“Worst place In goa”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

We were four friends who went for a weekend and thought it would be a decent place to stay being in north goa but they have the Worst rooms, we were charges 7500 rs per night but not even worth 1000 rs per night. Staff very slow and unprofessional, except for Amit who was the duty manager during our stay. He tried to help and change our rooms but none of the rooms were worth it. Food is ok, but there was no water in the bathrooms, almost zero amenities. Grasshoppers and frogs roaming around everywhere and found inside the rooms. Security personals were rude outside. Wen we tried to ask for our refund so that we could change hotels we weren't given any and had to stay cause of money paid in advance. Over all very bad experience. Will never recommend anyone to stay here.

I have just returned from the Sun Village hotel, at Baga, Arpora, in Goa. Location isn't really important in Goa as the taxi's are so cheap. I have been to the same hotel 3 times now and they have started to upgrade a bit now and I believe it's a perfect base. I was in a group of six and within the first week we had all been struck down with D&V but I will say this has never been a problem on previous visits. When we were ill, the staff were absolutely fantastic and they couldn't do enough to help, Papiou, a waiter was a star and made us all Lime & Soda, Sweet & Salty and it really helped settle our stomachs. The selection of food is not good unless you are a curry lover, however the Chef (Roque, AKA Rocky) will always cook up something off menu if you ask him and he is happy to take your comments (good or bad). They have really good nights up on the lawns but other than that the entertainment is a bit lacking. having said that I have been to that hotel 3 times and would go again because there is plenty to do outside, a big Saturday night market about 5 minutes walk up the road, make sure you take torches with you as power cuts tend to happen and street lighting is poor. there are some great restaurants, 3D's (Formally East meets West) at Baga town, For Goan and International foods, Jamies in Baga town, once again Goan and international food and then there's my favorite restaurant, 10 minutes walk from the Sun Village, called Nicks Place. It is co-owned by Nick, a Goan gentleman , Bob & Linda a couple who go out of the way to make you welcome whether your passing and just want some refreshment or having an evening out for a meal and some good music. The food there is spot on and they have specialist chefs for the different cultures of food, Steak and onion pie is gorgeous, Sunday lunch is to die for, they do a great range of British food, they also do traditional Goan dishes, Indian food (like we get at home) Chinese noodles in fact I think they could put up almost any meal you fancy. The beaches I would recommend are Morgim Beach = 4* Mandrem Beach = 4* and Ashevem Beach = 5* personal opinions will obviously vary. Taxi's to all 3 beaches will cost around Rs 1000 = Approx £10 for a return journey and the driver waits for you however long you decide to stay. Don't have ice at the beaches!!!!!!!! Outside the hotel is messy but the hotel itself is spotless.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the pool but the rooms above the reception area have been refurbished and have a...

The trip was wonderful if I forget about the hotel disaster. The blunder began from cleartrip end which books my flight to Goa at 5.30 am and the hotel does not let me check in till 2 pm!!! What was I expected to do in those 6 hours? Just sit in the lobby with my luggage and waste my time? I was not allowed an early check in but was forced to check out on time as there was early check in by another group.
The hotel Sun village is a beautiful place and well maintained too. But the staff was non cooperative on many occasions.. They seemed like bonded by clock and nothing else. Did not have basic first aid box as well!!
The hotel is An ideal place only for people who cannot argue add just accept whatever is given.
And for recreation facility (table tennis), hotel should not ask for deposit.
I am not going there again for sure!!
