“Good”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

It's good place to spend time. Service is also good. Bar and dining is great. Good location on beach side . Rooms are good , swiss cottage looks nice . My be my next stay is swiss cottage. Check in and check out time is little issue because they are very concerned about it . It may looks little rude to customers. Apart from that it's really a good stay for us.

O.K bad things first.Check-in was extremely slow (though we had a pre-paid confirmed booking and had called up three times in advance to request quick check-in!!)and they make you sit (or rather stand around...limited seating) with dozens of others at the reception which is un-airconditioned.sheer torture in the sweltering heat :P !! The owner has indeed brought a new meaning to maximum utilisation of space!!The proximity of the rooms to each other(they are tightly packed up in the property leaving just feet space to walk!!however to our luck we got an extreme corner room (executive suite) away from the noisy pool and restaurant.

However we would again want to come and stay sometime in future for these reasons:

1.The Beach is just few yards away and though a part of the same famous calangute beach ,its almost like a private beach and we loved the beach experience without the crowds.
2. The rooms are very clean and spacious...(no balcony on ground floor though :( )the mini bar is fully stocked with chilled juices and other stuff and snacks are available for the kids(all chargeable if used but reasonably higher than mrp)
3. The food is too good...we never wanted to have food in the resort but ended up having 3 meals at the resort itself.the complimentary breakfast is good enough though the restaurant gets a bit congested during the breakfast (we went on early morning stroll on the beach and had our breakfast in relative peace and quiet at 8 am the first day)
4. the room service and the restaurant waiter service was excellent...very quick and friendly :)
The taxis are available right outside the resort.
all in all a pleasant stay!

Room Tip: away from restaurant and pool area...cottages have better privacy

extremely small room with zero ventilation, stinky room(bathroom is so small that you cannot open its door fully, you have to squueze into it(room no 317), AC was not working properly, congested place, walls are made of cardboards and you can hear even if somebody is whispering in thenext room and vise versa...all you want to do is runaway from this place...not worth the money

They say a resort is a place to relax enjoy and take a step back from ur busy and overburdened life. Well if u think this is the place think again
*We booked for 16 ppl 8 rooms top category .
1. We arrived to find our rooms sold to other guests even though we made bookings a month and a half prior and again confirmed a day before arrival .
2. We were denied service for an extra towels while returning from pools like why would someone do that it's called hospitality for a reason. And on top of that arguments by the staff.
3. Rooms were cramped with air conditioning issues, serious insects issues with ants on the wall .
4.Housekeeping to them was a joke I think I asked them to service the room till I come back in the evening just to find everything exactly the way it was and when I called the housekeeping the guy on the phone tells me SORRY I was left speechless and I hang up the phone in disappointment . Till the day we checked out the bathroom was not serviced properly.
5. When i was checking out I was charged for room service used by some other random guest.

Overall this hotel is a no go for any person who wishes to get his money's worth . So it's best if u stay away instead of at this property .

Had heard a lot about this property but was very disappointed with the experience.
First we got our rooms very late like almost 1 hour late.
Second F&B services were even worse after ordering we had to wait for almost 45 mins to get the food that too some starters came in after the main course.
Most importantly the billing was completely wayward, instead of the 13 beers we had, they charged us for 22 after telling them they rectified it and said by mistake they added the bill for the people sitting on another table.
Housekeeping was very slow too before going out of the room in the morning I asked them to clean it after I came back in the afternoon it was still lying the same way it seems they forgot.
We were 25 of us including kids and I had booked our transfers to and from the station, while going back they conveniently forgot that as both their 25 seater coaches were out for sight seeing and they we can arrange from outside at Rs.1000 extra but we managed to get it from outside at the same cost.
Overall a very bad experience for a very well known property. The staff said that please come back in Nov or Dec to get better service, I mean what the .....

Hotel is bang on right place to stay in Goa, i booked premium room which was expensive than Swiss cottage, but i will recommend to book Swiss cottage.... as i asked management to show your Swiss cottage... it is newly made... and hence good one.... Its right on beach.... so do book candle light dinner ... which was at normal price..... the only problem i faced was no availability for Airport drop facility....It should be there as the amount charged by hotels is good enough to accommodate it lyk other hotels...
Room- was ok(as per price charged)
Breakfast- Not good ( except if you are egg lover)
Sight- very good
travel assistance- Hotel to airport- poor

Room Tip: Do not except big entrance hotel.... it is inside small road going through village... but nice hote...
