The good location is only what they have.We stayed in this resort for just 1 night. The rooms are big & spacious. Bathroom was also very big. The swimming pool was very dirty and unkept. The AC in our room was also not working and after repeated requests the issue could not be fixed. Although they provide free wifi, the... More

If your idea of a holiday is to just relax then this is a decent place. Rooms are very spacious. The food is amazing. The beach, though about 100 meters away, is pretty secluded, so that is great. They have a nice play ground for kids and also arrange other activities. The hotel is situated some distance away from the... More

overall good stay at windflower Pondicherry. I found the rooms to be spacious and convenient. bathroom was also big and practical. Nothing great about food but that was compensated by very very good restaurant staff. I found the resort a bit far but again the proximity to the beach compensated for this (beach is walking distance from the resort). one... More

First if all this hotel is at least 30 mins in heavy traffic beyond the centre of the city, so exceedingly inconvenient for a short stay. The first thing you notice at Reception is how stained and grubby the furniture is, not a good start. The bedroom, supposedly one of their better rooms, is shabby, the bedding whilst clean is...

Family visit to this place was a worthwhile experience after long drive from Bangalore for 7 hours. Food and the staff at dining gets the top prize. Also the property itself is very beautiful and well maintained. Backwater facing rooms are extra large with nice shower. Near to the breach for anytime access.

I booked this place seeing all the positive feedback but was seriously disappointed. Let me list the concerns 1. The resort looks aged. Maintenance is not kept up - walls have ugly spots and marks. 2. Rooms that are touted as water view are a sham. You can barely see a sliver of water in the horizon - that too... More

I booked suite and under normal circumstances that room was nowhere close to suite,bathroom had sand in it,the floor was dirty... More

If you choose a hotel from the photographs supplied by the hotel, be warned be careful very careful when it comes to the. Windflower hotel! I'm not sure and don't really care who their clientele is or who they are catering for, but it's not for the faint hearted British or European standard of cleanliness that's for sure! Just to...

Chef asked me couple of times about food and my comments never made it to food table. It seems like they local folks for cooking... More
