Stayed from 8th to 12th Jan, with family. Though agoda wrongly booked 3, we were 4 and while agoda went in loop to correct n reply, Jimmy was warm n prompt to extend welcome, no extra charges for 2nd child, not even for breakfast.
Jimmy & Heidi are a warm n hardworking couple giving in their very best to this enterprise. And when owner is working results are what they are.
Location is not prime view, but in center n close to both beaches (baga & calangute) at about 5-7 mts walking distance, very close to market. Spotless clean room n toilets, in fact it was first hotel where even we of our own kept shoes outside the room though not accustomed to move without shoes, as all others were doing, though not asked for, great job Heidi, your hard work.
We only had Breakfast at hotel being out rest of the day. Breakfast time for us was not a hotel experience, but a warm hospitality experience that was unique, we all had different options, shared and all variety was excellent and sufficient. Warmth extended at breakfast was more valuable, it was like being with someone your own, great job ! Don't remember any other hotel charging me lesser than consumed and though i pointed and would surely pay, lady was reluctant and didn't charge.
Talking to both of them felt very nice, and we would surely treasure this experience and recommend very strongly.
You do have better options in terms of sheer size, view, location, facilities ....... but try to find owners doing actively all jobs to deliver happiness and great staying experience.
In terms of warmth,hospitality and honesty i would not even compare them with anybody else at least at this location. We wish them the very best and are sure they will earn respect for good work they do.
