Selfa, Dianelys and Alejandro were the most hospitable, friendly and helpful hosts we have come across here in Cuba. Their place was beautiful and peaceful. The breakfast was huge, affordable and the best breakfast we had here in Cuba. The room was spacious, cool and well worth the money. They had great suggestions for food including El Toro. Other good places to eat locally were Don Alex, Cafe Quitrin and Palmares. Please stay here, you will not regret it!

I would give 3 stars for the friendliness. They did try to help me out too. It is a family home and near the main part of varadero however you can walk varadero in 40 minutes. It s clean. All you get is a small bar of soap. No WIFI access despite the property information( though it said it had) two channel on telly (doesnt work) The actual owner does not really speak english and you would be lucky to find the people who does
