Room was big with good storage, kind of reminded us of a hospital room. Bed sheet could have done with a fresh clean and the bath didn't have a plug, so no bath. But clean, with friendly, attentive service. We found accommodation the next day with just as good facilities for half the price.

This resort is located on Hawa beach. The rooms are not up to the mark and service is lethargic. Not recommended for couples. The location is awesome however. If you are vegetarian then you may find issues in getting good food

I chose to stay at this hotel for two reasons, proximity to beach and the price. The rooms are spacious but lack basic amenities and also old fashioned. The owner has done a facelift outside the property. the pool is shared with one more resort nearby. The pool was in good condition. Not recommended for couples. Okay for family stay... More

This hotel has been a facelift only on the front side visible from main road. All the rooms and interiors are still old. So don't get fooled by the 'cover of the book'. Rooms were mediocre irrespective of the price. Regulators of fan and AC were non-existent. So you got a choice to be shivered either by AC or fan.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights (4th and 5th Dec, 2013) and it was a nightmare. Although the room was spacious, it lacked basic cleanliness. The towels and bed sheets were stinking and it appeared as if it wasn't washed since a week. The staff was the worse. We had our breakfast included in our stay, however the staff... More

The staff had all changed from previous year but this is normal. The room we stayed in this time was the same as before but... More

Booked this hotel via Hotels.com. On arrival, the staff were not expecting us and took several hours to find us out two pre-paid rooms. Eventually two rooms became available. Both rooms were basic, with a rusting fridge. Half the lights didn't work, the aircon unit was deafening, the towels looked like they hadn't been cleaned from the previous residents. The... More
