    Superb

    L'hôtel est une ancienne bâtisse magnifique dont la restauration a su respecter le charme de l'ancien, l'authenticité. Sa situation géographique est parfaite. Sheila, qui nous a accueillis est adorable.

    Personalen mycket bra och serviceinriktade

    Smutsigt Ofräscha ostädade golv, hann få svarta fötter mellan dusch och vita lakan!!! Strilande vatten i duschen Flera lampor i rummet ur funk -åtgärdades inte trots påtalande. Var fanns poolen? 22 branta trappsteg till varje plan x 5=110 steg till rummet Dyr mat , små portioner, "glömde "tequilan i frozen marguerita .... Sammanfattningsvis: tummen ned, tummen upp för receptionen
