Maintenance Problems
The best was very comfortable and the view was lovely. However, we really were disappointed with the price due to no usable/ maintained/ clean pool. The nightly price was too high considering this as well as a broken oven handle & a disintegrating/stick/dirty hairdryer. Luckily a deep cut or worse injury did not occur when cooking since a sharp wire was the only way to open oven. The hairdryer had been used by a former guest who wrapped toilet paper around the handle which was still stuck to the nasty handle. I wrapped a hand towel around that to also use it. This towel was then removed the next day of our 2 PM stay so the problem was known, but not addressed leaving an impression on us guests that we weren't worth the $20 to replace it. Too expensive per PM cobsidering these 3 things: no usable pool, unsafe oven, nasty hairdryer.
