Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights/3days starting 17th Sept 2011 as part of an offsite business meeting. The following are my experiences:
(1) Check-In: Very courteous and fast. The reception area opens to a balcony with a fabolous view of the Arabian sea. The staff takes your luggage to the rooms.
(2) Rooms: Very modern. Very comfortable beds. Very spacious. Has desk, tables, chairs, armoire. Very powerful twin AC. Nice ambiance lighting.
(3)Bathrooms: Very nice. Marble flooring and walls. Modern shower with tub. Extremely clean!!!
(4) Pool: Very nice. almost feels like an infinity pool due to the ocean view.
(5) Food: I just tried the buffet place. Breakfast/lunch/dinner was good. service was a bit slow.
(6) Ocean View: Very nice. Remember to take rooms on higher floors.
(7) Beach Access: The beach is right in front of the hotel, but you have to walk 5 mins if you want to go via a proper road. if you are feeling lazy then there is a rough path over some minor rocks that take you from the hotel directly to the beach in front.
(8) Conference facilities: Very good and professional.
(9) Beach: during off season the beach is not well maintained. I waqs told that during peak season the beach is very well maintained.
Summary: Nice hotel. Decent price. Will go back.
