“not what it says on the tin”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A few facts on Villa Cerro =The hotel is not a B&B or we missed it for 2 week and so did everyone else , your towels will only be changed if you ask or go and exchange them yourself, which is not a problem as the cleaner is there all day on the lower floor, its states that the hotel is close to the marina , old town square , and a few other beaches this is not true unless you class close as a 15-20 minute walk up one hell of a steep hill, you can go down hill but at a risk as its a dirt track most of the way, you can see the marina but its not close, we walked into old town or the beach each day and got a taxi back which is 5 euro's then walked back for the night out, anyone not wanting to walk into town would be spending 20 euro's on taxi's each day, you could stop at the hotel but no one did, there were some lads having a barbecue one night and you can get snacks or drinks from the vending machine's water was 60 cents cola was 1 euro , everyone we spoke to in the hotel felt that the distance was way too far to walk to any of the beaches, their was internet 1 euro for 20 minutes but no wi-fi, this hotel is ok if you have transport or are in a large group and can share taxis, it was cheap but it cost you in the long run ...

We had been staying for two nights in June and we really enjoyed.
The owner, Miguel, is a very kind person and he helped us a lot. The place is nice and quite with a wonderful view, the price is very good! Thank you
