6/10 Good

The property needs to be refurbished. The hotel is surrounded by two other properties that are undergoing major construction - so it is dusty with no natural light in the room. The laundry came back with the white t-shirts stained in multiple colours.

2/10 Poor

The building from outside looks good, but the room are not cleaned, the water is cold no hot showers, tv do not work, poor plumbing as toilet does not flush. I was very disappointed, as the staff is friendly, but I will not go back to this property again.

The property is old and not maintained properly, the Ac sound can be heard whole night , not very’s near beach and area surrounding it is very nice
chandrapratap, 2-night romance trip
Verified Expedia guest review

2/10 Poor

Look elsewhere, does not live up to reputation
For being one of the more expensive options in town, we expected much more. Our top floor room with frosted glass walls was dark and incredibly swampy. The mattress was uncomfortable and the sheets/pillows were moist from the humidity in the room. The shower was really gross with a dirty/moldy plastic mat, no hand towels, and almost zero water pressure. There were dead/dying bugs all over the room and an overwhelming chemical smell that gave me a headache. Breakfast was supposed to start at 7:30 but no one was around one of the mornings, and we paid extra for breakfast. Had dinner in the restaurant and it was just okay, nothing special and again, not worth the premium price compared to other restaurants in the neighborhood. Would not recommend this place to friends or family, particularly given the steep up-charge and the dismal state of maintenance. Service was well intentioned and everyone was generally friendly, but it's not enough to overcome the management issues.

The property was very beautiful colonial style villa so it was both charming and gorgeous. However the restrooms were outdated, but the staff did everything they can to accommodate us. Very nice and quite niche neighborhood which was a plus.
