Reviewed January 21, 2014

We have just returned from India and had a wonderful time in both Rajkot & Diu over the Xmas and New Year period.

The only thing that let our holiday down was the Radhika Beach Resort in Diu.

We had booked the Radhika as we had been there before 13 years ago and it was a pleasant hotel. So in September 2013 we decided to book it again. This time they asked us to send a cash deposit of INR. 15000 to secure the two rooms we had booked. They had already inflated the prices for the Xmas and New Year’s day period.

We’d like to point out that Radhika was the only hotel we stayed in India that wanted a deposit. Perhaps on reflection we should have guessed that something was wrong.

We arrived just as it was getting dark and on the way from the airport all we could see were posters advertising Radhika on every lamp post. On the approach to Radhika, it looked just like a circus or a fairground from the outside. They couldn’t have put any more lights on everything if they tried as there was no more space!

Getting through the glaring lights we eventually found the reception. We asked to see our rooms and were shown rooms 204 & 204 which were at the back of the hotel next to a very old noisy air conditioning plant.

The rooms were supposed to be ‘deluxe comfort rooms’. Unfortunately, they were neither deluxe nor comfortable. They smelled really musty, and were in a serious need of a refurbishment. We went back to the reception and told them we wanted deluxe comfort rooms. The Assistant Manager Mr. Lalit told us that these were the only rooms left even though we’d booked them in September. He told us that if we didn’t like the rooms we should find somewhere else to stay. He was rude, arrogant and basically did not have any communication or customer skills.

We explained that we’d had a very long journey from Rajkot and were very tired and would stay the night but would find somewhere else in the morning. Being the Xmas period, all the hotels in Diu were full.

We went back to the rooms to try and get some sleep. The beds were rock hard. The pillows were just a rectangular piece of foam. The blankets were moth eaten and disgusting. There was no hot water in the sink. The bathrooms window had glass slats which could not be closed as they were so old. They were letting in lots & lots of mosquitoes. The bathroom was so outdated it hadn’t been modernised since our last stay 13 years before. The electrics in the room and bathroom were in a terrible state. The mosquito plug wouldn’t even stay in the socket. The paint was either peeling or flaking off the walls everywhere.

One would expect to find better rooms in a 1 star hotel. Other 3 star hotels we stayed in India were brilliant.

Radhika needs a complete refurbishment. All the good reviews seem to have have come from the local clientele. If Radhika wants any International customers then it really needs to improve on it’s customer services skills and more importantly refurbish the rooms.

I found this hotel and restaurant to be good, but not outstanding. However, I have had no major problems staying here and the experience is good. The rooms and property are clean. You do have to cross the street to reach the beach. I prefer Magico Do Mar given its location on the beach, the Magico beach having fewer people on it, and ocean views. The restaurant here serves a standard Indian fare of Punjabi, Chinese and Italian food. The restaurant has an excellent reputation.

We have stayed at radhika a few times, the best thing about the resort is that its right by the sea and has a good atmosphere, the food is also great if u are a meat eater then don't expect such a variety for breakfast.

We visited Diu in January beginning along with few friends. Even though we didn't like our stay in DIu much but we really liked our resort. Its a beach resort with spacious rooms. The property has been maintained really well. The staff was also very helpful.

Let me start with my thanks to the staffs for excellent service and hospitality provided. I have visited most of the tourist places in India. I can surely say that the service of this hotel is the best I have seen in India (apart from 5 star hotels). Whenever we asked for room service (for anything), it was done within max of 5-7 minutes.
The hotel is located right on the Nagoa beach. The layout of the hotel is such nicely designed that most of the guest rooms are surrounding the swimming pool. You won't be able to view the sea from any of the rooms, but don't worry - you will not miss anything. The entire property is excellently maintained - the rooms, lawn, pool, playing area, games room.
The restaurant has variety of food and drinks options. The good part is ALL of these options (as per menu card) were available whenever asked (in most of the hotels I have seen that some of the options in menu card are not available). Food quality is also good.
This hotel is bit costly, but undoubtedly value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I suggest to stay at pool side rooms. Though they have exactly same room amenities at higher price...
