Good, but probably not worth the money. Close to the beach, but not really near the places you'll likely want to see in Pondicherry. Beach closes by sunset, at least according to the signage. Pool has limited hours yet noisy private events were being held even later into the night outside.

My debit card was left in a room when we changed room and staff did not report that a card was found. Looks like a lot of students are working...
