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

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... More

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... More

we have been here during low season (almos beginning of the monsoon) so, not possible to take a safe swimming in the close seaside beach, but luckily, this nice hotel has a swimming pool that is ideal to relax and have some fun. As in low season, hotel was not crowded with families, so almost quiet. Rooms are okay for... More

The Resort was good and we had gone with all male friends. Extension work is in progress in the resort for expansion, so there were few shortcomings. However, the overall stay was good. The pool is nice. Room service is bare minimum. There is no telecom facility in the rooms and the guest has to walk all the way to... More
