Nice place to Stay: I spent three nights at this house. I have no words to describe the kindness, generosity and excellent treatment of the family and the house staff. For me, my family in Santiago de Cuba. The house was extremely confortable and clean. The breakfast is just delicious! Thank you Nivia and family.
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.
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.

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.
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.
