My husband and I stayed one day at Fortune Resort when our flight out of Port Blair got cancelled last minute, and we did not want to go back to the hotel we had stayed in for the previous two days (Sinclairs Bay View - please read my review of the hotel to understand why).
The hotel is slightly far from the central market area, and finding an auto outside is tough. But the location is great, right on the sea front. Just a road separates the hotel from the waterfront.
The reception staff was helpful, quick check in. Because of an ongoing offsite visit of some company, and many guests checking in due to a flight cancellation, we took whatever room was available.
Room was small, but clean, although the bathroom sorely disappointed. It was tiny, and paint was peeling off the walls, the bathroom fittings old.
Good food made up for that. We ordered in room a chicken club sandwich, which was at par with club sandwiches served at top quality restaurants. We had ordered a basic Chicken Fried Rice and Chilly Chicken at the restaurant for dinner (and although it took more than half an hour to bring the food to our table) the food was really good and we left the lovely restaurant overlooking the sea quite happy.
Do want to mention that our room did not have a king/queen bed, but two twin beds joined together. By the time we realised it was too late in the evening and we were exhausted and has a 6am flight. But we would have moved into another room immediately had we intended to stay in the hotel longer. We should have been told about the twin beds atleast during check in.
We have stayed at Sinclair Bay View and Fortune Resort, during the same trip to Port Blair, and recommend Fortune over Sinclairs for the overall experience.
