Owner is really very helpful. Since we were going to arrive very late at night, we asked if they could arrange some transport for us. He gave us number if an auto rickshaw driver (who was also a nice guy). The room itself had the best view, directly to the sea. You can also see the huge Shiva statue from the window. It was a small but neat and clean room. Bathrooms were also clean (very imp for ladies). The owner was a really helpful guy, he even arranged for further transport for us.
I was in Aryana twice, first on my own and came back with a friend some days later. I would go there again, but get an A/C room, because they have a nice view to the beach and the temple. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We booked this hotel through smartstay.in for scuba diving. A perfect budget hotel with clean rooms. The hotel is 400 mtr frm temple gopuraa. There are no restaurants near by unless u walk for 500mtrs(though there are small tea stalls where u get quite a few snack). We stayed for two days in a Ac and non ac rooms(second day Ac rooms were full). There are 4 beach view rooms, which u can request for. No room aminities. U get hot water only for 6:30am-8am.
We were referred to this by a person of Mavelli Beach Heritage home and the person she referred us to (one Mr Mahesh), took us on a ride by charging almost double of the actual prices for the rooms we booked. The hotel itself charged nominal prices but the rooms are small and the staff is not really friendly. The approach road to this hotel is also bad and the only advantage it has is the approach to the beach (but this is not the main beach and the main beach is located on the other side of the temple). Overall, not a very good option to stay
Book this hotel if you are looking for value for money. Guest house on the beach shore. Don't expect anything more. One big pain on booking in this hotel is that for food you've to walk for 15-20 mins as this is little distant from temple (~1 km)
