casa particular simplement parfait!

Tout simplement excellent! Un superbe jardin dans une cours intérieur. Des gens courtois et sympathiques. Pour souper, il est possible d'avoir du homard et croyez-moi ça vaut le coût! Nous avons été reçu comme dans un cinq étoile. La table dans le jardin avec de la musique d'ambiance, c'était digne d'un film! Tout simplement parfait!

Great, beautiful guesthouse

This casa is very close to the Parque Vidal, the main square in Santa Clara. The town is quite busy but depite its proximity this casa is extremely quiet. Carlos and Carmen were very obliging hosts, arranging for a taxi to be waiting for us at the bus station and ready with a cup of coffee on arrival.

The house is excellent with a lovely courtyard area where you can sit out and have your meals. Would recommend this - food is plentiful and very nice with a great choice offered. It worked out about 72 cuc per night for dinner (including wine) , bed and breakfast for two of us. Carlos is always around and would be willing to assist with just about anything. Rooms are very comfortable with best shower in Cuba. Would like to have taken this with us! Highly recommended.

Apart from the Che monument, I'd recommend a visit to the Fabrica de Tabacos Costantino Perez Carrodegua (tobacco factory) where you can get a fascinating tour of the cigar factory where the workers hand roll the products whilst a guy at the front of the room reads them the newspaper.

The best lodging in Cuba. Great food and charming hosts

Enchanting. We were only going to stay there 2 nights (due to limited interests in Santa Clara) but stayed for 3 as it was so lovely. Great food and charming hosts.
Beautiful room with a lovely private bathroom. Very quiet.
The food was great whatever you want whenever you want). Loved the banana crisps and the fresh juice in the morning.
Carlos was extremely helpful in arranging transport for our return to Havana as the bus was full. (which we would never have managed) Even for a stopover to visit che monument do not miss this casa- it's just lovely. Also the library in the square is definitely worth a visit (it's free)

The best casa particular we rented in Cuba

After spending some time in Cuba touring around the country, I can say without a doubt that Carmen and Carlos have the best Casa Particular that I have been to. From the moment we arrived, they went out of their way to make our holiday special, all while making it seem effortless. I know we were a lot of work - because we had issues with our Visa's and didn't have money for a few days. They completely trusted us and helped us through the entire frustrating process of wiring money...

The rooms were clean and quiet and relaxing.... the courtyard was beautiful and Carmen and Carlos were a pleasure to meet. You can tell that they put thought into everything. Dinners were far better at their casa than at the local restaurants and for a much more reasonable pricewith lovely atmosphere (candles and music). They even brought us to the airport together on our last day to see us off with hugs and kisses and I feel like we've made dear friends.Highly recommended. It completely made our trip to Cuba.

Excellent hostel in Santa Clara, Cuba

It was very good. Nice people, clean and in the center of St Clara. We only stayed for one night. We had a good breakfast,our dinner was in the so called best restaurant from St Clara. I forgot the name, it was in a small street, we asked Carlos to bring us there. It was really terrible, don't go there and eat at Carlos and Carmen!!!
Other services they offer: Carlos drove with my husband to a garage because we had to change oil. Very friendly!!

The best private house in Santa Clara. Incredibly helpful owners

Incredibly helpful owners who made us very welcome and went beyond the call of duty by far when one of us needed a hospital check-up. Carlos went with us, explained the situation and ensured we got good attention - even on a Sunday morning! Staying there was a complete oasis of peace and quiet in a busy city. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
