View - View of the bay of bengal from atop this little hill is breathtaking. Rooms are all sea facing, so I believe views from any of the rooms is superb. The strong curve of the beach tapering towards the further end makes it all the more beautiful.
Rooms - We booked from Kolkata APTDC. I wanted a private verandah. My room charge per day was Rs. 2644 (incl taxes). The AC room was spacious, clean with double bed, had a large LCD, 2 sofas, coffee table, wardrobe, a small refrigerator, geyser in the bathroom...
Restaurant - The sea facing restaurant serves very good food. It also has an open section which is very soothing at night owing to the soft sea breeze.
Service - I had a feedback from friends about poor service, but surprisingly I found the service to be very satisfying.
Location - 16-18 km away from the railway stn and 24 km from the airport beach resort is remotely located and I found no shops nearby. Beach is a long flight of tiring stairs (esp when you are returning).
Beach - The beach line is short but good for bathing owing to absence of rocks. The beach hardly ever gets crowded due to the remoteness.
