“A lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Papo and Niulvys were so welcoming and couldn't have done more to make our three night stay in Vinales a happy one. Other reviews have described the quality and cleanliness of the room and bathroom and we agree.
One of the advantages of this casa is that it is set back away from the road with a large front garden and we found it a quiet and restful place with the added bonus that our hire car could be parked off the road.
Eating our breakfast outside surrounded by carefully tended orchids and all manner of other exotics was delightful - a delicious breakfast, especially the wonderful plate of fruit.
Niulvys cooked for us twice in the evening, good fish suppers, almost more than we could manage. Niulvys also spoke good English, which was rare in Cuba in our experience, and was able to help us understand the challenges of living and bringing up a family in modern day Cuba.
We are very happy to recommend this casa.

We stayed with Papo and Niulvys for three nights in January. These are exceptionally kind and generous people. The room was very clean and nice. The breakfasts were delicious. And one night Niulvys cooked us a great lobster dinner. They arranged very good guides and taxis for us on our outings and were overall the most perfect hosts I could imagine.

Casa Papo y Niulvys was the second casa we stayed in Cuba and was so lovely and authentic that I would definitely recommend to everyone. There are 2 rooms spotlessly clean, nice breakfast and lovely dinner upon request. Papo and Niulvys are both lovely people and you really have the feel you are part of the family while you are there. Nothing is a problem at the casa and they gave us great tips for Vinales valley, they also arranged our horse ridding the first day which was the best experience we had in Cuba. The location is great and the hospitality unforgettable. Thanks a lot again!!

We stayed with Papo and Niuvlys for two nights in November 2013, and it was a fabulous experience. The room was large, clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. The room also had a safe which was an added bonus. Papo and Niuvlys were very helpful with suggestions for restaurants (we wanted to try the local dish of puerco asado), and with finding out that the cadeca is open on Sunday mornings to exchange money. But the highlight has to be the breakfasts - served on the terrace under the orange trees, there was fresh fruit, freshly squeezed fruit juice, omelettes, toasted sandwiches, and bread spread with grated coconut - amazing!
Would not hesitate to recommend this Casa!

My third stay at Papo y Niulvys in less than 2 years and planning on 4th. As before, the accommodation was very comfortable and location very good. The family is working very hard to make this excellent casa even better. They are doing some work to expand the yard and the addition of a new rooftop terrace is coming along quite nicely, which will provide a great sitting area with a beautiful view of the Vinales Valley.
Papo and Niulvys are so very nice and friendly and will help you in any way they can to make your stay in Vinales enjoyable.
I would also like to mention that the standard of food is still excellent just as it was on my previous visits.
There are many reasons this Casa is número uno en Viñales, go and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed with Niuvlys and Papo in May 2013 for four nights. The rooms were very good, with aircon, and Niuvlys and her mother-in-law were wonderful cooks.

The casa was within walking distance of the centre on Viñales, so it was very well placed. Niuvlus was able to recommend some good restaurants to us. We were very tired when we arrived, so we spent most of the first couple of days chilling out on their veranda, reading and watching the world go by. We would thoroughly recommend this casa. Niulvyls has a great bubbly personality, but we did not feel that they ever intruded on our holiday, but they were there when we needed their help.

We stayed with Papo and Nuilvys for 2 nights at the end of July. Papo met us off the bus which saved us being bombarded by other people trying to persuade us to stay at their casa instead. The room was immaculate and spacious with aircon and an en suite bathroom. We enjoyed using the hammocks on the roof too! Nuilvys cooking was delicious, particularly the fish, and very good value. Breakfast was also plentiful with fresh fruit, bread, toasted sandwiches, eggs, juice and Cuban coffee. The casa is only a short walk from the centre of Vinales, and there was lots of advice on offer of things to do in the area. Nuilvys' command of English made communication easier. They were accommodating and let us leave our luggage and return for a shower/change before our mid afternoon departure, despite other guests arriving the same day.
A great couple of days and probably the best casa we stayed in during our trip.
