Hard to describe this place. A great setting. But the rest was average at best. Our room was small, the sheets and furniture are worn out, no mattress pad on the bed, and the bathroom was awkward and less than clean. Hot and cold reversed but curiously the red/blue (hot/cold) markings on the faucets are where they should typically be. Don't get a ground floor room as you'll have absolutely no privacy as other guests can and do stroll right by your room and all times of the day or night, and because of that you need to keep the curtains closed. And that's too bad because it makes the otherwise well-lit, airy rooms dingy and stuffy. Don't plan on sleeping past 7 if you get a room next to the breakfast area-noisy. The upside is that the breakfasts are pretty good, although they typically serve only between 7:30-8:30. They advertise that they serve their own coffee, but all the plants on site look dead. The on-site restaurant is more than adequate for Atenas, and the service was quite good, at least when we were there. The somewhat remote location is what it is, but you'll need a car or cab to get anywhere. There's no internet or TV which may or may not be a bad thing, just be advised. The owner seemed kind of eccentric or aloof or just preoccupied with selling the place, but yet he was all smiles just the same. Bottom line, this would be an adequate place to stay on the way to somewhere else, but not much more.
