“Beautiful property right next to the beach”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

I stayed at the this hotel for one day and one night on work and had quite a pleasant stay. The property is well maintained and the lobby is very beautiful and charming. Check in was smooth with everyone from the guards to the luggage helpers as well the rest of the staff being very courteous and welcoming.
The ambience in the lobby has a warm and old world charm to it. However the rooms are more modern. I had a king size bed in my room. Decor is minimalistic and the room was quite spacious. The linen was clean and white. The bathroom was decent as well. Overall the room was adequate for my needs.
I dined at the coffee shop and the food was okay, not great. For the rates they charge, the food could taste a lot better. The selection wasn't too bad but they really need to improve the taste of the dishes they serve. Overall the service is very good, wait staff was attentive and took good care of us.
The beach is just a stone's throw from the property. You will need to cross the main road to get to the beach. The surrounding area is quite busy and lively with plenty of people milling around. However, once you are in the hotel, it's very tranquil.

As the saying goes "Old is really Gold". This hotel has been staying on the same spot may be since the last 30 years. It may have worn out physically but it still maintains the charm that it was built with. It is one of those hotels which still has some character left. Although the standard rooms may seem prehistoric to the seasoned traveler, the other rooms are well furnished after the much needed facelift. The Suite rooms facing the sea are the best. The staff are wonderful, food is great and views are unbeatable. Wonderful to have some idyllic time.

I had lot of expectations when I first stayed in this hotel. Since it was listed as Taj group I thought it might be of star quality. When I first entered the question was is your hotel 4 or 5 star, and was told 5 star. Unfortunately when I checked online it was listed as only 4 star. Wonder if the employees themselves are not sure. Definitely dint have any mark of Taj group hotels. Clean but otherwise nothing worth mentioning. Dint like the breakfast spread, felt most of the juices were very sour. Very bad showers, had to complain to the management. Looks like the management is aware about it, still they gave this room to someone to stay. Also had trouble with drains in the bathroom as they were not working properly. Since they have marriage hall downstairs and they had some events happening, it was very noisy at the night. Had to complain to the management to receive a reply saying that they cannot do anything. Though they had a spa they had no service. Strange.
