“Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

An excellent budget property to rest in. We were here for 3 nights. Beach is Just 5 minutes walking distance from hotel. Nice food. Nice rooms. Nice service. Superb location. Nearer from market area. And the main thing, nice co-operation from staff. Just need some more eagerness to clean the rooms day-to-day. I will definately give reference to all to give them a chance to serve u.

Room Tip: Rooms above reception are quite good.

We have stayed here for 3 nights - nice budget hotel with amenities like LCD TV in a room, Swimming pool etc. Restaurant is advantage - having multi cuisine - close to the beach area 10 to 15 min.

Not the even near the best resort in candolim. The staff were just ok nothing out of the ordinary and the service was poor to say the least. Anyone wishing to stay in candolim should try the casa seashell in candolim. The food was brillant and the service was superb and also the rooms were clean and presentable at all times.

This was our fifth trip to Goa so we know that standards are often quite basic and weren't expecting too much. Our room was fine ..... quite basically furnished and (as we've found in Goa) a little short of hanging / drawer space. The bathroom was the usual for a 2 star in Goa, by this I mean that there is no shower enclosure or curtain and the water drains through a glorified hole in the floor .....I like to think of it as a very basic 'wet-room' !!! (One thing I do take with me is a cheap loo-brush as I've never seen one in a Goan hotel) We had a nice little balcony which was perfectly adequate for relaxing with a glass or two of wine (about £2 a bottle from the wine shop nearby )
The rooms were cleaned daily , although not a thoroughly as I'd like ....... the doors/light switches were grubby and the floor was swept around the furniture with the dust left underneath !!! Towels and sheets were frequently changed and although a bit threadbare and off-white they were clean (If you take a drive out to a local laundry and see the colour of the water used for washing you'll see why they aren't white !! )
The pool itself was nice and clean but the area around it was very shabby as were all the public areas. Breakfast was served in the open and was very basic, simply juice, tea/coffee and toast.. There are other choices available at extra cost (the porridge is very good) although don't order if you're in a rush as service is very slow. It's laid back to the point of appearing that the staff couldn't care less and we found this was the norm whatever the time of day. The only exception was late at night when guests were quite drunk and were flashing the rupees.... this seemed to bring on undivided attention whilst hankering after a generous tip !!
Poor service was our main gripe but a close second was the t.v. in reception. More often than not football was blaring out over the music and we could also hear it in our room through the night, Bear in mind that due to the time difference British football was often still showing at 4 a.m.
We had three evening meals at the hotel and the first two were really nice .... the butter naan was the best we've had. The third however was really awful so I'd say the food is a bit hit and miss and wouldn't recommend you rely on it.Overall, it's a cleanish base but I wouldn't stay there again.
