Granted Villa Marita is only 2* BUT...
Poor 'Reception' (hallway with table and information leaflets - but no signs/personnel) - had to wander downstairs to kitchen area to fine someone to check-in. Very poor security. 'Office' closed in the morning so key left with someone in the kitchen - no proper check-out (luckily we had prepaid through Expedia, so were able to leave promptly).
Room extremely shabby, NO wonderful view (except over rooftops), crumbling balcony with chairs you wouldn't choose to sit on, garden not well tended, swimming pool empty (and dirty).
En suite... tiny cabin containing a shower and toilet which shared a TINY area for feet. This was the only morning on a 3-week road trip when neither of us took a shower! Sink was in room, just inside the door (couldn't get in/out of room if someone else was at the sink) - and plumbing was alarming! The cold tap produced hot water; the hot tap produced cold water. Didn't stay long enough to check the electrics!
Only positive feature was free parking, and relatively easy access when travelling south via the Gottard tunnel.
