We had an excellent stay at Lui Beach Resort. Given that it falls in the range of budget hotels, it was great value for money and had excellent service.

- The resort is a basic budget hotel with clean rooms and a small clean pool.

- The staff is as good as could be - including all the managers, housekeeping, security guards and all others. They make you feel so much at home! They do not disturb you and let you be to yourself and yet take care of you in every possible way.

We were a group of 5 and 2 of us (with a toddler) arrived at 3 AM in the night. While the checking time is officially around 11 AM in the morning, they immediately gave us a room at 3 AM in the night and did not even ask for any extra charges.

They were very considerate at checkout too. The manager voluntarily said to us that although the checkout time is 12 noon, but we were most welcome to stay longer as we had a toddler in the group. I cannot thank them enough for their thoughtfulness.

- Its very close to the Candolim beach, just about a 2 mins walk

The best thing is that for anyone looking for long stays, this is a very homely and cosy little hotel which wont pinch your pockets.


Other Points:

- You might want to ask for a pool facing room as other rooms do not have any view.

- For food it is better to try out the multitude of shacks and restaurants near the resort.


I would love to come back to Lui for longer stays, and can recommend it any time!

Room Tip: Pool Facing Rooms are most recommended

This was our first trip to Goa and the Lui Beach hotel lived up to our expectaions. Yes, it's a little run down and could so with a face lift but we loved it. Our room was large and though we didn't have air- con, we managed with the ceiling fan. The room was cleaned and also clean sheets and towels changed every day.The hotel is situated in the quiet area of Candolim and away from the main road. The pool was a godsend when the sea was rough, it was cleaned every day and towels provided.
The bech is only a short stroll away with some good beach bars, Palm and Sands was our favorite. There are some fantastic restaurants nearby, we had several meals in Shivas. The little ice cream/juice bar at the end of the road sells a yummy Knickerbocker Glory. We ate at the Stonehouse and the Curry House and aslo further up the strip. I have to mention the Full Moon, opposite La Orange, I had the best prawn piri I have ever tasted.
The staff, from the management to the night guard, at the hotel were excellent and couldn't do enough for us.
We are booked for next year and look forward seeing some of the lovely people we met.

The Lou beach is a very good small hotel, staff are excelent. everything you need swimming pool, bar, close too beach. it is at the end of candolim so it is quiet, but lots going on round some fantastic places to eat as in Goa nothing is expensive. The bus stops at end of wee lane and costs 5 rupees to go to Calengute it is always empty as the end of the line is 2 stops further one, coming back in a tu tu is fantastic...A/c and Fridges are extra, but all rooms have good fans and are very clean. The karioki nights are brill and food very good i always got Prawn Curry so yummie and a great laugh. One of the best place to stay, safe, clean, great staff, good food, yes a bit away from Calengute - Bagga...either 10 ruppes on bus to bagga or a few hundred in tu tu or taxi....we loved going in but coming back was lovely....you can get safe deposit box for your bits if so take a wee lock with you i got one from Poundland perfect...

Just booked again to go back to what has become our best holiday ever! First time for us in November and we stumbled across Lui Beach, what a lovely place and the cheapest on Monarch website. The staff are wonderful and would do anything for you. Yes the accommodation is basic and you pay for a fridge, air con and safe deposit but you are paying for a 2 star hotel which in my view should be higher. The room are kept spotless and you will have lovely displays on your bed, clean towels and bedding everyday and you are given towels round the pool. Breakfast is tea or coffee and toast and there is always somewhere to sit. Pool is kept immaculate and u are 5 mins from the beach which is where we went everyday. Ignore the bad reviews Peter, Uju and Gaurish will all look after you and tipping goes a long way here guys this is a poor country. Can't understand how people are moaning about the rooms I've paid a lot more and never had clean towels everyday, I simply left a small tip which the guys really appreciate, yes it is at the quiet end but get in a tuk tuk or taxi for a pound and go further down if you want noisy bars.

As I said I've just booked again and I cannot wait to see the place again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room above the reception at the back it was big and had everything we needed.

Firstly, this is India, so unless you spend loads of money to stay at the Taj, forget any ideas of European hotels and grading. This hotel is clean and has a great atmosphere. The owner and his family are friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic which is typical of these hotels, but are clean and cleaned every day, so unless you are spending your holiday in your room are perfectly adequate!
