Good location with private beach.

Posted 06-Feb-2017
Pros: The views and it's quiet location.
Cons: More new sunbeds, some were very tatty. More parasols and more pool towels. Fridges and tea making facilities in all the rooms. Internet in all rooms
Location: Good location but you need to be fit as on a steep hill and many steps. Good shops and excellent restaurants on main beach. Santana was our favourite.
We enjoyed our stay here relaxing in the pleasant warm pool and on the private beach, although the waves are huge so swimming is not recommended. The cottages are very sweet and worth paying more for as they are larger and have a fridge, mosquito nets and a sitting area inside as well as out. The restaurant had a lovely setting overlooking the sea and the breakfasts and snacks were very nice though there is no pool service. The pool is very pleasant but could do with more sunbeds and sunshades. There were shaded areas in the garden though. The hotel is up a steep hill on the edge of the town and there are many steps down to the pool and beach. It is very close to Lighthouse beach with all its shops and excellent restaurants. Not really suitable for children as sea not safe and pool is small and has many rules.

Excellent place to stay!

Posted 16-Dec-2016
Pros - Great front of house staff; room clean and large with a great view; restaurant food is 5*; great pool and private beach. Cons - A/C was intermittent (although I never ask for it to be looked at and fixed) and the sun beds could do with updating.

Good place for relaxation but little far from city

Posted 16-Aug-2016 on Hotels
It is a nice comfortable place to stay. But if you are interested in visiting places like zoo, temple and place you have to travel. But if it is for relaxation it is a best place to stay.

Terrible managerial show

Posted 05-Aug-2016 on Hotels
We thought nice to start with then found we never got what we ordered electricity in room was sub standard and dangerous the massage packages were cut short and not really proper massages on leaving we were detained having to pay for meals we didn't get massages that were short and not fulfilled after manager had told us we would only pay what we received then causing a scene as we had our taxi waiting he locked the gate forcing us to pay unsigned bills otherwise would have lost our flight

Friendly and helpful

Posted 04-Apr-2016 on Hotels
I chose this hotel because it had a pool and "private" beach that I thought might be more comfortable for sunbathing. (Turns out I would have preferred to stay at the main beach as tourists were quite comfortable there.) Pluses: The room was very large, the ac always cold, good hot water in the shower. Drinking water provided as well as a water dispenser in the lobby where I filled my water bottle and saved some plastic. Excellent service at breakfast and they would make me masala dosa or banana pancakes at no extra charge. Staff was always helpful and friendly. Not so great: bathroom is tight, older, and some of my shower tiles were corroded so water from the shower leaked into the bathroom floor. Nice balcony facing the ocean but as the ac unit blows out hot air out there you never want to sit there unless you turn your ac off. Pool water was hot and not refreshing. Steep 5-10 min walk up from the main beach and at night has some dark spots. As I was alone I was a bit concerned but was never bothered.

Хороший расслабляющий отдых в красивом месте.

Posted 02-Mar-2016 on Hotels
Отдыхали с 15 по 29 февраля 2016. В целом отель соответствует категории. Удобно расположен. Хороший пляж. Питание хорошее. В отеле чисто. Номера убирают ежедневно с полной заменой постельного белья и полотенец. Площадь номера достаточно большая. Персонал очень доброжелательный и отзывчивый. На верхнем этаже расположена аюрведическая клиника. Хороший доктор и другие сотрудники. Отдыхать понравилось. Рекомендую всем, кому необходим спокойный отдых.
