We reserved a larger room but received a room just big enough for the bed. The bathroom smelled so bad we had to keep the door shut so we could breathe. Breakfast served by the nuns was homemade and good but they were all like deserts. The place is extremely hard to find. The nuns were nice but this was one of the worst places I have stayed. Cantbelieve it was rated so high.
