I traveled there by my own vehicle. Hotel location or everything was pretty good. Service and the behavior of the staff were good. Hospitality was very good. Look from inside and outside of the hotel was pretty good. Room was spacious and maintained. All amenities like TV, AC, etc. Were functioning properly in the room. Breakfast was complimentary. South Indian and continental food was provided by them. Taste and quality of food was good. They had swimming pool, indoor activities like table tennis, Pondicherry as a destination is good. Location of the hotel was very good. Appearance of the hotel was also very good. Booking was done through online. It was easy. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. Booking and front office people were excellent. Overall services of the hotel were very good. Room was excellent. They gave welcome drink. Food and drink was average. Activities were also average. I went there with my wife just for relaxation in August 2014. I can recommend this hotel to other travelers. It was value for our money. Food part should be improved.
Overall my experience was good in this hotel. This hotel was located very conveniently. This booking was done by my company. Hotel look was very beautiful. My room was tidy and very big and facilitated with all basic amenities as fridge, TV, bed, coffeemaker, etc even lake view was also available from my room. Both food veg and non-veg varieties were present in the hotel, but food was normal in taste and quality wise. Indoor and outdoor games were there for more fun. I travelled Pondicherry place with my colleagues. Reception facility was average. Servicing staff was good only.
I stayed at Ocean Spray Resort along with my wife and kid. We were looking for a relaxed vacation and wanted to spend some time at a beach resort, however we couldn't find one at short notice and decided to settle on this. From the photos on their website, this place does look like something out of this world (out of India at least). After a good long drive from Bangalore, we finally reached the place. It appeared out of nowhere on the ECR road. Away from traffic and away from the hustle and bustle of the city The place did not disappoint! It appeared almost as magical in person as it did in the pictures. The place is huge and built on a man-made lake. The staff is extremely friendly, courteous and polite. They made our entire trip a pleasure. Among the amenities, the room was well furnished and clean. Housekeeping and room-service staff was very nice. The lighting, controls, switches were very modern. The furnishing was top-notch. The room was liquefying and offered a very good view from the sit-out. In short, it was better than expected. We were offered breakfast and dinner food coupons as part of the package. Breakfast was so-so and breads were cold. They had good South Indian food, but I am a continental food person and I would have expected more. Dinner was not too great during the weekdays with a limited spread, however the weekend dinners were too good They had a huge spread of dishes and had about 15 desserts on each of the two days. This was the highlight of the trip. Of course, connectivity to Pondicherry and Auroville is very good. We made a lot of day trips between the hotel and various tourist destinations. The hotel was a quiet hamlet to relax when we got back. There is a nice but deserted beach behind the hotel just 10 min walk away. It is nice to go if you are a group, but I'd advice against going there alone or sending off women alone, as it goes through a small fishing village. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel as a must visit !.
I visited the Ocean Spray Hotel, Pondicherry for 2N/3D. It was one of the best hotels that I have visited The property is just amazing. All the rooms have an spectacular view of the beautifully developed waterfront. We had taken up 2 Ferns(Basic) rooms. Except for the Sky Jacuzzi its similar to the rest of the rooms. Swift check-in, courteous staff, an excellent continental breakfast buffet. The best part of the hotel is there pool. Its exactly like the pictures put up on their website. Even though it is not located in Pondicherry city limits, it is right up the highway and you have plenty of transport options. And for people looking to party, there is a disco-cum-bar. A DJ plays during the weekend for anyone looking to party The 2 letdowns of this hotel are its inexperienced staff and its dinner buffet . Most of the staff do not speak English or Hindi fluently which is a big headache and also most of the staff do not know about the services offered or events happening in the hotel. The other main issue I had was with the dinner buffet. Very expensive and not worth it. Its better to order something simple from the a-la-carte menu than wasting money on the buffet My advice to people planning a holiday to Ocean Spray is that get the information correctly . >While booking specify if you have any specific demands like separate cots, room not above the disc etc . >Do not trust the hotel staff for any relevant information. Contact the front desk . >Enjoy their sumptuous breakfast, go into the city and try the local delicacies if possible even dinner if on a budget. Food is a bit on the higher price range . >For people travelling with friends (all girls trip like me) without any personal vehicle, be sure to come back to the hotel by 7 PM to avoid any untoward incidents . >Also they do not have a private beach. But a public beach is 10 minutes from the hotel . >And most important GOOD QUALITY WATERPROOF SUNSCREEN.
This is our first travel after our child was born and he was around 8 months when we took this trip. So we were looking for a resort with nothing to do but relax. We got good offers from one of the internet sites, otherwise this resort is a little expensive The room which we took is the fern/garden view which is the least expensive of the rooms. The room was good, close to the restaurant and the balcony has a view of the pool in the resort. The room was a twin bedroom, which the staff neatly joined into a large single bed. Each room has the standard flat screen TV, mini-fridge, security safe etc. The quality of sleep was good and its quiet in the rooms The shower area in our bathroom had one quirk. While the toiletries (soap, shampoo etc. Were well provided, the shower area did not have a soap box or holder. So where does one keep them when taking a shower. :-). There were a few brief power cuts during our stay and it takes some seconds before the generator takes over The balcony is very spacious and is something to look forward to. There are rooms with a Jacuzzi on the balcony which I would recommend if you are looking at options Overall, the resort is stroller friendly except for a few areas around the pool. Due to the large pool and the water body around it, the walk around the resort is very nice The restaurant is nice and the buffet is good. We stayed a few days before the Christmas holiday so the resort wasn't overbooked yet. For the crowd at that time the restaurant was nearly full. During peak season one may feel that the restaurant is crowded We stayed for two nights and two days and chose room dining for both nights. The food taste is good but in-room dining is more on the expensive side. On the plus side, the hotel is on the east coast Since, we were with an infant we didn't venture out much nor did we avail any of the recreational facilities We were travelling from Bangalore and one must remember to make a halt for food at either Vellore or Arcot if you are driving down.
