Sun Sea Resort, Port Blair
M G Road, Middle Point, Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands 744101
From the condemned island during ther British era, the Andamans have turned into a tourists paradise. The hotel is centrally and ideally located and a great location for shopping. (Hubbies beware!) All the showrooms selling corals, pearls and shells and articrafts are lined opposite the Hotel within a distance of 200 mts. including the Govt. one - the Sagarika. The rooms are neat and clean and the ambience is good. The staff are friendly and serve with a smile. The food is pallatable (breakfast free - a decent buffet with an option of a great lemon tea) and if one wants to step outside, the options are plenty within a walking distance. The bar is well stacked (my wife is staring) and tariff is reasonable. Since the hotel is in the heart of the city, rooms are not sea facing, but that is a blessing in disguise. After exhausting oneself in the beaches, one would actually look forward to relaxing in a room with family. For recreation, one has to watch the TV only; but for bookaholics, Dist. Central Library is closeby (100 mt in the same row)
My overall experience was awesome in this hotel. I stayed for three nights in this hotel. I went there with my family for sightseeing. I reached the hotel easily. Location was very nice. Hotel was located near to the sea beach. Rooms were well-furnished, neat and clean. Sea view was available from the room window. AC, TV and other basic amenities were available. Appearance was modern type. Behaviour of the staff was friendly and services were fast. Check-in and check-out process was smoothly. Food was tasty. Indoor and outdoor activities were not there. This is a recommendable hotel for travellers.
Planned to visit Port Blair with my wife. Booked the normal executive AC room at Sun Sea Resort over phone. The location was nice. The people at the reception and the staff were very courteous. The bedroom as well as the bathroom was clean and presented a fresh look. There was a 19" TV in the room (not LED, but TV is not an issue when you are there to wander). Rooms got cleaned every day. The bed tea and breakfast was complimentary. Food at the restaurant including the complimentary breakfast was tasty. We stayed there for 3 nights then moved to Havelock. Due to the pleasant experience at Sun Sea Resort, we booked it for another night on our return journey from Havelock. This time we were provided with a deluxe suite at the same price of the executive room. I had also read about mosquito problems in Andaman, but we did not face any such problem, even if we opened the windows in the evening. They also provided some flexibility in the check-out time. Overall experience was excellent. The tariff is pretty reasonable. I will definitely stay here again, if ever I had a chance to visit Andaman again. One important suggestion, I would like to add, not only for this particular resort, but to all resorts/ hotels at sea beach destination, is that, they should provide a balcony or an outside protruding window to facilitate for drying of clothes (because near the beaches, its definite that you get wet daily). Andaman is like a dream destination for me. I loved the calmness of the place. All the beaches were neat and tidy. I would love to settle there.
I did not find any difficulty in finding the hotel. This was located in the heart of the city. So I find it very comfortable location. The appearance of the hotel has been just good not excellent. I faced some delay in check-in and check-out procedure, but it was fine for me. The room that was provided to me was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. Amenities were provided in the room. But the Ac that was provided in that room was an old one. So its temperature was fluctuating automatically. There was no view available from the room. I was not very much happy with the room. The staff of this hotel were very friendly and helpful. Their services were also good. Food was provided by the hotel. They provide both veg and non-veg foods. The quality and taste of the food was excellent. No activities were provided at the hotel. I had been there with my family.
I stayed there for 3 to 4 days. I did not face any problem in finding the hotel. I visited there with my family for roaming around in May 2014. I reached there comfortably. Everything was good in surroundings. Shopping mall was near to the hotel. Staff behaviour was good there. They were attending our requests on time. No delay in check-in and check-out time. Appearance wise, it was good. Interiors and maintenance was very good there. Room allotted was spacious, neat and clean. They did not change the bed sheets and pillows daily. All the amenities were working properly. View was available from the room. They regularly cleaned the room. Water facility was available there for 24 hours. I liked the food quality. Indian food was provided by them. I took veg food there. Price wise, it was reasonable. No activity was there. Sightseeing was not organized by them. Finally, destination is value for money. It is a recommendable hotel. No improvement is needed.
