All the staff are very cordial and helpful. We are pure vegetarian. chef Boolu's preparation of chappathi and the side dish was fine. They don't charge extra for mineral water and the laundry charge was very nominal. Just 200mts walk to the beach.

Loved the inner court with swimming pool and having breakfast on the balcony in front of your room, friendly staff. It is a little oasis away from the city noise. Everything was spotless clean. Food at the restaurant/roomservice was good. The little fridge on the veranda with assorted cold drinks that you could take and write down on your own...

This is a lovely place to stay near the beach. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and nice with AC and flat screen TV. Of course, the pool and the gardens are the thing that makes this place the best. The pool is clean, surrounded by sun chairs and shade and constantly maintained. Any request is quickly and efficiently seen...

Don't take rooms at the ground floor as they smell humidity, (and full of mosquitoes) which was not fun at all. (because of our old knees, we could not take other ones) Except that, it was a very nice stay. The welcome is warm and friendly, the pool is very clean, and they have nice breakfast. :)

This is a good choice given its location in the midst of CT road near to the beach and lots of good restaurants etc. Cheap to get to the sites from here.

My friend and I planned on staying here for 2 nights, but we extended it for another 3 because we enjoyed it so much. The location is very close to the beach, and it feels secluded from the bustling street. The staff is very kind and attentive. Our rooms were cleaned daily. The swimming pool is very nice to lounge...

“If staying for a few days, you can ask the staff to clean your room--they do a nice job. You might want to bring along a blanket for comfort if coming in the colder months. Front rooms can be noisy with activity on the street.”
