The Golden Retreat hotel is great with good interiors and spacious rooms. The food served is tasty and the fish served was amazing.
The surrounding peaceful and a complete resort that welcomed its guests with open arms. The room service is a bit slow and came only after calling 2-3 times. This area needs to improve as you cannot expect the guests to wait for servers and cleaners.
Vegetarian food is not my choice and so I do not know, but the non vegetarian food, is great, no comments. In fact, the food compensates all other ifs and buts.
I saw many business groups staying for over a week. Yes, the ambience is decent and they have indoor games as well. The pool is built nicely and it closes in the evening. Similarly, the lighting is not good in the pool area in the evening.
The view from the room is relaxing, nice restaurant, decent food and tasty, for sure, but a bit over-prized. It is awesome and you can go, a nice place in Haldia. But go prepared to this hotel by hiring a cab including return journey. This is a must as you will not get a cab to return in Haldia.
Sea food lovers will like it as they serve good fish varieties. This hotel is like a palace, but maintained not like a palace. The room rent includes breakfast. There is a nice bar and for business travelers, conferencing features are available.
