This was a very short trip. The hotel is ok for a 2 day kind of trip. Rooms are very basic with no frills.The staff is extremely friendly and always ready to help. Food is good. Cleanliness is ok. Rooms were cleaned everyday and bedspreads changed, the toilets needed better cleaning though. Location wise its awesome, right on the beach.... More

If you want to relax and chill out avoiding chaos and crowd, this is the place and also very well placed in terms of proximity to the beach . Not extravagant or heavily ads/promotions dependent, this place will be superb for their hospitality and services. Staff behavior is warm. Enough space in form of lawn, sitting area, rooms are large... More

There are six cottages carrying two rooms each encompassing an extensive garden with varied eye candies from rabbits to birds and a children's park and... More

We stayed in this hotel on our very first visit to Mandarmoni. We got little confused over the selection of hotels over there when we finally booked this one! And we never regretted! They have excellent service, sumptuous food, free car parking, 24 hour a/c and power backup, big and clean rooms, sunny veranda, cottage style architecture, nice facade, close... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The main thing which attracted me is the empty space in this hotel. They have not made it look clumsy with construction.It has Big rooms and big bathrooms along with very polite and courteous staff. The food was very good. Overall it is highly recommended.
