  • Une casa magnifique ! by Tristan Marcel (Stayed on Feb 25, 2018)

    Cette casa est tout simplement ma casa préférée sur toute l'île de Cuba ! C'est toujours un plaisir d'y retourner ! La famille est très accueillante et souriante : c'est un vrai bonheur que de partager des instants avec eux ! La maison est très belle, typique, pleine de charme, propre et surtout très confortable : c'est rare d'avoir la chance de trouver des casas aussi bien aménagées ! Les services proposés sont nombreux et permettent de découvrir Trinidad sans stress et amplement ! A la prochaine !

  • Angola and Maria by Eva Petersen (Stayed on Jan 21, 2018)

    We stayed 2 nights in Casa Ceramista. A very warm family incl the dog Scoopy.Very nice and green terrasses. We specially enjoyed the tale from Alexeys father about Angola and..tys-tys. And he had the same profession as myself, which was a nice coincidence. Alexey and Eva helped us to book a tour to Topes de Collantes where we had been before. The guide just knew- everything. The ceramic is now on display in our apartment. This casa will be on our list for the next trip

  • Superbe by BOUCHET (Stayed on Jan 02, 2018)

    nous avons passé 2 nuits dans cette casa, ou Alexey et sa famille nous ont accueilli très chaleureusement !! nous vous conseillons le petit-déjeuner et le dîner qui sont excellents. L'emplacement de la casa est idéale. Nous recommandons vivement cette casa.

  • Absolutely excellent in every way by Holly McGivern (Stayed on Dec 01, 2017)

    We had an absolutely amazing stay with Alexey and his family, by far our most favourite Casa in Cuba. We arrived stressed and tired after a hard year and within a day, this had melted away due to the family's kindness and hospitality, we truly felt so welcome and part of the family. Our bed was comfy, room spacious and immaculately clean, great breakfast of coffee, fruit, cake, sandwiches and egg, lovely bathroom with lots of hot water. We spent time relaxing on the roof terrace and listening to the unique sounds of this beautiful town and the water feature in Alexey's workshop. If you are visiting Trinidad, we would most highly recommend Casa El Ceramista; you will not regret it! The family are warm, hospitable and we miss them all very much.

  • La opción ideal para difrutar de Trinidad como si estuvieses en casa by Oscar Gou (Stayed on Nov 04, 2017)

    Casa El Ceramista fue una de las mejores casas (por no decir la mejor) de todas las casas particulares en las que nos alojamos durante nuestro viaje a cuba. Por un lado, la ubicación de la casa: Ideal. Cerca de todo. Por otro lado, la atención de Alexey, Modesto y toda la família, que nos hicieron sentir parte de su família. Nos organizaron un día perfecto para poder visitar los alrededores de Trinidadad. Ojalá hubiesemos podido pasar dos o 3 noches más con ellos. Desayunamos en la casa todos los días. Un desayuno perfecto: Zumo, Fruta, Sandwich, Pastas, Pan, Huevos... También decidimos cenar un dia en la casa. Muy bueno y de gran calidad a muy muy buen precio. Si os alojáis en la casa no dejéis escapar la oportunidad de cenar! Langosta con una salsita deliciosa, Camarones y Pescado, acompañado de yuca, ensalada, arroz.... y de postre un dulce de Naranja que nos pareció delicioso. Y tambien nos prepararonPiña Colada. La mejor que tomamos en todo nuestro viaje. Os aseguro que pensamos volver a Cuba, y que cuando volvamos repetiremos en Casa El Ceramista!
