Villa Pitin y Juana
Ranked #198 of 206 Vinales B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 May 2014

In three weeks of travelling round Cuba this was the only place where we felt unwelcome and treated like a cash commodity. We had arranged to meet some friends in town before we checked in and therefore explained to the hosts that we wouldn't need food on day 1 but would eat there the next evening. The reaction was somewhere between shock, disbelief, annoyance and anger. They checked repeatedly if we were being serious and signalled that we'd be ill after a meal in town. (In fact we had a fantastic Italian meal, see our review of El Olivo). The next morning we dared turn down her unofficial tour guide in favour of the excellent tour booked throught the tourist information in town and that was it. We got the cold shoulder treatment from then on. The food on day 2 was ok but not amongst the best. We decided to shorten our stay and moved onto the lovely "La Autentica" for the third and final night. The upstairs room and bathroom were of a good standard but don't spoil your experience of the warm and friendly Cubans by staying here.

Room Tip: Don't go there but if you must, get an upstairs room.

I was so looking forward to Vinales and getting wonderful views. But we got to this casa and had the ground floor room, which has open vents to the kitchen, so you can hear the cooking/ chatting/ smell the food all the time. AND because this room is basically an island in the middle of the ground floor, you are surrounded by activity all the time and have little sense of privacy! So, I was pretty disappointed by the room. The food was OK, the breakfast the least good that we had in Cuba. The dinners, on the other hand, were great.

Room Tip: Do not stay here if you cannot get a terrace room

This is a beautiful and very well kept casa. The two story building is in a very good condition, tasteful furniture, nicely painted in lots of strong colors with a smart floor plan, so owners/family and guests are not in each other's way. We stayed in a very clean room (small bathroom included) on the 2nd floor with a private balcony and gorgeous views of the banana groves and the "mogotes", the green, oddly shaped mountains that are remnants from ancient times. One advantage of this casa is the location at the entrance of Vinales - even though you can walk everywhere from here we didn't get the noise of the town at all. The owners are very hospitable and friendly, cooking is fabulous (simple but delicious breakfast - I miss the fresh guava juice, and perfect dinner)! The great plus for us, arriving after several intense days of sightseeing in Havana, was that we didn't have to take care of anything. We really just wanted to relax and take part in activities in the great outdoors. We told our hosts what we were interested in (hiking, horseback riding...) and they put us in touch with a guide right away. We spent 4 fabulous days in Vinales and were really happy to have found this great casa.

Room Tip: Ask for the room on the 2nd floor that faces the backyard and the banana groves. Bring insect repell...

This was the only casa we stayed in in Cuba (hotels the rest of the time), so we don't have much to compare it with, but the lovely host Hilda really helped us out, she was extremely caring and helpful when we turned up from Havana ill, and when we recovered the lobster dinner was delicious! Vinales is a bucolic paradise, we only wish we had had longer to enjoy Hilda's hospitality.

Room Tip: The upstairs room with a terrace (the one facing the road) is best

The family here did a big sales push on guided tours and other extras. They also told us that we would be poisoned eating anywhere else in town. Amazingly, we survived.
Like other reviewers, we had also booked the upstairs room only to find it occupied when we arrived for the first night. We stayed that night in the warmth of Dona Hilda (next door), where we had our best meal in Vinales and had the pleasure of meeting Chi Chi, our most wonderful hostess. I recommend staying with her.
Our room was fine but we weren't considered after knocking back the guided extras. Be warned.
