Although this hotel was ok I would not class it as 5*. We upgraded to the Diwa Wing for our stay and our room was spacious, had a very large bed which was extremely comfortable. The lighting in the room was poor especially when trying to make up on an evening. Air conditioning was good except when the cleaner takes out the card that controls the electric which we asked him not too but this fell on deaf ears!! The cleanliness was not up to standard in my opinion for example we had a stain on the side of our bath which was there the whole fortnight, I thought at first it was a permanent mark but upon rubbing it we realised it could easily have been removed. Our bedding was only changed once. If we were lucky we would get complimentary water, fruit and daily newspaper but it must be the luck of the draw as some days we were in favour and some not. The area where the hotel is situated is not that good there are hardly any places to eat we ate most nights at fish-ka opposite the hotel entrance the food is good in there but a little too spicy. We had to get a shuttle to the beach which was about a 10 minute walk otherwise down a track surrounded by paddy fields, in my opinion the beach could be a lot cleaner and I am surprised that seen as tourism is huge in Goa you would expect the beaches to be better. Although this review sounds bad we did have a lovely holiday but that was mainly down to the company we were with, 14 of us altogether great friends great company.
