We were assigned a twin bedRoom .. can you believe they assigned twin bedRoom for a couple with the baby ? Upon complain, they...

Stayed for three nights at the hotel. It was a great experience. The staff was very helping and their service was very good. The food was ok. The best part was strolling on the beach during mornings and evenings. The ambience of the hotel is very expressive of the Goa culture. Loved this place and would visit again.

Great ambience. Rooms are good. Very nice housekeeping. You can take a great view of sea from the balcony of your room and also enjoy the evening in the garden facing sea beach which is quite pleasant.

The best hotel I've stayed in so far; 7 stars for the room, service, food and location. Celebrated a milestone birthday in July and was greeted with a delicious cake in our room. The staff was attentive and hospitable without overdoing it. The room was large, and opened out to the beach which seemed exclusive to the hotel. The food...

We paid almost $200 a night to stay here. The hotel is nice enough, with a varied breakfast buffet, access to a clean beach, and a nice clean pool. Other than that there is nothing special about the hotel or about the town. Some of the staff were very friendly, while others not so much. Most other people we talked...
