Stayed at this property with family in last week of September'13 occupying 2 rooms on second floor of same block(one facing swimming pool other facing road/entrance). They have several blocks of 2 storey buildings comprising of 4 rooms on each floor.
Check-in/Check-out: The front office staff were prompt and swift during both arrival and departure. On request for checking out late by a couple of hours they agreed without too much of fuss and let us check out at 1:00 PM instead of 11:00 AM their standard time.
Rooms: Both the rooms were spacious and came with a kitchen cum storage area. It will be best to check if the rooms have spare charging points (missing in one room), Air conditioning and all lights working, and geysers (missing in one room). The fixtures in the bathroom were old (instead of an overhead shower they had a hand shower which refused to throw water). The saving grace was that the rooms/washrooms were clean and housekeeping staff made sure that they make the rooms every day.
Location: It’s just a minute walk to the main road where you will find almost everything; shopping, taxi's/bikes, restaurants. There is a hypermarket as soon as you exit the resort and hit the road "Delfino"...best place for chilled beer, souvenirs, gifts, snacks etc.
Food: We were on a package like most of the hotel guests and found the breakfast and dinner to be of sub standard with very limited options. The food ordered in room or in restaurant (a la carte) was still better. Chicken Club sandwich was for INR 120 and a pot of tea INR 35-40.
Sightseeing: This was one of the worst part if you are travelling with young kids. They take you to a few beaches, Agauda fort, temples etc on a bus after picking guests from their other property. Halts at the points are typically not more than 45 minutes to an hour and if you are someone who likes travelling on own terms; its best to hire a ride!
I would not mind staying at this property again minus their sightseeing and meals. One always has an option to order from menu /a la carte or explore elsewhere.
