“awesome place but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2013

I went there with my boyfriend and first thing at the reception was the guy couldn't speak English, then the rooms have no mosquito nets and yet the place is infested with mosquitoes. we asked for a mosquito net and apparently they couldn't get one from another room (n yet the rooms were quite empty) we spent half the night killing them. when we asked for spray, they were like "sorry, this sort of thing never happens". otherwise, nice indian food and i loved the trip to sinda island on a boat that broke down more than a dozen times.

I visited sunrise last week and i was provide with the best service that I did not imagine, the waiters were charming and more willing to provide service, thanks to Andrew. The rooms were well made and when I left and came back in.
They have a good garden with a nice and calm sea view beach bar, where i relaxed and had my drinks in a good atmospheric condition.
Food was well prepared and time taken was quick.
I think I will have to get back there soon.

We stayed for 3 nights in the beach hut..the location is awesome and the food is delicious but the management lets the place down. We did not have any tv in the room and also had to ask the housekeeping staff everyday to clean the rooms and they took ages....The management does not know how to run the place and did not even offer us discount for the room. overall its was enough for our 3 night stay....lovely over the weekend with music and atmosphere.

Beautiful grounds, comfortable rooms and very generally peaceful setting. Saturdays and Sundays can become quite noisy as they play loud music on the Beach Bar deck in the afternoons, but just take your shoes off and dance on the beach. Service can either be very good or non-existent depending on person serving you but there are a few people like Chriss and Chef Dinesh who made our stay very pleasant. Always ready to accomodate us and willing to go the extra mile to make you happy. Kitchen closes at 23:30 hrs but its best to be there early as most of the restaurant staff tend to avoid taking orders when they are about to close the kitchen or bar.
Good value for money! :-)

Room Tip: If room space is not a problem for you choose Sea View, smaller and cheaper but better view as they...

We stayed for 6 nights. The location is beautiful, with lodges right on the beach. The rooms were filthy and not cleaned once during the stay, despite repeatedly asking. There was no hot water, and towels were taken away on the first day and not replaced.
The staff were alll very rude , especially the management, and service was very slow. There were only 6 guests when we stayed, but still had to wait over 30 mins for an omelette for breakfast.
It is such a shame the management are so arrogant and rude as it could be such a lovely resort in a beautiful setting

Room Tip: as always, if you are prepared to pay more, you get more, but there are other more expensive hotels...

Our room was a haven for mosquitoes and, not surprisingly, I ended up with malaria after staying there. There was a net but it was full of large holes. Since it was the only place I got mosquito bites, I assume that's where the malaria came from. I also agree with the other reviews that state the management is unpleasant.
