Pros: The property is beautiful and well appointed. Our room had air conditioning which was very handy as it was warmer than expected when we visited.
The property is generally unstaffed although someone was available by phone at most times. Communications with english speakers was not easy but greatly appreciated.
The location is beautiful but remote from Velas.
Cons: This property was not where it was advertised to be as shown on booking sites. It's well on the other side of the airport from Velas.
Our room, having stone walls was somewhat damp and had a bit of a odor. This bothered my wife more than me but was noticeable.
The property is accessed via three separate keys, two of them are very large bladed keys for the front and back doors of the main building and one for our external room. These were difficult to use and very uncomfortable to carry. The keys and doors themselves were difficult to operate and open.
