6/10 Good

Fair but needs a good clean/repaint and some TLC
Our room had a strong damp smell, with patches of damp evident on the ceiling etc. The bathroom looked nice, but two wall lamps were very dirty. Shower was good, and the was a pull out washing line for guests to use. There was bare wiring on display over the dressing table, and the dressing table mirror was unusable due to large patches of deterioration. We had a ground floor room, with a small terrace outside (not very clean or inviting, but ok to sit if you are a smoker. One day we came back to the room and noticed a piece of metal lying on the ground. We looked around and saw it was a spike which had fallen from the balcony upstairs! Could have been dangerous had we been sitting there when it fell. I reported to reception who did take note and removed it, and other corroded spikes Which may have fallen later, when we returned next day. Also ground floor very noisy with motorbikes/scooters etc starting up outside the door, day and night The swimming pool is on the first floor and was very dirty, with a layer of sand at the bottom and a dirty water mark right around, at water level. There were just 3 sun beds. I wouldn’t use it and wouldn’t recommend others to use it either! The pool table has a huge tear in it, making it unusable - sorry forgot to take photos of these. Breakfast is served in the restaurant attached to the hotel and was good, with a good choice of options.

4/10 Fair

Firstly let me put down the good things about this place which is it's proximity to the beach. Also, we found the rooms to be adequately spaced. They have a South Indian restaurant on the ground floor and must say their food preparation is delicious. Despite all of this, we still felt a bit disappointed and below are the reasons- 1. The bathrooms- It felt stinky all through our stay with the sink blocked (Highly improper drainage system) 2. Cleaning- They don't Voluntarily clean your room which I found pathetic. Cleaning can happen only between 10am to 5pm and that only when you have given them prior intimation. Also, the reception area is in a Secluded corner away from the main passage way and so there are chances that you totally miss out on informing the reception guy about cleaning while you move of the room in the morning and land up in a mess when you return back. 3. The rooms are facing the main road which happens to be busy during the day and noisy in the night with sounds of speedy vehicles disturbing your sleep.

2+ Star Hotel, no Way 4 Star. Pool Pathetic!
It’s listed as 4 Star, but I would say more like 2 + Star at most. Manager Nigel Lobo was wonderful Guy and it was clean room with Fridge and Tea/ Coffee facilities . Pool is a bit of a joke as too small. It’s worth probably around half of their asking room rate.
