The GM Suresh is very helpful and even provided music piped throughout the day which we suggested on our last visit.

The bars are well stocked and of course there’s happy hour at the beach bar. The rooms are clean and the cleaners come in daily and change towels make up bed and replenish anything that’s been used. We stayed a week and got sun loungers & umbrella every day whatever time we went to the beach we didn’t witness anyone leaving towels on them. I would certainly return without hesitation. Read less

So many negative reviews…. Are you sure these were even at the hotel? We had a fantastic time, a two week stay. If you read the negatives, just remember it’s what you make it, and we absolutely loved this hotel. It’s not pretentious, and I’d recommend to anyone. The young men on the reception desk are just lovely.

The hotel is pretty good. Room was lovely. Shower, although dated was fine. There is a fridge and coffee machine, kettle, ironing board and iron and condiments for kettle. Food on dining room was good. Reception staff were excellent, Josef in particular going above and beyond. However the cleaning staff left a little to be desired and need some organising! As do the dining room and bar staff. Overall I would only rate this as 3 star hotel. Read less
