We usually stay in Club Mahindra properties, but this was an official tour and the host institution had booked it for us. We hardly got any time to explore, but it is right at the Dona Paula beach. There is also a...

Breakfast is just adequate with not much variety but generally well done. The sea side restaurant is good, but menu is not extensive and slightly on higher side cost-wise. The pool and pool...
