Top place in Vinales: We were four friends who travelled together around eastern part of Cuba. We hired a car in Havana and our first stop was in Vinales on 4th March 2017. We stayed at Marilyn and Adel for two nights. Marilyn is a very friendly and charming person, talks fluently English, so that we got the perfect introduction for our stay in Vinales. The place is quiet and two identical rooms which are for hire are equipped with comfortable beds with bedside tables, AC and enough space for personal belongings The bathrooms are large with warm water and good shower. Outside the rooms there are two rocking chairs with small tables, there is a pleasant sitting place on the roof with a nice view of the mountains or if you like, for stargazing with a best mojito we ever got on Cuba, prepared by Marilyns son (apologize, I desremeber his name). Marilyn recommended and followed us to a pleasant restaurant, second evening prepared she for us a superb dinner based on a huge red snapper; taste it if you get an occasion! Next day we wished to go to Vinales valley using a horse carriage. It is not so usual way of voyage, but Marilyn was able to arrange it for us; if you will try, be prepared for a wear and tear enterprise! If you wish to have a 5-stars service and accommodation in Vinales then your choice should be – Casa Marilyn and Adel!

Great Casa – Absolutely recommended: We spent 2 nights at Casa de Marilyn in Vinales and we were completely impressed by every aspect of our stay.I cannot say enough good things about this Casa. Marilyn and her husband Adel were very organized, friendly and welcoming.T he room was super clean and the food was so delicious. The Casa is in a perfect location and if you have a rental car, don't worry because they have parking. Marilyn speaks English very well, so don't miss the chance to enjoy the conversation with her about Cuba. Marilyn arranged a 4 hour horseback riding trip to the valley which was an amazing experience that you should not miss if you are visiting Vinales. We would definitely come back to stay with you again. If you are visiting Vinales don't hesitate to stay at Casa de Marilyn.
My favorite casa in Cuba!: Staying at Marilyn's house was one of the highlights of our vacation. We were only there one night - I wish we had stayed longer! Marilyn speaks really good English and is willing to help organize cars and horse rides if you need her to . She put us in touch with a guy called Miguel who took us on our favorite activity of the trip - a 4 hour horse ride through the tobacco fields and valleys. The food she cooked for us at night was probably one of the best meals I had so I definitely recommend getting the lobster! The room is super clean and spacious and I liked that she had 2 beds which was unusual for casas. Marilyn is super organized and really runs the accommodation well so you are definitely in good hands. Definitely recommend Casa de Marilyn for anyone passing through Vinales.
Very outstanding Casa in Vinales!: We can highly recommend this casa in Vinales. We had a wonderful stay there. Marilyn is a very good host and cook, her english is perfect. We really felt at home in their house! Marilyn can arrange any trip in the Vinales valley you would like to do. We did a 4 hours hiking trip with a very nice farmer and visited the Indian Cave. The Casa is located in a quiet street, yet close to the center. The room including a private bathroom is very nice and clean and the house has a nice rooftop terrace with a view on the valley and the mogotes. You can park your car in the garden, therefore it is very safe!
How was the food? : Very delicious and fresh meals (Lobster, Chicken, Pork, Fish etc.), great breakfast with various choices. Try the Mojito on the rooftop terrace ? !
How was the room? : The room was comfortable and very clean with an AC. If you ever go to Vinales, you must not miss this Casa!

Wonderful casa in Vinales: I highly recommend this casa in Vinales! The casa is closeby to where the Viazul bus drops you off and the room itself is lovely with two double beds and an ensuite bathroom. Other plus points are a separate fridge with fruit and drinks that you can help yoursel f to and a rooftop seating area with direct views to the mogotes of Vinales. Adel built the casa by himself - very impressive! But what really makes this casa stand out are Marilyn and Adel. They welcome you into their home and family - cooking you lovely food and laying it out on the table beautifully, giving you suggestions on what to do (and then helping you arrange it) and taking the time and trouble to just sit down and get to know you better. Marilyn speaks very good English and we all had a lovely chat in their living room, where all our questions were answered and Marilyn and Adel shared valuable insights and funny stories of life in Cuba. They are truly warm and friendly people who will go out of their way to make sure you have a comfortable stay in Vinales.

Awesome Casa in Vinales: Casa Marilyn was the best casa we stayed in Cuba - and we saw a lot of casas. Marilyn is very kind and funny.

Look no further: We stayed at Casa Marilyn's in Vinales Feb.17 18 &19, 2011. This is a five star casa all the way. Cleanliness, Bed quality, bathroom, hot water and meals. On top of all this you have a compassionate caring hostess, Marilyn, who speaks fluent English. She acted as our guide on a sight seeing trip. She also saw that I got to a medical clinic for medication for a persistent cough. You will certainly will be looked after here! Don and Marj Rogers.
Great casa and people!: From the first moment arriving at this house we encountered a lovely and caring family in a cozy casa. Marilyn is a wonderful and very engaged (and very good english speaking!) person giving us good advises (horseback riding, visit of a tobacco finca, massages of a professional masseur coming to the house) and insight information about Cuban life. We only spent two nights here but felt at home immediately with interesting discussions and good laughter at nights (incl. delicious mojitos!).
