Hotel was awesome, Perfect Location, near by General Store, Market for Shopping and Near to Calangute Beach. Hotel was great in all aspects just Little bit of Mosquitoes and Ants. (If you put fan on Slow you can take rid of Mosquitoes and Regarding Ants do not put anything on Kitchen Shelf). I Would rate 4 to 4.5 out of 5.
Hotel's Taxi Service was costly, I Found very cheap Taxi Service by spending some time discussing with Taxi Drivers. You can also contact these Taxi Drivers, Pranay having Santro (09823492286) and Ravi having Dzire (9823883783) both are of same group, both are very decent and nice guys not want to cheat you. I have traveled with Ravi more though, I paid about Rs. 2,000 per day for upto 8-10 hrs for Dudhsagar, North Goa, South Goa, Quite Beach Tour (Arambol, Mandrem and Morjim is a must go).
Caution: Do not ignore this, you must apply Sunscreen on whole body or atleast to the body parts which are under direct sun light to avoid having sun burn or tanning, coz I had it.
Backwater Thrills Tour from GTDC is a waste of time and money, no where its mentioned that it will take you to Tropical Spice Plantation, they wrote they will take you to an island (which is Spice Plantation and nothing else) and cost Rs. 900 per person. Instead you can take Taxi and goto DudhSagar and while returning goto Spice Plantation (will cost you same and save 1 day for you, Food not good for vegetarians, Veg. can avoid going there and save money, although Rs. 400 is not worth this)
In South Goa Tour, Other than Museum and Church nothing much there, if you want you can use that time to spend on Beach instead. Or goto Colva Beach.
All Beaches are almost similar in North Goa having same sea line.
Avoid shopping at Anjuna Beach Wednesday Market, its very costly, you can try at Calangute Market, you will get good price can bargain also and you will get much variety.
