We were given what was described as the 'best room' at the hotel. In truth, it left much to be desired....it was next to the pool, making it the noisiest location there. Also, the bed was old, i.e. the mattress needed to be replaced long ago, as it was rock hard. When my wife mentioned it to the manager, she was told that we should do yoga! Ahem...she has done far more yoga than the person who suggested it. In addition, the sheets were threadbare. On to the bathroom....the shower curtain kept falling down & the water pressure was very poor. We soon realized that the managers were content to smooth over any shortcomings in the name of rusticity. We have traveled the world extensively & have experienced a wide range of accommodations. However, this operation takes the cake for poor value.
