“Big expectations not met”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

A room within a house at four star price- The room my boyfriend and I were put in was off the living area which included the main entrance, "reception", dining room, and kitchen. It's a slowly aging regular family house, literally! The door was thin wood- I could hear the owner receiving and responding to text messages in the reception. No feeling of privacy- because there wasn't any. When the owner/manager asked what we'd like for breakfast (15 Euros) he shrugged at the mention of eggs and said it would be a little difficult.

There is about 200 degrees of good view, but in remainder there is another of their "villas" under construction, and shabby neighborhood behind.

If what you got was actually stated outright and the price was appropriate it would be fine, but don't go expecting what you should be getting for the rate they have.

Beside that there are no indications for the house, the most important is that in booking they propose suites and they are only little rooms, I reserved the suite Sunset, as the name indicates should be a suite (which means a room plus another space, sitting room and bathroom but this is not even a junior suite) in the web they say the room is 22 sm but they don´t speak about the rest, regarding service, there is no service so nothing to say, I finish paying more 170 eur to have the big suite, which is not a suit but a little apartment with a big room, a sitting room and second room ridiculous and only one bathroom.
the white doors are full of finger prints !! brown!!!!

Room Tip: if you go choose only the second room never the others!! Tehaupoo room, is not a suite but is the ni...

This place is not only a rip-off but also a scam. Although it calls itself a hotel it is nothing more than 4 poorly-maintained and dirty spec-houses. The slouching, flip-flop wearing so-called manager gives you a croissant every morning, as well as juice from a container that was open in the fridge when we checked in, and for this plus a small room with smudged walls they charge you 400 euro. This place is at best a bed and breakfast, but with less privacy since the aforementioned manager, who is also the maid and fetches and"serves" the croissants, sits in the hallway outside your door on his computer all day. The stay was like spending a night in a housing development's "model" home - no service to speak of, a house at the far end of a construction site, loud renters in the next house, strangers sharing at your breakfast table, and five-star prices... Steer well clear of this one.
