Odelmis and William gave us a warm welcome at their hostal. From the roof terrace they told us the nice things to do in the area and the best places to eat (good recommendation!). The rooms are very clean and modern. They also arranged the transport from the airport to the hostal, Thanks for your hospitality, we loved it!
I had a lovely stay with William and Odelmis! The room was nice and clean, and the location was perfect (15 minutes walking to Varadero beach). Also, William can arrange some excursions and transport. Thank you for the nice experience :)
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Eine sehr sauber Unterkunft mit kleinem Frühstück. Wir waren sehr zufrieden. Nette Vermitter
I loved my stay with William and his wonderful family at Hostel Isla Bella in Santa Marta, Varadero. William communicates very well in English and is very kind, helpful, hospitable and was a fantastic host. He went out of his way to make my stay special. I would highly recommend staying at his casa and if I returned, I would stay with them again.
Familia muy disponible y de corazón! Lugar muy cómodo y tranquilo. Habitación con todas la fornitura y los muebles nuevos. Óptimo colchón y televisión! Posición de la habitación perfecta para mi porque me ha encantado Santa Marta que diste 2 km aproximadamente de Varadero y de las estructuras balnearias. Gracias por haberme accolto en sus espléndida familia!
Hallo liebe Leute habe das erste mal einen Casa particular in Anspruch genommen und bin positiv überrascht. Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass alles so perfekt sein würde. Mein Zimmer im Hostal Isla Bella war wirklich sehr sehr sauber und heimisch eingerichtet. Vorallem das Bad absolut nach europäische Standards. Das mir im Casa Angebote essen hat echt klasse geschmeckt. Ich war 3 Wochen dort und wollte gar nicht mehr weg, weil mich die Gastfamilie so liebevoll aufgenommen und betreut hat. Außerdem war die wifi-Zone unmittelbar in der Nähe. Nicht zu vergessen der wundervolle Strand von varadero ist fußläufig zu erreichen. Man hat zahlreiche Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe. Absolut weiter zu empfehlen und das war nicht das letzte mal das ich dort gewesen bin. Einen Riesen Dankeschön an William und Odelmis wir sehen uns Juni.
Liebe Grüße Pelin
Nuestra estancia en hostal Isla Bella fue una experiencia inovidable en todos los sentidos. Primero la acogida, en efecto William y Odelmis son personas muy agaradables con las que pudimos intercambiar mucho. Segundo, la habitación era muy cómoda por lo que nos sentimos muy a gusto. Para terminar tuvimos la suerte de comer platos de William riquísimos.
¡Recomiendo este hostal a todos los turistas que quieran pasarlo bien!
