I am a hotelier, having worked in hotels. So, usually when I go for holidays, there is a minimum expectation and I tend to pardon a lot of issues just because I am aware of the back slogging work that goes in hotels.

I appreciate Complementary Cashew nuts & Wine. To improve- Night Buffet dinner not upto the mark, though it is cheap(Rs 250). Food flavor not good. Same with breakfast .... More

We tried to adjust as per their policy with timing for pool, restaurants and breakfast.. They will ensure the Staff fingers you all along and messed up your enjoyment. Hospitality... More
