The whole place is outdated and the breakfast is a dusty little corner in the front office. Barely anything for breakfast. The front office smelled musty and like fish. As soon as we saw the room, which is outdated, with mismatched furniture, and looks like a dungeon (also with no air conditioning) we knew we couldnt stay. After seeing some pictures of others guests who have stayed, I think we made the right choice
