Cuba Adventure Trip

During our trip to Cuba, we visit The best Hostal in Remedios Villa Clara Cuba. It has been recognize by tripadvisor; two consecutive years the best destination . The general atmosphere and the hospitality initiatives are marvelous. We truly feeling like home. The food and facility is extraordinary clean. The personal is extremely dedicated to welcome and maintain the guest comfort all times. We really recommended Hostal Buen Viaje.

so far the best casa particular of our cuban trip! the owners are polite, professional, cultured, wonderful persons. the room was confortable, very clean (daily cleaning service), the house was charming, witha cosy court and the food really great!! at the moment of the checkout we had no cash and neither the bank nor the change could give us money because of a problem on the connection. the nearest minibank was at santa clara, 50 km from remedios, our next planned stop. lester and naty trusted us and gave us the address of a friend in santa clara for leaving the money without coming back to remedios. we could have escaped without paying, but they accepted the risk not to create an inconvenience to us. very nice of them

I had the pleasure to stay at Hostal Buenviaje for 3 days and enjoyed it to the utmost. I would have loved to stay longer and will certainly come back. In a nutshell: Great hosts, interesting talks, delicious meals, a unique athmosphere in a lovely colonial-style house with spacious and clean rooms, a fabulous patio and all this in nice, peaceful surroundings.

The hospitality and positive attitude of Lester and Naty is phenomenal; they are extremely warm and friendly and really made me feel at home. I love the same music and Lester was so kind to give me his CD of Descemer Bueno (now one of my favourites) as good bye present. Hearing 'Quisiera volver' on my alarm clock in the morning makes it easier to get up and reminds me that I would like to go back to Remedios.

Sitting on a rocking chair in their patio, writing postcards, listening to music, enjoying a drink, looking at the fountain or the abundant garden with the huge mango tree and watching an occasional hummingbird makes you feel close to heaven. Lester and Naty constantly endeavour to make their property even more attractive and worked on refurbishing the patio, but they always tried not to disturb the visitors.

Moreover, learning and dancing salsa with Lester's friend Daniel also was a lot of fun - thanks for organizing this in advance.

I can certainly recommend this Casa and also staying in Remedios for several days. ​Remedios is a very nice, authentic, small, quiet and peaceful Spanish colonial-style town where you can still experience the 'real' Cuba. It was a good change from Trinidad with its massive flood of tourists. Lester and Naty also kindly organized a taxi to go to the pristine beach of Cayo Las Brujas and back to Santa Clara.

We stayed here for 2 nights during our travel through Cuba. Lester and his wife receive you with a lot of attention, a small present and a welcome drink. You immediately feel at home, and can have very good conversations with Lester and Nati. The rooms are OK but miss some daylight. One night I had excellent fish, the best I had in Cuba, and every dinner ends with a digestif. Remedios itself is real Cuba with very little tourists, but very nice buildings. Lester helps you with finding a car parking to keep your car during night.

Remedios was a surprise, a small, very quiet colonial little town.
Here we stayed at Hostal buen Viaje. Lester and Naty were really welacoming, friendly and helpful – also Lester helped us to find a very cheap taxi to Varadero.
Really nice and relaxing the patio, and excellent the meals we had there.
Thanks to our special hosts. I strongly recommend their Casa.

This place is amazing. Lester and Nati are great hosts. The place had a few more upgrades (in the patio) since the last time I visited. We stayed for a week and had a great experience. Rooms are modern and very clean. It's fabulous!

This is a Spanish colonial-style town. People are friendly and very ordinary Cubans. It is certainly a good spot to see the Cuban lifestyle from inside out. I hope this helps fellow travellers.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness centre. Cayo Santa Maria beach is not far away.

We have really enjoyed our stay at this Hostal. Lester and Naty are very warm and friendly people and they really made us feel welcome. We were traveling with two young girls and this casa is excellent for families with children. The children can play in the garden and the rooms are big with good matresses and AC so the nights were also very comfortable. The house itself is beautiful and Remédios is a very nice town. The food is excellent and they even prepared food specifically for the children. Lester knows which beaches to visit and can tell you exacly were to go. We would love to go back next time we visit Cuba!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the Buen Viaje Hostel, located in the city of San Juan de los Remedios, we rent two double rooms with air conditioning, comfortable beds and private bath. The guest can also enjoy furnished rooms to the colonial style, a fresh terrace with comfortable rocking-chairs, an inner garden, and a great courtyard with fruit trees.It maintains until today the high props of the wood ceilings, the austerity in the decoration and the natural light, which is complement with the necessary comfort and the familiar atmosphere in a balance of history and contemporaneity. The house is very advisable for those who look for proximity to the Central Park of the town, 150 meters from the same one; but simultaneously stillness and spacing of the noise of the traffic, the nightlife of the square, and the passers-by.¡IMPORTANT! ¿HOW TO FIND THE HOSTEL?Coming from Caibarien take the main street into Remedios. Keep right because street divides itself. When you see the church ¡¡WATCH OUT!! You are on A. del Rio. Andrés del Rio street is a different street. It is the next parallel street in the back of the church.Coming from Santa Clara you will need to take around the central park and find in the back of the second church Andres del Rio street. ¡¡WATCH OUT!! The hostel is located in Andres del Rio, not in A. del Rio street. ... more   less
