“Worst Choice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Me and my family was welcomed by a receptionist with full of attitude, I thought it was just her with this attitude but it turned out that all other staffs follow the same :). The way she explained me their rules, I felt I have come for a military camp :).

I had to complain about the room latch which wasn't closing from inside, the carpenter took 45 minutes to fix that when we were waiting to change after that long travel.

Rooms are probably of stone age, every thing there, the doors, windows, AC, TV are from probably 2000 or something. Their generators don't power the TV nor the AC and not even the intercoms, so during power cuts(which was of plenty during our stay)you will have to live with the fan and will have to walk to the reception for room service :).

Rooms are not cleaned unless you tell them, because they don't have spare keys, OMG!.

Food was bad too, I had dinner from there on my first night, never after that :).
Breakfast was included in my room tariff, however nothing to talk good about it as well.

Overall, a very disappointing hotel, service and food. I don't recommend this for any one.

Stayed b/w 25th dec'2013 to 29th Dec'2013....They think guests don't drink water when they are in Goa. They don't clean your room unless you ask them to do so...my room was cleaned only once in 5 day stay.
No options for b'fast....they give give you the same stupid b'fast everyday.

Never again !!!

Booked the Hotel online from Travel site due to its closeness to the beach which is just a short walk from the hotel Best part of the hotel was its Rooms are clean but more over the Toilets were very clean and hygienic which you rarely find in hotels of such catergory hotel staff was very cooperative except the guy managing the Morning Breakfast counter. Food was ok but the buffet breakfast menu was very bad with very limited choice hence I recommend that it booking this hotel please book without breasfast included Pool iat the hotel also nice and clean Over all good experience.

Room Tip: pool facing rooms are nice or even rooms 103 or 104 which are street facing

We visited in Nov 2013. This resort was recomended to us by friends. And it was just what we wanted. Comfortable and close to the beach. Food was good. And the staff can also assist in arranging for tours, water sports and vehicle hires. Friendly staff and cozy rooms.

Will definitely visit again and recomend to friends too...

Best part is hotel is so close to the beach that you can go anytime there within 5 mins.
Rooms are clean and hotel staff was very cooperative. They personally ask you if you need something or offer you good package of sight-seen.
Food and breakfast is ok. Pool is also ok.
Over all good experience.

Room Tip: Rooms which are pool facing are good choice. Just check TV and all other electronics equipments turn...
