Playa Giron was a complete surprise. It is not exactly on the ocean - the old Playa Giron Hotel sits between the village and the beach, so none of the Casa Particulars are on the ocean. You need to walk through the old Playa Giron Hotel to get to any beaches. The village is small, with lots of people walking,...

We stayed there 3 nights at the end of our trip. The quality of the service was the best we had encountered in Cuba. The waitress and the owners were really helpful, nice and kind. We had a problem to find a taxi driver who would take us to Las Salinas in Zapata swamp on the next day. We heard...

The best place we stayed in Cuba! Food was delicious and was huge portions. The best lobster we've ever had! The staff were great, after dinner Luis went around and introduced himself to all the guests and asked how their stay was going. Eddy and Jimmy made our stay! They even taught us how to play dominos one night. They...

This Casa P is trying its best to be more a hotel than BB. The 35 CUC price was the average I found for Cuba and thought worth it. We perhaps got lucky as we had the front room so a veranda over looking the road, lounge with fridge and large double room. Front room did mean facing main road...

As many other TripAdvisor reviewers noted, this is more a small hotel than a casa (and in fact Luis was nowhere to be found during our stay), which didn't bother us. The room and bathroom are above your average casa in Cuba, but note that you are paying for it (35 CUC/night instead of 25 CUC/night usually), and they force...

Hostal Luis is a very nice accommodation in Playa Giron, it has 2 different houses close to each other, with approximately 12 rooms in total. The room in which me and my boyfriend stayed was quite big, with a huge private bathroom and old air conditioning. At the first sight the room wasn’t so nice, maybe because of the old...

Ok, I didn't stay here, but I had a group tour lunch here and it was OUTSTANDING. The service by the staff and the owner was lovely. They do not do this meal prep for everyone, but our tour makes a special request every time when they tour the Bay of Pigs museum in Playa Giron and this meal is...
