“great rooms and great rooftop pool”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

roof top pool is amazing, nobody seemed to use it apart from us while we were there. Rooms were very large, clean and comfortable. Service was great by 95% of staff who were very helpful and attentive. The manager did spend a morning shouting down the phone at somebody and his staff while we were having breakfast, so I do understand other peoples reviews. BUT that can not be said for the rest of the staff who were fantastic. Get a good rate and it's worth it.

We stayed at this hotel as we saw good reviews on Trip Advisor. We believed the hotel was next to the beach as there was a photograph of the beach on the web site. The beach is a 5 - 7 minute walk down a dodgy road. The rooms were very basic and although we requested a baby cot they were unable to provide one. We asked for a refund but they said they were unable to do this as we wanted a hotel that could provide a safe sleeping place for our 14 month old son. Their website is very misleading and I did not believe it showed a true refection of the hotel. We also requested a non smoking room but was given a smoking room. However they did change us once we complained. Some of the male staff were friendly and there is an exceptional chef that made amazing tandoori chicken and spicy salad. The roof top pool was nice and we barely saw any customers when we went for a swim. However, we had to ring reception and go downstairs several times to get served for drinks. After we booked our hotel room (we stayed for around 6 nights) we noticed that we were charged $240 for Saturday night and around $68 every other night. We didnt realise this until after we had paid. We could have stayed at an amazing 5 star hotel at this cost. The lift was very small and dodgy so when a power cut happened I believe that you would have got stuck in it until the power turned on so we refused to take the lift and walked to the third level which our hotel room was on (with our baby).

Hi Everyone,
we stayed here for 2N,
Its a 3 Star hotel but the service was bad. Reception person(a bit health dark men) behavior was very unlike, so before entering to the room we faced the worst. We asked the reception person for bike available for rent, he called a person which was already fixed with him, bike was not in a good condition and very old so we asked him for other bike but no other bike was available renter said. So, we asked reception person to give us some other contact he rudely said no. Then we complained to the booking department. Thanks to Room booking department, they arrange the bike renter.

Room Tip: Take Left side room as balcony view of road and look better, and choose 2nd floor to better view but...

Good hotel at an affordable price. Rooms are big, clean and neat. The staff and service is good overall. However, the manager at the time of our check-in wasn't very service oriented and took his own sweet time to hand over the room keys to us even though we had a prior confirmation from the hotel.
Other than that the stay was comfortable. The hotel is also in close proximity to Curlies, German Bakery, Anjuna Flea market and Anjuna beach which sweetens the deal.

Honestly I expected more after being carried of by pics.
Staff needs a bit more training.
Though they were very helpful and kind.
Food (breakfast) was good , more on Indian side.
Location : Very nice. you have close proximity to anjuna beach.
Well we hired scooty so none of the beach was far.
Scooty was arranged by hotel staff without adding their commission (Loved this gesture).

POOL - Super cool , best part generally people dont come at roof top , so u get total privacy
Rooms - large with nice balcony
Morning breakfast has a nice touch of soothing breeze that flows in the open restaurant.
Recommendation : 8/10

Room Tip: Choose room which are away from road. has more of privacy

I found this hotel after a lot of search for a hotel with nice rooms at affordable price and I am quite happy with my 3 day stay at this place. Rooms are quite nice, spacious, luxurious with private sit out. Room service was very good with courteous staff. Swimming pool on the roof with a bar was also quite nice. Location of the hotel with walkable distance to curlies shack and Anjuna beach was an added comfort. Overall, best place to stay in Goa at affordable price. I would highly recommend this hotel.
