We stayed in April 2014 and had such a great time here. The rooms were clean and cozy as well as the public areas. Shaila (excuse spelling) the manager was so welcoming, friendly, professional and extremely helpful and nothing was a problem for her. In all a great hotel, walk to the main North Cliff area is a lovely little... More

Very plain and nothing to do with beach. Quite far away from the cliff. No hot water, no nice pillows and not the best breakfast. Plus the place where we got the breakfast was looking more like a place to wait for the bus. After one night we changed our location.

Do not expect resort facilities. The Haiwa Resort is a B&B with basic facilities. It has an unusual high standard of cleanliness. There are no gounds outside at present. But they do have massage on site & free wifi. The rooms & bathrooms are clean & comfortable, a reasonable size. No toiletries in bathroom just soap. Breakfast is taken on... More

The service is terrible. No phone, no tv, no person to help. we were told that breakfast would not be given. We had to show our booking which clearly mentioned breakfast. Breakfast served was of poor quality. They refused to clean our room, till we forced them. There were no mats, bathroom tiles were broken, hot water was not available.... More

Did not get pick up at the airport after having more than 4 emails to confirm pick up. Not most comfortable if you arrive at 4am. We end up taking taxi to the hotel. The room that we boked was good size with decent shower and great air conditioner. The only thing that we did not like was the bed.... More

We booked over new year and paid 2700 rs on the 31st . unfortunately we did not like the room as other reviewers. I would raccomend to avoid the small ground floor rooms.Because they are ddark and smelly. It can even at this location become quite noisy in early morning due to guest leaving and arriving. The staff was friendly... More
