El Capitan enjoys a truly stunning location directly overlooking the glittering Caribbean with nothing else around. A true oasis of graceful palms,peace and beauty. A superbly run Casa with beautiful rooms, private, spacious dining verandas, magnificent cuisine and above all the most friendly Yile and Maikel always doing their utmost to help. Spectacularly spotless. A blissfully tranquil Casa which we...

El Capitán is a fairly new, highly appointed, first class Casa in Cuba. It sits on property right on the ocean with luscious gardens leading down to the rocky shore. The verandas have comfortable chairs for reading and the courtyard has an arbor for shade, or chaise lounges where you can take in the sun. The hotel sits just outside...

My husband and I stumbled across this beautiful place by accident. We were staying at another B&B, down the road. While on a bike ride, we noticed the beautiful grounds, and went in to inquire. Yile and Maikel were incredible. They were extremely helpful to us, even though we were not guest! The place is stunning! Beautiful spacious rooms with...

I stumbled upon this Casa in desperation when a short term stay down the road left us disappointed. Just out of La Boca - a small fishing village on the outskirts of Trinidad, El Capitan is an architectural gem for lovers of mid century design with the service and charm of some of the best boutique hotels I have stayed...

If you are looking for a bit of quiet, peace, relaxation with stunning views this is it!

Room no. 2 - remember that! It's the perfect room in the perfect B&B (boutique hotel is a better term) on the south coast of Cuba. Outside your big, airy room is a big, airy terrace with rocking chairs and the table where you eat your meals and enjoy the magnificent sun set. Luxury at a fair price. Approx. 8...

We stayed for four nights in this beautiful casa. It is not directly in Trinidad, but a little outside in a small place called La Boca, so it is quiet. The room is small but very clean and comfortable. We had a sea view room. Breakfast and dinner can be taken outside in front of the room. The Food was...

There's not much to say. Perfect location directly at the ocean. It's off from Trinidad, but just a short cab drive. It's basically right between the awesome beaches at Ancon and Trinidad. The village itself ist rather boring, but the place is just awesome. Food was also very good and the room was very clean.
