Having read some reviews of this hotel, myself and my husband arrived for our honeymoon with mixed feeings. After a fantastic flight with first choice, and a great transfer from the airport (2 hrs after landing at Dabolim we were in resort) we arrived and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were in one of the older rooms and though loking a little tired it was clean and a great size, the only problem being, we had been given a room with twin beds(not a great start to a honeymoon). We asked at reception if we could be moved and they did it immediatley and when they found out it was our honeymoon even gave us a bottle of champagne and a basket of fruit. The food choice was excellent and varied, even if you didn't like Indian food(which we both love). The pool area was kept clean and there was never a problem with getting a sun lounger. The only time we had a problem around the pool and in getting a table for dinner was when a group of Indian businessmen were having a conference at the hotel and they seemed to take over everything, but the staff tried to sort out any problems quickly. We would definitley recommend this hotel to others and are already thinking of going back again next April for our first anniversary.

The Goan people are so friendly and helpfull that they make the holiday. The hotel was adequate and the staff superb, they cannot do enough to help you enjoy your holiday. Try Ganesh's shack on the beach great value the lobster is wonderful. I read reviews on this site before i went on holiday and must admit that i was dubious about the hotel and the food but the food was terific the hotel was great and the people are wonderful weather was hot and sunny, What more can you ask for from a holiday destination.

Had heard mixed reviews before arrival.Our first room was a standard-but needed updating.Mould on walls,tired furnishings and there was no water the first night.We complained to Thomson rep and were moved to a deluxe room.The food was great,and the staff so very helpful.Had agreat time! Do dine out,our faves were Ganesh's Shack on beach.For my birthday he organised,lobster dinner,fireworks on beach,and a lovely cake.Spice Garden do the best steaks in Candolim! Do the trips through a taxi,not the rep.Or with Johns Boat Trips.Would go back to WP.

Journey from the airport to the hotel certainly opens your eyes to life in Goa - it's kind of interesting in a wierd way, or maybe that was just got off a 10hour flight?

Hotel is pretty basic although everything is clean, bright and well maintained, sheets changed daily. The only thing you have to get used to is that everything takes forever, the Goans are so laid back it's unreal. However within a couple of days of being there you become just as laid back as them!!

Places worth visiting are;

The Indian retreat - fabtastic trip spending 2 days with an elephant
Turtle Beach - do it by taxi its cheaper and more entertaining that the tour coach
Coco Beach - worth seeing, bit busier than turtle beach but still nice
Spice farm - very interesting fantastic food!

By the way the small vessel on the beach at Candolim is HUGE!!

All in all a very good holiday. Would we go back? Maybe one day, theres so much m ore of the world to see beforehand!

Enjoy!!!

PS - Make sure you drink loads of water, if you get the trots it's not the food its dehydration.
