Leo's casa particular is very lovely, wish we could stay longer. After many hours spent on bus traveling to Cienfuegos we finally arrived to family Leo. First impression was just ok, but after no more than few minutes spent with Mrs. Yeni, we felt great and very welcome there. She provided us with many useful informations about Cienfuegos, helped with... More

I stumbled upon this place purely by accident in need of one night's accommodation. What I found was highly unusual in these parts.....a wonderful woman named Yeni who speaks great English, is absolutely a professional and has the business mentality of a Canadian. She has a long term view and really cares. The house is a very quaint colonial affair... More

Yeni and Pito have a beautiful casa which has a very good location in Cienfuegos. Yeni was really helpful and was able to answer any queries I had. She also is a great cook- I tried her fish dish and it was lovely. Pito has a taxi and they kindly dropped me off at the bus station.

We only stayed here for one night but had great hosts in Yeni and Pito and were within walking distance of the centre of Cienfuegos. Yeni has excellent English and was very helpful with confirming our onward travel. The breakfast was a little smaller than what we were used to in other casas but we had to leave very early... More

Yeni and Pito Leo are very nice people. They will try to help in any way possible. Yeni even tried to improve my poor Spanish skills. And this woman knows how to cook. I recommend eating the lobster. It is absolutely delicious. And although it is not a Cuban side dish, eat her pasta. She knows how to make it... More
