I came to Mangalore for a three day conference. The organisers recommended Ocean Pearl as the conference was being held at the same.
I opted for a single room which cost me 3500/- which i assume is the subsidised rate.
I arrived early in the morning on the 24th. The gentleman at the counter was very efficient and i was immediately shown to my room (403 on the fourth floor).
The room was a twin bed room. I found it very spacious. In addition to the two beds it had a couple of single seater sofas and one double seater sofa along with a coffee table, a desk and chair. Despite all this I didn't find myself bumping into things (i consider myself a "heavy" guy, for lack of a better word ;-) ). The room was spotless. The bed sheets were pristine white and the bed was extremely well made.
I was impressed with the bathroom. Again, it was spotless!! They've made the shower cubicle a bit bigger than it needs to be. This caused the rest of the bathroom to appear a bit cramped. It's extremely well lit and shaving was a pleasure, although the shaving mirror appeared to perch very precariously from its stand so I did not venture into using it. The shower was fantastic with a strong flow of hot water. All the fixtures, barring the shaving mirror, were top notch.
I did look at the bar menu, although I didn't use it, it seemed quite well stocked. The AC worked wonderfully but I think you had to get up and set it manually as i did not find a remote. The TV was an LED and the size was substantial.
What i really liked about the room was that it was extremely quiet. I think they have sound proofed it pretty well considering the location of the hotel. The bed was divine with pillows to match. This combination resulted in me having one of the most restful nights I've ever had in a hotel located in the heart of the city!
All in all i would recommend this hotel to anybody coming to Mangalore!
PS I'm writing this review sitting in the Coral Restaurant which has come highly recommended. I will post a review once i'm done
