“Beautiful place, beautiful people”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

This is a great casa in a beautiful town.
Papo and Niulvys are wonderful people, with great childeren, and great neighbors (Papo's mom and dad, who also run a B&B). They will treat you like family and help you with anything they can. They serve great meals, as they both are extremely good cooks. Papo's mojitos are really good too. They are fun people and very cheerful, very hard working, and they want your stay in Vinales to be a memorable one. The bedroom has two comfortable beds, large windows which open, a wall mounted fan if desired, or A/C if you rather. a nice washroom, and shower with plenty of hot water. the living room is shared with family, which is nice. The front balcony is a great place to sit in one of the two rockers, or lounge in the hammock, have a mojito , and snack and a light conversation with host, or just sit and do nothing if thats what you like.
This is a great place to stay when visiting the area
Thanks Papo y Niulvys for making our stay a very pleasant stay!!

I don't usually write reviews but I feel that I need to tell other travellers how amazing it is to stay at Papo y Nuilvys in Vinales. They are the most lovely family - so warm, generous and kind. I.e. we went on a hike and came back with really dirty shoes so left them outside as to not make a mess inside, when we returned outside Niulvys had cleaned our shoes for us. For no extra charge - just to be nice. Many more examples of things like this. They will really do everything they possibly can to help you and make you feel at home. Nuilvys is an excellent cook - she made the best food we had during our entire visit to Cuba and it was always presented so nicely. We felt like kings! The room is perfectly comfortable and clean with 2 double beds and a private bathroom. Central location - 1 minute walk to town center. Great experience exploring Vinales from Casa Papo y Nuilvys. Book in advance - only 1 room (Maybe another next door) but you really don't want to miss out on staying here.

This was our first casa after a hectic week in Havana. The casa is situated five minutes walking from the main street of Vinales. Niulvys and Papo made us feel very welcome. From day one guests are made "part of the family", but you will get as much privacy as you want. Don't bother going to a restaurant or paladar in the Village, Niulvys prepares and serves the best food we had in Cuba! The room is clean and comfortable and the private bathroom is very nice (by Cuban standards). The service is great, Niulvys and Papo will provide any help needed regarding activities in the Vinales valley or the rest of your trip. We planned on staying a couple of nights, but due to the great atmosphere we extended our stay to five nights. It was difficullt to say goodbye to this lovely Cuban family, we will never forget them.

We stayed in this excellent casa for 2 days in december 2011. Niulvys and Papo are very sympathic and friendly people who gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home at once.
The food was really great. For dinner we had fish on the first and chicken on the second day. Breakfast is highly recommended, too (fruits, cereals, eggs...).
The room is well furnished, and there is a private bathroom. We loved sitting in the small terrace in front of the house in relaxing rocking chairs with some delicious self made banana chips by our fabulous hosts.
Overall we felt very welcome in this casa and this lovely family!

So when you go to Vinales, the casa of Papo and Niulvys should be your first choice.

I was met off the Viazul bus from Havana by Papo and his father and we walked the quarter of a mile to the Papo and Niulvys casa, located on the street that runs parallel behind the main street of Vinales. Papo put my case on his bicycle and wheeled it along, saving me the trouble.

The casa is set back from the road and the room you stay in is at the front of the casa. It really is an excellent casa, centrally situated, air conditioned with two double beds, fully stocked refrigerator and a small hanging space above the refrigerator. It has a separate bathroom with sunken shower, toilet and wash hand basin. Not only is Niulvys a warm and very friendly hostess she is a wonderful cook and cooked me exactly what I asked for every evening.

This is one of the best casa particulares in Cuba that I have stayed in, with excellent food at very reasonable prices and I would have no hesitation in strongly recommend this casa to anyone. It certainly deserves it's position at the top of the list of casas in Vinales. I stayed there for three nights in early November 2011. If I ever return to Vinales I will definitely be rebooking this casa.

This casa and the hosts, Papo and Niulvys, lived up to the excellent reviews. This is a family operation, with Papo's parents living next door and Niulvys' sister down the street. The house is immaculate and the guest room is very comfortable, with excellent AC or window ventilation if you prefer fresh air. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch with one of Papo's mojitos before dinner. Niulvys is a wondeful person and an excellent cook, and both dinner and breakfast good values. The location is also excellent, on a quiet street near town, off the main drag. Beware of the casas on the main drag. Some friends moved after one night due to the street noise. We also visited Trinadad and Cienfregos, but enjoyed Vinales the most out of the three towns. One suggestion: Beware of locals offering to be your guide. If you decide to go on a guided walk through the park or on any of the trails, go on one of the walks organized by the museum or the park service.

This was a fantastic casa, and the perfect base for exploring Vinales.

When we arrived, Niulvys and Papa were so welcoming and friendly. They were very helpful and offered us advice on places to go around Vinales.

Our room was lovely and clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed relaxing and reading our books outside on the hammock or in the rocking chairs.

We ate both breakfast and dinner here every day of our stay. The food was delicious - Niulvys is a fantastic cook. We also really enjoyed our mojitos.
