This place was ok, but one of those quite average and unmemorable places. If you are just looking for a clean and spacious place to stay for a beach holiday, it is completely fine. Highs: beach front property and the beach is beautiful, guest room buildings in nice garden, rooms are clean and spacious with nice balconies/terraces. Lows: restaurant area...

Nice property along the beach. Its not a 5 star but worth the visit. Buffet breakfast and dinner was included in our package but we had ordered a-la-carte for lunch the second day. It was very tasty.

We stayed at the place for three days and experienced the Malabar coast especially the clean beaches and the estuary. The Hotel GM personally ensures you are comfortable and takes care of any issues . There is not too much choice to eat and F & B can be improved. Staff courtesy and friendliness makes up for this gap ....
