Everyone was right, rude owners. We showed up a little before the 2pm and they wouldn't let us check in, in the high season I could understand but no one is really here right now. Forcing us to keep our valuables in the car as we killed time waiting for permission to check in. The pool is very small, it would be fine at a one room bed and breakfast but it's only usable by one group at a time here. The rooms were crawling with bugs, we did get bit. The beds are very old and uncomfortable, hard and loud. Get this, they don't even give you blankets. We had 1 (one) single sheet to sleep under. There are resident roosters that think 3am is an appropriate time to crow. There was a generator outside our window that kicked on and off all night. Worst night of our trip, and we've stayed in some scummy places so far.
