I am sorry to say that our 4-night stay at Nido del Merlo was not successful.
Firstly, we were put in an appartment that as they said "was only 50m from the main house" but it really was completely separated from the house, on the main road, it looked like the old appartment from the grandmother. The bathroom was renovated, but the rest was kind of outdated (nothing to do with the pictures they show in the website). You had to go back an forth for breakfast, for the pool, and felt like an outsider not belonging to the house. Of course this apartment was priced the same as the stay in the main house.
Secondly our 2-and-a-half year old boy was bitten by their dog, Spiccio, on the face. Two holes. Bleeding like hell. The owners -otherwise kind, simple people- did not even offer to take us to a doctor or a pharmacist.
What they just offered was to reduce the price of the stay by 25%.
It was a very disappointing stay overall. I would not recommend it, mainly because the owners reactions were not right in both cases. We are not very complicated people, but I felt cheated by the room, and not properly treated in the case of our little boy.
