We stayed at the Regency wing for three nights. The hotel has maintained its colonial heritage...with its wooden floors...and old world charm.
I was disappointed with the room which was small-ish and had only partial sea views. But the bathrooms were large and the hotel has a lovely terrace overlooking the Indian ocean..what more can one ask for...
Also the food and drinks are reasonably priced and is of good quality. The breakfast in particular was very good...so were the burgers and wraps.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
