“The all inclusive!”
Reviewed May 22, 2009

This is an all-inclusive hotel but does seem to offer great value for your money. Airport transfers, breakfast-lunch-dinner, alcohol, all are inclusive in the room tariff you pay. Only the whiskey brands are not so good and wine is not covered in free alcohol.

Quality of food is decent and is mostly oriented towards western taste. But a fair choice of Indian food is also available. The guests here are mostly from out of India and many come with families. The free meals are served around the pool where they also provide sun beds on first come first served basis. On certain days during the week, free dinner is served in two different restaurants giving the guests a wider choice.

There is also an entertainment program every evening at the poolside eatery. It is just OK so don't expect too much.

The Calangute Beach is about 15 minutes walk away. Overall a nice place for a family trip to Goa.

Stayed here in March 09. Hotel lovely and clean and the rooms very comfortable with cable TV hairdryer, aircon, tea and coffee facilities and mini bar and 2 balconies.
It is only a 5 minute walk from the beach and although not in the centre of Calangute (which is good) is in a perfect location just off the main road.
Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. The breakfast was a little more that the usual Goa tea and toast, you also had a choice of several indian options like potato cakes or veggies savories and a selection of bread rolls and tea, coffee and juice. There was a small charge for eggs etc.
We got a good deal on this trip which was great (£550 each) but I dont know if Id pay the usual price of around 700 each.
All in all, I would recommend it and would go back if the price was right.

On the look of it everythings fine,

But one gets let off at the lobby itself, the rooms have the ugly flat like appearence.

In terms of clealiness too, its not very pleasent, both the rooms as well as its restaurant.

The rooms are without modern amenities like flat screen television, split A/C, the window A/C makes so much of noise that its really difficult to concentrate or sleep.

The electrical fittings are age old and dangerous too.

The only saving grace is the food. Probably its not the resort but goan speciality.

I had visited this hotel for my anniversary. After doing lot of reasearch on hotel location and reviews from various travllers I zoomed in on this hotel.

I was able to get 50% discount on the published fares by directly calling the hotel staff since this was an offseason. This included 3n/4d stays with breakfast/dinner and air port transfer both ways.

The hotel is situated at Calungate and is atleast 15 mins walk to the beach from 1:15 mins from air port.

The staff is very courteous and the hotel arranges for a live orchestra during evenings (depening upon occupancy). We got it for 2 nights. The singers are from Goa so that are good at singing english songs but hindi....emm!

Breakfast and Dinner was buffet. Since 80% of the hotel is occupied with foriegners you would find limited but tasty indian food. The staff was courteous and offered us to order anything from a fixed menu if we did not like something from the buffet.

The rooms are decent with ok furnishings. However the rooms are very spacious and have two balconies and you get a great view of the hotel swimming pool OR the greeney in the hotel. Bathroom is spacious as well but without batch tub.

Once the TV did not work and once we had no hot water. But the hotel was prompt is making alternative arrangements.

For sightseeing negotiate with taxi drivers outside hotel. I bargained for 800rs for north goa tour and 1000rs for south goa tour.

Overall a very good experience.

we stayed for 1 week at the nizmar. staff are all friendly and accommodating. the rooms are very large with A/C free of charge. the rooms a clean and comfortable. location is great, hotel is in the centre of everything. there are bars, shops and restaurants everywhere. the beech is fantastic - just a 10 minute walk away. there sre beech sellers but are really friendly and just want to make a living. if you say no they just leave you alone. but bartering is part of the fun, just remeber you are only batering over no more than a few quid sometimes a few pence.
we ate out every day and night. iwas sometime embarresed paying all of £5 for lunch , beer and water and the sun bed on the beech. we have never been anywhere so cheap.
any thats enough from me.
my advice - Goa is a fantastic country where we will be visiting again very soon.
advice - watch your bar bills at the hotel- they will add a few drinks on if your not careful. pay for each drink rather than a tab. this is only at nizmar hotel. everywhere else is amassing.
enjoy Goa!!

We visited Goa in Jan 2009 for 2 weeks for my wifes birthday.What a brilliant time we had.After reading several reports on the Nizmar we decieded to set down there for our duration, 2 glorious weeks.
Our room was a super deluxe and we thought it was really good,our room boy was great,keeping our fridge topped up whenever we indulged in a few bottles of Kingfisher or Breezer.The T.V was sound too as i was able to watch loads of footie updates.The towels and bed linen were changed every other day and the A/C worked to perfection and it was free(makes a change).
Taxi's are on the doorstep if you require them but we chose the option of mingling with the locals and walking to the busier parts of Candolim and Bagga.
We had several friends who were staying for 3 weeks and they spent most of their afternoons lazing outside Larios shack,these shacks are brill there are so many to choose from that a lot of people find one and visit each day for their stay.Ourselves tried lots of different ones Big Banana and Domino's to name a few.
We visited several other beaches using one of the many taxi's available which worked out about 1400 rp's for a 2 hour return drive with an overnight stay in a beach shack. I recommend this so much as the beaches are a lot less populated.
We didn't spend much of our time eating at the hotel as we like to try different eating houses but what we ate at the Nizmar was quite good.
I know that it impressed us so much that we have booked the same hotel in Jan for 3 weeks.
The initial sights of dust a rubbish strewn all over is soon forgotten when you realise you're in a third world country.Go ahead and experience the Goan way.
We loved it Kev & Alicia from Boro

We have just returned from a 1 week stay in Goa at the Nizmar. It was our first time in Goa and had a lovely relaxing time.

We had 2 adjacent rooms as we were there with our daughters aged 12 and 15. Our elder daughter was not terribly impressed by the hotel and was quite bored, the younger one enjoyed herself.

The rooms are basic but big and clean. The pool area is also clean, the pool chaps cleaned the pool every morning and were helpful moving sunbeds around for you and getting umbrellas if you wanted one. The food at Nizmar was ok - we never had dinner at night preferring to eat out but the children had lunch there most days. My husband and I went to the beach for a couple of hours each day and had lunch at Rosario's shack most days - by far and away the best food we had in Goa - the currys were out of this world.

It was much to hot to do anything so we just lazed around most of the time through the day and went out for dinner each night.

I would recommend this hotel as a cheap and cheerful hotel for a good break. It is not 5 star luxury but it is not bad, you get what you pay for and as I said the rooms are clean and large, clean towels each day and the bar area is quite nice for a couple of drinks at night
