“Not as advertised”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Last day of a 4 week stay at Chimes 2 in Candolim. The 1 bed apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a reasonably large complex called Saldhaner Palms, also known as JS Palms. Chimes is marketed as a luxury apartment in a quiet, luxurious location. Nothing could be further from the truth. The complex is scruffy and run down, cheap and cheerful budget accommodation (850 to 1,000 IR a night) meaning that it is constantly full of loud, rowdy groups of Indian tourists, determined to enjoy their holiday, screaming, running around, shouting and playing music at all hours of the day and night. People in the pool at 7am was not an isolated incident, it happened regularly and management bet did nothing to stop it. There are no loungers by the pool, reasons given were that there is a large sunbathing terrace on the roof, and the pool gets no sun. Well the terrace is used for drying the washing and there's no loungers there, and half the pool is in direct sunlight all afternoon. The property manager actually told me I didn't want to sunbathe by the pool anyway, as all the Indian tourists would stare at me!

The apartment itself has been modernised, and comes complete with new washing machine, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge, tv and new air con. The refurb has been done poorly, with new bathroom fixtures being put in in top of old tiles, and marble chipped away to fit it rather than doing it properly. Same in the kitchen, where new work top has been fitted against an old, rotten window sill. Better than your average £10 a night room, but not luxury. There is little to no storage in the room, particularly for a 4 week stay and we had to hang our clothes on a curtain rail. The single wardrobe has around 2 feet long of hanging space with a few shelves, only 1 bedside too. More storage could easily be added.

The location is not great, you have the choice of chancing the very busy Panjim road, or cutting through a dark wood at the back of the property. We ended up paying a fortune in taxis.

I feel let down by this rental, we paid far more than we have in the past to get somewhere decent, but it did not live up to it's promise. For the money there's far better available.

Dear guests, thanks for staying at The Chimes. However, we are shocked to read your feedback, since you never mentioned any of these complaints during your 4 week stay.
Your feedback about the apartment, complex and the location is not correct at all. The apartment’s location is the most envious one, close to the beach, Candolim road, supermarkets and restaurants, all at a walking distance of 5- 7 minutes. The quality of our apartments is appreciated by everyone and is exactly as shown in the pictures. Infact, the guests from UK who stayed just before you have given a wonderful feedback about the apartment. As for the storage in the apartment, we are adding another cupboard, since it was suggested by other long stay guests too.
I and my Property Manager keep in constant touch with all our guests and get to action on any mention of any kind of problem. I tried calling you a no. of times, but you did not respond to my calls or to my emails. Our Property Manager came to see you a no. of times, you did not even mention anything to her. We have built a name based on trust, quality and service and we ensure every effort to keep it up. However, we still deeply regret any inconvenience caused to you.

“Great Time At The Chimes”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed at The Chimes Candolim for 23 nights from 30th January using both apartments which have all the aminities and are spotless.. Ritu phones regulary to check you to see if you need anything.
The Chimes is located about 5 minutes from Newtons supermarket resturants bars and shops
The pool does not have any sun beds I think this is because sun does not come round pool.
But most people use the beach which is about 15 minutes walk
Cleaner comes every day good security with two good guards
Sidu the pool and odd job man is very helpful and always smilling
I would recommend this holiday rental for anyone staying in Candolim

“Very Enjoyable Stay”
Reviewed February 22, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Have a really enjoyable 2 week stay at the Chimes inCandolim, Ritu the owner was most helpful right from the initial enquiry. When we arrived Ritu and her delightful family were there to meet us and made us feel welcome. The apartment is very spacious and spotlessly clean and serviced every day, it has 3 balconies overlooking the pool. It is a short walk to the main road where there are plenty of resturants, bars and shops and of course the beach. Ritu and her representative Mira regulary checked wth us to make sure everything was fine and Ritu also booked our train tickets for us before we left home.
There were just a couple of minor niggles such as Wi-Fi and wardrobe space we explained this to Ritu and she was going to sort this out.
Thanks to Ritu for a very enjoyable stay in a lovely apartment.
