we loved our stay here! although not long enough (3 nights! ) Staff very friendly, food excellent..Hotel room excellent. air con good and good mini bar. lovely gardens and all very clean wondeful hotel.would def return.

5-10 min taxi ride into Calungute. go there for shopping fixed price shops cheaper than buying from girls off the beach although they do have a living to make.

my husband and i have been to candolim 7 times now and are planning another trip this winter. Sonesta inns is the best hotel we have stayed in in goa and we have stayed in a few different ones over the years. you will read some reviews good and bad for hotels in goa, however alot of the bad ones usually seem to be by people who have never been to places like this before. if you want bright white sheets and the smell of bleach go to london or america! the rooms are always as clean as they come in the sonesta and the staff are amazing, they'll do anything for you but please treat them with respect! talk to them, they are lovely. i have watched them smile and bear it when people have clicked their fingers at them and spoken to them like they were a piece of --- and really felt angry for them. if you're not going to be decent then don't go! you're in thier country. Goa is such a beautiful place,the people are wonderful and their is sooooo much to see!!! floydds beach shack just down the garden out of the hotel is brilliant and the people there are fab too! sonesta is right on the beach and in the perfect location! so far sonesta is my no 1!!! go!! it'll be worth it i promise! :)

This was our 5th stay in Goa, we chose the Sonesta Inns this time as the write up in the brochure was good and we wanted a change. The hotel was good, lovely pool setting close to the beach with nice landscaped gardens. However it was very isolated and unless you had your own transport (we had a scooter) there was nowhere to "stroll out to" in the evenings or during the day. No shops and a very small choice of restaurants. Compared to other parts of Candolim it was poor. However if you want a hotel based holiday with a good pool then this is the one for you. Food was good although pricey by Goan standards, cleanliness of hotel was good, however reception staff were on the whole quite surly and unhelpful. I had requested an upper
floor room via email prior to our stay due to a phobia of crawling insects etc. this had been completely ignored and the management were unhelpful in the extreme and this did spoil some of the enjoyment of my holiday as I was reluctant to go onto the balcony alone. We also felt that the British tour operators at the hotel were given the poorer rooms, no one that we knew staying there had been given a room overlooking the pool which were the "choice" rooms.
