I decided to give Afia another try (November 3- November 7, 2011)…and this time it was much better service. In fact, the owner confronted me about my aloofness during my stay and I told him about his rude/crude behavior when I was there last year. He apologized profusely and was extremely accommodating this time around.
The only down side is that the price of food in their café has dramatically increased and the water pressure in the shower was minimal.
