Electricity is a big problem - goes out every half an hour. Staff need to manually come over and start the generators. Swimming Pool is filled with dirt and insects. Looks filthy and highly unsafe. Rooms are so very small especially for the pricing. No space for anything apart from the Bed. Toilets are styled like the olden days. Rooms... More

Well, this place has got potential to be good. It's located near the highway and is easily approachable. Decent rooms with bright colours makes it lovely. Swimming pool needs to improve and water needs to be cleaner. But, if one only wants to go Pondi to drink and sleep, then this place is fine !!'

Do not trust this resort. They try to extract money from you by any means with external help too.food is not great. Not much variety. The beach s not a private one and it's a poorly maintained shore. Located on the side of Tamil Nadu between pondicherry borders
