Great views

Hindustan Retreat is in an interesting location with much activity all around. The view of the beach from our room was great and we really enjoyed the sunsets from our porch. The breakfast offerings were meager but good. We requested info on yoga classes but no one ever got back to us?

Super location!

Location is great. All rooms have sea view. Interesting to watch the rituals on the beach. Pool was amazing and pool attendant very helpful. Good hotel for children. Breakfast was a welcome addition. The hotel is tired and there are pigeons on the building (owing to its design) but the hotel is certainly clean inside. The staff generally were very helpful and with three kids we found this useful. This hotel is not luxury but it is clean, comfortable and child friendly - in my opinion. In line with what you pay. Would recommend given the explaination above.
