Yoly y Obel: Cabana was excellent but situation within family compound made it not a tranquil place to sit out. Roof terrace was great with beautiful views but needed tidying up, new plants and chairs etc. Construction around and continuous washing machine. However very quiet at night and lovely family.
How was the food? : Good, Loly tried to get things for us but we missed fresh bread. Obels cooking is excellent.
How was the room? : We enjoyed the cabin with a very comfortable bed and good shower.
Other Comments : Enjoyed Vinales and countryside, plenty going on and good restaurants.
Obel was a nice hirer and a good cook. How was the food?: Excellent, plenty, varied.
How was the room? : Ok, the mattress was very slippery and the sheet sliped down all night long.
Other Comments : We loved to stay here.
Warm welcome: A lovely and spacious room with its own little sitting area outside. Well situated for Vinales.

Great Food and Hosts: We stayed in a wood cabin in the garden with a nice verandah and rocking chairs for relaxing outside. We had meals at the casa and they were excellent quality and very generous portions. The pina coladas were the best we had in our one month stay in Cuba. Obel & Yoli, the casa owners, were lovely people and were kind and helpful.

A sweet, warm family: This casa is run by a sweet, warm family. The location is on a small, quiet street with a great view of the Mogotes, but very close to the center of Vinales. The room is apart from the house, with a private bath. Wonderful!.

How was the food? : Exellent.
How was the room? : Nice and cosy.
Awesome stay in Casa La Cabana Obel y Yoly: We spent 2 nights at Obel & Yoli's and had an awesome time! Of course, the valley itself is beautiful but it was the two of them that made the stay a true cuban experience! The entire family is very friendly and polite. Obel and Yoli also always took a lot of time for us. Further both of them are fantastic chefs they prepared the best meals we had during our entire stay in Cuba... Make sure you don't miss Yoli's Mojitos. They are by far the best all around!!! The next time we're in Cuba, we'll definately visit them again!.
Good location: We spent a week in a great little log cabin in Obel and Yoli's backyard. Both were delightful and considerate hosts and provided us with some of our best and most plentiful meals during our 5 week stay in Cuba. The location is very close to the square ( when the short cut is open) and on the edge of the countryside as well with easy access to the mogotes and fields for walking and vistas from the mirador.
How was the food? : Very good!
How was the room? : Very quaint and airy.
Excellent casa: Lovely and spacious cabana in the backyard, with an amazing view from the rooftop of the familys house. The casa is located only 5 min. walk from the church square, right next to tobacco fields.
How was the food? : The best food we had in Cuba. The lobster was great and we had fish twice which we highly recommend, especially the grilled Pargo was amazing. They are very good at varying the dishes, even breakfast, so you dont get tired of eating the same thing. Even when we had to leave early in the morning, Yoli got up and made us a sandwich and juice for the long trip.
How was the room? : Nice clean, spacoius room with two large beds, refrigerator and aircon. It gets a bit noisy in the early hours with all the roosters, dogs and people but I guess thats how it is in a small village in Cuba. We learned to ignore it in the end.
Other Comments : This was the cheapest casa we stayed in, but by far the best. Obel and Yoli are great hosts.
3 wonderfull days in Casa Obel y Yoly: A little bit separate from town center - this Casa is particulary quiet and we recommend it
How was the food? : 3 absolutly perfect dinners, fish as well lobster for 4 when we were only 2
How was the room? : a separate bungalow very nice and confortable - we don't need anything else
Other Comments : We enjoyed our stay in this casa with Obel and Yoly who are very kind personns.
This was one of the best casa in Cuba, nise peopel and good room How was the food?: excelent
How was the room? : clean
Great stay in great location: The casa is really nice with a great view of the countryside and mogotes from the patio. It is also a quiet location. There is a also a table outside to have diner wich is in the shade. Nice family that really care for their guests.
How was the food? : Breakfast were excellent with a lot of food
How was the room? : Clean, confortable and well appointed. There was a TV and an area to hang clothes which most places don't have.
Other Comments : I would highly recommend anyone to stay there. The tour horse riding tour booked with Diosnel was great and he really looks after his horses well.
