A las 7:30am abrí los ojos, menos mal no sentí la noche, no dormí mucho pero no importa, hora de salir de nuestro "hotelito". Tal cual lo prometido, shorts, camiseta, sandalias y nada de baño.

It is one of the best hotels in Madurai with good facilities. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had a good night sleep after a long drive from Bangalore. We were 3 families with 4 kids and had a good time. Unfortunately could not spend much time as we were halted enroute to Kovalam. There is a good pool and also some lawns around for the children to play.
The morning breakfast spread was good with both indian and continental. The overall rates were high - however with the assurance of welcome group , it is worth it.
