We stayed 3 days at this hotel. Rooms are basic but had a/c wa we booked for same. Non a/c rooms were also there. They have a small pool which was quite ok for a dip. Free wifi was limited to small reception near the entrance. No wifi in the rooms. The best which I like about the place is... More

This was our second visit to the same resort. And I would prefer to stay there again. This explains a lot about the customer service, Pricing, cleanliness and food. Near by beach, so that you can spend your time at the right place. Swimming pool is also properly maintained. Situated in Holiday Street is having their own advantage.

First things first, this is a budget property and people seeking comforts of 4-5 Star property should really look at the price they're paying here and then complain about the missing things :) Pros: The location is extremely good, hardly 200 meters away from an adjoining stretch of the Calangute Beach (this is not the main beach hence there's not...

Room appeared clean. Rates were low. Location was decent. One issue was that the bedsheets left a skin rash. Also it's better to take your own towels. There are many mosquitoes in the evenings. Parking is not adequate.

I feel we should not have taken the standard rooms as I figured that the hotel was having better rooms. To sum up here is the list of pros and cons Pros: Closer to the beach In-house restaurant (preferable as the nearby restaurants all cost the same) Clean Pool (Saw everyday cleaning) Cons: The swimming pool rules are not being...
