We were put in a downstairs room in the courtyard. Funky doors which you couldn't actually lock with the key (it was like a turn-knob lock from the inside only). You could also hear Everything and everyone...and unluckily for us some friends of the caretakers(owners?) were staying next door. We came in from being out all day to find the group sitting in the courtyard (right outside our door), the table littered with bottles of liquor, glasses, and cigarettes. The smoke was going into our room!
I expected them to quiet down, but at 10pm (on a Tues) they were still at it, with no consciousness of others as they were talking and laughing loudly.
We asked to be moved, and so they moved us to an upstairs room, which was actually quiet. But...the room was dirty: I found an old piece of gum stuck to the headboard right above my head, and the floor had these (felt like sand) pieces of stuff on the floor, which actually looked like some bug was eating the furniture piece...
When I went to take a shower there was so little pressure that even after angling the nozzle as best I could, I had to stand flat against the wall so I could get some on my head.
B&B is a joke ~ this is the worst excuse for a breakfast I've ever encountered.
Day 1 - coffee, choice of fruit loops of corn flakes, whole milk, oj, white bread for toast, butter & jam, pineapple and papaya (which ran out)
Day 2 - coffee, milk, same cereals, bananas & pineapple, brown or white toast, butter & jam
the caretaker or owner, whoever it is, Also smokes and the smell is their when you eat breakfast and I even saw her smoking in the kitchen (!) yuck
although they were nice, there are much better places to stay in town for the price
