1. Re: Mosquitos?

We stayed there last year over Christmas and New Year. It's a typical 2* hotel, quite basic but clean. I don't know if all rooms are the same but ours had a separate lounge with a 3 piece suite and coffee table. We had 2 balconies but had to ask for the plastic chairs to sit on. I have posted a review on this site in the hotel review section. The gala dinners on Christmas Night and New Year's Eve were nothing special, they tried to cook western style but obviously the Indian food was better. Location is great as it's on a side street just off the main Calangute high street so it's very central and only a short walk to the beach steps.

We weren't too bothered by mozzies but always take the plug-in gizmo as well as the lotions etc. They are around at this time of year so you will need some protection.
