The room was large, but needed a lot of TLC. No air conditioning - just a fan to stir the overheated air. The door unto the veranda lacked a lock so someone had provided a length of wood to drop into the slide to stop it being opened. Cleaning was so efficient that only those areas in the centre of floors got cleaned - not the corners of the ensuite toilet.
My wife and I like to sample foreign food - but to serve poor quality streaky beacon and burned fried eggs with partially cooked crepes etc every morning was too much. The fruit juices were not only not recognisable, but were undrinkable.
I doubt if they had a chef as they would not have put their name to the over cooked meat masquerading as steak, the pile of bones as chops and the pork hamburgers which were served up for dinner in the evenings. Any self respecting resturant kitchen would have been ashamed of the poor quality of the food! The staff, with one or two exceptions need to be told that holiday customers wish to see happy people rather than surly long faces.
As for 1 ero per 10 minutes for computer internet access or 6 euros to access wi-fi in the lobby and a pay by slot TV in the room - what century are Hovima, the owners of the Santa Marie living in ?????
