I stayed hear for a week and based on my personal experience and observation I would say its a well deserved 3.5 star hotel/resort.

Resort is very well maintained, rooms are clean and nicely decorated, food is nice and tendering, front desk and house keeping staffs are very well groomed and polite.

However there are few things which restrained me to rate this establishment by 4 Star is that; Access from the main road (Bumpy and damaged road) and the service efficiency of Restaurant staff members. Additionally, its located into bit interiors and not the right choice for those who love to retreat at beach front hotels.

Notwithstanding, its good for stay for many more reasons and I may consider to stay hear once again whenever I will come back to Goa.

What a lovely hotel, if piece and quiet sunbathing around a picturesque pool setting is your thing you won't go far wrong staying here.
Excellent room facilities ,well comfortable massive bed ,walk in shower , air conditioning and ceiling fan ,tv if you need it and stocked mini bar and bottled water daily , rooms overlooking pool area.
Very friendly and attentive staff,they never stop smiling.
Ten minute walk down to beach ,where shacks and sun beds are plentifull.
Five minute walk onto main stretch of bars and restaurants ,where you will find all tastes are catered for.
This in my opinion and others who have stayed here previously and stayed in other hotels on subsequent visits is probably the best in the area.
Try it you won't be disappointed .

Third time to Goa.Previous stayed in Marriot in Panjim,so thought we would stay in Candolim,closer to restaurants,shops etc.Really pleased with this hotel.Staff were excellent.Room was really nice and shower was huge!The gardens were very well looked after,we didn't use the pool as we walked to the beach each day(only 10 mins.).The hotel is lit up at night and looks beautiful.I would certainly recommend this hotel and would definately stay here again.Give it a go,you will not be disappointed.An extra bonus is the Chocolate Cafe which is on the corner where you walk to the beach.Mmmm!!

Room Tip: Ground floor overlooking the garden was great.

My husband and I have visited Goa every year over last seventeen years. This was our last year. But what an excellent hotel this one is, we are so glad we chose this for our last time. It is worthy of a 5* . Value for money, worth every penny. The rooms were very clean , the shower big enough for two, helps to save water. Toiletries were nice and smelly and were well stocked. The bedroom was big as was the bed. We had a ground floor room with balcony overlooking the garden, and was nice to sit out on an evening, listening to the entertainment of an evening. All the staff from reception to pool to the dining staff were attentive , making sure everything was ok. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Puteen and his colleagues who smiled every morning whilst serving breakfast making our start to the day a happy one. Thank you. I would recommend this hotel it is the best have I ever stayed in Goa.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor overlooking the garden. We only had one problem people dragging chairs...

I loved the country inn and suites, its not on the best side of the road (i.e. opposite to the beach) but its only a short walk to the main restaurants in Candolim and the beach. The hotel was clean, rooms spacious and check in staff helpful. My room looked over the pool and was a great place to have cocktails in the evening. The pool was pleasant, although a little cold. I've stayed in Candolim a few times and this hotel certainly had the best service. I left early in the morning, before breakfast was served, so can't comment on that.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool.

Namaskar, Greetings from Country Inn and Suites by Carlson, Candolim, Goa!!

I am delighted to note that we have met your expectations during your stay with us. At Country Inn and Suites by Carlson, Candolim, Goa. We are committed to consistently providing warm, efficient and discrete service to our guests and their appreciation and acknowledgement is always our greatest reward.

I agree that the hotel is not on the beach but is a very short walk along greens which usually adds to the experience. The location was chosen very strategically to be calm and serene and at the same time near to the beach. A lot of our Guests enjoy the serenity around the pool and find it the perfect place to relax and loosen themselves, I am glad that you found it good too. I have passed your compliments about the service to the staff and they are excited to know about the same.

Once again I would like to thank you for penning down the beautiful lines of appreciation and we do hope that we will have the opportunity to see you with us again, soon.

Warm Regards,
Sumit Goyal
