“Pathetic and Greedy Management - avoid at all cost.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The management had demanded a 100% up front booking amount before our stay at the Kinara. My father in law was taken seriously ill a week before our scheduled departure, and we had to cancel the booking. Guess what? The hotel refused to return our money, claiming that their 'charter booking' is done 60 days prior to arrival, and that they couldn't return our money as they couldn't 'open the inventory last minute to sell the rooms as we close the room for pre booked guest'. What total nonsense.
I obviously haven't been to the hotel, and am unlikely to ever go there. Avoid this place at all cost.

Room Tip: Avoid this place, it's run by a bunch of liars and crooks.

Very clean hotel with good services. The staff are very helpful and kind.
The Indian food from the hotel restaurant is very good and it is not as spicy that you can feel on Indian restaurants that not have any foreign guests. You can also find non Indian food here as well if you prefer that.
The rooms are in good standard and very well cleaned. They clean the rooms every day. Some of the rooms had view over a garbage pile and some have a view over the pool area. I prefer the view over the pool. ;-) The rooms have AC but the AC system is quite noisy.
The pool is clean and fresh. The WIFI just have cover in the reception and the speed of it is not so good. The bad speed makes it impossible to upload e.g. pictures from your stay on e.g. Facebook.

There is a lot of charter tourists from Russia staying at the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view over the pool area.

After paying 65000 rs. we had to eat only bread and butter and for dinner we had to go out to some other restaurant for food and BRAZILLA IS "C" CATEGORY RESTAURANT IN COLVA KINARA. Waiters are third class and they do not know how to give services to customers and managers too are responsible for this and please give them proper training. "IT WAS A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE AND BECAUSE OF THIS OUR WHOLE TRIP WAS SPOILED"

We stayed in the Knara during November, we left after three nights, it was hell.

We have been to India about six times and this hotel attitude shocked even us. The hotel was full of school boys who played football on the landings, were awake and shouting from 6am until 3 in the morning. The guests made repeated requests to the hotel management to get them to reduce the noise level but frankly the management did not care and nothing was done, just a smile and a shrug. There was a general comment from the guests that the staff and management made very little effort for guest requests.

Given that we were all sleep deprived the meals were pretty poor and the general level of cleaning could have been better. Yes i know its India and its a dusty place, but i mean just general cleaning.

The Kinara costs more than many hotels in Colva I consider our stay there a disaster. We had far better service at other places for a far better place. We ended up at the Skylark which was a positive joy.

So if you have a choice use another hotel and get a better price for a nicer stay.

Room Tip: I could not reccomend any room here

Its really a nice place for a couple to stay there with really a good quality of food in Vitaminz and also in Brazilia. Infact when we reached Colva it was nearly 03.15 - 03.30 and were desperately searching for food all the other hotels refused to provide us the same but when asked in Brazilia they didnt refused to provide. They took the order and provided us the food in hardly 15 mins. That was the best thing i had experienced.

Hotel was decent for its price with nice retaurants and pool. The vegetarian breakfast was by pool side which was tasty and ambience was very good. Hotel itself is very clean and rooms were very good. very clean hotel, near to colva beach, best thing being vegeterian is that there are a couple of veg restaurants nearby so food headache was off.. reception girls especially 'Sufilla' was very helpful. colva beach is very near and other facilities are very near and easily available. stayed with wife for 5 days of divali vacation..would suggest going to palolem and agonda beaches for a starter...and benalim beach near colva is better then colva itself as it gets crowded..
hotel was very good and would recommend anyone to go there and stay...try and bargain for prices of rooms and might get a very good rate..

Room Tip: choose room at the back corner on the pool side and on the side of open field.
