The place is infested with Lúsmý (Ceratopogonidae) during July and the landlords do not provide any service at all regarding the issue. No fans, no afterbites, no repellent - nothing. We had to flee after two nights since we couldn't stay there anymore even though we took all measures into our own hands.
Aside from that, there are more minor issues e.g. only 6 chairs to sit on and dine even though you can rent it for 8 people, the hot tub only has 2 settings (either 38 or 41) so it's hard to control it on warmer days, snacks/breadcrumbs on the floor when we arrived and something more that I forgot.
When I told the staff about this all I got was "So what, I'm also bitten and there's nothing we can do about it. If you came here and there was no sun during your stay, would you also complain in that case?" Well, the owner said that the next time we would come he would give us a 15% discount if we ordered dinner at their restaurant.
What a nice compensation, that will surely heal the +50 bites I received.
Never going there again during the season, so if you do, be prepared to be bitten.

Come on are you kidding? Most Icelanders know about Lúsmý, it has been in the news for last 3 years.
You think we should repay you cause you got bidden? Come on.
Maybe you should not travel at country side this time of year, cause this bugs leave after August...
