Disappointed that tv in living room did not work. Also no cell phone signal at all nor WiFi.. but otherwise very good.

The place was clean and the kitchen utensils were sufficient for a family of five. the place is peaceful and there is privacy. the staff are friendly and always at the ready to help. but as guatengers driving to the coast for the first time, it was a long trip. it would be better to stay at least for over week, excluding travelling time.
