We had a very bad experience at zest. We booked for two days and decided to check out one day before itself because of poor service. Alacarte food was worth for nothing. Everything is expensive there for non members. We had to wait for one and half hours for getting the comforter after making 5 calls we got a very... More

This is a good property spread over large area. The location is right on the beach. The rooms are spacious and have amenities like mini refrigerator, TV with cable connection, etc. But rooms are badly designed. There is no wardrobe or desk, not even luggage rack. Similarly bathrooms are badly designed. There is not even a towel rod or place... More

We stayed here for 3N+4D on 14th Feb 2015 and we had driven down from BLR. Location: Slightly away from Pondicherry which is far by local standards. We didnt have any issues with that. It would help if the resort people can provide directions from the main road as you can get easily lost trying to find this place. Beach:... More

Good part is they have private beach with timings. There are lot of activities for kids most of them are pay and use. Restaurant food is a bit expensive. If you have private vehicle you can go around the city which is 4kms away from the hotel. Rooms are good. Pool was under maintenance so we did not had a... More

I really liked this property, its refreshingly modern with beautiful gardens which open out to a spectacular beach. The beach itself is better than most beaches in Goa, beautiful sand and pretty clean. The food was good though we avoided the buffets because of our dietary restrictions. The quality of the ala carte was excellent. Overall service was great. Though... More
