Verified traveler

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We arrived at the OldWell hotel, checked in and after 30 minutes checked out. The grounds and beach are very nice. But the condition of the rooms are atrocious. The hotel rooms seem to be original, no upgrades have been done since the hotel was built. We got in the room and there were flies buzzing around everywhere. Probably because under the doors and windows were gapping wholes. There was no safe in the room, which worried me since the thin wooden doors and windows could easily be broken with minimal effort and I didn't know what to do with our passports. The bed felt like it was 20 years old and super worn. Needless to say, after 30 minutes and an emotional breakdown due to the condition of the room, we found another place and checked out.
