I had to visit Goa to attend my best friend's wedding and was looking for a hotel close to the wedding venue (Goan Heritage). Read all the reviews on the net and narrowed down on Casa de Goa.
From what I read on the net, I had a set of expectations and they were all met. No surprises and my overall experience was very plesant.
Some great positives
- Rooms were pretty clean and the service was great
- Staff at the reception (Santosh) was very pleasant and helpful. there was a senior member always watching the reception area and were ready to help anytime
- We had hired a car and the watchman and bell boy were super helpful to find us a parking spot as we had to park on the road
- Beach was a stroll away and we really enjoyed it
- we had a pool facing room and my kids enjoyed the most as the child pool was opposite our room.
- the room has a decent varanda for the family to sit and relax the goan susegado way
- the breakfast spread was great and had some south indian varieties like idly and dosas.
- the lunch was decent but took more than 30 mins to serve and had a 25% tax which did not leave a good feeling
Some areas of improvement (reason for 4*)
- Some staff members are very nosy and would not allow you to relax and will keep staring at the guests. Not sure of the names, but some looked unprofessional
- 25% tax and not so great service at the restaurant left a bad taste
- Paid 48K for a 4 day trip - 9K + extra for the child + taxes :(
