“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

the park goa had a strange way of entering, as the car limbered through a narrow muddy lane and stopped in front of a gate, we wondered why park hotel was built this way but anyway, it was all white and awsome looking facing the beach, the first dissappointment began when we got to know that spa was not there, no gymnasium and whatever they had mentioned it was not there yet you were made to pay the fee they quote which looked as if we were conned. food in the restaurant was bad, breakfast was good, service was great, but food was not good at all. when i mentioned this to the front desk they said we are a new hotel and we are just settling in, i said i dont pay to be guniea pigs for you to try your services on us. would stay here if things improve a lot and they stopped lying about their services.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent stay at The Park on Holiday Beach and also for your feedback.

We are extremely upset to know that your stay here has been less than great.

We are sorry that you felt we were trying to con you but we have not mentioned on the internet about the spa and the gym facilities being available. I am sorry if your agent or anyone else gave you the wrong information. Though we do have recommended spas and gyms within walking distance from the hotel. We will be opening our spa in the next few months and look forward to seeing you back then.

I am also dissappointed to know that you didnot find the food options good enough but I am sure we will be able to help you change your mind the next time as we have introduced an Italian made Pizza oven and also do some live grills.

We look forward to welcoming you back and ensuring that you have a great stay. I would like you to personally get in touch with the undersigned whenver you plan your next vacation in Goa.

Best regards,

Saurabh Khanna

Excellent Location, Bang on the beach with a gorgeous pool and terrace bar, thats it! its apparentlt a new hotel but has aged already. leaking pipes, smelly drains, stained upholstry, cracking tiles and scary pictures on all doors is something you need to reconcile with and then your stay is assured pleasant. I have to mention though that the staff tries very hard to please. Good guys, there!
Slightly overpriced...

Visit the Park On Holiday Beach Goa, if you want to be at the heart of all the life in Goa! It's got great rooms and the hotel is right on the beach. The Bar on the upper deck facing the beach has some great music too!

hi,
when i booked this hotel through make my trip it showed many features such as spa jim babysitting,Bath Tub,Daily Newspaper,Fruit Basket etc..none of these was available.
got disappointed by this,
i had my 2 year old daughter wit me...the only things amused me where i had pool just right in front of my room obviously for that i paid a good money.i could have enjoyed hotel taj at that cost.entry to beach was straight from hotel.
besides this i had wonderful vacation cause room service was great,staff was very generous and courteous,my daughter mixed with then easily some of them spared time to play wit her.
i would definitely like to name pooja,quine and siraj for their generous service.except few things which i was really not looking for as this vacation was for my daughter and wife. i had an wonderful vacation wit this hotel.. i have lots videos and snaps of moments spent with my daughter and wife which ill like to preserve for my lifetime.thank you for everything.
and the last plz add some more food options in Ur restaurant.
wish u luck ahead.
regards

We stayed in the hotel from 15 Feb onwards. It is right on beach with a very beautiful sunset view from the dock. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Service is quick and efficient. Breakfast is good but for lunch and dinner I would recommend you go out and try so many different restaurants offering great food.
Hotel restaurant has signature dessert which was awesome.
Do enjoy cocktails with music and wonderful sunset on the dock. Spend an evening besides the pool on the colourful beds.

Dear All

We have been to Goa for our Honeymoon and stayed @ The Park for 4 days. The Hotel is ideally located near Calungate and is on the beach side - Holiday Beach. At first you may find the hotel to be small and not like a star hotel.. But when u check in, u realise u were wrong. Amongst all my earlier travels and stay at various hotels in india and abroad, i must say, we were very impressed with the park... The interiors were truly amazing and the decor was fab.. It has a very chic feeling and the rooms were very very nicely done up. The AC of the room was fantastic to beat the summer heat. The only 2 drawbacks of this hotel were, parking and the food. While we had only breakfast, it was not upto the mark. We did share this feedback with the hotel also.
Not to forget, the ever smiling and courteous staff. They took very good care of us, and even helped us in finding local spots for sight seeing and experience the local flavor of Goa.
Overall, we had a fantastic time,and surely recommend this hotel to all our friends and relatives.Would not mind staying here again on our next visit.

The Park on Holiday Beach as the name suggests is an excellent beach property. It has an awesome swimming pool, very well done restaurant on the deck facing the beach. Good food, courteous staff and excellent decor

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor at the front facing south are the only rooms with beach view.
