I don´t know why we thought it was a good place... the rooms are big, but the things are not in a good state. The bathroom was dirty, the AC was not working in some of the rooms (We stayed with friends). Lights are low... the energy of the place is weird. The attention for breakfast was not so good....

The location is good close to the lighthouse beach. Manager was helpful and friendly. Room was reasonably clean but the cleaning staff did not clean the rooms during my stay of three days. There was no hot water facility and attached toilet was pretty basic. I was charged extra INR 1000 per day on arrival. This was not reflected in... More

I arrived at this hotel and found that you have to walk for about 50 meters in a very narrow passage (< 1... More

I have stayed at Grandsea Hotel on three previous occasions and I have always enjoyed a good room and good service. I was promised Wifi everyday but it never arrived. I don't understood why this was a problem as the last time I was here they had wifi in the reception. You can't claim wifi when it is not there... More

Very nice, quiet place to stay, with very friendly staff, Spacious room with the balcony with the sea view was a perfect start for our vacations. The breakfasts are standard for India (toasts, tea/coffee, juice, sometimes eggs).Very close to the beach (2 minutes walk to the Light House Beach). Several restaurants (non-veg) and shops are just nearby. Right in front... More

A nice hotel with friendly staff, which are always wanting to help and solve any problems. The rooms are tidy and clean. There is enough space to feel well and relax after the treatments. Rooms are available with ac and fan or only with fan. Perhaps there should be some safes in the room. The beds are comfortable and I... More
