I'm a bit surprised at all the rave reviews.
The good: the hotel has a huge lounge area, both inside and outside, several lounge chairs outside by which to enjoy a summer evening. Free, secure parking, in the centre of town. Many (if not all) of the rooms have small balconies, with views of the hilltop towns surrounding. The room was spacious enough. The showers had good water pressure.
The bad: no air conditioning. Perhaps I should have read this in the fine print before booking, but I somehow missed it. When I inquired, the reception desk sternly stated that 'we don't need it.' She was wrong. We were quite warm in our room. We couldn't leave the shutters open too much because of the light, bugs, and early morning birds. I awoke at least twice in the night as teenagers were leaving the local bars, and loudly making their way homes. The beds were 'european firm'.
While it wasn't awful, there might be better out there.
