When towels get threadbare, you could replace them. Or, like this Hotel, PATCH THEM! I kid you not! We were scheduled to stay 5 nights. Europe is big on using shower towels for a couple days in a row, so our habit at all the locations we stayed at, was to get clean towels every other day. They say if you throw the towel on the floor they'll replace it with a clean one, otherwise hang it up. I tossed my towel on the floor after using it twice, and when we got back that evening the towel HAD to be the same one, all folded up and placed on the rack as if it were clean. When you see a thread bear towel with patches over holes, you just know if it's the same one. And they picked it up off the floor and acted as if it were washed?
I mean come on, what are the chances of getting the same towel? The bed was hard as a rock. I like a firm bed, but this was bad. No box spring, just a very firm mattress on a frame with slats of wood to hold it up. Next, it was October, not exactly the hottest time of the year, but since the sun beat on the windows from the west all afternoon the room was still stifling when we got back after 10 pm. The AC couldn't get the room any cooler than 84 degrees, and that by morning! (29 Celsius)
We tried to open the windows and let the evening breeze in, but the neighbors had a dog barking ALL night long, and we were awakened each time someone up stairs used water. You'll have to take a water bus to and from the main islands. We knew that going in, but the place looked so cute, we thought it would be worth it.
We got up at 8:00 am the first day there and ordered some Cafe Americano, hot. We left at 10:00 am to go find our own coffee! The staff could not have been any less helpful if they tried. Their recommendations for restaurants were terrible and by then I was so fed up that I was suspicious the restaurant owners were friends of theirs. I'd tell my ex wife to stay there!
