What's Good: Location and food
What needs to improve : No hot water post 4 o clock , lizzards on wall made us sleep in fear, only big towels provided for bathing no small towels provided for hand/Face wash.
Reason For Rating : Hotel has good aminities but the front desk service is bad, food is good and room service was on time. Rooms are not well cleaned and maintained, NO HOT WATER IN TAPS AFTER 4PM AND EVEN AFTER SEVERAL CALLS AND FOLLOW UPS WE DID NOT GET HOT WATER TILL NIGHT, shower was broken which was fixed later, one lamp was not working which was fixed later, A/C remort was not working which was fixed later. Lizzards on the wall kept us awake almost full night making us live in fear. Over all a good property good food but not taken good care of room's maintainance.

What's Good: Food, location, garden
What needs to improve : AC was not functioning properly and water logging was there in bathroom
Reason For Rating : We had good experience during our stay. We enjoyed the facility and food. We had some inconvenience w.r.to bathroom and AC. I suggest before allocating the room, management should check all the functionality of room.

Reason For Rating : It was a pleasurable stay
by Ravi on Sep 30,2018
What's Good: Nice location
What needs to improve : Support staff
Reason For Rating : This was my third visit to the property but I was totally disappointed on the last day as I did lose money which I had kept in the room while we went to the beach & pool, my advice to anyone who is planning to stay here is that please take care of your valuables. I wouldn't recommend this property to any of my friends, colleagues or family. Extremely disappointed, the staff couldn't catch the culprit, instead of being supportive they were supporting there own staff.
by SHOBHA on Aug 14,2018

by Aruna on Apr 01,2018
What needs to improve : A/C n fans in the restaurant were not working...Food n service
Reason For Rating : We booked a water facing room and were given a garden facing room with no privacy. When confronted Mr. Shankar the property manager gave us bullshit. Later we got to know that 8 rooms of the property were not functional due to repairs. They behaved as if they were giving us complimentary food n beverageS to make up, but if u look at it the complimentary services/lunch which they provided accounted for the price diff between garden facing n water facing room! This is the second time we r visiting property n noticed a considerable dip in service as well as quality of food. I dont think I will be visiting this place again!

What's Good: open shower
What needs to improve : games and amenities
Reason For Rating : I had a late check in,missed the dinner but the reception was nice to make my lunch complimentary.Very polite staffs at the restaurant. First let me start with the Pros: The reason i give three stars is cause of the big spacious suite. The best part is open shower.Hardly i see open shower in resorts. Thats the best part of the hotel. The bathroom is huge and well done. N the suite is big with at least 3 sofa in the living room.The price for the room makes it worth it. If your the person who likes to stay indoors than this is the place. Now the Cons: Like others i too feel the resort is overpriced. Indoor games were not at all maintained.Very dirty n dusty pool table. Not much indoor games,boring For the price breakfast and lunch were included but i feel lunch should have been included too. Little variety for both breakfast and dinner,taste wise its ok can be improved. Its a small resort so nothing much to hang out bored. Swimming pool tiles were dirty and the kids pool was dirty too,quite poor maintenance. The resort is a bit on the outer side,its tough if u dont drive.
by Amit on Feb 13,2018
What's Good: 1. Ambience 2. Swimming Pool 3. Doctor on call
What needs to improve : 1. Room 2. Room service 3. Air Conditioning 4. Food
Reason For Rating : They gave us the worst room as we had not booked it directly from them. Since I was a Travel guru customer they had us the room (room no. 10) that had no refrigerator, no AC and no mobile network. Later, on the next day after we could not sleep for the entire night they changed our room to Room no. 10 which was much better and had a fridge and AC. This is something that I'd like Travel Guru to look into.

What needs to improve : Food and Services
Reason For Rating : Housekeeping and front desk needs to be more responsive. Food quality can be improved
by pradipta on Jan 09,2018
What's Good: the location, ambience and rooms
What needs to improve : food
Reason For Rating : The location of the resort is good. It is a little away from the city and hence the beachis not at all crowded. the ambience of the hotel is excellent, very friendly for the children. the staff is also very good. the rooms are neat and well maintained. Overall a very good experience.... However, the food is not up to the mark. South Indian dishes are tasty but the north Indian or other kind of dishes such as pancakes, non-veg items are not at all edible. Fresh fruits and juices were available which is a good thing.
by Vishal on Aug 28,2017
What's Good: Spacious rooms, good food, beach nearby

by Honey Chordia on Jun 28,2015
What's Good: Rooms and facilities (pool, staff management) are very good and hotel staff are very courteous. Clrarly value for money. Only issue with the hotel is quality of food which I would rate a 1 on 5. And this brings down the overall experience of staying at the hotel. Good and quality food is very essential especially as the hotel is at a secluded corner in the outskirts of Pondicherry and visitors have no option but to eat what is prepared.
by Malini on Mar 19,2015
What's Good: It is a very nice hotel and certainly well worth the price . The swimming pool is large and well maintained. The beach is not far ( about a Km away from back gate ).The food at the restaurant is very good both taste wise as well as in choices provided . The breakfast buffet is always excellent with a huge spread .The staff is also very friendly and efficient . The only point against the resort is that it is located quite a distance from Pondicherry city . One needs to have a car while staying here in case of visits to Auroville , Ashram , Nehru Street etc .The way to the resort from the main road is difficult to find especially when dark and there should be more well lit signs at the turnings to find the way while driving . On the whole a very pleasant and relaxing stay is assured .

