After a few days here my friend and I were referring to the place as "Fawlty Towers"-albeit without a Basil.Enough said?Admittedly,we did have spectacular views of the titular ocean as well as mountains and the rooms were clean,though a little tired, and the beds comfortable.Staff were all very friendly and helpful,especially those in the bar and restaurant.However,reception staff were straight out of the T.V. Torquay mould.We asked for a second key to our suite and they had a duplicate made except they copied the key to an entirely different room.My wife telephoned with important family news on several occasions-once they informed her that there was no one of my name staying with them,on another that my group had left when we had not!Other members of our party had their belongings moved to another room whilst we were we out for the day.
But the views and position made up for these upsets.I just wouldn't go back.Oh!Okay I would for that view.
