To: Everybody who read this review: We have 15 years of experience in this business and we continue to strive for excellence. We are very glad to received reviews from our guests. This demonstrates we work hard to satisfy our customers’ needs. In this case, at the beginning of her stay, we noticed that she was afraid of going out and stayed in the room for a long time that is why we treated her as a relative. We even invited her for lunch or dinner many times and charged breakfasts for a lower price, taking in to consideration that she was going to stay in the house during a long time. When she returned to my house from Cienfuegos, she brought a male friend with her, and wanted to spend the night together, even though we strongly suggested not to do so. Because we dont knew him, but she did not take our advice. When we were informed of the missing money after some consultation we suggested that the police be informed. This was quickly turned down by the guest again, against our recommendation. We have never been informed of any missing money from any other guest, this accusation is a mystery to us. If it did happen we are surprised that we were not told about it! We are sure, we have a reliable and loyal staff. We have security cameras in all public areas to monitor the premises 24 hours a day. We never ever had problems like this before and we are sure, it doesn't happens in our house. Our house is complity safe and entrust for everybody. Please feel free to research all our reviews on Tripadvisor. Best regards, Dra. Nora Esquivel and Family
