It's a great place to stay. We had the nature cooled beach side room. It's not really a beach view, more like peek-a-boo. There is a freshness to this place. Veggies are organic and the food is full of fresh flavours. Service is a bit slow at the restaurant. It offers activities like morning yoga, table tennis table, games, cow...

We visited Dune eco resort with our friends in September 2016.. it was one of the best hotels with fresh water swimming pool and organic food served in the restaurent.. the best about the resort is no satellite channels in the rooms, however the ambience of each room reminds you of your childhood with old advertisement posters all around.. overall...

Check in for a group was so time consuming, no organisation whatsoever. My room resembled a shed from the outside, the interior was not much better. Two of the lights were not working, the room was so dark and depressing. The bed was raised on a concrete plinth, I knocked and bruised my leg getting out of bed. The bathroom...

...we went on a long weekend and the staff seemed very hassled and swamped. Check-in was not a pleasant experience, the rooms are quite a distance away from the check-in area. The only on-site restaurant was so-so, service is very slow. Rooms were very tiny and claustrophobic (we took Family House 2). The bright spots are that the property is...

This hotel has a two tear experience, and if you are unlucky enough to get a room in courtyard block, you are in the hate it group. We have never stayed in such a sterile sparse room, the bathroom had no ventilation or fan or a/c. Food was poor with little choice, so what could have been a nice overnight...

Eco Dune is a very good concept which takes you closer to nature and simple living. Our nature cooled hut was decently maintained and clean. The property has access to a private beach (between 6 AM and 7 PM), a center for Yoga and meditation, pottery, cycling and craft for kids and a very good swimming pool. The property is...

Its the most dissatisfying, terrible experience you can ever expect from hospitality industry. The most careless and rude staff I have ever with no courtesy at all. They dont have facilities of even a one star hotel. They should be audited and banned from fooling customers like this. Highly NOT recommended!!

Reading through the reviews, I realised that one either loves this place and puts up with it inadequacies or one hates it so much that they are unable to see any positives. I travelled with a group of 6 people, two have already posted a negative review, and another two loved it, despite the poor service, the dirty dining room...

Recently stayed at this Eco village, reception on arrival was rather unsmiling and rushed. Location is nice, almost on the beach, but the accommodation is rather spread out and WIFI only in the dining room. Our bedroom was much in need of general maintenance, with a TV hung in the centre of the room, but easily walked into as it...