THE HOUSE IS CHARMING, THE OWNERS A RE GHREAT HOSTS. WE WERE TREATED A S APRT OF THE FAMILY How was the food?: VERY, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT.
How was the room? : VERY CLEAN AND CHARMING.
Other Comments : WE WILL BE R ETURNING TO THIS WONDERFUL HOUSE AS SOON AS WE HAVE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY.
A good casa with dishonest people: When we first arrived everything was excellent. We had cocktails and really nice food prepared by the woman. Lots of other guests had recommended their brother in law Diosnel to do tours in english which were a tad cheaper than the offical ones which resulted in our curiosity to book 3 tours with him aswell. The first tour around the valley with a horse carriage was good, unfortunately he was a very big disappointment after that as he didnt turn up the following days but sent his friend who doesnt speak a word of english and then his uncle who proceeded in getting us lost when we went up in the hills with him. During the week we stupidly decided to buy some cigars off of him (after he had told us how good and honest a person he was - he had very good stories going et al) which we shouldnt have done as they first of all were fake and secondly couldnt be smoked which the casa owners were well aware of. So all in all a good stay that ended in disappointment.
Management response from : Obel and Yoly, Owners
Obel y Yoly, Casa La Cabana, Vinales
Awesome views, family and food: La Cabana was our favourite casa in our vacation around Cuba. The location is amazing, right on the edge of town with amazing views of the surrounding mogotes. Obel and Yoli welcomed us to their casa particular with the humblest hospitality we'd seen thus far. The cabin that is available for rent is a separate space from the family's main house. The space offers a covered veranda for relaxing and reserved table for remarkable dinners. If you are wondering where to grab a bite in the small town don't stray from Obel's table and you will be delighted by his culinary feats. Ask for a guided tour and you also won't be disappointed. The area is as unforgettable as the casa particular.
Wonderful Stay at Casa La Cabana: We had a wonderful stay at Obel & Yoly's Casa, witnessing everyday Cuban family life, enjoying fantastic food (and Pina Coladas!) and relaxing in the nice little garden. We enjoyed the privacy that the little separate house gives; very comfortable and clean. We definitely warmly recommend it!
Yoli and Obel: We had such a wonderful time. We wanted to share our lives with a cuban family. Yoli and Obels family was the highlight of our trip. They welcomed us and made us feel important. I cannot say how much we enjoyed our stay... next year we want to stay longer.
How was the food? : We had the real Cuban food. A very good Chicken dish and Lobster the second night. Breakfast was delicious and we were so surprised because we excpected things to be different. This family was the best!
How was the room? : Our room was clean and comfortable. If you want to experience real life in Cuba then stay with Yoli and Obel.
Other Comments : Just a great family. Even the extended family made us feel welcome.
We highly recommend this casa for its cleanliness, hospitality and location. The owners, Obel and Yoli, are wonderful hosts and make you feel at home as does the rest of this great family who live close by at Casa Morejon. The family found us an excellent young guide, Miguel, to walk the valley with us. … How was the food?: Fantastic! Meals are served at your own table on the side porch of the cabin. At our request, Yoli prepared vegetarian dishes for us; each dinner for four days was completely different and featured five or six delicious dishes mostly based on vegetarian versions of traditional Cuban foods. We also really appreciated the large and varied fresh fruit plates and salads. For breakfast, there are fresh fruit juices, fruit, great coffee and anything else you would like such as bread, omelets, etc.
How was the room? : Excellent. The spacious clean room and private bathroom are in a beautiful wood cabin separate from the house.
Wonderful !: General review We stayed at two nights in OBEL and YOLY's CASA (La Cabana) thanks to Francisco (owner of the Villa Cristal to whom we had reserved but who did not have a place anymore and who suggested us reserving in la CABANA OBEL y YOLY). The hosts are acceuillants and very helpful, they looked to us of very well advice for our ballads, they are in charge of reserving us an excursion on horseback in the valley, it was magnificent!
How was the food? : Very good, Obel is a chef, he works in a restaurant and he prepare very good meal.
How was the room? : The room is clean, comfortable and big. There are two beds, a Refrigerator, a shower and toilet.
