I spent 4 nights here with my wife. Big mistake. Besides the fact that this place has a nice view of the surroundings and is quieter than most places on the main street, this place was an unpleasant experience. I strongly recommend avoiding it! (In fact - I would avoid Vinales entirely. It's overrated and overpriced.) Noel is a very...

If you are looking for a clean, serene, and comfortable setting then look no further. This is it! We loved our experience at this casa with Mercedes and Noel. The meals were excellent and the company of the hosts made our time there richer. The location can't be beat! Loved it. I would give this place a 5 star rating,...

We highly recommend Casa Noel. We spent 4 nights with Noel and Mercedes. The house is about a 15 minute walk from the main road in Vinales, but the walk is very pleasant. The house is located with views of the magotes (rocky formations). We enjoyed being just outside of the town. The owners are very hospitable. Mercedes cooking is...

Great view and very good food but it was just a shame that they were really pushing for a (amateur) guide who wanted to charge us 40 dollars per person for a 4 hours trip (normal price is around 10). And this while we even have our own car... We thanked for the offer and after that the owners gone...

This is a wonderful place to stay, peaceful and quiet, with breathtaking views of the mountains. The house is spotless, the owners are lovely and can sort out anything you may need, be it a taxi, an excursion, whatever. The food is spectacular.

I did not stay here but rather had an evening meal as a large party. The food here was absolutely delicious, plentiful, hot and delightfully served. Platters of fish, lobster, pork, chicken, plantains, rice, black beans accompanied by tomatoes, cucumber, salad and fresh fruit... The sort of food that you think you have sampled all over Cuba - until you...

Villa Noel is the perfect place where to spend a couple of days in Vinales. Mercedes is a great cook and Noel can organize you horse riding or every other kind of activity in the valley. The house is very nice and located in the coutryside..don't miss. It!

The other reviews are bang on about the tranquility of the place. It may also be the cleanest and most modern (relative to other Casas) in Cuba. Noel is the proprietor, though Mercedes with her robust laugh is the heart and soul. They appear to be well known and respected by many others in the community. One must be aware...

Fantastic and friendly service from the start, from Noel coming to meet us at the bus stop when we arrived in Viñales, to waving us off on our last day. In a great location out in the countryside, it's a 15 minute walk away from the main street which means that it is completely quiet at night. The food was...

We stayed in Casa Noel for 4 days. The house stands outside the (touristic) centre of Vinales, so you don't hear traffic noises. The room is big and clean (it's possible to stay with a family in the room, because it has two twin beds). Mercedes is a great cook, diner and breakfast were fresh and delicious. It is possible...
