Very enjoyable stay!

We reached this property by chance when our previous booking was terrible and that resort transferred us here. We had a great 3 day stay here.
Property is old but huge, has two pools and a huge lawn. Being old, basic modernity is missing, like key cards, automatic switches and so on. What they lack in modernity, they made up in housekeeping. We found immaculate cleaning and upkeep. The rooms were large with attached balcony.
The food is above average. The breakfast spread is quite great. The staff is extremely warm and hospitable.
The location is slightly off, though right on the beach, it's away from the main beach so no crowd (or dirt). So if you want a clean beach experience go for this. Shared auto took 50 bucks from main beach and was easily available.
Not worth the price

The only good thing is it’s location, at the end of the marine drive road. Next to the beach and the the beach is clean and not crowded.
Other than that, towels are not fresh, bathroom fixtures don’t work, corridors are not clean , some parts of the hotel desperately need a coat of paint.
Food was good , haven’t stayed at the other properties so not sure if this is par for the course in this part of the world , but definitely not worth the money they charge.

Very bad experience. I had booked this resort with goibibo. I had booked 3rooms. Staff is not cooperative. Hotel booking with breakfast. But we had not received breakfast at check-in date. Checkout time is 8.AM. They said that we can do breakfast after checkout .
Good resort, near beach

I stayed at this resort with my family in November 2019 for 3 days. This is a good place near the beach and a pool.
We were attending a wedding here, and the experience was good. There are multiple categories of rooms and suites available. The rooms are good and well maintained.
OUTSTANDING HOTEL IN ALL RESPECTS.

HOTEL EMPIRES- PURI
Had the pleasure to stay in Hotel Empires, Puri as part of a get together from 09 to 12 Nov 19.
The stay at Hotel Empires was outstanding from the time we entered the hotel till we departed.
The staff at the Hotel is very courteous and cheerful.
They welcomed us with Almonds and cashew nuts at the reception. Hot tea was served along with Samosas whenever we returned in the evenings.
The food was outstanding and the general spread of dishes was also very fabulous.
The rooms were spic and span.
The staff at the front desk was always willing to help the guests.
