It wasn't a planned trip and therefore I ended up in the non seasonal period just before the monsoon rains and was surprised that it was more than bearable and was a pleasant experience at Sanctum Springs with the coconut tree shades in front of your room and the sea breeze coming right up to you. As usual, excellent service... More

We liked Sanctum Spring Beach Resort. Friendly staff and clean rooms. We were not too impressed by the included breakfast though. The location is good since it is close to the beach and the restaurants on the cliff but it is still a quiet place. There was a big parking lot between the hotel and the ocean so our view... More

I have booked through Makemytrip.com on 17.03.2014 and went along with my family.They are providing ground floor room near reception. These rooms are having no balcony and no privacy at all. Breakfast was pathetic. They have only two staff to serve. We really lost our money. They are discriminating people those who have booked online and through direct. Please do... More

Location is very nice, close to everything and a breath away from all the fuss of the busy area. Direct view to the sea and a 3 minute walk to the beach. We made reservations for 3 rooms not knowing if there are different categories of rooms; Executive & Suite, the latter being more expensive. We stayed on what appears... More

This hotel is in a good location adjacent to the Helipad. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, most with a good command of the English language. Western standards of service provision are understood and met which is unusual in most hotels in India in this price bracket. The only criticism is the internet speed, which generally slow (although this... More

Would definitely recommend this bargain hotel. It is extremely clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Its location is excellent as it is in at the helipad/ middle cliff (close to north and south cliff). Very peaceful place and beautiful rooms/ garden area. Helipad separates the hotel from the cliff yet this adds to the peace/ quietness of the... More

This hotel has everything you need at a reasonable cost. The staff are very helpful and friendly, most of the rooms have a sea view and a balcony to sit on and watch the sun go down., hot water and wi-fi 24hours a day. Also the location is good, between north and south cliff. I have no hesitation in recommending... More

The location is very good, right on the helipad. The service was very good most of the staff were helpful. Room was clean but average. Beds were very hard. Not sure about the value for the money. After a month in India it was nice to have satellite tv. We did not eat at the restaurant because of so many... More

Upon reading the reviews here I thought we'd got the wrong hotel!! In contrast to the positive reviews I think this hotel is a backpacker budget hotel charging double what it is worth!! Cons: No wifi in room Room scruffy with battered old furniture Horrible lighting - just bare energy bulbs Hard bed with springs sticking in your back (the... More
