While the family owning this place were earnest and sincere, their home was not fit for habitation. There was no hot water, roosters crowed in wee hours of the morning . We were awakened one night by squealing sow across the road and there were cockroaches in the bathroom, bedroom and on one occasion in one of the beds. It...

Basita and her family are truly generous, warm, friendly, and helpful hosts! We had a wonderful experience with them and enjoyed their company and hospitality. The casa is clean, Basita makes a great breakfast, and helps you arrange your excursions and taxis. The rooms are clean and spacious and the outdoor area is the back of the house is charming....

We stayed at Casa Sophia which is part of this small group of houses. We arrived very late at night to a warm and friendly welcome. Rooms clean and very comfortable, food excellent. Lovely garden with a large covered porch to sit in and relax from the sun. Town centre 5 minutes walk away.

Stayed at Casa Sophia, next to Casa Basita for two nights. Sophia was wonderfully friendly and welcoming, the rooms were clean and the breakfasts and dinner she prepared for us very good - the piña coladas are highly recommended! We found sitting on the rocking chairs on the porch watching the world go by very relaxing.

We actually stayed in Casa El Frita, just behind the main Villa Basita but part of the same complex owned by the same family. Our host Maikely was lovely, keen to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was simple but good - the fresh juices at breakfast were a highlight. We were surprised by how spacious and...

We took a contrary view to our an earlier review as our expectation, in what was an exceptionally busy tourist season for Cuba, was to anticipate some disruption to our booking but to expect a good standard of accommodation and service. Our tour operator explained that Casa Bastita was a family network of homestays and accordingly we were routed to...

Having been booked into this casa, by a reliable tour operator, but having seen several reviews, which mentioned overbooking, we were not at all surprised that we were directed to another casa, with no real explanation given! We believe that this new casa was run by a relative and was three quarters of a mile away, luckily we had kept...

We were booked in with Casa Basita but placed in Case El Frita behind the main house run by family members Maikelys y Alexei. We had their own house to ourselves which was simple and delightful. It is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the town centre. Maykelys did us a gorgeous feast of a meal for our first evening...
