La Ben Resort, Colva Beach.
I stayed at this hotel in February 2014 for a month and was a little apprehensive as it is billed as a cheap budget hotel. I arrived early morning without suitcase as the airline had managed to loose it. Dennis on reception was very helpful and showed me where I could freshen up as my room wasn't quite ready and buy a few essential items. He is also the one to see regarding any problems, booking trips or hiring transport, a great guy. My suitcase arrived two days later and was delivered to my room.
My room although basic had all that I needed and was very clean and tidy. The rooms are cleaned daily and bedding and towels changed every other day by friendly helpful staff. There is also a very reasonable laundry service available. The garden restaurant is amazing, with a mixture of lighting and decore that sets the perfect ambiance for your evening meal. The restaurant manager Lionel and his wife B along with all the staff are the perfect hosts and able to advise on all matters especially the food which is excellent whichever dish you choose, but be advised, you will need to book as this is the best restaurant in Colver. Several nights a week there is a variety of entertainment on. The hotel is situated in an ideal location, near the beach with easy access to bars, shops restaurants and transport.
I spoke to many of the guests who stay here for up to four months year after year.
All in all this little gem in Colva beach is the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
