What struck me was the happiness which radiated from the walls... More

I stayed at this hotel in February this year. The hotel was very clean. The rooms were immaculate. The manager Saleem was very friendly, and couldn't do enough to help make my stay enjoyable. The hotel is in a very good location, close to the beach. I will be returning this year again, and i would highly recommend!

What a sweet hotel. I requested an airport pickup and the manager came to the airport to meet me. A personal touch I found so endearing. The bedrooms are very clean, I put a little vase on my balcony and the cleaner Sushama would fill it with fresh flowers every day.This hotel stands out because of special touches like these.... More

While this hotel is on the outskirts of the beach area it is a really good option for a budget traveller. The rooms and beds are clean and well kept, personnel friendly and helpful. The name can be a little misleading for people expecting a european type of "resort" so use a little common sense when setting your expectations for... More

We had originally planned to stay for three nights but left after one because this place was so bad and the worst place we stayed during our 3 weeks in India. Here's what's wrong - the surrounds of the hotel, too much litter, burning rubbish fires with smoke drifting into the room etc. The rooms - battered furniture, rock hard... More

The positive thing with this place is that the staff is helpful and friendly. The beds are extremely hard. The sheets may have hole. One of the room had cockroaches.The "resort" is situated at the back-doors of other hotels and restaurants, and they throw their garbage here and sometimes put it on fire. I can understand that someone on low... More

Hotel and room were very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. The location is excellent if you want to be near all the restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Nice swimming pool too. Only negative was the pressure to buy ayurvedic treatments from the in-house ayurvedic therapist, but apart from that, everyone else was friendly. You'll want to stay a long time once... More
