Juana Odalys' and Leonel's place was very nice and looked recently renovated.
they have other rooms they're currently building so there are construction workers and masons around FYI.
they were both very nice and Leonel is an amazing cook. For the 1 day i was there, every time i saw him was in the kitchen.
When i got there Juana Odalys was still cleaning the room so i had time to play tea with their granddaughter. When i finally got the keys the place was very clean.
When selecting this accomodation i was told this was in Varadero but it is actually in Boca Carioca which is a 15 min drive. that would be a problem if the taxi rides from Boca to Varadero werent 15-20CUC each way.
If you're coming for the beaches and hotels/resort hangouts etc, it will cost you getting there.
If not, there is a beautiful brute beach about a 10-15min walk not far.
the communication was horrible. When i got to the Viazul terminal in Varadero, i tried calling the Number that is posted on this listing. I got someone very rud eon the phone, asking me to stop bothering her. Mind you i understand spanish perfectly it's the speaking part that is a problem. I asked if they spoke english they said no, i tried many times saying my name, who i was and why i was calling. the lady hung up on me and consequently i called no less than 20 times and i was sent to voicemail. I had to call another host in Havana, give them the number to try to coordinate. By this time i had been at the terminal for over an hour. Finally i get an address where im supposed to go, and now the taxis refuse to go there because they say they dont know.. then i must again have my Havana host talk to the taxi and repeat excatly what the person who gave the directions said. That's when the taxi drivers says its in Boca, not varadero and they wont go there its far. Wait another minute to find another driver willing to take me.
they do offer dinner for 10CUC, i had chicken and rice and some sort of delicious looking corn soup that i unfortunately didnt eat because i was too full
Overall they were nice i just wished the location was a bit more accurate and that the communication was better
