Its Very hard to get a deluxe room even. There is a Restaurant. Decent food with a reasonable price. Only Buffet available. As this... More

We had such a good time in Dolphin resort! Our cottage was spacious and very comfortable. The sunrise from the beach - one minute walk away was a very special moment for us. We hired a motorbike from the people on the lane to the hotel who were so helpful and it was very convenient and 400 rupees a day.... More

A wonderful place to stay with Vijay Nagar beach outside the room... Very reasonable Government Accommodation. But requires booking well in advance. Restaurants nearby are a walking distance. Most of the time one sees foreigners around and less of Indians. Feels as if one is on a foreign destination.

The best thing about the resort is the location...located in Vijayanagar beach and right on the edge of the sea. Almost all cottages are sea facing though the sea may not be visible from some of the cottages. The cottages are spacious - has a flat screen tv, tea kettle, small refrigerator,sofa and a small balcony. For the location and... More

Luckily got the mobile no. of Mr. Emberson from the net after spending few hours. After several calls and requests, helped in booking a super deluxe room. Resort location is absolutely perfect. Room was... More
