“Castle????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Where do I start? The locals don’t know where this place is. The signage outside the hotel reads some name other than Sand Castle. The picture (only one) available on the Internet has quite cleverly been edited so as to crop out the poor surroundings. Forget the surroundings; even the “unintended” lawns haven’t been looked after since ages. Those 10 odd steps from the entrance gate to the stairs take you through a mini forest. Mattresses – “Rock Solid”; literally!! Pillows were bad. The housekeeping staff – rude at its best!! We had booked three rooms, but only one had a telephone available to call the room service. The rooms were poorly lit. And that too at the price of a decent hotel. There’s the ticket. All such nonsense at the price we paid, feels like we have been cheated even for pissing in their loos!!!

The hotel falls short of things displayed.
1) it is 15 min walk from Miramar beach in fast-pace walk
2) few staff r not very friendly or "very rude" to be exact
3) room was not clean
4) hotel compound was quite dirty

It was 4 nights and 5 days stay at Sands Castle, Goa. It is near to Miramar beach. The price is affordable. Nice rooms and well connected to Miramar and Dona Paula beaches. You can get sight seeing facility at the hotel. At night you will have less option to get dinner (only 2 restaurants available near to this).
