84 adults on a reunion....it can be a tough assignment for any hotel. The staff at Sinclairs Bay View rose to the challenge and did a good job. The rooms were well aired and clean, the house-keeping staff was punctual and efficient...Views of the sea, palm trees and the sunrise were exceptional, as was the cool lobby and the food...

Pros 1. Convenient location - 15 min from airport as well as jetty where the Havelock ferry leaves from. Close to local sights like Cellular Jail, Corbyn's Cove, Aberdeen Market etc Auto stand bang outside the hotel, if you need to do a quick local trip. 2. Great views - overlooks the sea, and you can see Ross Island as...

One of the best location,very good view,large room,poor maintenance, food and beverage not matching the star rating and prices. Sea facing rooms are having excellent view. Swimming pool is almost an oversize bath tub.If you do not get rattled by indifferent maintenance and attitude of reception staff,you will enjoy at this hotel. Stayed on two different dates in same trip....

Great place, terrace and sea view but nothing that we wanted on the menu was available. Food as well as drinks! Service excellent. One of the few places that took credit card! Good food from what was available.

We stayed at Sinclairs because our boat connection to Havelock island in the Andamans would have cut it fine for our flight. The positives: it's a close (15 minute) taxi ride to the airport and wifi in the reception (it's slow but serviceable, but any wifi is rare in the Andamans). The hotel itself is pretty tired, the breakfast was...

The hotel is at an excellent location but is getting old and needs an upgrade. The price is too high if you actually see the condition of the rooms, they are a bit depressing. The service is little slow while the food is good. Breakfast buffet needs an upgrade as well. NOT A LUXURY BUT GOOD FOR ONE DAY STAY

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. We are happy that you liked the view of the property. Yes the property has been around since mid 80s. In fact today one cannot build a property like ours which is like a cantilever on the sea. That’s our unique advantage. We have challenges of maintenance in view of the location and...

We had one night here after arriving from the Mainland and before taking the ferry to Havelock and it was good for that - the hotel has a lovely view from it's outdoor courtyard seating area. The rooms are basic.

Dear Sir, Your feedback has left us saddened. We are not to take issue with you. But we will seek your indulgence to say that running a hotel in an island remains a challenging task, not the least because of arranging supplies from the mainland. Notwithstanding the constraints and high operational cost at an island hotel, we endeavour to give...

All the rooms are equipped with cable TVs, direct dial STD telephones and modern facilities. Aesthetically designed, the rooms are refreshingly uncluttered and functional.

The Alto Espirito Spanish Bar with its elegant interiors and tempting selection of cocktails and snacks is best visited in the evenings. Guests can listen to soft music while enjoying a game of pool here. The freshwater outdoor swimming pool is open all year round. With a stunning view of the sea, it offers a tranquil experience. The 1,600 sq. feet Wood House is the hotel’s beautiful conference venue opening out to a lovely garden and overlooking the blue sea. ... more   less
