Not quite as nice as 3 years ago
Posted Apr 25, 2015
We were surprised upon arrival at Villa Antigua that I had mistakenly reserved a room for 1 when I knew full well that my wife would be traveling with me. Recognizing my mistake I said I would gladly pay the difference. Upon checkout I was informed that the difference would be substantially more than I had estimated or later, upon examination, more than the difference between the Expedia posted rate for a double & what I had paid. No big deal but sort of leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
Otherwise we like the hotel where we have stayed before. Indeed we got the same top deck room we had stayed in some 3 years ago. The hotel still has a nice feel to it, but was a bit barn like this time as it was scarcely half full. Plus the wear & tear of 3 years are evident & I would say that the owner needs to do a thorough pick-me-up. Little things: toilet seat loose, door btwn bathroom & bedroom off center and very difficult to close, the catch devise on the shades broken so shades couldn’t be kept open, shower curtain rod not properly fixed in place, the outdoor furniture need revamping. Little things. Plus like all but the best hotels a desperate need for more electric outlets – in today’s world we all have electronic devices that need charging. In Villa Antigua’s case all that would really be needed is to replace all single outlets (they all are) with double ones.
Breakfast fine albeit not particularly notable
