OK. i'm biased. This has been my family's favourite do-nothing place. We've been back here 4 times over the years, and taking a risk booking during the monsoon season proved fortuitous. They opened for the first time during the monsoon months with great prices, and the place was packed! Service has improved, every service staff had a smile on their...

We've been up and down the East Coast over the years chasing waves during the monsoon season, and this is by far the best hotel/resort along the entire coast . . . regrettably, by orders of magnitude . . . and that includes Club Med.
