Just spent 5 nights here. It's a space to retreat from all the sight seeing and has some nice relaxing communal areas. Our room was tiny and on arrival a little disappointing but we adjusted and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room is for sleeping, showering and recharging not for hanging out in( need earplugs). It's kinda got the camp ground feeling which is cool and its a great stay on a budget.
There is a car/bike hire 2 mins away which we used twice and a handy food market about 4 mins away. The pool is sweet and the view is lovely for that side of the Island. Our room had its own personality with a couple of strange trip hazards (door stops) located in impractical places and we lost power twice but we are easy going and didn't mind.
The service was fantastic. We were collected free of charge from the airport, the power the second time fixed in 1/2 an hour (the first out was area wide, the second a light fault in our room) and when I mentioned it was my wife's birthday I was given a bottle of bubbles on the house. This made up for any of the other....... Oddity's!
We didn't have the breakfast and someone mentioned some old fellas sitting around staring. It's a family business and I think he's the Grandad of the family and he keeps an eye on things. He does stare a bit but just get on with it, who cares.
There are some beautiful walks near by, one around the Caldera to Fira (1 1/2 to 3 hours, we did it 1 .25 one way power walking and 3 stopping to take photos...we are super heroes though!!) we would stay here again.
