Recently stayed at this Eco village, reception on arrival was rather unsmiling and rushed. Location is nice, almost on the beach, but the accommodation is rather spread out and WIFI only in the dining room. Our bedroom was much in need of general maintenance, with a TV hung in the centre of the room, but easily walked into as it...

Those days spent in that hotel were tremendous. I really loved spending time in the beach it was a walking distance from the hotel . Experience of cycling was quite worth it. It also had had an huge outdoor swimming pool. In these few 5-6 from now I'm sure that this was the most unforgettable journey .+

Poor service, crow menace, too many mosquitoes that you cannot enjoy the open environment. We had some food at our hut which has openening in roof at some places as it is supposed to be "naturally cooled". We paid 8k per day to be welcomed by crows that steal food when you are not home, poor service- house keeping keeps...

Was staying in the Garden view room and at best it can be described as pathetic with no proper lighting arrangement and worst were the plastic door mats. When you have red-oxide flooring in the room it became really slippery with these plastic door mats. Coming to the breakfast, least said is better. In the name of cut fruits they...

This has been our fifth time at Dune and we were sad to conclude how much it has lost its original appeal since 2011, our first stay. While the concept still stands, the lack of otherwise much needed maintenance and signs of obvious cost cuttings had a negative impact on the overall experience. On the other hand, while new houses...

We visited here, fortunately just for the one night and I tried hard to find places which looked anything like the website. The whole complex looked very run down, seating in the restaurant was dirty and generally it was just not up to standard. Our room, in the courtyard was best described as a "school classroom of a bygone era"...

The restaurant was very slow bringing the food. After we check out and payed the bill they stop us because they said it was a drinking glass...

This hotel is part of the Dune Eco Village Resorts. We had a huge room, with an enormous bed up on a plinth. They have TV, fridge and a shower room. The service was pretty good. Food was good but came out differently for different guest. I had mine one night all in little pots and the others had their...
