I have been staying in Mandovi for last few years because of its location and ease to access from anywhere. A drawback is that they do not provide even basic ameneties for drivers if you are driving into Goa. However, close to the hotel there are some facilities like cheap rooms, dormatories etc which could be used by drivers of your cars.
The hotel is pretty old style, but rooms are OK. Food is very good. Being a vegetarian, I like the dal too much. Even my non-vegetarian friends prefer to eat in the Mandovi. They maintain the old Goan culture in serving and the food. The goan curries are genuine.
After the work or site seeing, you would enjoy to have a stroll along the Mandovi river or some window shopping in the market, both are actually in front and behind the hotel.
