We stayed at Hostal Luis for a couple of nights when we were visiting Cuba for the first time. I was impressed with the level of service and it sort of reminded me of being on a cruise with fresh flowers in the room, towels sculpted into the shape of swans, stocked refrigerator with sodas and beer, excellent homestyle meals...

My husband and I stayed in the 2nd story apartment next to the actual building of Hostal Luis. It was new, nicely decorated, with a beautiful bathroom. We had everything we needed-air conditioning, fan, refrigerator, safe and closet. We were amazed at how Luis has trained his staff-they anticipate your every need. We had all breakfasts and dinners at the...

We stayed 8 days and would have stayed longer if we hadn't had other parts of Cuba to visit. We paid a little more here than we did at other hostals, but it was well worth it! Our accommodation included a gorgeous bedroom with lots of storage space and an in-room safe and AC, an adjoining sitting area with armchairs,...

We enjoyed everything here. The staff was very congenial and fun to talk with. The food and drinks were quite good and the service was pleasant and prompt. Our rooms could not have been nicer. Only objection was the rooster making a lot of noise quite early in the morning. Strongly recommend the Salinas area of the Zapata park amazing...

Playa Giron was a complete surprise. It is not exactly on the ocean - the old Playa Giron Hotel sits between the village and the beach, so none of the Casa Particulars are on the ocean. You need to walk through the old Playa Giron Hotel to get to any beaches. The village is small, with lots of people walking,...

We stayed there 3 nights at the end of our trip. The quality of the service was the best we had encountered in Cuba. The waitress and the owners were really helpful, nice and kind. We had a problem to find a taxi driver who would take us to Las Salinas in Zapata swamp on the next day. We heard...

The best place we stayed in Cuba! Food was delicious and was huge portions. The best lobster we've ever had! The staff were great, after dinner Luis went around and introduced himself to all the guests and asked how their stay was going. Eddy and Jimmy made our stay! They even taught us how to play dominos one night. They...

This Casa P is trying its best to be more a hotel than BB. The 35 CUC price was the average I found for Cuba and thought worth it. We perhaps got lucky as we had the front room so a veranda over looking the road, lounge with fridge and large double room. Front room did mean facing main road...

As many other TripAdvisor reviewers noted, this is more a small hotel than a casa (and in fact Luis was nowhere to be found during our stay), which didn't bother us. The room and bathroom are above your average casa in Cuba, but note that you are paying for it (35 CUC/night instead of 25 CUC/night usually), and they force...
