My one-night stay at Laurena contained both positive and negative experiences. First of all, Anne, the solution-oriented lady in charge. She was great from start to finish.
My room was ready when I arrived, cold water and ice in the fridge, the aircon had already been on for a while so the room was pleasantly chilled. The room was OK, a bit basic and dated, but everything worked: Aircon, fridge, shower, safe, etc... However it is old and a bit worn. The mattress had a very uncomfortable kind of plastic sheet(?) under the regular sheet, making me sweat all through the night. I wish I had taken that off.
The wifi did not work at all when I was there, despite Anne's efforts to fix the problem with the internet supplier Lime. Great effort, but no wifi, too bad for me.
When I went for breakfast in the morning, I waited and waited for the chef to come and talk to me. He did not. Then I got word that he was too busy to attend to my breakfast! What??? I marched out, but only after making it blatantly clear that I consider such behavior unprofessional and rude.
I went to my room and packed, and as I was about to leave, the phone rang and there was Anne offering breakfast and being apologetic about chef's behavior.
Would I go back? Probably not. You can walk to Green Roof in 10 minutes, and it's much nicer. Laurena is closer to the jetty and the center of town though.
