Stayed here this week on a B&B basis as wanted to try local food.
It is a very small well run hotel with pretty much everything you need if you want to use it as a comfortable well located base as we did.
Room and bathroom on the larger than average side, beds comfortable, room is well equipped and very very clean.
Indoor pool is on the roof of an annex and the outdoor pool is by the spa, both a small be adequate. Spa prices are very good, around 50 euro for an hours treatment.
Nice touches like occasional furniture and chairs dotted around. Bar and lounge area is very comfortable and well set out. We often had something to eat out on the terrace and the food we good. The Goan food in the restaurant is very good, very tasty.
About a 15 minute walk into town, it is well away from the majority of other hotels over in the forum area. I personally think it's a perfect location.
Breakfast is good, especially the selection of continental breakfast items, from smoked salmon to excellent Portuguese cheeses. If you like your full English every day, you may feel a little disappointed as it's simply OK, whereas the cold items are very good (hence overall good).
I'd definitely come again and I'd recommend it to all my friends as the place to stay... if you're not thinking of booking Reid's :-)
