La chambre de la résidence était très sommaire (mais pour le prix on ne se plaindra pas), et la salle de bain commune très sale. Le propriétaire n'est pas particulièrement accueillant. La seconde nuit nous avons été surclassées à l'hôtel, beaucoup plus propre et salle de bain privée. L'emplacement est un très gros point positif : en bord de mer, plage privée, restaurant juste à côté (très bon !) et centre de plongée Poséidon. A 10min à pied du site de départ pour Pigeon Island.

We stayed in the Pigeon Beach Hotel, not the Residence which has much smaller rooms and no wifi. Our AC room for a family of 4 was comfortable and fairly clean. We had to ask for extra sheets and for the room to be cleaned but the staff were happy to help. The wifi in the lobby reached the upstairs balcony but not our room on 1st floor. There is a washing machine which does a massive load for 500 rupees, Anton from the staff then hung up all our washing for us! We found the location extremely convenient as it was right next to Poseidon Diving and the beach, which has a cafe open all day. Some noise from the diving cylinder compressor at times. We were there in August, hot and dry with virtually no mosquitoes. There are cute dogs living on the beach. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed with family at the adjoining Pigeon Beach Hotel (same owners/managers). The property was run down and certainly over-priced for what you get.....gritty thin mattress, one thin sheet to cover the mattress (no sheet for us), one towel for two guests, a leaking basin, no soap holder in the shower, dirty walls and floors, cigarette butts strewn all over the balcony floor (for the whole duration of our stay) and an incompetent Resident Manager. The only positive is the ‘hotel’s’ location. We won’t be back.

That's a pity this hostel was in such bad condition, seeing its location on the beach... They could do a really good thing out of it. They were a lot of cockroaches in the dormitory (they actually ran over me during the night...), bedsheets not clean and no cleaning in the rooms, no fridge for guests, and internet connexion only in the lobby. I would not recommend this place at all, until they actually take care of their customers...

I stayed in the "hotel" section. No towels available, broken toilet seat, mouldy bathroom, one tap for shower (usually cold water), very little info was given about where to get meals etc nearby (which was not that simple to work out). Wifi worked intermittently and only in the lobby. I was there for a week and not once was my room serviced. Though it was relatively cheap I'd expect better for that price.
