Very comfortable place to stay. The rooms are maintained very neatly. The pool was small but good and well maintained. Beach is 2 minutes away and less crowed since its in the corner of Calangute beach.

I have been here in the first week of August. It was a comfortable stay. The resort has a beautiful pool side. The restaurant is remarkably good. Rooms were okay. Average place,but good for the price we paid.

Was my first travel to India and after a short holiday in Delhi decided on going to Goa. Booked this hotel online and it was just as described in the website. Felt safe as we were just 2 girls travelling. Very helpful staff, lovely location and comfortable rooms at the price we were looking for. Beach is very close too.

Have stayed in this hotel many times. It's a family owned and run hotel that have got it just right. The rooms are clean and spacious. Excellent location, within walking distance of the beautiful sandy beach. Many restaurants, shops and bars are also close by. The staff are so helpful and friendly. I Would recommend staying here again & again... More
