My cousin and I stayed there for two days and I can vouch on the comfort and safety provided by the owners. There are two guys who manage the hotel and they helped us in feeling comfortable and safe . We didn't have money and in order to draw money we had to go to the town which is 3...

The rooms are quite basic and clean. Location is central, just few steps from the cliff. There are several bars/restaurants front of the Mother palace and when they play some music there, they do it on indian way - so as loud as possible! That can be really annoying if you want to go to bed early. Staff were friendly...

This is only my second review Ive written, the other one was extremely positive, but I feel compelled to write it because the staff were so rude, aggressive and imposing. They'd often follow us into our room, demand passports, payment and to fill out forms (3 different forms in total?) just as we'd arrive in sweating and exhausted. When we...

Stayed here a couple of times. Rooms are good, decent size and clean. Wifi good, fridge and kitchen available on ground floor. Location is near to everything but surrounded by restaurants so it can be noisy at times, especially if Chill Out/Charlies is having party and loud music nights. Staff is good but sometimes not around.

My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights in Febuary, 2015. The room was large, shower was hot, wifi was decent, and the balcony was nice. The one complaint was the room was very, very hot as we were on the top floor - we had to turn the fan on full blast even at night. The staff were...

We had booked into Dreams but ended up here. Perhaps not quite as luxurious but a better location as it turned out (60 seconds walk to the beach steps). It was clean and the staff friendly (though occasionally not around). Wifi worked well as did AC. Would recommend. They tend to leave the doors open so you have to be...

The rooms are nice and clean only downstairs one room the balcony is not to use, because the garbage is around the corner and it smells not good...the worst is that is next door they building new guesthouse and the chillout cafe disturbing your sleep for sure almost every night...if you wanna enjoy your holiday check in somewhere else....

Thank you Stanley for our wonderful stay. We came for one week over the New Year and stayed for two! We had a good-sized, very clean AC room with balcony and views to the sea. The hotel has a TV in the upstairs common room and guests have use of a fridge. The hotel is within easy walking distance of...
