Silvia were very helpful and friendly, and organised us a horse riding trip. whole family were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. How was the food?: The food was lovely and such a nice variety - the coconut dish for pudding was delicious.
How was the room? : Great, very big and spacious with a lovely bathroom with lots of hot water and a great shower.
Other Comments : Very friendly and helpful hosts - would definitely stay here again.
Very nice casa!: Perfectly clean an spacious room (wie had the one separatly next to the up-roof terrace. Silvia and her whole family was very helpful in organising trips. The food there was much better compared to the food we got in two restaurants in Vinales.
How was the food? : Very good.
How was the room? : Absolutly clean and spacious!
FANTASTIC, HIGHLY RECOMMEND: We stayed at Casa Silvia for 2 nights during our honeymoon. It was everything and more. Very friendly family, the food - the best in Cuba- esp the Lobster and you wont go hungry! Family organised all our tours for us and although we didnt speak the language everything worked out well. Also we must mention the cocktails... they have a list outside there kitchen door ( a must for home) and are excellent and very strong )!
Great Casa, nice rooms: This casa was a great find. We needed two rooms because we were two families traveling together, so that limited our options within Vinales. Casa Silvia was our first choice and we are so pleased we were able to stay there. Very friendly owners, great cocktails and food, good advise about the area and what activities we could do.
How was the food? : The food was excellent. We had breakfast and dinner at the Casa both days we stayed there.
How was the room? : Was room was significantly bigger than the other, but both were clean and comfortable.
Other Comments : I would highly recommend this Casa to anyone. Great location to be able to explore the surroundings of the Vinales area, very hospitable owners and family, nice terrace for drinks in the evening.
Impeccable casa particular: My 3 days at Villa Silvia were great! I was welcomed at the Viazul bus station by a smiling Maritza who was always very joyful and helpful during all my staying there. I had my dinners at the house every night (excellent lobster and chuleta ). I recommend it! Also the breakfast was very nice with tasteful sweet tortillas, in addition to fruits, eggs and juice! Very clean room and perfectly functioning bathroom facilities. Silvia was also very helpful in organizing great salsa lessons for me and my day-trips (I had two very interesting trekking days in the area around). You will enjoy staying here! Thank you all and hope to see you soon again!
Very nice home! How was the food?: Delicious.
How was the room? : Clean, nicely furnished and ordered.
Other Comments : the hosts are friendly.
Friendly, homely and fun: From the moment we were met off the busy by one of Silvia's family, who had brought umbrella's to shelter us from the sudden downpour that had started, this was a fantastic stay. Although we did not speak much spanish and Silvia , not much English, this was not a problem. They helped organise a fantastic horse riding trek through the valley and made us feel utterly welcome.
How was the food? : Fantastic. Huge portions of lovely, home cooked food.
How was the room? : Very clean and comfortable.
How was the food? : Big effort but generally way too much salt. I avoided the evening meals because of this. The Cuban diet tends to have more salt then most countries.
How was the room? : We liked the room a lot. It's location to the house provides a degree of privacy.
Excellent Quality and Hospitality:
How was the food? : Very tasty and huge portions.
How was the room? : Very clean and brand new furniture.
Other Comments : En suite safe is available.
I LOVE Casa Villa Silvia: Spent a very pleasant stay in Vinales, at Casa Villa Silvia stayed two nights, my husband and I do not understand Spanish and English, but my mother still worked very hard to communicate with me, body language is far better than a thousand wordsI was v ery cordial. Casa Villa Silvia There are two rooms, the room is very clean and very adequate hot water, I accidentally room also provide a hairdryer makes me feel very intimate. After dinner walked casa's rooftop appreciate the night, very fortunate in my life I saw the first meteor, really made me feel very memorable. 2 nights, I also casa dinner, a very fine meal card, and my mother's cooking is also very good, especially the lobster had to try it. Boss in addition to the special drink for my husband and I prepared to Havana has also sent a CD to me, would like to know what is? If you have the opportunity, you must want to stay in Casa Villa Silvia, to be yourself. In this I am very grateful the boss mother of our hospitality, so I spent a very happy holiday.
