We were on a family trip consisting of our aged parents and our kids. The staff welcomed us by garlanding us. We were provided a welcome drink, which was Minute Maid served in a glass and not any fresh juice. They could consider providing fresh juice instead of any bottled drink. The sea-facing rooms were already taken and we were allotted rooms near the reception area, of which one was in the upstairs. The rooms are well kept. The one above had open shower area, which is very enjoyable, and also a bathtub. The room below did not have any bath tub. Both rooms had balconies. The usage of pool is free and they have a separate pool for kids, which our kids enjoyed a lot. If you bring inflatable tubes, the kids (who don't know swimming) can give a try at the regular pool. It would be very useful if tubes are provided at the resort itself. You have two shops in the resort, but they don't sell these. The private beach they have is just wonderful. We had a great time at the beach. The breakfast buffet was great too and the staff were too willing to help the senior citizens in our group and brought food to our table. For lunch, we ordered south Indian meals, but the quantity was less and had to order extra rice. This was a costly affair. They charged Rs. 60/- for one portion of extra rice. Food was in short very expensive. They rent out bicycles at Rs. 50 per hour or so. Room service was also very good. Overall, it was a very good experience staying at this place, the only drawback i find being the cost of food.
