  • Esther is wonderful by Tobias Norregaard Hammarberg (Stayed on Mar 30, 2016)

    The casa is situated in the center of Vinales close to bars and restaurants. The casa owner Esther is a wonderful elderly lady. A great pl ace to stay in Vinales. How was the food?
    We both got breakfast and dinner here, and both dishes were very nice and tasty. How was the room?
    Great room with aircondition. Perfect for 2-4 people.

  • Pretty good by Olivia (Stayed on May 01, 2013)

    We enjoyed our stay with Esther. We wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Esther is a very calm woman. She will not interfere with your plans in any way. How was the food?
    Definitely some of the best I ate in Cuba. Esther is a master of fried chicken, and I am obsessed with her fried plantains. How was the room?
    The room was adequate. It had A/C and a fridge. Like everywhere that I stayed in Cuba the mattresses and pillows were not very comfortable. Other Comments
    Other houses might be more lively or interesting. But if you are looking for a place that is calm and has excellent food, Casa Esther is great.

  • A great casa in a great area ! by Elodie

    We spent 3 days at Casa Esther. The room and its private bathroom are very clean and quiet. Esther takes really care about us. She is a fabulous cook (we had breakfast and dinner at the Casa). She and her family are very nice people. How was the food?
    Fresh and delicious ! How was the room?
    Quiet and clean. Possible for family (2 big beds).

  • Avoid this place by Fabien

    Very not confortable in this casa, the owner was insisting a lot for us to have lunch and dinner at her place, making us guilty to go outside enjoying a restaurant. Casa not very nice compared to others in town for the same price. How was the food?
    Good. How was the room?
    Simple and not very cosy .

    Management response from : Esther : Owner : Hi Fabien: We really sorry your experience in our home was not good. Sorry you felt we were insisting you to have dinner with us, this is not our intention. Maybe was a misunderstanding despite the language, because for us is OK if our clients go to restaurants. Regarding our room we know is basic room and not luxury with minimum things people can need (air con, private bathroom, 2 big beds, freezer, hot water), but is a home with 100 : cuban family. Thanks any way for your sincere opinion, which help us to know where we made a mistake. Saludos, Esther Nodarse

  • Excellent casa by Luca

    Very good casa, confortable, clean, with a large bedroom with 2 queen beds, a fridge, air condition, bath with cold and hot water, in a quite road close to village center. Esther is an excellent cook, the food is good, the typical creol cousine, the breakfast abbondant with tropical fruit, juice, eggs, bread, etc. I advise this room both for familiy, young peoples, backpacker, etc, beacouse it's a good start point to visit Vinales valley, mogotes, caves, tobacco farms, etc, Esther can help you on organize your trip. How was the food?
    good, tropical and/or continental/english breakfast and lunch available, Esther is a good cook How was the room?
    large and clean|n|
