All other hotels were too dingy and the so called best rated hotels were not even facing the sea. During my walk... More

stayed in sea facing room and the view was really good. it was in the 3rd floor. staff were very helpful, breakfast buffet spread had too many options for veg and non veg, roof top restaurant and the hotel bar served good food and drinks. Mr. Basha helped us with everything, right person to be contacted.
