My husband and I along with my cousin's family and friends stayed at this hotel for just1 night in last year November (2012). When we reached there all tired because of the journey, our rooms were allocated immediately.
We freshened up and the gang of girls decided to take a dip in the pool as it was late to access the beach. That just lifted our moods up and following that we had dinner and the manager told us that he has a DJ arranged for our group (about 25 of us). We had fun dancing away to some Bollywood dance tracks! The hotel is beach facing and we spent some time lazing at the beach deck late at night and enjoying the sounds of the waves. Loved it!!
Accommodation: We were lucky to get a room (pool view) on the top floor, which were the new ones, so they were quite spacious and clean. However, the older rooms in the floors below were old, chipped, and some of them also did not have a proper rectangular room layout. Try and avoid those.
Food: Food was pretty decent compared to some other places we ate before. So no complaints in that respect. We had buffet dinner and breakfast there, both were good.
Location: The best part- it is beach facing. We tried snorkeling the next day which was super fun.
Service - Cant comment much, as I did not try room service. But otherwise the staff was very courteous and warm.
Overall, if you can ensure getting the new rooms, I would say "go for it". However, the older rooms are complete No-No!
