Mario is the funniest, kindest and great-to-know Host in Trinidad. We not only got a room, but we also got to chat with a very interesting local Cuban, Mario and Damaris will provide every need you need and do it with a good mood and a kind attitude. Mario, un gran saludo de Hernan y Maria :-)

Room Tip: Get a room near the Terrace, it is Great!

I spent a week in June at Casa Mario Y Damaris while I was in Trinidad studying Spanish. Mario and Damaris are wonderful hosts and very special people. They make you feel totally at home in their beautiful casa. The house has a beautiful gardens and the pleasure of eating a magnificent (and slightly over the top) breakfast under the mango trees while hummingbirds float by is immense. Mario is a great cook and makes the best Lobster dinners in Trinidad. They are both a great source of information about Trinidad and can set up tours, spanish lessons, bicycles--almost anything. The casa is located away from the Tourist centre (Plaza Mayor) of Trinidad and near to the square that is the heart of the everyday life of Trinidad. I would strongly recommend a stay here if you are going to Trinidad.

Stayed for two nights in Casa Mario y Damaris and it was our first stop on our Cuban journey. It proved to be a great first stop and I recommend this casa highly. In terms of Cuban Casas it's definitely one of the good ones. Also excellent value for money when you eat and drink in this casa.

The location is great, the building itself is a nice casa with a roof terrace and outdoor eating which was very nice. The room we stayed in was ok, beds provided good enough sleep, bathroom small but functional. Overall the room did its job, only down side was the noisy air conditioning unit.

The real highlight of this casa is Mario (the owner), his personality and great cooking. His cooking was probably some of the best we had in Cuba.
Our Spanish was limited to what is contained in the back of a lonely planet guide book but this did not stop Mario engaging with us and we plenty of craic with him through broken English and Spanish.

Overall Casa Mario y Damaris is a great place, and our experience was made by Mario who is a great host and a great character.

Stay here and if you've a bit of Spanish to talk with Mario your stay will be even better.

Thank you very much for your comment, thanks for everything, it is true that we should do something to rave at least English but Mario and Damaris are too old to learn, but still have someone to help as an interpreter when necessary while Mario will remain a real character to serve them when you come

Great ambience and reception. It is like being at home. We leave the house crying a little bit. I would like to meet again Mario and Damaris at Trinidad. The breakfast was just wonderful and the rooms very clean. Their son, expert in tourism, prepared us very interesting and fun journeys. Great dinners too.
