Though a good hotel need to be more professional
on Nov 30, 2017
Overall the hotel was good, it is a bit away from the main happening place of Puri (read Swargadwar) and beyond the lighthouse, no issue on this if you like to stay out secluded. It will be wrong to call this a hotel, rather its a Guest house, but they try their best to make boarders feel comfortable. The manager (Mr. Tapan Chakraborty) and the service boys (especially Raju) were well mannered, helpful and polite, room service was prompt and even better than many three stared hotels I stayed before. Location is good and you can enjoy the sea right from your room itself. Now to tell the cons, I must say the hotel is clumsy, rooms at the top floor (301 and 302) are difficult to access, especially for elders, it is better to choose the sea facing rooms at 1st floor. The food served are all cooked hygienically and one can access kitchen if required, to prepare any specialty, personally I didn't find the food tasty (subjective, though) . Pricing of the foods are bit on the higher side considering the stature of the hotel, especially tea and water is very costly (Rs. 20/ serving and Rs. 35/ Lt respectively). Overall good experience but should consider the above cons before deciding the stay.
Relaxing stay right on beach

Marina Beach House is more like a home-cum-guest house experience rather than a hotel. Its location is just perfect for travelers looking for peace and serenity- a little away from the hustle bustle of crowded traffic congested core beach area in Puri. Its located right on beach (ignoring a narrow road in between which is mostly covered in sand and looks like an extension of the beach). One can enjoy complete view of the sea sitting inside the room, if a sea facing room is chosen. Food is very tasty and service is good too. Staffs prepare the menu which guests wish to eat. Managers (Mr. Dutta and Mr. Tapan) and staff (Mr. Raju) are very cooperative and delivered the best they could. Not to forget Mrs. Jhuma and helping hand of Mr. Raju for the very tasty food and tea they prepared. I wish to visit the place again both with family and solo.

Family trip to puri

Wonderful location of house on the beach away from the hustle and bustle of swargadar. The beach is clean. Views from 1st floor and terrace r awesome. Staffs r very helpful and food is delicious. One can buy fish from local market and they will prepare it to ur taste at a minimal cost. Good for kids as u can urself also access the kitchen. Auto stand is also in front of the house. I would love to go there again n again.
Good budget hotel

Location of this hotel is fantastic, though the hotel itself is pretty exciting. They have 2 rooms in 1st floor, & more rooms on its terrace. Good for visiting in winter season, as summers may get a little uncomfortable, as the upper floors have thin ceilings, most probably from asbestos.
