8/10 Very good

When we arrived at the hotel, Erin greeted us. She was lovely - her relaxed but welcoming nature made it feel more homely. The room itself was nice enough. The mattress was comfortable & rain shower was incredible. I loved the balcony view of the sea. Where things could be improved is some noise reducing insulation (because street noise at night was extremely loud); the bathroom sink barely drained & the continental breakfast was expensive for what was included.

8/10 Very good

We enjoyed our stay here. The room and bed were comfortable, and the continental breakfast (extra fee for our room) was good. The host was gracious in accommodating our late arrival, and literally “left the lights on” to welcome us to our room. We did find/kill a couple of small bugs in the small bathroom. Other than that, all went well.
