Rat le tour
Lakshminarayana... N

Visited the property with family (wife and 4 year old daughter). We stayed at the Bamboo Hut. Unfortunately turned out to be a bad decision. We had uninvited guests in the night which ate into the food we had carried for our daughter even though kept in the cupboard. We had to dump the food including the containers. We reported this to the management next day and requested for a room change. Very reluctantly the hotel agreed and believe it or not put us in the adjacent hut!!! Simply didn't understand how the rats wouldn't travel to the next hut???? The front office person Mr Rafi was a defiant character and certainly shouldn't be part of hospitality industry. As expected the rats walked into this hut too. We showed this to the duty manager Mr Gopi who expressed only helplessness. We sat up thru the night chasing the rats out. All long the hotel management kept repeating that this was first of kind incident and it was because of the food we had in the room.But there's no rule that guests shouldn't bring their own food. We showed proof that even the soap in the bathroom were bitten by the rats. It is a big health hazard with so many rats. It was disappointing the management never took our complaints seriously. I hope the government takes note of this and book such erring resorts.
The only good thing is the swimming pool. Food is terrible and over priced.

It is a beach front property with scattered cottages.Extensive property which requires a lot of maintenance but even then the maintenance is good. The food is of average quality. The access to the beach is excellent.The swimming pool is good.The staff is helpful and friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

This was our 2nd visit to Dune. The overall experience was a mixed bag. There is a visible change in the property with quite a few parameters which have gone down and that’s the reason that the ratings have gone down. Sunil and team, you guys need to pull up your socks to take this property back to it’s glorious past. We had a great time even though as mentioned above our experience could have been better. Guess with the additional new hotels being added to the brand the older properties are being neglected.
