The TV and tea pot did not work. Had to complain to manager before issue resolved. The bathroom had a huge gap under outside door. I was concerned about insects coming in the bathroom and in our room. Manager put towels in gap. Issues resolved. Friendly staff.

Too pricey
I chose a ``sea view deluxe room" - it was a bit of a disappointment as the sea was real far away, and I should have gone with a regular room. The positives - nice location, clean premises, spacious room, great breakfast buffet, great swimming pool. Negatives - Given that I was paying INR 10K/night, I would have expected free Wifi, better quality toiletries and an elevator to get to my room. The safe deposit box in my room was not functional, and the staff expressed their inability do do anything about it. The toiletries were really cheap quality. The food in the restaurant is ridiculously expensive - so we ended up going out to town for dinner. Overall, though we enjoyed our stay, the bottom line is that this place is very pricey.

Great property but over priced
Great property however not value for money. Basic sports facility and mini bar items were way too high. A pack of Rd 10 chips was charged as Rd. 185 in the mini bar. We also found the room tariff higher than usual, if I compare it with similar other 5 star properties like Radisson Boy, etc. The service of the staff was great and the staff members were extremely welcoming.

Good property let down by horrid rooms
Lets start with what was good, the staff and their earnestness and the property from the outside. The private beach area, pool area and villas look very good. But inside the rooms are a complete shambles. The bathroom was poor and the quality of curtains, beddings and linen were poor. It made for a very uncomfortable stay. We shortened it to 1 night as we could not imagine another night here. To call the room a deluxe room is a lie. It was plain poor and even the corridor to the room gave a feeling of a run down hostel. As I mentioned, the staff was honest and tried hard but clearly they have been let down by the support system and management training.
