“Excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had a lovely experience with this hotel. The staff is very hospitable. They complied to each and every request we made (however minor) despite of it being a peak season. The service time per request was very short and we never had to call twice for anything.

About the hotel: The pool is kept quite clean and very close to almost all the rooms (arrangement of rooms is around the pool). We had a room facing the Lagoon and to watch the Sun rise from beyond the hills was "picture perfect".

About the hotel location: Its more or less between Baga and Anjuna. Taxi stand is right outside. Saturday night market is at a walkable distance (300 mtrs away) and Wednesday market (at Anjuna) can be driven to (about 1.5-2 Km). There are a lot of eateries (both upscale and standard) close by (again walkable but not with kids).


Only a minor flip side to my experience was the Non-veg section of Breakfast, it was always the same two dishes. Could have shown some creativity here. Otherwise perfect :) . Will certainly visit again.

Hats off to the hotel staff....staff is the main reason behind the sucess of the hotel.check in by satya was really quick.though we reached late they had kept our lunch seperate..really appreciated that. restuarant staff was also very attentive.taheer took good care of our kid food who is too fussy in eating but he made our job easy by going out of the way and arranging food what my son likes.thanks taheer.food i will say is another highlight of this hotel.everything from bf lunch to dinner was like awesome..rooms are very spacious.we had booked a deluxe room which was upgraded to suite room thanks to prashant...who even allowed us to check out late and was too coperative.jagdish was good too.will definately stay here again if visiting goa.
shivam verma(gm) too was reachable and very warm.

We were stayed at this place during our goa trip in the February. We had an amazing experience at this place. Just initially we haven't got room keys on time because room was not cleaned before our arrival. That was the negative point I would say. Apart from this food was excellent and hotel room also very nice. We have got very good deal with respect cost as well. This hotel has nice swimming pool and you have given a choice to have a breakfast at poolside. We have a room facing towards poolside.
Overall I would recommend this hotel if you are planning to visit Goa.

Cheers
Sush

Lazy Lagoon is a small, fairly quiet hotel with about 40 rooms - it is part of the rapidly expanding Sarovar Group of hotels. It is about 1 mile from Baga beach. I booked two weeks in November/December through Cosmos/Monarch for a total cost of about £500 per person on a bed and breakfast basis including flights and transfers, which was several hundred pounds cheaper than Olympic and other tour operators. Rooms were fine, spacious enough with very large bed, flat screen TV, small balcony overlooking pool, pleasant bathroom with walk-in shower.

Dining room was air conditioned with reasonably priced a-la-carte menu, including curries and fish dishes at about £4 and even whole lobster at about £15... Large bottled Kingfisher about £1, bottles of wine from about £10... Choice of dining in the restaurant or garden area. Small air conditioned bar with dance floor and also outside open bar. Breakfast was fine - mainly Indian cuisine but with the option of eggs, omelettes, sausages.

Reasonable size swimming pool, with only about ten sun beds which proved to be more than adequate during our stay as other guests used them infrequently. Small gym with excellent treadmill, bikes, weights, exercise benches. Spa with very reasonably-priced massages and treatments (£12 for full body wrap). Steam room available which we didn’t use.

Hotel reception will assist with car hire (£14 per day or £70 per week) moped hire (£3 per day) or motorcycle hire (Royal Enfield Bullet £4 per day) - no helmets supplied. They drive on the left but it doesn’t count for much... so only embark on this if you have an adventurous streak. Taxis are safer and cheap, but a lot less fun.

Baga beach is about 1 mile from the hotel and a taxi will drop you there for about £2. On the way to the beach you will pass some really excellent restaurants on the right hand side - Poco Loco (part of Royal Goan Beach Resort ) has full menu including Mexican, with jazz on Friday and vocalist Nellie on Wednesday, J & A’s, Poisson Rouge... and also Jamies which is in Baga on the left just before you reach the beach parking area. They are very reasonable by our standards (fillet steaks at under £5) and drink is also cheap. If you have time, I would recommend that you try them all.

If you are a young party-loving person you will probable enjoy the busier and larger Baga and Calangute beaches (5mins & 10 mins by taxi). If you prefer a more sedate setting, try Candolim and Sinquerim beaches (15mins & 20mins by taxi). Further north, Mandrem and Querim beaches are clean and quieter (30mins & 45mins by taxi). The museum, observatory and new library in Panajim (30mins by taxi) are worth a visit and historic Old Goa is about a 15 minute drive from Panajim.

Lazy Lagoon represents excellent value for money. Some of the previous reviewers comments about cleanliness, linen, etc., have some merit, but I did not find the standards so poor to warrant criticism. Staff at the hotel were brilliant. Guests were mainly from India which was a very welcome aspect of the holiday - no offensive drunken yobs in evidence! There is not much in the way of amusement for children - just the pool and beaches which are a short drive away as mentioned above. Best money exchange rates are obtained near the hotel - the tailors shop opposite Sun Village was offering 88ir to the £ - avoid the exchange desk at the airport who were only offering 75ir to the £. One other tip from a frequent visitor was to buy malaria tablets in local chemists - stronger tablets (one tablet a week with overlap of only two weeks) are available for a few rupees, rather than the extortionate prices charged in the UK.

So, an excellent choice of hotel and I will be returning.

We first stayed at the Lazy Lagoon two and a half years ago. We enjoyed our stay, but felt the staff we very unhelpful never around and so on. What a difference this time. We have just spent fifteen wonderful days and really think the place has pulled up its socks. The waiting staff were all amazing and all deserve a round of applause. Ajeet gets a special mention for being extra helpful and always smiling. The only downside to a wonderful stay was Bon the barmen. He has a definite attitude problem, and borders on the rude at times.

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room then you will not have people above playing furniture removals at all hours.

This place is okay but definitely does not feel 4 star.
The location is good except be prepared for a long trip from the airport (about an hour by car). Have to say it was a quite relaxed location away from the noise and crowds. The saturday night markets are only a short stroll away and Baga beach is about a 10 minute drive though you can walk it in about half an hour if you feel adventurous. Taxis are always available outside the hotel and cost rs100 to get to Baga.

The reception staff are not welcoming or friendly as other reviewers have said, however I found the opposite in the restaurant where the waiters were great.
Do NOT stay here if cleanliness is important to you! The rooms were okay but there were stains on everything from the chair and curtains to the pillows and sheets. Towels were disgusting, all 'fresh' towels delivered to the room each day were stained and old and always smelt of tobacco.
Air-conditioning had a mind of its own and really didn't cope well with the humidity in Goa. TV remotes also broken, air-conditioning vent looked like it was going to fall off the wall, shelves in the shower were broken, just in general it felt like the place was falling apart a bit.

The nights that we stayed, there was a singer with a keyboard by the pool every night that carried on late into the night that could be heard very loudly in the room. While I'm sure the intention was to entertain guests at the restaurant, it was impossible to get to sleep with the singing and I noticed many hotel guests going out to their balconies and shutting the balcony doors in an attempt to shut out the noise!!

If considering staying here I would definitely consider whether it is worth the money considering the very average rooms.
