I am a regular to this hotel for the last 5 years. The location is really good, the problem is the quality of food in the terrace restaurant. I would rate the quality of food as very very low as compared to any 5 star hotel. This is both in terms of spread and quality of food. Today was quite...

Six of us travelled throughout India for two weeks and had two nights at the Leela. Having stayed at the Leela in Mumbai on several occasions I expected a little more opulence in the rooms as we booked club rooms. In addition when we checked in the receptionist could have been friendlier. The restaurant in the club area however was...

The Leela has great location value, with a nice lobby pool and a good beach. The service is not so good and the food is average. My sister and I shared a garden view room. The room was not prepared on our arrival - we were missing information on the hotel that our family's other rooms had, and the bedsheets...
