I think it's important to note the price paid at this property when reviewing it. We stayed here based on a friend's recommendation who loved it. We were extremely disappointed with the property overall. Upon return we discovered that they had paid $77 per night whereas we paid in excess of $220 per night.
At $77 this property is just about acceptable. It is really not worth anything more than that.
The pool at this property is completely useless - located behind the hotel between the hotel block and the kitchens with no view whatsoever and stagnant air. Who needs a pool when the ocean is that beautiful? Yes, I agree - however you are paying a premium for a property with a pool.
The rooms do not have TV, phones, or any of the amenities one would expect for such a high price. The rooms are very spacious - but necessarily so - they are not nice at all and you really wouldn't want to spend any time in them with their dated furniture and dark interiors.
The location is about a 10+ minute walk down the beach to any of the popular bars and restaurants. This does not offer you much more privacy than the rest of the beach - we would have preferred to be closer to the restaurants. There are no loud nightclubs and such on this strip where staying away would be a benefit.
The only explanation to the mixed reviews one finds on here is the price paid. If we had paid $77 we might have found this place just acceptable (not more). However at $200+ I would look elsewhere.
We spent 2 nights in Aditiya at more than double the rate (>$400 per night) and felt that was worth every penny - I have reviewed that property too.
