We stayed during 2nd and 3rd June, 2012. The hotel is very good, it is quite, peaceful, closer to beach, great staff, but managed very poorly.

What I liked
1) The location, it is very closer to the Marari beach.
2) Good staff, except the reception guys.

What I didn't like
1) There is co-ordination between them and their partners like makemytrip, agoda etc. Before arriving at the hotel I made the booking and the confirmation through makemytrip(BID NH2P10282029201) for beach villa room, but after reaching the hotel the guy at the reception said that there is no availability of rooms and I have to adjust with cottage room. When I showed him that on the internet it shows the availability he said that it is not updated, he went inside and called someone after that it got updated for makemytrip, but not for other partners like agoda etc.
2) Restaurant service is very very slow, after the lunch when we ordered for dessert (butter scotch ice cream and fruit salad) it took more than 30mins to serve. Tip for others, call the restaurant and place the order before arriving at the restaurant. Management, please keep the menu in the room.
3) If there are good number of visitors then they will server you buffet (300/- veg and 500/- non-veg) pretty costly. If you want to go for Ala-cart then you have two options,
i) Pick anything from the buffet which they will serve you as Ala-cart and will charge you only for that.
ii) Wait until all are finished with their lunch/dinner then you can place the Ala-cart order.
4) No room service available for food.

Room Tip: Cottage room and Beach Villa room are almost same, save money and go for cottage. If you want room...

Pros:
- Very good location near a peaceful, clean and almost-empty beach (currents are rough though!). The Resort is surrounded by fruit and flower trees. The only sound you hear is of birds chirping.
- Rooms and Bathroom are air-conditioned, functional and very clean as per western standards
- Breakfast buffet is very delicious. A la carte orders can take a bit of time - approx. 20 mins.
- All staff are polite and greet you with a smile. We accidentally left our mobile on the beach and they helped us find it late in the evening when it was dark. (Beach gate is open from 7am - 7pm)
- The Room service staff surprise you with flower patterns on the bed :-)
- Pool is located near the Restaurant. It is approx. 20 Meters in length, approx 10-12 meters wide and 4 feet deep

Cons:
- Internet is not free and only available near the Reception and Restaurant area
- Beach is sometimes used by nearby villagers as a open-air toilet
- Pool water was muddy during our stay and it was difficult to see inside the water when you swam

Verdict: Will return again to stay at this place!

Room Tip: - If you are taking a Pre-Paid taxi from the Airport, tell the driver that it is near the (more popu...

This is a really gorgeous property with great rooms and views. Very scenic location right next to sea. Easy access roads. Warm and welcoming friendly staff. The boat ride was just ok - no great shakes. The cottage we were in was fabulous. Especially thier outdoor bathroom. Spacious and fully airconditioned with a nice balcony. They had cultural shows every evening which made dinner pleasant and enjoyable. Was there with my wife on my honeymoon. We had a fabulous time. Was there 3 nights in thebeachcottage . It was certainly a very memorable experience and would recommend this place with no hesitation.

Room Tip: health club is more importnant
