    The room-rates in US-Dollar are billed in Rupees with a very bad change-rate! My Sri Lankan husband was treated like a beach-boy, that was rented by a rich white lady!!

    Facility and the location(beach is just in front) was nice.

    At first staff told me there is no availble room though my booking was completed 1hour before my arrival.Needed to wait till someone cancelled.Needed to ask to unlock the window 5times.Other rooms internation phone calls were charged to me when I checked out. One staff was good, the others were so irritating.

    Very good

    We stayed in a three bed room apartment. The rooms and the living room were spacious. All the rooms have balcony overlooking beach or city front. Rooms were clean, Spacious kitchen with washer and stove. Check out was a breeze so long as you haven't consumed anything else.

    Kitchen did not have any utensils. Not even a coffee maker, or glasses. This is very strange considering the fact that we booked the room with a kitchen. After calling the front desk they sent us a coffee maker and couple of utensils.

    - The hotel room i got has no differences from the rooms i get for 40 dollars. infact it is smaller than those. So the rooms are expensive. One of the reason i stayed there was it was near to the place i had to attend for my work and the free Wifi service mentioned. but wifi is not at all accessible because poor reception. it sucks. not good for business people. so i dont think there is a need to stay in this hotel instead of staying the cheaper rate ones i mentioned at the top in a business trip

    Nice view over the sea.

    Every morning at 5:30/6 am you will be woken up by very noisy trains (hotel is next to rail tracks). Breakfast not included and very expensive. Dirty bed sheets. Hotel not worth the money.

    The location

    Well what can I say, after arriving we started to take bets on how many calls we would make to reception/housekeeping. We booked an apartment, so on arrival - no toilet paper, no towels, the kitchen was locked (we had to ask for it to be unlocked), the fridge wasn't working properly, the microwave didn't work, and best of all there was no crockery or cutlery. Apparently we had to pay for this! The front desk manager was very un-helpful

    The front manager reacted quickly to my complaint about the room which was good.

    Was given a dirty and uncomfortable room at first that was far below what to be expected. The train passes loudly just outside the hotel starting early in the morning. With a few exceptions, the front staff was arrogant and almost unfriendly. A big hurray for the bellboys though.

    The lady on the reception was good and professional.

    They charge me upfront all the amount though they need to take the approval of the amount only. It seems some staff members doesn't know the difference between two and little knowledge is dangerous. There were Bed bugs there so beware of them

    Guest rating

    There is absolutely nothing to talk good about this hotel, cockroaches creeping into rooms, no door locks to balcony of rooms, delayed room services, no courtesy, although requested for a wake up call at 4.00 A.m, there was no wake up call, bad food, stale pastries in breakfast, charging very exorbitant rates for food and room,refrigerators don't work.

    Very good

    Had the space for all my friends at the same apartment.

    Restaurant is a bit disappointing and expensive.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Very clean and well maintained. Internally the facilities were quite new and modern.

    The room seemed to be missing fundamentals such as a fridge and tea and coffee facilities. That was disappointing.
