We were recommended this casa from a friend who stayed early last year and we later realised it is in the Lonely Planet. It appears this place has changed greatly since our friends were there as they described a great family run casa. I don't think we even saw a family member let alone spoke to one. Room was clean...

Lonely Planet got it very wrong including this casa as a recommendation for Playa Larga. It's at least a 20 minute walk from the Playa Larga beach which is the nice one in this village. And in 35 degree heat that feels like a long walk! The beach outside the casa looks pretty but the water and beach were very...

We only stayed one night luckily as this was by far the worst experience of a casa we had in all the 9 casas we stayed in while in Cuba. We followed the lonely planet review foolishly (no internet to see these reviews) and found the owner Fidel to be very rude. The room beside the entrance had the smallest...

My girlfriend and I had a stop off in Playa Larga during our week long trip in Cuba, after a day of diving we had a few hours to kill before our bus back to havana so we stopped into Fidel's (not that Fidel, lol) for some afternoon drinks and dinner. We spent the afternoon on the beach with some...

Having researched before travelling to Cuba, we often placed our trust in our Lonely Planet Guide. On this occasion, the editors need to visit this establishment. We arrived early in the morning and our room wasn't available - no problems with that. One of our party was heading for diving - this was arranged by the owner and again this...

My fiancé and I spent one night here on the strength of the lonely planet review - like others, we couldn't get internet access so rang ahead to book. We had a small double rom next to the entrance which did get some street noise, but not too bad. There was an en-suite and air conditioning. We paid 28cuc plus...

I decided to write a quick review because a lot of comments I see elsewhere seem to be wrong. Firstly, this is a very normal casa by Cuban standards - not super luxe accommodation, not a dump. The rooms are plain, comfortable enough, clean enough. If you need the a/c all night, that will be a problem for you. I...

The unexpected and forced swap into a dodgy taxi near Havana Airport didn't put us in the best of moods for Playa Larga. El Caribeno was given a big wrap by our travel agent and a well known guide book but we found it very average. Most unwelcoming staff who seemed to do as little as they could to make...

Stayed at the casa for two days and was very disappointed. Had the small room at the entrance (room no 2 i think) and it was very damp and smelled of p. The AC was making much noise, and the noise from the street was also very disturbing. Fidel the owner was very nonchalant and the dinner at the casa...

We were so exicted to go to Playa Larga... As we didnt have internet access when we took the decision to go there we have decided to choose one casa from Lonely Planet guide. We have called and booked Casa El Caribeno. We have arrived around 9am, so we knew that we will have to wait for the room. Fidel...
