Beautiful property and there is nothing in here that you won't like. Beach is right in the front and then there is an amazing pool. You can do lot of water sports in the beach. This is definitely one of the best places to relax and chill.

The hotel inspite of being old was really well maintained. Housekeeping was cordial and prompt. F&B both food and services was meeting expectations. Though cannot say the same thing for the other services used. Was unhappy with services provided by the Front desk & the business centre.
