          Nothing worked in room, no electric, toilet did not flush, room not cleaned in four days. Staff then offered no discount for failed service, just called in "the boys" to enforce payment! Again please do not confuse with restaurant which is in front of hotel.

          I have booked deluxe villa from 18th Jan till 21st Jan and have couple of questions. Do you accept credit/debit cards? Are there ATMs near to this resort? Do you arrange for airport drop from the resort and will it be possible for you guys to arrange for pick up from Trivandrum station and approximate charges for both the locations, Thanks in advance. Looking forward to a wonderful experience in your resort.
