“Neil island (Andamans) & Hawabill Nest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2011

During Andaman Trip, I enjoyed Neil island & Hawabill Nest most. Neil Island (sister island of Havelock- 2 hrs away from Portblair by Ferry) is small island with 3 beaches - with Bharatpur beach being the best. Beach is @ walkable distance from this Hotel and excellent place for beach bathing & for excellent viewing of under-water corals . Beach is peaceful with crystal clear water.
On the same beach, you can find eco huts which are also cheap and good accommodation (Rs 100,200 & 400 depending upon cottage during off season and double this rate during peak season).
Hawabill nest is decent govt accommodation with rent of Rs 800 for double bed AC room ... all rooms @ ground floor with both sides open. Service is also good. Best part besides it being peaceful, is the food being served there by friendly staff. Food is fantastic @ down to earth prices. Fish curry, grilled fish, rice biryani, tawa chapati etc were excellent. However, you need to order in advance.

This is the most decent accommodation that Neil can provide, especially for Indian tourists along with simple but tasty food in a clean restaurant. The hotel staff are quite friendly.

Other places are small huts with minimum facilities.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2010

Extremly friendly and helpful staff. We could chose breakfast between: Indian breakfast or omelette/toast or chocolate pancake with bananas (the best!). Got special (not too spicy) dinner which was very good.
Rooms are basic but with aircon, no moskito net.
Location: in the village, not on beach. This turned out to be a good loacation, especially in the evening.
The island is very small, you can go everywhere by bike.
