Yes, the view is very nice - the rooms are fair, although the mattress we had was way too hard and uncomfortable for both of us (and my husband usually likes firm mattresses). We did have a really good dinner in the restaurant in the hotel on the first night we were there. However, we tried the restaurant again the last night we were there, and no such luck with the food then - in fact, my husband was feeling pretty ill from his dinner that night. Also, the drinks we were served at the bar were pretty watered down; however, since they weren't too expensive we let it ride. The rest of the stay was punctuated with little disappointments and inconveniences. For one, the coffee pot in our room was missing an important piece - the tray in which you put the coffee grounds. We mentioned this to the front desk the second day of our stay - and by the time we left on the 5th day, the coffee pot still had not been fixed or replaced. Also, when housekeeping came around after the first night, they neglected to refill/replace all the soaps and things - plus they did not remove a stained towel that I had purposely left on the floor (as directed by the signage to do if you want them to remove and replace a towel) and, instead, just hung it back up, stains and all. The hotel was filled with people who were there for some kind of convention - and when they left, another conference started up the next day. I suppose this is a good way for a hotel to make money, but when you're there attempting a romantic getaway, all the corporate hubbub around you is distracting - and, more importantly, the people involved with those conferences get all of the hotel's attention and those who are not end up feeling noticeably neglected.
Finally, although I'm uncertain if the hotel has anything to do with this directly, there were signs all around the hotel about a boat tour - but there was no stand that we could find at which to buy tickets and no one around who seemed to be affiliated with said tour; we didn't even see a boat in the water that looked like it might be a tour boat for our entire stay. Since the signs are posted on the hotel's property, we'd have thought they hotel might have supplied some kind of information about it to their guests - even if just posting a notice that the tour isn't actually running, so please ignore all the other signs. But, the staff really didn't seem all that interested in being helpful in general - at least not to us, as "outsiders" from the conference group. Ah well. All in all, I think I'd find myself steering away from Ramadas in the future now, assuming other options are available.
