I've ran out of water in the shower two times. Staff here didn't even try to make us feel welcome (except one older waiter). The food was tasteful, but unfortunately I've found a piece of plastic in my fried noodles. What a nightmare, never again...

We decided to go on a whale watching trip the next morning and realized we will be late for breakfast (included in the room price), so we asked the waiter if breakfast was still possible at around noon when we return from the trip as it was not possible before 6am when we had to leave the hotel. He said... More

I stayed at this place and was planning to stay longer, but decided against it. I didn't sleep at all because of the loud house music until 5 am (halloween party) - we were informed about the party after check in and no one mentioned that it will be impossible to sleep with the horrible beat (and I usually sleep...

Such a lovely lovely man works there. Older chap with a moustache, very short. Ask for him or if he serves you, say you read a review about him on Trip Advisor from Fatna and Jamie :) The guy will make your experience even more special. The other waiters are nice but are a bit too into the surfer fad.... More

Went here on two evenings in a row. The first time service was very slow - waited 40 min for the food and 25 min for the bill. Thought it could be one off occasion due to busy night. On the second evening we ordered ice cream which had completely melted in the cup. Upon complaining about it they promised... More

Rooms are not luxurious but for a average traveler can be satisfied. Staff friendly. Safety guaranteed. Rates reasonable. Food delicious. Excursions can be arranged if you request n advance. It gives you a real country side atmosphere.

We went to the bar/restaurant on the beach. Here is what we think: WHAT WE LIKED - Decent food  - Amazing place, feet in the sand! WHAT COULD BE BETTER  - Overpriced food and drinks (7.5 usd for a cocktail... More than in Australia ...). 20m further on the beach it's 3.8 usd max. Half price.  - The staff is... More

I stayed here all day sunbathing and then had dinner. The service was slow but the price was reasonable. The fish rotti was awful - like a weird calzone with tomato sauce and tuna - not an authentic rotti at all. Dinner was a bbq red snapper for 1300 rupees with barely any meat on. I'd try somewhere else.
