Carlos and his family were incredibly welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The casa is brilliant with a wonderful spacious roof terrace to eat or lounge on. Their English is excellent, and Carlos was really helpful with directions, taxis, and any questions I had. His wife was fantastic, and I when I was ill at one point during my stay she looked after me, making me tea, getting me medicine and making me a special dinner. The location is fantastic and right on the doorstep of lots of sights. This was by far the best casa I stayed in in the whole of Cuba, and I massively recommend them!!

We had a great stay with Carlos! He is very knowledgeable and was able to help us with all of our questions and requests. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom. It was clean and orderly, and there was a lovely terrace where we had morning coffee. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here!

Carlo and his family were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They were quick to help us with recommendations for places to see and how best to get there. All our meals, breakfast and a dinner were fabulous. The location of their home is very centrally located. Easy walking access to many of the popular sites and music venues. The rooms are very cozy but clean but you will want to spend all your time on the roof top deck anyway. The deck has plenty seating and wonderful views of the city.

Carlos was incredibly welcoming and helpful during our stay in Santiago de Cuba. He has excellent English (as well as other languages) which made planning the rest of our Cuba trip easier. Food (breakfast and dinner) was delicious on the roof top. Position was perfect and a short walk to the main square. Thank you for a great stay

I did not stay at Carlos's house so I cannot comment on his casa. He accepted my request and then told me afterwards that he didn't have space in his place but Airbnb had already taken my money so I decided to risk it and hope that it worked out. I ended up staying in an unregistered house which is not legal. The place was fine and I was thankful to have somewhere to stay during busy carnaval week - but I do not recommend accepting when people offer to put you in a home that is not theirs because you can never know what it will be like, what kind of people you will be staying with, etc. The fact that it was not an official casa particular made me uncomfortable because I am not trying to break the law while I am in cuba!! It is also a safety concern - Airbnb is safe because there is accountability and people's identities are verified, reviews are available, etc. This would never happen in the US but it happens in Cuba because many people don't have access to Internet and cannot compete with the casa particular owners who are on the website. I will say that Cuba is a very safe country and in any other country I would have canceled the reservation upon hearing that I would not be staying with the person whose profile is attached the the listing. So, if this happens to you use your best judgement. Carlos is a really nice guy and knows a lot of people. I wish I could have stayed with him but it was a busy week and he was booked up. So dont let this review deter you from staying with Carlos in HIS home, I'm sure he is a great host

Carlos vous réservera un très bon accueil à votre arrivée et sa terrasse est un endroit très agréable pour se reposer, sa maison est très bien situé près des lieux de musiques tout en étant très calme.

Carlos fut un très bon hôte. Très réactif avant que j'arrive, donc très pratique pour organiser mon séjour! Carlos parle parfaitement anglais, ainsi que l'italien et un peu le français. Prenez le temps de discuter avec lui, une autre manière de voyager dans le Cuba d'aujourd'hui.
