How to Get There
My stay was £205 per night. This was the discounted if booked months in advance. The payment had to be given at the time of booking and was totally non-refundable!First we were were put in a room that quite obviously had not been cleaned after the previous occupant. There were smears in the bathroom, dust, and glitter all over the floor. We were eventually moved to s clean room. We arrived late at night but although there was a 24-hour “in-room” dining facility we could not buy a glass of wine or a vodka and tonic. Liquor stops at a certain time. The minibar at the Alila only has a few small tins in it: some sodas and a couple of beers. The minibar was not chilled. For a hotel at this price, why not a fully stocked minibar with spirits, wine, different beers, etc, etc? If you charge European prices in a low-cost country such as India you must provide a perfect service. Otherwise you are setting yourself up for criticism. The safe broke down twice during our stay, and I would say that the fixtures and fittings at the hotel are generally coming to the end of their life. The hotel operates a disgraceful scam in which a group of pale grey SUV cars sit outside the gate touting themselves as “taxis”. The prices they charge are higher than a London cab for an equivalent distance. Normal taxis are threatened away from the hotel by these thugs.If you want a normal taxi you have to call and arrange to meet them half a mile up the road as if you were a criminal. Our last day was ruined by the hotel giving itself over entirely to a huge wedding. Guests and photographers filled up the swimming pool - all fully clothed. It was disgusting. Normal guests should have been given a full discount for that day’s stay. The staff at the hotel are really polite, friendly and helpful. As usual, someone up the chain is enriching themselves by charging rip-off prices. It will not be the hard-working staff who are benefitting...
Had a lovely short 3 days break .... was taken good care from checking in to check out and we stayed at diwa suites so it’s amazing private peaceful and cosy ... staff is friendly love the spa must try ! Room with view
I would definitely recommend this hotel.The service is exceptionalThey go out their way to make you feel relaxedIt's very close to a beach with different shacks for food, recommend Alex's which provides a free lift back
Standards have slipped here and things need sorting out. This is our third visit and we have noticed a lot of problems. I will write a full review when we depart in three weeks time but sitting under these parasols is quite disappointing the ones on the beach shacks are in better condition.
We stayed for one week from 1st to 8th Dec 2018. The hotel was clean, classy and well kept. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have seen in my many years of travelling. We had an issue with late night noisy neighbours from our next door room and we were moved to a very quiet location with no delay. Many thanks too for the room extension. We were treated so well. A special thanks to duty manager Denzil who is an outstanding example of great customer service. Guests were very friendly and we have made many friends. For those on B&B there are many good restaurants in walking distance. The beach is vast and the Arabian Sea was like a bath! You will be approached on the beach to buy souvenirs but if you're not interested a polite 'no thanks' is sufficient. Most guests and residents agreed this was the best hotel by far, in the region.
