Our first stop at this nice old and small guesthouse. The swimmingpool, although small was a welcome sight when we first arrived and after our rounds of golf. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with the restaurant reservations. Breakfast, although not a huge continental choice, was, as far as we were concerned, very nice. The guesthouse was within... More
