“Beach hotel”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Location: Superb! The beach is just behind the hotel.
The city is far away, an advantage if you require solitude.
But the Pondicherry-University is close, so there are also lots of shops nearby.

Ambiance: The buildings are being built. The floors in the walkways are yet to be polished.
So at present ambiance is just okay.

Cleanliness: Yes, it was clean.

The rooms are good. The standard rooms are small but serve the purpose.
Bed quality was above-average. I expected better beds.
Toilets were good and clean.

Break-fast was included.
But the buffet was tiny! not enough items.
The fruit juice was watered.
Food ordered was good though.

The pool was tiny!
There were no towels at the pool, you had to bring them from your rooms.
We kept asking for towels after our swim, all of those boys promised us to get them but they never came!

Air-conditioning was good. It kept its cool though it was quite hot outside.

In general, service was good.

Car-park is big.

Security was good.

This is a value-for-money hotel.
I will surely come here again.

The only thing excellent about this hotel is the location on the beach, if, the ditance from the city is not considered. The House keeping in the sorrounding areas is dirty and within the compound of the hotel littered with scrap and the construction rubble. Dont advice to anyone to stay in Rooms 101-3 , 201-03, 301-3. These rooms are sea facing but other rooms are better furnished. The Decor of the Rooms are like a Govt Guest House. The cable TV does not support any English or Hindi News or sports channels. The food is good as far as the South Indian food is concerned, other food items are not up to the mark. Though the service is quick and freindly. There are frequent partys organised in the resort , with very loud music till the late in the night.
In total , the ambience is rustic and grossly overpriced. Wont recommend to any one to stay at this hotel with the current tariff structure

This place has spoiled our mood. Everything was pathetic .Starting from the room service to the food and cleanliness.This hotel has spoiled our mood like anything .The beach which is outside or called to be as the main attraction was full of garbage. The washroom was stinking.PLEASE DONOT GO THIS RESORT
