I arrived to the hotel in the evening and I was given the so called Deluxe Cottage Room No. 110. After about 15 mins, I saw 15-20 local boys crossing my cottage and going out through a passage which... More

Hotel is good with good sea facing rooms but very poor housekeeping, no proper curtains on windows, no proper bath etc. However rooms, bed, room facilities etc are good. Restaurant & food is very good with good staff like Mr. Ananth & Mr. Anil. Views from the room balcony is great with roaring sea waves sound is great to enjoy.

Room had a nice view from the balcony. Restaurant looks like a temporary setup with some tables and chairs. Food that was served in the buffet dinner wasn't any good. An example of a terrible service was when I called from my room asking for a bottle opener, I was asked to go and buy from an outside shop as... More

Apart from it the hotel also has its personal beach and swimming pool which adds as an advantage to it . The rooms are big with a huge balcony ahead of it facing the... More

The view behind the hotel from all the rooms is just beautiful. The sea is very close. Swimming pool isn't that well maintained. And vegetarian food is not that tasty. They must concentrate more on food part.
