We'd had a long day travelling and the moment we arrived, we were greeted with open arms and a fresh guava juice on the house. Mignelys and Juanito are brilliant hosts. Mignelys speaks good english and both were helpful when we wanted to explore the town. Being situated so close to the town centre and also providing areas to relax...

Great casa! Very clean and well organised in the centre of Vinales (5 minutes walk from the main square). Landlords and very friendly and speaking English. Very helpful regarding excursions, taxi, ... also proposing meals (breakfast and diner). Possibility to but drinks at the casa which make things easy. Loved this place! Thanks for welcoming us :)

Casa el Balcon is situated a couple of streets back from the main square in Vinales so is ideal for all activities and for the restaurants, bars and the market in Vinales. The casa was extremely clean and our room was modern with a luxurious bathroom (including a power shower). Mignalys was incredibly friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English, making...

If you expect to stay in a warm casa with friendly Cuban, you are gonna be disappointed. The casa is run by a married couple: the husband doesn't talk much, the wife just asks at what time you want to have breakfast or dinner. You are treated as a tourist to spill money. The casa is quite modern but the...

We really (really) suggest the El Balcon del Ermitano: the owners Jorge and Isolda are extremely nice and can help you with anything. The place is like a little palace compared to others in Vinales. The house is at the top of the road and from the large terrace, we had a great view of the Valley and the Mogotes....

Great shower, clean room, excellent service. They will help you book an array of services (bikes, horseback tour etc), we booked our own taxi collectivo to (beach) and Havana airport, but this is very straightforward in Vinales as everything is close by and if you can't speak Spanish the tourist information centre can speak very good English. Can't recommend the...

We enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable casa right in the center of Vinales. The landlady is extremely helpful and friendly and serves delicious breakfasts and dinners - in particular fresh lobster for dinner! Enjoy your dinner on the roof terrace with good views and even wifi access from the nearby square when you find the right corner.

The hosts here were so lovely and hardworking, and their home was immaculate! The breakfast and dinner we ate at their place was the best we had in cuba (the lobster was amazing), no joke! The hosts went above and beyond, helping us book tours and arrange transportation, even giving me an Alka-Seltzer when I was feeling sick! I loved...

We stayed here just one night but were perfectly happy. Mignelys speaks perfect English, and we chatted briefly with Juanito in Spanish. If you do not speak Spanish, Casa El Balcon is a very good option. We had a comfortable double room with a brand new bathroom, great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The room is a little...

El Balcon is in a perfect location in Viñales, one street back from the central square. The house is immaculate with three (maybe four?) guest bedrooms. I recommend the fantastic double room at the front of the house which opens out on to the spacious balcony. Watching Cuban street life from here was just fascinating - despite all the Transtur...
