The wi fi is good, the bathroom was modern enough, the pool was as expected, the sun loungers were good quality and the courtyard area to the rear with tables and chairs was attractive. There were two of us for two nights and we had a room as opposed to a terraced house. The stairs and walkway leading to it were shabby and chipped. The room was a fair size and although it had a large modern window it was wallpapered and quite dark. There was no balcony or terrace. The air conditioning was effective but in the heat and sunshine of August it wasn't a place to spend any time.
The extended family owners seemed nice enough but their kids spent a lot of time in the pool at the expense of clients and on our second night the courtyard was given over to a large family party. All in all this seemed rather cynical and made us feel uncomfortable and like paying but second class guests.
Perhaps both the hotel and the booking agency should be honest enough to make clear that the owning family expects to make full use of the facilities.
