Location wise Namaste is best placed. Probably only resort on Om beach connected by proper roads! The reception guys were rude and did not provide rooms on time even though they were available. The cafe is the best part about the resort. The food was good with decent options for breakfast.

Very good place to stay with excellent service from the staff. Liked the way the cottages have been designed and food can be better. Generally coastal areas would have good seafood. But, I was disappointed with that in Namaste Cafe. Amazing place for friends anytime of the year, even during off season in Gokarna, Namaste does not make you feel that like it.

The hotel is nice and clean, the service is also good. You have a very nice view from the hotel restaurant at the first floor. It is on the beach. The service of hotel is good and the beach was enjoyable but as we went in monsoon season we couldn't enjoy the blue water. It is advisable not to travel here in monsoon weather. Also you need to book early as their is so much rush in proper season.

The place was good but price are little bit expensive in restaurant. Overall, it was good place to stay. Our stay was amazing here. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Each one helped us to find things around the city and more. The room was also nice and spacious. Very clean and up to date. We liked that the TV had some English channels in it. The complimentary breakfast was also great.

About Gokarna:
You may not get a warm welcome if you don't know Kannada. At the same time you will treated good even if you try to speak some broken Kannada.

If you are dreaming to try sea food from the road side shops since its a coastal area, sorry guys this is not a place for you. It's surrounded by temples and its a holy place.

If you are planning to stay in Namaste Cafe, then you don't pay more than 150 for your transit to the city in any auto. The easy and best way is to hire a bike (ACTIVA) in the local mechanic shop for some Rs:300/day.

About Namaste Cafe:
Receptionist is not too good to receive you with big smile or so, since its not a resort / 5 star hotel. You can ask them to show you the Cottage / Building / Air conditioned Building. It purely depends on your preference what you want since almost all the rooms are of same size.

Pros:
1. Sea facing almost you will feel as if you own the beach.
2. Secured, beaches are safe to roam around.
3. Smoke + Drink, you can drink plenty of Lager beer if you love it.
4. Food, I love the food of Namaste Cafe with a decent price tag (worth the money). Try King fish from Namaste Cafe for your dinner.
5. You may enjoy if your are a pet lover. There are some dogs/puppies which accompanies you in your beach walk and stays with you in restaurant as well.

Cons:
1. No mobile signal near beach. You may not be able to use internet near the beach due to weak signal but, you can make a phone call in the beaches.
2. Again you may not get mobile signal in the rooms that you stay.
3. No Television, you may just want to relax on the sea shore if you really want to watch news, stocks, addicted to get sleep while watching TV, then you need to consider this.
4. Rooms should be kept clean on your own since the room service will clean it only when some one vacates.
5. Rooms are smaller in size and comfortable for a couple.

Tasty food (salads and red snapper fry) with music in the Silent breeze from beach makes the stay a memorable one. Accommodation, service, guidance to the travellers, and the scenic beauty pleased us to visit the same spot again. Somehow missed out the ayurvedic spa this time and wish to experience it in the next visit.

I was on a driving trip from Chennai to Goa via various places en route. I reached Gokarna quite late on 5th August and had to stay at namaste cafe under the circumstances.

And I write my first ever review merely to recount the horror of this place. I have never seen staff as belligerent as this place at a tourist destination notwithstanding the facilities they are able to provide.

Coming to facilities I paid 2000 bucks for an AC room for a night without any complementary breakfast or frills. A rude security guard was the opening fare for the night. Had I any choice I wouldn't have stayed in this room for even 100 bucks. It was smaller than a wash-room, smelt musty of monsoon rains, creeping with creepy crawlies, dirty sheets and no hot water.

The entire place wore a barren dilapidated uncared for look and staff accepted the fate accomplice. The best thing I could do was to run as early as possible next morning, visit aatmalinga, buy some prasad and wash my sins of staying at this embarrassment of a hotel.

It was pleasant stay and had very good fun, also the location was very close. The restaurant service and food quality was very good and neat. It was very close to beach and it is an awesome beach. The room can be little bigger and bed quality can be improved. Bar set up was very good. Free WIFI connection can be provided. Beach was so clean and maintained very well. Washroom was not maintained properly that can be maintained better. Compared to the other hotels the cost is very good. Games and play area can be added.

Location of the place is amazing. If you like to travel alone. This is a great place to be. Cafe is right on the beach, you can sit and relax in the cafe. Read a book and enjoy the view of the sea or you can just roam around the place. Cottages are beautiful although little old fashioned. Beautiful experience over all!!
