We really loved this place. It's charming, and our room (the second floor suite) was very clean, beautifully decorated, great view across the rooftop to the volcano. Karla's English is good, and she was very helpful, arranging rides for us and answering questions. She's not a native of Antigua, so we didn't find her the perfect person to help us plan our day, but she gave us brochures and helped us track down information. The rooftop is a fabulous place to spend an hour or two with a beverage and a book - the most amazing views of the city, of gardens, of the mountains. No complaints about the shower as I saw in another review - my husband took a cold shower because he turned it the wrong way, but I turned it the right way and had a lovely shower.
Breakfast was very good, although we were there for five morning, and would have enjoyed a little more variety. But good coffee and excellent fresh fruit every day makes me happy...they also made some really good salsa for the eggs.
I would absolutely stay here again. For us, this is the right kind of place - beautiful, clean, great bed, the right kind of charm to make you feel like you're someplace special. I am not a fancy chain hotel kind of person...I love these unique places that I remember fondly as adding to the vacation experience, rather than just a place to stay.
We had trouble with wifi when we first arrived, but Karla contacted someone to troubleshoot, and helped get it going.
