This is a nice hotel in Porvorim which is about 5 kms from Panjim city and about 10 kms from Calangute beach. The room tariffs are quite reasonable. The rooms are pretty much spacious. They have only 2 floors with rooms. The Gym was under renovation for quite some time and was not operational during my stay. I have stayed here for multiple times during the past 8 to 10 months for a week or two on business trips. There is a roof top swimming pool as well, but the same is very small and I guess has been created only for namesake. The room service is decent enough. Food is average with certain dishes tasting good (such as chicken sizzler in barbeque sauce). There is a mini bar too, but the fridge is not cold enough in some rooms. The hotel is clean and the staff is courteous and polite. There are twin rooms available as well (i.e. there is a door in between 2 rooms which they will open on request – it’s locked otherwise). The breakfast is decent with not much variety and daily variations though. They call the hotel as a 4 star one, but it is no more than a 3 star hotel. There is a wine shop just outside the hotel so you can keep buying alcohol whenever you want. There is a CCD, Dominos and Baskin robbins on the other side of the road. All in all, considering the room tariff, the hotel is good.