We stayed in this casa with our children (14/18) for 2 nights. Warm welcome – Clean rooms, shower and lavatory – Excellent dinner and breakfast – Flexible and kind owners. Other Comments: Superb roof-terrace with sun-beds to watch the sunset (or stars!) Arranged very good horseback riding trip via the casa.
Great casa!: We stayed here with 6 people in two rooms. Both rooms were clean, well air conditioned and had attached bathrooms with good showers. The house has a great rooftop terrace where you can enjoy the evening sun and the awesome mojitos Silvia's son makes. Silvia and her family are great hosts, they are very helpful and the food Silvia cooks is awesome.
Villa Silvia: Great family. Very welcoming. Would definitely go back again and will reccomend to people.
How was the food? : Amazing home cooked food everyday.
How was the room? : big with air conditioning. Very comfortable.
Other Comments : Loved it here.
Great place!!!!: Unfortunately we stayed just for 1 night but we were welcomed as part of the family, great atmosphere! Furthemore we had a room in a separate area of the main house and it was nice and very clean. You must try the lobster prepared by Silvia and the pina colada prepared by her son which is a professional barman! Vinales it the best place I have visited in Cuba and people like Silvia and her family are among my best travel memories! Thank you Silvia!
The most clean casa I’ve seen: I just can't recommend enough Casa Villa Silvia. It is the most clean house than every 5* hotels I've stayed so far. I remember that when we saw the bathroom we made with my mates the comment that even if our toothbrush would fall down, we would still use it! Food was amazing, we had breakfast and dinner all days. Portions were huge. we were three persons struggling to get up after dinner. The terrace is superb for a late afternoon cocktail. Yes Silvia does those as well. And the people there were helpful as anything as well as friendly. Don't hesitate at all to book especially if you are concerned about cleaningness and hygiene. Only downside, the shower doesn't have enough pressure.
How was the food? : excellent and big portions
How was the room? : spacious and lovely.
Paradize in Vinales: Vinales is a great area to visit and Casa Villa Silvia is a lovely and excellent place to stay. Silvia & Mimo offered us their hospitality and their smile for having a sweet and great stay. They made us delicious cocktails and excellent cooking in a quiet area. Rooms are spacious and cleanly. Casa has a terrasse where you can have a view on the city and ready for the sunrise. A address to recommend.
Enjoy our stay at Villa Sylvia: Everything perfect.
How was the food? : Excellent especially the lobster !
How was the room? : Wide enough,very clean, full equiped. Modern and pretty bathroom.
Other Comments : Sylvia and her family are very kind, smiling and gentle.We recommand this Casa Particular.
Great place in Vinales: I spent 1 night while travelling with my mum in March in Cuba. Location was great, the room was spacious, clean and quiet, the food was excellent, the family was nice and friendly. The water pressure in the shower was low but that's quite common in Vinales and Cuba and we didn't mind. I would definitely recommend it (and return if I can)
How was the food? : excellent
How was the room? : great
Other Comments : I tried to book Villa Cristal originally, but as they were fully booked, they were extremely helpful and suggested booking another casa.
Favolosa: Casa molto bella, famiglia eccezionale

Very nice casa, very clean, spacious room in the back was excelent with a nice patio where you can relax in rocking chairs. Best casa we stayed in while in Cuba. Silvia is very nice and even though she didn't speak english and our spanish was very poor she tryed her best to help us with everything and make us feel comfortable. She's also excelent chef and makes the best lobster in tomato sauce you can imagine. I don't think you can get such excelent lobster in such quantity in any restaurant...best food we ate in Cuba was in her casa. I would recoment it to everyone.

How was the food?: great

Can it get any better?: With a very reasonable price I was able to stay in one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. Vinales is definitely my favorite place in Cuba. As for the casa, the owner, Silvia, is a dear lady who will do everything in her power to help the guests have an excellent time, without being too intrusive.

How was the room? : Clean, your own bathroom, two big beds, excellent.

Great service from bbinnvinales: All the booked casas were great. It was as if we belonged to a special casa family. Everybody welcomed us and made us feel at home. Everything worked out really well, no problems - only friendly smiling faces and good mojitos. I highly recommend this service to everyone visiting Cuba.
How was the food? : food was always good
How was the room? : the rooms were different but we felt good in every single one.
