We just returned home from a weekend stay at the Franciscan guesthouse. The location is great it is just a 15 min walk in to town where the shops are a 15 minute walk to the beach. The grounds are very nice with paths that take you around to different statues or out to the river, it is a very peaceful place. The rooms are not so great though. They are just like staying in an old dorm room. Wood paneling on all the walls , small. Tv and old mattresses. The rooms were clean though I was freaked out when I got out of the car by the room and noticed rat traps around the building. Breakfast was o.k nothing special. It cost us $170 a night for a room with a queen bed which was too expensive for the accommodations. If they spent some money on renovations to update the rooms they would have a special place to stay.
