Complaints include the plethora of spiders attached to the windows, a bevy of overworked, underpaid college students to run the place, paper-thin walls allowed our neighbor's snoring to keep us up most of the night, aided by the ability to hear every word (& raucous drunken giggles) emitted from the veranda, a symphony of creaky floors and an ancient bed with a big valley I was obliged to keep crawling out of, showering in constantly changing water temperature, very expensive dinner prices (we didn't even order an entree and the bill was over $100). On the plus side, the grounds are peaceful and inviting. The bicycles and paths are great fun. The beach is a short walk from the property and pleasantly uncrowded. The dinner menu and fare are sparse, yet quite delectable (especially the sticky date dessert concoction) and the coffee is delightfully strong (most of the time). Overall, I'm happy to have experienced it once, but probably wouldn't return due to the poor sleep quality and high prices = poor value.
