Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I've stayed at this location on five different trips to Trinidad and I always recommend it as the best place to stay in Cuba. Mila and Bury do a wonderful job making you feel welcome and attending to your needs. The food is amazing and plentiful, and is served on a gorgeous rooftop terrace. The coffee is amazing too. Can't say enough good things about this casa!

Truly a great place to stay in Trinidad. Milagros and Buri are attentive and cordial hosts. Buri is among the best cooks in Cuba and is an amazing dancer. And Milagros is vivacious and downright funny. They can arrange tours, transportation and other Casas anywhere on the island. Highly recommended.

This casita is well placed for the historical centre. The owners, Mila and Bury are the most wonderful hosts and couldn't be more friendly.
The house is spotlessly clean and the roof terrace is a delight for breakfast and supper with the most generous helpings of food, and watching the setting sun with a Mojito made by Bury.
Well worth the experience and wonderful value for money.

Just got back from an amazing trip to Cuba. A huge highlight was meeting and spending time with Mila and Bury at their Casa Milagrosa in Trinidad. Two good friends of mine were staying there, they consider Mila and Bury their Cuban parents, and I had the great luck to spend many evenings dining, sharing stories and lots of belly laughs with all of them in that cozy, beautiful home. You would be hard pressed to find better food anywhere in Trinidad or anywhere in Cuba in my opinion. The roofed (important as that Cuban sun is hot!), rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to spend some time planning an outing in the morning, having an afternoon mojito, beer, snack, or cigar, watching the sun set and the stars come out. Great view of the city, mountains and ocean; and hammocks for naps. The living room was a great spot for meeting neighbors, other travelers (all welcome in their house whether you're staying there or not), listening to new and old music, and impromptu salsa lessons from Mila and Bury. In the kitchen you can learn a little about cooking criollo cuisine and enjoy a good laugh and lesson in Spanish and Cuban humor from Mila. It's in a great, quiet and safe part of town that's an easy 10 minute walk to Plaza Mayor where the shopping, museums, dance halls, restaurants, bars, (and noise and tourists) are. Really nice to be out of the fray. A nice bank for changing money is right around the corner, as is an internet and call center in Plaza/parque Cespedes. Mila is great at setting up casas in the neighborhood for others traveling in your party (I stayed at a great house with a wonderful family - Hostal Valmaceda, which I also loved and highly recommend). If you want any of the following too, she can help with finding dance classes, tour guides, taxis, casas at your next destination, etc. They want you to feel at home and have a personal and memorable time in Trinidad. Whatever you ask for, they can help with - they don't push anything or anyone like I experienced elsewhere, which was really refreshing. So, yup there's some stairs to get to the third floor rooftop terrace but it's worth it, and stairs to each of the 2nd story rooms, but if you want to dine in the house (ground floor) - I'm sure that's not a problem and then you get to be with the family which was truly a great part of my time in Cuba. I intended to stay in Trinidad 5 days, but I stayed 8, in large part due to Mila and Bury and having found a home away from home with them. One other important thing is that they have a well-stocked bar (including margarita fixings which are hard to find in a bar anywhere in Cuba) and you can mix your own mojitos, or margaritas. The bedrooms (I only saw the front one) are pretty and comfortable and have perhaps some of the only down pillows in Trinidad. For things to do in/near the city that I enjoyed - walk all over around Plaza Mayor early in the morning, go up to Topes de Collante early in the morning to look at birds and swim in the waterfall (steep hike down and up), take the (tourist) train into the Valle de Los Ingenios and climb the Iznaga tower, sun, swim and snorkel at the playita (little beach near Boca - ask Mila and Bury how to get there - great alternative to Ancon unless you prefer the big sand stretch and hotel bar/restaurant), go hear Santa Palabra at Las Ruinas or the Canchacharra in the afternoon, dance to Ache Son on the stairs (Casa de Musica), dance at La Trova late night, eat dinner and hear trova music at the Botilla (weirdly themed but great restaurant) on Saturday evening, and shop at the women's coop of knitted and crocheted shawls, scarves and ponchos and bags that's on your left as you walk downhill from the stairs (Casa de Musica). .... I'll definitely be back both to Trinidad and Milagrosa.

The first time – in January 2010 – I wrote “we came as guests and went as friends”. Now my wife and I stayed at Casa Milagrosa again in January 2014 with our friends Mila and Bury - the third time. Meanwhile we were familiar with the place and its surroundings, the typical sound of the vivid Cuban street, the walking to Plaza Mayor and Casa-della-Trova for dancing, the daily ride by Coco-Taxi to Playa Ancon for swimming and sun bathing – all we could enjoy more spontaneously and intensively.
But the most important is the same and never changing quality of staying at the Casa and being with the people there. Sleeping in fine beds in our nice room with balcony; on the wonderful roof-terrace enjoying the excellent breakfast (with tropical fruits and juice we like so much) and – on demand – extraordinary dinner with the finest of mountain and sea which Cuban cuisine can provide.
Above all the heart-warming cordiality, humour, and readiness to help solving problems of daily life only local people can manage effectively and with a commitment only friends can offer.
Thank you, Mila and Bury, for the wonderful time we had with you in Trinidad.

