I visited Hindustan Beach Resort with a family group of 4 adults and three kids. The hotel is located very close to the beautiful beach. Ours were sea facing rooms. So when you remove the curtain the view is delightful. The entrance displays a small but filled library, for a reader like me, it's a treat. Because of its closeness... More

Executive rooms are the best. Rooms at 2nd and 3rd floor have good beach visibility. Friendly staffs. Food quality can be slightly improved. Very close to beach with modern amenities. will recommend Hindustan Beach Resort for the pleasant stay.

The Hotel is right on the beach and you can see the sea from room. That is the only positive. We didn't like the room nor the décor. The photograph seems so good but it has been taken from an angle which doesn't show the negatives. Stay if you wish to be on the beach every morning and evening. The... More

Although we had originally booked for 5 nights, due to a medical emergency we ended up staying here for over 6 weeks. The staff could not have been more helpful, during a very traumatic time in Hospital. Each and every member of staff treated us with respect, kindness and every assistance with nothing being too much trouble .... Well done... More

Good rooms. All rooms are sea facing. Had booked two standard rooms, but got a upgrade to one standard and a suite as rooms were not ready for us on arrival. The staff was quick enough to make the upgradation. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Good view of the sea but the area around was too much crowded. The... More
