“great holiday”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Just returned from 14 night stay at the Somy.After a 27 hour delay we were just glad to finally get there.We stayed from 16th march till 31st.The hotel was ok room was ok we got one that had been newly decorated not much of a view though just a wall but we didnt sit out so this didnt matter.All the staff are really friendly will do anything for you nothing is to much trouble,room boys are really good if you give them your key they,ll clean everyday and change your beds and towels but we found every couple of days to be enough.The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to beach or just a few mins in a taxi and is in easy reach of plenty of bars restaurants and shops.We were on b&b basis but didnt go for breakfast much as only things on offer were toast and eggs .We went to candolim a few times to eat as there is live music in most of the restaurants most nights and if you just want to people watch go to titos lane in baga you can just sit and watch there crazy driving we loved it.

Room Tip: we stayed in room I-6 which was fine if you want a pool view which they call there premier rooms you...

Stayed at the So my in late February and was pleasantly surprised on how nice it was for the money,
STAFF- they were all friendly and could not do enough for you, the room cleaners were polite and well mannered, the reception staff would bend over backwards to help, shame the breakfast team were blunt and more interested in watching telly than helping with breakfast.

HOTEL- The hotel was clean and tidy and has a great pool, the room had a fridge and telly and was very spacious, the pool facing rooms are the best as the rear facing rooms look over what can only be described as a rubbish tip. The rooms are cleaned daily if required and i can honestly say that the staff are trustworthy and never touched my belongings or money.

LOCATION- 10 minutes walk to the beach but there is a taxi rank outside the hotel and for a pound they will take you down to the beach. Loads of bars and restaurants within spitting distance, special mention to the Why Not bar, friendly staff and good food, Fire and Ice was great food and service and Lazy Days did a great breakfast and is spotlessly clean.

PLACES NOT TO MISS- Public bar, located about 500 meters up the road on the left from the main beach steps, get a drink on the way back to the hotel after a day on the beach, its very basic but good for people watching and you can flag down one of the many sellers and try the snacks and cakes, VERY CHEAP DRINKS!

Tito's lane for entertainment, try dunking your feet in the fish tanks, for £2 the fish swim up and nibble on your feet weird feeling but your feet fell great afterwards.

East meets West- what can i say apart from superb food, great service, clean and the staff and owner are extremely friendly. Go there for a special treat, the best restaurant in the whole of the region. I had the seafood platter (Lobster, various fishes and massive prawns) a starter, desert a bottle of wine, beer and 2 cocktail all for £20, it was fantastic.

The Night market on Saturdays is worth a visit, wonder around the stalls or stop and watch a act whilst trying one of the many varieties of food that is on offer.

Go to Apora market on Wednesday walk along to Baga and take the boat round for a pound, when you are bored of shopping you can relax in one of the beach bars.

Goa is a great holiday, good value for money and fantastic people, if you want 5 star you wont enjoy it but if you want to get a new experience every day and can see past the poverty there is nowhere better.

Room Tip: Ask for a Pool facing room.

The place looks good from the exterior & tats about it!! Nothin else is good about it!! Stayed @P3 next to the reception!! To start off the Manager @reception "Mr. Amol Sawant" only courteous to the foreigner... Domestic travellers deserve no respect according to him!! He was rude, unhelpful & clearly biased towards the foreign guests!! U don't wanna spend a day @ this place as u r not suppose to change ya linens once served by them!! A few housekeeping guys cud actually smile & rest serve the foreigners only!! Worst experience of my lifetime!!! Worst hotel ever!! Only respite is Mr. Sandy Lopez the senior manager who was courteous enuf help us thru this stay for 3 nites!! If ur a domestic traveller please lookout for other options as this place is not meant for us!!!!!!!!!

We were under no illusions as what to expect for our first visit to Goa, we were given a room at the back of the hotel which was drab and depressing so paid £60 to upgrade to a room with a view, later found out that the hotel does this deliberately to get extra money. Rooms are basic but spacious, tip the cleaners early and get very well looked after. Staff all very friendly. Didn't eat there so no opinion on the food, but looked good. Area around the hotel typical India needs a good clean, walking distance to the beach and Calangute centre. Moved to a different hotel in Candolim because of flight delay, better hotel, but preferred the intimacy of the Somy. Very enjoyable stay.

Stayed here 26/01/14 -10/02/14 this is our second stay here and once again thought it was a great place to stay with great location! This year everywhere has had a well needed coat of paint and new block paving which improves it more. All the staff are great and helpful from the room boys, pool boys, bar staff, waiters, management and security. The pool area is lovely and always kept clean, drinks and snacks are cheap and good, never eat here in the evening though as there's too much choice in other local restaurants. Will stay here again when we return to Goa! Well done somy keep up the good work! Adam & Nicola
