“"Exxxellent resort"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

sunny wadhwa,
rooms was good, food was good, i suggest if you like crowdy beach so go for north goa resorts.
swimming pool, and other facilities was awesome,

but one "disco" must be inside the resort, airport, beach, railway station everything is few steps away from the resort.

Room Tip: every room is good surounded by pool

Superb hotel with excellent large spacious rooms. Food is quite nice. I stayed here wid my wife for honeymoon frm 12-15 Dec'12.
Nearby market is also very nice and cheap compared to other places in goa. Offcourse u need to have bargaining power. Enjoy with your spouse friends n family. Definitely a thumbs up :)

The hotel is a great place i have been here for my honeymoon. The location is great and definately a must place if relaxing, Spending quality time is your motto.

Hotel rooms are spacious, Clean and Beautiful however the management needs to improve a bit. You need to ask them for all that you need, No proactively assisting the visitors.

Food is great..!!!

This was one of the finest hotel I have see. Beautifully architect and maintained. It was very clean hotel. Interior was very good, huge pool, great food. Room design was very good.

Beach was very close less than 1/2 kilometer, bug it was very very dirty. I find more than several kilometer long toilet on beach, hence I had to travel to other location for better beach. Also, there was rotten fish thrown troughout the beach. Also, there was lots of jelly fish on beach which made more dangerous.

Main Colva market is around a kilometer from this beach.Market had lots of restaurant to try with.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good.

Great property, quite close to the beach though you have to walk about 400 m to reach the beach. Food is absolutely lousy. Service is so-so. Rooms are clean, Pool is wonderful. Buffet served everyday for lunch and dinner without fail was lousy. Spread is very thin. Youll feel like you are not in GOA when u have a meal here.

Room Tip: All rooms are poolside, there are just 1st floor and ground floor. If you want to walk into the pool...

We booked our stay at Pearls' through Makemytrip.com for 3 nights and got really good rates. Its a pretty resort with a fabulous pool, very tastefully decorated and cosy rooms and a nice ambiance. The rooms on the first floor, facing the pool have the best view.

However, the one things that was a complete turn off about our stay was that there was this horrible fish smell all over the resort. It was overpowering to the extent that it made us wanted to throw up. I would not recommend it to anyone for that one reason. Its a basic human need to get a breath of fresh air and keep our food down in our stomachs which is just not possible at this place.

Also, the room service and food at Bamboo is really bad. Whatever you do, do not order the goan prawn curry rice here, or you'll lose you love for the dish.

Hotel and Room: We took 3 rooms - 6 adults and 2 kids. Excellent hotel for the price you pay! Looks newly renovated. The room was wonderful! Looked fresh and balcony in the room opens up to well maintained swimming pool (small children's pool area and pool towels available). The room has a mini fridge, water heater for tea/coffee making, bath tub and a shower area. There were plug points to accomodate all international plugs,which is very thoughtful! Nice bed, lightings, TV and aircon in room. Had a safety locker as well.

Location: It is not just a stone's throw away from beach. The hotel is a good 5 mins walk from Colva beach. The beach was infested with Jelly fish. A lnumber of them were washed out to the shore and some live ones as well. We did not dare let our kids enter the water. There was a beach shack named Boomerang which served good food/drinks and had a beach volley ball court as well! There were sun beads at the shack.

Restaurant/Bar/food: The food at Bamboo top restaurant in the hotel was good. Breakfast buffet was great..not a huge spread but the ones which were available were good enough. We enjoyed it! The staff at restaurant were friendly. They just cleaned up after our 1 year old son without a twitch! Drinks at bar - enjoyable! Free cocktail from 8pm to 9pm was fantastic!

Transport for sight seeing: There is a taxi booking counter right outside the hotel. We travelled with a driver named Anthonio Rodriguez... he had a nice car (Toyota Innova). Powerful aircon for the hot weather in Goa and well maintained car. The guy was very friendly and reasonable in terms of the charges! You may ask for him...if you want to go around Goa.

Reception: Friendly folks except their lady boss who had an air of arrogance. But not bad at all. They gave us late check out until 2pm for two of the rooms.

Overall would recommend this hotel for anyone who would like to have a peaceful, relaxing vacation away buslting North Goa.

Room Tip: Rooms on 1st floor overlooking the pool. If you are going as a family and booking more than one room...
