maintained with a panoramic terrace. Plenty of space and privacy - the whole family is quiet and respectful. The food and drinks were always well-prepared and delicious. Frank was eager to help with anything we needed. His English is very strong. Exceptional hospitality and warmth, I am planning to return to see Las Parrandas and reconnect with Frank again. I really miss this place, and Remedios is a wonderful home base to explore more of the country.

We didn`t stay at this casa as it was already full but Frank, the host, was wonderful in arranging our stay at another excellent casa. He speaks excellent English and without any knowledge about us, reserved a room for us elsewhere, advised us about our trip from Trinidad to Remedios and had us arrive at his casa so we would not get lost. We later visited with him and his lovely wife and thought the casa looked wonderful: beautifully and pridefully restored in the colonial theme with a marvellous roof-top terrace and modern bathrooms. Frank takes pride in his home, his town and in looking after visitors: he is a true credit to his community and a shining example of wonderful Cuban hospitality. Thank you Frank - don`t stop being who you are!

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.
