We stayed at Casa Maura at the beginning and end of a three-week trip in Cuba. It was easily the best Casa we stayed in.
Maura was very prompt when we first emailed her, confirming two days in her Casa at each end of our travels. She was not able to accommodate us for all four days we requested at the end of our trip, but took it upon herself to find nearby accommodations. Later we received an email to explain the secondary Casa was no longer available and she made an alternate suggestion. These concerns were above and beyond her responsibility, but are indicative of Maura’s caring personality.
Our room had comfortable twin beds, with good AC and was pristinely clean. The bathroom was a good size, looked relatively new, and had an excellent shower.
Maura’s breakfast was the best we experienced in Cuba, and was excellent value.
Maura is a very friendly lady, with a nice family. She enjoys meeting people, as well as seeing her guests find common interests, as we did one morning with a Chilean couple, and another with a UK couple. Maura gave us a number of excellent restaurant recommendations, as well has helped locate our daily destinations on our map.
We look forward to returning to Cuba in the near future and will definitely be hoping to book in with Casa Maura.
