“Great getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We travelled to this resort in the month of October with two kids. We stayed for 5 days and following are the highlights

The postive points:
- Beach
- Good food.. or...should I say Great!
- Courteous hotel staff (especially the retaurant team)
- Spacious gardens
- Good room service (especially with kids)
- Activity zone for kids

Not so good points:
- Small pool (well maintained though)
- Round the clock food not available
- Can get very busy with weddings, parties, etc...
- Far from all tourist attractions. My suggestion is to spend the
time in the resort rather than take the trip to see the sights.

This is definitely a place I have recommended to my friends.

Just returned from a fabulous wedding at Holiday Inn, Goa. I was there for a week and I have to say that the hotel and its excellent staff more than met my expectations! (as well as the bride and groom's!). From the time we checked in to the time we left, the hotel staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful. The beach wedding arranged by the hotel and its planners, was out of this world!! The hotel arranged various functions over the week and the food was fab and the desserts even better! Most of the foreign guests were left speechless.
Would go there again and again....wedding or no wedding! :-)..

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are lovely. However, no long mirrors in the rooms :-(..got one quickly on...

Nice place to stay, but F & B staff must be more cooperative. they very strict with buffet timings. they won't even wait or ask if guest are still eating the buffet before removing it. there is no food available in Late night. with hotel of this standards they should provide 24 hrs services.

We just stayed for 3nights and its was a memorable holiday from start till end. Every bit of the stay was commendable and the resort has direct and private access to the white sand beach which is very clean and it has a beautiful restaurant as well Beach Grill".
The pool is very beautiful and very well maintained, the landscaping of the resort is just amazing and the lobby is very well decorated. All in all Holiday Inn is the best in Goa

Room Tip: Go for deluxe rooms instead of plaza room

Open access to the white sand beach. Perfect destination of couple holidays. We forund it better than the Leela resort next door. Restaurant Fisherman's whorf is just 7 mins walk.. and its a food paradise with beautiful river flowing next t it.

Room Tip: Plaza rooms are little small. try Delux ones

this resort has a lovely beach which it shares with leela Goa, and one could jog down the beach for several kilometers in the morning without any disturbance or dirt.
The rooms are comfortable, but more like individual cottages, and they have no access to the beach nor do they have a view.
The phone in the bathroom is missing, as were the slippers (the stone floor gets very cold with the airconditioning), but the rest of the room was fine.
The buffet breakfast was quite satisfactory and the food overall ok. The great pity is that we were in a beach resort and our rooms did not open out on to the beach
Also the approach roads are very narrow and winding and if the driver were to take them at some speed, one got quite queasy in the stomach!
Except Airtel, all other services have acccess only near the reception, so that is a real problem!

Room Tip: i really dont know, if you get a room near the reception, then you can get mobile phone access

We stayed at this hotel in a family suite and were thrilled overall. Barring some minor issues everything else was good. Its a place for a family holiday so if you are a couple looking for some time alone then not a good choice. Good indian food with variety, nice pool, cleanliness upto the mark. Issues we faced were like bathroom drain clogged the first day but taken care off, due to party near beach side they closed the beach bar but there are gud shacks on the beach so no probs. overall a nice 4 star resort.
