Anand from Havelock, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 3/5 Dining Quality: 2/5 Cleanliness: 4/5

The location of the hotel is awesome, with a private beach, hammocks in coconut farms etc. Lagoons are elegant and well decorated. On the downside, restaurant is not upto the mark. Breakfast was not upto the mark, too pricy for the quality of food and efficiency of the service. But for the food, its a great place to unwind in Havelock island.

There was no telephone in the room and no arrangement for hot water and no room service either Checkout time of was also 8am which we found inconvenient.

It is a decent place to stay in Havelock there is nothing fancy. However for the price it is decent.

rahul from Havelock, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 3/5 Service Quality: 1/5 Dining Quality: 1/5 Cleanliness: 1/5

hotel is beautifully made but very poorly maintained. Every things towels, bed sheets are very old and have holes. Staff (most of which is fromnorth india) openly says guest stay for 1-2 days and they are always full in high season so owner says there is no point in improving things.

Arvind from Havelock, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 2/5 Dining Quality: 2/5 Cleanliness: 3/5

Beautiful place, well designed, large rooms, close to the sea, natural feel because of the wooden walls and furniture. Lacks service - no room service and no daily room upkeep. Just a morning cup of "bed tea" and a bottle of water supplied some time during the day - in a no plastic zone!! I felt they should be more conscious in promoting ecology and protecting the environment - especially when they say that there is no water heater because they have to conserve power! So cold showers - not a very big problem when you have spent the day dipping in the crystal clear water of the ocean just 20-25 steps away from the last cottage (at high tide), but they would probably do well to have a wash / changing room closer to the beach so guests don't carry too much sand into the rooms. Also having to leave the resort to get a snack or a meal is a big downer! And playing in the sea water makes one mighty hungry and thirsty too. At least some local selling coconut water at the beach and a few snacks (jal muri or cut locally grown fresh fruits) should be encouraged to take care of needs of the guests on the beach. Each hotel (including this one) should also ensure that there are easily located dustbins with lids which are anchored firmly (so that wind or dogs do not drop them) which should be cleaned often enough - to encourage tourists and locals alike to be more eco conscious and concerned about maintaining the pristine environment. Hotel staff is very helpful - specially when there is an option of making a few extra rupees - so they booked our outbound ferry tickets at Rs 200 (service charge) - which would have been much less had we taken the help of a friendly auto driver (most of them are - friendly and helpful too). They give you their mobile number at the earliest chance so you can call them back next time you need a ride. Somehow Havelock does not have a single place where the timetable of the various ferries that dock there are displayed! For a Mumbaiite- this is very disconcerting! The locals seems to know vessel names, destinations and timings by heart - but are reluctant to help you plan your itinerary! You have to ask several probing questions to come to a point where you can decide which ferry you can catch and at what time it leaves! The booking office for ferry tickets too has very limited opening times - so if you decide to take a ferry at the last moment, you may encounter some queues. Alcohol (including Beer, wine and breezers) are sold ONLY from a single shop near the jetty, run by a government organization ANIIDCO, and a few bars (one of them is attached to this resort's restaurant too) are quite expensive and noisy. Since the bar/s were not sea facing - it was quite a waste of a perfectly good seaside - if you have to drink where you cannot even hear the sea! This is turning into a Havelock island review - but since the objective was to review the rooms at Symphony Palms Beach resort, I will end here - with an overall rating of 2 out of 5 for the entire experience.

Horrible experience Horrible experience

I will seriously advise not to book this property, its more of a youth hostel or chawl. Rooms are no good, had dampness and none of the basic stuff (AC, Geyser) was working. Front-end staff was very blunt. Water was dripping from roof near buffet area. There are many better options to consider.

