Enjoyed my stay at hotel! Food is delicious! Wanted to try jalsa but the hotel didnt had enough reservation for jalsa dining so the restaurant was closed. Thats the only thing was not satisfactory because i genuinely wanted to try jalsa because they have won award for 7 years.

If you're from America do not stay here -This is not a 5 star hotel - It just has really nice decor -Staff is not trained well and many first line staff were interns that struggled to speak English - I have a team of over 300 staff in India and I know the difference and I am very forgiving on this matter. This staff was mostly comprised of those who are not up to par. -Wifi is a joke there. it was slower than dial up from the 90s Management said they would look into it but nothing changed. It was a total joke and probably purposely throttled. -There are two pool bars which got me excited but no one goes to them. Only twice there were two other people than me and my friend. Kinda kills the experience. This was during a time when they were fully booked. -Their food is pretty decent and really good if you like Indian food. Mama Mia is an Italian place with good food - They had several large events hosted by companies who were staying at the time and as a result would close some of their venues. I thought this was unfair to others. -They prohibit you from bringing your own alcohol -They prohibit you from having guests in your room -They accused me of trying to leave without paying even though I prepaid for this stay and I had a Credit Card on file for incidentals. This happened because I tried to have my bag loaded into my airport transport before checking out. This could've been avoided if I were allowed to check out from my side of the resort but that was not an option.
