“Best place to stay at Port Blair”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Sea Facing hotel rooms. Good view far away to the sea. Good Ambience, no question for service. Hotel staff very friendly and good food and beverages. The location is also great when travelling within the city.

Room Tip: Book the rooms in advance for discounts. Sea facing room is the best option.

Basic resort that is fine for a stopover en route to the islands or a boat trip. Nice enough bar area with friendly bar men (and ice cold beer), but dining area and food is pretty basic. Much better option to go to the restaurants at the next door Sea Shell hotel - food there is fantastic, with modern Western style restaurant downstairs, and bar on the roof which serves excellent snacks.

Room is basic, clean and a decent size, with large bed - although very very firm mattress and creaky bedframe. Linen was clean.

There is aircon and fan which keep the heat at bay. Bathroom in need of serious renovation, but adequate enough, and reliable hot water. TV and some cable channels.

Hotel probably has some of the best wifi in town - which is not saying much - expect painfully slow connection speeds compared to home - but at least you can get online.

Fine for a day or two on stopover.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room - at least you get a bit of a view. Expect some of the rooms to have perma...

This hotel is an ITC property and is one of the better places to choose from while in Port Blair. We stayed at this hotel after our return from Havelock Island. The hotel is quite close to the jetty (about 1 KM after which there is a way up). The hotel has a good rooms facing the ocean and one can spend a lot of time sitting in the balcony overlooking the ocean (Only some rooms offer this), watching the ships sail. The bathrooms on both the rooms we took are in serious need of a makeover. Not only are they small, but also with old tiles and layout.
The swimming pool at the hotel has a queer concept of having seawater in it which looks quite dirty. There are a deep and a shallow pool separately.
the food at the hotel including the breakfast is quite good, though a tad on the expensive side. Service is just about ok as there seems to be a little shortage of service staff.
The reception lobby is open and hence at night it is difficult to ward off mosquitoes without the staff turning one of the big fans towards yourself. Wifi is available, though, only in the lobby.
There are games in the hotel like badminton (open court) and table tennis.
There is a nice path to walk in front of the hotel besides the ocean.
As far as travel o the city is concerned, one can travel with autorickshaws, though they might charge a little extra for climbing up the hill to the hotel.
What we liked very much in the hotel was the attitude of the staff, especially in the travel section and reception.
We wanted to take the ocean walk at the last moment and the travel department staff esp Mrs. Haseena took great pains to somehow manage 4 seats for my family. The staff also helped me plan my travel to Chidiya Tapu and the beach close to it.
Would try this hotel if I had to revisit Port Blair

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher floor facing the ocean

Great views of the andaman sea, good rooms, amazing setting of the common area - the bar, the restaurant and well priced. We got an amazing value for money deal and hence rated this 5 star instead of 4 star.

The fortune resort is quite close to the jetty area for people traveling onwards to havelock and hence it's the perfect place to stay as a stopover. We saw a soccer match in the night having beer at the bar with the andaman sea facing us and great breeze making the atmosphere simply mind blowing. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best hotels of Port Blair. The hotel has a great view from its rooms as well as restaurant. Some of the rooms have balcony facing the sea which is very beautiful. The staff is good & helpful. The food is average. The place is close to Cellular jail, Water sports complex, Market area, Jetty. It has a small garden and a small swimming pool. They also have a TT table.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony facing the sea.

Rooms are not too bad but bathrooms are small and need makeover. Service of travel desk was poor. View from lobby and the greenery inside the premises is nice. They offered us packed breakfast as early as 5am in the morning - that was nice, however, the quality of breakfast was poor.

Location of hotel is nice if you are planning to take jetty to Havelock island - near jetty, near airport, near Rajiv Gandhi sports complex.

Not recommended. No where near a four star hotel. Certainly not worth the price it is charging.

This is a long pending review.

The Good:

1. The views from the lobby were wonderful.
2. The food - good variety, nothing memorable, breakfast was the best part. They used to pack us delicious cheese sandwiches, sausages and juice for lunch during our sightseeing trips. Bar was average.
3. Service was good overall.
4. Pool was small but good.

The bad:

1. The rooms - outdated. In serious need of a makeover.

The beaches in Andaman are wonderful, the hotel, not so. Skip this hotel is possible.
