Having read the hotel description we were very disappointed. We had chosen this hotel to be a bit of luxury at the end of a trip when we had stayed in mid range basic hotels. The layout and design aspiration were good but the actual experience was a let down. Everything was badly in need of refurbishment, the "mirror" pool was flithy and the swimming pool looked dirty with paintwork crumbling. Roof tiles were missing so birds were nesting in the holes and covering the balconies with droppings that weren't cleared up. The rooms stank of the mothball "air freshners" dumped over the drains and the rooms smelled damp and musty. Towels didn't look clean and walls were stained. The shower in our first room did not work and it took a great deal of polite complaining to get moved when they couldn't fix it. We arrived at 2pm and were told there was no food or room service available - not great when you have been travelling since dawn. The manager subsequently aplogised and said this was incorrect when we challenged it later that evening - however that was little comfort. .Its quiet reputation is not bourne out as it is next to a nightclub and venue hired out for parties so very loud music blares out at night when there is an event on. There was a so called business centre but the internet did not work when we were there. I know travelling in India is different and you have to adjust, however the resort makes such claims its only fair people know that the place does not live up to it's advertising. A hugley disappointing end to our trip.
