We arrived at this hotel having just spent 2 hectic weeks traveling around Rajasthan. We were looking for a place to relax for a few days before heading off to explore Kerala and this hotel turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. The rooms and en suite bathrooms were beautiful and incredibly clean. All of the rooms are arranged around a pristine swimming pool which was perfect for cooling off in. It was also possible to order drinks next to the pool day and night.
We ate in the restaurant one night and had possibly the best meal of our entore trip in india.
The staff were also incredibly helpful, providing us with local information about restaurants, places to visit and transport.
Stayed in this Hotel two nights 17th Nov 2011. The hotel is only 6 years old.
The staff is very freindly, The room was more a kind of a suite, very spacious and at night it was bsolutely quiet. Some construction was going on next door which I did not notice not beeing in the hotel during the day. The pool area was extremely clean. The Jaccuzzi like little round pool turned out to be the pool for the toddlers which was the only tiny deception for me.
Very nice Restaurant on top with excellent food. Although the price is in the upper segment of the hotels I usually stay, I think the value we get is very fair.
Just a few steps away from the beach, excellent location.

Try and avoid suggesting this hotel to any one. The very basic amenities like TV, normal drinking water, mosquito repellent were not available. There are much better hotels available within the same price range giving much better services. This hotel is definitely not worth the grading that you have given it.
We had a wonderful experience at the Gateway, staff were very helpful and friendly and always looking to please the guests. I surfed over at North Cliff and the staff at the hotel were very good with local directions/booking taxes etc. so it made our stay and our sight seeing all the more enjoyable. Food here is wonderful and they even gave us a crash course in the local cooking methods, pool is a good size to do some laps of the pool but also nice to relax with a drink in the pool with wonderful sea views.
