This is a good lace to be with friends and family. The Mediterranean styled cottages are good to stay. The rooms are well kept with a well maintained campus. Goa in rainy season is little tricky and keeping the resort nice and trim is difficult - but they did a good job at it as far as I could see.... More

It's a few years since we went to this hotel but we did enjoy it very much. The rooms were a bit tired then but could have been refurbished since. The gardens were lovely as was the stroll down the path to the beautiful beach. Food was good but the only problem was the drinks, the fridges were not put... More

Hi! Visited the resort from 31st May to 2nd June. The resort is about 35 KM from the airport in South Goa. I had made an online booking for taxi and was charged Rs.1000/ from the airport which is reasonable by Goa standards. The front office carried out checking in formalities quite swiftly and alloted us the room within 10... More
