“Good Rooms , Polite Staff but limited F&B”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

We stayed in a suite at the hotel and it was well appointed and had plenty of space.The bathrooms were large but a little unconfortable since you didnt have a seperate shower available and had to use the tub.The swimming pool was larger than a few other hotels but could have been bigger since it seemed somewhat tiny tucked away in a corner.The Food and beverage was fairly limited with not much variety at breakfast.You almost wondered why you paid for room and breakfast instead of just taking a room only rate.Not a bad place to stay if you arn't too keen to sit out by the pool and you arn't going to have breakfast at the hotel.

the hotel stay was great. Rooms were neat and tidy staff were polite and accurate and guide you better in case you havent had a plan to start up in Goa.

The best part of it is the food, got to taste some food and great cook by the chef.
The hotel has a small guide book sort of a thing which will let us know the weeks happennings in and around calangute area very helpful sort of a magazine do ask for it at the reception.
But book these rooms through cleartrip or any other such cause direct booking costs u more....

Room Tip: deluxe was good in case u need extra living and a bath tub choose suite

We stayed there couple of days back. We booked this hotel online. its certainly not worth the money which you pay. The pics shown in the website is misleading. The rooms are as normal as you get anywhere else.

The first impression was bad as the girl at the reception was unfriendly and a bit rude. The second impression was bad too, when we entered the room and realized that it's not as good as was shown in photos on the hotel's website.

Location of Hotel is good. It's near the Calangute beach.Room service and Restaurant were okay. Swimming pool is really small.

Don't rent bike from the guy (Chotu Mechanic) opposite to hotel. He demands extra money when you return bike!!

Had booked this so called the best suite of the Hotel for my 1st Anniversary for 3 nights, 3 months in advance.Points to take note off when you book this hotel for your stay:
1) The rooms don't have basic facilities like tea/coffee maker.
2) The hotel supplies poor quality toiletries, so kindly carry your soap and shampoo with you.
3) Please don't try the Goan cuisine in the hotel, its below average.I was given an explanation that the cook was on leave so the quality was not good.
4) There is no early check in, so please reach on time only, else you will have to wait.

Had a terrible time sleeping in the bedroom after the entire day at the beach shacks.All the three nights I was just seeing the water dripping from the AC and hearing funny noises from the unit, and no cooling at all.Had to get up in the midnight to wipe the floor besides the bed, as there was a mini pool.Complaining at the reception was of no use, as I got the answer" the technicians have serviced the AC and now all seems ok". This happened twice in my stay, but the AC was never working.Practically all the 3 nights I had a terrible time.Finally on the day of check-out I had to ask the person of the management to come and see the room condition, as the hotel staff was not taking a note of the mess created by the dripping AC. Got inadequate relief in my bills due to this inconvenience caused to me from the management, who earlier were forcing me to pay my entire dues.

Apart from the AC issue and the absence of the basic facilities in the room, this hotel is an "OK" mainly due to close proximity to the beach.

Room Tip: Depends on your luck....
