Just read what the others have said before me and I totally agree with the wonderful comments this casa receives.
We were also sent to Casa Mer from Horacio (Casa Antigua).
We were 2 families with 3 children- 7 in total (twins aged 9 and a 15 years old boy).
Wilfredo ,his mum Mercedes and aunt made us feel very welcome in our 6 night stay in Havana.
Very clean rooms,clean bedding and towels can be requested daily if needed.We had 2 rooms with a bathroom between the rooms which was very convenient having the younger kids in a different room and our friends shared a room with their 15 yrs old son.They also had their own bathroom.
The breakfast was great.-fresh fruit and freshly squeezed fruit juice as well as toast,ham,eggs,tomatoes.
Wilfredo and Mercedes were very kind and they made a meat free breakfast for me as I was the only vegetarian from our large party after they noticed I didn't eat any of the ham and kept passing it to my children on the 1st morning.
The casa is in the neighborhood of Vedado which is one of the better neighborhoods in Havana.It;s not that close to the Old Town but we had no trouble getting a taxi to where we needed to go.
We felt very safe while in Havana and in Cuba in general and I feels confident in recommending Havana for couples of families with children.There is something for everyone.
Lastly thanks a lot again Wilfredo and Mercedes for your kindness,lots of advise and recommendations and for making us feel welcome in your home!!
The children still talk about the dog and the old ladies (Mercedes and her sister) that had so much joy when they saw the twins every morning and spoke in Spanish to them.
