Hands down the best food I ate in Cuba; Lourdes is an incredible cook. My room was comfortable - air con, en suite, good shower - and the atmosphere in the casa was just lovely. Sitting on the stoop in a rocking chair as the sun set chatting with my lovely hosts, the experience couldn't have been better or more...

It was a great stay at the very welcoming and nice family. The rooms were clean and the dinner was amazing, the best dinner we had on our Cuba trip. Also the walk into the valley by foot, guided by the owners son, was a cool experience. Lovely family, great food, nice rooms, just a great stay!

Lourdes and Oreste are really friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts. Lourdes is a great cook so we enjoyed our dinners here in the evening. The room was comfortable and clean and the house is on a quiet street with great views. We enjoyed a pleasant walking tour with David their son.

Having arrived after a busy 3 nights we were extremely pleased to find our room with two double beds and extremely clean. Our hosts were wonderful and nothing was to much effort for our three night stay. Oreste shared with us his baseball newspaper clips and cut outs and makes fantastic crisps. Sadly we were unable to speak Spanish so...

This casa was a short walk from the main street of Vinales. The casa owners were nice and friendly. Breakfast was good but would not recommend dinner as we were charged the same price as we would expect to pay for having the best table in the best Vinales restaurant. Vinales is the best place to go for horse riding,...

Vinales is our stop on our trip in Cuba. Our luggage was delayed so we were pretty stressed when we arrived with no change of clothes and cleaning products. Orestes and Lourdes' friendly welcome definitely helped a lot. We were also greeted by their lovely dog who is absolutely adorable. She would come and welcome us every time we came...

We (3 friends) had a great time in the Casa of Lourdes and Orestes. The owner were totally friendly and are amazing cookers. We enjoyed great breakfast and dinner there, sometimes also lunch. Lourdes and Orestes organised everything for us: horse riding, hiking trip, transfers, dancing lessons,... The food was awesome, always fresh and different cuban specialities. The room was...

This casa was by far the best casa we stayed in in Cuba. Beautiful rooms newly refurbished all with their own bathrooms. The food was wonderful (and you can't often say that in Cuba) even though I am a vegetarian. The lovely owners helped us book onward travel and an absolutely fabulous horseriding trip around Vinales. Plus they were connected...

Stayed here as a family of four and had an absolutely lovely time. The two owners are very welcoming and wonderful hosts, they cooked some of the best food we came across in Cuba (even for me - a picky vegetarian!) and organised great tours in the surrounding area. The rooms (each comes with its own bathroom) are spacious, very...

Me and my husband stayed at Lourdes and Orestes place for 2 days, it was a very nice experience, the room was nice and clean, the food was awesome but their hospitality was overwhelming, they did everything they could, including their wonderful son David, to make us feel comfortable and welcome, I highly recommend this place if you have the...