Positive: 1. Location. The resort is located right across the beach and nearby market which is basically the "centre" of the island. 2. Food in the restaurant (ordered, not breakfast) was tasty and looked good. A bit expensive though. Negative: 1. Price/quality ratio in general is a disaster. We paid 110 per night and what we paid for is just riddiculous compared to what we could get anywere in Europe for this amount of money. 2. Breakfast is a buffet style, but not so much choice. Poor variety. They serve only typical Indian food and being the only foreinger there is a survivor battle. No cheese, ham, boiled eggs... Only different kinds of dough with several sauces. Eventually pancakes and scrumbled eggs, but after seeing an Indian guest choosing and touching each piece by hand, I gave up on that. As an European, I disinfected all cuttlery (no knives, though) and plates before taking food, well, just in case. 3. Rooms look nice, but thats all. We had rodents in the roof, squeaking all night long while making a nest or whatever. There is a whole wild life in the bathroom, from geckos, spiders, lizards to night butterflies. Have not seen any cockroach. There is no A/C, no money safe, no room cleaning service. 4. Warm water in the shower does not exist. You have to pre-order a bucket of it 1/2h before you might need it. 5. WiFi did not work at all during our stay. 6. Bar looks OK, perhaps the best on the island. Beware that all drinks are served warm, since they do not use the fridges (maybe only water is chilled). No bottle/can drinks, no beer, only juices from big package and among alcoholic drinks, they only had whiskeys. It works until 22.30. 7. Private beach - if they had stayed under the British empire, it would have been a nice idea. It is just amazing how Indians are capable of devastating everything. Such a nice, sceneric beach (while high tide)... When the tide is low, one could see (and smell) a sewer pipe directed to this beautiful sea. What a pitty of devastating a nature! Because of it, we moved to another beach 200m further for "swimming" - it is too shallow for it, but anyhow nice to be inside the clean water. 8. Stuff barely speak English, their level is very basic. Information flow is from one guy to another (and thereby slow), instead of using internet/mobile phones like the rest of the world. We waited for over 24h to get the information about the price of service they claim they have in their regular offer. 9. Offered activities - avoid by all means. It is a rip-off for terrible service. They themselves are not prepared for this, have lack of info and ask for money. We had a feeling we are the first guests actually interested in any of it, because they could not provide any info immediately, but rather asking around how to organise it. We took "jungle" trekking for 2 (1000R each) and had to pay 500R additionally for the transportation (who was sbds friend). Trekking lasted for about 1/2h, through the so called jungle - it is a normal path among the palms towards the beach. Not an advanture at all. We even had a guy - a local young boy who, of course, did not explain anything, we were just walking behind him. Tip: if planning to do trekking, ask the locals how to find a path through the "jungle" that leads to Elephant beach, find a transport on your own and walk on your own, straight forward towards the beach. It is 1,5 km only. It will save you lots of money and nerves.

The lagoon view rooms are great though the bathrooms are pretty bad. It's needs an upgrade. If you are concerned only about the location then do try this hotel. Food is great, while someone stole my gold chain and a pendant. Reached the management but no help. It was surely the beach cleaning workers.

Comical stay for the wrong reasons Comical stay for the wrong reasons

The pictures make this hotel look great but its not. I stayed here for 5 nights over christmas paying over $200 per night. The rooms look great with big beds but there is no hot water, the staff are unberlievably rude and do not want to help. I called room service and asked for 2 glasses for my beer that I bought and was told no and to drink out of the bottle. I then called to order 2 more beers and was told to collect myself. We were not allowed to sit in the outdoor bar area but other people were sitting. We were told they were important people and I am not. Honestly stay away from this place. its over prices and there are nicer places on the island.

Nice cottages near to beach ! Nice cottages near to beach !

by Pavan16 on February 6, 2017

We had booked 3 lagoon cottages for 3 nights near to beach. The cottages were good but little dull on lightings. Restaurant staff was good and offered complimentary milk for the lil ones which was a positive gesture. The beach is nice and looks beautiful during high tide. However, the food at the Restaurant is average with very limited options and the Reception staff needs basic lessons in hospitality !!
