Ondas do Mar Beach Resort

Reviewed November 8, 2012

We were not at all satisfied. Do not believe the photos they published. It looks good only in photos. But reality is different. Just spend a little bit more and select another good hotel. Hotel staff behavior was very good. We have not taken food from their restaurant. Beach is 300 meter away. Nothing much to enjoy in this beach. Calangute beach is 2 km away. The reception and our rooms were far apart. We had to cross the road and a walk a 200 meter along to reach our room. Property is not maintained properly. We were welcomed by some rain worms near the room. We selected standard AC room. AC is window type. So the noise was too too much. Bathroom was clean. But the taps were not working properly. Both the water tap and shower were working together because of some faults. Phone was not working and some how the receptionist convinced me. Pool is very small and surroundings doesn't look good. Overall you wont feel like you are in a beach resort. So escape...!!!

Room Tip: Standard AC is not good.

Had a memorable stay in this hotel. Good modern resort. Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. Food is good. Rooms are neat, spacious and well maintained. Felt like staying in own house. Very near to the beach, only five minutes walk. The beach near the hotel is very quite & lovely but here also the water sports facilities are available. (Hotel is located near the lovely sea beach which is around 1 km away from the very busy Calangute beach). Overall, great facility offered at a very reasonable price. It is Worth staying there for days at a time. I stayed there for three nights & four days. Really an excellent place to stay.

Stayed: November 2011, traveled with family

The place to be in North Goa. Just a 5 minute walk from the beach this is a wonderful place to check in. The hotel is well maintained and offers the traveller a lovely room to relax and unwind after a hard day's fun and frolic on the sandy beaches of Calangute/Baga. Run by some great people Mr.& Mrs Fernandes this is the place you would like to come again and again. There are 2 properties. Although both are great remember to choose one on holiday street as the beach is closer. There are some lovely eating joints and of course the famour shacks for the traveller as well. In fact we even got a 20% discount in some shack( Jolly jack I guess) since we were staying in Ondas Do Mar.

The good: Friendly staff, good service, clean rooms. The not-so-good: Breakfast is very ordinary, just enough to keep you going till you hit some good English B'fast :) The swimming pool was closed for 2 out of 3 days of our stay, and didn't particularly look clean

Though the place is not as swanky as it appears in the pictures, it is a good value-for-money place. The staff is friendly and accommodating, they let us keep our bags in the resort on the last day even though we checked out of the room, and even opened up an empty room for us to freshen up :)

Room Tip: Tell them to give you a Deluxe Room (Phase II)

this resort is totally Value for Money resort, its very simply furnished studio apartment type , but i loved to stay here with my family & friends. it has a nice food quality . Breakfast was so-so, swimming pool is ok. Dont expect star category facilities from this resort. It is located near the beach, that is the main advantage, u can go by walking. its a true value formoney package.

Room Tip: take standard rooms near the swimming pool
