The experience has been good and not so good.Stayed during last week of Dec 2012.Hotel was almost fully occupied.Hassle free check in.Room was AC Garden view.Reached late in the evening so no view from balcony.However, could see the light house and hear the sea waves.Big clean room and clean toilet.TV was old and reception was very poor.Enquired about laundry and was told that it will be collected next day morning.Dinner at restaurant was ONLY BUFFET so we opted for room service.Presentation was good with dishes covered in cling film.We were three so it was nice to see a third bed already laid out with cover and blanket.However when we asked for an extra towel, we had to make about 5-6 calls and wait for more than an hour.
Next day morning, when I went to the balcony, I could see a small garden but more than that I could see the sea! What a nice sight.A sea facing room for a garden view price.But another bitter part.When I rang to get laundry service, I was curtly told that the laundry boy had not come so no laundry service.We had to spend a good part of the day to wash and dry the clothes.A tip: Thankfully the split AC hot air blower in the balcony dried the clothes in no time!! Nice walkable distance from the beach.Extremely clear water and white sand.Buffet breakfast at the sea view restaurant was great.There are three swimming pools but we did not use them.Only problem is that there are stairs and stairs to climb up & down for the beach / reception/reception.So may be a problem for senior citizens.Service standard can be discounted considering that it was peak season.On the whole, a nice experience.
