It was recently renovated, spotlessly clean, quiet, a great kitchen, private ensuite rooms with all the amenities--AC, hair-dryer, yet retained its classic character. Both Donny and Roberto, the managers, were very nice and helpful. Roberto went above and beyond when we returned for our second stay at the end of our trip, and we got lost driving in and were quite late.
