Could be great but cuts corners
The room was clean and nice, if a bit dated and gloomy. Great shower and a big balcony overlooking the sea. Thr breakfast buffet is also pretty good with a range of European and South Indian options. The hotel itself has some drawbacks though. The wi-fi was very slow and had a buggy sign-in procedure, wherever in the hotel I tried it. I don't think this is acceptable in this day and age! The hotel's supposed second restaurant, Rumours, appears to be defunct and wasn't serving anything. Service at the main restaurant is haphazard despite the large number of staff. The restaurant, airport transfer and room service all seem very overpriced compared to other local options. The layout of the hotel is strange - the restaurant and swimming pool are cramped together, while a lot of other outside space around the place seems to go unused.
