We were disappointed as we approached the hostel because of our misplaced expectation that it was located right on the beach. But, as the five star rating indicates, our disappointment was short-lived. It is more like a small boutique hotel than a casa particulare. They have seven rooms in a couple of different buildings. Our room was a suite, including...

Wow, just wow. An amazing place to stay. The best rooms we have had in whole Cuba, superior to most hotels in quality, cleanness, equipment, basically in all aspect. Fantastic friendly staff, awesome food. Both the dinner and the breakfast have been amazing quality, fresh and rich. This place proves that several years of dedicated work will bring results even...

If you planning to visit Playa Giron in the Bay of Pigs, be sure to stay at Hostal Luis! The rooms are large, spotlessly clean, quiet, excellent AC and there is plenty of hot water for showers. The hostal is located at the main intersection of the small town, so it is fun to sit outside your room and watch...

We stayed at Hostal Luis for a couple of nights when we were visiting Cuba for the first time. I was impressed with the level of service and it sort of reminded me of being on a cruise with fresh flowers in the room, towels sculpted into the shape of swans, stocked refrigerator with sodas and beer, excellent homestyle meals...

My husband and I stayed in the 2nd story apartment next to the actual building of Hostal Luis. It was new, nicely decorated, with a beautiful bathroom. We had everything we needed-air conditioning, fan, refrigerator, safe and closet. We were amazed at how Luis has trained his staff-they anticipate your every need. We had all breakfasts and dinners at the...

We stayed 8 days and would have stayed longer if we hadn't had other parts of Cuba to visit. We paid a little more here than we did at other hostals, but it was well worth it! Our accommodation included a gorgeous bedroom with lots of storage space and an in-room safe and AC, an adjoining sitting area with armchairs,...

We enjoyed everything here. The staff was very congenial and fun to talk with. The food and drinks were quite good and the service was pleasant and prompt. Our rooms could not have been nicer. Only objection was the rooster making a lot of noise quite early in the morning. Strongly recommend the Salinas area of the Zapata park amazing...

Playa Giron was a complete surprise. It is not exactly on the ocean - the old Playa Giron Hotel sits between the village and the beach, so none of the Casa Particulars are on the ocean. You need to walk through the old Playa Giron Hotel to get to any beaches. The village is small, with lots of people walking,...

This definitely the best place to stay in Playa Giron. - great service, very friendly staff - good food, great drinks - clean rooms, well maintained - great help with organising local activities - not much to do in Playa Giron - beware

We stayed there 3 nights at the end of our trip. The quality of the service was the best we had encountered in Cuba. The waitress and the owners were really helpful, nice and kind. We had a problem to find a taxi driver who would take us to Las Salinas in Zapata swamp on the next day. We heard...
