Hamilton , one of the owners, has a cheeky sense of humour and he and his wife,Doris, both have a very welcoming and helpful manner. My non air com room on second floor was spotlessly clean, hot shower, soap, good fan and nice balcony. The hotel also does breakfast....and a book-swap. A small amount of traffic noise only in the morning - and a Saturday night disco across the road -otherwise a peaceful place with restful gardens and all this only 15 minute walk from the lovely Benaulim beach....or only 3 minutes away if you take a Tuk-Tuk. Hotel well placed for village facilities choice of small restaurants and bus to bigger town of Margao. Hotel very good value indeed.
Air Con rooms available and cost much more but are at the back of the hotel.

Dear Royle Creasey,
Report response as inappropriate
We sincerely thank you for writing this nice review and are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us. It has always been our motto to present our guests, first and foremost, clean rooms, as we believe is a basic prerequisite. Therefore, we are very pleased that you had the same.
As an added amenity, we are planning to provide LCD television with satellite connection for our non-airconditioned rooms. Since we have a lot of visitors from the United Kingdom, many of them who follow the Barclays Premier League will be able to see their weekend matches, needless to mention variety of other English channels that will also be available. So, should you be here on your next visit you will probably come across a piece of technology in the room by then.
We do have airconditioned rooms in the front of the hotel as well and on both floors. These rooms have larger balconies around the corner. Anyone who prefers an airconditioned room with a front view can reserve for one upon request.
Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcome you again.
Our warmest regards,
Edwin and the family at Failaka
