It is 10 minute drive to the happening Calangute beach and Sinquerim beach (water sport activities) and 10 minute walk to Candolim beach. VR is amidst quite environment and a clean hotel with decent swimming pool. The food in the hotel is also good and reasonably... More

On the top of that, I have loosed them for the future business and damaged my credibility. They said, the staff in the hotel is very rude. When they... More

Went to this Hotel in February 11. The hotel was a bit shabby but the garden and pool area was pleasant and the food was good. However, this is a budget hotel so you cannot expect a lot and for the price it was very good. The staff were very friendly. Rooms reasonably clean but very basic with television and... More

Valentines is a small but extremely friendly hotel tucked away behind a Hindu temple (interesting music) and only 5 minutes walk to the main road and a further 5 minutes to Candolim beach near the partly disassembled tanker River Princess, regular visitors will understand! The staff were very friendly with Govan, I think the assisstant manager, calling at the market... More

I first visited this hotel in February in 2008 with my Zambian girlfriend. This was my first experience of a 'third world' country and my heart sunk when the bus pulled up.

Valentines Retreat is a good location just a few mins away from the beach. I had been to the resort during the month of jan this year, and i must say the rooms were just not clean enough. The towels had stains on them and the a/c was not at all in working condition. The bathroom tub had a huge... More
