“Delightful”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I love places like this – tasteful (charming, eve), very comfortable, hospitable, and not too commercial or ostentatious. Especially with the monsoon special rates, we got very good value for the money. In fact on Saturday they had a 5 hour completely free bottomless drinks and delicious Spanish food with live music brunch. Free. Combine that with a pool and we were in heaven. At first I didn’t think we’d need a pool but given that the beach wasn’t that safe to swim at this time of year it was critical. Aside from occasional slightly less than ideal service and food (most was great) we were very happy with our choice to stay here. Oh and did I mention the really comfy beds?!

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony

Looking forward to hosting you again on your next visit. Pankaj

I stayed here for 4 days and the overall experience was excellent. The staff was good and cooperative specially Pravin. Rooms are spacious and clean. The location of this hotel is also good with a river side and just 10 mns walking to Baga Beach. Breakfast was too good.

Within the price range its the Best option for stay in Goa.

I had planned a 4 day trip to Goa for the Independence day weekend, and had chanced upon 16 degrees North. The reviews were promising and we took a chance with this boutique hotel.. And we were pleasantly surprised.
Pros -
1) Well maintained rooms
2) Nice decor
3) Quiet - without the hustle bustle of Baga
4) Extremely hospitable staff - Special mention of Praveen, Tereasa and Hari (I hope I got the names right)
5) All of this fits right in your budget
6) Just the right food - not quite an expansive and confusing menu.

Cons
1) Not much.. Maybe the walk back from the Tito's lane (post the late night parties) seemed longer than 1.5 kms.. ;-)

Overall - a great experience, and I hope to visit them soon.

Room Tip: Go for the premium rooms with a river view...

This was a short trip to Goa for some personal business and i booked this hotel after reading reviews on trip advisor.
Nice and Cozy property near Baga ( 15-20 mins Walk/10min bike or cab)
Away from hustle and bustle of Flamboyant Baga however not that far

Few Negative points to begin with

-Housekeeping and Room Service seam bit tired and tied up they were in hurry always was little Disappointed.
- Check Out was done in very Incorrect manner where staff was interested in checking room first before we leave and throw bags where we were telling them to be cautious.
- We didn't book Rooms with Breakfast being late riser and ordered every morning however Quantity of same breakfast varied every day,couldn't understand why ?
-Entrance to the Property is not well Lit to Identify the Property and guide guest to walk inside late nights as it was dark at times
-Didn't quite like Room 303 Compared to other Rooms i saw, Room in the Corner with Swimming and Baga River View Seems Bigger and Better.
-Felt the need of better ventilation or exhaust fan in Bathroom as felt bit stocky

Now Good Things.
-Reservation was made through Email and Carol did an amazing job of handling each and every email i have sent and in a professional manner, all email were answered and every request was taken into consideration was really Impressed.
-This is an Amazing property with beautiful Ambience the moment you enter you feel this is an Upmarket CHIC hotel just loved the Interiors and Lively Environment.
- Front Office Staff Reagan and Pravin were very helpful and every request was taken care of with a smile and Efficiency.
-Rooms are Spacious and Airy, Decor is Top notch to compete with any 4-5 Star Category.
-Bed was really very Comfortable and Relaxing.
-Free WIFi was amazing in the Lobby and really Fast to Browse.
- Amazing Location Opp Baga River Close to Baga however Calm and Relaxing.
- The only Sound you could here is Peacocks Scream in the Morning and Afternoon none whatsoever to disturb you.
- For the PRice Paid trust me i couldn't ask for Anything better.
Last but not the least propertys swimming pool was really very clean and well maintianed i went in off season to see they clean water regular and safety of customers were kept in mind

As I said for the price i paid this is the BEST i could ask for.
Opp Baga River short distance from happening BAGA beach area, I love the location.
I recommend this to anyone who wants a good night sleep in the lap of luxury and nature which is safe and looking for upmarket CHIC and SAUVE property not very far from beach by car and still Quiet and Serene

Kudos Guys Keep up the Good Work
I SHALL RETURN SOON :-)

Room Tip: Choose a corner room they have Baga River view and Swimming Pool View.

Dear guest, thank you for your stay at our hotel and honest review on Tripadvisor. Guests like you inspire us to lift the standard of services. We are really delighted that you compared us to 5 star hotels and loved the decor.
We have completely well lit the entrance now which was partially unoperational due to incessant goa rains. The curtains have been taken care of, for better mornings. My apologies for the delay in check out which we observed was due to several check ins at a time. However we are working on a faster and more efficient check out.
We are delighted to announce Saturday brunches with unlimited drinks and food with live music. May be this would add to your overall experiences in our property in future. Thanks again. Pankaj.

Just back. Stayed here for 2 nights 6-8 August.

Dislikes:
1. No ice bucket coz of off-season. C'mon. Really? Are you kidding me?
2. No sea food. I had to go to nearby Britto's after a long tiring day. I've never eaten chicken in Goa, only live on seafood when i'm there.
3. When you go out & remove the room key, the refrigerator also switches off. Keep a separate power point for the fridge please.
4. Not enough lighting on the approach touching the main road. Since there are a few steps, the black stone (kadappa) makes it harder to see & you may see yourself trip at night.
5. (This is my personal grouse; i may be demanding here) Please provide darker curtains as the corner room 301 has windows on 2 sides due to which if you had a late night, you're gone whine with the sun lighting up your room early.

On the brighter side, your staff was very polite. Breakfast on both days was decent.

Season or Off-season, some quality standards ought to be maintained. Please take this as constructive criticism & improve.

Hi Anil, thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in goa. Firstly my apologies for your inconveniences. Subsequent to your response, I had an elaborate meeting with my staff. We have ensured that an ice bucket is made available to all our guests through out the year. As for the entrance lights, it had got tripped for few nights due to heavy rain. We have fixed an emergency light and the full entrance is well lit up.
We have been putting efforts to serve better dining experiences to all our guests. From September, we would be starting a fully reworked dining menu and renovated restaurant. My apologies once again for non availability of sea food during your stay. Usually during low season and low occupancy in monsoon, we take guest requests much in advance and try serving fresh sea food. I am sure, next time around my team will do their best for your comfortable stay.

I stayed in this small boutique hotel with two of my friends in first week of July 2013.
Overall the experience was very good.
The hotel rooms are nice and cozy, the staff is very helpful and cheerful.
I would especially like to mention the name of PRAVIN. He was very helpful and always greeted us with a smile and helped us get a car and gave us info about places to visit...
All in all the hotel delivered what it promised.

Negative - Not any really.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the third floor or above with the series 302, 303
