I got electrocuted in the shower trying to change the temperature, so did my dad, and when my mom took a shower the water stopped running.. The guy at the front desk said he would fix it but he just stuck the green wire that was hanging out into a hole and it fell out again later. Everything is very haphazardly wired and when you plug things in to charge they kind of vibrate like the electric current is wrong or something. The lightbulb in our bathroom also went out. The room always had a smell like piss in it that seemed to be coming through the bathroom window the opened to an adjacent building? Bathroom by pool did not flush. At breakfast, there was a really obnoxious tourist that totally ruined our breakfast because he would not stop talking to us about himself. Not the hotel's fault but really soured our breakfast. The narrow spiral staircases can be difficult to go up with heavy luggage. The receptionist on duty when we came was not helpful at all and just kept talking on her cell phone when we arrived (I think this is a cultural thing but I find it extremely unprofessional). It would be nice if the pousada sold things like water, ice and beer, maybe also some light snacks and had a bar by the pool. The location is great but can be very busy and hard to find parking to unload your luggage. Plan to check in before late hours in the night on weekends.
Nicely decorated, very colorful, big variety at breakfast (very rich food), pool, backyard, sitting areas, art, quiet at night for sleeping. Fun and funky place. Night shift guy accompanied us personally to a bar late at night to make sure we got there okay, which was very nice of him.
