Some take away tit-bits :
Where I stayed at Port Blair : Dugong guest house. Opposite water sports complex .very basic, Cheap (rs. 1200/day). Only the location and price are its USP. Ph: 243237, 243247, Fax: 234508
How I travelled : Mr. Koteswaran is your guy. He runs Velli Travels. Amazing service. A gentleman to the core. Very punctual. Ph :09434279669, 09679560244
Where I stayed at Havelock : Gold Star Resort. Its the shittiest place one can stay at . Run away even if your driver as much as slows down near it. Pathetic management. Arrogant staff. Money swindling attitude. We had to fight over petty thing like hot bathing water, breakfast, dinner. At a price tag of rs. 2000/day this is unacceptable. Stay away from Nishi Travels and this driver called Mr. Mandal. He's a tout and would take you only to places he gets a fat money cut from, your convenience be damned.
Good places to eat, in Port Blair : New Lighthouse restaurant, opposite Dugong Guest House. Their Fish curry cooked in coconut milk is very good. Crabs are also tasty. Over all it has a palatable menu. Another great place is . Pure vegetarian. It has amazing ambience. Quick service and attentive staff. The Thali is good . Annapurna is your go to place for piping hot south Indian meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can absolutely rest assured that your stomach won't go bad with food from here dancing in your gastric juices.
What I missed, you shouldn't : Neil Island and Cinique islands. Very picturesque. We didnt have the time so couldn't fit it in. Also, if you can arrange a chopper ride/plane ride over the islands then it would be an experience of a life time.
