Communal bathrooms and a complete 'Camp' feeling was the initial impression. The rooms were not kept clean every day and they were very small or rather cramped.
The price was outrageous for something of that quality - they should not be able to charge more than 60-70 dollar for what they offer.
On the other hand - the place is perfectly located with a great view over the bay and the surrounding garden and especially the main room was perfect for gatherings and entertainment.
The kitchen was not working/open which meant not even breakfast was served to the guests?
All in all - get your act together and renovate this charming place and it could be one of the best hotels on the island.
