When I arrived my initial impression was a bit disappointed, but I was wrong, yes the rooms decor is basic and the furniture could do with a big if renewing but you get a perfect space for what you need. The rooms are big and airy. The shower us great and bathroom big so you can enjoy getting the sea salt off. The bed or beds are firm but comfy The balcony is great Air con is available just ask There is a big fan to keep vyou cool They also provide free shampoo, soap and water with water bits to refil when ever you run out, plus s full size fridge to keep perishables fresh and cool. They will clean your room when you ask and the staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is right on the front bug you feel safe and able to relax. So would recommend because it's a great place to stay.

pros: 1) This hotel is on the beach, which is really good to properly enjoy the beach. 2) 24-hour hot water supply cons: 1) The room is not very clean, we felt like the room was not clean before they gave it to us. 2) No lift in the hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor, my parents struggled to climb the stairs as they were very steep, hence I don't recommend this hotel if you are traveling with elderly people. Overall our stay was good considering the price we paid for the room. Keep in mind that there is no car parking for any of the hotels which are located on the beach, we need park in paid parking which is just before the beach. Hotel guys helped us to carry the luggage to the parking.

I stayed at Hotel Sumangali for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is perfect as everything is nearby. I had a comfy and clean beach-facing room where I was so happy to listen to the crashing sound of the waves. The best part was the services that I got there. Shanto took care of everything during my stay. There was some problem with the TV, and he fixed it immediately. He helped me in planning the itinerary and made sure that I had a happy stay there. He also walked with me to the auto stand in the dark of the early morning after I checked-out from there. I got complete worth for my money during my stay. I totally recommend this hotel :)

The most awesome sea view rooms at a pocket friendly price. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The hotel is right on the beach where u can hear the sound of waves. Restaurants, bars and market place are right next to it within a walkable distance. The hotel manager Mr Shanton Antony is very friendly and made sure that we had a comfortable stay and enjoyed every second of our stay over there. He made sure of our safety when we were there. He guided us for local sight seeing places.... We had a totally "AWESOME" vacation and will surely return again....

Hotel Sumangali is right on the Light House Beach, making it a preferred and affordable hotel facility for families and friends to enjoy the dip on the beach and then get a fresh water shower at the hotel to wash off the beach sand. We enjoyed the stay. Appreciate the service provided by very co-operative staff. There are so many restaurants around, both veg and on-veg, for you to grab food of your choice. We will be visiting often.
