This was our second visit to Sandalwood, Goa. We were at Sandalwood during the Diwali week. The rooms are pretty good, comfortable, and quite well maintained. They have a complimentary breakfast, with a nice spread. They keep altering the menu as well. The staff are very courteous, and comply with your requests. Their travel desk is also very helpful, and easily answer your questions, as well as take care of your travel needs.
We checked in on the Diwali Day (Laxmi Pujan day). The hotel had organized fire works on the occasion, which was quite exciting.
There is small beach attached to this hotel, Vainguinim beach. This is a pretty good beach. It's not crowded whatsoever! So, you can really enjoy yourselves. We enjoyed ourselves in the water, and collected a large number of shells!
The location of the hotel is fantastic! It's almost a stone's throw away from Dona Paula. Panaji is just about a 15 minutes drive away.
It's definitely a great place to stay when you visit Goa!
