Our group of six stayed at The Casa Candolim Hotel, Goa for four nights, and found it to have the best service of any hotel we've ever experienced. The staff is incredibly freindly and helpful. Our wlecome included chilled beer and some potato snack served at our balcony while we learned about travel and tour options options in Goa, and the service extended to making reservations, giving directions, offering advice about cabs, and giving us tips about bargaining with shopkeepers. Special kudos to Shilpa and Annet! The hotel itself is not big or fancy in fact it is divided into two blocks which have to be reached walking through a dirt track, luckily the lighting is not bad after dark.The hotel is only a short walk to main street which has some very nice eating joints and bars. There's a cab stand across the street so you can get transportation easily to anywhere in the city .We were asked to bargain on the prices quoted by the cab drivers. There's alot more to Goa than just beaches and parties and we would like to THANK the staff at Casa Candolim for showing us that ....We will be happy to recommend this place to family, friends and fellow travelers.
