If u want dirty, basic and very, very cheap then go, but otherwise dont.
It was the worst hotel i have ever seen/ been to I looked at 4 rooms before I even put my case down. All the pic on the all the web sites make the hotel look sooooooooooo much better then they are! After traveiling so long to get there and seeing the first 2 rooms I just started to cry and wanted to go back home I kept on asking the staff to show me a clean room but they all looked the same. Broken tiles on the bathroom, dirty bed sheets, a safety box made out of wood with no lock. Dirt all round the toliet and not forgetting in the first room the toliet seat was broken in half.
Once i told the hotel staff i was not moving till they found me a clean room they they found me the fouth room which was still not the cleanest but at least it was liveable.
Once the shock had kicked in and i had many vodkas i woke up the next day to find out that for the whole hotel there was only 9 sunbeds. so to get 1 i had to be up by 7am as there was 6 of us. Then we all sat waiting for the sun, then we waited some more and some more till finally it come out at about 12 till about 4 as the hotel was so built up!
The Location was however wonderful (thank god) it was near to many bars and resturants.
For a very small cab fare you will get the best steak you will ever find (The Slizzling Ice). They was 2 bars where everyone who worked in them made you feel really welcome, the first was the Red Lion and the second was The Public Bar (both on crazy street), these both had the cheapest bars. Another very good bar was the Log Cabin where you will get really good english Karaoke.
The beaches are really nice the only thing that lets them down are the locals who will not stop taking pictures of you if you are white (especially if you are big and pale).
Dont get me wrong the bar staff at the hotel was good (very slow to make cocktails), always happy and friendly. Do however make sure that you pay as you go along or you will get a bill at either the end of the night or the next day with things on it that you have never even had.
Overall I did have a good time and i love inida and i will go back but just not to this hotel.
