    Juan and his mom, Gladis, made me feel at home with their warmth, care, hospitability and helpfulness. When I was sick, they stayed up at night with me and cared for me until I felt better. That meant a lot to me. Apart from this, Grito is a super funny cotorra parrot I enjoyed making friends with. The visit to the cave and the family's tobacco farm was also very memorable.

    I loved staying at Villa las Arecas, everyone was extremely friendly & helpful. They had all the answers to my 101 questions about the activities that there were to do in Vinales, and were very helpful in terms of setting things up, as well as offering to check the weather to ensure that the days following would be good days for the activities that we wanted to do. The room was very clean, and had more than enough space for 4 people and our stuff. There was also a cute rooftop terrace to sit on.

    I usually spend a lot of time reading reviews about places and this one seemed like a good fit. Once I got there, I was welcomed by a very nice lady, and a mango juice. Since I speak Spanish I could talk to her freely but her son, who is also always around and is very nice, speaks English. She made very feel relaxed from the very beginning, showed me maps and telling me what I can do. Never she was pushy about doing some stuff. Breakfast was a treat and dinner delicious. Go, you will love it!

    Excellent staying and amazing breakfast. The whole family was available to help with suggestions and they arranged the bike hire for us. I was in the 4 beds dorm and it was clean and comfortable. Blankets are available as it was a bit chilly during the night. Toilet paper and soap are also available! The casa is just few minutes walking from the main road and there are few lovely restaurants and cafeterias on the same road. Nice porch where to relax on the rocking chairs!

    This villa was absolutely lovely to say the least. The room was very cosy, had all the necessities you could need, a lovely bathroom and to top it all off the house & host were just fantastic. Whenever we needed anything they were so helpful and were always there. They helped on several occasions with our tours and transport; always suggesting the most reasonable ones, which is sometimes a rarity for Cuba. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at this beautiful Villa should you be visiting Vinales.
