“Great hotel: Small and friendly with the best quality of rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

We stayed at the SSH for 2 weeks.We were a group of friends and family 13 people. The hotel was excellent, Great bedrooms with a fantastic bathroom. The build quality of the hotel and the finish was to a very high standard. The outside pool area was very clean and had great sunbeds. The pool was small but in proportion to the number of rooms the hotel has. The staff were very good in reception helping us book tables for evening meals at the more popular restaurants with us being a large group. The bar / waiter staff were learning fast. All were very friendly and tried their best to make our stay as good as they could.
The only bad point was do not stay on site for an evening meal. They could not cope with 13 people and maybe it was just teething problems with only being open several months. Hopefully they can improve this as the onsite restaurant overlooks the pool and is a great asset to the hotel.
The location was further from the beach than I thought but this was a small price to pay for the quality of the hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel in a quiet area. The pool and sunbeds are gorgeous. Its a much higher standard than one usually gets in Goa.
It only has 23 rooms but they are beautiful and so well appointed.
The place is spotless which one cannot often say about Goa !!

Last time we were in Goa our hotel was very basic, this time we were delighted with the quality of the room and the hotel in general. Have a look at the room pictured on the Thomson website - this is exactly what our room was like. We had a large american sized bed, built in fridge and furniture, a safe, ceiling fan and air conditioning. The balcony had lovely wicker furniture and the bathroom was really spacious with a big modern sink and a 'room for 2' walk in shower. The pool is big enough to have a proper swim in and was very clean, the sunbeds and double seats around the pool are wicker and the mattresses on them were scrubbed clean at the end of every day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only thing we can't comment on is the food in the hotel as we never ate there. The hotel only opened in Dec 2010 so the restaurant is still unknown and very quiet, we chose to eat out in the restaurants that were busy and that we knew the quality of food we would get. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the hub of Candolim market and only 15 mins walk to the beach. We loved Candolim the last time we were there and are even more in love with it after finding this gem of a hotel. We will definately be back next year.
