So, we have only high regard for the staff. They are friendly, smart and anxious to help. Yesterday they were able to lone us a converter to charge our camera and a corkscrew...for our in-room picnic! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is very good and the location is quiet and convenient. Many thanks to Lucho, Kate, Ruben, Harry and the others who made our visit very comfortable.
