Friendly and helpful
I chose this hotel because it had a pool and "private" beach that I thought might be more comfortable for sunbathing. (Turns out I would have preferred to stay at the main beach as tourists were quite comfortable there.) Pluses: The room was very large, the ac always cold, good hot water in the shower. Drinking water provided as well as a water dispenser in the lobby where I filled my water bottle and saved some plastic. Excellent service at breakfast and they would make me masala dosa or banana pancakes at no extra charge. Staff was always helpful and friendly. Not so great: bathroom is tight, older, and some of my shower tiles were corroded so water from the shower leaked into the bathroom floor. Nice balcony facing the ocean but as the ac unit blows out hot air out there you never want to sit there unless you turn your ac off. Pool water was hot and not refreshing. Steep 5-10 min walk up from the main beach and at night has some dark spots. As I was alone I was a bit concerned but was never bothered.

Beautifully located Hotel .
Great hotel with incredible views. The rooms are comfortable with a large balcony . However the bathrooms need a complete overhaul . The decor needs upgrading . However the location with private beach beautiful gardens and pool with walking distance to local restaurants public beach and tourist shops makes up for the dated decor . The massage spa gives fantastic value for money with wonderful services. The food was varied , very tasty and also good value. The staff could not do enough to help you. Checkin was quick and simple. Minor downside no safe in room nor fridge. However fridge was quickly supplied when requested for storage of medication. Overall we would recommend this hotel as good value and would stay there again. Would also consider booking the cottage if available .

Good place for relaxation but little far from city
It is a nice comfortable place to stay. But if you are interested in visiting places like zoo, temple and place you have to travel. But if it is for relaxation it is a best place to stay.

Terrible managerial show
We thought nice to start with then found we never got what we ordered electricity in room was sub standard and dangerous the massage packages were cut short and not really proper massages on leaving we were detained having to pay for meals we didn't get massages that were short and not fulfilled after manager had told us we would only pay what we received then causing a scene as we had our taxi waiting he locked the gate forcing us to pay unsigned bills otherwise would have lost our flight
