The first time I went there was almost 15 years ago, when I was a kid. I remember really enjoyed at that time. I had similar satisfying experience when I recently went there a week ago. The place hasn't changed much, construction wise. It still has the swimming pool and a small garden where we played cricket. The rooms are a little old, but clean, I couldn't ask more for the reasonable tariff I was paying. Food is slightly pricey but taste is great! We really enjoyed the butter chicken with chilled beer. Sea food is good too, but we thought the quantity was a little less. There were games for everyone in the evening, housie and music. Overall a perfect getaway for a nice and short family vacation.
A special mention of the two daughters of the family who own this place, that they were doing an excellent job of managing the kitchen and the entire resort, which I thought was a difficult job given that the entire resort was occupied.
