Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Clean, peaceful Casa Particulare just a brief bus or taxi ride outside Habana proper - close enough to make day-trips easy but far enough for the city bustle to subside. Hosts are endlessly obliging, offering assistance with everything from arranging private transportation to fulfilling dining requests to offering laundry service. The owners work very hard to provide a top-notch experience, you can feel their pride of place permeating all their efforts.

Choose wisely! The place is comfortable located in a no-so safe community. Make sure you check in the dates you booked for or you will get charge for those days you were not "in". Villa Alamar is under severe surveillance that your host makes sure you know that every move of yours is under watch. Average to poor place is you are willing to sacrifice privacy and security.

This place is amazing, well maintained, safe, beautiful, relaxing and so much more. I love staying here. I have stayed other places in Cuba but this is the BEST so I come back each time. Fully stocked bar for a price so you don’t even need to leave if you don’t want to and breakfast is AMAZING. I love it. This was my 4th trip and is as exciting staying at Villa Alamar. The owners are great. My Spanish is poor but they know some English too so we talk in both languages :) and I love their warmth, patience and understanding.

From the very beginning of our stay we felt comfortable and safe. Tania and her husband offer superb hospitality! The property is in a quite neighborhood, safe and gated. They have security cameras on the premise. Tania makes an Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, and coffee! She goes the extra mile to wash/fold your laundry. We felt like family at the end of the trip! We are planning on going back here to stay next year! 5 Stars! Dania Ferro-Rac USA

They've done a fabulous job adding on to their house and making a lovely villa. The back yard is planted with tropical fruits and has tables where she serves lovely meals. We ordered the breakfast every day and it was quite a feast for $5US She even make my coffee loving husband an extra pot! Very sweet couple and very attentive to their guests needs. Several neighbors are taxi drivers, so she can arrange transportation to Havana for the day or to the beach. Both are about a 10 minute drive.

If you don't stay at Tania'a when visiting Havana, you are doing it wrong. It is a great family-friendly place. The location is good--it's in a nice, quiet, residential area that's only a 10-15 minute taxi ride from Old Havana and a 10 to 15 minute taxi ride to some fantastic beaches. Tania speaks pretty good English, and is absolutely wonderful. She is immensely helpful in arranging transport and giving you helpful tips, as long as you let her know what your plans are the night before. She saved us a lot of money that way, and we also got to eat some of the most delicious food on the trip thanks to her recommendations. She cares deeply about the people who stay here. She will always be available and will make sure you are treated well. The facilities themselves surprised me with how nice they were. I've stayed in a few third world countries before, and was expecting more of the same, so you can imagine my shock when Tania's place felt closer to a nice hotel than anything else. The bathrooms are immaculately clean, as are the rooms. Tania comes in each day to clean up and make everything look nice. She has a lovely courtyard with some birds and two sweet dogs, and a great rooftop balcony that's great at sunset. She and her husband Yuri also make some incredible food. For $5, she will give you more breakfast than you could possibly eat--fresh fruit, bread, eggs, meat, cheese, fruit juice, and delicious coffee. I also recommend eating dinner there once or twice, as the fish Yuri grills is amazing. Yuri also makes the best mojitos I had in Cuba (and I had quite a few at a lot of well known places around Havana). Overall, this was easily the best AirBnB I've ever stayed at. Tania will make you feel at home and will treat you like you are family. The location is great, and she will make your trip much better by helping arrange good but cheap transport and giving great tips. Absolutely cannot wait to come back and stay here.

Tania and Yuri have created a 5-Star experience just 15 minutes outside Havana. If you like great service, delicious food and an opportunity to mix with real Cubans, then this is the place to stay. The accommodation is top notch. Great comfortable beds, clean and modern bathrooms, some with a kitchen and some with balconeys. Every room has a TV if you wish to indulge and ample modern closet cabinetry with bathrobes and slippers. In old Havana I bumped into a couple that was complaining about the service at the accommodations of the Hotel Nacional de Cuba...you would never have to worry such things at Villar Alamar. Tania and her husband Yuri are always working to make sure you are most comfortable without being intrusive. Any questions you want asked they can help you with. Next, the food is amazing! I would look forward to the breakfasts every morning. Fruits, smoothies, eggs made to order, ham, cheeses, and they also accommodate special requests. Dinner was also a special gastronomic treat. Tania was also very helpful in obtaining a very inexpensive driver that we used to drive us into Havana and the beaches every day. The price could not be beat and we saved a fortune. If you need to make arrangements, Tania was great at reaching out to a Salsa dance school and making sure we got there in time for our lessons, All in all you would be hard pressed to find the level of service, the quality of the accommodation and food found at Villa Alamar. I have already bragged to my friends and I'm sure we will be back very soon.

I got in the family accidentally during my research trip in alamar. The owner of the house treated me like a guest. I walked around the whole house, It is pretty spacious inside, especially the nice back yard they have. We had a really nice conversation during my stay. It is worth your visit!

Villa Alamar is a great place to stay when visiting Cuba. The rooms are clean, well lit and the beds are comfortable. Also, the showers have plenty of hot water. Tania and Rudy are excellent hosts and the food they prepare is delicious and reasonably priced. The rooftop area provides a wonderful place to go and relax. I enjoyed my stay there very much and would highly recommend it.
