Our flight got delayed and by the time we reached Goa, it was 10.30 pm (after getting delayed almost by 3 hours). The Innova was there waiting for us and we were driven to the hotel. Enroute, got a call from their hotel staff, who informed us that as the buffet was about to close down, they would keep dishes from the buffet for us. It was really thoughtful and I was really surprised at their meticulous planning.
The room size is big, though I would not call it a suite, it does have a separate sitting and sleeping area. It is not a huge property, though it is compact it has lot of open spaces to breath.
When we checked into our rooms at 11.30 hot food was laid down in our rooms. The food here was amazing (especially lunch and dinner buffets). The buffet menu was never repeated during our 5 nights of stay. In fact, me and my family think that we had put on some weight because of their food taste. But, breakfast was just ok, as if their trainee chefs were handing this duty.
The service was forever good. I had only one bad experience during one night with their Restaurant captain. My little one was asleep and hence wifey wanted her dinner in the room. I went down and spoke to one of the waiters, if I could carry food for my wife for which he was OK. when I was about to take my food, their captain came running and the look of his face was like catching a terrorist red-handed. As he said it is not allowed, I was ok for the ala-carte room service and went back to my room not wanting to create a scene.
But, within 5 minutes another waiter came with the food himself for apologizing on his captain's behavior. Even though I stayed for 3 more nights after the incident the captain avoided meeting me rather than having a frank chat with me.
Except this incident, the entire staff was very friendly and their reservations manager Prashant was very helpful in getting the rooms reserved during their peak season.
They even have an in house bakery, from where you can buy freshly baked delicacies.
Please note that it is in Arpora and not in Baga, though it is about 2 minutes bike ride to Baga.
