When i arrived it was like taking a timeout and Cuba weren't wrong when they said "this is where time slows down" - it was by far the most relaxed check in process of anywhere i've ever stayed. Blissful.
However, be warned that there is only one a/c bungalow that faces the sea, the rest are along the garden inland). When booking bungalows - as lovely as it is to stay close to the ocean you have to bear in mind that all of the adjoining properties (as well as Cuba) have restauarants and bars at the front on the beach and all play music until quite late at night. There are also quite a lot of dogs at night that make noise and fireworks which can scare half the life out of you. If you want to relax and chill out i would recommend you request a bungalow a little further back and then you will have a more restful night's sleep (and it'll be a little cheaper). Plus, you really don't spend much time in it anyway - i only retired there in the evening to read and sleep.
Mohan and Jeevan who manage the place were excellent. They couldn't do enough to make my stay comfortable & make me feel at home (especially since i was travelling by myself).
The food was delicious - can't fault it AND i totally recommend going for a walk to a) Palolem for a visit and b) the main street of Patnem which has some really fabulous little boutiques - i was very surprised.
I will definitly be back to Patnem and Cuba... it's my new happy place :)

The hotel is located close to the beach. this is not like, step-out-and-you-are-on-the-sand. Its a short walk through the village, passing fields and ends with a gentle rise of land, that masks the beach ahead. The Beach sand is white, dotted with shacks.
