Como una familia, nos hemos sentido como en casa. Con magna por solo quedarnos una noche, aprendimos mucho sobre Cienfuegos y sobre cultura cubana, sobre todo, hemos aprendido sobre los valores de su gente. Muchisimo enriquecedor. A nuestra familia cubana se queda la promesa de que cuando volvamos a Cuba aquí nos volveremos. hace 9 meses

Cienfuegos was a marvellous stop in our trip. So as for the city than for "la casa": Marilope Hostal. Gabriel's mother and father were very kind, helpful and service was perfect. The breakfast was particularly tastefully. And, a real luxury, Marilope Hostal is just on the other side of the street from the bus station!!! hace 9 meses

To Cristina & your dear husband. They are the best hosts I've ever me during my four years' Airbnb experience. Cristina is kind and sweet. She is really caring about everything, giving us guide about the town, helping us with the driver and planning the trip. I'm impressed by her English, very good, and all the effort she put in communication. Her husband is a great chef! Although his English is not enough for communication, he always wears the best smile and make me feel back at home. The house is clean and they are really nice and helpful. Just like my parents. Cienfuegos is my favorite city in Cuba until now and thank you for the hosts! Love you!!! hace 10 meses
Cristina at Marilope Hostal is the best host I have ever met on Airbnb. Her husband and her have made our Cienfuegos trip and unforgettable journey with the hospitality, kindness and helpfulness. Her husband made us several wonderful meals and was incredibly friendly and caring to us despite the language barrier. Cristina told us so much about the history of the city and the must go places. She went out of her way to make sure that we are having a good time and that we are safe during our trip. We were constantly amazed by their kindness while we were here and we couldn't ask for a better place to stay here at Cienfuegos. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience at Marilope Hostal hace 10 meses
