We booked a room and showed up on time. Upon arrival we were told that the water was infected and must be boiled; they gave us two bottles of drinking water; (we did not complain although it was concerning). They also supplied mosquito coils because it is difficult to relax in the swarms that occur on the patio. (Again no complaint from us because it was a one night stay - no big deal.) Shortly after arrival the power went out. We were told that it would be fixed within one hour and told to go out to dinner with agreement we could not stay without electricity. We went out to dinner but when we returned there was still no power. We also had no use of a downstairs bathroom due to it's malfunction and were asked to share a bathroom upstairs with all b & b "guests". By 10:30 pm there was still no power. I have to use an electric compressor to breathe at night (I have a potentially lethal disorder), so we had to leave to find alternate accommodations. The owner verbally promised not to charge us when we left but she charged our card anyway. The owner was not honest about the charges, claiming initially the booking agency would not defer charges. (The agency denied this when we called them.) She then changed her story and stated that we dirtied the bathroom (which we never entered) and dirtied the sheets (we only rested for a short time on the bed cover - never turned it down.) We had no light except for a flashlight! If you want to risk bacteria in your water, no bathroom privacy, no electricity and a rather nasty lack of integrity then this is your place.
