I went with my two young kids( 4 y & 8 m ) and wife for a 4 days stay to North 16. I got a fantastic deal for 4 nights which i later extended to 6 nights. The room was just next to the pool. I have read many reviews of people here but fortunately my experience has been largely positive.
The Good: Amazing property, though advertised as a 5 star it can be max a 4 star. The kids room was awsome and fully stocked for young as well as grown up kids with Xbox video games and cartoons on a large projector screen with blocks and all sorts of toys. The pool was good for a lazy afternoon dip with a small pool for kids. THE ROOM: Since this is ex-Swissotel everything is imported and of best quality from Super clean bedhseets to pillows to towels. Since it is situated near the Calangute Cirle , Candolim, Aguda, Calangute, Baga and Anjuna beaches are easily accessible.
Could improve: F&B PRICES. : The prices of all the food Items are in 5 star range though should have been reduced by atleast 40% for inhouse guests to order comfortably. RESTAURANT: its more of a coffee shop which gets really crowded in morning during breakfast. Repeated Breakfast menu day after day. . No Inhouse SPA: For a hotel this standard a SPA is a must . The kids room only opens till 6 PM , this should have been till late. ( Goa wakes up at 10 PM.)
Not so good.: LOCATION: The approach to the hotel is from a shady lane which should be avoided in nights for alone travelers. Though not very far from the main road, There was no Sign or Board with hotel name from the main road.
Will I go again : Definitely . My kids loved the place so did I.
