Revisited (last stay 2005) for three nights. Nothing changed, still made by the wonderful view of the ramparts and sea from the upstairs front rooms. Rooms small with just adequate bathroom. Good service with excellent breakfast and tea/soft drinks on order.
Advertised Wifi only works at one desk in the corridor. Mosquito nets need repairing (or replacing) No alcohol permitted, but there are plenty of other places for a beer. Most annoying feature- the persistant hard sell to visit the family jewellary shop by the entrance.
Best feature, rooftop garden with spectacular views, and a resident tortoise.
