Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön, die Gastgeber sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Allerdings ist La Boca furchtbar. Der Strand, den nur Kubaner nutzen, ist verdreckt, weil die Kubaner ihren Müll einfach liegen lassen. Es gibt auch keine Abfallkörbe. Das Wasser stinkt, weil es auch dort auch keine Toiletten gibt. Nur 1 Restaurant. Hätte ich das gewußt, hätten wir dort sicher nicht gebucht.
sehr liebe GASTGEBER
das Zimmer ist super sauber und schön mit einem tolles Bad, nur die Fenster lassen sich wegen Sicherung nicht öffnen.
in La Boca ist nur leider nichts los und es gibt kein Radio und keinen Fernseher im Zimmer!
We enjoyed staying here very much! Delicious breakfast, very clean room. Lovely people. Thank you!
Very good place to stay and mattress was GOOD which is exceptional for a place that is not a hotel !
Shower was working perfect, towels nice .... Everything was perfect.
The only thing is that the beach that is close by is not really attractive and the place is far from Trinidad centre. This has to be considered before booking
We loved our stay at Elpidio's place. The whole family was very welcoming and nothing was ever too much for them. When we arrived, they helped us with our luggage and offered us a complimentary cocktail on our terrace which had lovely views of the sea. We were then served a delicious meal for dinner which was very reasonable for 10 CUC and included a delicious vegetable soup starter, bread and butter and dessert of fresh fruit and ice cream.
Elpidio has two bikes which can be hired for 3 CUC a day and it's a great way of getting from La Boca to Trinidad or the beach of Ancon. If you want to venture into Trinidad at night, Elpidio can book a taxi for only 5 CUC. La Boca is definitely a great place to stay away from touristy and busy Trinidad but close enough (only 5km) that it is easy to visit Trinidad as often as you like.
The room has very comfortable mattresses (my husband has a bad back so this is very important to us), air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. It is a very spacious room (we had the one on the top floor) and offers lots of privacy and has a HUGE terrace to boost, ideal for sitting out on in the evenings with a Mojito or two or during the day to get some sun.
I can't recommend Eplidio's place enough both for the amenities, the food and the service (it was above and beyond what you would expect from a casa particular - probably better than most hotel services - and they speak excellent English which does just make life a bit easier as our pigeon Spanish could only get us so far).
The casa was recently built & very clean; the room was cleaned daily. The bed was large & comfortable. There was a safe in the room, and the casa very secure at night, with an alarm system. The large windows in the room could not be open at night, because of the security system. They also could not be open during the day, as the wind might catch them and break the glass. So the air conditioning was useful. There were lovely plants around the outdoor dining area, visited daily by a humming bird. Three dogs live there, so there is some barking and running about, but they don't come to the table.
We were provided with 2 large fluffy bath towels, but there was only 1 towel hook, no towel bar, and no hand towel provided. (Just as well, as there was no place to hang a hand towel to dry.) There were many lovely built-in hardwood storage cabinets & drawers, but they were not all practical. There were no storage areas large enough to fit our big suitcases, and some cabinets were too high to reach. There were only 5 hangers in the closet, not really enough for guests staying a week. For reading in the evening, we had either stand in the bathroom, which had good lighting, or use the LED flashlight we fortunately brought with us!
Host Elpidio spoke perfect English, and was very helpful with directions and suggestions, and arranging transportation. Just make sure the communal taxi is not a small hatchback to serve 4 adult passengers with their 4 large and 4 smaller pieces of luggage! Elpidio's sister did a great job on our laundry - she got out some longstanding stains!
We ate breakfasts and suppers there. The food was rather plain, but the presentation was exquisite, and the service by Ron was sublime! He wore black tie for the supper service! His English, attentiveness, and personality were awesome.
Amazing stay!! Highly recommended.
Very clean and comfortable house and bedrooms. Fantastic sunset views on the terrace. A warm welcome with a cocktail and fabulous food. We stayed 2 nights. A great place to relax after a busy day in Trinidad - Dinners were so tasty and the family was so friendly.
This casa provided an amazing vacation get away. The casa is simply beautiful with 3 stories available to you including a breathtaking roof top view of the mountains, ocean and other casas near by. The hosts accomodate your needs to the fullest. We were 5 students staying in the house and they only had two bikes but called a friend to get us 3 more bikes for the day which allowed us to have a wonderful day biking along the beach. The dinner they provide for around 8 cook includes 5 courses of food prepared in the casa and is served professionally by a friendly waiter. We had to leave to take a bus at 5:30 am and the hosts graciously ensured we had breakfast and that a taxi would be waiting for us. We had a great stay and would love to go back for a good week. :)
Absolutely beautiful house and family to stay with. The dinner they made for us was the best meal we had through out Cuba and their hospitality was fantastic. Able to borrow bikes to ride to the beaches which makes life very easy in this small town just out of Trinidad. Well worth staying with this family.
We had selected Elpidio's house to stay for the second part of our honeymoon in Cuba and what an excellent decision that was. Elpidio and his lovely family gave us a very touching welcome with the room decorated with petals, the towels formed into hearts and a bottle of bubbly. The standard of the accommodation is excellent and better than the reasonably expensive hotel we had stayed in during our time in Havana the week before; there was a good shower with hot water, a wonderful king-sized bed and modern decor. We decided to eat at the house most evenings and Norma, Elpidio's mother, is an excellent cook - her cream of vegetable soup is second to none. The amount of food and drink on offer for no more that 10 cuc each is amazing and we heartily recommend that anyone staying with Elpidio takes advantage of this offer. There are some amazing little secluded beaches with parasols and snorkelling around the coral available within walking distance from the house but we also took a taxi to just a little further up the peninsula to a stretch of beach which also had sunbeds for hire and a bar. However, the best part of the stay was the hospitality of Elpidio and the rest of the family; nothing was too much trouble and Elpidio dropped everything to travel to Trinidad on one occasion when we were having trouble getting currency from the local bank. We highly recommend this accommodation and would love to think that we may be able to go back again some day.
