I decided to stay at this resort as their rates were quite low and I had read some good reviews on another traveler's blog. But I guess, the resort has changed since then. The room I was given had a dirty bathroom, really dirty and blocked. I have no idea what the people employed there do other than sit around... More

Havelock is a costly place to stay. But this is a decent place. No luxury. Clean n decent. There are rooms and cottages as well as rooms. We were for 2 nights so choose a room. Did not try food. Used to eat at the small shack near the market. Awesome food!!!

We requested them to change the rooms,which they didn't on the pretext of that the rooms were pre booked,which wasn't the case.their only intention was to push through those... More

7 km off the ferry point on the eastern coast, on Vijay Nagar beach no 5 is El Dorado. Most of the eastern coast has clay deposits between the beach and the sea, but offers fantastic sunrise views. This is true for El Dorado, too. El Dorado is economical, starting with eco-huts at Rs 900 in peak season and half... More

I didn't book my hotel before what was not a big problem because on the island there were only few tourists. I went to El Dorado and it was such a... More

The guy 'in charge' here was rude and unhelpful from the moment we arrived and became shouty and aggressive towards me when I questioned some charges when we checked out (which be warned is at 8am!). Cottages are ok, very hot inside and lots of cockroaches, but it's quite cheap so to be expected. The location is great, beach no.5... More

Had to stay here as everywhere else was booked out for a couple of days, it was the only option that was closest to my dive school (dive India). The bungalows are old and shabby and vastly overpriced for what they are (900rs per night). The bathrooms were pretty grubby. Worst of all the bungalow had an infestation of bed... More
