“Modern, clean and definitely the best in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Modern rooms (hotel is 9 months old), air-con, superb service (manager always on site), clean, polite staff, secure (guards 24/7). Would definitely stay again without a doubt. Room service 24/7. Pool small but always very clean and fairly quiet. Definitely rates a 4* without a doubt. You will not be disappointed with this hotel. Nov 2011. Only negative is that its a taxi ride from any good night life or markets. 10 min walk to beach. This hotel is the best in the area unless you want the boutique hotels for triple the price?!

I am a regular visitor to goa, and have stayed in quite a few hotels here. i thought ocean palms goa offered great value just after new years, and i was not disappointed. The rooms are large and bright. we got a room without a balcony but the large windows made up for that, it was bright and airy. The room service could have been quicker , but its a resort, so i guess its ok.The food was pretty good, the grill restaurant was a pleasant change from the air-conditioned restaurant. We got our bike conveniently and nothing was too far off. Baga was only a 5 mins drive. The staff were very friendly and that made our holiday really very good. We will definitely go back.

We have just spent 2 weeks at the hotel during Christmas and New year, and it has been a fantastic trip for our family. Highlights include an excellent restaurant with very courteous staff and a delicious menu; great recreational activities including a good sized pool and a lovely spa. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and were cleaned thoroughly every day by the house keeping staff. The Christmas and New Years parties which were held at the hotel were outstanding; we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All the staff at the hotel made our stay extra special and were always courteous, friendly and always willing to help. We definitely recommend this hotel.

bad points traveled 14hours in total to be told the room was not ready had to wait another hour feeling realy tired ths the last thing you need to hear specialy from a 4star hotel. we went to get some breakfast while we was waiting as we were bed and breakfast and on the last day we went to the reception to pay our bill and on the bill was our breakfast for the first day of our holiday when questioned your not entitled to breakfast first day you think after waiting about it would have been courteous to give it free. thats all the bad points. after receiving my room it was excellent clean and the staff was amazing would go back. the breakfast was very good

I had a trip planned over the coming weekend with the said hotel; due to emergency reasons i had to cancel the trip. Reservations team was totally unresponsive to the request. I seriously didnt expected such response/service levels from the hotel. Pretty disappointed.

Most of the hotels are actually different from what you see on their websites but to my surprise this hotel was much better in terms of cleanliness and maintenance than my expectations. I stayed in Ocean Palms for 3 days with my family from 9th Dec to 12th Dec in a suite room and we enjoyed our stay thorougly. The hotel is ideally located near the famous Calangute, Baga and Candolim beach. The staff was very polite and helpful.
The only complaint which I have is that before booking I was told that none of the Palm rooms had a balcony therefore I booked a suite room for higher price, however, the hotel has few Palm rooms which had a balcony. Secondly, I was told that suite room is pool facing however, we were alloted a corner suite room at the back side of the hotel.

Kudos to the hotel staff for making our trip memorable.

Thanks,
Ajay
