"Although the house in itself is quite nice with good-sized rooms, the dishonest attitude of the owner made the experience unpleasant and I would therefore recommend travellers to go to one of the many other nice casas around that are also much cheaper.
Firstly the owner told us that the cheaper rooms were all taken and we therefore had to stay in one of the more expensive ones. We later found out this was a lie, as a number of other rooms were still free. (I'm still shocked at the rudeness of lying to clients like that.)
Secondly, the owner wanted to force us to stay at one of his friends or business partner's house in our next destination and despite my assurances that we didn't need his help for booking, he simply called the person while i was waiting for the bill and gave me the phone so I was obliged to talk to the person, which was very uncomfortable, as I already had another (also cheaper) booking. This kind of insistence is very uncomfortable and even if I didn't have another booking, I wouldn't have stayed at that place out of principle.
Thirdly, the owner was extremely pushy about having meals at his place and almost forced us to eat there. He also pretended that we booked breakfast and wanted us to eat it there although we hadn't told anyone we were going to have breakfast.
Many of the other reviews tell the exact same story about this person, so don't mistake his initial friendliness for genuine sympathy. He is simply a businessman who thinks that tourists are a good way to make a bit of money." steffiberry, brussels 200617 tripad visor
