Not satisfied with the management. No room service. No foods available in the restaurant. Swimming pool is good. Close to colva beach. That is advantage. Rooms r below average. Bathroom is ok. Small size tv.

Everthing is old, dusty and least maintained. Bathrooms and fittings suck. Pool water is not clear. Visited with 5 friends. Room is not clean. No sufficient lights for the size of room. Prefer first floor rooms.

This is our 4th stay here and probably our last. This hotel is in a great position and it's the staff that make it what it is. It has recently been sold and the new owner is just interested in making money. The rooms are being rented out to Indians and they are piling 6 or 8 to a room.... More

Great bar staff. Good bar Snacks. Disgusting toilets. Change of ownership has run this place down fast. Too bad, it was the best bar in Colva for a long time. Next season will be interesting for regulars.

I read the reviews and at a small price thought this sounds ok as it is based in a great spot. I was correct about the great spot, it was good seeing the tourists and locals on the street from the balcony. You stepped out of your hotel and you were surrounded by restaurants, shopping etc. The worst part about... More

The hotel is located very close to the Colva beach in Goa. Very basic facilities but value for money. Breakfast is included but is only fruit juice, toast, butter, jam, tea/coffee. You have to pay extra for eggs. There is an Udipi (South Indian) restaurant just outside the hotel for vegetarian food.

The Hotel is situated close to the beach, the rooms are very basic but clean and the beds are very hard, the room we had was none a/c with just a ceiling fan which was okay but room was very hot and asked for a a/c room which was much better staff helpful, breakfast average but most other meals okay.
