Stayed only 1 night, got a beautiful spacious room with a big comfy wooden bed. The view on the bay was magnificent and we didn't have any loud neighbors, so we had a very pleasant evening and slept really well. The breakfast spoilt the whole experience though. When we came downstairs, we found some fruit (apples, oranges, bananas), some low-fat "yogurt" (activia mostly) and little boxes with cereal. There were jugs of milk on the tables but no bowls for the cereal. When the owner came down to the room, I asked her for some tea. She told me to sit down and wait. We were in a bit of a hurry, so we wanted to eat some cereal, drink a pot of tea and run. The nice lady was attending the two other tables in the room (both already enjoying their cooked breakfast), clearly overlooking us. She returned to us in 15 minutes (!) and asked what we'd like to have for breakfast. So I repeatedly asked her for a pot of tea and some bowls for the cereal. She seemed offended and told me, that the bowls get brought in with the cereal and we weren't supposed to take the cereal boxes from the basket ourselves. Then she took some additional time and we finally got the tea - 25 minutes after I asked for it, and we got the cereal bowls in 30. She slammed it in front of me and did not bring the forbidden cereal boxes.
It is a real shame - the place is beautiful, but the breakfast attitude ruined the whole experience. Definitely won't return.
Oh - and the wifi reeeally sucked in our room, could get connected only in one area of the room (2 laptops, 1 ipad - not a hardware problem on our side).
