We spent two nights here and were very happy with the views and the friendliness of the owners/staff. We were not really impressed with the quality of the linens or lack of chairs for our room - we asked for some more so we could sit on our balcony and even though most of the other rooms were vacant they would not spare us 2 outside chairs and suggested we put the cumbersome wicker chairs in our room out on the balcony... Aside from the sparseness and mediocre quality of room decor it was a lovely place. We could walk down to the little town or up the hill to the reptile museum (awesome!) or the butterfly conservatory. The food was decent and the staff were all very nice. Once again, come here for the amazing views you can enjoy from your room or the bar.
