You cannot drive to the site. An uphill slog from beautiful Mar de Jade, next door, to the dining area, which does have a fine view of the beach, far below. From there, to get to your room, there are 63 steps cut into the steep hillside. Steps that are of uneven heights, uneven stone, poorly lit, and with no banisters. Dangerous for little kids and anyone with knee or breathing difficulties.
The room had thick walls and small windows, at least half the lights and plugins did not work and wi fi was unavailable. There was a rundown, overall feel of not caring.
However, the stalwart, cheery Francisco was great and Rosa is an excellent cook. We were there six days and spent most of the time at the welcoming Mar de Jade.
