Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.

As we finished we were kicked out to make room for the next round of customers in this busy joint. The sunburn had deepened in colour and the heat was radiating off me. Michel and Lauren headed back to the rocks we missed, but I knew it would probably kill me so left them and hid in our room.

Luckily we stood our ground, wouldn’t get out, and demanded to be taken there, which they eventually did), we are nervous about extra passengers.

... that was one of the most intimidating airport immigration encounters I’ve ever had. Still I came away clean and could now exit what in the beginning seemed a lovely modern oasis of airline joy but was now a symbol of passport oppression.
Got to my hotel and of course I was too early for check in. So a couch in the guest communal area was to be my sleeping quarters for the night. After all the going on’s in India, I really wasn’t ...

And then it happens. A coach pulls out to overtake another, which is already careering speedily along the fairly minor coastal road and launches itself, head on, into the path of our little Nano. I think I shut my eyes and leaned away from the awaited impact,expecting the tearing sound of a chainsaw ripping through a sardine can. Somehow our driver slowed and jinked ...

We were fed breakfast, lunch and dinner for 600 rupees in total, just under £10. The meals were pretty good and supplemented the emergency crisps and biscuits that we had taken with us just in case! I was also pleasantly surprised with the toilets. Although Indian squat style with no toilet paper they were lot cleaner than either of us had imagined, and we're cleaned (along with the windows) half way through the journey. About half way we pulled ...
