Good Stay
Good place to stay. Only gripe was the internet not available in your room and not on 24/7. The router is turned off, which seemed odd. The hosts turns it on when requested. Perhaps it’s a security issue in Cuba.

The family was very friendly and welcoming. Ray and his daughter spoke excellent english. We were also able to change some money with Ray. The single distraction was the air conditioner did not work which led to an unpleasant night. Once we reported this to Ray in the morning he immediately called for help and the unit was being fixed as we left.

We stayed in Ileana and Rays Casa for 3 nights. Ileana was very welcoming and helped us to plan our activities. Our apartment was bigger than the usual rooms in Cuba. We had also a small kitchen just for us. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was not the most abundant we have tried, but it was tasty. The Casa is in the city center and we only needed 2 minute by feet to get to the beach. We recommend Casa Ileana and Ray :)

Wonderful people and a very nice apartment. The hosts are just amazing - Muchísimas gracias para todo Ileana and ray! Fue un placer conocerlos :)! During breakfast you'll see a little Kolibri flying around. The apartment is spacious and clean. The breakfast is delicious and the beach is very close. You also stay in a more traditional cuban area instead of the huge All-Inclusive buildings - which I prefer. I would recommend this Casa to everyone :)
