“Basic but brilliant”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

This was my 2nd time in goa but 1st to the Horizon.My boyfriend has been 8 times but this was also his 1st visit to the Horizon.We thought the hotel was basic,with hard mattrasses,but brilliant staff.The sheets and towels were changed every day.With towel art left on the bed,it made us smile when we went to our room.The pool area was good and we enjoyed our daily swim.The food in the hotel was nice,ample breakfast,eggs,toast,bean,sausage,porridge,cereal,varied during the week but always eggs,with one or two items above.We found it noisey on a morning with the cleaners starting early,sweeping around the pool and moving sunbeds,dogs barking,and people slamming doors.The lack of black out curtains made us wake up early anyway,but you dont go on holiday to stay in bed all day.Our time at the Horizon was enjoyable and would stay again,infact we are looking at going back in november.

Room Tip: Pool view 1st or 2nd floor as no lifts so wouldnt want higher.

Our first visit 12 Feb-6 March 2014 to the Horizon Hotel. We will definitely stay there again.All the staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.The rooms are very clean and towels are changed every day.Room service( Sandesh K ) was top class. Breakfast very good,eggs, toast, cereals,fruit, sausages, and teapots if you request one.Situated off the main road
And away from the traffic noise where taxis are always available at competitive prices. Look out for Sagun who is very helpful and courteous.always ready to advise you on possible destinations.Restaurant is a very good standard with delicious food, Live music three times a week.All in all, a really nice hotel, making our first visit to Go a very enjoyable one.

Pros: dated but clean hotel; fantastic staff; basic but adequate breakfast; food and bar prices very reasonable.
Cons: Full of Russians!!!!!!!!!!!
Our first trip to Goa. Hotel was part of a package holiday which is a rarity for us. The room was perfectly adequate and was kept immaculately clean. The staff were the absolute best.
As for the Russians - well the only apt description is "the bowels of mankind"!!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool, above reception are actually suites. The noise from evening entertainmen...

We stayed at the Horizon Hotel between 14th February and 28th February. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would go back there again. All the staff (reception-Manoj and Sacchin), waiters (Saroj, Joseph, Sharjahan, Krishna and Raviraj), cleaner (Dilip) and the Chef (Brian) were all excellent and went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. The staff were always friendly, very polite and helpful. There was entertainment three times weekly (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). Our room was cleaned daily. Wi-fi is also available at a very small cost.

This was our second visit to Horizon ,just as good as the first. The staff always polite and helpful, rooms cleaned everyday with clean towels .On arrival we were greeted with welcome back flowers. I celebrated my 65th b/day whilst there , we came back to our room to find flowers , a b/day cake and towels made into a b/day cake complete with a candle. In our opinion The Horizon is excellent value for money and possibly the best 3star in Calangute. Will certainly be returning next year. Peter and Brenda Bainbridge….
