No signage on entry door. Had to buy my own ice tray. No locking screens on doors, so you left your door open. Positive is the friendly, courteous, and knowledge of the Staff, Antonio is helpful and Awesome, great asset for the owner

No sign outside; difficult to find. 'Full' breakfast option is a scam; you only get a voicher for $4 discount. Poor construction; you can hear everything in adjacent rooms. No hot water in sink. No screens on doors; great climate outside ... but can't enjoy without letting in many mosquitos. Very few rooms have A/C; travelers should read the fine print on every room before choosing. The 'blackout' curtain is just a pull down shade that doesn't cover the window. Overall, beautiful courtyard ... but everything else about this property is disappointing. Would never stay here again
