Found this gem through trip advisor. George the owner was great. He picked is up personally from the train station, drove is to our next destination and helped is with all of out enquiries and requests, even asking for advice on how to make the hotel better (we suggested curtains for the rooms affected by the walkway lights and the option of padded mattress overlays).
The hotel is well situated- about 5 seconds walks from the beach. All restaurants and shops are accessible and the views are fantastic.
The beds are typically hard (normal for India) and there is a short walk to get your bags to the hotel (vehicles are not allowed on the walkway). However Orion is one of the nearest to the end of the road and if you don't want to carry your bags, there are plenty of people that will for a fee.
Loungers and parasols are available on the beach with body or surf boards for hire. It's worth walking further down the beach to find a lounger with padding.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here (sea view, large room with a/c option) and would stay again.
