From the moment that we set foot there we had a homely experience. Friendly staff went the extra mile to make sure that we were comfortable. We arrived very late ate night and the song of birds woke us up the next morning. The beautiful maintained garden with all the trees gave us the experience of paradise. We spent many... More

However, it is a short walk from the beach. Food: Food was average. Nothing great to write about especially They could do with some better preparation of the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and as it was so hot at the beach it was great to be able to laze around the pool in the shade. Quiet, friendly and cheap for a hotel and food was good. Close to beach and cliff tops bars and restaurants.

We stayed at Akhil for 9 days in January, and it really was a splurge for our family. And totally worth it! We got a great deal on expedia for a standard room, and breakfast was included.
