Popular because of great location and access to beach. The hotel managements heart is in the right place but professionally they are just not cut for the task, especially during weekends when lot of guests arrive. Food is simple,homely but not great value for money. Also it will take at least 60 minutes after order....and they do warn you about it. Note there is no room service except tea and coffee. It is a nice place to lie in Hammock and hear the waves and bat balls rackets are available to play. Rooms are average, but time is spent mostly on the Garden and hammocks outside. Have reasonable expectations and do not expect the moon....you will have good time. Go with a loved one or friends.
