Freundliche Vermieter, Essen gut, schöne, großzügige, schattige Terrasse, das vordere Zimmer ist doch etwas warm, schmälert aber nicht den positiven Gesamteindruck

Achtung !!! Betrug und Verkaufsgespräch !!! Nie wieder !!!

Ich bin betrogen worden, mir wurde über Nacht die Luft aus meinem PKW Reifen gelassen, es wurde natürlich so gesagt das ich irgendwo drüber gefahren bin vom Vermieter, aber ich bin ja nicht dumm, ich hatte das Auto seid Nachmittag nicht mehr genutzt und Abends vor dem schlafen gehen war noch alles ok und es fehlte definitiv keine Luft. Es ist ganz klarer Betrug, als ich geschlafen habe Nachts wurde die Luft raus gelassen, mir dann morgens gesagt der Reifen ist defekt da ich irgendwo drüber gefahren bin, dieser wurde dann gewechselt während ich im Nationalpark Vinales war (vorher sollte ich das Notrad raus stellen aus dem Kofferraum), als ich nach ca. 4 Std. zurück kam war dann das Notrad aufgezogen und das normale Rad wieder voller Luft. Es wurde also einfach nur die Luft aufgepumpt, mir es aber so erzählt das er repariert wurde was natürlich eine dreiste Lüge ist. Aber was hätte ich machen sollen ohne Spanisch zu können, und Englisch konnten die Vermieter nicht. Dafür wurden dann 15 CUC verlangt. Völliger Betrug.

Außerdem fand gleich bei Anreise ein Verkaufsgespräch statt, ich sollte 25€ für die Besichtigung mit einem Guide in den Nationalpark bezahlen ( der aber überhaupt keinen Eintritt kostet). Ich sagte das ich dazu bicht bereit bin, und nur damit ich endlich ruhe habe wurde sich dann auf 15€ geeinigt und die Tochter die das Verkaufsgespräch gemacht hat (wozu man wirklich im Urlaub keine Lust hat) war sehr verärgert das Sie nicht die 25€ erhalten hat, absolut dreist.

Mir wurde auch gesagt das der Guide (Führer) durch den Nationalpark dann Englisch spricht, was ebenfalls nicht der Fall war, so war eine Kommunikation nicht möglich und ich bin einfach nur Stumm hinterher gelaufen, also auch das eine miese Lüge.

Sehr wahrscheinlich war das dann mit dem Reifen Betrug die Rache um doch noch genügend Umsatz zu machen.

Ich hoffe das diesen Bericht hier viele lesen da ich andere Nutzer vor solchen Betrügern schützen möchte

Watch out !!! Cheating and sales talk !!! Never again !!!

I was deceived, I was left overnight by the air from my car tire, it was said, of course, so I drove somewhere over the landlord, but I'm not stupid, I had the car in the afternoon no longer used and in the evening before Go to sleep was still everything ok and there was definitely no air. It is very clear deceit, when I slept At night the air was let out, then told me in the morning the tire is broken as I drove somewhere over it, this was then changed while I was in the national park Vinales (before I should put the emergency wheel out From the trunk), when I came back after about 4 hours was then the emergency wheel reared and the normal wheel again full of air. So it was just pumped up the air, but it tells me that he was repaired what is of course a brazen lie. But what I should have done without Spanish, and English the landlord could not. For this, 15 CUCs were required. Full deception.

There was also a sales talk at the time of arrival, I should pay 25 € for the visit with a guide in the national park (but no entrance at all costs). I said that I am willing to be ready, and only so I finally have peace was then agreed to 15 € and the daughter who made the sales talk (which you really do not want on holiday) was very annoyed that you did not the 25 € Has absolutely been bold.

I was also told that the guide (guide) through the national park then speaks English, which was also not the case, so a communication was not possible and I just walked silently, so also the lousy lie.

Most likely this was then with the tire fraud revenge in order to still make enough sales.

I hope this report read many here as I want to protect other users from such fraudsters

Casa is comfortable and around 7 minutes walk from the bus station.

The host does not know how to speak in English but if you understand

Spanish, she's quite helpful and chatty.

The Casa was okay. Everything was clean and the price was good. But the mattress was really bad because it was no real mattress. It was only a foam material. Therfore we had some back pain. But the worst thing was the man who came direct after we arrived. He sold a trip to the national parc and the trip was to expensive. It cost 25 Cuc but you can get the same trip for 10-15 Cuc when you buy it in the tourist information office.

Nie wieder!

Wir haben anscheinend falsch gebucht und nur für 2 anstatt 4 Personen gebucht, obwohl wir die Buchungsbestätigung dabei hatten. Da zu diesem Zeitpunkt ganz Vinales ausgebucht war, hat man die Zimmer für mehr Geld einfach weitervermietet und uns dann "netterweise" bei der Tante einquartiert. Das Zimmer, das wir dann bekommen haben, war eine Zumutung. Dreckig, klein und ganz weit außerhalb.

