Right, let me 1st say this, REMEMBER YOU ARE IN INDIA...! And standards for hotels aren't quite what they are in Europe or elsewhere. But, this place was great. Even for Indian standards. I stayed on the top floor, with my friends in 3 other rooms. The rooms are spacious, air conditioned, satellite T.V. and were cleaned everyday, if you wanted them to be. The toilets were fine, although a bit rustic, but again, remember you are in India! But for a westerner, this was fine.
Admittedly, they were building when I stayed there, the reception was a shell, so 1st impressions weren't great. But when the sun rose, all was good.
The staff was good and receptive. If I need a shirt Ironed, it only cost 30 rupees . They took it, and brought it back. They even went to get us beers!
The rooms look right onto the beach, which is only 10m away. The views are stunning. For a room of this size, with these views, anywhere else you'd pay at least $100 a night.
I got all this for $40 a night. Amazing value.
Overall I though the staff were friendly, very easy going and would do anything for you.
Highly recommend this place.
