“What a surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

Travelling on business and needed to fly into Diu from Mumbai to get to our next location in Jafarabad. My colleague suggested lunch at Hotel Alishan before continuing on our road trip.

You don’t have much choice of eatery in downtown Diu – its not that big! However, looks are deceiving, from the outside it all looks a bit tired and sad but don’t be fooled. It’s reasonably appointed inside and the food was great.

We were told this part of the country is good for seafood and it was. Lovely prawns and a fish I can’t pronounce – both cooked well and tasting excellent.

If you travel through here give it a go.

This is an old worn down building located centrally in Diu city. All the front facing rooms have good view of the open bay, but are badly worn out and poorly maintained; especially their bathrooms. They only have running hot water during the day time. The staff is very prompt and helpful. You will find liquor shops and plenty of eating options in the vicinity. Also you can rent a 2 wheeler(Rs. 300 per day) from shops near the market(2 mins walk) if you want to explore the town & beaches. Try to negotiate the tariff with the front desk manager(Vinay). You can try rates from Rs. 1500-2200 per night for facing rooms. If cleanliness matters a lot to you, forget the facing view and go for the rooms on the back side(1st floor). They are brand new and bathrooms are much cleaner and they are cheaper.

Room Tip: For cleaner & newer rooms go for the back side rooms on the 1st floor.

This is centrally located in Diu city and had nice spacious rooms. Room service is also very prompt and staff is friendly. But it looks a bit worn out specially the bathrooms. My room even had lot of cockroaches which did not go even after sprays from hotel guy. They changed my room the next day and the new room had only 1-2 cockroaches.

Secondly, its not a beach resort and dont have 24 hr hot water supply. Hot water is available only in morning from 7 to 11. If you come in the evening full of sand from a beach and require a warm bath, you wont be able to get in this hotel.

Room Tip: Prefer sea facing rooms on first floor.

This place have a nice clean rooms, with clean bedding and bathroom. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel location is very convenient, it next to little bazaar and internet, and walking distance from bus station. There is outdoor cafe in hotel next to the Aalishan and they cook fast and tasty! :) Also hotel have a security guard, who keeping away beggars, and he can keep eye on your scooter (if you decide to rent one)!
