I was returning to this hotel after many years along with my family. When the kids were small, we used to go to this hotel very often. The location is fabulous for short weekend trips and the beach is very nice. The property is large and spread out. Many years ago, the number of rooms were not much and the service and maintenance were very good.
I was disappointed with the room this trip. We checked into two new suites and both were very disappointing. The bathrooms were very poorly maintained and the toilet seats had permanent stains. The air conditioning in one of the rooms was not able to cool the room. There were very limited choices in television channels too and even the IPL game was not available.
The food was the most disappointing part. It used to be quite good, but things seemed to have taken a turn for the worse. The dinner and breakfast was quite tasteless though the spread was good.
The only positive factor remains the staff, who are still very friendly and helpful.
It seems that the management may be looking to cater to more conference and meeting groups than to families and that is sad as this is an excellent property. There are way too many rooms now and there seems to be a total breakdown in maintenance and upkeep.
I would not recommend this property for a family beach trip.
