We had to stay in Mandovi at short notice from 1st Jan 2013 and compared to the stress of Candolim, it was a haven. Food amazing, very clean - we paid extra for deluxe river views and definitely worth it. Negative - we experienced sexual harassment by male staff in pattiserie on ground floor on a number of occasions when simply making our way to reception which was distressing. As 3 women travelling it was very important that we felt safe but this compromised our stay. To their benefit, when we reported this to reception, they did take our concerns seriously. Breakfast was stressful - supposed to be self-service but couldn't get near the buffet for staff 'eager to help'. Positive - best thing about hotel was the High Tide bar. The senior bar manager was polite, attentive but not overly so and left us in peace when we wanted it but was always nearby when we needed him. Without doubt, he was a joy and made our stay so enjoyable. Overall, good service, very clean, good location, excellent food. Need to sort out some male staff's inappropriate behaviour.
