Stayed with colleagues for two nights at the Deshadan hotel, and it was wonderful - the staff couldn't have been more helpful or obliging, and really looked after us. The rooms were spotless and very pleasant. And the pool was perfect after a day's riding around on an Enfield Bullet.

We had a very pleasant week at the Deshadan. The place is very calm but still not far away from the cliff. The rooms were very clean and the staff was outstanding friendly and helpful. We didn't feel like being guests but rather friends. Thank you again for that great time.

I thoroughally enjoyed my stay here. The manager was fantastically helpful and kind and the other staff were friendly and happy. The hotel was very well priced and immaculately cleaned. Very close to the cliffs but far enough away to feel relaxed. I would highly recommend this place

My husband and I stayed at this resort during the off season, and had a most luxurious time. This place is in a perfect location, tucked away amongst the greenery, but only a few minutes walk to the beach. The pool was so great during this time of year, when one can't swim at the beach. The staff were so lovely, and we became good friends with them. They helped with everything. The food was really good, here too. We really had such a memorable stay here, and hope we can visit again. Thanks to all the Deshadan staff.

We stayed in this hotel in July / Aug 2012, it was a total treat to find such a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is very well maintained, clean everywhere and to a very high standard, the pool is a total luxury to get relief from the hot sun. The room feels like a 5 star hotel, large, with a great powerful hot shower, excellent AC and a great fan, plus a TV with English film channels! The restaurant is also excellent, the food is fresh and the best we had anywhere in the area. But despite all that the hotel has to offer it is the staff who make this hotel so special. The manager and his staff in every area of the hotel, reception, restaurant, room service staff and the night security guard are excellent. They are so friendly and so helpful. The night security guard doesn't speak a lot of English but he is total legend.

In summary if you can, stay in this hotel! It is without doubt the best place we stayed in India. We went for two nights and stayed for 6! That's how great it is.

Stayed there back in February with two primary-school aged children and really enjoyed it. Waking up and diving straight into the pool felt like a great start of the day. Our room was on the ground floor with easy access to the pool but also quite noisy as you are literally next to other guests enjoying the pool. I know one mustn't complain about noise in India! I just wonder if a first floor room might have been a bit quieter. Also responding to an earlier comment - I myself did see the pool getting cleaned as the water got murky, the management was pretty adamant about it even though some guests were keen to have it as long as they could swim - which counts as customer service in my book. Based on our research this is one of the two hotels with swimming pools on the Cliff, and the other one is more expensive and not so nice. We did check as we originally only booked for 2 nights but then wanted to stay longer but they had no availability, so we had to find that other place with the swimming pool for the kids, but it was not as enjoyable as Deshadan. Lovely place! Nice food too, the only thing is that - I guess as everywhere else in India - the way the restaurants seem to work is that food takes absolute ages to arrive, so if you eat at the hotel place your order at least 40-60 minutes before you are planning to eat.

Room Tip: rooms by the pool are quite noisy and windows are very small = quite dark
