Me and my boyfriend have spent 4 nights in this house during our trip to Cuba and it is simply the best house you can find in Cuba. The house is located in La Boca, a small city less than 5 km from Trinidad, and it is directly on the ocean (less than 30 meters), it offers 4 rooms (the... More

There's not much to say. Perfect location directly at the ocean. It's off from Trinidad, but just a short cab drive. It's basically right between the awesome beaches at Ancon and Trinidad. The village itself ist rather boring, but the place is just awesome. Food was also very good and the room was very clean.

Oceanview, huge colonial bedrooms(double bed room with seaview) and friendly owners; this casa has it all! Most exclusive casa we had stayed during our trip and for European standards it would be at least a 4/5 star hotel! When you come to Trinidad, you should first stay in the city and afterwards go for this casa because you won't get... More

Lovely location overlooking the sea, just along the road to Ancon on the outskirts of La Boca. Friendly, helpful owners and staff, good breakfasts and generous well cooked dinners. If you want to take a taxi into Trinidad or down to Ancon then it can be a lottery picking one up in La Boca so ask Yile to sort one... More

Maikel and Yile (and the other staff) are so friendly. You can notice that positive mood at the moment as you meet them. The place is just close to the beach, which permits a delicious dinner during the sun set with a tasteful mojito prepared with love (a highlight). It's is one of the best place you can stay in...

I should start by saying that El Capitan is good for anywhere, not just Cuba. If it was just compared to Cuba it would need a new categorisation. We had a clean and comfortable room with excellent air conditioning, it also had a full size fridge. The veranda had a fantastic view over the sea and nearby hills and was... More

The absolute highlight of our 10 day Cuban road trip. After a long drive through the mountains we were greeted by Yile with iced cold drinks. The room was beautiful, 5 star quality looking out to the caribbean sea. Food is just amazing - homemade everything and delicious. We ended up never eating out in the evenings because the setting...
