There are two listings for this guesthouse and I wanted to make sure that travelers viewing both posts got this heads-up!
Smiley is a beautiful guesthouse, nice garden, nice rooms. The owner is very nice. I really enjoyed the dogs and chickens (maybe not the rooster at 5am).
To me, bad service implies that it is inattentive and slow.Food comes really fast (if they are in a good mood, if they are not they will make you wait for it and glare at you) For the most part the kitchen staff are down right mean! They made no attempt to even hide their disdain for us.
As volunteers we paid up front for 3 meals a day through our program fees. Perhaps this is why the treat us so poorly?
I would move guest houses if it were possible. I have another month here and every time I head to the kitchen I have to psyche myself up for it and brace for their dirty looks. (Sometimes worse, one staff took my friend's order from her room number notebook and then threw it at the window! How dare we ask for meals we have already paid for!
Good luck getting their attention when they are watching TV (which seems to be the majority of their day)
If you are staying long term try to find another place! Their attitudes are just not worth it!More
