Property was good and better than our expectation. We booked for a wooden cottage, but on check in, found it to be too small to accomodate a family. However, got an upgradation to a room (#108) which was spacious, at no extra cost. The attached balcony was huge, but in comparison, the toilet could have been a little bigger. Room service and overall behaviour of all the staff we came accross was pleasing and satisfactory. Swimming pool was small and cozy, but who cares for a swimming pool when sea was just a stone throw away. The reception also arranged for vehicle for our trip to Satpara (Chilika) which was comfortable for us. Complementary breakfast was elaborate but a bit monotonous. However, the only bitter taste it left was on the last night, when we got packed food from the adjacent restaurant ("Mostly Grilled"), in which the Chicken Malai Kabab, bought for my 11 year old son was found to be absolutely stale, which he did point out but only after gulping a large part of it, and since it was too late in the night, we did not go for reporting it. In fact after all the good experiences of our staying we did not expect that the restaurant could spoil the same in such a crude fashion.
