I choose this place because of all the positive reviews and got very much disappointed. It is very true that Dave and his wife are very friendly people and the food served is good. The room I stayed in however was everything else than good. Upon arrival the water heater for the shower didn't work, though I booked some days ahead. 2 guys came to fix it but couldn't do the job. Another guy came the day after; now the water was hot but absolutely no pressure, neither on the hot or cold water. Sheets had stains, though laundered, dust everywhere, a missing console in the bathroom ( no place where to put amenities ), no closet in the room, just a bar in a niche with 2 (!!) hangers. After I saw the room I spoke to Dave specially about the bathroom, but he said it was like that since he had the place.. No move to better the situation, maybe by changing the room or similar. I stayed because I got sick the 1st night, otherwise I would have moved out. Location on the other hand isn't bad, close to the beach and not too far away from shops and bars.
