Very cute place, nice and rural and beautifully done. Good service by the owners. The only shame was that there is no AC and the fan didn’t work so we had a very sweaty (And mosquito ridden) night.
"An oasis of peace & quiet"

The hotel looks amazing, the staff is super friendly, the breakfast is amazing and the pool is beautiful. I was on my own, but didn't feel alone.
