Good location
We only stayed overnight at La Ninfa on our way from a cruise to another island. Our room was very large, with one king bed although we requested 2 beds. I was told upon check in that if we wanted another bed in the room it would take time. Since we were only staying one night, it was not a big issue. The property is in a great location, close to the pier and main street of the town. From what I observed, the property was clean and generally well maintained but a little dated. The one issue we did have was our door did not close without A LOT of jiggling, pulling, pushing, etc. Since we were only staying overnight and left the room once for dinner we didn't make an issue but it was a bit alarming that there is a room with a faulty lock. This is a pretty basic repair and necessary part of a hotel room.
