Reinaldo and Yurisa are very pleasant hosts. Not intrusive, yet very helpful if you need assistance with anything (including finding other casas in other Cuban cities). They are not pushy at all in trying to sell you extras, yet they can provide them if you want them. E.g. in your room you will find a fridge with water and beer in case you feel like sipping a cold beer on one of their amazing balconies; they can arrange transport to the bus station for 3 pesos or serve you really tasty meals for 16 pesos for 2 people.
The house is clean, the room and bathroom are big and you can go to the bathroom from your room without having to go through any common area, which is very convenient.
Reinaldo told me he has been in this business for 20 years, and it shows. The service you get is very professional while at the same time maintaining the warmth you would expected from a casa particular.
Finally the location is perfect because the house is in between the main tourist square and the main street of the town, both of which you will need to visit if you go to Cienfuegos. It's central Cienfuegos, not Punta Gorda. In Punta Gorda there are really fancy and spanking new casas particulares, but I was happy that we were centrally located as punta gorda is more of a place for night outs and it is not very convenient as a place to stay.

It is a very nice place, close to the center of Cienfuegos. But far away enough so there is very quiet in the night. Reinaldo y Yurisa is very nice, helpfull and kind. The house is clean, and the 2 balconies has very good view. One balcony in 1. plane, the other on top of the house.
The room is big enough to have 2 dobbel beds, and the bathroom is also very big.
The food you buy in the house, is better than the food you get in the restaurants in Cienfuegos. It is a very nice view to enjoy while you having breakfast or dinner.
I can recommend to call the day before arrive, to confirm the reservation.

Reinaldo and Yurisa were very friendly and the room and food were excellent. Parking, although in the street, was secure. The roof-top terrace has superb views across the city, which is lovely.

Although Reinaldo and Yurisa speak little English, their daughter is readily available by' phone, and lives nearby, and her English is excellent.

Stayed in this casa for 3 nights with my girlfriend. In short: a great experience. Reinaldo and Yurisa were very hospitable, really did an effort to make us feel at home and show us around Cienfuegos, which is a verry beautiful town by the way. And the food.... The best we have had in Cuba. The location of the casa is perfect, right nearby the centre of the city, which is not very big anyway. And the casa itself is clean, spacious and has a beautiful rooftop terras. Would really recommend this place to anyone,

The casa is in a very good location, only a few blocks from Parque Jose Marti and a few blocks from the Paseo del Prado.

The large room was well ventilated and clean. There was a window, a stand alone fan and an AC unit in the room. The attached bathroom was also very large and clean.

The breakfast, which was served on the back terrace, was ample and very delicious.

There are TWO roof terraces on the property. One in the rear of the casa, where breakfast is served, and one up another level. Both were really nice and had great views.

The hosts were very kind. They helped us find a casa in La Habana on New Years Eve. Every other casa owner we asked was unable to do so, but Yurisa came through. Can't recommend them highly enough. Would definitely stay here again.
