On the plus side, the location of the hotel is excellent and I enjoyed chatting to some of the staff who were very friendly and helped arrange a trip to Kanyakumari. My driver for the trip to Kanyakumari was also a pleasure to deal with. However, the rest of my stay was awful: 1. Despite arranging in advance, no driver... More

We ended up staying here longer than we expected, due some illness. Staff are very friendly. Pool is poorly kept and dirty most of the time, due to no rules about people wearing dirty clothes in the pool. Room service, when really needed was marginal, food below average. Location is great. Rooms clean, at least ours was. Can be noisy... More

We checked into the hotel for a 3 night stay and were greeted by very friendly reception staff... And that is where the niceness ended. Breakfasts were cold and they could not provide toast! Aircon on the other hand was not cold. Towels were dirty as were the rooms and it took 12 hours to give us fresh towels when... More

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights and encountered multiple issues throughout our stay. I do want to point out the friendly and helpful front desk staff and the boys who do the random bits around the hotel made it easier for us to stay here. We were always greated by smiles even when we had complaints/suggestions. Firstly... More

Whenever I review a hotel or attraction I always try to stay objective and offer other Tripadvisor members an honest opinion, highlighting both the good and the bad whilst offering feedback to management both positive and critical in the hope it will help to improve business for the owners and managers and improve the experience for guests.

If you have found this hotel STOP and book it. The breakfast is limited, the bathroom is simple and the large bed is really two small mattresses put together but all other things are spectacular. Your can walk to many many restaurants within seconds. The view of the water and sunset is incredible. If you are arriving by plane, you... More
