Not value for money. Overcharged with no room facility at all. Also, there is no other facility at property like SPA. No lighting at the property. Food is good but costly. Not at all happy. There are other properties around which has better services at lower rate.

A unique property in the middle of the rain forest and less than two minutes walk from the pristine Radha Nagar beach. The perfect location if you are looking for a laid back and peaceful stay. The only drawback is the paths to and from the cottages, which get muddy if it rains.

4/10 Fair

Highly overrated property without basic facilities
We stayed in barefoot resort for 4 days Good things: it happens to near one of the best beaches in Asia that is Radhanagar beach, peaceful property surrounded by forest so natural, food is pricy but good Problems: the property manager have not bothered to maintained the road to the property, to the beach and to the rooms, there are no lights in way to your room, there is no room services (there is not even telephone or emergency button in case you need any medical help, the cottages are far from reception) rustic means furnitures and room fittings and AC maintenance not done for years, they have not bother to provide basic facility of mosquito repellant in room (there are too many mosquitos and insects around particularly during rainy days). There are no activities for kids (except carrom board at reception) Management didn’t bother to put rest benches or hammock on beach (I wonder how would this affect peace). There are some old mats lying around and no guests were using it. Most importantly there is no emergency medical kit available, the nearest medical facility in 10 km away and this resort is isolated from main town. Overall this place may be good for digital detox for some people who are extensively watching TV and overusing Internet (mind you Airtel has good range in the resort) not good for kids, elderly and family travellers. We will not stay here again.

Lovely resort, will be returning
What a lovely resort! The staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for the management team. We were there when the coronavirus hit and they really went out of their way to make sure we were looked after and enjoyed our time there. On our last night, the hotel was going to shut down, with no ide when they will be able to re-open - the staff team gave an impromptu concert and dinner was served out in the open. After checking out, the manager came with us to the port to make sure there was no problem with our ferry booking and that we got away ok. I really cannot speak highly enough of the team there. The food is great too.

10/10 Exceptional

Fully equiped cottages/tents in a somewhat dense looking jungle within 200m from Radhanagar Beach, the best beach in India for sure. The stay at Barefoot is a completely different experience because of the silence, sounds of birds, sea and jungle insects. A perfect place to stay away from all the digital displays (Yes, they don't have TVs). Food is tasty, delicately flavored and hygienic here, though, a bit on the costlier side. The resort ranks high on safety and cleanliness despite being surrounded by a jungle full of insects. Sometimes you may be surprised by live singing performance at the lounge and bar area which is usually filled with foreigners.

Staying at Barefoor has been one of my best vacation experiences. The place is close to Radhanagat beach and is mostly self-sustained. There's an excellent restaurant, massage place, and options of many activities within the property itself. But the most outstanding part for me was the staff- they were always ready to help with anything and everything. I have not received this amazing customer service at any other place. For anyone going to Havelock, this is an excellent place to stay if it fits your budget.

The property is in a dense forest setup and is recommended for people who will like the rustic, calm, quiet and a very welcoming place. The place has added features to make your stay even more relaxing as there is no wifi and mobile network. So you get cut off from your daily cores and can just relax. It is not for people who would like to have wifi and connectivity during their stay.
