I chose this from the internet where the pics, like the glossy brochure of this establishment, paint a very different picture.
The room was dirty - I had to get a broom and sweep out previous occupant's pubic hair from the floor. The toilet didn't flush properly so we had to ask him for a bucket. There were cigarette burns in the shower curtain and the bedspread. The bed was horribly uncomfortable.The furniture was broken and the towel rail had been pulled off the wall. We had to ask for crockery for the kitchen. The decor was tired and outdated.The pool hadn't been cleaned for weeks (see pic) and he wasn't going to bother just for us. Admittedly it was nearly the end of the season, so the owner, a pleasant enough chap, was out to make his last few Euros and didn't care about much else.
This is a shame - if he just put a bit of money into repairs and some new furniture then the place could be a real find. He's let it degenerate into a really shoddy doss house.
