My review about the casa: Hostal El Caribe | Trinidad | CubaThis was the best casa we have stayed in. Mainly because of the people. Ada, Olly, Michael and co. were BY FAR the kindest, sweetest, fun, realest - just BEST - people we have met in the whole of CUBA. It were the best three days of your vacation. It's so refreshing that people are just sincerely NICE, without a hidden agenda (a.k.a. CUCs). We had a great night with them at the Casa la Musica, danced the night away with Ada (63!) till 03.00 A.M. It ended at the front door of their casa, drinking rum and talking about anything (although we don't speak Spanish and they speak only little English, communication was no problem at all!). For me: it was a rarity, to meet people this nice in a country that - in my humble opinion - needs to rethink the way they should treat people. Ada and Olly now exactly how to treat you, and make you feel at home. A lot of owners of other casa's we have stayed in can a learn a lot of these wonderful people. It made us realize: it's not the wonderful beaches, it's not the wonderfull landscapes, it's not even the food (definitely not in Cuba) that makes of breakes your Holiday: in the end it's the people. And Ada and Olly definitely made our Holiday! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!

My review about the casa: Hostal El Caribe | Trinidad | CubaOur stay at hostal el caribe was great. Ada, Maykel and family were wonderful hosts, very friendly and warm people. We were traveling with our 4,5 year old girl and they made those four days in Trinidad very special. The position of the hostal is great, 2 min walk to the park and close to the old center, but still a little bit away from the crowds. So we could enjoy a quiet evening on the balcony and watch the real Cuban daily routine in the morning. Ada and Maykel were very helpful, organizing taxi to the beach or bici taxi to the main square. We would definitely recommend this casa!
How was your room?: The room is great; actually we had the whole upper floor. There are two rooms and one bathroom. Rooms are very comfortable with air condition and a fan, so even though we were there in May the night temperatures were very comfortable.
How was the food they offer?: The food was excellent; we had breakfast every morning, which was served by Maykel at our balcony. We got a different breakfast each morning. We also ate great fish dinner.
Other comments: Ada and Maykel thank you again for your help and kindness. We are glad we stayed at your casa, which made our stay in Trinidad even better.

My review about the casa: We had an excellent stay - Ada and family were wonderfully hospitable and friendly, and the apartment was comfortable, clean and gave us plenty of space. Air conditioning and ventilation ensured a comfortable temperature and good nights' sleep. The balcony gave us an engrossing view of the spectacle of the daily life of largely non-tourist Trinidad: the horse-drawn carts, the bike bread and fruit sellers, the 1950s cars. It is well-situated for exploring the town and accessing the railway 'station'. Thoroughly recommended.
How was your room?: Comfortable, ample space, especially as there were only two of us which gave us a 'spare' room.
How was the food they offer?: Excellent: breakfasts saw us through the whole day and offered an interesting variety; dinners were similarly generous and well-prepared. All as served with charm by Maykel who was most helpful throughout. The food was really good value: after eating 'out' on the evening of arrival, we chose to have all meals at the Hostal and certainly had no regrets.
Other services they offer: Laundry, which was done immaculately by Nicola and a real help as we were spending three weeks in all travelling. 
Maykel arranged and booked a taxi to take us to the beach one day; also, bike taxi pick up and return to the bus station.
Other comments: We were attracted to the Hostal by the article in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2015/aug/09/best-bars-restaurants-havana-trinidad-cuba-bed-breakfast-owners
We weren't disappointed!

Hostal El Caribe

My review: We stayed here for four nights in Feb-Mar 2017. We loved our stay at El Caribe--lots of space, very clean, friendly hosts, and a short walk to the historic center of town. The two of us had a room with a queen sized bed, as well as access to a second room with a bed and a stocked refrigerator. We had a private bath as well. In addition, we had our own outside balcony around two sides of the building. We ate breakfast and dinner on a lower level balcony. Our bedroom had air conditioning, which felt great at night and blocked out the minor street noise. The second bedroom did not have AC. The breakfasts were huge with fruit, eggs, bread, coffee and juice. We ate dinner at the casa one night, and it was delicious (10 CUC per person). The host, Ada Silva, and her nephew were welcoming and friendly and helped us make a dinner reservation at a nearby restaurant.

