Housekeeping only makes bed and vacuums every three days, but fresh towels are always available…we really enjoyed our stay there. The pool is closed due to Covid and hasn’t been filtered (presumably so midnight swimmers won’t be tempted) but the courtyard has a fire pit and lots of sofas if you want to stretch out.
