          Just a lodge with pool...nothing else”

          Well, I booked a family outing and not sure why I have selected it. It was a last-minute booking and I regret my decision. First, it is outside Pondicherry, near to a beach which is very hard and sudden slope at the sea, so be very careful at least with the young ones. Food quality (preparation) and the taste is nothing great. I won’t call it Ok, if you do not have a choice, then go for it else try somewhere else. In breakfast, they have a fixed menu (DAILY). We stayed there for three nights :(. Staff is helpful and at the same time very rude. My father is 90 years old and at first, we were given a very cumbersome room. We cannot even walk in that room and we were 5 people travelling. Later, when I showed that in the pictures they have shown something else and, they have given us a very small room. They shifted us to the 3rd floor. Room was ok, but one should not charge 5K for that per night. We did not realise that they do not have a lift and my father had real hard time.

          Not so great Stay as expected”

          Booked this review after seeing the previous reviews on this site.. expect the location which is closer to sea (however route to sea is not maintained properly) and swimming pool, nothing so great about the rooms..we booked large beds and got to know from hotel staff that all rooms has same size of beds...AC was switched off for reason unknown... Rooms were not cleaned on daily basis and even bedsheets and Towels were not changed on daily basis.. Drinking water bottles were not provided even after asking.. Receptionist is rude.. breakfast was over by 930am..When informed about this, hotel staff said we can't do any arrangement for breakfast, have it outside only.. small insects were all around rooms..Even Mosquitoes were there.. Coils were provided after multiple follow ups.. No more options available for breakfast.. all the items which were kept were not hot and it looked like they prepared them in early morning.. They even said , this is what you will get when booked through Agoda..Hotel reception said they will always face problems with Agoda bookings and asked us to book through MakeMyTrip or Goibibo.. Nights were horrible as power was getting off and on multiple times with irritating sound..

          Very limited food items available. Room sizes also not affordable when we consider this as a Resort. Not good value for money. The only good thing is Swimming Pool maintained neatly.

          Staff use to forget there is client who try to have a rest and a calm place. They watch and lesson tv to high.they speak to high. They make noise. The room was with an unic window inside and in front of a wall and evacuation. No sea side view except from corridor. And something smelt in, l did not what.

          It is like a Lodge not a resort”

          No lift , be careful to ask for ground floor if travelling with elderly. Breakfast complimentary but closed at 10:00 even though at check in we were told 10:30. All staff excellent except lady receptionist Basanti. Very loud and when constructive feedback given I was told not to expect things like they are abroad even though all we asked for was breakfast to be served till 10:30 just as we were promised at check in. She was Stingy with replacing water bottles and told us none will be supplied on day of check out even though we were checking out at 12 noon. Was a little difficult for our taxi to find the place.. very small entrance gate but opens up .. so look out for the sign board, gate is right there. Food was tasty. Restaurant small and only 6 tables not enough to accommodate a lot.. one table used as a buffet.Had to clear our own dirty dishes even though it is claimed to be a restaurant !! Very clean bathrooms. Bell boys and office Mgr Bhaskar very good service.

          Strict NO NO to family”

          This resort is not suitable for family members, they literally allow guests to drink in swimming pool, room, garden, bar and you see people smoking in parking area all the time. Where do you think your kid and your woman can roam? They have to stay inside the room only. The resort doesn't match the pics displayed in agoda and Google. It's completely different and non hygenic.
