I spent two nights at Lion's Rest and my experience was just fine. However, the girls I was travelling with mostly had negative or unsettling experiences. These were as follows: 5000 Rs went missing from my friends bag when they were cleaning our room at check in (this was only theft and yes we did still stay two more nights despite that?) the same night after returning late another girl found a member of the staff passed out in her bed (they all have an extra key)- to be fair we had all been partying together and in and out of room but a bit creepy, and lastly the place seemed to put out a weird vibe at times unless that was just my hangover. We never ate there or really hung out during stay so not sure about that. Once again, my experience was OK and the price of the room/quality was on par with most I think. If you want a more chill/ safe place though just walk a few metres down the beach.
