This hotel has around 50 rooms and staff is of 5-6 employees. Nobody cares about you. Experience was like a Lodge which cost you not more than 500. Well this hotel cost us 5000 and it was not worth it. Nobody picks up phone calls at reception due to shortage of staff Well you won't get any kind of assistance... More

Absolutely ridiculous place. Smells very bad. Not able to sleep either. No comfortable bed. Worst hotel/resort we came across in Goa. We got a 4 bedded AC room, which stinks awfully. They converted 2 rooms into 4 bedded apartment. It is more like a low class hotel opposite bus stand or railway station. By any means it cant be called... More

What would be the cost of a hotel to stay very close to the beach? Trust me, this is the cheapest priced hotel among them all. When I say cheap, it's only the cost of the hotel,the service is top class!! They have a very good in house restaurant with a wide variety of cuisine to choose. The only thing... More

The place is managed by the owners themselves and they don't fake in the hospitality. This place is very close to baga, calangute, titos and mambos. They have ample parking space, a... More

So this is the 2nd time I've been here and this place is really decent enough for me to go back again. Located at a prime location at Calangute it is just 10 mins away from the beach. You can hire bikes from the hotel itself which is pretty convenient. The staff is good and helpful. Would surely recommend this... More
