    Great rooms, beautiful terrace with great view, but the staff weren't exactly the friendliest nor helpful. This may be due to inability to communicate in English - but hey... can't hurt to try and be helpful to travellers.

    ... found out that they would be sleeping in a room with guys and called ISE to make them change the room. Otherwise, they would have driven 10h to pick up their kids.

    ... amazing to view this colourful town across the valley.No breakfast or cafe here so thankfully I can make coffee with the great little water boiler coil I bought at REI in Seattle. Just need to buy a cup in town.A quick settle in and off we walk into the town armed with a map of the sites.

At El Bar, Aly--one of the waiters we know--escorted us upstairs and allowed us to choose between the loud dancing area or the calm, billiards playing area.
