The Casas Particulares Experience
Highly recommended and extremely popular, Casas Particulares (often referred to as ‘Casas’) are fully-licensed private bed and breakfast accommodation, with many offering a more boutique hotel-style stay. The recommended properties in our portfolio consistently attract excellent feedback from guests and for many are a highlight of their holiday in Cuba.
Clients looking for a high standard of accommodation need not shy away, as upmarket Casa choices can be equal to a boutique hotel, allowing discerning travellers to sample the ‘real’ Cuba and authentic accommodation, without compromising on comfort or style.
Whether you are looking for an entire house exclusively for your party with a cook on hand to prepare fresh homemade food, or just a room for yourself and the opportunity to meet other guests in the communal terrace, lounge or dining area we have a wide range of options to offer.
All the casas in our portfolio have private bathroom facilities and air conditioning, and we hand-pick our Casas to ensure they are well located and central.
We work with the same Casas regularly and inspect them frequently in person. We know our hosts personally face to face, and build close relationships allowing us to confidently sell the properties we use.
With literally thousands of Casas throughout Cuba, guidance from our experienced team who know our portfolio intimately, is highly recommended.
Casas are usually booked on a bed and breakfast basis and most offer evening meals, packed lunches, and drinks upon request for a small additional cost. Breakfast is normally included and is usually continental style perhaps with a selection of breads, preserves and butter, water or juice, yoghurt, cheese, teas or coffee as well as the highlight which is freshly picked seasonal fruit such as pineapple, papaya or mango. In addition, boiled, scrambled or fried eggs are sometimes offered and even perhaps ham.
Where casas offer lunch or dinner, portions are usually large, and freshly homecooked hearty fare. Normally soup to start, followed by chicken, pork, fresh fish or lobster with salad, plantain, or potatoes, and traditional rice and beans. Desert is often fruit, ice cream, and custard style flans.
Our team are on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
