2/10 Poor

Avoid- place feels like a tourist trap!
Sad to say this was the worst place (out of 5) we stayed during our time in Cuba- it's listed as a casa particular (stay in a family guest house) but from the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like an inconvience, rather than guests and noone was ever onsite to help. We were overcharged for everything (breakfast, lunch, bottles of water were double the price for the area) so we ended up going to local bars and other casas instead. Felt like a real tourist trap! Would definitely recommend staying at other casas in the area, as Playa Larga is beautiful and the locals are really friendly generally!

Terrible Casa!
WE WOULD JOT RECOMMEND THIS CASA! By far the worst one we’ve stayed in. The owner doesn’t offer any customer service. Toilet didn’t work pretty much most of the time of our stay and wasn’t fixed. As is common in Cuba you cannot put toilet paper in the toilet - an open bin was provided which wasn’t emptied for our 3 day stay (everywhere else we stayed emptied them daily). Showers only produce drips of water - almost impossible to use or to wash hair. Front door mat provided as bath mat! Sink had no plug so couldn’t have a decent wash either. Sheets were torn, no where to hang anything except one hook on back of door. Electric sockets loose with n wall. Air con when it worked was VERY noisy - couldn’t possibly sleep with it on. Breakfast wasn’t great - very salty ham, a slice of cheese, one egg and small plate of fruit. Finally - a pet tortoise was being kept in a metal sink with just a brick and no food or water - very cruel! Very disappointed as all other casas that we’ve stayed in have been brilliant!

10/10 Exceptional

This was our absolute favorite casa during our trip around Cuba. The house is right by the water and the garden is so lush with green foliage from banana trees and palm trees. The room was clean and the view from the spacious balcony was lovely. The best of all, the owner was such a friendly helpful man. He helped us organize a day trip to good spots so we could make most out of the little time we had in Playa Larga (24 hours). We also had all our meals here. Everything was inexpensive. Highly recommend!

Casa situé près d’une plage peu propre Chambre bien mais absence d’un minimum de produit de toilette Beaucoup de services annoncés ne sont pas dispo Photo sur le site ne correspond pas à la réalité notamment canapé sur la terrasse qui est en réalité bon pour le décheterie, n’avons pas vu de hall avec tele, propriétaire peu polyglotte !!! Avons mangé du crabe sur place car aucun restaurant a proximité…le prix du repas nous semblait excessif Peu de renseignements pour des visites locales notamment le park Zapata à proximité dont le propriétaire ignorait l’endroit de la vente des billets d’entrée et leur tarif Attention au bar avec terrasse à proximité qui n’a pas de carte de boissons et qui annonce après consommation des prix dignes d’une capitale européenne…. Surtout a éviter Dommage… dés effort à faire pour être a la hauteur du tarif qui ne se justifie pas
