“HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

we stayed there for 3 days.it is very close to the sea beach and rooms have an angular view of the sea.The behavior of all the staff is extremely rude. Even the front desk and the waiters are ill behaved and harass all guests for enormous tips. If they are not satisfied with your tip they will start abusing you!! You have to oil the palms of all waiters and even the durwan at the gate if u dont want to be abused. DISGUSTING!!

The location is helpful for family visitors as it is near the main area but a bit way from swargadwar, the main centre of activity. The temple is also not too far. A great view of the beach and the sea, although the balconies for most of the rooms are angular and so you can't get a full view. The lawn as well as the children's playing area is a big plus for family visitors.

Room service isn't too great, but the advance tip gets the work done. Restaurant is pretty mediore, don't expect any ambience. Also, for people not from east india, it might be a challenge; even though everything is on the menu, safer to stick with the basic eastern meals. The real pain is at the time of leaving - you have to tip the housestaff, restaurant staff, security staff, all separately. You don't have an option.

I stayed at the sea hawk and despite many other negetive reviews i found my stay quite peaceful. the staff was warm and helpful and the rooms were clean with the ac working at a top notvh condition. Though I found the room service and the food quality of the restaurant annoying, but the stay was flattering enough to forget it !!

I have been visiting Puri since 1993 and I have been staying in this hotel everytime I come to Puri. However, this time after my last visit to this hotel, I promise never to stay in this hotel again. The staff at the reception were haughty and rude. From their behaviour, it appeared that they are doing us a favour by letting us stay in their hotel. On the contrary, their restaurant staff is extremely courteous and friendly. However, the most annoying thing about both housekeeping and restaurant staff is to solicit for extra tips over the amount that I had already given as tips to them...
the only saving grace is the position of the hotel and the well maintained lawn and play area of the children.
There are many good hotels coming up in Puri...time to change over.

Nice family hotel. Excellent sea facing rooms. We stayed from 28th dec 2010 to 1st jan 2011in non a/c super deluxe room 202. Good arrangement for 31st night. All staffs were helpful. Food was fine and also not to forget good time pass for my children as the hotel has good children playing area. The only problem is you wont get room service after 11p.m.

Room Tip: Excellent place to stay. I bet you will like it.
