I had spoken with lovely Wendy on the phone, the owner, who unfortunately had the weekend off that I arrived. Unfortunately I caught David during what I assumed was his favorite TV show - first when I was considerate enough to call and say I was running late on the road (his response very disinterested and cold), and upon arrival he could not be bothered with showing me around other than vaguely pointing in one direction or another as to where the bathrooms and showers were - and after making sure he got my payment and quickly bringing me to my room, rushed back to his TV so as to not miss his program. Walking in and out over the weekend I was not particularly welcomed with open arms. Not saying I am Mr. Social or exceptionally outgoing but I do enjoy the odd conversation and friendly host who might be curious about me or my trip or willing to give a few tips. So I kind of got the creeps. But other than that the room was fine, bed comfortable, place secure, neighborhood good and central, and PE does have lovely beaches if you head out towards Recife and there is a really cool bohemian neighborhood that kind of reminds me of Melville in Johannesburg but tamer called Richmond Hill. As far as staying at Kings again - only if the lovely, friendly owner Wendy were there during my stay. If she were there I would have definitely given at least 4 stars.
