Although on arrival I was given a good room over looking the pool area - much better than my previous visit, I have to say I was disappointed with the general hotel this time round.
The staff are fab clean the rooms daily with clean sheets & towels & the bar area & restaurant staff can't do enough for you - even jumping on a scooter to go get ice for my drink....
BUT since my last visit unfortunately the hotel has had an influx of Russian visitors who have been allowed to do & act as they please without any thought for other guests or staff!!!
It wasn't just one group either as some left more of the same would arrive - despite the soft piped music from the bar during the day they were allowed to play their own music box on full volume - buy Old Monk bottles from outside & drink from breakfast through to the following morning sitting at the same tables falling a sleep where they sat. They would order food then leave near full plates untouched & move to another table.
Sometimes they would be moved around then pool - which meant they sat singing & dancing under my balcony all night!
Having to get up early one morning to collect my son from the airport I was very upset as I'd had very little sleep because of the noise they were making - on leaving the hotel there were 3 of them sleeping on the tables & 1 still drinking the police were there & there was paper & bottles all over the floor - when we arrived back we witnessed 1 of them still drinking & another face down in his full breakfast plate!!! No a good impression for my son on his 1st visit to this hotel!!!
When staying for a month I expected to have a few chilled out days within the hotel & enjoy their food as I have previously - due to the managements total lack of authority in controlling the situations that arose I felt uncomfortable staying around the pool area - in deed the only afternoon I did sit there witnessed a verbally aggressive rant by a Russian man on a British women including threading to kill her! The staff walked the other way & even when Kevin arrived he just took there CD player from them only to return it later for them to continue to blast out the trance music!!
So although I did enjoy my time in Goa & met some new friends from the hotel which I will enjoy meeting again i very much doubt it will be at the Ticlo - especially seeing the price hike for next year!!!
