We went and stayed there for two nights on 22 & 23 Aug'2014. The location of the (deluxe) rooms are good and every deluxe room has balcony with the lake view. But you can't access the lake from the resort, rather you have to enter into the lake from outside from the water sports complex and giving the extra entry charges there. The room conditions are not good and in one of our rooms, water was leaking at two points from the ceiling inside the room when it was raining outside. All rooms are in similar condition where water can start leaking at any moment.Informed this to reception but was told that these things may happen and can't be avoided. Not expected this response. Apart from this we are also charged Extra Person fees though we didn't require any extra bed. The didn't told me this earlier when asked. Swimming pool is there but not having suffucient infrastructure for an adult to get into the pool. Not got the service expected as per the room rates. Food quality is average. The main and the single positive point what I can say about this resort is the location.
