This was our third time in Candolim but our first time at the Whispering Palms but we already knew how good the hotel was from a previous visit. We enjoyed first class customer service throughout our stay from all the staff. The food was varied and of a high standard, the breakfast omolettes were particularly good. Evening entertainment was also good compared with other hotels. During our stay we were offered a short stay in south Goa at the Donna Silvia. The resort is a lot quieter than Candolim and the hotel is larger. Comparing the two overall I would have to rate the Whispering Palms higher. Speaking to many other guests I found that many were frequent visitors which is a good endoresment for the hotel.
The only negative thing I could say is the cost and hassle of the visas and also the never ending queing at the airport but this should hopefully improve next year when the new terminal finally opens.

Room Tip: All romoms are of a high standard. It depends what you are looking for but our room was on the groun...

We stayed here in January and overall the hotel was good.

We were moved down to their South Goa hotel for 2 days after complaining of the noisey reception (our room was right next to it) then upon our return we were put into a nicer room away from the main hotel.The one thing that I would put me off returning was the fact they only provide hot water for showers from 7am-10am then again from 6pm-10pm, let's face it if you're on holiday in the scorching heat and are paying to stay there you would expect to shower as often as you like.

We returned from our 4th annual holiday at Whispering Palms just under 2 weeks ago. We arrived before 4 am and we were asked to relax in the pool room in comfy chairs. Not long after, we were booked in and shown to the room we had asked for. We were showered and unpacked by 6am. (never had a problem with hot water.I believe it's not heated overnight, but it was hot at 5am). Following the refurbishment, it is one of the best, if not the best hotel in Candolim now. After 4 years of the same entertainment, however, it needs to be revamped a bit. Having said that, the weekly Gala nights are great They had a Bollywood night where we all got dressed up (Debbie in the lane sells or hires saris) and my husband was "Mr Bollywood"! Indian shirt, white shorts, sunglasses and an arrogant look did the trick! He's yet to try his Feni prize. The food was better than ever. Loads of starters, 2 soups and there was always European dishes (usually British) as well as Goan/Indian dishes, followed by an array of desserts. There was always a couple of chefs outside at the grill cooking to order. If you don't like anything at any meal time, ask the kitchen for whatever you want and they will try and accommodate you.
It is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed at. Everybody chats to everyone, regardless of age or nationality, however, if you want to keep yourself to yourself, that fine. The pool bar is a so much better than the tiny one before, but the real bonus for us was the upstairs sundeck. The pool area can get very hot, but there's usually a bit of a breeze on the deck and you can either watch the outside world in the lane at the back, or just overlook the pool and hotel. It's so handy for the beach and shacks as well as the main road with loads of restaurants and bars. We were a little daunted when we read all the stories of illness in the hotel before we arrived, but in 5 weeks, we were fine as was everyone else. We have already provisionally booked our room directly with the hotel for next year and will confirm our booking as soon a Qatar releases the dates for our return flight. Thanks to Jacob John, Lena and all the staff. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Room Tip: I think we will keep quiet about our favourite room!!

We spend extra time at this hotel. We had such great time at the dinner serving. The guy playing live music was great and the food was excellent. The staff, waiters were all so friendly. The room was good and clean always. the tour arranged by the hotel was also very good and our driver was very knowledgeable about the area.
