We stayed in room no 8 downstairs. The room was big and very basic. The fans were old and didn't really do anything to cool the room. One of the beds had the most uncomfortable mattress ever and the pillows smelled horrible. There were no curtains in the window so we had to keep the storm shutters closed all the time. When it was raining water came in under the door and was running down the wall in the middle of the room so you had to be careful not to get all your things wet. The bathroom was big and clean enough. The water smelled really bad at times but there was plenty of it.
The yard is nice but there aren't enough seats or hammocks for the guests to relax. They could make it really nice with some effort if they wanted to.
They refused to give us toilet paper in the evening because we hadn't paid for the following day yet. After paying the next night they finally gave it to us in the morning. So if you run out of tp the night before checking out you better go and buy your own.
The woman, Naomi?, working in the reception was rather unpleasant to deal with. All other people seemed very friendly.
