On the positive side , we could see Neelkanth in the open sky and about 30-40 small colourful birds in a large cage. Sunrise at 6.30 am was wonderful. However , Food was not of very good standard. Restaurant staff was sober but inexperienced or old. Stray dogs( and their excreta) could be seen in the compound.

An awesome family resort, with a nice variety of rooms/ cottages. This is run and managed jointly by PIPDIC and ITDC. Ours was a Premium Sea facing cottage, which was as exotic as it can be. It was perched on stilts with a canopy, which made it look all the more beautiful! The room was large, with a comfortable and...

The Ashok Beach Resort, near Pondicherry is a beautiful 65 acre beach property. A venue that could have probably been the most amazing place for a holiday except that its run by a group of unprofessional hotel personnel. The staff are most unfriendly and very creepy. Housekeeping very unhygienic and tacky. Infact its very unsafe to leave your room and...

Got the booking there on 11th hour. Nice family place. Ground floor rooms are good if you have kids. It's value for money place and few occasions fit for Desi requirements. People swimming with out proper gears. Having buffet breakfast with wet cloths. Management should prevent such things, good part is its unlimited buffet breakfast though notice are put forward....

This hotel is one of the best hotel in Pondicherry. Run by ITDC , Govt of India. They have maintained it very well. Primary attraction is the beach and access to east coast road. WiFi was not good. Staff may not respond fast

Decent hotel , very good service. Rooms were clean , direct access to beach. Not one of the best properties in pondy although worth a visit. Beach view is very good, although the beach itself is not very clean due to the fishing villages on both sides.
