The room was clean and all the ammenities were provided. We didn't tried the food so couldnt provide any feedback to it. The hotel is very near to Baga and Calangute, and at... More

It is the worst hotel I have ever stayed with absolutely dirty rooms. The room allotted to us was given in an uncleaned state. The pillow covers were dirty and smelly and we had to ask 3-4 times in the reception to get whatever we required. The bathroom was horrible with stained closet. When the hotel staff were very particular... More

The hotel is overall good. Rooms are neat and clean and ambience is good. Nice place to stay. Hotel Manager is very cordial and helpful guy. Food is hopeless. I would suggest to eat at any other nearby hotels near baga beach. Hotel is highly understaffed.

A nice 3 star resort placed between Calangute and Baga. Both side is 30 min walking distance. It helps as u save a lot of money by not spending on taxi. Taxi too costs Rs 200/- either ways. Rooms r luxurious and staff very friendly. Only issue is that they are understaffed. Best part is the swimming pool (even though... More
