The best in the resort is the excellent and huge sea view rooms with huge balcony. Food is expensive and not upto the mark. The massage centre was very soothing. House keeping, Room service is very quick. Small pool but enough for a dip

This is in a no way a five star hotel. Honeymoon from hell after Uk agent the travel club over sold the quality of this hotel when selling as part of a package tour of India. Hotel facilities are more akin to that of a two or three star at max. Cleanliness standards throughout the hotel need to be addressed.
