Stayed at the hotel for 4 days.The Hotel is good basically because of the location. Basic air conditioned rooms and toilets,no tv since it belongs to the ashram complementary breakfast with Bread Jam Butter, Egg omlettes as well as Indian Breakfast. Lunch and dinner is good for Southindian food lovers.My wife and daughter loved the lunch. The ashram is close by and most of the good restaurants are close by.Children cannot play sea side as there is no beach except at the extreme right where theres a patch of beach. My daughter utilized the small patch of beach to the maximum and had a great time befriending the fishermen. They did give her dead starfish and seahorse and a lots of seas shells. One gets to see the catamarans parked there. Do visit and stay at seaside guest house if you are the one to use the rooms only to sleep at night. And if you travel by car you are told to park at the back entrance. Be careful not to park car in front of gates of other house or shop.You may find car wheels deflated the next morning.
