Stayed for a night. loved the hotel for its hospitality, comfort, food and the super awesome bar at the swimming pool. Needless to say the accessibility via public transport, beach n hotels. Thank you!

We stayed 3 nights in Hotel Colva Kinara in january this year. When we came to the hotel at 1.30 pm and tried to check in it tooks couple of hours and nobody explained to us what happeneds and why we had to wait. Happily it was daytime so others went out and I stayed and waited. I asked couple of times how long time does our check in take and everytime the answer was: two minutes... well it tooks almost two hundred minutes:) Two hours waiting for check in is too long time without a proper explanation!!Finally we got the rooms and those rooms were not ready: no towels, no bottled water. Anyway rooms were clean and enough good for sleeping.
The breakfast was ordinary, not so good, not bad (except coffee, it was not decent!) . The food in the restaurant of the hotel was good Indian food and service was fluent.
This hotel have a good location, the building is quite new, clean rooms, good food in the restaurant, nice swimmingpool, all the possibilities to succees but
I will not recommend this hotel to anybody because of the hotel staff at reception. They really don't know what is the hospitality.

Hotel location & rooms are good, Hotel staff at reception/ front desk are very crude & rude in their dealing with customers which makes any one irritating & uncomfortable. Their is no management to take care of guests except the two ladies at reception, very unprofessional in dealing & behaviour. Other hotel staff is good but poorly managed. Hotel tarrif they are charging is ambiguous or they are charging as per their whims. Any how i wouldnt recommend for pleasent stay to any senstive guests. However is good for casual visitors. Guests to negotiate room tarrif as they are charging haphazardly.

Room Tip: Negotiate tarrif. Rooms facing pool side.

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
