Having heard a lot about Goa I was really looking forward to this holiday,but I will definetly not be returning.
The airport on arriving passports checked 6 times then suitcases coming on 2 carousels of course 1 on each!.Then fighting off people wanting to push your trolley even though I kept telling them no money!
The hotel was very basic room even included 2 dead cockroaches after being cleaned,beds were very hard cobwebs hanging off every corner .The bathroom was loppy with filthy tiles and black mould in the tiles.
The pool was ok the towel lad and the bar staff were very good.The beer you would have drowned in it before getting drunk but the honeybee brandy is ok as is the wine when they have it.The food was very indifferent first time i've had curry flavoured cottage pie!After 4 days we never had another meal in the hotel but ate out.Never saw a refuse collection but watched the pigs ,cows ,dogs and humans going through all the rubbish bags.
Tailors on site are very good and cheap and quick..There is a big problem with russians who buy drinks from outside then get drunk and start shouting up till 3am.They are all very loud ignorant and objectionable worse than germans!
Use daytrippers for your trips great guide in Avi Plantation trip great,waterfalls not very impressed.
The shacks on the beach are just totally unhygenic and wouldn't recommend any.Got fed up with all the beggars and sellers and dogs on the beach.
Had nice meals in The Mango Grove ,Why Not,Hungry Horse, Rice Bowl and Nirvanas
Tipped all the waiters ,reception and all staff 100 rupees each which is about a days wages.
got to the airport once again they pounce on your luggage,pushed trolley 10 yards and demanded £1 got 10 rupees not very happy.Once inside the airport after bags had been scanned ,whaT I thought was a security person pushed my trolley 5 yds and also demanded £1 got nought.
We then showed our passports about 10 times before getting into the departure lounge.
Duty Free only takes sterling but snack bar only takes rupees!
All in all each to there own but it wasn't my cup of tea
