It is a pretty good hotel but not much of a resort.
Room is very good quality, food is pretty good particularly in Buffett - We didn't like the Dhaba that much, so we took to taking Breakfast, lunch and dinner in Buffett and it was pretty good and service was great too with them obliging even our custom requests for our 2 year old.
So it is a pretty good hotel. Except for room service once when we had to keep reminding for a tea for 45 minutes. Even with that it is still a very good hotel because most of the other times they room service was prompt, room and everything in it was very clean and cleaning was good.
But we don't rate it very good [4 stars] because it claims to be a resort. But it is not much of one. When we went, swimming pool wasn't working which was a bummer as there wasn't much to do except eating and sleeping in the room! I think they should have informed travel sites and Tripadvisor etc. when one of their main facility [if it is a resort, that is] is not working. Also they should charge minus that facility. [Of course the rate is not particularly cheap - more than Rs. 6000 per night but includes breakfast]
BTW, the active resort area is not that big - You can walk in all of 5 minutes or even less. I think out of 8 acres quite a bit goes in parking and roads etc. Children play ground area is in need of big maintenance. it is more like a wedding venue than a resort.
In summary pretty good if you want a hotel to stay in, very bad if you want a resort - even pool is under maintenance.
