They compensate for he 5 minute walk you will take to the beach with quality, clean rooms, good WiFi, seaviews, and a great price. Solo travellers should expect a better deal and to bypass all the other subpar rooms you will be offered.

I don´t know why we thought it was a good place... the rooms are big, but the things are not in a good state. The bathroom was dirty, the AC was not working in some of the rooms (We stayed with friends). Lights are low... the energy of the place is weird. The attention for breakfast was not so good....

The location is good close to the lighthouse beach. Manager was helpful and friendly. Room was reasonably clean but the cleaning staff did not clean the rooms during my stay of three days. There was no hot water facility and attached toilet was pretty basic. I was charged extra INR 1000 per day on arrival. This was not reflected in...

Very nice, quiet place to stay, with very friendly staff, Spacious room with the balcony with the sea view was a perfect start for our vacations. The breakfasts are standard for India (toasts, tea/coffee, juice, sometimes eggs).Very close to the beach (2 minutes walk to the Light House Beach). Several restaurants (non-veg) and shops are just nearby. Right in front...

“Nice room, nice balcony, some worries with the water pressure and hot water is not always the appointment. Lack of hook to put the mosquito nets. It is necessary that the hotel organizes rooms with mosquito nets, for he who does not know can have sacred surprises.”