Best Place to stay in Vinales: General review A very nice, quiet and clean casa, with a nice terrasse. Obel and Yoli are extremely friendly and caring hosts. The food is very good, and the Pina Colade made by Yolis Fahter is best in all Cuba! ... They have 3 cute little girls, and you feel very warm welcomed by and in this family. Good luck Obel and Yoli ! Alex & Nicola.
Lovely casa in vinales !!: We spent 2 nights at Casa Obel y Yoli in september 2010. Great place to stay in Vinales, very nice hosts, available and discreet at same time. Independant house at the back of the garden, with private bathroom, TV ,refrigerator, and all facilities. Delicious food and cocktails by Obel, professional cooker. Good advices and possibility of reservations for visits in the valley. And beautiful view of the valley from the terrace. A place to be absolutely recommended.
Best casa particular in Cuba!: General review I travelled to Vinales with my boyfriend and ended up staying there for one more night because we loved it. The place is amazing but the best thing for us was our Casa. The cabin is beautiful and cozy, made us feel at home...
How was the food? : Obel is a chef so you can imagine the amazing food we tried which was for sure the best we tried in Cuba. His wife Yoly is also a great cook and served the most abundant meals we tried. Her beans and the lobster were amazing.
How was the room? : Room was big, had a fridge, air conditioned, clean bathroom, warm water, linens and great natural light.
Other Comments : I would definitely recommend this casa to anyone of my friends, Obel and Yoly and their beautiful family make you feel comfortable, well taken care of and home.
La Cabana!: General review it's a charming cottage in the backyard of this family.
How was the food? : the food was excellent. We loved the fish. the desserts were unique
How was the room? : lovely, warm, inspiringOther comments We were treated as membres of the family. Obel's food is wonderful and Jose's mojitos excellent!
Best place ever!: General review My friend and I were sooo happy to stay at this place ! Obel and Yoly are very warm people, they gave us a free cocktail when we arrived... And the view ! Oh my god ! The best thing in Vinales is the landscape and the location is perfect because half distance beetween the town center and the country (and the town center is definitly not interesting !) If your are looking for peacfull hollidays, go to La Cabana, it's perfect, really ! We've tried a lot of good casas across Cuba and this one was the best !!
How was the food? : Amazing food! The food is not crazy in Cuba but Yoli is such a great cooker !! A lot of food (you won't end your meal), really really good. And again, it's not usual in Cuba !
How was the room? : Really cosy and pretty. You feel like you are in the Little House on the Prairie ! So quiet, so nice !!
Other Comments : Go there, really, you won't regret it ! And maybe like us, you'll have a little tear when you're gone !
Cozy cabin and great Hosts!: Everything was lovely at Casa Obel y Yoli... the cabin or cabana we stayed in was very charming, clean, and stood individual from the families house. The room had two comfortable beds, a fridge, and a table with two chairs which was nice for playing cards. The outdoor table and chairs was also a great area for eating dinner and playing board games. There were amazing views of the valley from the house and also the private patio. Obel and Yoli were great hosts.. friendly, helpful, and welcoming. And delicious food. Thanks so much for the great times in Vinales!
Great Hosts and Cozy Home: My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Casa Obel y Yoli. They have nice little cabin in their back yard that stands alone from the main house. The cabin was very clean, the two beds were comfortable, and there was a nice little table and chair inside to read at or play cards. The bathroom was also very clean and modern. Just to the side of the house is a little patio where we would have breakfast and dinner. Obel is a great cook and I especially recommend having the lobster! Yoli and the entire family are very friendly and they made our stay in Vinales great. I highly recommend staying at Casa Obel y Yoli.
very kind people great dinner !
We spend 2 week at la Cabana of Obel and Yoli for a rock climbing trip in the Vinales area and we had a great time. They have a separate bungalow behind there house that got everything needed: 2 doubles bed, fridge always full of beverage charge at a resonable price, tv and privite bathroom, stellar clean... The owners treat us like real friend and provide us with everything needed including excellent breakfasts and dinners. Obel is a chef at one of the hotel in the area so they know how to cook! The food was tasteful and plentiful, specially the meat and fish on the grill. Highly recommended accommodation!!!
