The room was fairly cheap, and the staff seemed friendly enough, however their English wasn't great and we had a few difficult conversations. Unfortunately the owner was away during our stay, but we did have contact with her via phone when the staff working couldn't understand us properly which was nice. I would say if we could have had face to face contact with the owner we probably would have had a better experience and rated 4 stars.
The room was good, and the shower was great, however it had an opening on one side that was kind of weird, it meant we heard a lot of conversations from the room below us!
We found the food was probably better on the beach, tht being said it wasn't bad and it's an easy option.
We would probably still recommend this place because it is a beautiful building and it's only 5 minutes from the beach.
