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.

Lovely casa with excellent meals. The family who have this venue are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to help in any way they can. Delicious breakfasts on an outdoor patio is a small part of the charm. Lazaro and son in law Victor are a step above the rest.We have now stayed with them twice and if ever back there would gladly move in again!

My husband and I have just returned from our second stay at El Villareno. After our first wonderful visit a few years ago we were happy to find out that the casa was as clean and welcoming as our previous stay. Lazaro and all his family are considerate, friendly and helpful. The meals are plentiful and delicious. We truly feel this is a home away from home.

I spent four wonderful nights in this Hostal. The room was very clean and beautiful. The veranda is also well-equipped and finely decorated. I was so happy to wake up there and enjoy the breakfast every morning: The fresh orange juice and fruits, the cuban honey and the coffee were so tasty. I also tried once the dinner, we had lobsters with cuban food (rice with beans and a tasty sauce, platanos' chips, green salad...) ; it was quite delicious and very reasonably priced.
Last but not least, the family members are so nice, polite and obliging. They were very helpful every time I asked for information, I would recommend this hostel for every one who intends to go to Varadero.

This is a very clean, neat and agreeable place to stay when you go to the beautiful beach of Varadero. They have all the basic accomodations (AC for a warm tropical weather, nice restrooms, queen size bed..) and a nice terrace outside gently touched by the fresh sea breezes. If you want to taste a very homemade and typical food of Cuba, this is a very reccomendable place, you will be glad to try the unique taste of the food here at a reasonable price. All in all, you should get in contact with Lazaro if you are planning to some days at Varadero, he will give you all the info you need.
They are very respectful and warm and will be glad to serve you.
must go definetely...

I tried to make a reservation for our family to stay at El Villareno when we were in Varadero, but Lazaro's place was booked. However, we ended up corresponding, and our family decided to have dinner there anyway. We were blown away! The food was delicious, and the family could not have been more welcoming or hospitable to us. We all tried something different(lobster, chicken, shrimp, pork) and each dish was very good. Hopefully, some day we will be back to stay here and enjoy another meal. Thank you Lazaro, Betsy and family!

If you are looking for a luxurious vacation surrounded by the same type of people you see everyday, you can find that in Varadero. However if you are looking for a real Cuban experience, with the most hospitable people you will ever meet, who cook the best food you will find, and who will care more about your experience in Cuba than any hotel concierge, than this is the place you want to stay. It is very clean and very short walk to a great little straw hut bar on the beach.

Before traveling to Cuba I emailed with Lazaro, and he could not have been more helpful. He even helped me and my friends find a place to stay in Havana.

I was there on my first night in Cuba with friends, and on my last night in Cuba alone. On both occasions they could not have made me feel more welcome (we even went out dancing the last night!). Betsy (Lazaro's daughter) and Victor are young (late 20's) and both speak English incredibly well.

I have traveled to nearly 40 countries, and come in contact with many amazing people, but these are some of the best.

THANK YOU!!
-Alex Doyle

We were lucky enough to be directed to this casa in Varadero. It was in the town, away from the tourist hotels and very close to the beautiful beach. The room was excellent, the bathroom new and clean, and the meals that our host cooked were fantastic. We really enjoyed all the fresh fruit and the Cuban pancakes for breakfast. Exceptional value for money.

Hostal El Villareno and the family that runs it are extraordinary and we spent a memorable 24 hours there. We wished we could have stayed for longer.

We arrived in Varadero the night before our flight home looking for a room in a casa, expecting to find a resort town for package holiday deals. Instead.....

Hostal El Villareno is a beautiful, family-run casa, well-located in the village part of Varadero, a couple of minutes from the beach. (Varadero's 22km beach is, as the Cuban government billboards attest, "unforgettable").

It was great to meet Betsy, Lazaro's daughter who is an amazing woman. We hope to meet you again. Thank you for everything.

For anybody looking for details about the food and the room, they were simply extraordinary. The room we stayed in had been expertly renovated by the family and was extremely comfortable with beautiful details. It does not lack anything: the family have even included a hairdryer, adapter, place to store luggage etc. Do not miss the delicious home-cooked food. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner there and could not imagine better food.
