“Good but can be better...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Just back from Goa and had a lovely stay at Spazio. To get to the point let me immediately get to the Pros and Cons. Starting with the Pros:
1) Spotlessly Clean - The resort and its staff are always there picking every leaf, every spec of trash or cleaning or mopping the floors. The rooms are done cleanly by the time you are back. The pool although small is cleaned I think twice or thrice in a day. My kids were using it and I had no trouble with any rash or other issues
2) Swift Staff - The housekeeping staff is quick to react. I had some small issues with ants in one of my rooms and they were quick with repellents and room fresheners. The restaurant staff is again quick to get you tea etc. if you want room service. Let me add that I went in the offseason and with maybe lesser occupancy they had more time on their hands. I would assume in season they do ramp their staff. Again the plus point from reception to housekeeping, they were all smiling and I did not have any issues with them being averse to performing their duties. Being a small boutique resort, most of the staff is multi-skilled and knows almost everything about everything and this can be an advantage. Full marks to also Tavern runners Edwyn, Namrata, (Forgot the name of Edwyn's wife)
3) The Resort - in itself is a nicely done piece of architecture. Cleanly laid, my kids had a whale of time in the small pool. We had 2 interconnected rooms with a small patio type area facing the pool. It was fun sitting in the area and facing the cool monsoon breeze during mornings.
4) Taxi - The resort has a good setup with a taxi company and their cabs are clean, drivers on time and well behaved. Our driver Sachin especially was wonderful. If you are a family, and have a budget to spend about 1500-2000/day (during off season) in a AC cab (and believe me its still economical), the hotel can guide you well.

Cons
Again, as I mentioned earlier this is a small boutique value for money resort and if you are expecting some privileges doled out in bigger places, you would be disappointed. However let me lay out what I say as the pros per my experience:
1) The Kitchen - Ok, this has been raised many a times in multiple reviews in TripAdvisor, but yes its an issue. The 6 days I was there, apparently their cook was unwell (all 6 days) and a makeshift person (the wife of Edwyn who was running the Tavern) was cooking the morning breakfast which of course was limited to anything to do with eggs (Again not her fault and they did their best). The breakfast menu was typically toasted breads, corn flakes, and poha or bhaji. They have a smallish room service menu consisting of continental items but not many were available owing to non-availability of cook. If you are a family with kids, who maybe prefer home food or say the north India type of food like paranthas etc., you would have to make alternate arrangements. I must say that while I knew about the small kitchen, I was disappointed with the breakfast.
2) Road outside - A fallout of the non-availability of room service items and proper restaurant, on days we were in the resort, we had to walk down to a nearby place called Eatopia which is a multi-cuisine place. Not sure if Ryan can do something about this, but that stretch of 5 minutes is completely dark. During off season, there are no better restaurants in the vicinity.
3) Anjuna Beach - OK the nearby Anjuna beach is like a 10-15 min walk (depending on how fast you walk), is basically a rocky beach. Of course its beautiful in its own sense, but don't expect a sandy beach. For that you need to go to South of Anjuna (which has the awesome shack Curlie's). That is not walk-able and can be reached in a cab or in a 2 wheeler.

Some quick pointers:
1) The Resort can also be reached via Anjuna police station on one side
2) Vagator beach is about a 10 min ride. Curlie's or South of Anjuna is also a 10 min ride
3) During season, there are a no. of eateries (to be reached by cab or 2 wheeler) which can also be visited - Burger Factory, Dominos, Cafe Lambretta etc.
4) ATMs are many, the nearest being HDFC near Anjuna
5) Oxford Arcade is a supermarket about 3 mins walking distance from Spazio, open from 830 AM to 830 PM.

However, to sum it up, clean resort, cute goan architecture, within the limited food options we had, all were of good taste, great team...I am sure Ryan is already working on the feedback and is aware of some of the areas to work on..

Room Tip: All rooms are pool facing. The ones on the ground floor are interconnected so helpful if you are fam...

It was the 1st time that i visited Goa and to Spazio Resort...My family and I was warmly welcomed by the front office staff. The Gateway and the colour combination on the walls is great taste...The staff very very warm and informative. The rooms are par excellence. The food and service very very good...(Add a few more dishes to the Menu/Goa Specialties)... Clean environment/No Noises/Crazy Bar....Edwin,his German Wife who runs the Bar/Restaurant and the girl/s they are so friendly.. Senior Mr.Rodrigues who call himself as the Senior Supervisor (Jokingly) shares his moments of hard work put into build SPAZIO....and finally I meet the MANN...Mr Ryan Rodrigues who manages the site...Great Guy with lots of energy within him to take SPAZIO to even more greater heights...Good luck my dear friend.....

Simply......For a retreat far beyond.....SPAZIO LEISURE is the place I would recommend..

Just One advice....The direction to the site....Please SAY NEAR TO ANJUNA POLICE STATION.....

Saw this hotel rating in TripAdvisor and booked the hotel. Traveled with my 2 kids (3 and 6) and my husband. Loved everything about this hotel, the location , the pool and the room. The only disappointment was the breakfast as everyone else pointed out. Not sure why they don't work on that. We had requested for room in the ground floor and was allotted one very close to the pool. The kids really enjoyed staying there. It is very close to Anjuna beach (walkable) and even the saturday night flee market. Would definitely love to come again.

The hotel is very spacious, has a clean & good pool, mini-bar in the room.
The hotel is very close to Anjuna beach. Bikes and airport drop taxis are available.
One of the best and affordable places to stay in Goa.
