Great casa with good rooms and air conditioning. Breakfast was great every morning and we enjoyed a tasty dinner there one of the nights for 8 CUC each which is a bargain. Right off the main street in Vinales, and Aracelys is very helpful in organising taxi's and activities. Cant recommend enough. Simon y Yaiza.

Casa Aracelis y Papo in Vinales is great. Clean and good room and dito beds. Nice patio, nice ambiance, good location. Lovely people. Good and varied food. Great breakfast and the best lobster con salsa of Cuba!

We stayed 2 nights here and really enjoyed our stay. We were in one of the rooms in the backhouse, which was very private, clean, and comfortable. There was a nice patio and table to enjoy in back, as well as in front of the house. Aracelis and her daugther Liuba were great hosts. When we arrived, they explained the... More

We stayed in April 2016 and were hosted by Aracelys and her daughter. We had a nice room out the back that was tidy and quiet. Aracelys organised taxis and tours for us which was very helpful and her daughter cooked us a lovely dinner which was perfect. Breakfasts were lovely with different fruit juices each day. We spent some... More

Great meals - very delicious. Very friendly and warm environment - Aracelys made us feel very welcome. Great location - 2 minutes walk from main drag, but just enough outside for it to be quiet. I highly recommend the meals. We stayed in the portion in the back of the property - seemed to offer a bit more privacy.

I slept two nights here, on my visit in Vinales. Location is not very central, but this was not a problem because Vinales is a relatively small village. Owner was really helpful, although she spoke basic English. The room I received was clean, inside the main house, with a private bathroom, but it communicated with the kitchen through an opening...

I had a great stay at Villa Aracelys y Papo. I stayed for three nights and felt so relaxed and welcome. Aracelys and her daughter are lovely and you very feel very well looked after, and part of their extended family during your stay. I had dinner at the Casa one night and it was delicious. As were the breakfasts... More

I spent two pleasant nights in Vinales at this casa. The rooms are very clean, and mine had an en-suite bathroom. I really enjoyed the front patio with rocking chairs, especially in the evening. Aracelys and her whole family (her sister and her sister's family were visiting while I was there) were wonderful hosts; when the town market ran out... More

We, 5 good friends, stayed at the lovely "Villa Aracelys y Papo", a psychedelic hot-pink house on a quiet village back street for 3 days while in Vinales. The rooms are immaculately clean and appointed with everything a simple traveler needs, including access to a large refrigerator stocked with water, sodas and beer. Many of the rooms are situated around... More

Where shall I start here – the stay at Aracelys` casa particular was the best accommodation we had on Cuba. Aracelys is just an Angel, always smiling and up for a chat serving the best food we had on Cuba, not even our 5***** hotel on Cayo Largo could keep up with the fresh lobster which she served us.
