We don't usually stay in the hotel type of places but by the time we passed in front of it and since we have checked a couple of places before (one overpriced, the other smaller place had no one around to answer), we gave it a try and got an airy double fan room with balcony and sea view in the new wing for 2500. Hot water worked fine, mosquito net was in good shape, some long chairs were available for sunbathing on the beach front.
It was low season and I don't think there were more than 3-4 rooms occupied at the busiest day we were there. There's no light fixtures anywhere, that's weird considering someone took the time to paint the wall in three different colors following the junction with the ceiling... Anyway we weren't there for aesthetics.
Location wasn't bad, I needed to go to the bank and such, it was only a few minutes walk away. The beach isn't that wide at high tide though. We went for a walk further out and it gets bigger but windier as well.
They do receptions and banquet in there, so be aware of that. Nothing was going on during our stay so it was quiet and we slept well with the sea breeze coming in. There's the main building with restaurant across the street, seems older, no idea what the rooms are like in there.
We ordered breakfast on our last morning, it was pretty good but took a long time. Western style, 400 Rs per person.
And yeah, that bottle of water in the room wasn't complimentary, like someone else said. They'll charge restaurant price for it, 100 Rs.
