Stayed here for 7 nights as R&R after a busy tour of the Golden Triangle.
We were warmly welcomed by the reception stay and shown to our rooms
The rooms are spread out over a large area and ours overlooked the small pool on the 1st floor
The room was nice and cool with quiet a/c and had a balcony.
We tried nearly all the restaurants including Fins on the beach, thought this was pricey.
We preferred eating in the Waterfall Café as this had a buffet service with a very good variety of food.
The waiters were very attentive and friendly though sometimes forgetful when we ordered drinks and brought something else.
The egg station chef at breakfast did a lovely cheese omelette.
The pools were nice and cooling with towels provided
The place was full but you would not know unless you went to the restaurant at peak times
We organised several trips out of the hotel, the tour desk was not very helpful and had to make a phone call when we made simple enquiries about a place we wanted to visit.
The hotel should produce a fact sheet (the one in the room is useless) about what sights there were.
The is an efficient though pricey taxi service, the hotel had produced a price list of the taxi costs. I say pricey by Goa standards, but we went to the Taj Exotica and their taxi charges were double what Zuri had negotiated. I feel sorry for their guests as they were being ripped off by taxis.
Our taxi drivers spoke English and gave us a lot of useful information.
There were two beach shacks on the beach, nothing to do with the hotel. Their prices were half of what the hotel charges, though the service is slower.
Kuoni customers please note – if you pay extra at the time of booking for half or full board, you will find it will be cheaper if you pay at the hotel, especially using the Meal Ticket system.
Dinner at the Waterfall Café buffet costs about Rs990, you can buy a set of ten meal tickets which cost Rs650 a meal, worth getting.
Waiter and doorman were very friendly and chatty.
Nice rooms and great shower
We came her because they provided Yoga sessions, this was not available during our stay, we had to go to the Taj Exotica for this at an extra cost (Taxis etc.)
If we had known we would not have booked to go to the Zuri
Food at Fins was expensive
Tour desk did not know much about places to visit
It was very hot and humid, so walking outside was confined to early morning or sun down
Sheets on out twin beds were not wide enough so they did not tuck in under the mattress, so sheets became a rumpled mess in the night
The timing of the room cleaning was not reliable and often we were disturbed mid-afternoon to have our room cleaned.
Hope this is useful
