“2 nights/3 days visit to Mandarmani @ Aqua Marina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

We visited Mandarmani recently and stayed at Aqua Marina Drive Inn from 10th-12th August'12.We were overwhelmed with the location of the property and the best part was that we didnot have to take our car through the sea beach as we could just drive-in through the metal road and approached the property from behind.The sea was at a stones throw distance, with a wide and clear view from the rooms and the lawn, and the beach was also just a hop,skip & jump from the resort.The cottage rooms were spacious, neat and clean and had all necessary amenities required for a 2 nights/3 days stay.The resort staff were friendly - they were always available at a call. A special mention of their staff - Aloke who took good care of us throughout the stay. The children also enjoyed since they had swings and a big enough lawn to play.Food was brilliant, the fresh sea breeze along with the echo of the roaring waves splashing water on the sea beach kept us refreshed day long. We hyad a great time at Aqua Marina and look forward to be there soon.

Room Tip: Romm# 112 and 111 are strategically located - excellent view of the sea,lawn and close to the open d...

My earlier stay at mandarmoni was not as interesting as this time, and all this happened just because of the Resort "Aquamarina Drive Inn", built on a modern boutique resort concept. First of all i would like to say that all the rooms that they have are sea facing, during noon you don't have to come out to brave the sun, instead you can just chill in and view the sea, sitting inside the room. The roooms are quite spacious, the bed is king size, the bathroom is well maintained and thoroughly clean with all the amenities. the AC was fine. The attendents were prompt in providing the services, The lawn and the play area was the best place to stroll, though i found it a bit small. Mr. Bharat the receptionist was quite nifty when it came to arranging things not available with them. At the end i would say "i was smugged" Thumbs up to Aqua Marina.

Room Tip: PLease go for Room no. 101 and 112, (Royal Room), The view is unmatchable and unbelievable.

Reached Aqua Marina well before the check in time but the manager was quite helpful and arranged our rooms very promptly. Went there with my parents & wife. We booked 2 rooms (elite & royal). Rooms are spacious with AC. Washrooms are clean. I particularly love the room 112 (Royal) because of its view. The hotel has hardly 15 rooms so even if it is completely booked you will not find it over crowded. The small lawn in front of the hotel is the best place to spend at night. The foods are good and reasonably charged. One good thing is they have a waiting room at Chawlkhola Bus stand.

Likes:
1) On the Beach ++++
2) Spacious rooms
3) Big & clean washroom
4)The lawn in front of the hotel

Dislikes:
1) staffs are slow.
2) rooms are not cleaned regularly.

Room Tip: Try to book room 101 or 112 they have the best view.

This is one of the few resorts in Mandarmoni that is located with a beach in the back yard. Most hotels that boast of a sea view do have a sea view but they are located away from the beaches and one will have to cross the road to reach the beach.

The waves were lapping one the compound wall of the resort when we decided to take up the best cottage available with them.The best cottage is not something the management an be proud of. It was just basic with a very basic bed room and yet another basic bathroom. The bathroom did have a bath tub and a geyser but there was no hot water from the taps. We did not like the rooms but we loved the location and lawns and the sea in this resort.

The food was OK and service too was OK.

This resort is best suited to people who want to spend their time sitting out rather than sitting in. If you are the kind who get into your bedroom reluctantly to get your quota of the night's sleep and get out the moment you are up then just go for this resort. If you are the kind who cannot spend even one night in a room with substandard interiors then you should avoid this place.

I give four because I am of the 'Sit out' type

Room Tip: Ask for the superior or Super deluxe rooms

I had a 2 nights tour in Mandarmoni in Aqua Marina Drive Inn Mandarmoni, which I booked from a travel agent in Kolkata. I was a bit not sure about the hotel, as very little reviews. Actually when I reached there, I can't express in words, how beautiful the resort is. Its just on the sea beach, and from every corner of the room and resort lawn you can view the Bay of Bengal. Another thing is the non stop natural non polluted fresh air from sea, its great great. I recommend that you all visit the resort and let me know. Food is also at very reasonable price with good taste. Service is also good, Daily room cleaning done if you tell them. As we liked and enjoyed the resort, we extended another day there. Its just right choice to relax and bath in sea, great.
