“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. Juana met us at the bus stop. We were also welcomed by Juana's son-in-law, Pedro, who speaks English. He told us everything we needed to know, as Juana doesn't speak English and our Spanish is not great! Whole family very welcoming and made us feel at home. Nice and clean room with a/c and a very nice shower! Nice breakfasts and delicious dinners (the best 2 meals during our 2 week trip!)- Juana is a great cook! Pedro took us on a beautiful morning hike - Vinales is a must-see on any trip to Cuba!

We were supposed to spend 3 nights but we left after 1 night only. We were very dissapointed as we had read the beautiful reviews. I have seen them clean but there are still bugs going around everywhere, the bathrooms are outdated, no hot water and the bedsheets and towels are old and discoured. I did not feel comfortable at all and we went back to Havana looking for a decent hotel just after 1 night. We love Cuban food and found it bland and without choice. You have to eat what they have that they, even if you feel like something else...
We will not recommend and will not go back there!

We stayed for four nights not with Juana herself but with her brother Luis. They share the same backyard where they have built two little separate houses which serve es excellent cabins for their guests. We loved the privacy of our little house with our own bathroom, the terrace on the top with a breathtaking view over Vinales, and our two rocking chairs at the front door. Breakfast and dinner were both excellent, the pollo from the wood-burning oven is especially great but we also very much enjoyed our lobster dinner. Even though Luis doesn't really speak English and our Spanish is very basic too, we got along extremely well. He really made us feel at home, offering a coffee or Mojito at the right time, organizing bikes and a lovely horseriding expedition for us. And all that for an unbeatable price. There are hundreds of casas in Vinales, but Luis' and Juanas house is definitely at the very top!

We stayed 4 nights with my wife and had a great stay at Hostal Juana. The casa is very clean and comfortable. We recommend taking the walking tour of the valley offered by the casa. Also the food was amazing. Try the fish with yuca fruit or the lobster! The casa also offers bikes for rent.

Recently my trip to Viñales I stayed at the Hostal Juana, and I was very pleased with the care provided for at home.
Arriving at the bus stop Juana was waiting for mefor help me whit my luggage;the road was very quick since the house is very near the bus stop.
The room is large and perfect for me and my partner, a big bed and very spacious bathroom, and the food in the house is tasty and pleniful.
We also visited several cultural centers, the valley, the caves , the botanical garden ,and everything is very nice, and at night we went dancing to the park; I liked Viñales because is a charming town, and whith the attentions of Juana is the best place I visited in Cuba.
If you want to feel good in Viñales, visit the Hostal Juana.

I came to stay in October after reading the reviews on this site and all expectations were met. Juana is a great cook, her daughter and husband, both speak English, were very helpful and gave out a lot of information on what to do in the area. They also organised a guide to take me out into the surrounding area to visit the farms and cave for swimming. A great place to stay. Thank you for making my time so relaxing and enjoyable.

We stayed there for two nights in September 2013.
We arrived by bus from Havana, and they was waiting for us at the bus stop.
The owners was very nice and helpful, and the room was a good size and clean.
The breakfast was a little bit expensive, but good and was served us in their own kitchen at the time we wanted. (6 in the morning the day we left)
If you want a good place to stay in Vinales, this is the place :-)
