Reviewed May 19, 2011

My stay was ok. I first arrived and they were going to give a type of hut which I did not make reservations for. The next room was way in the back where it was very dirty. As soon as I opened the bathroom door to check it out I saw it full of mosquitos, the last room was average. Staff was friendly though.

Access:
As the Hotel Name suggests it’s a beach Property...and it does not disappoint there, the hotel has a private access to the private beach, also the hotels own beach shack is located at the beach where you can sit and take in the sun and the sand. Surprisingly this part of the beach is not crowded at all and is the best for Honeymooners; also there are no hawkers on this part of the beach, so you won’t be bothered here at all. The beach is clean and well maintained. Also the private access road is beautiful covered with flowers and beach huts. We had inclusive breakfast in our package which we did not eat a single day...since quality was substandard...plates are not clean also breakfast is served beach side which you may think is romantic ...but not when you see flies and soiled table cloths and torn chair cushions! Don’t get me started on the complementary juice...Freshly squeezed out of a can mixed with a equal quantity of water and then served! Disgusting

Parking:
The Hotel has an Open parking but has space to park about six to ten cars, We had hired a car which i left there for the night with an assurance from the hotel that it is absolutely safe.

Location:
The Hotel Location is the best part...Its conveniently located, equidistant almost from the two premiere beaches of goa...I.e. Calangute and Baga.The Hotel is also conveniently located near the most happening place in north goa such as Titos and Mambos for all who love to go clubbing...also loads of shopping options nearby as well along Calangute-Baga road. The approach road is a bit of a problem...the Hotel is actually located a bit inside from the main Calangute-Baga road probably a 6-7min walk inside. Also be ware there is a Hindu cemetery along the approach road to the hotel...may probably creep you out when you’re walking back at night. There is a taxi stand located outside the hotel which is convenient but expensive.

The Front desk & Room Service:
The staff was not helpful took forever to be given rooms. The package included welcome drinks which were less than impressive, actually a lot like coloured water. We booked an Standard AC room with included breakfast the room wasn’t ready at all had to wait for 15-20 mins to get a room also had emailed the hotel staff about my room preferences well in advance but still they did not arrange the specified room which was very disappointing, The room package also included a wine bottle which were not placed in the room had to call room service 4 times to get it! The bell boys are weak cannot carry bags which my wife can pick up! And have to be told at least twice before they can comprehend any instructions

The Room:
We could get a room facing the road since in spite of the booking requesting a pool facing room no care was taken to assure the same... The room was small but neat and comfortable with two bathrooms. The linen was clean, air conditioner was running and taps and flush were working. The bathroom was compact and reasonably clean. There was a colour TV in the room as well with a remote which again i had to call reception and get it! Also had to get its batteries replaced! That was just plain ridiculous. There was a writing table in the room with a spacious closet as well.
Food & Room Service:
We did not order anything after the breakfast episode. Food was sub-standard. Service was abysmal.

Overall:
On the whole, the hotel is a good option for the budget traveller and for short stays where you just want to sleep and travel the remaining part of the day. There are several nice options to dine nearby and on the beach. I would recommend the Infantaria for breakfasts, there is a SUBWAY sandwich shop just outside the hotel lane if it tickles your fancy, other restaurants such as O’pescador and Manchester United Cafe are close by and good places to Eat n’Drink.In terms of ratings i will give it a 2.75 on 5.

Nice location.......just a 3-5 min walk to the beach.

Do not get fooled by the pictures posted on the website.

Average hotel, highly priced according to the facilities provided.
Temporary restaurant- moulded plastic furniture
Dirty rooms- sand everywhere
rooms facing pool get a typical stench from the backside
rooms on the entrance have a stale smell.
old mattresses, bad pillows, poor linen- nothing of hotel type
the bar is semi covered- no covered place to sit......open place with plastic furniture

Choose this hotel only if you want to hangout on the beaches.- better sleep also at the beach.

This was my first trip to goa and i chooses this hotel for beach location .
Let me begin with Good and bad points
1) Rooms as Ok Ok . You should not expect this as Three star property with bad washroom. its like a 2 star property.I got a very good deal from yatra so i opted this hotel . if you are spending more you can look for some other hotels as well
2)Location : Good point : hotel is on the beach.with some chairs and umbrella available on beach from hotel itself and you can enjoy the sun ..if you want bike on rent you can easly get outside from this hotel.

Bad point : the way from main road to hotel is very scary in night..This hotel is beside shamshan bhhomie ..there will be 10-15 people (bike on retal ) outside the gate of this hotel , if you are travelling with your family you may not find that good as alwasys they stares at you.. we use to go out not through this gate but via beach gate..

Also note that in night if you want to enjoy the beach this may not be good place as this seems to be first hotel in the beach side(from calungate).you will not find any hotels or resturents on the left of this hotel..if you move towards baga beach you will find may good restaurants there. with good music which you can really enjoy..your dinner..we never had dinner in this hotel but preferred others resturents towards baga beach with some music..
3) Food :Food is ok ok . good thing is BF is served on the beach side so you can enjoy ..Bad thing is place is not hygenic..Tables towels are very dirty and they are not changing them.. Food variety is not much ...not as 3 start hotels ...but ok ok..

I had read some scary reviews of the place, but luckily i had quite a good stay.
The service and staff were cheerful and friendly, being pretty prompt on most things asked for. The rooms were neat and clean. Like all resorts on the beach, they had a good shack on the beach. Sun-beds thru the day and chairs later int he evening next to the sea.
The room view i had faced the reception and garden, so there wasn't much to see there.

They had a good swimming pool in the hotel itself. Our package also had an airport pickup and drop which was carried out smoothly.

They beach is an 8 minute walk from the resort. It is completely thru the hotel property.
The location is just on the border between Baga and Calangute. This stretch of the beach is relatively empty as compared to other parts of Baga and Calangute..

Room Tip: A good location.

We picked this hotel for its location and it is truly in the most happening part of Goa. A small walk from some of the hip joints, eateries and shopping areas. The resort has maintained the small patch of beach right outside their property exclusively for the guests and thus one is not compelled to buy food and drinks to just laze on the beach beds. Though the location is good and rooms decently clean, the staff is one of the most arrogant and non courteous I have encountered. If you are used to being taken care of by well groomed and trained hospitality staff, you would be in for a rude shock. All through our 4 day stay, we were helped/ welcomed/ wished only on 2 occasions. The housekeeping in-charge was abusing/ slapping and shouting at the cleaning staff in front of the guests with a huge sense of pride. When we checked out, 6 staff members just stood standing looking at how a lady was carrying 3 bags from the room, down 2 flights of stairs to the car. If you are going to Goa for partying/ eating and shopping and are going to spend most of your time outside the resort its a good place. Their swimming pool too is well maintained in case you opt to waddle in there, rather than the sea. We were also lucky to get a cheap deal from a travel website and thus ended up paying very little for this place. All in all, decent place.
