Breakfast was poor Had some issues with her rooms - rusty locks on door, broken fans, no water on one morning.
The gardens are idyllic
Some aspects of the place need some serious maintenance , the bathroom and plunge pool half way down the cliff are 2 examples The buffet breakfast was cancelled due to the lack of hotel guests and somethings on the menu were not available leaving the distinct impression that the kitchen was under stocked for the same reason . The staff were always lovely and there to help in anyway they could They did there best to keep up moral in a place that I am sure has seen better days.
The location was great and very peaceful and the staff very friendly .
It appeared that the aryvedic healing/medicine had a negative influence on the people at the resort. They all had long faces and laughing was not part of the programme or of the resort. Everything was done in a hushed way.
The location with the almost private beach. The garden and our room had a great view of the sea.
Because the hotel is located on the North Cliff numerous restaurants on the South Cliff are a bit too far. It's ca 20 minutes walk or a hike by tuk-tuk (a tourist fare of 100 INR - normally should be half that price). You could get there walking on the beach, but it requires some excercise because of the cliffs, and you have to watch the sea tides.
Very nice and quiet place with good service. Very good location on a beautiful clif - though a walk down and up required to take a swim in the sea.
The snack menu was a little limited and they were out of stock of some main ingredients for the salads. there were not enough loungers beside the pool.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. the location was amazing, perfect area to relax in away from the main tourist area. the pool at the sister hotel was lovely.
Lack of air-con
Beautiful view and beach Extremely friendly staff Delicious but slightly expensive food
the cab, booked by the Hotel, to bring me to the airport Trivandrum (1760. -- INR) for my flight to Mumbai, brought me to to the wrong Airport. Although the Hotel stuff had seen my ticket the cab brought me to the International Airport instead to the Domestic Airport. Unfortunately I missed to doublecheck an I had to pay another 500 INR for a tuktuk to bring me to the Domestic Airport, which is 6km away from the International. So please check your flight details by yourself and don`t trust the stuff.
the beach, the food
The hotel is in a perfect spot high above the beach. A very restful spot, with everyone willing to help.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay. My friend and I had the most perfect stay. The beach was stunning and the accomodation was great value for money. Very friendly and helpful staff and were made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning.
I was shocked at the cost of the Ayurveda treatment and would suggest that the charges be clearly spelt out prior to the commencement of the treatment, which they weren't in my case.
I liked the Restaurant and the menu apart from the Ayurveda medicine ! I liked the swimming pool which was very clean (And empty!)
WIFI only in public area. Expensive food related to India. Transportation almost stops at 23:00 and the guest house is far from tourist street.
Good food at the restaurant and also at the breakfast buffet. Try the Pineapple fresh juice! Hot water in the bathroom! Great Massage (not cheap..). Clean. Nice live music show. Beautiful view and beach.
No clear invoice was provided at checkout and the extras added up to more than expected.
The location on the cliff top was excellent and the massages in the associated Ayurvedic centre were amazing. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice grounds and great access to a fantastic beach. Food at the hotel restaurant was also very good, though service was quite slow.
Cannot get the WiFi from all the rooms (ours could not). So many people stay in the main entrance to get a signal. The room we got at the normal Oceano was basic (which is fine), but quite humid. We did not stay much in the room anyway.
We've luckily been upgraded (for free) to the Oceano Eco for 1 night. It is less than 100m away from the standard Oceano and has very nice rooms with views to the pool and the sea. The Oceano is, actually, an ayurvedic center with proper doctors, assistant/masseurs, etc... Which we did not know and enjoyed quite well. The place is really worth staying at: the staff is awesome (genuine people) and the environment fantastic (nice garden, nice outdoor decoration). The restaurant is delicious. The first night we had a buffet (which was OK, but nothing special). We hesitated on the next day to eat there, but realized that you can order a la carte...and we ate there for almost each lunch and dinners for all 4 days. Restaurant is also open for non-guests. They also have remote tables facing the sea for more peace or romantic dinners / lunches. The beach is just down the cliff...once you walk down the stairs. They have scooters to rent at very fair price. I forgot my book in my room, and one staff member came to the train station within 10 min after I called, to bring me my book and allow me to catch my train on time....with my book.
Unfortunately the medicinal aspect of the Ayurvedic treatment sort of backfired on us, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. Otherwise, well, there was nothing we didn't like.
Staff were just outstanding: friendly, helpful, good sense of humour, etc. etc. Beach is absolutely clean and quite private, just down the 182 steps at the end of the small garden. Other guests provided interesting companionship. We do plan a return visit!
Nothing, it was all fantastic
It's a beautiful place and the staff are all friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the birds and squirrels in the garden.
Can do with more sign boards along the road as non-local taxi drivers would have a difficult time finding the location. But after arrival the reception did have a map detailing the surrounding sights. During my stay another guest complained of an "ant problem". I did find a few ants crawling onto the desk but as I did not have any food in the room, that is of no major concern.
In general staff is efficient and eager to help. If you prefer peacefulness and a secluded beach then the south cliff is the place to stay. The Loft rooms are airy have a (partial) ocean view.
My room was in a bad position, and it wasn't very clean and there a lot of ants and water coming inside from the window.
The garten was beautiful, like a paradise! The beach also! Food was great especially when dining alone at a table facing the sea. I would definitely go back (but in another room :)
poor ,really unimporessed,booked way in advance to get a quality room as shown on intrnt a white loft apartment,when we arrived we were given a really poor quality room overnight after alot of fuss they eventually gave us the one i had booked for but took half a day to get it ,,,fighting for something i had paid for n booked well in advance as a quality place slightly more exopensive than we would have paid except that at this point in the journey i knew we would look forward to some luxery so not all impressed but the man there very kind and helpful staff