Casa el Caribe

My review: Our time in Trinidad was perfect! The hospitality of Ada and her grandson Maykl was outstandimg despite the language barrier! They showed us the way, arranged taxi's, bicycles and were so friendly. One day I got sick and Maykl gave me té, helado and brought in a friend which used a towel ritual to get the fever away. The next day I felt 100%! When we left Ada gave us a necklace and bracelet, so sweet! It was our best casa experience and breakfast in whole Cuba! Also thanks again for Marga who made this reservation possible and neighbor Herman for his kindness!

With kind regards,

Rolf and Anna

How was your room?: Perfect! Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, lovely balcony and we really loved the chairs (a good idea for our own house :-))
How was the food they offer?: Delicious, great variety, fresh, really the best we had in Cuba!
Other services they offer: We rented 2 bicycles!

Hostal el Caribe

Hostal El Caribe | Trinidad | Cuba My review: We loved every bit of our stay at Hostal el Caribe. From the moment we arrived it was absolutely perfect. Ada and her family were so welcoming and by the end we actually felt part of it. We had the whole top floor of the house to ourselves which meant we could use one of the two bedrooms store our luggage. We had seen the balcony on the pictures before we arrived and it was truly one of the best parts of visiting Cuba. We spent many an hour sitting on the rocking chairs, with a cold beer and just watching the world go by. The apartment was cleaned every day and there is a tremendous view out of the bathroom - I've not had many showers with such an amazing view. The case is perfectly situated, only around 5/10 mins walk from the main square and within easy reach of all the restaurants. The first night we got there we weren't too sure of where to go so Ada's son showed us the way. We went to the beach one day and it only cost around $7 for a taxi (which takes about 15 minutes drive). The breakfasts we had were huge and there was always a great variety which kept us filled up for most of the day.

Hostal El Caribe | Trinidad | Cuba We were travelling to Cienfuegos after staying in Trinidad and Ada helped organise our taxi for us to take us there (they even helped organise our taxi from Havana direct to the casa as well which made things so much easier). It was such a wrench to leave on our last day but we have so many great memories of staying at Hostal el Caribe - it was definitely our favourite part of the trip to Cuba.

How was your room?: Was perfect. Had a fan and air conditioning so was never too hot and with having both bedrooms, plenty of space.

How was the food they offer?: We only had breakfast but it was always varied with plenty of choice. Had the best mango I've ever tasted!

How was the food they offer?: Very good.

Hostal el Caribe, Trinidad

My review: Had a really great stay here. Ada and the others were very nice hosts. Very close to Trinidad centre where there were lots of restaurants, but also far enough from the city centre to be in a reasonably quiet residential area. The terrace where we could sit in the evenings was a real bonus.
How was your room?: Great - big. We were given two bedrooms so you could stay here with up to four people. Private bathroom and effectively a private balcony which wraps halfway around the house.
How was the food they offer?: We had a Cuban breakfast there every day which was brilliant. A plate of fruits, coffee/tea, bread with ham/cheese/tomatoes and a variety of eggs/omlettes/croquettes/sausages.

Hostal El Caribe

My review: We were welcomed to this casa with the warm smiles of Ada and Nicholas and delicious juice. Our second floor two bedroom apartment was complimented by classic front and rear terraces for sun or shade and a great view of the lively streets of Trinidad. Delightful bathroom, a fridge kept full of water, soda, beer and wine, and air conditioning and fans.
Every morning we were greeted with a nourishing breakfast served on the back terrace in a wonderful environment. We chose to enjoy some evening meals there, as well. Delicious!
The best part of our stay was the host family. The language barrier seemed no problem at all. They were so welcoming, gracious and generous with their time and contacts. They knew when we wanted to visit with them or leave us to our privacy. We ended up changing our plans to travel further on, so we could stay in this wonderful place! One evening, they invited us to accompany them out for live music and libations on Nicholas's birthday. It was such a fantastic night. They made us feel like a part of their family, and we can't wait to go back!

How was your room?: Lovely. Very comfortable, clean and cool.

How was the food they offer?: Delicious and varied dishes.
