We spent a week in Coconut Grove at the Betalbatim Beach. The resort is lovely maintained and close to the beach. You can walk to Mickey´s restaurant within 10 minutes along the beach. The rooms were nice and with a little balcony. It is worth it´s 3,5 Stars, however, the breakfast is poor, but the omelette is quite nice; you have to check with the reception that there is water in the mini bar of your room.
The main difference between the north and the south of Goa is traffic. The beach in the south is quite, however there is just a very little nightlife as well. You have to take a taxi to get from one place to the other. The north is the extreme opposite. The beach is busy, and the nightlife is exiting and everything is within walking distance. Not quite at all; so make your choice.

just got back from coconut grove after a 2 week stay.. we liked it that much we have already booked it again for 3 weeks next january..
The rooms are lovely nice and clean, we got a top floor sunveiw, couldnt of got a better room. the gardens are well kept and very pretty.
The breakfast was good and variable, sometimes the waiters get a bit laid back but that's Goa !!
It is very close to the beach ( just up a sandy path and over the sand dunes), where there is many shacks waiting to serve you, you can lie on their sunbeds as long as you eat and drink there. dont expect you to eat a lot as long as you have something,, we used 'Baggies'for the first week then moved onto 'Silent Nook' for the second week as we got a bit bored with Baggies lunch menu., But there is about 8 different shacks along this side of the beach.. You can take a 10 minute stroll down the right hand side of the beach to Majorda and approx 15 minute stroll to the left hand side to Colva..
Alberts shack more inland is a good eating place it is overlooking the lake..and there is plenty of eating places in colva and majorda, the taxi's are outside the hotel gates and the cost is 400 rupees return which includes 2 hours waiting time!
The only fault i could find with this hotel is the price of the drinks at the bar, there is a happy hour from 5 till 8 where theres 15% discount but even thsi makes the drinks expensive after the luxury tax is on.. and after 8pm they work out double the price of the outside shacks and restaurants.. Which is a shame cause it's such a nice setting to sit and chill with a drink,, we did this a few nights then used the Alagoa hotel just outside the main gates, as our chill out bar...but would of like a drink in the hotel grounds..(just bugs you the price)..
Anyone thinking of going go as we was aprehensive as first due to going to another area of Goa for many years, but we loved it and we are back next year.... !!

We travelled out on 21st Jan 11 and came back on 5th Feb 11.

Good points are:

1) Hotel close to the beach
2) Minibar in room with mineral water and soft drinks (replaced daily)
3) Pleasant balcony overlooking attractive gardens
4) Polite and friendly staff
5) Clean room
6) Aircon
7) Breakfast served until 10.30 am
8) Satalite TV in room
9) Good tailor at hotel

Bad points:

1) Very tired bathroom - very old cracked bath
2) No proper drinks/snack service when lazing around pool area (unlike other hotels in which we have stayed)
3) Cannot use phone in room to make local, national nor international calls (have to use phone at reception).
4) Pool too small and seemed rather dirty
5) Annoying western pop music played during day (we would like to have heard Indian music instead)
6) Main meals at hotel not very good (particularly western-style food - very very poor) and a lot more expensive than shack restaurants on beach (just be careful in shacks though as hygiene looks a bit dodgy....)
7) Although it says check-out time in guide in room as 12 noon, the hotel insists that it is 11 am.
8) Safes for valuables only in some rooms

General points:

Another piece of advice is to take pounds sterling and change it with Hamish who you will encounter on the path to the beach. He was giving 72 rupees to the pound, the hotel was only between 68 to 69/pound.

If you have never been to Goa before, the airport procedure on the way out is a nightmare. They checked our passport 8 times for some reason. Also when at the check-in desk, some dodgy guy was leaning on cases (increasing the weight) and asking some people to put their hand luggage on as well, then adding the weight up and charging excess baggage, which was a nothing more than a complete scam!

Three out of the four of our party ended up with severe diarrhoea and sickness so be really careful with what you eat. I would even avoid boiled rice in shack restaurants in addition to salads, cream or mayonnaise, cold meats or cheese etc....... Piping hot freshly prepared food is fine!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in Jan 2011. It is in a great location near beach although difficult to travel beyond unless you use the taxi cartel outside the hotel which is expensive. The drivers don't let any other taxi near the place.

The main downside to the Hotel is loud disco music from the bar near the swimming pool. Also there was a private party one night until 2am which kept us all awake. If you do stay here and like things quite then stay near reception rather than the swimming pool.

Reception staff very helpful and friendly but breakfast restaurant staff are very slow, inefficient and not very friendly. I think they were fed up with the Russians who are often rude and pushy. Unfortunately Salcette is now swarming with Russians and they outnumber all other tourists. Probably best choice of hotel in Betalbatim. We have stayed in the Nanu in the past (wouldn't recommend it). Also Alagoa- which is eccentric but does have great views over paddy fields and does not have loud music late at night.
