The place consists of a couple of apartment-like buildings, a medium sized pool, and a small garden with a play area (two swings and a slide). Very minimalistic in approach, meant only for sleeping out the night. If you are looking for a cheap place where you just sleep for the night and plan to spend the whole day outdoors,... More

We stayed for 5 nights and we liked the rooms which are big and airy with a fairly good balcony. The pool is small and the depth is not suitable for adults. Free wifi was limited to small reception near the entrance. There is a nice eating shack and they serve food with average taste with a limited menu. over... 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...
