Very nice, as everyone has said. The location is good, the rooms are pretty, and the pool is nice. And the staff was very friendly. I personally found the friendliness almost too much and a bit artificial/formal, but we had just been at a much more basic home-stay.
My only complaint was that our room, and it looked like most rooms, did not have any real windows to the outside. The one window opened to a courtyard where many people would walk by or hang out, so you couldn't really leave the shades open. I prefer more natural light. Was good for one night, but wouldn't want that for a long stay.
They were also doing construction during the day, which made hanging out at the pool loud. I guess because it was tourist off-season.
