Lovely children's area and pool ( some of the edges of tiles in the pool are sharp and two of us got cuts on our feet) our meals were good although breakfast could have been a bit more interesting . The staff were helpful, lots...

The service was very average both in the hotel and in the restaurants although there were some exceptions. While it is located on a beach, it's not 'private'...

We had booked here for three families together. The hotel rooms were spacious n nicely done with antique beds and furnitures. The property was big, green and the decors were also nice. It was so nice to walk around. The swimming pool was nice too. The breakfast buffet spread was very average, it needs improvement. We ordered room service for...

This resort is in the process of developing itself into a high end locale. The indoor/outdoor dining room is nice, the staff is accommodating. Some of the rooms are old style and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is good. Pool is gorgeous. Beach is right there.

This property is located in a peaceful neighborhood and has spacious rooms. There is a little bit of inconvenience due to renovation work going on. However the setting and the private beach are really the plus points. The food is good and worth a stay if you want to relax.

Staff can't communicate neither in English nor in any other language apart from tamil. Rooms are old and house keeping wouldn't come to clean it everyday if your staying for more than one day orders take hours to come. Overall a bad experience
