The hotel is located just a couple of minutes walk from the main road with shops, restaurants etc. and the beach is a 10 to 15 minute walk away. Our room was very spacious and kept immaculately clean as was the rest of the hotel. All rooms overlook the pool area or well maintained garden (unlike other hotels in the... More

We liked the place but I guess something which was missing here was the service. Staff needs to be polite and attentive to guests needs. It feels like they are not bothered. Rooms are good, hotel is beautiful, breakfast has a good spread but could be better. I guess if service is improved this hotel can be the perfect one.

This was our first trip to Goa. The hotel is just off the main street in Candolim, but within easy reach of the beach and shops. The rooms are spacious, the beds extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are roomy and nicely appointed. I liked the dual nationality plug points, which meant you didn't need adapters for everything. All rooms have... More

Good hotel with nice facilities and very helpful staff. However hotel ambience is not good, though it is just walkable from Candolim beach. Food is average.Since I booked it at the last moment, I got it at a relatively higher price. Overall a good experience.

This was my second visit to the hotel. The staff are always eager to help especially front desk staff. They always respond to any communication before the stay in a timely fashion. The check in was fast and they gave me a room which matched my request 100%. This hotel is great if you are happy not to be directly... More

Stayed in this property from 1st Nov to 6th Nov. I had made my reservations 7 months in advance and hence got a very lucrative deal. The best part being upgraded to a Deluxe room upon request by Vrushali. The lobby takes you back to the old Goan style of architecture while the rooms are still quite modern. The amenities... More

I went to this hotel for a 4 night stay to summarize my review in the start because I know many of us dont end u reading the entire review. The hotel was over priced (@ Rs 6000 a night) for the kind of experience it provides. I feel other boutique hotel with half the price have the same or... More

CI&S, is a very quite, sublime and welcoming hotel in Goa on Candolim beach area. The reception and lobby area is very subtle that reflects authentic Goan history.
