“Beautiful room, unfriendly owners”
Reviewed 5 October 2005

The room was gorgeous, exactly as shown online. We had such a relaxing time reading on our balcony and staring out across the ocean, as well as drinking wine in the jacuzzi in our room! The setting was unbeatable, and the breakfasts were delicious - very gourmet. The young women working there were very sweet and friendly. However, we got the vibe that the owners would REALLY prefer we not be there. The male owner actually picked up his pace and ducked through a door and locked it behind him once when we approached. We were just suprised and disappointed with how "avoided" we felt. Also, I agree with another tripadvisor reviewer's comments about the heat. We got to our room and it was probably 90 degrees. We turned on the a/c and left for two hours so it could cool down. All in all, the good food and the incredible rooms/setting make it totally worth it.

From their web site you would think that the place was great. Not so! The hostess is not friendly and should consider another line of work - maybe a prison warden. Their were not able to accomodate our simple requests and she was was very rude. I do not recommend this place.
