We stayed in this hotel during 15-Aug holiday. This is 30 years old property but maintained well. Beach is attached with the property and nice place to enjoy with your family. Food quality is good and cost is also reasonable. Only complain I have, towels should be changed regularly. Those we had in our toilet, was old and smell bad!... More

Very relaxing place and has easy access to the beach which is one of the best part about the hotel. The property is very well maintained and has a tennis court too though we didn't use it. However, the standard rooms could be slightly bigger for the amount they charge. Around 6.2K per day on a weekend. The service was... More

The is a very comfortable resort on the coast and with direct access to the beach. The rooms are spacious and air-conditioned, the restaurant is excellent and I can personally recommend that diners sample the wonderful appams (a type of bowl-shaped rice pancake) cooked on the spot by the chef at breakfast time. If you don't fancy swimming in the... More

Overcrowded, especially on weekends when they open it up to outside partiers who occupy the beach, get drunk, and play loud volleyball outside your room. Pool is small and feels very crowded (and over-chlorinated). Staff is nice and tries their best, but badly maintained overall. Playing ground (for soccer, volleyball, etc) was full of rusty nails. A kid in our... More
