these rooms are extremely poor value. they are dark and do not feel clean. there was mold on the pillows. it seems that they think they can charge $US 60/night because there is a small AC unit and a TV. If you go to india for indian food and to spend time on the beach as opposed to watch TV, there are many other guest house type places to stay that are on the other cliff/other side of the strip. A place called Basuri is only $US 13/night and is very clean, well ventilated and bright and has beach views.
i was surprised by all the positive reviews on trip advisor and elected to stay there based on the reviews. we were disappointed and very happy to move out of santa claus villiage to Basuri!