Galdis fand sich auch noch super nett dabei, dass sie da "was für uns arrangiert" hat ...

Als wir ankamen hat sie erstmal eine Verkaufsshow organisiert, wo man uns zwingen wollte Touren zu buchen.

Das war die schlechteste Erfahrung, die wir aus Kuba gemacht haben.

Die Casa liegt nicht direkt an der angegeben Hauptstrasse, ist deshalb nicht ganz so schnell zu finden. Ansonsten waren Zimmer und Ausstattung Top, sogar unseren Wagen konnten wir aufs Grundstück fahren. Gladis ist sehr Herzlich und redebedürftig, spricht leider nur 2, 3 Wörter Englisch. Leider hat Sie uns sofort nach der Ankunft, mit den Touren welche ihr Schwiegertochter macht zugetextet. Das ist allerdings nur ein kleiner und der einzigste Kritikpunkt.

We really don't understand the positive reviews. Vinales has so many Casas and this one is definetely not in the top 70%.

- It is NOT 3 minutes from the Central Plaza, but 10 to 15 min.

- She will have you pay the deposit for her larger room, give you the smaller one and will let you pay the full amount

- "Deluxe" is a word she added, please don't be fooled by it

- Horrible beds

I would pick another one, this one is rubbish.

We stayed 4 nights at the casa. Friendly and helpful people, good food, nice garden. in a quiet neighbourhood, a bit off the beaten track, which we enjoyed. Be careful with the restaurant nextdoor: one of us had a piece of glass in his food. There were no apologies and we had to pay the whole bill.

Gladys made my friend and I feel very welcome in her beautiful casa. It was tricky to find at first as the house is set back from the main road, but equally, that was an advantage as it was a little quieter too. Gladys helped us organise trips and taxis, and even made us a take-away breakfast for our bus journey to Cienfuegos. I would recommend this homestay to anyone visiting Vinales.

Stayed for 4 nights with Maceo and Gladis. Their place is cute; you have your own entrance and shared terrace and it is very private. Good location...5 minute walk to town. Gladis met us at the bus stop and was very friendly right from the start. They don't speak too much English, so it is a great opportunity to practice your Spanish. They were very helpful with planning tours and getting us oriented to the town. Really enjoyed talking with them and sharing stories! Breakfasts were filling...lots of fruit, bread, cheese and omelettes. We plan on staying with them in Viñales on our next trip to Cuba!

We had a little trouble finding the place, since it is in a back road. However, after having found the place Maceo and Gladis welcomed us with a cold beverage and a lot of recommendations what to see around the area. We felt like home. Earplugs may however be recommended. There are quite a few cocks around the neighborhood.

Maceo et Gladys sont des personnes très gentilles et accueillantes.

Gladys cuisine très bien. Ils sont aussi très à l'écoute de nos désirs et peuvent trouver les bonnes personnes pour les visites du coin.

Merci à eux pour tout :)

It was agreed by e-mail and confirmed by the Villa owner that pick me up from the bus Viazul. She did not come. I waited for her for 15 minutes and went alone. Location of Villa were poorly marked on the plan on hostelsclub.com site, only came courtesy of a person I met on the street.The owner pulls in a variety of travel services giving only the price without any details of what specifically wages, but for breakfast for 4 CUC makes me infuse the same sachet of tea a few times. I strongly advise against.

This property was recommended from friends of mine who stayed in 2011 and I am really happy I listened to the advise.

I cannot personally give a higher recommendation. Both Gladys and Maceo are great hosts. They helped a lot.

Also Gladys's cooking is amazing - do not miss a chance to try it and I can honestly say - the best we experienced in Cuba!

So don't hesitate, just book it!

They over booked their house and kicked me out. I was happy to leave because I found a better Casa down the street with nicer people.

If you do stay here, do NOT book anything from their house. The family is a bunch of liars who will tell you anything so that they can make the sale and get a commission.

When we booked a car from Vinales to Trinidad they said it would be a direct private car straight to Trinidad with AC and that we can stop whenever to take pictures or go to the bathroom. When the car showed up it was a van with no AC filled with people crammed on top of each other. Which wasn't bad. but then they drove us to Havana because we are supposed to switch cars. But instead they drove us around the city for over an hour because the driver wasn't there.

Everything they said was a lie.. Take the bus. Do NOT Gladis she sucks

Gladis is really pushy and will make you taste her food or book a guide to the park, but overall, she's a nice person. The location is good, the villa is pleasant and the mojito is amazing.

I was moved to a sister, the place was very good, the only drawback like it seems in all Vinales the pushing hard of their break fast or dinner, which are very big to justify the high price and one can only eat at best half of it

We really enjoyed our stay at Maceo and Gladis! We took the horseback riding tour and had breakfast (twice) and dinner (twice) at the casa. A lot of the food and drinks comes from their own garden.
