I have been a regular visitor to this hotel since 2005 since i visit the temple at Mardol each year. Strangely we get the same room every time without asking for it. Our stay is mostly for a couple of days. The bathroom attachments need improvement. The cupboard door never locks and so does the main door. Additional strength is... More

I have been a regular visitor to this resort since 2000. The location is splendid and perfect to visit the temples around Ponda. The overall infrastructure and facilities have again gone back to the bad old days barring a remodeling done around 2006. The cottage room alloted to us was unclean with sticky mess on the floor. one of the... More

We stood for 1 night. The rooms are simple but clean. All the residency is in a big and real well cared garden. We spent the whole morning in this garden and on the hill behind the hotel. The staff is nice and helpful. The restaurant is not very nice furnished, nor very romantic, but the food is tasty and... More

We had booked 2 nights in this residency, and we were very much deceived. Although the location is good and gardens very nice, the service and rooms are very poor; we arrived in the late evening and didn't feel very welcomed, the room was obviously not cleaned (floor and sheets dirty), very empty of basic facilities such as toilet paper...

Good quiet location, value for money, excellent food, green property on heel slope. Excellent if you are focusing trip of south goa. Far away from north goa beaches (Baga, Anjuna, kalangute etc) so not suggested unless you have your own vehicle.

As we had to attend some family function we had to stay at Ponda during our Goa trip. I was very apprehensive as we have always stayed in and around Panjim during all our previous trips. When we arrived at this resort, we were pleasantly surprised. Ponda is off the coast and with so much greenery around it looks more... More

The resort is maintained by GTDC and although the rooms are good the service could certainly be much better. We had to wait for an hour before we could check in because one of the rooms was not cleaned yet. The property is good but again room maintenance should be better. The restaurant is great and serves quality food as... More
