We wanted to have a weekend off from our routine works. We stepped in the Resort from 03.05.2019 - 05.05.2019. We were in a group of 4 (2 couples). The hospitality in this establishment was the amazing and mind blowing part. Each member of the staff contributed to their level best to make our stay memorable. Our room was right near the sea and waking up to this beautiful sunrise every morning was blissful to the eyes. I must say I'm impressed for a 3 star hotel. Clean hotel with necessary amenities and well maintained. From reception to boat house of hotel, all the personal are very helpful, nice and 5 star for hospitality for the whole team. We met with the management team in the management cocktail, that was very welcoming and caring. It was a laudable initiative to mingle and share moments with the guests. Great buffet food and drinks, cocktails etc. Very large swimming pool for kids and adults. Many water activities at the boat house. There are always something to do during your stay where you'll never get bored. Live entertainment every night. Thank you for celebrating my birthday.. We will absolutely come back for these exceptional staff. There smiles made us feel home and always goes the extra miles regarding our request. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful hotel. Don't hesitate to go for it and have an incredible stay. A big thank you to Mr. Jean Marie, Mrs Nashreen, Mr. Oumesh, Mr. Manoj, Mrs Yeshna, Mr. Ayesh, Mr. Elvis, Mr. Jeje.. Read less

We stepped in the resort on 27th April 2019 in a group of 17 pax. Our stay was enjoyable...short but sweet....We would like to thank Veranda Palmar team for doing their best to make our stay a pleasant one. Our welcoming cocktail had an exotic taste of Citronella but unfortunately it was not served chilled. Our check in procedures were quite lengthy and confusing. It was quite hectic as I had to do my baby bump photoshoot. By the time rooms were allocated to us...it was already tea time but nothing was ready when we turned up. Front Office had to remind Kitchen to set tea time. Well we had hot pancakes and fritters.I would really suggest the Chef to add up some more items for the tea time. Secondly, it was strange having pancakes near the Main Restaurant but taking hot drinks on the other side of the pool at the bar which was quite inconvenient for many among us. The pool of Veranda was exquisitely a pleasure for the eyes and inviting for both adults and children......The room of Veranda Palmar rooms are luxurious and cozy with enough space and with all required facilities. We can rate tidiness of the room 8/10 however there were many mosquitoes/flies in the rooms and we had to request for vape to be able to get rid of them. Now coming to the bar the young guy was welcoming and attended to our request compared to Mr. Bundhoo who was quite indifferent and not cordial at all. There was an interesting variety of cocktails provided on the bar, however, the taste was not up to the standard....The service was differentiated between Locals and Tourists. Shaker was not being used to prepare our cocktails which sometimes ended with a bitter/sour taste.... Furthermore, F&B team provided a classy set up for us all at the Main Restaurant. The waiters allocated to our table served us well however there was a lack of staff to be able to attend to our requests simultaneously. Breakfast had what was required. The viennoiserie and all others were appetizing however hot drinks were not being served by waiters. We were told that it was self service. Food during both Lunch and Dinner were relishing. However for Dinner the buffet was quite limited with barbecue as main course.The squash in the sauteed vegetables was not fresh. Else lunch was far better and satisfying than the dinner....with chinese octopus menu..rougaille chevrette...poulet au champignons....Last but not the least, desserts were delicious. We would like to convey our special thanks to Mr.Guillaume from Front Office and Mr. Manoj from F&B who offered a truly dedicated and personalised service... Thank you for your care and attention towards us. We are grateful for the late checkout. We appreciated the atmosphere at Veranda Palmar except the quality service should be improved together with the buffet menu. We shall surely repeat our stay if the above is taken into consideration for a better and valued service. Read less

Kewal was amazing, he really tried to make our holiday for 3 days there brilliant, however the hotel is too small, lacks space, no where to dance especially if it rains, only one restaurant that had limited food and fruit, the red wine was undrinkable and there was definitely a shortage of staff.
