Well my husband and I hail from Mangalore, so the sea side was not new to us. So the wow factor in terms of living on an "island" was never there. But going by the tariff a l ot was expected of the place. Few cons:
Hot water in small quantities even thought we had a Jacuzzi in the room. we had to fill it by waiting in intervals.
As soon as we entered the room wanted to order room service. The phone was not working.
The door lock was jammed.
Major language issue, the servers don't know anything else other than Malayalam.
Decent food at the restaurant.
They mixed us up with some other couple and falsely told us that the food is free for three days.
These are few things that come to mind. Believe me there were many. Please avoid at all costs!!!!
