Such a great feeling visiting this hotel. Their hospitality is so god. You feel at home..I just love the food they serve especially sea food. simply mouth watering. They serve such heavy breakfast you just cant resist. I just love visiting this place. The sea view rooms are very nice to stay if you get.

Good hotel, with decent food. We were greeted with a bottle of wine in our room, being a regular guest. The staff is very cordial. Ensured that we got a good plateful of whatever we wanted even though we were late for the buffet breakfast. I wish the rooms were a tad bit more spacious though.

A group of 8 of us stayed here for 4 nights in February after travelling around india. Some of the group loved it as it is a good standard well run hotel. On top of that we had the swimming pool to ourselves nearly the whole time as it doesn't seem to be strongly touristy. Breakfast was very good. I... More
