Visited with family on 22nd January. Stay was comfortable. Staff were courtiuos. Stayed in Arabian Sea View rooms. View of sea not as good as Sun & Sand Mumbai which I last visited. But is good. Beach Drop is free and provided by hotel but beach pickup should also be included. Because it is a very steep climb. Food is...

It is most likely privately owned and would be better managed if sold to a hotel chain who can completely develop the place and surroundings. A lot of people gave bad reviews with no understanding of the local culture so I will not...

Staff were welcoming, friendly and (despite little spoken English) extremely helpful, Reception staff were a bit stiff, but everyone else was really nice. Food was excellent (special...
