Potential. Its an often used word, but one that certainly applies to Margarita House. There are aspects of this place that are first class, but also things that let it down. With a little more work this place could be great.
First the positives. The staff are great and simply can't do enough for you. It's in a quiet location and the gardens and pool are a lovely place to relax in the afternoon or evening. The downstairs lounge is extremely nice and the dining room whilst lacking ambiance serves up perfectly good food. The bedrooms are large and clean with plenty of storage.
On the down side the housekeeping service wasn't great as dirty towels were taken away but not replaced and the same for the coffee mugs. There was also no fridge in our room which meant nowhere to keep drinks cold. There was also nowhere to put a wash bag in the bathroom other than on the floor despite the bathroom being a very good size.
Maybe I'm being picky, but Margarita House really could be oustanding if they could just iron out the rough edges (and maybe get some doors that fit properly).
