First of all: we would definitly recommend this place - especially to couples! The pool and the garden are wonderful, the place is so quiet and peaceful. We stayed here for 5 nights and really loved it!
Room: we got an upgrade to a Suite: very spacious, A/C and fan, comfortable bed, morning and evening room service, mosquito net, nice terrace, coffee/tea in room. Big bathroom with two washing sinks. TV has only 10 channels - maybe a DVD player in room would be a nice idea.
Restaurant: Great food! Try the homemade ginger beer and the Villa hot chocolate, a dream! The cocktails are also nice, but way to small also considering the price of over 900 Rs. Also you can eat where ever you like! The restaurant has nice background music as well.
Hotel: wonderful pool and garden, you get a lovely service, with pool towels and still water being served.The whole hotel is in the colours black and white, very nice design. They have several lounge areas where you can use the free Wifi (not working in the room). They don't have a library but you can get some books at reception. Also you can get a notebook at reception as they don't have an internet station. The connection is not so good though (coming and going...). The beach is only about 30 Meters away, crossing over the railways. Great! Only negative point at the end: it took them over 25 Minutes to do our check-out because the system was down (still they managed to check out a couple coming after us..).
