Motica is a lovely, genuinely friendly man with a big smile and a big sense of fun! He was so so helpful. Nothing was too much for him, even lending us money until the Cadeca opened the next day. Iyima his wife is a real sweetie too. Her food was some of the best we had in Cuba, including locally...

It's always going to be a great day at Rio Villa Mar. Stay in any one of 3 comfortable rooms and enjoy the best hospitality in the region. My stay was fantastic...with delicious food, great views and beaches. There are so many things to do, you will have trouble deciding what to do first. Everything from complete adventure to ultimate...

We spent three nights in Villa Rio-Mar, and found it clean, comfortable and attractive. We had an upstairs room, which I would recommend over the downstairs ones, as it has a great breezy patio with a view over palm trees and water. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, with lots of fresh fruit. We had dinner there several nights and this...

Stayed 2 nights in the town of Playa Larga in Cuba. This small hotel was nice. It's not directly on the beach but just a short walk away. Breakfast was great and dinner was good too. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great. The electricity went out throughout our stay but that wasn't the hotel's fault. They...

We traveled with friends to Cuba in April 2016 and had a reservation at Villa Rio-Mar. This was the start of our trip and the first Casa we stayed in. We were warmly welcomed by our host, Daniel who did everything he could to make us feel at home.We occupied the two top bedrooms and there is also a sitting...

We arrived in Caletón on Mon 22nd Feb and found a room at Villa Rio Mar for 2 nights. We were given a downstairs room, which was ok but not as nice as the upstairs rooms. We asked about breakfast and dinner but the owner was very vague just telling us that it would be very cheap. We finally managed...

Sometimes you wake up in the morning thinking, "this is going to be a special day". Well, everyday is like that here at Rio Villa Mar. Your hosts Motica and Iyima are a wonderfully friendly couple that are the most helpful folks around. They seem to know just about everything you could want or need, and...if they don't, they can...

It's fair to say this was the accommodation highlight during our two-week stay in Cuba. We spent 3 nights at this casa which occupies a good location, close to the beach with views from upstairs over the lagoon - a good place to watch wildlife including herons, Black Hawks and Belted Kingfisher. But it's the hosts, the quality of the...

Motica… The owner of the casa: You'll just love him. He speaks english and of course spanish, and will help you organize trips in the area. The place is very nice, with a balcony with sea-view and a 2-3 min walk to a beautiful caribbean beach. Small and with not many tourists. Playa larga is very small and there's no...

This casa is very clean and bright and has a lovely view from the upstairs terrace. The room we were in (upstairs, inside) had lots of space for our luggage and the bathroom had a great shower. The casa is about a 3 minute walk to the beach and about a 10 minute walk into town where there is a...
