ok hotel wont prefer going back again.

The towels and bedsheets and blanket are not the newest and doesnt look clean enough. No refrigerator and No great view from balcony. Dint understand why it is called beach resort, beach is far away from the place. Swimming pool is small but ok enough to enjoy.

Bathrooms did not have toilet spray and looked just an ordinary bathroom. not up to the mark.

TV and AC quality was good. For room service you have to actually call up a landline number, wasting more money. Restaurant is not tha great and during off season it is closed and you have to go to other places in search of food.

Not advisable to go during rainy season.Lots of noise during rains due to metal roofing made sleep incomplete.

Room Tip: Room 2-3 KM before this resort are much better and worth it!

Stayed for 2 weeks in March. Arrived tired @ 3am & was shown to our room No123 where even 'Mr Rat' was vacating in disgust! Not even sure room No123 is even for paying guests! Complained the next day and was moved. 15th visit to Goa - 1st to Lui Beach with a record breaking 3 room changes with a 4th offered as Peter was honouring these rooms & dates to returning holiday guests - where preferential treatment is given.
Despite this Goa ticks all our boxes for a holiday and a good time was had by all - even though a few more drinks than normal was needed to numb the fore mentioned comments..!

Room Tip: Never ever accept Room No123...!!! It is filthy beyond explanation. Rooms above reception are favour...

We payed 950 Rs/ night for a fan double at the Lui Beach Resort. There was a 25% discount for off season in the price. It's one of the cheapest places around and we thought it was excellent value. The mattress on the bed was definitely the most comfortable we had anywhere in India! The swimming pool is great and we spent loads of time there. Our room was really nice although it was really hot there at the time so the fan room was just bearable. We had two balconies and another window so we could get the breeze through to cool it down a bit. There are no bug nets on the windows though so you can't leave a window open during the night as your room would get full of mosquitoes. The free breakfast is simple with only coffee/ tea, fruit juice, toast with butter and jam. It was enough for us anyway so we were happy with it. Internet connection works well only at the pool and restaurant area which is a bit annoying but most of the time the connection works all right.

My partner and i stayed for 2 weeks in Lui Beach and thought that the staff was lovely and very helpfull.The room wasn't the poshest or most modern but it is a 2 star hotel in a poor country, we wasn't expecting the Ritz, i have payed more for 3 and 4 and have not been much more impressed.The rooms are cleaned daily and they even tidied up my pile of shoes neatly that made me chuckle.
The supprises left on the bed most days was a lovely touch, we always looked forward to seeing what they had created next.
I loved the fact that we wasn't in the middle of the noisey nightlife but was only ever a short walk or cheap taxi ride to it if you wanted.The fact that the hotel only had about 20 rooms made it much friendlier and we was lucky enough to meet lots of nice people.
The only real down side was the breakfast, it was a let down, tea toast and jam, but there was so many lovely places close by to eat it really wasn't a problem and everywhere is very cheap.

Room Tip: Rooms over the pool seem best.

My stay at this place was a total delight! First of all I reached this place at 4 in the morning and they had our room ready, they did not even charge us an extra night for that, which usually all other hotels were doing. Second, the service at this hotel was excellent. The rooms were clean and the staff did interesting towel art on the beds, which we loved. Also, the feel of the hotel is very relaxed, foreigners were just dozing around or reading a book around their little pool.

The only thing that bothered me a little was that the complimentary breakfast included just bread, butter and coffee....eggs were served at an extra charge :( But then it was still worth it at the price we were paying :)

My wife and myself stayed here for two weeks start of april.Nice enough little hotel but a bit far away from the centre of candolim for us.(it may be better during high season when all the bars and restaurants are busier)Rooms cleaned every day and nice little swimming pool if you dont like the beach, but not a lot of sun loungers if everyone wants to stay at the pool.All the staff at the hotel were polite and helpful.I must mention joshuas at the start of the little road into the hotel,The food is delicious and the prices great.Maria and her husband and son joshua were very welcoming when we dropped in for lunch most days.(1 veg thali 1chicken thali and 1large bottle of water =150 rupees)they do not have a licence to sell alchohol.Overall we enjoyed our stay but would have been better if nearer candolim
