If you have a really slim budget, then may be you can consider this place, but not for long stays. Saffron Beach Hotel is OK for spend-the-days' or small get togethers with friends, as the last choice.

It's terrible. No water, no glass, no soap, no fan, just a room and bed. Wash room is a hell. Room service also was unsatisfactory. Can’t believe room boys and managers too.

we had a get together on 15 jan 2014 we had to wait and call the waiters every time we need something. and then again wait for another half n hour until they'd bring it. even the buffet was not ready until 2.30 and the guests were checking and going. Afternoon tea , tasteless and very poor quality
