We stayed here as a last minute booking as there was limited availability in the rest of the village. The reception staff were very welcoming but we were very disappointed with our room. It seems that no money has been invested in the hotel for a long time and the rooms and communal areas seemed very tired and outdated. The room was clean enough and the bed comfortable, but it definitely wasn't luxury or worth the $130 per night, especially when compared to the other great places we had stayed in elsewhere. Some serious money needs to be invested in this place before the cost per night can be justified.
