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.

All of the others were Russian - the majority being very noisy and rude. Having said this - the hotel is in a... More
