Hotel Megapode Nest
Ranked #3 of 35 Hotels in Port Blair
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 16, 2010

Megapode Nest has a magnificent situation high above Port Blair with pretty gardens stretching down towards the sea. We booked in here for just one night before leaving for mainland India. The only room available was the most expensive - one of the cottages, which had a private balcony with a magnificent view over the ferry harbour where we sat to watch the sun go down . The room itself was spacious and clean, but what would have been a great bathroom was marred by a leaking toilet and a shower cabinet with a hole in it. Room service was fat and friendly, food was good, reception was efficient and overall this was a good experience.

I cannot believe the good reports for Megapode in Port Blair. We stayed just one very long night of 12 hrs prior to early am flight out. Cockroaches outside the room, FILTHY bedding, no toilet paper on arrival, insolent ,indifferent attitude at reception on arrival and departure. Leaving 6am so too early for breakfast and no bananas or any fruit available for us to take with us. Breakfast was anyhow complimentary!!
We slept on top of our towels but ended up with bites all over our backs in the morning.
Never again!!

Its a reasonably good accomodation, after all its run by government. its located in a vast property and has got very good scenic view of the harbour. It even have independent cottages. we stayed in A/C double room. They were very helpful in arranging a cab to airport and arranged our ticket to Ross island. Food is reasonably okay, not any new variety . The only bad experience we had is that, the cot in our room was having some termite infection and they had applied some pesticide or kerosene on that. so inside the room we had that smell all the while . And when we complained they sparyed half a bottle of room freshner on the cot.

We had one to Andamans for our honeymoon. Searching for a hotel was a tough task, but once we landed there after selecting Megapode Nest, we were relaxed by our decision. Beautiful gardens, huge spacious cottages overlooking the sea, nice quiet surroundings. It is an appropriate place for a holiday. They have a travel desk also, so getting a vehicle to go around is not a problem. They even booked our tickets for the ferry. Excellent room service and good food. The hotel is a very nice place to stay.
There are rooms and cottages both, so as per your budget, you can plan your stay. They airport pickup and drop facility. Courteous staff and reasonable food and drinks.

if you r going to A &N you must stay at megapode without a doubt. we stayed in 3 cottages in 1 trip. but rooms are also very good.. we went there for honeymoon so we booked the cottages, as it has too good view of the sea. cottages no. 101, 126, 127 , 102 has best view of them all. 131 to 134 has ok type view. No rooms r sea facing. but they r economical if u r going for sightseeing. room service is also good. and total feel of the hotel is perfect . its situated on the hill in the midst of thel ush greenary. it gives very cool and peacful feel to u. it is must go hotel in port blair.

A VERY GOOD LOCATION TO STAY,AT MEGAPODE NEST COTTAGES,one can get best view from cottage no 129 & 130.not to rely on food taste,as its better at other few places.
very good rooms,with clean bedsheets,towels and running hot water throught the day.only draw back in bathroom was for fat people as shower area is too small,wont be comfortable for fat people.

rest was perfect except at the chect out time with the receptionist,as they had added someone else bill with ours and took time to sort it out
Rest was perfect,one should stay here for best view and location.
If travelling with senior citizen should book delux rooms,as for cottages,they will have to walk a lot
MY STAYING DATES WERE 14/15 THE NOV 2009.
