Luis, the owner, is a lovely man. He met us in the parking lot upon arrival, and Jose walked us up to our room. There is not an elevator so be warned, and the steps are interestingly fun to walk up but could prove difficult for some (only if you stay on third floor). Our room had a queen size bed along with a twin bed, and the balcony had two wonderful rocking chairs along with a table and two chairs. The beds have mosquito netting over them which we felt nestled under as we slept to the blowing winds of El Valle, the fan and the sounds of the birds and fireworks (there was a festival in town). Be forewarned that there aren't screens on the windows, and there isn't air conditioning. It reminded my husband of his summers staying with his grandparents when the nights were actually cool from the breezes and, yes, little bugs do come into the room. I have never stayed in a B&B room much less a hotel room without A/C and thoroughly enjoyed my room up in the trees. Luis would chat with us once we came back from our daily travels (in his house we would go to talk, and we met his friendly son), he provided us with delicious breakfasts (pancakes one morning and eggs the other), and we had a happy hour with the four other guests another night. The grounds are beautiful and lush, it is quiet and serene, and Luis made us feel at home. An exceptional place to stay when in El Valle.
