The hotel lacked very basic things - maintenance and cleanliness. Washroom was not clean at all, bathroom fittings were rusty, dirty and not maintained. A/C rooms had non-functional A/Cs, light panels were not working, bed sheets were not clean. In short, whatever could go wrong, it DID! Well, I know it is a very basic and budget hotel so i didn't expect much, just clean sheets, clean and well maintained bathroom and I know this is not too much to ask for but I was totally disappointed. Will never ever visit again !
It was only one day trip.All Digha bound buses have a stoppage at Mandarmani Chaulkhola. There is no separate bus for Mandarmani. Mandarmani beach is 10 km away from there. To reach Hotel Calypso, one has to make another 3 km journey. Our motor van driver charged Rs 50 per head to reach the hotel. Hotel Calypso is an ordinary hotel. We booked ground floor non ac room ... Room is spacious with attached small balcony.Doors have no stopper.One small television is there.Toilet needs some renovation.Beach is two minutes away.Terrace has a nice sea view. Foods are so so. Cleanliness and hygiene are really issues there. It was very difficult to lock the door. The staffs helped us to lock.From the next morning,room lights stopped working though fan was moving.No solution was found.Parking is available.Two little boys are working there.May be because of their poverty. We felt sorry for them. This was our first trip to Mandarmani. It was ok type.…
Its a simple budget hotel. Clean and tidy. Has all the basic things in the rooms. Bathrooms are clean. Though it is nothing fancy or luxurious, but comfortable and good for staying a day or two. Family and friends can enjoy as the price is not so high but the services are good. Price of food is low as well but the taste is quite good. Access to the sea is a bit clumsy as there is no proper path. Allover as a budget hotel its great. Would love to visit again.
Hotel Calypso is located in and deserted location of Mandarmani sea beach. This is not a resort but a budget hotel. You have to depend completely on hotel for food. Food s delicious. Sea Beach is only 4 minutes walking from hotel. You can also opted from sea facing room in second floor. This beach is less crowded. Vans are available for Mandarmani site seeing.
I spend the last weekend (1st May-3rd May) in Calypso hotel and Resort Mandarmoni with family.The resort is clean and simple one with excellent food and hospitality. The beach will take less than 2 minutes walk from hotel, and the sea can be viewed from the balcony(every room) and windows(specific to room no 101 & 102). If you are looking for a budget hotel with all the amenities and good food you can opt for this one . The only problem is the last 5 minutes drive as the road is yet not concrete,but work is in progress and it will be done within 3-4 months.
