This was one of my favourite casas on my trip. The hosts were incredibly hospitable and friendly. Michael went to extraordinary lengths to help me (thank you in particular for taking me to the resort to book the Tropicana show!). He speaks perfect English. His mother is very considerate, and made sure that I was taken care of (thank you...

A wonderful homestay that I can't recommend enough. Mercedes and her son Michael, who speaks Fluent English, were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The home is clean and spacious and Mercedes' food is definitely among the best we had in Cuba. Michael, who works for a local travel agency, kindly arranged excellent local tours to a tobacco plantation and nearby beach...

This was the first casa we stayed in and probably the most charming and authentic Cuban experience, as the others were more like small hotels. We managed to communicate well with Mercedes although her english is as good as our spanish! Mercedes is very hospitable and her food is wonderful. She always offered us a drink when we returned from...

Stayed here back in 2008 but my partner and I have such fond memories of staying with Mercedes and her son and daughter in law. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us a taste of Cuban family life. Great food and delicious drinks. Highly recommended.

Tia Mercedes, I miss your coffee and yummy chicken, frijoles and arroz. Your house is always so welcoming. We don't know when but we look forward to our best visit - and sitting in your kitchen enjoying your care and warmth. We're far away but you are not far from our thoughts.

We visited several casa particulares in different towns in Cuba. This casa was the one we appreciated most! It was´not the most exclusive but senora Mercedes and her son made our stay great. Her cooking is the best in Cuba! Calm and peaceful location. Free coffe and juice.

We stayed in the casa particular for 1 week and found it absolutely lovely. It is an exciting experience to Michael (the son) is a very entrepreneurial spirited guy that has a lot of recommendations, is well connected to all the People and was very helpful as a "travel agency" for all our activities.

Best stay of our holiday. Watched the world passing the road while sitting on the terrace with the best mojito made by Mercedes. The food Mercedes prepares is so delicious after all the dinners in the state owned restaurants. The best place to relax!!
