We really (really) suggest the El Balcon del Ermitano: the owners Jorge and Isolda are extremely nice and can help you with anything. The place is like a little palace compared to others in Vinales. The house is at the top of the road and from the large terrace, we had a great view of the Valley and the Mogotes....

Great shower, clean room, excellent service. They will help you book an array of services (bikes, horseback tour etc), we booked our own taxi collectivo to (beach) and Havana airport, but this is very straightforward in Vinales as everything is close by and if you can't speak Spanish the tourist information centre can speak very good English. Can't recommend the...

We enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable casa right in the center of Vinales. The landlady is extremely helpful and friendly and serves delicious breakfasts and dinners - in particular fresh lobster for dinner! Enjoy your dinner on the roof terrace with good views and even wifi access from the nearby square when you find the right corner.

The hosts here were so lovely and hardworking, and their home was immaculate! The breakfast and dinner we ate at their place was the best we had in cuba (the lobster was amazing), no joke! The hosts went above and beyond, helping us book tours and arrange transportation, even giving me an Alka-Seltzer when I was feeling sick! I loved...

We stayed here just one night but were perfectly happy. Mignelys speaks perfect English, and we chatted briefly with Juanito in Spanish. If you do not speak Spanish, Casa El Balcon is a very good option. We had a comfortable double room with a brand new bathroom, great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The room is a little...

El Balcon is in a perfect location in Viñales, one street back from the central square. The house is immaculate with three (maybe four?) guest bedrooms. I recommend the fantastic double room at the front of the house which opens out on to the spacious balcony. Watching Cuban street life from here was just fascinating - despite all the Transtur...

Mignelys and Juan are very friendly and helped us to organize our trips (walking tour and horse ride). Mignelys speaks English very well, which helped us a lot as our Spanish is not very good. The rooms are new and clean, we enjoyed the rooftop terrace and the balcony and breakfast was very tasty es well. We enjoyed our stay...

When juan picked me up at the viazul station, he was super helpful and kind. The place is impeccable, spotless, and the food is great. It comes with a beautiful terrace upstairs as well. Highly recommended. Would visit again.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and made our stay in Vinales very enjoyable. The casa itself was very comfortable and the location was perfect - one block off the main square. The owners helped arrange a horseback ride which I highly recommend!

We stayed here for several days and had an excellent time. Mignelys is efficiently friendly and helpful, booking excursions for us and giving us advice. The fruit and eggs breakfast is a great start to the day and dinner is good too. The place is modern and spotlessly clean. It might not fit the bill for you if you're looking...
