“Scenic place with VFM hotel”
Reviewed 4 July 2011

We went to Mandarmani with family and stayed for a night at the Candlewood Park. Rooms were big and the staff was courteous. However bathrooms and rooms require cleaning. Since this is right next to the beach the winds bring sand right into the rooms.

Food was okay, though try only bengali cuisine.

We got a deal on the rooms as we were taking 2 double bedded room. ACs dont work between 8:00AM to 11AM and again between 4:00PM to 7:00PM and they informed that to us before we checked in.

30 feet away from water, although the beach itself was quite dirty.

Had been to Mandarmani this weekend. Well, the trip went off well. Thank god we shifted hotels at the correct time!

First look at this hotel was too good, rooms lovely, view lovely too. But when we checked-in the scene was totally different!

Regarding the facilities:
1. The doors wouldn't lock
2. The flush wouldn't work
3. The ACs and TVs were switched off at ill times
4. The food was not up to the mark
5. Dirty beds and bed sheets
6. Sand all over the hotel rooms
7. WORSE OF ALL - No water in the morning just when you badly need to make a nature's call

Regarding the service:
1. No Cleaning work done
2. No water supplied when the water pumping motors failed - One of our friends had to request another hotel for an emergency bucket of water
3. WORSE OF ALL - Bad mouthed staff who dint know a bit of Customer Relationship Management

Regarding the experience:
1. Location was very good. Rooms were sea facing
2. Very ill managed hotel with awful staff - even the sofas at the reception were in rags
3. Rooms were too costly as compared to the Hotel Facilities and Services

My recommendation - do not even try this hotel. It is better to stay at a non-sea facing hotel than this one!
