We stayed here in the month of Sept for 3 nights. Overall the experience is fantastic. Although small, it has everything that satisfies a couple who look forward exploring south of Goa. This place is conveniently located off the main highway connecting south of Goa to Karwar. A 2 km drive from the highway takes you directly to this place. The theme of the resort as name suggests is Garden, lush greenery all around the wooden cabins well-appointed around the nice little swimming pool. We loved everything, the pool, the cabin itself, proximity to beaches etc. The staff was courteous, well behaved and very responsible. The only minuses if i have to mentioned are
1. TV didn't have too many channels, my favorite new channel was grainy and i missed regular 10 mins new updates before retiring.
2. Since our room was located well inside far away from reception, we hardly got covered by WIFI, the signal strength was so bad that we couldn't use WIFI at all.
3. Considering it was off season restaurant missed usual crowd hence food was so so ..
Other than these everything else was fantastic, the arrival & check-in formalities, breakfast buffet, room service everything.. One thing worth mentioning was during checkout the lady staff visited our room for helping us with luggage movement, checked for additional cables connected to TV & got us back our forgotten camera cable. This kind of service is truly amazing and frankly unheard off. I like to appreciate every staff of this resort and i really wish to be back here this summer.
