An excellent Cuba run service that goes the extra mile is well worth supporting.

Date of the Stay: 06/Jul/2016 Lee Man Wah, Hong Kong,
Highly recommended: "We are from Hong Kong and our Lee family stay in Santiago de Cuba for 5 days, Nivia Melendez and her family is extremely nice ,friendly and helpful, especially her mother, she is really lovely and funny elderly although she did not speak English but we can communicate in body language. We have a good time in this casa and this city. I will say if you want to know more Cuba and the life style, you need to come to Santiago de Cuba, you will see the big difference between here and Havana. I will say you will love this city more than Havana.
How was the food?: Tasty breakfast and dinner, especially the soup
How was the room?: This casa is over hundred years; there is lot of stories in this lovely casa that you can ask them. The room is clean with two comfortable beds, our bedroom on the top level of the house and looking down onto a beautiful courtyard. If you have good luck you will see sunset. The balcony with chairs also has very pleasant and relaxing times.
Other Comments: Good location, quiet and near everything, around 10-15mins easy walk to center. Around 20 mins walk to the bus and train station. Don’t worry to walk too much, that is not too far away. There are many Cuba life style things you can see. I stay in Cuba one month and travel around Cuba from west to east, I will say this is one of the best casa,i am highly recommended. By the way I want to say something about this B&B website. This is a good website and the staff is really helpful. I have stayed in Cuba a month, I booked all of the casa in this website, they are really helpful, not only about the casa information, also travel in Cuba information. They reply my email always very fast and gave me many useful information. So I also highly recommend this website. I hope you will do better and better."

Great Casa in the Heart of Santiago de Cuba: "This Casa is located in the heart of Santiago de Cuba - walking distance from many of the sights and attractions. An extended family welcome you into their home and look after you here.
How was the food?: After you've tasted Beatriz's traditional Cuban vegetarian food you will know how good it can be. Excellent quality of food prepared really, really well.
How was the room?: We loved our spacious bedroom on the top level of the house and looking down onto a beautiful courtyard. The balcony with chairs also made for some very pleasant and relaxing times. Newly renovated bathroom and fans and air-conditioning made for a very comfortable stay.
Other Comments: It is easy to see why this is such a popular Casa - it ticks all the boxes and many extras such as excursions and a laundry service are on offer as well. A trip up into the mountains with Pedro and Esteban was also all arranged with apparent ease by Beatriz. We loved our time in Santiago de Cuba."

Auch mal Ruhe in Santiago: "Wir waren im Zimmer im Obergeschoss mit schönem Balkon, Blick in den begrünten Innenhof und genossen die Ruhe nach dem Trubel in der Stadt.Es ist ein altes Haus mit Geschichte, in dem die Familie schon seit mehreren Generationen lebt. Man ist in kurzer Zeit im Zentrum.Kann sogar seine Wäsche waschen lassen für ein paar CUC.
How was the food?: Die Mahlzeiten waren sehr lecker und mit Abstand die üppigsten auf unserer ganzen Reise. Das Huhn in Salsa ist empfehlenswert und unbedingt die Suppen probieren!
How was the room?: Sehr sauber, herrliche Dusche.
Other Comments: Die Familie ist ausgesprochen herzlich und liebenswert. Beatriz, die Tochter, managt alles und ist sehr besorgt um ihre Gäste. Und das alles neben Arbeit und Kindern.Wir hatten nette Gespräche, bekamen gute Tipps und haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt."

First Casa in Cuba and off to a good start!: "A very welcoming family with 3 generations to meet. Great location, only 5 minutes walk from the centre.
How was the food?: We were treated to a good selection of fresh fruits, bread, eggs and fruit juice for breakfast.
How was the room?:We had the upstairs room reached by steep stairs at the back of the house but well worth the climb. We had a large room with a balcony, small en-suite with good shower and total privacy.
Other Comments: Nothing was too much trouble. They enlisted a friends help to take us to a baseball match. He helped us buy the tickets, made sure we got in okay and then collected us afterwards. Next day he drove us to a hotel so we could collect our hire car. Great introduction to a Casa experience."

"Die von drei Generationen bewohnte Casa Nivia, die in der Tat von Nivias Tochter Beatrix geführt wird, ist ein bezaubernder Ort, an dem man sich sehr gut aufgehoben führt. Es ist ein sehr schönes und stimmungsvolles Kolonialhaus, das der Familie seit über 100 Jahren gehört. Das oben gelegene Zimmer mir einem eigenen Balkon ist ein wunderbarer Rückzugsort nach dem Tag in der sehr lebendigen Stadt. Die ganze Familie sowie die beiden Damen, die den Besitzern aushelfen sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Küche von Beatrix und einer der Damen (deren Namen wir leider vergessen haben) war der kulinarische Gipfel unserer Kubareise - aufwendig vorbereitet, mit vielen regionaltypischen Beilagen, sehr abwechslungsreich, sehr leckeren Suppen, super gewürzt (worauf wir nach zweiwöchigen Kubaaufenthalt bereits aufgehört hatten zu hoffen) und einfach köstlich. Nach dem ersten Abendessen haben wir nicht gewagt woanders zu essen, um uns weitere Spezialitäten des Hauses nicht entgehen zu lassen. Nachdem man uns vom bewachten Parkplatz des Castillo del Morro das Ersatzrad aus dem Mietwagen geklaut hat (vorsicht alle Autofahrer!), war David, der Ehemann von Beatrix, sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns auf der Polizeistation stundenlang geduldig begleitet. Für die Gastgeberin selbst empfinden wir nur Bewunderung: neben ihrer Familie (2 kleine Kinder sowie pflegebedürftige Eltern), Ihrer Vollzeitbeschäftigung an der Uni mit gleichzeitiger Promotion widmet sie ihren Gästen viel Zeit und liebevolle Aufmerksamkeit - wir ziehen den Hut vor Dir! Vielen Dank für unvergessliche Tage in Eurem Haus!"

"Excelente casa colonial, muito bem localizada, perto das principais atrações. Todo pessoal extremamente atencioso, Sra. Nívea, a filha Beatriz, a delicadeza em pessoa, e seu esposo muito simpático, e as crianças muito queridas e educadas.
How was the food?: Café da manhã excelente. Demais refeições não fizemos na casa.
How was the room?: Quarto muito bom e espaçoso, com banheiro muito limpo.

Don't miss Casa Nivia! : "Beautiful colonial casa in the heart of Santiago, the casa is very close to the city centre, rooms are spacious clean and with air conditioner. The food in Casa Nivia is simply divine!!!! Lots of different dishes served every day. The dinner is served in the internal courtyard. The family of Casa Nivia are really lovely and friendly, and Nivia is just wonderful, ask for some recipes, she knows everything about Cuban food!."

Great casa particular: "Beautiful casa colonial in the centre of Santiago very well located, with very nice and sweet owners
How was the food?: very good
How was the room?: very clean, beautiful, big, very sunny."
Feb/2011 Hugh W. McKervill, Canada,
Warm hospitality: "This roomy colonial casa is located a few blocks from the main Cespedes square.
How was the food?: The food was excellent - much better than would be available in any of the restaurants - even in the big hotels...
How was the room?:The room was spacious and was equipped with air conditioning and fan. However, being at the front of the house there was a lot of noise from the street. The other room, upstairs and at the back of the house, would have been quieter. I was there for a week and at first the shower didn't have hot water, but when I mentioned it Roberto replaced the head and it was somewhat better.
Other Comments: Three generations live in this home and while the physical facilities were spartan and over worn compared with standards in my own country, the warmth, helpfulness and hospitality of the the people made the stay very pleasant. I felt that I had made friends."
