Spending a week at the hotel for a meeting. Although the staff are quite pleasant, I think there is substantial room for improvement. Access to one of the stores/kitchen was through our meeting room so hotel staff keep walking in and out. Attention to maintenance of hotel facilities (including ensuring cleanliness of the beach area) and ensuring quality finishing are needed. The hotel should also consider brewing coffee instead of using instant coffee and restaurant staff should be urged to be attentive to all customers.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean probably a better bargain

Reviewed 22 November 2011

Location is good, by the beach, but my stay - planned for 3 nights but cut to 1 - was bad. Room service (a pizza) took 1.5 hours and was uncooked. Internet didn't work. Service was bad. Oh, and the breakfast was really not good - stale rice krispies clinched it. I felt a bit bad being "picky" in a place where lots of people barely have a roof above their head, but at $120/night, this was a rip off.

Room Tip: Kunduchi Beach!

This hotel is fine - but they have a t.v. at the heart of the hotel, in the restaurant, near the beach, that blares from 6:00am until you beg them to turn it off repeatedly at around midnight. I am not sure if they turn it off at all otherwise. This makes it difficult to sleep to say the least in ocean view rooms, but it also means that whenever you are eating, relaxing by the pool or in general lounging you have to listen to random television - usually in English. It makes trying to relax and listen to the ocean more like being in an airport lounge.

The people are nice here and the food is okay but whether for business or pleasure it isn't relaxing or peaceful. Also, the wireless internet isn't great. It exists but you have to work for a signal and get interrupted a lot.
