“1:15 am: Gangnam style....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The pick up from the airport at 04:30 am was well organized and the check-in went very smooth. The cottage itself was brand new and we were the first ones that moved it. However, the property, which consist of 6 cottages, has not yet been cleaned from the building debris nor has it been landscaped in any way. I also as disturbed by the fact that it was located right next to a rubbish dump, which attracted lots of crows in the morning though sleep was needed because of the bar/restaurant/pub which is adjecent as well and which was playing gangnam style music until the early hours. Neverteless, a clean (but seriously overprized!!!) place to stay.

The cottages are right behind the beach with lots of shacks around serving good and cheap food. Calangute beach invites for long strolls, but dont expect a lonley beach with privacy...

However, my next trip to Goa will be down towards Ajuna beach again...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Newly built place so very clean. Helpful staff. It's almost on the beach with many shacks around. Nothing fancy but really nice if you are looking for a beach hut feel.

Enjoyed my stay and could avoid drunk driving (because the beach shacks were right there).
