Stayed there for 4D & 5N. Overall not satisfied with the hospitality. We were 3 couples so booked a 3 room Villa but the 3rd room was too small . When contacted the Manager , he upgraded to 4 room Villa @ a cost of 5000/- per couple . We felt cheated but had no option. In the 4 room Villa they made the 4th room where there was a kitchen in 3 room Villa. Over all the room were not upto the mark. The geyser was not working , the safe was not working they had to change couple of times. The Kids recreational room was pathetic. They announced for Housie , Rain Dance , nothing took place . As it was raining during our visit so we stayed at the hotel but there was no activity going on there . The pool side bar where they were serving complimentary drinks shut down the lights , music by 10 pm even though we were sitting there.
Overall , not a pleasant experience . OK for company meetings but for families going Goa would recommend to stay in a Hotel having a private Beach . One such hotel is Cida De Goa having private beach , Disc & casino.