What's Good: Overall the hotel is good. Room Service can be improved as there were delay. Approach road/path to beach is extremely poor condition with liquor bottles and human waste. Otherwise Resort is well maintained and totally enjoyable.

I turned up at Windflower with low expectations after visiting (but not staying at) the dilapidated Dune 'eco-resort' on the other side of Pondicherry. In all regards, Windflower is a vastly superior choice - clean, modern, well-designed rooms in nicely landscaped grounds. The place was pretty quiet when I was there which made sleeping easy, however, the pillow felt a bit synthetic. It is a short walk to paradise beach which is pretty clean by Indian standards and a nice enough spot for a stroll or a play in the waves. A guy will punt you about on the backwater too if you wish. The Windflower pool is just OK. The restaurant (we had breakfast and dinner included) is pretty good, serving at dinner variety of tasty (and spicy) Indian food which I enjoyed and some 'Chinese' dishes which I avoided. The breakfast is fine but unremarkable; I personally enjoyed the dosa and South Indian filter coffee. The staff here are very accommodating and personable. You can get here easily enough by auto-rickshaw from Pondi.

We re-visited Pondy after 11 years.. the roads are better now. Beautiful place, good for short holiday. Our expectations related to Windflower are very high., as we have stayed in almost all properties of Windflower. Some how felt this property is not value for money!!
by Venice_David on December 8, 2018
Lovely place, great staff. Rooms are quite spacious. Only prob is with mosquitoes but then with so much greenery and an outdoor shower it's tough to not expect them. Property is maintained well. It's a bit interior but walkable from Paradise Beach. No food joints around the resort, so you got to either dine at the resort or go to the city.
by RohitKamal on November 26, 2018
This review is considering the fact that this is a 4* property. I was there for my first anniversary celebration looking for a delightful stay BUT it wasn't that great. I would have rated this 2 if not for the politeness of staff. Pros: 1. Courteous and polite staff 2. Clean and maintained property. 3. Walking distance from the beach (its not a beach resort) 4. Well maintained swimming pool 5. Nice arrangement for dinner night for the two of us. Cons: 1. The room floor was DIRTY even after it was cleaned up. 2. Missing towels/bathrobs and toiletries. Had to call up for every single thing like had towels and eventually had to get it myself from the laundry room. 3. Broken cup in the room that didn't just have a crack but was leaking as well. I informed the reception about the same while stepping out during the day. To my utter surprise that same cup was just water washed and kept back. How I know that, because I had a cup of coffee in the same cup last night. I informed about the same to the front desk where the staff was very apologetic 4. Bed sheets and towels weren't changed even after the room had been MADE up and this was my tipping point. I asked for the manager's visit just to show the condition of the dirty bed sheet. He was all apologetic about the same and asked for 30mins of time to set it all up. They did clean it up properly after that and as a gesture decorated it with rose petals. 5. Before check-in I had told about it being my anniversary so they arranged for midnight surprise cake for my wife. So, wondering why is this listed under cons? It's because it arrived at 00:15. I didn't get cake as we were only 2 people and it was being arranged by the resort. I couldn't call the reception to check as it was supposed to be a surprise for my wife but I ended up calling them and I was told that there were 3 more anniversaries in the resort so the cake is getting late :) 6. There is a spa as well in the resort so I booked for couple's spa session I day prior for 6:00PM and its imp to note that when I booked there was no other booking. Around 5:00PM I was informed that our session is delayed by 30mins so we should come by 6:30. We agreed and went at 6:30. To our surprise(read as shock), that we were asked to go for solo session as the couple room wasn't free, while another room would take another 5 mins to be free. Nevertheless, I asked my wife to go ahead and I decided to wait for 5mins for my turn, which turned out to be around 20mins when I decided that I no longer needed the massage. I was than asked to take a free massage the next morning which I obviously politely declined. Food was average. Nothing great but not much to complain about. SO! It is a poor resort for the price you pay for a 4 star.
by earthabi on November 19, 2018
I did read a lot of reviews before booking the place and sad to say most of them came true. The good thing about this resort is the staff who are forever smiling and ready to help at all times. They have to be commended upon that since I have never met such friendly staff in my stays anywhere Our check in was swift and hassle free. Positives is the spacious well maintained clean bathrooms and being a suite had this outdoor shower that was pleasant as well. Theres is a lovely sit out where we can relax that leads out into a small lawn. The bed is average and wasnt too comfortable neither are the pillows and the bed linen has odd stains even pillow. The small cushiony chair is the room was also dusty and not cleaned. The ac took forever to cool in the afternoon and we felt the effect only as it neared evening. Found no mini bar or fridge in room. One was delivered promptly but failed to work but that was replaced as well thankfully it worked. Also I dint find a safe .No bathrobes ,slippers or brushes that were promised as part of the room were missing . it felt like we had to keep calling to ask for things that should have just been there. This is not what one would expect out of a resort that calls itself 4 star and that too a suite room. Property is nice enough and has well maintained gardens and a place to see the backwaters. A small walk takes us to a beautiful public beach . Dint care much for location of swimming pool as it is overlooked by the restaurant. The resort is nice enough and has plenty of scope to be am amazing place.
