Stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely enjoyed it. Edgar was magnificent and his cousin prepares the best chicken in the whole of Cuba! The views in the evening are just stunning and it is an easy walk to the village main street. Would definitely come back

My two sons and me stayed here for 2 nights. After two days we were all sad to leave this peaceful place where there were a great hospitality of Edgar. He made us feel at home.

This Casa has a beautiful setting while being close to town but what we fell in love with was the family that runs it. We were there for just 2 days but Edgar and his dad were so much fun to hang out with. They know the area very well. Breakfast was wonderful and fresh. Rent a scooter in town... More

This is an excellent Casa run by the wonderful Marta and her very helpful (and English-speaking son, Edgar), which unarguably has the best views in Vinales. The food is plentiful and always delicious, the option for eating in the evening too should not be overlooked. Thank you very much Marta and Edgar for taking such good care of us. We... More

This is the best place you can stay at while in Vinales. It is located at the end of a street in a beautiful garden full of fruits and flowers. Breakfast is served at the back of the house so you can enjoy beautiful views while eating freshly made bread, marmalade, yummy juices or many more of Marta's specialties. Marta... More

Make the phone call to reserve, it's so worth it. The property is amazing and the family very friendly. Marta greeted us and offered us pineapple juice. She chatted with us a bit and made us feel welcome, made sure she knew what we wanted to do in our time there. She arranged a tour for us almost right away... More

El Cafetal is on the edge of Vinales with views out over fields and towards the mogotes. It's a very peaceful place to stay but there is still a lot of village life going on with a footpath passing the edge of the garden. Our room (20 CUC a night) had a couple of single beds and an en-suite shower... More

“Both rooms are fine. But if, then ask for the room nearest to the view. The breakfast will also be at that side.”

“The room at the front is quieter, the side room gets a bit more noise from the kitchen, neighbours etc.”
