“Decent resort property,,,,needs upliftment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Stayed at this property with family in last week of September'13 occupying 2 rooms on second floor of same block(one facing swimming pool other facing road/entrance). They have several blocks of 2 storey buildings comprising of 4 rooms on each floor.

Check-in/Check-out: The front office staff were prompt and swift during both arrival and departure. On request for checking out late by a couple of hours they agreed without too much of fuss and let us check out at 1:00 PM instead of 11:00 AM their standard time.

Rooms: Both the rooms were spacious and came with a kitchen cum storage area. It will be best to check if the rooms have spare charging points (missing in one room), Air conditioning and all lights working, and geysers (missing in one room). The fixtures in the bathroom were old (instead of an overhead shower they had a hand shower which refused to throw water). The saving grace was that the rooms/washrooms were clean and housekeeping staff made sure that they make the rooms every day.

Location: It’s just a minute walk to the main road where you will find almost everything; shopping, taxi's/bikes, restaurants. There is a hypermarket as soon as you exit the resort and hit the road "Delfino"...best place for chilled beer, souvenirs, gifts, snacks etc.

Food: We were on a package like most of the hotel guests and found the breakfast and dinner to be of sub standard with very limited options. The food ordered in room or in restaurant (a la carte) was still better. Chicken Club sandwich was for INR 120 and a pot of tea INR 35-40.

Sightseeing: This was one of the worst part if you are travelling with young kids. They take you to a few beaches, Agauda fort, temples etc on a bus after picking guests from their other property. Halts at the points are typically not more than 45 minutes to an hour and if you are someone who likes travelling on own terms; its best to hire a ride!

I would not mind staying at this property again minus their sightseeing and meals. One always has an option to order from menu /a la carte or explore elsewhere.

Room Tip: I think the rooms on 1 floor would be best facing pool or even otherwise.

The best thing about alor is their location but one thing is very disappointing that is they have different set of rules for indians and foreigners .for eg you will have a seperate plates for breakfast and a seperate room for the same.Indians cant drink tea or coffee near pool but they can which is very disgusting.After all we are in the same country so why so much of difference.will suggest to have common rules for everyone.

we are leading cookware manufacturer in Nasik, on 20th July we have arranged Conference for our 30 Distributors of all over India. Before Booking We did not check the ambiance of the Hotel therefore, the Hotel & the Conference room were very congested & therefore there was no proper service given by Hotel Staff.

Wrong appointment of Travel Agent. - All the services which are promises to given by the agent were not fulfilled at the time of the conference as he said. Agent Name-Vicky Tours & Travels, Nasik Road

Not so good: fixtures in bathrooms, shower and electrics way too close for comfort. Power cuts randomly. Lack of netting underneath coconut palms around the pool. The hotel entertainment is pretty painful (bring your ipod, the staff will happily let you plug it in, bearing in mind the above of course!)

Really good: Rooms are huge! my friend and I practically had a whole apartment to ourselves. The food is exceptional here, do stay for the veggie buffet if you get chance, it is delicious. The staff are really lovely, they will go right out of their way for you. The pool area is amazing, great clean pool regularly cleaned and looked after.

Just bear in mind, this is Goa, India, you'll get on just fine if you open your mind and have a sense of humour about things.

This is a resort in the prime Candolim area of Goa. 5 minutes walk to the beach and close to Calangute and Baga beaches as well. The resort has a decent swimming pool, with reasonably good food-nothing to rave about, but definitely acceptable-given the reasonable rates that they charge.
The rooms are clean ,airy and fairly large- with both a pool view and garden view, good airconditioning, with televison and a refrigerator. The Campus has the Delfinos supermarket, and you can stock up on beer/Bacardi Breezers et al. Filtered and chilled drinking water is available in the resort, as also ayurvedic massage options(which were again just average).
So, if you are on a budget and looking for a decent place in Goa- this is it..

Room Tip: Get the pool facing ones
