“Great place!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was my family's first trip to Goa. We loved the hospitality here. The suite was very nice with a sunrise view. The staff is very friendly. We had complete privacy.
The pool is also good in size and depth to enjoy a lazy afternoon.
As far as the locations is concerned, it is nearer to Candolim beach than Calangute beach. It is just 5 min walking distance to Candolim beach (though the address is Calangute). For those who love quieter beaches, Candolim is all time better than Calangute or Bauga. So the hotel is great choice to chill at Candolim beach and to enjoy markets, water sports at Calangute and Bauga which is also in the proximity.

Room Tip: Generally people choose the suites facing the poolside. But the rear side suites are nicer and priva...

Goa it is and here I am back to OPG to enjoy it's amazing hospitality and friendly ambience and yummiest Restaurant food (@ Nautilus) !! Well this time it was my Wedding!! Goes without saying that all the arrangements we asked for were so well done and my Wedding function really turned out to be a memorable one. All my guests were extremely satisfied with the wedding arrangements and the food especially. I may use the word delighted actually and not satisfied since the Hotel staff delivered beyond each one's expectations!! I had a lovely ceremony at the hotel poolside with an amazing Gala Dinner layout which tasted as good as it looked!! The Live music, Karaoke, candle lit tables and the complete ambience was just so perfect!! A perfect venue to have your wedding because at times it is just not the venue but the people and it's hospitality that needs to be equally good for a wedding....so what better than OPG!! Thanks OPG for making my Wedding Occasion the most memorable event of my life!! Thanks Team OPG for all your wonderful arrangements and hospitality!!

Good and cozy environment with neat and clean swimming pool,kids pool and good restaurant service makes it a lovely relaxing place.the packaged breakfast consists of a variety of day to day menu which one may have without any restriction as one may have as many as he likes ,equally served with smile from the staff.they try to use inhouse rendition of music n songs by local artists in restaurant hall while in dinner time,but without zeal and not lively,surely to be marked up by mgmt if they want to continue.rooms are spacious with double balconies.the only thing devoid is,refrigerator being empty which may be well stacked with cold drinks and some ports and beer as it is only in contrast to unlimited breakfast offered.A good place to stay

Our stay at ocean palms was nice with the rooms having heaps of space that we didn't even need! The pool is nice, they have an outdoor restaurant and good breakfast service. There is only wifi in the lobby with wifi in rooms as an extra cost.

Everything you need in a hotel for a great time in Goa- not far from beach, market, Shacks and yet in a quiet location so that when you hit the sack- no noises.
Fine linen, cleanliness all around, friendly staff, good breakfast. Spotless, functional bath. Economical too!

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in December 2012. Staff at this hotel are really good. The only down point is pool, not cleaned everyday and no evening entertainments, hotel is dead in the evenings. Manager Sheetal is brilliant! Will do anything for you. Well done Sheetal and your team.

Dear Madam/Sir,

Namaste.

Thank you for your valuable comments on TripAdvisor.

Although we are glad you appreciated our associates services and our Resort, we are surprised you were not aware of our in-house entertainment i.e. Serenaders 5 times weekly at our Multicuisine Restaurant commencing 2000 hours to 2300 hours . This is also advertised in-house in our Lifts as well as on our Notice Boards at the entrances of each Building block.

We have an automatic filteration pumps for the swimming pool as well as suction sweeping is done at 0620 hours each day manually and pool PH and Chlorine levels recorded as a Standard Operating Procedure seven times during the course of the day.

This is done so as to not discourage people from swimming during guest usage hours i.e. 0730 hours - 1930 hours.

We hope to be of Service to you again .

Warm Regards,

Anil Singh Rathore.
