“superbly value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I booked through a travel agent and there was a group of friends and families. the rate we got for this five star property was the lowest that I have ever paid for a similar category. (around 4000 INR) the approach to the hotel is the only drawback. its actually tough to find it if you are driving yourself. our gps actually took us to the adjoining road. being new not too many people know about it. the hotel itself is remarkable (for the price). the pool is excellent, the rooms are good too. good amenities. the food is excellent. breakfast was included with the room rate and its layout was awesome with a good selection of indian dishes. the occupants at the hotel were mostly indians. the ambience of the bar next to the pool is great and there was live music on one out of four nights that we stayed here. check in and check our was very professional.

Room Tip: choose the pool view. there is NO view on the other side.

We were at this hotel from 22nd-27th of Feb, 2014. I was with my wife and my 3 year old girl.

We saw about this hotel on the website, and it looked, and decent reviews were given, hence, we went for it. The most important factor, being that it was away from Bhaga and Calungute, but still very much there. Although, not even 1 day we went to Bhaga, as we prefer Candolim for all our activities.

Firstly the positives - The room is elegant, with all modern facilities. LED, Lavazza Coffee Machine and the works. The internet was not working proper and I needed for all 6 nights. But, they gave an alternative and provided me with a internet dongle for the entire trip, and it worked like a charm. Also, they eventually only charged me for 1 Night usage.

The food in the restaurant was excellent. Have never eaten in hotels before, but, this one was exceptional. The staff at the restaurant were the best I have ever experienced. Special mention the Dharmender, who was very attentive, and took care of us extremely well.

Also, a special mention to Rajnish (I hope I have the name right, he is the F&B Supervisor). He was a great help, and went out of the way, when my daughter fell sick, and help me locate a good pediatrician.

The bar is very nice, and ofcourse the extended happy hours are very much welcome.

Swimming Pool is excellent.

The Childs Playroom was exceptional.

Negatives:-
Housekeeping - was probably the worst I have recently experienced. Out of the 7 days we needed to keep the room cleaned, it was done 2 times on time, and other times, it was never done, and some lame excuses kept coming our way. Inspite of informing the Front Office of the same. In one of the excuses, the HK staff said that their Master Key didn't work, and thats why cleaning was not executed. Well, what do I say to that now.

Front Office:- They had this lethargic look. Its like they are doing us a favor, by us staying at their hotel. Except for 1 girl, which I dont have the name, she atleast tried or seemed concerned to help. (She was from NorthEast India)

Well, thats about it.

Will I ever stay there again. For sure I will. Value for money is on offer here. They just need to do something about the negatives above, and I am sure it will be the best hotel in and around.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights during February 2014. We had two rooms travel party of 5 including my 11yr old daughter and my elderly mother. The hotel itself is very nice with good sized rooms. Location is good, fairly quiet area, only a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants and about 15 minute walk to the beach. Cleanliness was not the greatest though,especially in the rooms. The restaurant and bar areas are good with a great variety of food being served for breakfast. The majority of staff are very good, pool and restaurant staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately some of the reception staff appeared rude and unhelpful. At the time of our stay we were unfortunate to be within the middle of a taxi strike which meant there were no taxis available to take us to the airport on our final day. This obviously caused some distress as we had internal flights booked for onward travel. The reception staff were unable to provide any definitive solutions to our problem and on several occasions we were told to return later for more info. This continued during the night until the morning of our flight. We were then informed the hotel had their own transport and they would take us to the airport. Following a meeting with hotel management we were then informed that this would not be the case due to ongoing risks and that it was left to us to find alternative transport, ie use bus's to travel leaving us with very little time to get to the airport. This was just a complete nightmare. Fortunately due to the kindness of a local Goan bus driver who diverted his route to get us to the airport we just managed to get our flight.I totally understand the taxi strike was not down to the hotel staff, however, the total lack of care and disregard shown by the staff was unacceptable especially as no solutions were forthcoming. Very disappointing.

Hotel is not located on the main road and the approach could have been better with better lighting and directions. But everything else like the room , the service ,the swimming pool and the food was very good .Overall extremely good value for money.
4 Star hotel with modern sensibilities for sure. It had a very aesthetic look and feel and made my trip with my wife very memorable
