My girlfriend and I stayed here. Hands down the best experience we had in Cuba! The host is amazing, the food is spectacular and the beach is literally a minute walk away. Would absolutely stay here again!!

8/10 Very good

The owners were quite friendly, the breakfast was simple but good. The room was totally sufficient. The internet can be weak because of the remoteness of the place. There are better beaches in Cuba, the atmosphere in the small village is nevertheless quite tranquil.

We couldn’t recommend this casa enough, our hosts were incredibly kind, helpful and friendly, they organised whichever activities we wanted to do the night before and even allowed us to borrow their snorkel equipment. The room was in great condition and wifi and bottled water was available for our use.

Best place to stay in Playa Larga
Fab location, 100m from the beach. Spotlessly clean. Lovely hosts, interesting vet who set us up with everything including excursions for our stay in Playa Larga. Veranda with rocking chairs overlooking lagoon is a wonderfully tranquil setting for breakfast & evenings. Can't recommend enough. Felix who runs the dive school & snorkelling is awesome, very safe & recommended.

10/10 Exceptional

Stay was very nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommend their breakfast as it is very good. Parking on site, very safe. Room was large, with a fridge. Staff spoke Spanish with some English and I spoke English with some Spanish. We had NO problem communicating. I did improve my Spanish speaking. Definitely a must for a visit. Also mingle with the Cuban people for better understanding of their culture and life. They are a very happy and friendly people. Please have their dinner. We enjoyed a fish supper. Host caught the fish himself earlier in the day on the sea (spear fishing). The host also provided shots of Cuban rum, the best there was. We had an excellent Chile wine with the meal. You cannot get this good Chile wine in Canada. Note, the host is a veterinarian. The property is on the water. The view was beautiful. The room had a terrace which we used during the evening for a peaceful and serene evening. We only stayed one night as it was a stop on the way from Trinidad to Vinales. You must stay a minimum of two days to really appreciate the area, still untouched by commercialization. Enjoy this while you can. You must visit Playa Girón,the famous site of the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion, 30 minutes from Playa Larga. Also visit Museo de Playa Girón. The museum tells the story of the 1961 failed invasion, marking an important aspect of Cuba’s history and its relationship with the US. The story surprisingly accurate is told from the Cuban perspective.

Ismail and Katy are great hosts! They are really kind and we felt very welcomed here. Ismail took us showed us around, took us snorkelling and even displayed some of his talents as a magician! We would definitely recommend anyone to stay at Casa Pelicano.

excellent room with the best host of cuba
the room was perfect, very spacious with private bath shower. was in the first floor with very nice view to the sea.. everynight we were sleeping with the sound of the waves.. what else to ask.. but what was really unforgettable is the help of the host Ismael.. he helped both of us with different issues we had and we really owe to him.. i hope to return again here and see him.

2/10 Poor

Una verguenza para Cuba
Dificil de localizar. Habia que subir a la habitacion por una escalera de caracol imposible de hacerlo con maletas. Destartalado, sucio, con cucarachas e insectos. Sin ropa de cama adecuada ni toallas. Eran viejas y sucias. Las camas malas. El cuarto de baño sucio y viejo. Sin productos de higiene. Las ventanas no cerraban. Sin aire acondicionado.Desayuno malo con ketchut y mayonesa como unicos ingredientes. Una casa que es un asco y ademas no era nada barato. Una verguenza que haya lugares asi. Que pesima imagen del pais. Una pena

8/10 Very good

Nähe zum Strand war super; der Strand ok. Die Unterkunft war i.O.; der zur Verfügung gestellte Kühlschrank im Zimmer strahlte so viel WEärme ab, dass die Klimaanloge noch mehr Arbeit hatte. Das angebote Wasser: völlig überteuert; die Langustina war sehr lecker zubereitet, allerdings auch hier, selbst im Vergleich mit Havana, sehr teuer.