Emergencies happen. We arrived back at Casa La Milagrosa from a late dinner, my travel partner streaming copious amounts of blood from above his eye. He had tripped and fallen hard on the sidewalk. The entire family gathered and every one did their best to clean his injuries. Mila, our hostess insisted that we go immediately to the International Clinic despite that it was now after midnight. She came with us. As far as I'm concerned that is going far and above the call of duty. It turned out that Mila had made a wise call allowing us to enjoy the rest of our vacation without having to return home for medical care.

Like so many have written from their own personal experience, Mila and Bury genuinely welcome you into their home and if you are lucky, into their hearts. It was our second Casa Particular so we weren't sure what to expect. Yes there are spiral staircases. No they did not prove a problem because there was always someone to bring our luggage up or down. We quite enjoyed the challenge actually!

From the outside the house fits in with the rest of the fascinating street. Once inside you are transported it's another world. These magical murals lead up to this amazing terrace where we were (wined) beered and dined. If you wanted to kick back and relax, there are two enticing hammocks just waiting to be filled. There is even a bell for the kitchen's attention! Piped in music and twinkling lights add to the ambiance.

As for our room it was huge and kept very clean with fresh linens and towels daily. We chose the street side room because of it's balcony as it was fascinating to watch what was going on in the neighbourhood. The fan and air-conditioning of course overcame any street noise, so we slept soundly on very comfortable mattresses. Mattresses in Cuba can leave a lot to be desired. We had our own private en suite with shower.

As for our host and chef Bury, he takes great pride in his culinary skills. The breakfasts offered everything from a variety of tropical fruits to eggs done however you wanted them. They were so generous with their portions that we didn't need lunch. We chose to dine twice on the terrace because Bury's cuisine was superb.

We stayed four nights and fell in love with Trinidad and its music. Usually we stay in four star and five star hotels. We could be in any country. In chosing a casa particular, you truly get to meet and feel the genuine warmth of very special Cubans like Mila and Bury. So yes, a house might be fancier, but you will be hard-pressed to find happier or more empathetic people as Mila and Bury.

Room Tip: The street room offers a slice of Cuban living from the balcony. Shouts of "bread" "...

Good Casa, nice hosts, we booked 3 nights, only stayed 2 nights. We just didn't experience the amazing vibe as reported on TA. Good terrace, windy though. Park car outside casa in the street. Steep staircases to get to room, and also to get to the roof.

Food: Large breakfasts, great coffee. We ate dinner here on 1 night - fish (just ok) chicken (good) with beans, rice, salad.

Rooms: All meals served on roof terrace (can be windy). 2 rooms, each with 2 double beds and private bathroom. The two rooms are joined via a small hallway, suits 2 couples traveling together. Each room has a fridge, which is fully stocked (just write what you take on the paper provided). Rooms have safes. One room had no running water in the basin but we managed; shower drain hole had the usual stink. The room at the rear has a large bathroom but smaller room, and vis versa. No TV. Quiet fans. The front room can be noisy, has a small balcony with 2 deck chairs, great for people watching.

Location: Only 15 mins walk to centre of Historico Area, makes for a good walk. Quiet street (except for the 'pan' (bread)man in the morning).

Activities: Must go to Playa Ancon beach, hire sun lounge and shade for 1 cuc per pax, has a bar and food available, loos (cuc), good clean beach, park car in carpark 1 cuc. Spent the whole day here (10-4pm). If you don't want to pay for a beach spot, turn left at the beach sand entrance and find a tree. Many tours groups are dropped off here around 11/12pm. The Marina nearby, offers fishing trips, but try and organize 2 or 3 days before (we missed out on charter preference). Go and view boats and discuss with the guys here, they are friendly. Walk, walk and walk around Historico Area, especially early morning, then go back for lunch. A tourist market exists selling typical Cuban tourist goods and clothing (same same).

Trinidad Restaurants: Must try Restaurante San Jose (Maceo 38) very good, pasta, typical cuban fare, good menu and service was great, was busy around 9pm. Wakey Wakey Shakey Shakey, for a good casual snack.

Hints: Trinidad is loaded with tourists and tour groups, tours buses, but that's Trinidad. To stay away from this explore Trinidad when the tourists are not.....we managed to dodge the tourists. Touts are around, but just brush them off, kindly. Know where you are going and do your homework. We enjoyed Trinidad, it had a good vibe - but we didn't enjoy this Casa. Owners were helpful in arranging a good casa in Camaguey for us at short notice, when we decided to depart early (Ronaldo on General Gomez St, great food, offers 2 rooms, rooftop terrace).
