Will suggest not to visit this resort and looking at price range you'll find much better experience elsewhere because here both staff and management are least bothered about your holiday experience. Nothing good comes out of location alone.
We had really good time in staying in holiday resort puri with best ambiance and good food. Every thing was neat and clean , good room and every staff with sensible nature.it has a good play ground for children.
Best place to stay at Puri with excellent view. Comfortable rooms, excellent service and awesome food quality with variety of options. Lemonade spa offers great service with various spa option. Hotel managers(Panda babu and Kiran) are really helpful.
We stayed in Room No 411 for 2 nights in Oct21 Type of Room: Family Room, Suited for 4 people and we were 3 including a kid of 4 years old. Pros & Cons: A) Very helpful staff at the reception and hotel allowed early check in at 4.30 a.m. on the day of our arrival without any hassle and questions asked. So kudos for the same. B) Quality of food at the hotel is very good and we tried all types of cuisines and were satisfied with the taste and quantity given the price point. C) Location of the hotel (Both + and -) :- 1) Its at a distance of 1 Km from Railway Station (Rs 100 in Auto) ; 3 Kms from Jagannath Temple & Swargadar (Rs 150-100 in Auto). 2) The Beach, so claimed a private beach is not so private and accessible by one and all but because of scarcity of hotels nearby its relatively empty. But there is sewer connecting to the sea about 100 Meters to the right and thus completely unhealthy to bath in the sea water in front of the hotel. 3) Also the hotel doesn't provide any beach chairs and we had to rent it out from other hotels nearby (basis availability) at Rs 100 per chair or cover seating with tent accommodating 5-6 people at Rs 700. D) Room No 411: 1) It a room with beach/sea view but because of the uncleaned windows and the design of the curtain covering 40% of the window space, the view is murky and you have to struggle to enjoy with the view it provides. 2) The room claims to accommodate 4 people but apart from 2 queen size beds, all other provisions refute the claim. There is only one cupboard, 2 chairs and a small table and room is cramped for space and thus the unpacked luggage finds its place on the floor and bed with no separate space for keeping luggage. 3) The TV provided is size of a laptop screen and barely a single person can have any viewing pleasure. 4) The housekeeping is good though and all our requests were attended well in time. E) Dining (at your own risk) Although the taste of the food is good as stated above but the service is very poor. We had breakfast on all 3 days at their in house restaurant namely Gajapati and our experiences as follows: 1) Minimum wait at your table before we can place order is 15-20 mins. 2) Minimum waiting time for service of each item varies between 30-40 mins. 3) Watch out for Hair follicle in your food since we experienced the same 4) Beware and double check whether the items ordered are actually served since the staff often serve food at their own whims and fancies (We ordered for 1 Cheese Onion Dosa, after 30 mins we were served Plain Dosa ; then Cheese Dosa ; then Cheese Dosa with Onions in a separate bowl and finally our order was delivered in close to 1 hour. We were stunned by the audacity of the staff when they served onion in a separate bowl and told us to put the onions ourselves in the cheese dosa being served. F) Swimming Pool The water is not recycled and their are no bird nets so bird droppings are common in the pool. Happy that we didnt risk taking the dive. Overall, at the given price point and considering the overall experience I will not recommend this property. Give it a miss, if you can and try other properties at Golden Beach.…
The best part of the hotel is that it's right on the beach and close to Railways station. Worst is very little descibe pathetic Service we have highlighted the same thing to them over and over again. The waiter who was taking orders didn't take orders as he said sir please wait even after sitting at the table we had to wait 45 mins for orders to come out. you have to be very calculative while ordering as dishes will take 40 mins to 1 hour. Many people have been complaining about their service. YOU JUST DON'T GET INTERNET FROM THE HOTEL! Guess they don't care.
