We got upgraded every night, since we were unsure of how long we were staying. Staff became friendly post 1st night stay, were very helpful and polite. No wifi in rooms which is good, since the point was to be at the beach (7 min walk). They staff provided us with glasses, fresh towels when we requested. We kept our...

Our room had ac, tv, ceiling fan and balcony. It was fine for us because we were looking for a cheap stay with ac and close to the beach. We stayed 7 nights and the room has never been cleaned. First day we gave tips to the housekeeping guys hoping that it might improve but nothing happened. The location is...

The hotel is a normal 2 star GOA hotel. You shouldn't expect much of it. Cleaning in the room never happens (I guess it is upon request and additional payment). Rooms with AC have worst view from the window ever. Sometimes it is noisy at night and you can hear everything that happens in a hall or outside. Breakfast is...

When we went to room it was dirty walls, smelled bad, bathroom was horrible, we have booked 2 nights in there and...

We booked two nights here between travelling onwards to Hampi. The restaurant/bar area is great, very attentive staff and extensive menu. The pool was excellent - highlight of the hotel. However, our room was poor. We could have stayed more than one night if it was just old, but the floor was filthy, the bathroom disgusting, missing tiles and filled...

the place is ok. The owner of the property could have done a better job with the property and the facility provided. The person on the reception called "Zoro" wasn't courteous but very much to the point. A first impression of this kind is a big doubt on how would the place be. The staff was way to helpful though...

The rooms are not so clean and feels congested. Hot water arrangement in bathroom is horrible and unsafe. Good for friends. Not suitable for family. There is a swimming pool which they close at around 6 pm. Pool was clean.

We stayed at William Beach Retreat for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay, the rooms were basic but clean. The highlight of our trip to Goa was our home cooking class with Shiva Mandre, he approached us the hotel lobby and he asked us if we'd like to come and do a cooking class at his house. For only 1300rs...
