    Good hotel. Excellent staff. Very clean and lovely food. Room 503 had limited hot/ warm water despite them sending engineers to check. Long walk on extremely steep slope to and from beach. Hotel provides car down , but need Tuk tuk back at 100 rupees...More

    Hotel Location is good but one major disadvantage is that hotel does not have direct access to beach as per name suggest on the beach. Arabian sea view rooms are good . restaurant and north indian food is also good .

    Not actually on the beach but sea view from rooms, pool and restaurant terrace. Rooms big, large terraces. Steep but short walk to beach and beachside restaurants and shops, all good cheap and cheerful seaside stuff. Staff a bit grumpy. Food fine.
