It was my first stay at a 5 star hotel. The hotel is really beautiful, splendid, rooms are highly comfortable and luxurious. It was a pleasant stay except for two things. Firstly I booked two rooms of same category but on arrival I got the rooms on different floors which was quite uncomfortable. I was very sick that day and I requested for change of rooms but the staff was unable to help me out. Secondly, the hotel in itself is very good but the surroundings are equally dirty & unhygienic. The 'sea view' from the rooms is actually very depressing and not at all worth. The staff is very courteous & helpful. Dinner was excellent. Overall the ambience is superb.
