My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. A complimentary airport pick up was included in our deal and I emailed to organise this. I received an email confirming we would have someone waiting for us even though we would be arriving at approximately 3am local time. When I called to confirm this between flights, I was told that all their drivers would out doing drop offs and this would not be possible until around 8 or 9am. I asked to speak to a Supervisor who was conveniently not available. Upon arriving at the airport, I was caled by their driver who was there waiting for us. Aside from this mishap, everything was fine during our stay.
The hotel was spotless, most of the staff are lovely, and the hotel is well located. 3mins walk from the beach and many restaurants in the area. A great one to try is Mahesh Lunch which specialises in seafood. For vegetarian fare, try Shiv Sagar.
Check in and check out was speedy which was a great help considering the time we arrived and we also left at 1:30 am.
Walls are quite thin and can hear loud talking from rooms next door or tv turned up high. Can also hear traffic if you are near the front.
Try using the auto-rickshaw (tuk-tuk as locals call it) for shorter rides. If you are travelling further, rather than booking a txi for a day with the hotel, use a cool cab (blue and white cars) as they have a/c but can be cheaper. Avoid leaving/returning to the hotel between 5 and 9 pm as the traffic is horrendous.
All in all, we had a lovely stay once we were settled in, and can't really complain.