Casa molto accogliente, pulita e ben gestita da persone gentili, disponibili e allegre. Camere ampie, luminose pulite e dotate di ogni comfort. Cibo buono vario e abbondante. Soprattutto molto gentili i padroni di casa e sempre sorridenti. Grazie della vostra ospitalita e cortesia. Francesca.
Our memorable Stay: Highly recommend this charming casa. Silvia and her family are warm, inviting and provide wonderful service clean and comfortable rooms, delicious and bountiful food, and a great sun terrace that is perfect for sunset viewing! It was my husband's birthday and she surprised us with a cake and champange! When we arrived, we asked about a safe in our room for valuables-which the family installed -they are very committed to catering to guests requests- Do ask for the room in the back which is large,en suite and has its own terrace. A memorable experience with a wonderful family.
Out of many good casas the best: Even though we had many beautiful casas in Cuba, this one was the best. Clean, comfortable, peaceful, great food, lovely people. We picked the room in the back (the other one is not bad either, but the one in the back even has more privacy) and received a welcome cocktail. The house is located in one of the smaller streets, just 5 minutes walking distance to the main square. The room was spacious, very clean, two big beds, private bathroom. It is quiet, you just here sometimes the horsecarts passing in front of the house which makes the stay even more charming, From both rooms you have access to a small terrace on the rooftop with deckchairs and a great view over the village and countryside. Breakfast is delicious with fresh fruit, bread, pancakes, eggs, juice etc. Dinner was perfect! Lobster, Fish, chicken - freshly made, very tasty and a lot! Prices absolutely fair for what you get. The son is barkeeper in one of the hotels on spot and if you like you can order a fresh Mojito. The family is very charming and helpful with information and advise. Car can be parked right in front of the casa. If you arrive by bus it's just a short walking distance to the casa. We stayed 2 nights but would have loved to have more time.
Lovely Stay: We stayed 3 nights at the room in the back of the garden. The room was big with colourful tiles, a new bathroom and own veranda with rocking chairs. The toilet seat was broken and there wasn't coming so much water out of the shower, but the rest was working and new. Overal it was a very nice room. At the veranda we enjoyed the mojitos Sylvia was making for us. -) The family didn't speak english, but were talking spanish in a very simple way that we could understand it! Silvia is a hard working lady and a good cook too. Her son was very friendly, nothing was too much for him. He gave us a cd with salsa music which was very nice to listen to in the car. We enjoyed our stay here! Vinales is a little place but there are lots of things to do in the beautiful surroundings. (hiking in the valley, going to the beach in cayo jutias etc)
Excellent: The best house we stayed in Cuba. Excellent quality the room was perfect, comfortable and big, the house was cozy and warm, very nice and clean, really good food, we always had breakfast and dinner at the house, Silvia and her family were very nice and helpful, we felt like home.
Fantastic: VILLA SILVIA was very very beautiful the best we had in Cuba
How was the food? : many food and very good
How was the room? : large, clean and the bed was very big and confortable
Other Comments : Like an Hotel to 4 stars.
Lovely villa, great value: We loved staying in Vinales, and the location was ideal to get to the town. Our room was very clean, well presented and had everything we needed and more. Air con and fan was also very useful! It was great to be able to have meals whenever we wanted at the casa, and the cooking was great and good value. The sun terrace above our room was also great for relaxing and sunbathing. Silvia and her family made us feel at home.
IMPECCABLE: The house has three terraces, one in the front -where you can live the towns atmosphere- and two more with beatiful views of mogotes and surrondings where you can relax and enjoy their delicious home made mojitos.
How was the food? : Lots of good food to choose.
How was the room? : Big enough, with bathroom; all new. Nice. The best in we stayed in Cuba.
Home away from home: We just returned from a 12 day trip to Cuba and spent our 2 days in Vinales at Casa Silvia. It is a wonderful and comfortable casa particular-- conveniently located a few blocks from the Plaza. She is the grandmother you need when you are traveling- a great cook, welcoming, and very helpful. You will be welcomed by the whole family. We had the back room and enjoyed having the privacy and the patio.
