“Presidential suit - Complete pleasure by itself.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I am staying in Holiday resort since last 3 years regularly.I have stayed in their rooms, regular cottage & suits like Presidential cottage.Last time I stayed was on 28th July 2013.

Presidential Cottage is something, which I will recommend strongly to friends who believes in quality of life and enjoy each moment of it.

The room speaks of itself. This is suite with whitish look ,large size wash room , with jacuzzi and all modern gadgets to make your time enjoyable & memorable. It has a private lawn and open to sea.

Well you have to have time to enjoy. You may not need to go out of the room.

Rest all is fine. Food are tasty and service is good.

Room Tip: Go by your budget.

This is the fifth consecutive year I have been visiting Puri during July & 4th consicutive year staying at Holiday Resort. The ambiance is excellent & service is very good. The hotel is improving continuously like this year I saw a very spacious dining hall has been added & earlier dining hall has been converted to bar also there is a new look souvenir shop. . Similarly the presidential suite has been fitted with jacuzzi bath. The hospitality is excellent viz my train was late by 2 hrs & reached Puri at 12 mn but to my delight I was duly received at station & free vehicle was ready for taking me to the hotel. The sea facing lawn is excellent for after dinner stroll but it is disturbed by high sound generated from microphones used by various private parties organized there. Hotel as CSR activity must put some special effort to ensure the beach in front of the hotel is kept clean on daily basis. Overall is most enjoyable stay & would like to revisit the hotel again & again .. .

Room Tip: Budget permitting stay at room no 124 /123 i.e presidential suit which is superb with exclusive draw...

my stay at the hotel was excellent in a family room on fourth floor. very good room service and cooperative house keeping staff. the front desk, travel desk, and the resturant gajapati at the ground floor was beyond expectations. only negetive point was non availabilty of food after 11 pm in the nite. however the front office kept my spl requst and allowed me a late check out. overall a great experince and i will recomend this hotel for all. i have alredy booked two rooms for this year,s new year in advance.

Room Tip: always book rooms on higher floors for privacy and a fantastic view of the sea.

A wonderful retreat adjacent to the brilliant blue waters of the Bay of Bengal at Puri. Well maintained property, a very helpful front desk and good room service. Clean pool and a great rejuvenating spa. Regular house keeping ensures clean beds and rooms.Centrally located- just a 5 minute drive from the Puri railway station and a 15 minute drive to the Jagannath Temple. Wonderful sea view rooms. You may opt for the cottages or better still, the sea view family rooms on the top floor of the property.Highly recommended for travellers to Puri who seek to enjoy a peaceful holiday, away from the bustle of the Swargdwar beach.

Room Tip: Family rooms on the upper floors offer the best sea views.

visited hotel holiday resort in 17th may 2013 along with my family.our stay was for 3 days and 4 nights.stayed in one of their family rooms.room and cleanliness was good.sea view was nice too.we booked the room by march 2013 itself by paying the advance along with their membership fees what ever amount that was told to us.inspite of that they made mistake.we applied for 400 rs membership fees they gave us the 700 rs premium membership card and till date i have not received the correct membership card even after i paid them long back.they told me that they will be sending me the same by courier.i repeatedly asked them to pick us up from the railway station.but their bus driver left us without receiving us.when i telephoned to the hotel their bus came back.we didn't even know where their bus was waiting for us.they told us that pick up is complimentary.they dont abide by what they say.we lost more than half an hour searching and waiting for their bus.we specially requested them for the pick up as our 80 yr old grandmother was accompanying us.but they were least bothered of all my requests.lot of confusion!!!they did not provide us anything complimentary for the mistakes they made.housekeeping staff was very very slow.had to telephone them 4-5 times to make our room clean.

We were 5 adults and 3 kids, and we stayed in a Family room 605 and Deluxe room 601 for 4 days from 25th June till 28th June 2013. Before booking I read the reviews and thought this hotel would be a great place for us. Now after reaching, this is what we found. Please see the pictures to believe the facts and do not go by the good reviews.

Good:
The only good thing about this place is that the hotel has a direct access to somewhat uncrowded beach. Unlike Swargadwar, this beach is clean and you will not find too many people or crowd.

BAD:
The rooms have very very sharp corners everywhere. This stupid design followed everywhere in room. The bed has very sharp edges that will hurt you when you watch TV or sleep or just sit and relax (See Pics). My 2 year old son hit his head numerous time..

The irritating part was that every time the waiters or room service / housekeeping guys come up to your room, they will stare at you and will not leave until you ask to. They wait for you to pay them the tips. Heights was when a waiter named 'Pahadi' rang the door bell continuously, disturbed us in our sleep and was asking for tips.

Very very dirty utensils and cutlery . And they never change the cutlery until you ask or you check out. (See Pics)

Food is very very expensive. The quality was OK for first two days, then don't know why but it got worse. The kids got ill and vomited numerous times. Not only the kids but we adults fell sick too. (See the pic of the utensils carefully)

The bathroom floor is very slippery and stained all over. (See pic)

Since the room being small, the design could have been modified. But there is a very small gap from the bed to the wall. And every time you cross that area the LCD TV will hit you either in your shoulder or head. (See pic)

There were flies and insects everywhere, every time, everyday. (See Pic)

The pillow was worst. I have never found or slept in such hard and uncomfortable pillow anywhere. And it was extremely dirty. It was only when the pillow cover was removed we realized the truth. (See Pic)

The bed sheet was full of stains. (See Pic)

The window glass was full of dirt and stains. Looked like it was not cleaned for ages. This was spoiling the view. (See pic)

Some of the reception guys were not attentive, I was waiting at the reception to collect my room key but the guys were busy doing their work and didn't pay attention. Only when I asked louder, I was given a look and the key.

They charged so high but didn't provide any complementary Breakfast. At this price other resorts in Puri have better facilities.

You are not allowed to wear your own swimming dress in the pool. You have to hire a swimming costume from them for a price. Just another way to swipe money out of your pocket.

The way the room service guys speak over phone, its like Holiday resort is the only place to stay in Puri. We didn't expect to hear such words at a hotel who charges rates similar to 3 star hotels.

They provide a complementary pick up service from Puri Station in their Bus. This bus looked like govt. owned and govt. run. The condition of the bus was poor. It was not Air conditioned. Its better to hire an Auto from the Station.

................................................................................................................................................

We had a good expectation about this place, but it turned out to be the worst hotel we ever stayed. We thought that as they are charging the rates as similar to star category resorts, their service and facilities will be star category too. But nothing turned out good.

MY VERDICT: THIS PLACE IS DEFINITELY NOT VALUE FOR MONEY. ITS BETTER TO PAY MUCH MUCH LESS AND STAY AT THE LOW COST ACCOMMODATION IN SWARGADWAR. AT LEAST THERE YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY EXPECTATIONS FROM THE SERVICE PART.

THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH..
