Hostal La Verde
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Cienfuegos is a wonderful peace city. If it's your first trip to Cuba, I diffidently suggest Tony at Hostal La Verde. Tony has great experience in Cuban tourism and speak easily English. He can help you to organize tours of your choice. If you need help in what so ever, Tony will help you as a friend.

I stayed 2 times in his Hostal and I plan to return back when I'll have a chance.

If you're from Canada, bring him some maple syrup, you will see how Cubans love it.

Thanks again Tony,

We stayed at Hostal La Verde in November 2013. Tony was very welcoming and we had some great chats about life in Cuba, his family and his professions. The area is quiet but you can walk to the town in about 20-25 minutes.
Tony picked us up in his Cadillac and the hospitality was wonderful! We would return here without reservation.
Thanks Tony. From Shereen and Norma! x

I recently returned from Cuba and I spent 3 days at Tony Castillo's Hostel la Verde and enjoyed it immensely
I was seeking an out of the box vacation and did not want a stereotype per-planned all-inclusive style holiday. I got what I asked for and much,much more.
Tony was very personable, fluent in English from his professor days and extremely knowledgeable regarding all facets of adventure,entertainment, travel arraignments , tours, restaurants from his home town of Cienfuegos to Havana, to Vero Daro and everything in between.
Diving and ocean was my primary focus and the diving exceed my expectations. . Rancho Luna, Caleta Buena and Guamijico( bay of pigs) being my primary dives. Some virgin diving and wrecks with so much coral the colorful fish had a hard time finding a home !
Baseball was another major interest and his Hostel is a short walk away from the stadium. The history and action is heart authentic and action packed. They have mastered the game. (no computer games here ! )
If you are seeking too see the authentic Cuba before the inevitable change begins, I would surly recommend hooking up with Tony Castillo and his lovely wife Cuqui .
Very affordable, excellent location to all, great food and an overall educational adventure packed time.. Sincerely, Jim Symington

We stayed here for 4 Nights, it's located in a quiet area of Cienfuegos, although you can easily reach the city center by foot of by bus at the corner.
The house is featured with all the comforts.
Tony, the owner, is a great man; it makes you feel at home and he will help you in anything you need. Ask him about any touristic information and he will explain you better than any guidebook.
Thanks again Tony.

A very pleasant and spacious room and bathroom in a large private Casita close to the seafront.
The host, Tony, is very knowledgeable and charming with excellent English - he is also a good cook.
A nice place to stay

We spent two nights at house of Tony and we were very satisfied.

The house is newly built. You can see how the modern Cuban houses look like. The house is clean, the rooms are quite big in contrast to other rooms we have visited in Cuba.

Tony is a very friendly and open minded guy. He took care of us very well. The first night he recommended a very good restaurant in the city, the second night he cook the dinner for us. He gave us good tips what we should visit in the city and its neigbourhood. His English is very good and you can discuss with him.

Tony was working as a manager in Varadero for a long time.Thanks to Tony our friends got a see-view room in Varadero even if they booked only ordinary room.

Tony gave us his phone number to call him whenever needed. He really takes care of his quests :).

I would definitely recommend this house.

I stayed here 3 nights. Tony, the owner, speaks great English and will do anything to make sure you have a great time.

The room was nice and clean. The food was really good. The fish I had here was the best I had in Cuba.

Although the Casa is not right in the town centre or the Punta Gorda area, it's more peaceful experience for that. I met other travellers who stayed in Punta Gorda and couldn't sleep because of the noise from the clubs.

Cienfuegos is worth visiting. It's a very hassle free, relaxed city and there's a nice beach at Rancho Luna.
