Good location - Close to the French part of the town and beach road. Clean rooms and bath rooms. House keeping staff is responsive. Roof top infinity pool is small but well maintained. Just White bar and the staff are good. Roof top restaurant offers good grilled stuff and the open air sitting offers pretty ambience. The restaurant staff and room service staff seem to lose efficiency after 10:00PM. We 6 went for dinner one night at 11PM; they accepted the order & supplied food but we had to ask for plates, knives, spoons, napkins and water to serve the food! Room service said no refill of "Ice cubes" on a Saturday night at 10PM because their machine was down. So carry you own ice cubes to this 4 star hotel :). Room service staff had disagreement between them when the service stops - First day they said 10:30, next day it became 12:45AM (we were pleasantly surprised and thought they extend it in the weekends) but when we wanted to order at 11:15PM, they said the closing time is 10:45PM! The front office staff was ill informed about local attractions and mis-guided us. We missed a visit to Auroville because we were told that it is not open on Sundays. But we came to know later that it is open up to 1:00PM but then it was too late. Staff needs training and that helps this hotel which is otherwise a nice experience. Visit to Paradise beach is a must. Take your own liquor and I can guarantee you that what they sell in some big shops is not original. Sad :(
