“Great Place but unprofessional management”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

It is an ideal place to stay at Port Blair in this budget. Simple rooms with bath, But the moment you ask any extra service, the first answer is a Big NO. It may be asking for some snack or any food item, soft Drink or Plain Ice, not available. If you are staying longer, you cannot request the change in menu, as " this is what we give and you have to take it, you like it or not" as if you are staying in a Hostel and not a Hotel. The Managers, have a very big attitude problem, which has trickled down to the working staff, Request the management to put the act together.

Room Tip: all rooms are the same as they are built like huts.

The resort is away from the city but very close to Corbyn's Cove Beach.One can reach by walk to the beach.A very economical option near to the famous beach in Port Blair.Located in the lots of greenery surrounding it.The rooms are nice having names of Flowers instead the numbers.

The food at the resort is also good.

But the do not look forward for any information or booking of fairy to other Island from the resort desk. Since they do not have the proper information about the fairy's.Actually they inform me that I will get the ticket for Neil Island in the same day. But it didn't true.You have to book it prior to 2 or 3 days before.So that is very bad experience for me & I miss the Neil Island though I have the booking for Resort at Neil Island.

Room Tip: Go for Deluxe room only

My family and I were on holidays 1-6 January 2012 in the Andaman Islands and in Port Blair we stayed in this hotel. Air India, Jet Airways and Kingfisher Airlines have daily flights to Port Blair from Calcutta and Chennai early in the morning, the trip takes 2 hours. This is an excellent place - we got a reference to this hotel from friends. The hotel tariff is very reasonable and in fact, we got a good deal for them to take care of all our needs - three meals a day (lunch is usually packed), local transportation, entry tickets (such as, the Cellular Jail), boat rides to other islands (as high as INR 800 one-way per person to Havelock Island). This way we were free just to enjoy our holidays. The best part was the friendliness of the hotel staff - always helpful. And they fed us good food. Predominantly Bengali food but they also serve south and west Indian as well as vegetarian food. Rooms are spacious and clean. On the negative side, as of date, they do not have internet connection or telephone connection in the guest rooms but with a BlackBerry as a companion the negatives are not worth mentioning. For laundry one has to handwash clothes and dry in a clothesline, or go to a commercial laundry in the town about 5 km away. Overall, this hotel became out home during our holidays there. I would recommend this hotel to any serious travellor to Port Blair.

Room Tip: Deluxe cottages, only for a little extra money, will get you a bigger room.