Great casa – highly recommended: We spent 2 days at Villa Silvia, a clean and comfortable casa with a nice terrace just a few blocks away from the main street. We enjoyed our stay very much and Silvia and her family were very friendly and helpfu l. Silvia was a very good cook - she prepared always a delicous food for us. We would stay here again!
All is perfect at Villa Silvia: We go to Cuba regularly and let us place only at the inhabitant. Villa Silvia is that which we prefer (on about ten put particulares where we remain each year).
How was the food? : very heavy and excellent food excellent mojitos and pinas coladas
How was the room? : very comfortable and regularly cleaned room, air-conditioning, warm water
Other Comments : All is perfect Silvia is very professional and always available, like Jose her husband, or Oviel and Elissandra. In short, all are perfect and it is this family atmosphere which makes us return to Silvia every year (12 days).
Villa Silvia stay: Hosts showed great hospitality and rooms were comfortable and very clean. Meal portions were very generous. Hosts offered tips of what tro see and do in the area.
How was the food? : plentiful, fresh and well prepared
How was the room? : fine
Other Comments : Some knowledge of Spanish (for us) would have been helpful but was not essential.
10/10: Food was amazing. We had 4 meals and they were all perfect.
How was the room? : Could not be cleaner. And very spacious.
Other Comments : All perfect! Would definitely go back. And Silvia and her family were amazing people. A must!
Silvia and her husband are very nice people, we got a welcome drink as we arrived and they were great hosts. Thank you! How was the food?: great breakfast!
How was the room? : clean and comfortable
Great Casa: I stayed in 6 different Casa's during my trip around Cuba and Villa Silvia was one of my two favorites. This casa was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The private room at the back of the courtyard was very inviting. It had it's own sitting area with rocking chairs in front of it. It also had a nice bathroom and a walk in closet. The whole family was very friendly and we felt very comfortable staying here.... My son and I stayed in a room in the main house which had two comfortable double beds and a nice private bathroom.
How was the food? : I really enjoyed the food at this Casa. Silvia and her daughter in law are very good cooks. We had shrimp and fish the first night and chicken the second night. It was delicious and included lots of side dishes including very tasty homemade potato chips and dessert for $8-10 cuc. Breakfast was also very good and a lot of effort was put into the presentation of the table and the food. Silvia also makes very good mojito's and the first one was free.
How was the room? : Both rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and the beds were comfortabl.
Other Comments : Stay here you won't regret it I promise.
The best casa we stayed in Cuba: Villa Sylvia was the nicest casa (of 4) that we stayed at in Cuba. Sylvia and the entire family is very friendly, welcoming, and are very happy to help their guests arrange activities (see below). Sylvia is a good cook and prepared some wonderful (and enormous!) meals for us. And she keeps her house imaculately clean... It is not on the main road, so it was quiet. It has a patio area at the back which is nice to sit out in. It is close to the middle of town, thus easy to go out for a drink and listen to the music in the evening. And Sylvia's son works up at the posh hotel on the hill and invited us to go up there for a drink and a swim whenever we wanted to (we rode our bikes up there and it is extremely pleasant to have a drink on their deck and enjoy the sunset - a fantastic view). There are two rooms - one with two double beds in it that is adjacent to the dining room, and one that seems to have one double bed in it and is separate from the house at the back. We stayed in the first room and, while perfectly comfortable, did think that the other room probably would have offered slightly more privacy and would have been slightly more removed from the daily activity of the family. Sylvia is very friendly. Our spanish was very poor - almost non-existant - and she spoke the same amount of English/French - but we still managed to comminicate somehow (pointing at pictures, sharades, and working things out with the phrasebook). She is very kind, good-humoured, and patient.
Lovely family, very welcoming and very friendly How was the food?: Very tasty
How was the room? : Cosy
Excellent casa. Very friendly people and excellent cooking! How was the food?: 5
How was the room? : 5
Other Comments : Definitely a good stay in Vinales!
We recommend this nice casa: we have spent 3 days in this casa and we can recommend it without exception. silvia and her family are very friendly, the served food is great (although not versatile; but this is actually nowhere the case) and it is a lot...really a lot. -) although we did not speak spanish (and our hosts no english) the communication was not a problem. another plus is that our host were also very helpful in planing our daily excursions (DO not miss the horse riding)
