Don't trust the ratings advertised, this is not a 3-star guest house. The two big hairy dogs are everywhere, in the entrance and in the dining room while you are having breakfast you can see and smell them. They are not shy. Their big toys are all over the place (be careful because you might stumble on them and end up in the "pools"). Even the rooms smell like wet dogs. The cleaners are not trained, we saw them squeezing the dirty mop with their bare hands. The two swimming pools are so small and dirty that they are more like ponds: no sane person would ever swim there.
During our first night we suffered ants infestation in our room and the porter didn't seem to care, he said "there is nothing I can do about it, I'll leave a note for tomorrow". We had to insist to get an insecticide spray. The towels in the room were dirty with hair, there were stains on the chairs and the rugs were very dusty and worn. The headboard of the bed was covered in dust and it was filthy. Wi-fi connection is only in the lounge and limited to 10 Mb per day. Breakfast was the only positive side
Even though we like animals they are not appropriate in a place like that. The photos you see on their website are really not representative of the situation there. We would never book another room there.
