Stayed in a cabana in the garden next to the railway. You wake up early in the morning when the trains go by. The cabana is small, with a very small bathroom. But ok for the price. Has a private balcony with garden view. Breakfast is average, but enough. Egg, bread, jam, fruit, juice, coffee and tea. Cross the railway...

I'm giving this place only 1 star simply for the beach it is located next to. The rest is something close to a nightmare. Definitely not worth $32/night, more like $10. During our 6 nights stay there the following things happened: - We’ve got a room in which the AC didn’t work, which was rather obvious but the staff still...

I absolutely loved this one for its location, beach and big deluxe rooms. They have Cabanas and Other rooms too but deluxe rooms are relatively newly constructed and well maintained. Beach Experience was totally awesome since it has private chunk of beach accessibly to its guests only. Staff is courteous and quite co operative specially the beach boy Gullal. One...

We rented a beach cabana- yes it was a little worn and could use a bit of refurbishment- but it was still a lovely and quiet place to stay. The room was a good size and had air con. The bathroom adequate with wet room style shower. It's only a short walk down a beautiful path to the beach -...

Me and my sister stayed here a few nights ago for one night as we are travelling around. The rooms were spacious and clean with everything we needed, the bed was really comfortable. The staff were really welcoming and accommodating, offering us a welcome drink and calling us a tuktuk who took us where we needed to go. Great location...
