If a 4.5 rating was an option, I'd probably give this that, but without that option I chose a 5 owing to the friendly owners.
Let's start with the negatives. The place is about 20 minutes walk from the centre of the town, with a sizeable hill to climb on the way home. I see this as the price you pay for a cheap pool, but the lazy may find the walk on pedestrian unfriendly roads a little annoying. The beds are a little firm for my tastes.
On the positive side, the rooms are large and clean. Some of the rooms have a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The pool is also clean, and for the most part we had it to ourself. Given the town is quite dense, and its hot in late summer, the pool was a welcome relief. The bathrooms were clean too. I'd characterize the breakfast as better than I'd expect for a small guesthouse. Finally, the whole family was very nice and helpful. There is a little bar next to the pool where you can get beers and snacks.
Parking is a major issue in town, so it was more convenient to have ample parking at the house. Since we went on road trips most days, the house was a great home base.
f you expect margaritas from the poolboy this place may not be ideal for you. But if you want a clean, friendly, relaxed location just outside town for less than 100 euros, this place is a good option.
