This place is in very good location with decent facilities. Rooms are very clean, spacious and good. They have good swimming pool and the views of the harbour. There are no activities for children other than the swimming pool.
Not all on the restaurant menu is available, somehow, again prefers to serve predominantly north Indian cuisine. If you are looking for local dishes, only thing on offer is aviyal but not available most of the time. Same with Nan and other tandoori items. There seems some communication problem even with English (possibly, non-malayali accent is not understood).
This place is in great locale but it falls short in service at many fronts. Room is very clean and spacious, however, the flooring is a bit uneven though carpeted. AC does not work in the High mode. We could not move the switch to High mode. Medium mode was not sufficient enough even in mid-November. Hot water from the shower is luke warm. Toileteries are not replinished though we stayed more than one night. Only an extra soap was put but not the bubble soap (foam bath) or the dental or shaving kits. I do not see what is the point in charging a premium and then treating the guests with such "penny saving" schemes.
For kids the only entertainment is swimming pool which is an open pool but has strict timings of 8am to 6pm. Though there was day light, one of them came and offered a towel at 6pm sharp.
This place seriously needs good make over in the area of service.
