The landscaping of the resort is really good . The website displays the actual magnificent sea view from the garden and courtyard. Rooms were decent . Location was quite far off from the main beach or city or even the temple. Food was decent. Rooms were not very good as compared to standard of property but the Suite was really amazing.

Room Tip: Try to take a newer unit room

But for the location, it was very good experience to be in he Hotel. The staff was very courties and had an accommodating attitude. The property is well maintained. The breakfast was excellent. However, the food menu was lacking North Indian Vegetarian Food. Location of the Hotel, though peaceful is far away from the City. The Hotel should provide drop/pick-up facility from Beach.Overall our ecxperience was very Good. We may choose to visit this place again.Last but not the least, Manoj at the Hotel is a great help to all Guests.

So the property is out of the city. A personal vehicle is a must if you want to get in or out of this property.
Not at all friendly for the old and disabled. The walk to the beach is long and does have wheelchair access. The extra steps and sand mass does not help... There are other friendlier properties.
Food is average.
Maintenance is at a low, and the management does not have an appreciation of the small conveniences that can turn an otherwise unimpressive stay for their customers into a holiday to remember.
Of course this comment will be met with a standard cut-paste statement from the GM, one Mr. Tiwari :(... No hope...

Room Tip: Choose the rooms directly above the reception for a grand view of the property.

The best place to spend your time in this hotel is sitting in the verandah outside the reception looking out to the sea across the pool.
An ardous, long, marathon walk to the sea. A clogged drain in the toilet that can only be used by plumbing experts. An air conditioning system too high tech for mortals to operate. Hotel management that is more difficult to communicate with than the Lord Jaggannath himself, in his hometown.
If you don't want to challenge yourself on a holiday, and want things to happen easily and naturally, trust me the other options in this city are well worth your time.
Reading the comments of Mr. Tiwari, now ably and equally unproductively replaced by one Mr. A Sharma, me thinks its the top management that thinks that they are obliging their patrons not serving them.
A perfect case of a misplaced ear and an missing heart.
