My family stayed at Casa Pombo five nights in August. The place is certainly beautiful, in an old colonial house very tastefully refurbished. Nonetheless the furniture is absolutely dated as if second hand bought, the "double beds" were about the size of a regular bed (about 120 cms) and really uncomfortable. The worst of it is that we were offered to have our breakfast cooked and served in our apartment (which was obviously quite convenient) and when we agreed we were asked for $200just to buy the food and $ 120 more for the cook, just for four days. Additionally the quality was remarkably poor and we even did not get the papaya we asked for.
The place is nothing but cheap, it should ay more attention to this details.
