The room was good and spacious. But the bedsheets were not changed for 3 days! And towels were not provided for the Bathroom. The guy in charge - "Rajeev" in the pretext of being helpful asked us if we wanted a vehicle for transport, and that he can easily arrange. As Sandys had a good review at Trip Advisor, we went ahead. We came to know that he was charging almost 200% of the actual cost outside.
1) Less than an hour of paying RAJEEV the advance for the vehicle, we told him, not to proceed with the booking. But he started acting indifferent. And told us that if we don't take the vehicle, the money (2000 IN Rupees) is not refunded. This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable. He was exploiting the vulnerable position that a tourist/guest feels in a different State/Country.
2) The first day, we gave him the keys to clean our room and left in the morning. When we came at night, we found that he didn't lock our rooms, and it was lying open the whole day!
3) On the last day of our trip, we met the car owner, and he himself told the rate we are paying is very high. But "RAJEEV" came in between and kept interfering and didn't let us pay a more reasonable price.
4) Just as we were about to leave, we remembered that one of our friend's mobile phone was left at the room itself. When we mentioned this to Rajeev (this was 2 minutes after locking the door), he was very hesistant to open the door. He started telling that new guests are coming etc.etc.
I would highly recommend anyone to please go to a different service apartment. Please don't ruin your holidays at this place, unless and until they change the care-taker Mr. Rajeev!!!
