Whilst the view is amazing, the rooms are small and awkwardly arranged - I had an overflow pipe going into a bucket in my room. And the basin in which to wash your hands is in the room, not the bathroom. Both my friend and I had dead flies covering our beds from the air con being turned on, the... More

Review has been written by a spiteful customer who was unwilling to stay in the room she had initially booked and was asking for a higher class room (one with a wider view with 2 french windows) for the same price, which was not acceptable. Hence after a lot of haggling and indecent behavior with the staff, she asked for... More

We love this place to wake up to a breathtaking view of the beach right from bed itself. We have stayed in other rooms along this beach earlier, but the views from the balconies of these rooms are amazing. To the left is a rocky hill towered by the light house and a sandy beach from rocks below, curves all... More

We had 4 days vocation here during December 2013, they have renovated the place and it looks really nice. Amazing view, wonderful location and the lights in the rooms are so romantic and suites the location. Thanks so much especially to Ramesh to keep this small hotel like a small home!

Positive things first: this place is located bang on the beach (although not a private beach) that is very clean and full of life. And that's about it. Otherwise, you cannot call this place a "resort"! There are only 4 rooms, which should be a plus here but unfortunately each of these rooms are in dire need of renovation! The... More

No doubt, the location of this place is excellent and the rooms are clean with a clear view of the beach and the light-house. So if that is all that matters to you then this place is highly recommended but look-out for surprises. 1) Not that it mattered much, but there was no one to actually manage the resort. The... More

I have cancelled another reservation and decided to stay here after reading many positive reviews. When i called Mr Ramesh for reservation, he assured us a beach facing room with balcony and i have received a confirmation for the same. When we reached there, we were shocked to hear that no rooms available. We have called him couple of times... More

I have some difficulty associating our experience of this guest house with the high praise reviews that are on TripAdvisor (and which were strongly influential in our decision to book here). First the good points. The guest house does have an exceptional location. The beach here is very fine and there are many shops and restaurants on the sea-front promenade... More
