I stayed at this property in March, 2013 and had a great time. It was my first time visiting India, so in general things were very different (electricity going on and off, no AC, animals around, etc.) but I felt completely comfortable, safe and welcome at this hotel. Food was very good, and we had lots of fun hanging out in the cafe near the pool with a beer...or two!

This place charges 22%VAT on Alcohol & 12.5% on Food. This is in addition to the rates on the menu which are similar to Souza Lobo. I went with my wife to Souza Lobo last night a pint of beer was Rs60/- inclusive of all taxes. Here the menu price is Rs60/- for a beer plus 22% VAT.
I booked via Makemytrip last year & this time as well. I was very surprised at the VAT charges. Last time we ate all the time in this hotel. This time we would have to go out all the time. Dont think I will come again.

we were alloted a room in old bolck of the hotel which is few minutes away from main building, but it has its own pool, very quite and relaxing. we as a couple were looking for a break from this busy schedule, away from noise and crowd....so this was perfect for us. regarding room, dnt expect much....big room with old furniture, old bed, small kitchenette, small fridge and a small balcony. I didn't liked the bed and matresses. Though i liked the small balcony of our room. this hotel is just 10 mins walking distance from main calangute beach. conclusion is that when i'll be in Goa next time....I'll surely try some other hotel.

Had stayed here previously on 2 occasions , we had a plan to go back in August this year along with 4 other families. The experience I had during the reservation process was a nightmare to say the least, after following up with the owner of the property and the reception more than about 20 times , they finally gave me a confirmation charging me way higher than online prices available (child above 5 yrs is considered adult , the lady said!) Finally when I did make an online booking but they called back & told me that it is cancelled since "there is a renovation of rooms at the hotel during this period!!!"......no prizes for guessing who was responsible for this cancellation. After this bad experience , I now feel it's a highly over rated place , only advantage being close to the Calangute beach.
Shocked at this complete disregard for regular clients (so much for the famed Goan hospitality).......neither will I consider this place again nor recommend to anyone

The location of this hotel is excellent, just 2 minutes walking distance from famous Calangute beach. But everything else is just average. The rooms are kind of OK. The restaurant doesn't have many choices specially for north indian's and prices are on higher side with no quality. Even the service is not up to the mark. There were only 3-4 persons taking care of everything, from kitchen to room cleaning & everything else. All in all not a very good experience.
