We had booked 5 rooms and paid Rs.6000/- for the extra person in each room. But they had not arranged any extra mattresses for us when we asked for it after our sightseeings. We had to fight with the receptionist and had to threaten him to call police before he agreed.

For many years this was a meeting place for many European long term tourists.That time may be over. The bar & restaurant have been nicely renovated and the tandoori is working again, but the staff do not interact with the customers anymore. Maybe this will change but at the moment the focus is purely business. Maybe they will warm up... More

Had booked through oyo rooms and expected to be good. Only good thing about our stay was room was neat, clean and spacious. No working wifi as promised. Breakfast was terrible. Worst thing was hospitality. Especially the waiter of hotel was rude.

Hey friends, i really wanted to let you know that this property really sucks. Though this is very near to the beach and will show you good pics especially on OYO Rooms, but to tell you our experience this is not at all worth the price. Starting from Hospitality, crowd, no elevators and you have to lift your luggage on... More

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.
