Nous avons séjourné à 5 chez Sonia et Jacinto. C'était très bien; Les petits déjeuners copieux et la chaleur humaine au rendez-vous.
Jacinto and Sonia are very nice people and took good care of me and also enjoyed talking with them. Nice and clean house, room, bathroom. Sonia cooked a very nice dinner for me. Absolutely can recommend for everybody to stay at their home. Jacinto took me to the bus station from where I I took the bus to Playa Santa Maria (20-30minutes). About 10 minutes walk you can find internet place too. Thank you Jacinto and Sonia for the warm welcome!:)
Gostamos muito da nossa estadia na casa de Jacinto e Sonia. O quarto é limpo e confortável. Jacinto é uma pessoa muito comunicativa e disponível, nos ajudou muito com dicas de programas e atrações de Havana. Em algumas noites jantamos na casa e pudemos saborear pratos locais preparados pela Sonia que cozinha divinamente. Nossa experiência foi muito positiva.
Sonia and Jacinto were great hosts! We love to stay with them. They were really kind and helpful!
Jancinto show us everything near the house and drive us everyday to the bus station.
Sonia‘s dinners were really delicious, the best food we ate in Kuba! Also the free breakfast was great!
